I have the master archery perk that lets you paralyze targets and a paralysis bow. Is it possible for me to paralyze a dragon? In the time I've played I've not seen it and was just curious.

The master archery perk (Bullseye), paralysis poisons and paralysis enchantments do not affect dragons.

All three tested with my current character against several Ancient and Elder dragons. While I don't believe dragons can be paralysed at all, there is a chance that low-level dragons are vulnerable to effects that high-level dragons are immune to. If anyone notices this, please let me know. – Thaumajig Dec 14 '11 at 6:06
No, all dragons are immune to paralysis. ALL of them. – Adam S Dec 19 '11 at 5:42

You can paralyze dragons. I'm not sure about the enchantment, but you can use the paralyze poison on them and they will stop moving.

This is just false – optus Dec 14 '11 at 16:13
I've tried it before, and it worked. Maybe it was just a glitch, but it stopped moving for a good five seconds. – Etienne Dec 16 '11 at 7:26
