The Dragon Medium Helm (also called the d med or dragon med) is the second strongest medium helmet in RuneScape behind Dharok's helm. It was the first piece of dragon armour to be released into the game. It may be enchanted by Pikkupstix at level 50 Summoning, which will enable it to store summoning scrolls, turning the helmet pink. Previously, if a male player wore the helmet the horns were straight, but if a female player wore it the horns were curved and longer. However, on 19 May, 2009, Jagex updated the dragon med helm so that it looked more similar in appearance between the two genders.

The helmet suffers from a stereotype in which it may be labelled as a "noob" helmet, due to its popularity with inexperienced and/or medium level players along with its cheap price. However the helmet was once held in high regard as being the best defence offering helmet in the game. It also has a fairly good slash bonus, which is 6 more than the widely popular Helm of Neitiznot.

This helm once cost upwards of 2 million coins, but with the release of the Barrows helmets, the Helm of neitiznot, the Dragon full helm and the Grand Exchange, the price dropped dramatically.

There was a minor scam going around that allows people to sell uncut rubies for 65k. Scammers would put in a dragon med helm, swap it out quickly for an uncut ruby, and get 65k. Jagex prevented this with the trade updates, wherein a flashing exclamation mark would appear when a change was made and another screen was added where the buyer could see what he was buying. Another way that Jagex prevented the scam was the trade limit that prevented a trade that had an unbalanced pay.

As with most dragon equipment, this item cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
