The magic of the cobalt catalyst in facilitating a reaction sequence is represented by the appearance of a golden dragon, hovering in the clouds, on a simple jade plate through the magic art of golden Ruyi. In their Communication on page6512ff., M. Li and F.Y. Kwong describe the formation of dihydronaphthalene derivatives by a cobalt‐catalyzed C?H/C?C/C?H activation sequence.
