Dropping this section entirely, it's too hard to get right
!! In Human Culture While Charmander and its evolutions are not true Dragon-type Pokémon (except when Mega Evolved), the line is much more common and widely recognized in human culture than most true Dragon-types. In particular, Charizard has often been depicted in fiction and folklore, usually as a [[DragonsPreferPrincesses vicious, fire-breathing beast with a knack for kidnapping princesses]]. In film, Charizard has served various roles within the fantasy genre, ranging from [[Film/{{Dragonheart}} the hero's companion in a somewhat obscure medieval adventure film]] to a fast-talking Ponyta's romantic interest in a series of [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} animated movies starring a green Conkeldurr]]. Charizard also frequently appears in animated television shows, sometimes as an antagonist, and sometimes (usually in [[MerchandiseDriven toy-based cartoons]]) as a member of the hero's team or as a [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} sentient transforming robot]].

Rewriting to be less specific, as per forum thread
Charizard also frequently appears in televised cartoons, and has been depicted twice in a certain [[Franchise/{{Transformers}} toy-based transforming robot franchise]] - the primary villain of [[WesternAnimation/BeastWars one series]] has a Mega Charizard Y alternate mode (upgraded from a Tyrantrum), and an antagonist in [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime a more recent series]] transforms into an alien-looking Mega Charizard X. Oddly enough, Mega Charizard X appears in [[Franchise/YuGiOh a children's card game and anime]] as the counterpart to Reshiram, rather than FanonPokedex/{{Zekrom}} serving this role - it is emphasized that, while Charizard X is quite a bit weaker than its legendary counterpart, it also has greater potential. Of note is that the two Pokémon share a type combination, which may have factored into this strange depiction.

As Mega Charizard X, Charizard gains extra keratin in its claws, making them even harder than usual and increasing the potency of its physical attacks. This ability, appropriately, is officially known as "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tough Claws]]". Its pyrosac also becomes much more resistant to heat and react to its enzymes more rapidly, which is marked by its flames changing from red to a much hotter blue. In this form, Charizard tends to expel a constant stream of fire from its mouth, giving the appearance of a mustache. It has also been confirmed that Mega Charizard X changes from a Fire/Flying type to a Fire/Dragon type. Due to Charizard's similarity to stereotypical Dragon-type Pokémon in all three forms, scientists have theorized that its Dragon typing may be some sort of hidden ancestral trait that can only be brought out in modern specimens by Mega Evolution.

This ability, appropriately, has been popularly labeled as "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Tough Claws]]". Its pyrosacs also become much more resistant to heat and react to its enzymes more rapidly, which is marked by its flames changing from red to a much hotter blue.

It has also been confirmed that Mega Charizard X changes from a Fire/Flying type to a Fire/Dragon type. Due to Charizard's similarity to stereotypical Dragon-type Pokémon in all three forms, scientists have theorized that its Dragon typing may be some sort of hidden ancestral trait that can only be brought out in modern specimens by Mega Evolution. As Mega Charizard Y, Charizard's wings develop even further, allowing it to reach even greater altitudes during flight, with the wings on its forearms acting as stabilizers. Similar to FanonPokedex/{{Groudon}}, it also gains the ability to locally enhance the effects of sunlight during a battle. This is complimented by further development of the muscles in its pyrosacs; both of these modifications allow it to expel fire with much greater intensity.

Making text flow a bit better
Two types of Mega Stone have been discovered to work with Charizard, known as "Charizardite X/Y", and are currently being researched by Professor Augustine Sycamore of the Kalos region. Under the influence of Charizardite Y, Charizard Mega Evolves into '''Mega Charizard Y'''. It grows a third horn on its head and its wings increase in size. It also gains a pair of smaller secondary wings on its arms. Charizardite X transforms Charizard into '''Mega Charizard X''', and presents even more drastic changes in the Pokémon; Charizard's skin color changes to primarily black with a blue underbelly and neon blue horn tips, making it somewhat resemble the legendary FanonPokedex/{{Zekrom}}. Its wings change to a more jagged shape, and it grows a pair of blue horns on each shoulder.
