* Ryu from DetectiveAcademyQ is the hero Kyu's friendly rival, a boy in his mid-teens with a passionate hate for injustice[[spoiler: and therefore his criminal-syndicate family]], great fighting skill, and a tendency to desperately seek to help anyone in trouble, girl or boy.

* Kazuma Kiryuu from ''VideoGame/RyuGaGotoku''. In a subversion, though, his rival in the second game is Ryuuji Goda, another dragon-themed character(although he's more a NobleDemon than a full-blown bad guy, and he still exhibits many traits associated with his name).

* Hakuryuu Ren from ''Manga/MagiLabyrinthOfMagic'' is one of the four protagonists, and fittingly enough, his name means "White Dragon".

* Ryu from ''StreetFighter''. His rival is Sagat, who's associated with the tiger. ** Although the kanji used to spell Ryu's name in promotional materials for the original ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'' stood for "prosperity", not "dragon".

* ''PeacemakerKurogane'' has Ichimura Tatsunosuke (where "Tatsu" is the character for the EasternZodiac sign of the dragon) and the HistoricalDomainCharacter Sakamoto Ryoma, whose name is written with the characters for "dragon" and "horse", and who fits the trope quite well.

* "Wooden Sword" Ryuu of ''ShamanKing'', having all but a clear rivalry with a tiger themed character. Instead, his partner spirit has (or, ''[[HeelFaceTurn had]]'') a rivalry with the main character's partner.

* Tatsumaru, Rikimaru's brother in the ''{{Tenchu}}'' series. * A somewhat ambiguous case, but [[AntiHero Ryuuho Tairen]] of ''{{sCRYed}}'' is nominally one of the protagonists of the series, along with Kazuma. His father Ryuu is a pretty decent guy, too.

* Asaga Hiryuu from {{Psyren}} is in fact not the protagonist and in fact is moved OutOfFocus for a bit, although up to that point he was certainly a major character. Otherwise he fits the trope right down to the ground. His rival, the protagonist, isn't associated with tigers, but Hiryuu makes up for it by embracing the dragon theme and teaming up with his friend Tatsuya.

* {{Subverted}} in ''TheLegendOfKorra''--a minor Air Nomad named Ryu appears as a BasementDweller and a StrawLoser, whose personality ranges from "apathetic" to "moody." For what it's worth, his [[{{Tuckerization}} name]] and design are based on [[http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Ki_Hyun_Ryu Ki Hyun Ryu]], who works on the show.

* In ''MobileSuitGundam'', we have Ryu Jose. Though he's not the protagonist, he is the most skilled pilot of the crew in the beginning, is the most likeable, big brother type, and [[spoiler: [[HeroicSacrifice sacrifices]] himself to save his crew. His death is a large reason that the crew shape up and start working together better.]]

* Ryou Saeba of ''CityHunter''. His lechery makes him kind of a weird fit, but he definitely fulfills this trope.

* Ryu from ''Videogame/BreathOfFire''. Many of his companions are tiger-themed to contrast with him, and, well, he's a ''literal'' dragon.

* Dragon Shiryuu from ''SaintSeiya'', except maybe for the personality part. Also counts for his son Ryuuhou from ''SaintSeiyaOmega''. ** Yes, Shiryuu is much calmer and collected than his fellow Bronze Saints. No, it does not stop him from being hot-blooded as all hell.
