--> When you purchase the Bone Dragon, not only do you get a realistic facsimile of a dragon, you also get those classic dragon traits - the gift of flight, red-hot fiery breath, and a predilection for murder! [[Main/ButWaitTheresMore BUT THERE'S MORE-]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemGaiden,'' one of the few Fire Emblem games to include monsters as enemies, has Draco Zombies as [[BossInMooksClothing very powerful enemy units]] who attack by biting. The bizarre PhysicalGod Duma appears as a slime-covered dragon-shaped being with exposed muscle and bone, best depicted in [[http://fav.me/d4c284a this fanart]]. Unlike most examples, Duma is fully sentient and has a sense of honor.

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones'', the Draco Zombie class returns is a boss of the second-to-last map now using a poisonous BreathWeapon known as ''Wretched Air.'' On the penultimate map, there are ''two''. And on the final map, the BigBad may choose to summon these as ''mooks''. Gets worse in the [[BrutalBonusLevel Lagdou Ruins]], where the final map features no fewer than ''seven'' of them. Now you know why you've been saving up all those S-Ranked weapons. Thankfully, [[AntiAir bows are also effective against them]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' the Malig Knight class combines this with DragonRider as they ride Undead Wyverns.

Often the most {{badass}} type of undead, dracoliches are never to be taken lightly. They are always heavy hitting monsters, if not outright bosses. Any {{Necromancer}} should do well to seek to have one, or [[ScaledUp outright become one]]. It's not a rare thing, however, for these dragons to be weaker than their regular, living counterparts as they inherit the weaknesses of TheUndead like ReviveKillsZombie while Dragons rarely have such exploitable flaws. But in some cases, they might instead be [[OurLichesAreDifferent literal liches]], which as long as their SoulJar is undamaged, they are NighInvulnerable, making them stronger than regular dragons.

** The {{Trope Namer|s}} is of course the Dracolich, which combines the worst aspects of a Dragon and a [[OurLichesAreDifferent Lich]]. Across the various editions, Zombie, common Skeleton (weaker and stupider then Dracoliches), Ghost, Wraith and Vampire Dragons have all been offered up as well. The advantages and disadvantages of being a dragon undead are all noted. For example, a draconic vampire can't enter a home uninvited... but there's no rule saying he can't just destroy the house.
