** Ironically, monitor lizards/''Varanids'', despite being the lizard family which contains the biggest lizards in the world, only has one member called a dragon: The komodo dragon. The rest of them have to settle with being called mere monitors. (Here's an example: Water dragon is an Agamid lizard roughly the size of a small-to-medium dog, whereas water monitor is an almost-as-big-as-komodo lizard often as long as a human is tall).

* In the Literature/StarTrekEnterpriseRelaunch novels, a battle during the Romulan War takes place on Berengaria VII. Dragons show up to eat Romulans. There's no particular reason for it, but, hey, we're on Berengaria, previously established in throwaway lines of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' as home of the dragons, so letís have them eat people. Also in the StarTrekNovelVerse, Elias Vaughn's childhood history on Berengaria VII probably counts; he was apparently mauled by a dragon at one point. Vaughn had previously been said to originate there; eventually, this bit of trivia made an inevitable linkage to the dragons. Since Vaughn is the sort of character with a highly adventurous background, it's no surprise he apparently had dragon bites where other children had bruised knees. See: Literature/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineRelaunch.

** Charizard is by far the most popular of the original Starter Three, and one of the most publicised Pokemon in media and advertising, rivalling Pikachu and Mewtwo in this regard. Charizard also got ''two'' Mega Evolutions instead of one each for Venusaur and Blastoise, one of which finally makes it an actual part-Dragon type. It also got into ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' as its own character as opposed to part of a three man... [[JustForPun Uh, 'mon]] team. The fact it looks like a big {{Badass}} dragon with a flaming tail may have had something to do with it.

** The Dragon-type exists purely to be awesome (at least outside of the fourth and fifth generation, which feature legendary Pokemon of the type as a part of the plot). They were DeliberatelyOverpowered in the first generation, and a lot of people still think they are the handiest Pokemon to own since they resist [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[GreenThumb Grass]], and [[ShockAndAwe Electric]] attacks, which are common in almost every party. Not only that, but they have some high base stats as well. Also, Dragon type trainers are known for being very badass. [[LittleMissBadass Iris]], [[JerkAss Clair]], [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard Lance]], [[BadassGrandpa Drake, Drayden]], etc. They are so powerful that in the Generation VI games Nintendo created the ridiculously-overpowered Fairy-type with the main intent of giving Garchomp and his mates something to be afraid of.

* The fourth of the new main characters in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Caro Ru Lushe is a dragon summoner. She's accompanied by her silver baby dragon Friedrich. Now the awesome parts: Caro can summon an adult version of Friedrich, that makes her awesome. But the real awesome part: She has a second dragon, Voltaire, a PhysicalGod, that makes her instantly more awesome.
