* The [=AAnn=] in the ''Literature/HumanxCommonwealth'' series are human-sized carnivorous lizards that have a mutually wary and occasionally hostile relationship with the other Commonwealth species. Among themselves, they have an unspoken custom of rising in status by circumspectly arranging a superior's downfall and replacing them.

* The [[ComicBook/NeilGaimansTeknophage Teknophage]] and his species (at least the newborns before most were extinct) are somewhat the lizard folks they were.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' gives us Toffee. Despite his rather silly name, he's actually the show's most competent villain. For starters, not only has he been awfully close to take Star's wand in a couple occasions, but he's also [[spoiler: upstaged Ludo and taken his role of BigBad.]] There is also Rasticor, a burly bodyguard and bounty hunter. In this universe, lizardmen can apparently regenerate to the point that they can grown back (slowly) from just a severed limb.

** The Lizard Folk give this trope its name (they were "lizard men" in first and second edition, before political correctness kicked in). They're generally depicted as swamp-dwelling tribals, and while not actually evil -- their canon alignment is TrueNeutral -- they don't like humans much. Except as emergency rations.

* Bido from ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' is a somewhat downplayed example. He's a chimera who's part-lizard, and, while he's more human-like than some examples, he's got a tail and visible scales on some parts of his body. Also, he's got a lizard-like ability to easily scale walls.

* The rakoshi from F. Paul Wilson's ''[[RepairmanJack The Tomb]]'' hatch out of eggs and are described in highly reptilian terms, although they don't have scales.

* In the PerryRhodan franchise, the reptilian Topidians from planet Topide are introduced as a not-quite-as-smart-as-human race in "The Vega Sector", number 5 in the American translation. They exhibit foolish traits such as keeping their fleet's high ranking officers in the flagship instead of sending them down to the planet to investigate what is happening first-hand. Cowards! They show up from time to time in later books.
