** At one extreme are the giant, nonsentient lizards (Dewbacks, Krayt Dragons, and the like), and at the other (in the ExpandedUniverse, at least) are the Falleen, who appear to be green-skinned humans except for their long claws and spinal ridges (and they even have hair!).

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': Killer Croc ''used'' to be just a big strong guy with a skin condition, but he's become more lizard-like over time. He was specifically mutated with a virus by Hush and [[spoiler:the Riddler]] to make him more violent and feral, and less human. By the end of the book it's mentioned he's received the antidote but it ''didn't work''; after War Games, he's more feral than ever and a scientist reveals (shortly before Croc eats her) that there's no way to undo it.

** Before the Lizardmen, there were the Fimir, an early attempt to create a race unique to the ''Warhammer'' universe who were essentially one-eyed lizardfolk. They were never a popular army and quickly faded into obscurity.

* ''BattleForWesnoth'' has the Saurians and the Drakes (both members of the same faction). The former are your average scaled semi-humanoids, the latter mini-dragons.

* ''VideoGame/Fate''. Lizardmen appear as enemies who can wield weapons like swords, clubs, bows and crossbows. They come in two flavors: Standard Lizardmen and the much more powerful [[PaletteSwap Komodo Warriors]]. The fourth sequel, ''The Cursed King'', introduces Horned Lizardmen which resemble bipedal Horned Toads.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'': Reptile men are fairly typical Lizard Folk. They’re one of the subterranean animal people, living in in small bands BeneathTheEarth and attacking intruders with spears and blowguns. In addition, the multitude of aboveground humanoid animals includes actual lizard men, saltwater crocodile men, alligator men, monitor lizard men, gila monster men, skink men and chameleon men.

** Lizardmen give this race a complete army and civilization (The FantasyCounterpartCulture of [[{{Mayincatec}} various Mesoamerican civilizations]], at that). Their leaders are a priestly [[FantasticCasteSystem caste]] of magic using Frog Folk - the Slann, who are the most ancient surviving civilization in the Warhammer setting. Other lizardmen races include the the Skinks (small and skittish skirmishers and wizards), the [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs Saurus]] ([[ProudWarriorRaceGuy strong, ruthless and single-minded warriors]]) and the Kroxigor ([[SmashMook huge, strong]], [[DumbMuscle not overly bright]] saurians who work both as heavy support fighters and manual labour). They were created as servants to [[AncientAstronauts the Old Ones]] (described as fairly reptilian themselves). Their armies also make liberal use of distinctly dinosaurian monsters.

Unusually for this trope, they're on the side of good, being opposed to Chaos, the Skaven, and other evil races, and the last remnants of a once-proud civilization. However, they're generally hostile towards the other good races as well, though the fact that they keep trying to colonize their lands probably doesn't help.

Added DiffLines:

* Zarathan, the setting of ''Literature/TheBalancedSword'', has two prominent types of reptile folk:
** The ''mazakh'' are the bad-guy type; they're demon-worshippers and commonly appear as mooks. The point is made, however, that their unpleasantness is due to culture and upbringing, not inherent nature, and that non-evil members of the species can and do exist (though they tend to call themselves something other than ''mazakh'').
** The Saurans are a larger and more impressive type of lizard folk (the appendix uses the phrase "miniature Godzilla"), reputedly descended from dragons, who fill the setting's ancient and advanced civilization role.
