Expect some form of {{Sssssnaketalk}}, regardless of whether or not the culture (or species) is actually snake-themed. [[{{Phlegmings}} A mouthful of phlegm or mucus]] is also popular. May overlap with FishPeople, FrogMen or both, depending on how willing the author is to stretch or disregard conventional taxonomy.

* ''VideoGame/DivinityOriginalSinII'' has the ancient empire, which is run by lizard folk, who happen to be extremely haughty and look down on other races, mostly because they think they're descended from dragons ([[spoiler:they are]]). One of your possible protagonists/companions, The Red Prince, is an exiled prince from these lands, hell bent on getting his throne back, and loves to remind the other party members how much better he is than them. He does eat some humble pie during the adventure, though, even if he gets his throne back at the end.

** ''Literature/QuagKeep'', which is set in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''' world of Greyhawk, featured a Lizardman named Gulth as one of the protagonists.
** Norton's Zacathans turn this trope upside down and inside out. Yes, they're reptiles. They're also highly intelligent, ''extremely'' civilized, and tend to be top-level Intelligentsia (having very long lifespans gives them '''lots''' of time to learn a lot of stuff). And they're still outstanding fighters if they have to be, due to reptile hide and Very. Long. Teeth. (Oh yes, and the highest known psi rating in the galaxy, which they keep a Deep Dark Secret.)

* ''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. They also speak in SssnakeTalk. 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.
