* ''ComicBook/TheIncredibleHercules'': Delphyne Gorgon is a much more reptilian take on the classical myth which combines this trope with PerkyGoth, CatholicSchoolGirlsRule and {{Tsundere}} in a DatingCatwoman storyarc.
** Her race, the Gorgons, are portrayed as Lizard-folk with snake-hair, with a few having serpent tails instead of legs. It's stated that the reason why she has legs is because after the Amazons cleared out a Gorgon nest in Atlantis they took some of the Gorgons with them, to interbreed them with humans.

* The field of cryptozoology has its share of reptilian humanoids, including the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lizard_Man_of_Scape_Ore_Swamp Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp]] and the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loveland_Frog Loveland Frog]]. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thetis_lake_monster Thetis Lake Monster]] was described as such, however, one of the witnesses has come forward and said that the encounter was a hoax.



** The ''almost'' comprehensive list of reptilian humanoids that have appeared at some point or another in at least one D&D setting: lizardmen/folk, kobolds, trogloydytes, saurials, cay-men, gator men, chameleon men, yuan-ti, draconians, braxats, asheratis, dragonkin (''another'' humanoid dragon race), firenewts, pterafolk (humanoid pterodactyls), khaastas, ophidians, sarkrith, khumats (humanoid crocodiles), scaled stalkers, and dragonborn (yet ''another'' humanoid dragon race). Almost all of these races where created by the Sarrukh, the Reptilian [[{{Precursor}} Creator Race]], for one purpose or the other).
** The ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' have several breeds of [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs saurials]].
** In TabletopGame/{{Mystara}}, you can find Cay-men (little peaceful dudes), gator men (big ravenous thugs), and chameleon men (weird dragon-worshiping aborigine-analogs). Also [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin turtles and snappers]], if Turtle Folk count here.
*** There's also the Yuan-ti, snake people. Pureblood versions look like people with scales and reptile-like eyes.
** TabletopGame/DarkSun doesn't have lizardfolk [[spoiler: because they were wiped out, except those at the Last Sea]]. It has ssurans instead, who look quite similar (and in the 4th Edition, are identical).

* ''AgeOfWonders'': Lizardmen were a playable race. As they were neutral, both good and evil players could choose them as a second race during the campaign. In the sequel, they got replaced by the draconians.

* ''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 ocassions, but he's also [[spoiler: upstaged Ludo and taken his role of BigBad.]]

* The Dystopians in ''ComicBook/RequiemChevalierVampire''. Dystopians are people that went to hell by committing acts of evil in the name of imperialism and, aside from been reptilians, they resemble the Victorian age British Empire.

*The Tayhil, only implied in ''Fanfic/WithStringsAttached'' (since they'd been wiped out) but overt in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone'', when they were restored to C'hou. They're considered snakemen but fit this trope better, since they're bipedal.

* The ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' episode "Eclipsed" has the Ophidians, who fought humanity "before cities, before writing", and whose spirits now form SealedEvilInACan. They're clearly meant as an AlternateCompanyEquivalent of [[ConanTheBarbarian Conan's]] Serpent Men.

* In ''[[Literature/BardicVoices The Lark and the Wren]]'', Topaz, one of the ladies who works at Lady Amber's establishment, is implied to be one of these. The main character, Rune, doesn't have the temerity to ask exactly what race Topaz is from, but notes that she is humanoid enough to be popular with the patrons that frequent the place, and suspects that close inspection would reveal tiny scales instead of skin.

* ''{{Rifts}}'' has a number of lizard-like races, mainly the plain old Lizardmen, Tautons (Crocodile-men with scorpion tails that worship Egyptian Gods), Gromek, and others. In South America, a peaceful collection of Lizardman tribes was taken over by an organization of evil Dragons who have set up their own religion with Dragons as gods, and have built their own city for the various reptilian races. The Lizardmen, who would rather return to their simple lives along the (greatly-expanded) Amazon are growing increasingly dissatisfied with this arrangement.
* ''MagicTheGathering'': The Viashino creature type can come in either the [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=175064 large and brutish]] or [[http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=96836 small and thieving]] brand of Lizard folk.
