* ''WesternAnimation/{{Flash Gordon|1979}}'': The Lizard Women

to:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Flash Gordon|1979}}'': The There is a race of sexily dressed Lizard WomenWomen who all serve Ming the Merciless - he even has a few in his harem. In a later episode, we meet a Lizard Man bounty hunter whom Ming hires to capture Flash. But when they crashland on a planet and Flash saves his life, he decides to aid him instead.



* ''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.]]

In this universe, lizardmen can apparently regenerate to the point that they can grown back (slowly) from just a severed limb.

* ''VideoGame/TerraBattle'' has the aptly named Lizardfolk race. The narrations in early chapters describe them as savages who never smile. However, the actual Lizardfolk characters who can join your team has just as much variety in personality and appearance as the other races. One particular trait is that their names always have an aposthrope in them (for example: A'misandra, Piz'fer, Ma'curi)

* ''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.

*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.
