* There is at least one tribe of crocodile-type lizardmen in ''ComicBook/RedSonja'': ''The Art of Blood and Fire'' living in competition with the bog dwellers. They're obscure enough that professional adventurer Sonja has never heard of them [[AlwaysChaoticEvil (though she catches on quickly)]]. According to Gribaldi their eggs and young are pretty tasty.

* ''VideoGame/{{Wizardry}}'' : Lizardmen are a playable race. They're strong, tough, fast, resistant to acid, resistant to psionics... and comparing their intelligence to a sack of potatoes would be a grave [[InsultToRocks insult to the spuds]].

* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'': The Viashino creature type represents humanoid lizards fond on various planes. Regardless of their plane of origin, they are known to share a relationship with dragons, as they are, alongside true dragons and the four-limbed flying drakes, descended from the victors of a civil war between the god-like Elder Dragons of the multiverse’s distant past. They are almost always aligned with red, the color of (among other things) chaos, emotion, impulsivity and barbarians.

** The viashino of Dominaria live in clans throughout the volcanic mountains of Shiv

** The viashino
of Lizard folk.Alara resemble hulking humanoid crocodiles and live in the red-aligned shard of Jund, a DeathWorld of volcanoes, swamps and jungles full of monsters and barbarians and ruled by dragons. They live in groups known as “thrashes”, and unlike other viashino may not be descended from dragons, but instead share ancestry with the nonsapient crocodiles that inhabit Naya, the green-aligned shard. After the shards fused once more, some viashino adopted aetherium technology to give themselves wings, forming the [[http://magiccards.info/query?q=%21Skyclaw+thrash Skyclaw Thrash]].

** The Expanded Universe includes Barabels, who are predatory pack-hunters but also generally good guys, though since the Vong War they are somewhat endangered. Besides that there's, well, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Reptilian_sentient_species everything on this list.]]

* ''[[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Elder Scrolls]]'': The Argonians are a smaller variety.

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsArena Arena]]'' has an enemy type called Lizard Men, hostile reptilian troglodytes described as "once thought to be distant cousins of the argonians [...] whose use of language stretches only far enough to communicate the location of their prey to the rest of their hunting party, which then move to attack and feed". Interestingly, they resemble the [[EvolutionaryRetcon modern Argonian design]] much more than ''Arena'''s [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness version]], where they resembled gray-skinned zombies more than reptiles.
