** 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.

* Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick is a ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' parody, so no surprise that this race eventually shows up. They seem to be common minions in the [[TheEmpire Empire of Blood]]. Roy also brings up the "lizardmen - lizardfolk" changeover, with Belkar quipping that "the lizard-feminists must be so proud of you."
** The prequel book Start of Darkness also featured a tribe of swamp-dwelling lizardfolk.

* ''Webcomic/{{Unsounded}}'': Called "two-toes" here, named after the fact that they have, well, two toes per foot. They're pretty small compared to humans though. They used to be subterranean, so they have poor sight and hearing but excellent senses of smell, making them useful as trackers. They're also almost universally treated as a shunned, ignored, and despised servant caste by the human majority.
** Stockyard takes advantage of their status by [[spoiler: using the cleaning lizards as spies.]]

** Also the related variants Dinolfos (''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'') and Aerolfos (''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess''). ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOracleGames'' also had the Tokay, who were mischievous but friendly lizard folk.

* ''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 displaced with draconians.
