Further, it's also become fairly common for dragons to come in different flavors of ElementalPowers, especially in settings where ElementalRockPaperScissors are enforced. This may simply manifest in their BreathWeapon, or it may affect all properties of the dragon. Elemental rainbows of dragons are most common in video games and tabletop games where diversity of creatures and gameplay balance are considerations. One-off dragon variants are most likely to be ice elemental, poisonous, or maybe zombified.

Recently, western dragons' physical variability has created a number of named sub-species. The most popular variation has been the '''wyvern''', somewhat resembling a bat with the forelimbs being clawed wings and the rear limbs being two legs - this configuration generally being considered more "realistic" as something that could actually evolve. [[note]]Despite appearances, wings are actually a type of arm, and not a separate thing. Therefore a dragon with four legs and two "wings" biologically has ''six'' limbs - and six-limbed reptiles don't exist in the real world.[[/note]] In some settings, this is the only type and will simply be called "dragons." In other settings, wyverns are not considered "true" dragons at all, but a related, usually less powerful and intelligent species. The term "wyvern" is less likely to be used if the creature in question walks quadrupedally (using the wings as forelimbs, like a bat or a pterodactyl), such as Smaug from ''Film/TheHobbit'', Vermithrax Pejorative from ''Film/{{Dragonslayer}}'' and the dragons from ''Film/ReignOfFire''.

Rivaling the wyvern is the '''Hydra''' from Myth/GreekMythology, which is often depicted as a flightless dragon-like water or swamp beast with one or more heads; [[HydraProblem for each head you cut off, two rapidly grow to replace it.]] If they have a BreathWeapon, it's often a different one for each head. The original sprayed poison and had poison for blood.

Very old (Greek and Roman, and some medieval) dragons are presented as more serpentine than the more recent ones -- if winged, the wings are usually their only limbs; and some were totally limbless, just ''very enormous'' serpents. This type of dragon may be referred to as a '''wyrm''' (pronounced just like "worm").

* A '''drake''' (when it is not simply another term for dragons) is usually a creature closely related to dragons but smaller and less intelligent, equivalent to the relationship between humans and chimpanzees. [[UndergroundMonkey Multiple species of drake may exist for different environments]] (e.g. the drakes that live around volcanos may be the only ones able to breathe fire). Unlike wyverns, they have the same body type as other dragons in the setting, though if dragons have wings then drakes will sometimes lack them.
