** In the ''Ninjago'' theme, the ninjas use a number of dragons as transport and to assist in combat. They have wildly varying appearances, wyverns, quadrupedal dragons and drakes, and Chinese Lung dragons. Unlike ''Castle'', the dragons are fully brick-built (like a vehicle), and are very posable thanks to ball-and-socket joints. In ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGONinjagoMovie'', Llyod Garmadon uses a bright green dragon mech based on the Chinese lung dragons

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 [[{{Dracolich}} zombified]].

** The komagas, large reptilian creatures that rampage across Gildedale for a month every year, destroying anything in their way (they only do this in one direction and return the next year from the same way as before; no one knows where they go the rest of the time), were, ccording to Gildedale tradition, dragons who long ago committed some unknown sin and were punished by their gods with the loss of their wings and fire and being cursed to eternally roam the earth, and who over the aeons have degraded into mindless beasts.

* The fen dragons in early ''ComicStrip/PrinceValiant'' strips were basically gigantic crocodiles who dwelt in the swamps. A much more recent story arc pitted Val against a truly titanic lizard from a LostWorld, which attacked Camelot [[MonsterIsAMommy seeking its stolen egg.]]
* Todd the Candy Dragon from ''ComicStrip/PhoebeAndHerUnicorn'' is a tiny dragon who says nothing but "Rar" and, true to his name, produces candy and ice cream from his mouth.

* A '''drake''' (when it is not simply another term for dragons, occasionally for male dragons specifically) is usually a creature closely related to dragons but smaller and less intelligent, equivalent to the relationship between humans and chimpanzees, or is sometimes an adolescent dragon who isn't finished growing yet.

* 'FanFic/ItsADangerousBusinessGoingOutYourDoor'':
** Dragons come from the nation of Carcosa and have their own language, Draketongue, a tonal tongue (meaning that tone and pitch are as important as, if not more important than, the actual sound of words in conveying meaning) noted to be highly melodic and sung more than spoken.
** The komagas, large reptilian creatures that rampage across Gildedale for a month every year, destroying anything in their way (they only do this in one direction and return the next year from the same way as before; no one knows where they go the rest of the time), were, ccording to Gildedale tradition, dragons who long ago committed some unknown sin and were punished by their gods with the loss of their wings and fire and being cursed to eternally roam the earth, and who over the aeons have degraded into mindless beasts.
** Longs are also mentioned, and apparently live in the nation of Salamar. They are not true dragons, however, and apparently dislike being mistaken for such.



* The dragons of ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'' are mostly of the Western type. They have nigh-invulnerable scaly hides, fire breath, six limbs (counting the wings), eat gemstones, and collect a DragonHoard because they grow larger the more stuff they possess.
** However, this is heavily {{Deconstructed}}. Because dragons are so individually powerful, and can find their food so easily, they never developed a civilization beyond the crudest level of "might makes right". Very few dragons can even read and write, and the handful of more civilized dragons have to learn other languages just because Draconic lacks the vocabulary to express many of the things they want to say. In addition, since the greatest threat to a mature dragon is another dragon, they never work together, and though they may spawn whelps, they would never take them into their own lairs, for they might steal something. As a result, there are only a few thousand dragons on the planet. As one abnormally wise dragon puts it:

to:

* ''FanFic/ThePalaververse'': They used to rule most of the world in the past, but their power began to slip as civilization grew, and was lost in a series of disastrous wars against the Diamond Dogs, the Capric Empire and Equestria, forcing most of them out of Ungula and to the archipelago of the Burning Mountains. They also have their own unique but poorly understood form of magic, hoard treasure as both a way to store food and as a mating display of sorts, and though mostly loners they have a loose society, ruled by the Fire Queen through Dragon Lords acting as intermediaries and viceroys.
** An interesting note is that, although most dragons dismiss religion as something for more mortal beings to bother with, particularly old and powerful dragons almost invariably develop beliefs centering on the size of one’s hoard determining the value and “brightness” of one’s soul, and of a "Last Dark" to be met with as bright a soul as possible, refusing to elaborate on this even to their younger kin.
** The caverns of the underworld are known to be home to blind, flightless dragons that breathe mind-clouding fumes and poison instead of fire.
* ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'':
The dragons of ''Fanfic/RainbowDoubleDashsLunaverse'' are mostly the same as in the base canon (i.e., they're of the Western type. They type, have nigh-invulnerable scaly hides, fire breath, breath and six limbs (counting the wings), eat gemstones, and collect a DragonHoard because they grow larger the more stuff they possess.
