* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' (and the related ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}})'', most varieties of full-sized dragon start out small enough to perch on people. Few actually would. There are, however, two members of the dragon genus (pseudodragons and faerie dragons) who can be talked into becoming companions or even {{familiar}}s. The partnership can get interesting, however, since pseudodragons tend to be a SpoiledBrat and faerie dragons are tricksters by nature.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has a trio of cosmetic dragon pets, all of which will perch on your shoulder should you remain still for a time (Unless you're a Lalafell, in which case they'll sit on your head instead).

* The ''Literature/DragonridersOfPern'' novels by Creator/AnneMcCaffrey have fire-lizards, which are native to the planet Pern and evolved the ability to exhale pyrophoric gas as a natural defense. While they have normal animal-level intelligence, they're weakly telepathic, and their instinct to imprint on whoever feeds them upon hatching makes them natural BondCreatures. Human colonists genetically engineered fire-lizards for greater size, intellect, and psychic ability, producing full-sized dragons.

* Pseudodragons and Faerie Dragons also appear in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' and the bestiary specifically notes that Pseudodragons (who have human level intelligence) are smart enough that some consider purchasing them as pets tantamount to slavery. Negotiating a partnership with one is totally fine, and indeed many higher-level wizards or sorcerers can gain Pseudodragons(and Faerie Dragons too) as familiars.
** A large number of Pseudodragons lived where the city of Korvosa would be built, and afterwards moved right back in. In time they developed a strong rivalry with the feral Imps that would often escape from the Infernal-leaning local WizardingSchool, a rivalry that occasionally erupts into epic(if tiny) battles in the skies above the city.
