* In ''Webcomic/DragonMango'':
** Dragonslayers are an actual species. They are humanoids with random unusual features similar to dragons and have natural magical abilities. They are the only species innately strong enough stand up to dragons. In truth, [[spoiler:they ''are'' dragons, who decided to secretly shapeshift into human-like forms, befriend humans, integrate into human civilization, and use humans as easy meal tickets by protecting them from their kin.]]
** There is also a human named Steen Dragonsbane who has made it his life's mission to wipe them out. Defeating a dragon is believed to be a near impossible feat for a human, but thanks to his SuperStrength, years of experience in their weaknesses, and the weapons he has made from their corpses, he has killed quite afew.

** ''Draconomicon'' suggested that many of the dragons who [[DragonKnight become paladins]] end up as this -- being [[ThePaladin paladins]] they are driven to confront evil, and being dragons they tend think more of dragons -- including how much of an evil evil ones can be. They also, of course, are intimately familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of dragons...

* ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasy'': Dwarf Slayers are dwarves who, to make up for some failure, become mohawked Slayers -- DeathSeekers who look for the toughest monsters around so they can die a glorious death. Except being dwarves, they're naturally quite good at killing the things, and so their failure becomes greater the more monsters they kill, and so you can find Troll Slayers and Giant Slayers and Dragon Slayers and Daemon Slayers.

** The human poet Felix Jaeger, companion to the world's most infamous Slayer, possesses a sword that was enchanted for dragon slaying. The effect is that Felix, who usually approaches CowardlySidekick compared to Gotrek, will turn into TheBerserker any time they have to face off against a dragon. Fortunately the sword gives Felix a few buffs to help him survive.

* In ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'', the Dragonslayer Armour is a heavy armor resembling Dragnslayer Ornstein, equipped with a melted iron greataxe tailored for slaying archdragons and a greatshield resistant to lightning. [[spoiler:It is in fact an AnimatedArmor controlled by the Pilgrim Butterflies like a puppet. The real Ornstein wasn't even in Lothric Castle, he's finding the Nameless King, Gwyn's first born son in Archdragon's Peak.]]

* The lair of [[ShapedLikeItself Dragon the dragon]] from ''WesternAnimation/Shrek'' is filled with countless knights who attempted to slay the dragon in order to rescue the princess. When Fiona confronts Shrek (who just grabs the princess and runs) about not killing the dragon, he makes fun of what an ineffective strategy dragon killing would be.

[[Administrivia/TheSameButMoreSpecific So this is just a variant]] of TheHunter right? Well, no. TheHunter normally suffers the AchillesHeel of CripplingOverspecialization, while The Dragonslayer still has a giant sword, which unlike a stake or silver daggers, [[OneHeroHoldTheWeaksauce is very effective in battle]]. The Dragonslayer is often TheHero with a few dead dragons tacked on.

** If Shrek had not rescued Fiona, it's likely the only person who would have been able to kill the dragon and then rescue her would have been Prince Charming. This would have been a subversion too, because Prince Charming - who looks and sounds exactly like the stereotypical dragon slayer- would likely have only been able to win the battle because his mother was a powerful sorceress, responsible for Fiona being locked up in the castle in the first place.

* The film ''WesternAnimation/FireAndIce'' had a man named Galador who slew a dragon. Too bad he died years ago, and his son had to do the job. His son, while not directly killing them, manages to take care of one by pitting it against another, and the second, an ice dragon by [[spoiler: bringing down salt mines on it]].
