* The lore of ''LetsPlay/TwitchPlaysPokemon'' has granted this title to AATTVVV (a.k.a. [[FanNickname All-Terrain Venomoth]]) after it [[AwesomeMoments unexpectedly managed to take out Lance's Dragonite while 30 levels weaker than it]].

* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'': Guts' iconic giant sword, the Dragonslayer, is a seven-foot-tall slab of sharpened iron, created by the UltimateBlacksmith who was asked to make a sword that could kill a dragon (back when fantasy creatures ''weren't'' a common sight across Midland), and pretty much can only be wielded by someone who's been training with seven-foot-long swords since birth. While it's yet to live up to its name in a literal sense (the one fight against a dragon was a draw), it's certainly killed a vast number of slightly lesser foes, and if there ever was a man capable of killing a dragon, it's Guts.

* Cadderly from ''Literature/TheClericQuintet'' qualifies, even though he's a spellcaster. He managed to kill one with a explosive bandolier, and he [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome managed to brainwash another into doing his bidding]].

* Fred Saberhagen's ''The First BookOfSwords''. Nestor was already in the dragon-hunting trade when the god Hermes gave him Dragonslicer. With that Sword he found he could kill dragons easily.

** Hawke in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' faces the entire gambit, ranging from Drakelings to a High Dragon. In the ''Mark of the Assassin DLC'', they're invited to take part in Duke Prosper's annual Wyvern hunt, winning a prize for being the first to slay an Alpha Wyvern. [[spoiler: Near the end, Hawke gets into a fight with Duke Prosper who in addition to using a crossbow, [[HorseOfADifferentColor rides]] into battle with his trained Wyvern, [[FluffyTheTerrible Leopold]]]].

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'': Depending on the edition, the GodEmperor of Mankind ''was'' Myth/SaintGeorge, though instead of killing the dragon he imprisoned it on Mars. That dragon might very well be the Void Dragon, a C'tan (the C'tan are among the most powerful entities in existence, its brother the nightbringer having imposed its image into nearly all races as death incarnate, aka the GrimReaper). However, this may have bitten him in the ass, as the Void Dragon has power over machines, and it is more or less implied the Adeptus Mechanicus' worship of the Omnissiah is strengthening the Void Dragon.

** The Primarch Ferrus Manus once wrestled a strange silver dragon and plunged it into magma. The dragon's living metal skin fused itself onto his arms, granting him the ability to forge things without tools. The similarities between the Emperor's and Ferrus' encounters implies that the dragon Ferrus defeated was a shard of the Void Dragon, and that the metal fused to his arms is Necron Necrodermis.
