* In Myth/NorseMythology, the hero Sigurd a.k.a. Siegfried was chiefly famous for killing a huge dragon somewhere near the Rhine.
* In one version of Myth/TristanAndIseult, Tristan killed a dragon, but but so wounded in the process he fell asleep, allowing someone else to walk by and take out the dragon's eye to claim the kill (and the princess and half the kingdom). Fortunately, Tristan awakes to set things right, unfortunately, Iseult sees Tristan and falls in love with him (he has to escort her to his uncle, who she's betrothed to).

** 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.
