* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', the Pope is one in reference to the infamous conspiracies of world leaders being Reptilians, although he's much less humanoid (more like an anthropomorphic lizard) than conspiracy theorists portray. The difference is the fact that the Pope is a lizard-like alien is obvious to everyone, to the point where it's used in a variation of IsTheAnswerYes. A couple other Reptilians appear as background characters in some episodes.

* ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' has "reptilian" as a category of species (along with stuff like "avian" and "anthropoid"). There's an achievement for doing the "alien infiltration" ploy on a pre-FTL reptilian species with a human empire, and the achievement's symbol is [[Series/{{V1983}} a reversed "V"]].

Depending on just how reptilian the Reptilians are portrayed to be (and depending on a program's budget), they can run the gamut from [[RubberForeheadAliens bald humans with]] [[PettingZooPeople weird eyes]] to full-on LizardFolk with a human-like gait. They usually have a hatred or disgust for all mammals. It is common for Reptilians to insult humans by referring to them as "apes". Also, a rule of thumb to keep in mind is that the more reptilian the aliens are, the less likely they are to be portrayed as good guys, in line with ReptilesAreAbhorrent; sympathetic Reptilians are more likely to have NonMammalMammaries, among other things.

* The Ithklur in {{Traveller}} are a ProudWarriorRace that serves as soldiers to the Hivers (who need them badly being rather courage-deprived as a rule). The Ithklur are not evil but are [[BoisterousBruiser hearty souls that love a good fight]].
* ''{{Exalted}}'' has some snake-[[HalfHumanHybrids beastmen]], including at least one who Exalted. It also has the dinosauroid Dragon Kings, who predate humanity and are almost extinct in the current day.
