* ''VideoGame/ArtOfFighting'' has a rivalry between its two main protagonists: Ryo Sakazaki (the tiger) and Robert Garcia (the dragon). In fact, the Japanese name of the series is ''Ryuuko no Ken'', or "Fist of the Dragon/Tiger". Their stances occasionally reflect their animal motifs, and they share a super move, the Ryuuko Ranbu ("Dragon and Tiger's Rebellious Dance"), that refers to the rivalry in its name. Ironically, Ryo is called the "Invincible Dragon" while Robert is called the "Raging Tiger" and some of their desperation moves summon a tiger for Robert and a dragon for Ryo. This is lampshaded in ''Videogame/TheKingOfFighters XIV'', in the Team Fatal Fury's ending where Joe talks about the tiger and dragon themes of the characters. The "team tiger" is Robert, Ramon and himself, while the "team dragon" is Ryo, Kensou and Mui Mui.

* In ''Franchise/AceAttorney'', Phoenix Wright finds himself at particular odds with Furio Tigre. This becomes far more relevant in the Japanese version, where Phoenix Wright and his Japanese name ("Ryuuichi Naruhodo") represent the dragon rather than a phoenix. If you look closely, you'll notice Tigre's shirt features a tiger chomping on a dragon's neck.

* Volume 8 on ''Manga/AnoKoNiKissToShirayuriWo'' focuses on two girls named [[MeaningfulName Torayama and Tatsumi]], who compete to be StudentCouncilPresident. '''Tora'''yama (the "tiger") is abrasive, passionate and slightly irritable, while '''Tatsu'''mi (the "dragon") has a cool and nonchalant demeanor. They're equally gifted and hate each other with a passion [[FoeRomanceSubtext (yet like each other much more than they want to admit.)]]

* Onmyō Taisenki has two characters, Asuka Yūma and Ōgami Masaomi, whose Shikigami are a tiger (Byakko no Rangetsu) and a dragon (Seiryū no Kibachiyo) respectively. Though they don't battle each other often, it's usually a very fierce fight when they do. Bonus points for Yūma being from the Earth-style clan and Masaomi being from the Heaven-style clan [[spoiler:though Masaomi, whose real name is Gashin, is actually from the Jin-style clan]].

** Though the biggest rival pair in the series, Tachibana Riku and Asuka Yūma, actually avert this, since they ''both'' use tigers (Byakko no Kogenta and Byakko no Rangetsu, respectively), though in terms of personality, Riku is the "dragon" and Yūma is the "tiger".

** ''Double Dragon Advance'' has the Dragons face the Twin Tigers in ChinaTown, but they aren't a worthy challenge. From advice of the tigers, the Dragons face Raymond, called the Tiger Emperor in the Japanese version. True to this trope, Raymond is their WorthyOpponent. Like Duke, Raymond is stoic compared to the excitable Dragons.

* While dragons are [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons a major part]] of FutureCardBuddyfight, Gao is more associated with straight-up dragons than most other fighters. One of his biggest rivals is Noboru, who is associated with tigers by the symbol on his shirt. [[BerserkButton (It's not a kitten.)]]
