* The dragons in ''Webcomic/FarToTheNorth'' fit the Western Dragon mold relatively well, breathing fire, flying on bat wings, and seeking to 'collect' one of the protagonist's nieces to keep as a pet. The fact that they've apparently created the [[SuperSoldiers entire goblin race]] from scratch suggests they have abilities we've yet to see though.

* In the world of ''Webcomic/{{Whither}}'', dragons are extinct, except bookworms - tiny, slightly glowy, voice-mimicking pests that nest in paper.

* Dragons of the Webcomic/{{Archipelago}} [[VoluntaryShapeshifter switch at will]] between human form and a huge winged lizard form. The lizard form does most of the traditional dragon things, like flying.

* The main characters of ''{{Webcomic/Meadowhawk}}'' are modern-day dragons, ones who'd rather play [[MineCraft CubeCraft]] than burn villages, and eat tofu stir-fry more often than knights.

* ''GeorgeTheDragon'' has a dragon named... well, what do you know...George. As far as we've seen he is the ONLY dragon on earth, and he certainly DOES get around a bit. He is the regular 4 legs and 2 wings variety but his wings tend to come and go and will. Also of note, George's diet seems to consist entirely of [[http://www.drunkduck.com/George_the_Dragon/index.php?p=602544 junk food]].

* Webcomic/FourGodRanger: The only dragon seen so far is one of [[TheFourGods the Four Celestial Gods]], Seiryu. He, along with the other four gods, has the form of a bipedial humanoid creature that is a hybrid human/celestial god. He also has healing powers and seems to be the defacto leader of the group. * ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'' posits that dragons evolved from [[http://www.scientificblogging.com/news_releases/kuehneosaurs_just_as_cool_as_archaeopteryx_but_50_million_years_older kuehneosaurs.]] They had an advanced civilization but destroyed it in a war, taking the dinosaurs with them. The survivors became pastoral. When humans evolved and came into conflict with them, the dragons avoided a war with the primitives by leaving Earth for Butane, a planet in the Kuiper Belt. They are part of Princess Voluptua's space empire.

* ''PlanesOfEldlor'' features five subspecies: Fire, storm, desert, swamp, and riftwalker dragons. Each has distinctive features and abilities, though all of them share the classic "western dragon" appearance of having four legs and large, batlike wings. The dragons of Eldlor are benevolent and intelligent, but somewhat reclusive - though occasional mischevious pranksters like Sukozu enjoy visiting human villages just to "see the looks on their faces." * ''TheLawOfPurple'': 'Dragons' are actually higher-dimensional creatures that spend most of their time in another plane of existence.

* ''DominicDeegan'' has dragons as well, but only one ever shows up. They're more along the lines of western dragons in appearance, as well as colossal in size and capable of powerful magic. Apparently their language and beautiful and lyrical to the ear, but the one we see speaks a very different language so Dominic never gets to hear it himself. Plus, they're very rare, so if ever one has the opportunity to meet one is considered incredibly lucky.

* DeviantART [[http://iririv.deviantart.com/art/Centocephalic-Dragon-99803821 This rendition]] of a multi-headed dragon by artist IRIRIV. Instead of the typical dragon, the Centocephalic Dragon has an almost sauropod-like body with half its 100 long serpentine heads moving and twirling around the rest of the body to aid in balance and efficiency. Along with its normal set of limbs, it also uses it's wings to aid in walking (leaving the artist to wonder why normal dragons do not use this mode of locomotion considering their huge size). Instead of fire, it spits molten metal that not only burns but hits hard.

* ''KayTheCookieJarDragon'' is actually a miniature CuteMonsterGirl. One of the characters hangs a lampshade on this, talking about all the things that dragons ''should'' be; Kay simply replies, "But I ''am'' a dragon", and this is taken as a perfectly good excuse. * ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', in its eternal quest to mock ''DungeonsAndDragons'' tropes to death, of course covered this, even [[TropeNamer coining the term]] ColorCodedForYourConvenience.

* ''[[http://www.drunkduck.com/dragon_city/ Dragon City]]'' has bipedal dragons who are roughly human-sized and live underground, typically underneath human cities. At least until the [[Webcomic/{{Jix}} Ambis]] disintegrated the human population of Chicago and the dragons moved in. Also they coexisted with the dinosaurs and started hiding underground before the asteroid hit. Their fire-breathing has atrophied over millions of years, they have the glands that produce it but if they try breathing flame they burn their throats so many have their flame-sacs removed as hatchlings.

Reverting some character changes
* PlayedWith in Webcomic/KeepingThePeace. Two of the universes have dragons. Dragons like Stalix are around the size of an elephant at most, can talk, and seem to have average human wisdom. Dragons from Shauns world are the size of a building, dont talk and have such low intelligence that they can be at the beck and call of a summoner. The contrast catches a few people by surprise.

"Unfixing" Gunnerkrigg Court

They're intelligent, benign, and keep to themselves. It was implied that there ''were'' real dragons, until they were (mostly?) exterminated for showing off a bit too much:
