* The eponymous dragon in ''WesternAnimation/PotatoesAndDragons'' can't fly, and its body and head are just kind of a green lump with stegosaur-like spikes. It also has an irrational hatred of crowns for some bizarre reason.

* The ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' episode "So Life Like" had Lawrence Limburger try to kill the Biker Mice by bringing cartoon and comic strip villains to life. The first villain he brought to life was Snortblast, a villain from the in-universe comic strip ''Biker Knight'' who happened to be a dragon who breathed fire through his nostrils.

* From ''WesternAnimation/DragonFlyz'': Airlandis's dragons are wyverns. The villains' dragons WingedTetrapod have the standard pair of wings and four legs instead of two.
* ''WesternAnimation/DragonBooster'' has quadrupedal dragons that are used as modes of transportation. The main focus (Beau)can change colors to avoid attention.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePony'': Spike actually learns this as an Aesop in "Spike's Search". Additionally, the dragon (though he is curiously never referred to as such) in "Through The Door" is literally just a PunchClockVillain (they really like that trope) and is very {{Emo}} about having to be the bad guy all the time.
** Spike's new incarnation in ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is an ExtremeOmnivore that especially likes to eat gems, and has magic fire breath that he uses to send messages like a living fax machine.
** Spike aside, ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has a standard Western dragon in the episode "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E7DragonShy Dragonshy]]", and another one in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E24OwlsWellThatEndsWell Owl's Well that Ends Well]]" who has the added features of retractable claws and tail spikes. The sea serpent in part 2 of the pilot has an overall design very similar to Eastern dragons. Both dragons hoard gemstones and riches in their caves, which actually makes sense here given that, as Spike proves, this version of dragons' preferred diet is gemivorous.

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' has alien dragons!

* ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' has alien dragons!dragons! They resemble Western dragons in appearance but take Eastern influences in being incredibly intelligent, advanced enough that they've built their own civilization, as well as achieved space travel. The one Ben and company first encounter was a mapmaker that landed on Earth 1000 years ago before being imprisoned...[[GeniusBruiser and was as big and powerful as one would expect of dragons of legends in addition to that intelligence]]. He wasn't very happy after he broke out and nearly went on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge before being convinced to just leave the planet and head home to his family.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/MagiNation'': The [[OlympusMons hyrens]] and [[PhysicalGod guardian hyrens]]. Best examples, the guardian hyren of The Weave is a green anthropomorphic chicken, the guardian hyren of Naroom is a winged plant-cat, the guardian hyren of the Underneath is a bat-wyvern, and the guardian hyren of The Deeps of Orothe is a giant squid-like creature. The fog and mist hyrens of Bograth are made of water vapor. Snout and Peepers are closer to a traditional Western dragon, but two headed with an uneven number of eyes and nostrils per head. Also they are all [[{{Tulpa}} dream creatures]] aka sentient masses of energy created from the dreams of magi.

*** "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E5GauntletOfFire Gauntlet of Fire]]" expands on dragon society, revealing they have a monarchy of sorts led by a Dragon Lord, who rules with absolute authority (disobeying the Dragon Lord doesn't even seem to occur to dragons) but with term limits--at a certain point, the Lord has to step down and allow a new dragon to take their place in a contest that seems to change with each occasion, going by Torch's comment that he designed the episode's challenge himself. The current Lord, Torch, is also ''huge'', much bigger than the dragons in "Dragonshy" and "Owl's Well" or Spike's own {{Kaiju}} form. We also get the confirmed existence of female dragons.
