* In the ''Franchise/StarWars'' movies V-VI, Darth Vader is The Dragon between the heroes and the Emperor. In IV he's The Dragon to Grand Moff Tarkin. In I-III, it is Darth Maul and later, General Grievous. Darth Tyrannus doesn't quite fit the mold.
** However, Tyrannus does have quite a few of his own Dragons: Jango Fett, Asajj Ventress, and Grievous (again), and in the Expanded Universe, Durge, along with various other "Dark Acolytes."

* ''Film/ThorRagnarok'': Hela recruits Skurge to be her Executioner, and explains that it's a title for the king's right-hand, tasked with executing the ruler's will. Then she admits a little sheepishly that they were mostly used for executing people. [[spoiler:Skurge becomes more and more disturbed with his new boss over the course of the film, and in the end turns on her without actually having killed anyone for her]].

* Taggart is a dragon to Hedley Lamarr in ''Film/BlazingSaddles''. Taggart initially appears to have his own dragon in Lyle, but Lyle soon reveals himself as NumberTwoForBrains. Later on, Mongo presents the most imposing physical challenge to the hero at least until [[spoiler:his HeelFaceTurn]] but is more TheBrute than a true dragon.

* The Cow from ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist'' is the Dragon. Well... sort of. He's not stronger than the Big Bad, but he is hilariously fast... and slightly GenreSavvy, when he rapidly kicks the Hero when they freeze in the air.
