In , the Erfworld color-coded Evil Overlord's second-in-command is a powerful Croakamancer and far smarter than her boss. However, he has a divine artifact, indulges her hobbies — and she knows how to "arrange it so that he thinks it was his idea."
The Order of the Stick Redcloak is The Dragon and right-hand man (right-hand goblin?) to Xykon. The prequel book Start of Darkness shows that Xykon was, at one point, the dragon to Redcloak before becoming more powerful and carrying out a rather nasty gambit which involved making Redcloak kill his brother and then ordering him to turn the corpse into a zombie. That didn't work out too well however, because in the end Xykon is still working towards Redcloak's goals, even if Xykon
thinks he is in charge. Therkla is Daimyo Kubota's Dragon.
Crystal serves this role for Bozzok in the Greysky City Thieves' Guild.
Tarquin pretends to be the dragon to the Empress of Blood (ironically a dragon herself), and has his friend Malack as his own dragon.
Ysengrin counts as Coyote's dragon in , though only so far as the comic's Gunnerkrigg Court White and Gray Morality allows.
In , the second in command is Evil Overlords United literally a dragon. He's also not overly bright and seems to have a thing for human females.
has had two major Dragons so far — one for each major plot arc. Saral Caine was Goblins ("was" being the operative word) Dragon for Dellyn Goblinslayer in the Brassmoon Arc. Grem (until his and Riss were Dragons to Duv in Well of Darkness Arc. Not that Duv really needs a Dragon. She's more than Heel-Face Turn) Badass enough on her own...
has had several Dragons in its long run. Most of them (Killum, Aylee, Kusari) have worked for the Hereti Corporation's Sluggy Freelance Omniscient Council of Vagueness. Other notables include Lord Grater (Dragon to Zorgon Gala in the Punyverse arc) and Nash Straw (Dragon to Dastard Dickly in the "Phoenix Rising" arc) and Lord Horribus (Dragon to the Demon King in the Dimension of Pain stories).
features Musaran, Ciem: The Human Centipede The Dragon of Duke Arfaas' Hebbleskin Gang. Also, Chief of Police Merle Hourvitz. However, Ai Is A Crapshoot, so a damaged Musaran very nearly becomes The Starscream. By Ciem 3, An AI- brainwashed Botan the Plant-Man becomes a dragon for Candi's new archnemesis Kimiyato/Milp.
Karnak from seems to have acquired a Dragon himself, in the form of Dominic Deegan Siegfried. He doesn't seem to be particularly loyal to Karnak, though, as Karnak appears to have some kind of hold over him, and even then has to smack him around a bit to make him do his bidding.
Also, Helixa seemed to be The Dragon to the leaders of The Chosen, first serving Raf MaLiksh, then to Caylin Bren (though it might've been the other way around for the latter, considering Helixa was pretty much second-in-command to MaLiksh himself before his death). She could also be viewed as The Dragon to Celesto Morgan after he joined the organization as well.
The Feline Emperor from has his advisor, Toh, who himself has his own dragon in Lamika.
Blade of Toshubi Much like each season having its own Big Bad, half of the seasons have its own Dragon in Ansem Retort:
Season 1: Ansem to the FOX president. He's later a Dragon Ascendant.
Season 3: Vexen to Ansem.
Season 4: a turncoat Larxene to Xemnas
Season 6: a turncoat Red XIII to Xemnas, Sho to Belle.
In , Homestuck Doc Scratch plays this to Lord English.
The Heretic in Harkovast serves as a Dragon for The Speaker. Though The Speaker himself could be considered the Dragon for The King in the West.
In RPG World, Jeff is this to Big Bad, Galgarion.
In one gets the feeling that Shmeerm use to play this role to the former Voodoo Walrus Big Bad Cyradwee. Now he seems to be playing Dragon some someone else though.
In Mr. Magnum plays the role of Dragon to Von Gernsbach, recruiting his minions and overseeing operations.
Minion Comics In ,
Rusty and Co. Cleave-Hand, for Grinner.
V'innie, for Don Polpo.
In , Sebastian acts as Xaneth's apprentice and Dragon. He's pretty new at it, though.
True Villains In , General Shade Tail appears to be this for Lord Tedd.
El Goonish Shive : Narkethoness to Borzax and Agathoth to Emperor Vox, almost literally considering they're serpents.
