* ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'': "The Kind People" vaguely resemble wingless European dragons, but they are insectoid, pathologically unselfish, and were originally created as sapient beasts of burden (they were needed because non-sapient beasts of burden cannot travel the King's Road that connects all worlds). Mammon was the only dragon who knew greed, and it caused him to be shunned. He murdered his entire family and anyone else who stood in his way until he outright owned one-seventh of the multiverse. He is now known as the "Grand Dragon," and is a massive beast the size of a house.

Added DiffLines:

** Several specific variants of European dragons existed, including wyverns, lindwurms and tatzlwurms. Like all other variants, they're extinct.


*** [[http://hyenafu.tumblr.com/tagged/volcano Fire Dragons]] which resemble and act like classic european ones except they lack wings and are bipedal.
*** [[http://hyenafu.tumblr.com/search/Water+dragon Water Dragons]] which are suprisingly [[GentleGiant playful and good-natured]].
*** [[http://hyenafu.tumblr.com/search/Earth+dragon Earth Dragons]] which are rhino-like and are targets of poaching due to their [[GemTissue crystal horns]].
*** And finally [[http://hyenafu.tumblr.com/search/Wind+dragon Wind Dragons]] which looked like a FeatheredSerpent with four wings and talons but are now extinct. Instead the much smaller wyverns now take their place.
** And although he hasn't appeared in-comic yet, their is also Rynn the flame dragon who is one of the [[ElementalEmbodiment Twelve Guardians]] (a group of demigods who protect Medius) who can [[{{Shape shifting}} shapeshift]] into a mortal form and is sapient.

* ''Webcomic/TheWaterPhoenixKing'': Dragons are literally incarnations of wealth; they are born when any mass of treasure is left untended for a long time, hence the reason why they always appear in dungeon treasure rooms - they ARE the treasure.

* ''Webcomic/SkinDeep'': Dragons are large, powerful mythical creatures who waged a disastrous war with the [[RiddlingSphinx sphinxes]] centuries in the past that wiped both species off the face of the Earth -- or so most people think, as it seems both are survived by at least one individual.
** The war was instigated by the sphinxes' initial refusal to give the dragons the enchanted shapeshifting medallions only they knew how to create, causing the dragons -- who were being steadily killed off by human hunting and saw the medallions as their only hope of survival -- to engage in a series of brutal attacks on sphinx workshops and homes to try to take the medallions by force. These hostilities, driven by the fact that both dragons and sphinxes saw each other as evil and cruel, soon escalated into a war that killed off the vast majority of both species.
** Only two dragons have been seen in the comic, but suggest a great deal of physical variability for their kind. One, the only known survivor, is a red-and-yellow creature with the typical six-limbed arrangement, Asian-style barbels on his snout and an erect, panther-like gait. The other, seen in a flashback, has a whitish coloration, only four limbs -- two forelegs and two wings -- a sprawling, lizardlike stance and an elongated, serpentine body reminiscent of medieval depictions of dragons.

* ''Webcomic/{{Twokinds}}'': Dragons are intelligent psychic immortal beings who communicate with mortals using {{Telepathy}} and use powerful magic, they can also shapeshift into many forms but they (or at least Lady Nora) usually just change into animals due to not being used to walking bipedally.

* Website/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.

* The main characters of ''{{Webcomic/Meadowhawk}}'' are modern-day dragons, ones who'd rather play [[VideoGame/{{Minecraft}} CubeCraft]] than burn villages, and eat tofu stir-fry more often than knights.* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', in its eternal quest to mock ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' tropes to death, of course covered this, even [[TropeNamer coining the term]] ColorCodedForYourConvenience.

* In ''Webcomic/AmericanBarbarian'', [[http://www.ambarb.com/?p=306 a dragon asleep in the snow]]
* Dragons in ''Webcomic/CharbyTheVampirate'' live near humans and enjoy human entertainment and amenities since they can pass as human if they so desire. While they seem to have plenty of half-elf offspring most of the denizens of Kellwood distrust them, with at least one society having hunting down and killing a dragon as a required rite for boys to enter adulthood.
* ''Webcomic/DarkWings'' has the gargantuan Great Dragons, the never-seen-on-panel common dragons, and the small but crafty wyverns. All have approximately human intelligence.
* The former title character of ''Webcomic/DarylAndSusie'' is a dragon. He, and other dragons like him, is bipedal, is about the same size as a human and resembles a crocodile with wings. One trait that Daryl doesn't share with his fellow dragons though, is that he has monsters come out of his head.
* ''Webcomic/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.



* In ''Webcomic/{{Endstone}}'', [[http://endstone.net/2010/04/12/issue-3-webpage-24/ it's the form assumed by a stoner rocking the Dragonstone.]]
* Dragons in ''Webcomic/TheFAN'' are deities. They never appear, but a common depiction of Galion, the Dragon of Light is humanoid.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
