Dragon

usually dragons

Dragon (Greek: drakon, “serpent”), legendary monster, usually represented as a firebreathing, winged serpent or lizard with crested head and large claws. Apart from the wingless Chinese and Japanese dragons, which are considered beneficent, dragons have usually been regarded as symbols of evil, and dragon-slayers, for example Saint George, as saints and heroes.
