The heraldic dragon is a 4-legged beast with a horny head, barbed tongue, scaly back, armoured rolls on the chest and belly, 2 bat-arrow-like end. It is usually shown rampant, statant or passant, and rarely displayed like an eagle.

There are also dragons in Chinese, Korean and Oriental heraldry. These dragons have no wings, and 5, 4 and 3 toes respectively, but SCA heraldry requires they are depicted with 3 toes or less.

Sea dragons have no wings.
