    A Ranking Of Fantasy Characters Who Have Dragons — From Donkey To Daenerys


    What's a good fantasy story without a dragon? These mystical, medieval creatures are classically seen as villains, though plenty of good-hearted ones have flown the skies of film and television, too. Where there is a dragon, there is always a dragon-tamer who either slays its opponent or bonds with it for life.
