In episode 8x04 a dragon is shot three times with the final shot through the neck. Lots of blood. He falls into the ocean, sinking to the bottom.

SPOILERS
The final dragon survives the series but is left alone without his mother or brothers.

One optional way of "winning" is by slaying a dragon called the Ender Dragon, however, she's evil and quite dangerous, so you don't need to feel guilty.

Technically a gargoyle, but appears to be a dragon. Second episode, extremely heart breaking as he is very similar to a dog in how he acts.

*mild spoilers* An antagonist dragon does die in a fire in this film, but they are a villian. A small dragon is seen being eaten whole by a large dragon. This movie mentions slaying dragons, but does not show dragons being intentionally slain (using swords, etc.)

There are many optional dragons that you can fight or avoid throughout the game, but one of the final bosses of the game is a dragon that you have to kill, and, depending on your game choices, you may have to fight another one, although you won't have to kill it. Iron Bull's romance questline also requires killing a dragon.

Three baby dragons are killed by three men with swords. They don’t show the actual slaying on screen, but you hear them scream. It’s upsetting. At 1:07:55, run from the room or fast forward to 1:08:37.
