The character Terezi's lusus (An animal acting as a guardian for a specific alien species) is a dragon, and dies soon after hatching. However, it is seen having returned as a sprite (basically a ghost that assists and provides hints to their assigned character)

In Skyrim, dragons are a common enemy, and you are forced to kill many of them such as Alduin, the main antagonist.

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.

NO DRAGONS die in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001). The only appearance/mention of dragons in this movie is a baby dragon, who is well taken care of.

*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.)

Among the Dragons killed is the big bad, the Archdemon, who is an elder god, corrupted by the Darkspawn taint. Depending on player choices, the soul of this dragon may be preserved, rather than destroyed.

Two dragons are fighting, one gets impaled by the other's tusks. There's no blood and it cuts away before the impact.

The main villain is a colossal, three-headed dragon who dies brutally during the final battle. That said, one of his heads is recovered, and we know that he has impressive regenerative powers, so he may have survived.

You can choose not to kill dragons, but there are many instances of baby dragons and two fully grown dragons that must be killed for you to do major side quests.

At one point their enemy forces include a "drakon", which is apparently different from a dragon.

Like with horses, you may choose to make certain characters ride dragons, or run into dragon-riding enemies. Also like with horses, dragons die with their rider, but in a suitable-for-work fashion.

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.

It isn't a whole dragon, but one head of a five-headed dragon. It was still a major death

It's stated that almost all of the world's dragons have been wiped out my slayers. (I've watched this movie at least 15 times and I still choke up when I see it.)

Smaug the dragon is shot in the chest with a lance-like arrow. He takes to the air one last time before the light fades from his eyes and he falls.

Near the beginning, there's a shot of a wizard fighting a dragon that gets crushed by falling stones and apparently dies. Later, in a climactic scene, the characters fight and kill a "dragon" that was created via a curse - it's shaped like a dragon, but made out of smoke and rubble rather than flesh and blood. The characters also have a small pet dragon which is not a major part of the film and does not die.
