Illuyankas  From Turkish mythology
Illuyankas was a mighty dragon who was killed by the Hittite storm-god with the help of the goddess Inaras and her human lover Hupasiyas.

Nidhogg (the 'Dread Biter') and Midgard's Worm.  From Norse mythology
At the 'still point of the turning world' there stands the ash tree Yggdrasil which supports the whole universe. There are three great roots of the tree, one of which reaches over Niflheim where Hel reigns as Queen of the Underworld. Beneath Niflheim the dragon Nidhogg gnaws at the root seeking to destroy the universe - which is why he's known as 'The Dread Biter'.
Midgard's Worm (a.k.a Jorungard's Worm) is a threat on a more earthly level. The Worm lies in the seas with its tail in its mouth, encircling the land, creating the oceans. Disaster would befall the world should the Worm's tail be removed from its mouth. Midgard's Worm meets its end at Ragnarok when it and Thor kill each other.

Yam-nahar  From Canaanite mythology
A seven headed sea dragon destroyed by the young god Baal.

Apophis (a.k.a Apep)  From Egyptian mythology
The spirit of darkness and death, Apophis was a huge sea-serpent that attempts to destroy the sun-god Atum-Ra during his voyage across the sky. He is attacked and slain by the children of Atum-Ra, or by Set - depending on what your source is.
African Dragons
Amphisbaena: Originating in Africa, this was a two headed dragon (one at the front, and one on the end of its tail). The front head would hold the tail (or neck as the case may be) in its mouth, creating a circle that allowed it to roll.

Babylonian Dragons
Tiamat: Primeval Chaos, bearer of the skies and the earth. The clamor of the younger gods disturbed her, but she continued to indulge them. When the others suggested that they kill the younger gods, she grew furious, calmed down and rejected the plan. Her restless subservient gods goaded her into action after her son is slain. They prepared to wage war against the other gods. As Mother Hubur, the underworld river, who fashions all things, she bore giant snakes with venom for blood, and cloaked dragons with a godlike radiance yet with a terrible visage, for the war. She rallied a horned serpent, a mushussu-dragon, a lahmu-hero, a ugallu-demon, a  rabid dog, a scorpion-man, umu-demons, a fish-man, a bull-man, and eleven others underneath her champion, Qingu. She gave Qingu the Tablet of Destinies to facilitate his command and attack. To this day they battle still.
