The meaning of "Dragon" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does dragon lady mean?
A: Well, if it’s about a stereotype, then I guess its roots are from the dragons in Chinese culture, so it’s convenient to use it in a stereotype. It’s not something I’ve come across.

Strangely, we also have a dragon in English culture/history, because St George is the patron saint of England, but somehow they are different types of dragon. 🤷🏻‍♀️ (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_George_and_the_Dragon)

I’ve just found this on Wiki. I’m sure you could translate it online if you don’t understand the English. But you’re right, it is used as a stereotype.

Synonyms of "Dragon" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between I saw the dragon breathe fire on those clouds the other day. and I saw the dragon breathe fire on that cloudy day. and I saw the dragon breathe fire in the clondy day. ?
A: In the first case, you are saying that the dragon breathed fire on clouds, and the clouds refers to a physical matter. In the second one, you are describing the day that you saw the dragon breathe fire, but it does not specify what the dragon breathed fire on. You are simply describing that on that day that you saw a dragon breathe fire, there were a lot of clouds in the sky. The two scenarios however are not linked directly. Cloud is the object/matter, and cloudy is the adjective to describe a lot of clouds

Q: A: You’re one of the stronger dragons, aren’t you ?
B: If you consider “starting Armageddon” strong.

In the conversation, saying “consider “starting Armageddon” strong.”
I don’t know this sentence structure.
Can you separate this English sentence so that the grammar is clear ?😅
I would like your opinion!

A: "Consider" can have quite a few different meanings depending on the context, but in this sentence it means: "if you think 'X' to be true... (then 'Y' is obviously true, duh!)". The part in the bracket is implied, because speaker B is actually being sarcastic here, hence the "duh" part. Basically:
"Starting armageddon"= "X"
"Speaker B is one of the stronger dragons" = "Y"

So B is saying that if A thinks (considers) "starting armageddon"(X) to be something only stronger dragons can do, then yes, "B is one of the stronger dragons."(Y)

I hope this explaination wasn't too confusing. (I've never been very good at explaining things...) (^-^'')\
I'll try to translate this to Japanese, but my Japanese is still really bad, so I apologize in advance if it doesn't make sense! Hope this helped!:)

"Consider"は色々な意味があるんですが、この文には、[そう思うなら、]という意味です。つまり、Aは「あなたは一般の竜より強いじゃん?」と聞いた、それで Bは「"armageddonを始めた"竜は一般の竜より強いと思うなら…」(そう、私が強い)と答えました。Bは Sarcasticの気がしています。

私の日本語がまだ下手で、すみません!:)
Q: "Enter the dragon." what does that mean?
I know that 'enter' is used as "enter the room", "enter the building", etc. But enter the dragon???

Q: A dragon was believed to protect the buildings from fire. Does this sound natural?
A: "They believed a dragon protected the buildings from fire." or "It was believed that a dragon protected the buildings from fire."
