The fire-breathing, flying dragon myth seems down to

by monks who prepared illuminated bestiaries

A missionary described an exotic snake from 'Asia' as (I'm
paraphrasing) a serpent that stood up and spread 'wings'
from its neck, and spat out a substance that burned
severely.
That actually makes sense and interesting.

Tell me more, george.

The Filipino mythical Kapre, a tobacco-smoking, tree
dwelling giant, is actually based on black slaves who were
transshipped via Manila, but then escaped.

Apparently, they took a liking to Philippine tobacco, and
made a habit of hanging out in trees (on lookout against
their vengeful owners).

Local Filipinos apparently got along with them, and some
old Pampango poems hint that locals even protected them
from slave-owner retribution --hence the benign/gentle
characterization in Pinoy folklore.

Their name is an etymological giveaway, too:
Kapre descends directly from cafre which is the Spanish
rendition of old Arabic kafir (sub-human; unbeliever).
