[nitpick] Tarrasque is not a dragon, and main reason why it is so much more dangerous than others is that it uses its breath weapon way more often than other big breathers.

I know it's not a dragon; I just compared it to the dragons as they both are primarily about breath attacks.

Now that you've mentioned it the % of time the Tarrasque breathes is a much more significant difference than its durability, though.

Oh, I think its durability is also quite significant. With other breathers, when they're down to 20% or 30% hit points their breaths are much less dangerous. With the Tarrasque's huge hit point pool, even at 20% hit points its breath is still powerful.
