** Doesn't help that many people, and even some sci-fi writers, confuse "sun" with "star". There is only one sun, i.e. the star of the sol system, which is only one of an undescribable number of stars across the universe.

** "Lamia" or "Lamiae" in the NeoClassical sense are usually described as: a) demonwomen who change into snakes, b) demonsnakes that change into women or c) strange half-woman half-snake demon things. The last is by far the most common in Japanese pop-culture, and sometimes they are not even demonic at all. They are also very, ''very'' [[ClingyJealousGirl clingy.]]

* ''{{Warhammer}}'' has many, many examples. As well as the Gorgons and Medusae (see Mythology, above), there are examples of Hydras, Chimeras, Minotaurs, Harpies, Phoenixes, Pegasi and pretty much all the standard fantasy versions of this trope. Of special note is the Kharybdiss, however - a species of sea monster in Warhammer derived from the whirlpool-causing individual monster Karybdis in Homer's Odyssey. Karybdis's traditional mythological partner Scylla does inspire a Warhammer monster, but it is a unique individual (the Chaos Spawn Scyla Anfingrimm), rather than a species (in fact the Kharybdiss bears some similarities with Homer's description of Scylla).

* Taken UpToEleven in the ''Franchise/ShinMegamiTensei'' series, where every demon (which includes gods, angels, fairies. and other supernatural beings) is one of many of the same demon. It's possible to encounter half a dozen Rangda and Barong, fight Vishnu with another Vishnu, and dissuade Oberon from joining your party because another Oberon is already in the party. Conversations with NPC demons suggest that they are the same demons from the myths, but no explanation is given.
