* An odd variation on ''Series/{{Angel}}'' -- in Pylea, the dominant demon races refer to humans as "cows."

** The [[http://godofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Kraken kraken]] looks suspiciously like the [[http://jeradsmarantz.blogspot.com/2010/04/kraken-for-clash-of-titans.html Kraken]] from the ''{{Clash of the Titans|2010}}'' remake. Notably, the kraken - along with several other monsters, including the Irish [[http://godofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Banshee Banshee]] and the Arabic [[http://godofwar.wikia.com/wiki/Rocs Roc]]) - isn't even from Greek mythology, so its presence in the game is clearly entirely in homage to ''Clash of the Titans''.

* The Kraken from ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' isn't the giant squid or crab monster of Scandinavian myth, but some kind of gigantic pseudo-Greek mermonster. In the original mythology, the sea monster that was going to destroy the city of Argos (unless they sacrificed Princess Andromeda) was called Cetus. (Which, incidentally, is where we get the scientific term ''cetaceans'', meaning whales.)

* In the first three ''DragonQuest'' games, Wyverns have a serpentine body, a vulture's head, and feathered wings, while in the fourth game they look like [[DinosaursAreDragons a cross between a T-Rex and a pterosaur]]. To twist the knife further, in ''DQ V'', ''VIII'', and ''IX'', the original Wyvern design was renamed the Chimaera.

* The witches from ''Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica'' don't resemble most versions. They aren't humanoid magic users, but EldritchAbominations that feed on human emotion and live in Labrynths. Their familiars also aren't animals, but rather similar monsters that are subservient to them.

* At least one article in ''Dragon'' magazine has suggested that game masters use this trope in-game to screw with their players' expectations, perhaps justifying it as disinformation spread by smart monsters.
