* 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.

* Music/{{Radiohead}}'s "Weeping Minotaur" mascot really looks nothing like the traditional portrayal of the Minotaur as a man with a bull's head, but more like a cartoon demon, despite the use of the Minotaur being based on the mythology of the Labyrinth.

* In Cornish folklore, a spriggan is a kind of goblin that can grow to giant size. In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', it's basically a mix of a dryad and the Faun from ''PansLabyrinth''.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/HPLovecraft uses the terms "Mi-go" (seemingly based on "Migou," the Tibetan equivalent of "Yeti") and "Abominable Snowmen" to refer to a horrific species of aliens, halfway between giant crustaceans and living fungus. The only connection between Lovecraft's Mi-go and the mythological Yeti they share at least two names with is that they live in the Himalayas.

* See also any creature from folklore in the Americas which goes by a variant of the French word "loup-garou". E.g., the Haitian one? It's either a vampire or a witch, and it turns into a will-o-wisp, not a wolf. The Cajun one can turn into a wolf, but it's usually just an invisible person—and they apply "garou"[[note]]From Frankish "garulf" and ''literally'' the same word as "werewolf".[[/note]] to any other animal shape-shifter (their folklore has people that can become cats and horses, for just two examples).

* Sirens are often portrayed as being mermaid-like in appearance, even though they were originally closer to harpies in the myths. Several languages conflate the two names altogether.
