** VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX has ''Ragtime Mouse''- which certainly doesn't look like any mouse we know, ''and there are mice people in the game''. Also, the music playing during the encounter certainly isn't ragtime.[[note]]It's actually a mistranslation of Ragtime Mouth - which made more sense given the giant mouth[[/note]]

* The Red Elk from ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' does not resemble an actual elk or wapiti.

* The Red Elk from ''Anime/PrincessMononoke'' does not resemble an actual elk or wapiti. It might actually pass for one, if it had antlers as opposed to bony ''horns'' which more quickly call a goat into mind.

* Due to CulturalTranslation, Kapp'n the cabbie/bus driver/boat rower from ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' is called a snapping turtle, and [[InconsistentDub occasionally]], a parrot. He's actually a {{Kappa}}, as is made obvious by his name. Tom Nook from the same game also suffers from a tanuki-to-raccoon species change.

* The ''tanuki'' suffers from a bit of this, often being misidentified as a raccoon or a badger. Its name in English is even raccoon-dog (they're canids).

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'': The creatures the Open Wound calls Siamese cats have "gel cores" and a habit of shedding their biovessels. Although, since it's implied that all concepts, including grey-zone ones, have gel cores and similar technobabble-y things, they may simply be normal cats that tend to die a lot.

** In Creator/RobertEHoward's ''The Valley of the Worm'' (apparently same continuity as Conan The Barbarian, and as such related to the Mythos), the titular creature is an EldritchAbomination which the narrator calls a Worm because it looks "somewhat more like a worm than it did an octopus, a serpent or a dinosaur".

* ''Literature/HellsGate'': Arcana has "{{Unicorns}}", which resemble the usual image of unicorns only in that they have a single horn and are roughly horse-sized and shaped. They are black, with disproportionately long legs, powerful hindquarters, and ears like a bobcat -- and possess a mouthful of long tusks and sharp, carnivorous teeth.
