* ''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.

*** Only the theropods (the group which evolved into birds) are confirmed to have feathers, and not even all of those. Other dinosaur groups show no fossil signs of having had feathers. Some fossils with impressions of soft tissue, however, point to scales also being unlikely. Instead they just had good old-fashioned skin.

* The Manhattan project hid the names of the elements it was working with under mundane code names: uranium-235 was "magnesium," neptunium was "silver" and plutonium was "copper." When it eventually became necessary to use real copper, the scientists had to refer to it as "honest-to-God-copper."
