* One episode of ''Series/TheGreatestAmericanHero'' has Ralph wanting to use the supersuit to hunt for a legendary sea serpent, but soon getting diverted into dealing with some human villains. Similar to the X-Files example below, the serpent puts in an appearance ([[SpecialEffectsFailure of sorts]]) at the very end of the episode, seen only by the viewer.

* ''Series/TheXFiles'' had enough cryptid episodes to stuff the Berlin Zoo full with them. And often subverted (and double subverted) them. A rampaging lake monster turns out to be a killer alligator [[spoiler: while at the end the lake monster surfaces, unseen by anyone]] and a group of greys walking down a hill at an environmental spill turn out to be misidentification of men in hazmat suits.

* ''High Rhulain'', one of the Literature/{{Redwall}} books, contains the Slothunog, an obvious Loch Ness Monster expy. It's notable for being the only instance in the entire series where Brian Jacques deviated from his rule of only using real animals.

* While most of the creatures in ''Series/{{Primeval}}'' weren't connected to any real-life mythology, occasionally one would be mistaken for a legendary creature or cryptid. The most notable examples were the ''Dracorex'' (a dinosaur mistaken for a dragon), the "[[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Mer-creatures]]", the gremlin-like "camouflage creatures", and the ''Pristichampsus'' (implied to be the inspiration for the Egyptian monster Ammut).

* One season's shorts in Yokai Watch had Komasan and Komajiro recruited in a series to explore legends and mysteries, some of which were finding cryptids. The man that recruited them (poorly) faked them all only for Komasan to witness their existence as they leave.
