* Mr. Tumnus, a faun in ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia''. Also, other fauns are mentioned throughout the series, along with satyrs. The difference between them is that fauns have long tails, and satyrs have goat tails. [[Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia The films]] expanded this difference, and made fauns human from the waist up with regular got tails, and satyrs looking more like human-sized goats that walk on their hind legs.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has satyrs that are a combination of the fauns and satyrs of [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek Mythology]]. They like to party and they're great panpipe musicians, but generally spend their days frolicking in the woods. The 3.5 edition of ''Deities and Demigods'' also offers stats on fauns as a separate, less powerful, race (who unlike satyrs explicitly come in both male and female forms.) Also worth mentioning are the Ibixians, a race of humanoid goats.
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', satyrs and fauns are differentiated significantly. The former are defined as being [[TheHedonist hedonists]] while the latter are gentle (unless [[BerserkButton you mistake them for a satyr]]).

Interestingly, the first Fauns were actually born from the copulation of the Satyrs with particularly Good women.

Fauns and Satyrs, while originally quite different, have often been fused together, both in the original myths and modern fiction. (Which is why they share a page.) Both are human from the waist up, but fauns have the legs of deer, while satyrs have the legs of goats. Both may have pointed ears, or horns, or both -- and for some reason, both are likelier to be male (though fauns seem a bit more likely to have females.)

Originally, Satyrs had the tail and ears of either horses or donkeys, though later they acquired goat legs, becoming almost identical with fauns. In earlier Greek art they were portrayed as quite ugly, though later they became more youthful and graceful. They were associated with [[ReallyGetsAround sex]], [[TheAlcoholic wine]], and [[MagicalFlutist pipe playing]]. They also laughed at everything, and had reverence for none but their patron deity, Pan.

* Beastmen in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' are about all the darkest parts of this put together.
* Broos in ''TabletopGame/RuneQuest''. There are also actual satyrs. Mistaking the two for one another is ''not'' a good idea. The Broos are chaos creatures that breed by raping any creatures that are available (all Broos are male), and their offspring takes features of those creatures. Farm animals, especially goats are apparently most easily available for them.

* ''Film/PansLabyrinth'' has a faun, although in a twist authorized by the RuleOfCreepy, he seems to be made mostly of rotting wood, thus representing a fusion of both the animal and vegetable realms of nature.
* Film/{{Percy Jackson|AndTheOlympians}}'s BlackBestFriend Grover, at least in the movie.



* In ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'', Torgo is meant to be one, but instead just looks like a guy with wonky knees.
* What little we in see of [[spoiler:the [[BadSanta real Santa Claus]]]] in ''Film/RareExportsAChristmasTale'' implies him to be a creature like this.
* Pan the pipe-playing God of Joy is one of the ''Film/SevenFacesOfDrLao''.

* In ''Literature/ThisImmortal'', there are satyrs in inland Greece, although they are the result of genetic mustations caused by nuclear pollution and superstition, with people abandoning their mutant newborns in the forest and some of those babies growing up to become satyrs. Satyrs are said to be of subhuman, limited intelligence and to love dance and pipe playing, but to otherwise be very shy.

* Speaking of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, "Satyrs" have become somewhat popular on 4Chan's /mlp/ board and [[FanCommunityNicknames brony]] sites like Derpibooru. Essentially they are the theoretical offspring of Anonymous and one of the ponies, with the entire Mane 6 having Fanon satyr children all with generally agreed-upon appearances and personalities. Even a number of minor characters like Gilda, a Griffin in canon, and Chrysalis have been done as well, and even one of the Diamond Dogsnote, a Dog humanoid in canon.
