Whoops.
* In German, there's the common term of the ''Eierlegende Wollmilchsau'' or ''egg laying wool-milk-sow'', the holy grail of farmers and by extension any manufacturing business. One animal (or product) that produces absolutely everything and addresses anything the customer might wish for.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' gives us an example using already fantastical monsters with the [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent Gremloblin]], a cross between goblins and gremlins. Apparently, those who gaze into it's eyes are shown their worst nightmares and in all cases suffer [[BrownNote catatonia]] from it. Contact with water also makes them turn far more menacing, even growing wings. ** In a later episode, after Mabel witnesses [[ItMakesSenseInContext a Snake and a Badger fall in love]], she excitedly claims that they're going to make a "[[LegoGenetics Snadger]]".

* Look at an old ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article73.htm Monster Manual]] sometime. The Displacer Beast (a six-legged panther with tentacles on its shoulders that is never where you see it; interestingly, it was derived from Coeurl, the villain of a 1920s/1930s sci-fi short story) and Owlbear (guess!) spring to mind. The new Monster Manuals continue this fine tradition with such gems as the Howler Wasp (half-wasp, half-monkey) and Yak-People.

* Season 1 of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' has featured a manticore (in episode 2), a griffin (in episode 5), and a cockatrice (in episode 17). Discord, the villain of the season 2 premiere "The Return of Harmony", is a vaguely dragon-like creature called a "Draconequus" with the head of a pony and a mish-mash of other animal parts, including a pair of mismatched antlers, a lion's paw, an eagle's talon, and a snake's tail. Season 3 has "fruit bats" which are, here, portrayed as literally hybrids of bats and fruit (which eat fruit in turn). Season 4 brings them back in a DarkerAndEdgier form as "vampire fruit bats". In the same episode, Fluttershy accidentally becomes a "vampire batpony", gaining certain bat-like physical traits and an overwhelming hunger for apples.

** Persian mythology gave us the sphinx-like Manticore, a carnivorous, monstrous beast with a humanoid face and a mouthful of sharp teeth, the mane and the body of a lion and the tail of either a scorpion or a dragon which can shoot poisonous spikes. In modern fantasy, it is common to give them bat-like wings as well. The monster originated in Persian folklore, but eventually found its way into Greek mythology.

** Both Orthus and Cerberus must have been insanely jealous of three of their other siblings: the Khimera, the Lernaean Hydra that started out with nine heads and could generate more, and Ladon, a dragon with ''100 heads''. At least they beat out the Nemean Lion (not Mix and Match) and the Sphinx (indeed Mix and Match).
