* In ''Series/TorchWood'' fairies are actually children snatched out of time and turned into creatures humans initially see as light, but who have a true form of a gremlin-like monster. They choke people with rose pedals that wrong the children they'd chosen to join them and spontaneously cause severe weather.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has had fairies as far back as Generation 1, primarily ''Clefairy'' and Clefable. Generation 3's egg groups (specifying families of interfertile Pokemon) included Fairy type, which comprised most of the {{Ridiculously Cute Critter}}s, including Pikachu. Generation 6 went so far as to introduce an entire [[ElementalRockPaperScissors Fairy-type]], shaking up the game balance something fierce by giving them an advantage over the fearsome Dragon and Dark types. Modern Fairy-types are usually the Cute Critters (note: Jigglypuff the Balloon Pokemon is now completely immune to Dragon attacks), but there a few members of [[TheFairFolk greater dignity]] like ProperLady Gardevoir and TheMarvelousDeer Xerneas and some who double as TheTrickster like deceptive Mawile and thieving Klefki. Generation 7 introduces Magearna, who is an artificially created MechanicalLifeform that's a fairy.

All of them belong to an egg group (a classification of Pokemon is now completely immune that can [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction breed with each other]]) called the Fairy egg group (including SeriesMascot Pikachu). It wasn't until ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' that Fairy was introduced as an actual type. It was introduced to [[{{Nerf}} combat the overpowered]] [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragon attacks), but there a few members of [[TheFairFolk greater dignity]] types]]. Many older Pokemon [[{{Retcon}} were given the new type]]. These range from the previously mentioned Clefairy, to more mystic ones like ProperLady Gardevoir and TheMarvelousDeer Xerneas and some who double as TheTrickster devious ones like deceptive Mawile and thieving Klefki.

In ''Fanfic/TheirMidnightRevels''-There are some differences in Miranda and Arielís interactions with Thomas and Edith that are contrary to typical folklore portrayals. For example nothing goes wrong when Edith and Thomas eat the food in Faerie, perhaps because they are enchanted already or because Miranda and Ariel swore that they were under their magical protection, nothing would happen to them.Also Miranda and Ariel make it clear that nothing is being done with Edith or Thomasí free will. They ask them to join the Revels and later ask them to remain in Faerie letting them know all of the consequences beforehand.
While OíBrien mentions the possibility that Sybilís child may be a changeling, one look shows that he is not. Perhaps, because Bobby was not taken by either his own free will or his parents.íAlso Miranda and Arielís characters evolve when they realize that they love Edith and Thomas.

* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cottingley_Fairies Cottingley Fairies]] were supposedly photos of actual fairies (small and winged, not the [[TheFairFolk other]] [[TheWildHunt kind]]) in 1917. A numbers of celebrities were caught up in the hype, including {{Arthur Conan Doyle}}, before the sisters who took the photos confessed they were fake. They still claimed to have seen actual fairies, and one sister would later insist that [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/cc/Cottingley-sunbath.jpg one]] of the pictures (the lowest-quality one, incidentally) was real.
