* ''Series/TheMagicians2016'': Fairies are all pale and wear light-colored clothing. Aside from that, they look basically like humans, though they [[BizarreAlienReproduction grow from mushrooms]]. They fit many of the folktale cliches, such as making exploitative deals with the humans, or switching others for their children.

But these are hardly the full extent of what Fairies can be. Just as [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Dragons]] can encompass many related creatures, fairies can include other mythological/fantasy creatures such as [[FaunsAndSatyrs Satyrs]], [[NatureSpirit Nymphs]], [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent Merfolk]], and even [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls]]. They often hang around with animals (especially Unicorns), which might possibly be Fay (or the equivalent) themselves. Fay animals, on their part, may resemble a normal animal, or could have wings, unnatural skin/fur tones, or even anthropomorphic features, such as a Humanlike face or even body. These can also encompass other creatures, such as Kelpies, Cait Sith(''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII no]]'') or {{Unicorn}}s.

Borrowing from British mythology, Fairies are often divided into Courts. The most common are the ''Seelie'' or Summer Court, and the ''Unseelie'' or Winter Court. Summer fairies are usually depicted are being more benevolent(for a given value of benevolent), and tend to include types like Sprites, Nymphs, Satyrs and High Elves. Winter Fairies on the other hand are typically seen as wicked, and include types like Redcaps, Boggarts, Trolls, and Dark Elves. This isn't always a case of AlwaysChaoticEvil, however, and it's just as possible for a Summer Fairy to kidnap a child as a Winter Fairy is to save you from a blizzard. Some works play it straight, while others see it as lighter and darker shades of [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Blue and Orange]].

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddparents'' are Fairies that have taken up the task of watching over a miserable human child in need. There is, however, a distinction between a fairy and a fairy godparent. Fairies are able to roam free in fairy world, living as they please. By going to the Fairy Academy, a fairy can become a fairy godparent and get assigned to a godchild. Fairy Godparents have more power in reality warping than normal Fairies, and are trained in happy wishmaking, as shown in "This Is Your Wish".

** The leader of the fairies is a muscular Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger-inspired character named Jorgen Von Strangle. This is because creator Creator/ButchHartman thought it would be funny to have the fairy leader be someone you'd least expect, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was the first thing that came to his mind.
