May overlap with GiantFlyer should the gryphon have wings. The wingless opinicus never flies, being seemingly not as magical as [[OurDragonsAreDifferent eastern dragons]]. In contrast to their formerly benign religious symbolism, an example being the Gryphon in Dante's DivineComedy, which represents the mingling of the human and divine natures in [[{{Jesus}} Christ]], modern gryphons often appear as dark if not demonic, though [[DarkIsNotEvil they might still be good]]; or [[LightIsNotGood they may be light-themed but evil]]. They are sometimes used as [[HorseOfADifferentColor flying steeds]]. If gryphons are used as part of the UsefulNotes/FurryFandom, one may then expect a WingedHumanoid to be present.

* ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'' has the Gryphon, who is initially held captive by the Mad Hatter. Alice frees him, and he helps lead her force against the Red Queen's army. [[spoiler: He is killed in an aerial duel with the Jabberwock, and his corpse is pretty much one of the only things that Alice can take cover behind in the ensuing boss fight.]]

* Just what is Graer the [[https://i.ytimg.com/vi/6rKF8dXSTUQ/hqdefault.jpg gryphon]] from ''WorldOfQuest'' supposed to be anyway? Sure doesn't look gryphonesque. He kinda looks like Magilla Gorilla with Anime-wings, or maybe more or less a cartoony Opinicus. Has the beak, the wings, the tail, and the lion forelegs. His cartoony proportions just make it a bit less obvious.

* In the StarTrekNovelVerse, the Kinshaya race are essentially griffins, being mammals with four legs and a pair of wings sprouting from their back. They are too heavy to fly, though- in modern Kinshaya, the wings are used for display purposes instead.

* Like all Speakers in ''TheDragonWarsSaga'', gryphons come in various types depending on affinity. Kimi has an ice affinity and is half arctic eagle, half snow leopard.

* According to Fu-Dog in ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'', gryphons lay an egg only once every thousand years. Once the baby hatches, [[BizarreAlienBiology the mother actually SWALLOWS the baby, which lives in its digestive tract for a week or two before it's healthy enough for the mother to throw back up and live on its own]]. Of course, this all grosses out Jake.

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has both classic style gryphons and hippogriffs, the latter with antlers. The former are associated with dwarves, in particular the Wildhammer Clan, while the latter are associated with night elves. "Standard" (dwarven) gryphons function as the default flying mount for the Alliance. Whether these are meant as a reference to perytons or just a function of the RuleOfCool is unknown.
** WoW hippogryphs are raven/stag hybrids, hence the antlers.
