* 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.

* 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.
