** ArchangelGabriel is strangely TheTrickster. In fairness he's pretending to be Loki, but no traditional interpretation of Gabriel puts him anywhere near that personality.

* In the episode "Escape to the House of Mummies - Part II" of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', the trope is [[InvokedTrope invoked]] to establish contrast between Dr. Orpheus and his [[MentorArchetype Master]]. The Master appears as a large three-headed dog and says he took the form of "Argos". Dr. Orpheus immediately corrects him that Argos was the completely mundane dog of Odysseus, and he means "Cerberus". The implication is that The Master did this on purpose to point out that Orpheus can be an unpleasant know-it-all. He's not wrong, because Dr. Orpheus is an expert at averting this trope:
-->'''Dr. Orpheus:''' What pyramid cult?\\
'''Dr. Venture:''' I don't know. Papyrus, Osiris, something like that. You ever heard of him?\\
'''Dr. Orpheus:''' Osiris cult? [[LargeHam OSIRIS?!]] First-born son of the womb of Nut, begotten of Geb, the Lord of Ekhet, whose existence is forever-lasting? [[SarcasmMode Yes, I've heard of him.]] Do you even know what I do for a living?

** Poseidon is capable of releasing the Kraken. In truth, Kraken is a creature from the Norse mythology and while Poseidon has control over a sea creature (like in the Andromeda tale), it's more usually a Sea Serpent. Kraken was shoehorned in to make a reference to ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans''.

** The lamia is a monster that, depending on the edition, is: a woman's upper body with a snake's tail instead of legs; a female lion-taur; or a woman who can turn into a swarm of insects ''a la'' the Mummy. In Greek mythology, Lamia was a woman transformed into a child-killing demon, and later a whole class of quasi-vampiric spirits were called ''lamiae'' (singular ''lamia''). Lamia also got confused with the Kabbalistic Lillith, a ''different'' child-killing demon, at some point. Just to keep score, the snake-woman's real name is "Echidna," the liontaur is "Urmahlullu," and the swarm-shifter is "Totally Awesome."

** A few of the monsters lifted straight from the medieval bestiaries are given heavy artistic license. Bestiary 4's Barometz refers to a gigantic ram-shaped mass of vegetation created by druids as a nature guardian whereas the mythical one was simply a very odd plant with a lamb attached to it like an umbilical cord. Also from Bestiary 4, the Myremecoleon is an elephant-sized insect that spews acid while the mythical inspiration was a giant ant with a lion's head whose gimmick was it could not eat plants or meat, so it always starved to death.

* ''VisualNovel/KamigamiNoAsobi'' might be the most heartwarming example here ([[TheAnimeOfTheGame the anime, at least]]). In Norse mythology, there are various ways the story is said to have gone down, but the gist of it is that Loki kills Baldr, or tricks someone else into it, ForTheEvulz, and sets off a massive war by killing the god everyone loved. In KamiAso, though, [[spoiler: Loki ''had'' to kill Baldr because Baldr was fated to transform from the God of Light into the God of Destruction - something about balance. But Loki was actually in love with Baldr and didn't want to have to kill him. After some heartwrenching drama, and heartwarming moments as the rest of the CrossoverCosmolgy harem tries to save them, Baldr doesn't have to die in the end, and they can be happy together.]]



* In ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' there's a scene of Eriol expressing the spirit of church hymes... Except he totally didn't do the research, and winds up describing Shinto instead of Christianity.
