* In ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11898648/1/Harry-Potter-and-the-Rune-Stone-Path Harry Potter and the Rune Sone Path]]'' Ancient Runes professor Bathsheda Babbling acquired the nickname "Shiva" due to friends commenting that she was a "goddess of destruction" after a couple of dangerous experiments. Parvati Patil later points out that Shiva happens to be quite ''male'' and since she's named after his second wife, she ought to know.

* ''Series/RobinOfSherwood'' has Herne the Hunter as a powerful and possibly immortal shaman who is a core figure in English pagan spirituality. In actual folk tradition, he was only a not-very-powerful local ghost associated with the area around Windsor, and was either feared or despised rather than worshipped. There are no written records of the legend before it was used as a plot point by Creator/WilliamShakespeare in ''Theatre/TheMerryWivesOfWindsor''. ''Robin'' may have been influenced by earlier twentieth-century literary fantasies that treated him as more important, in particular John Masefield's ''Literature/TheBoxOfDelights'' and Susan Cooper's series ''Literature/TheDarkIsRising''.

** Again in ''Anime/ShinMazinger'' Zeus shows up but he is way different of the myth -let's say his severed hand is used to build the God Scrander-, and Hades is again a flaming, humongous GodofEvil.

** Typhoon was not a Titan in the original mythology. He was a monstrous enormous beast and the only being Zues feared and [[OneManArmy almost singlehandedly overthrew him]] but was defeated. However, his birth varies DependingOnTheWriter. Some stories have him as the son of Gaia with no father, born out of Gaia's rage at The Giants she sired being destroyed by Hercules and the Gods (although not stated to be a Giant himself) while other stories have Typhon as the son of Hera and only Hera. and another story has Typhon born thanks to Kronos semen being smeared across 2 rocks at the request of Hera because she was angry at Zues at the time. But in none of these stories is Typhon a Titan.

*** Bahamut, the benevolent god of good dragons, is similarly named for the giant fish/whale/turtle (depends who you ask) of Arabian myth, which carries the world on its back. Think 'Behemoth'.
*** Some people have also been getting angry at ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' for spreading the image that Bahamut was a dragon. Lies. Bahamut's been listed as a benevolent dragon in Dungeons and dragons canon since the 70s - ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'' was just based off of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons.'''
*** A minor interesting note, though, is that some time ago, D&D added a character named Kuyutha, Exarch of Bahamut (his champion of sorts), whose name is based on ''Kujata'', the giant bull who rests on top of Arabian Bahamut.

** Changelings in 3.5e D&D are humanoids that are part human and part doppelganger. Changelings in folklore are fairy children used as decoys for stolen babies. Magic: the Gathering has the same problem (using "changeling" to mean "a creature that changes").
*** Made even worse because in a third-edition issue of Dragon Magazine, where the fey children being swapped out with real ones was their actual origin, until they decided to make the Eberron Changelings.
