* [[XMen Mutants]] in the Marvel Universe frequently end up being mistaken for various supernatural creatures. For example, {{ComicBook/Nightcrawler}} may have a forked tail and his teleports smell of sulfur, but he's no demon. Storm and her tribe thought she was a goddess until Professor Xavier found her and explained what mutants were. The more recent character Oya was nearly killed for being a witch when her temperature manipulation powers emerged.

** This tends to happen pretty often in ''TabletopGame/HunterTheVigil''. Hunters are for the most part poorly informed about the supernatural, many of them have completely incorrect belief on it ([[ChurchMilitant The Malleus Maleficarum and the Long Night]] are both convinced every single supernatural creature is either a demon or connected to the Demons, and Les Mysteres believe them to all be connected to spirits), and there are plenty of monsters who don't even fit any of the established categories, so confusion between multiple types is common occurrence.

*** It doesn't help either that most supernatural species [[VampireVarietyPack come themselves in a wide variety of subspecies]], and an archetypal mythological monster can sometimes match the descriptions of several subspecies from different species at the same time. [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Vampires]], [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost Changelings]], [[TabletopGame/BeastThePrimordial Beasts]] and [[TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated Prometheans]] each have at least one subspecies matching the HornyDevil[=/=]EnthrallingSiren archetype. Another Promethean subspecies, the Osirians, pretty much ''are'' mummies in appearance and regarding some of their abilities, despite having no relation to [[TabletopGame/MummyTheCurse the "true" Mummies]]. Most supernaturals practice at least one form of ritualistic FunctionalMagic (Rites for werewolves, Blood Sorcery for vampires, Ceremonies for [[TabletopGame/GeistTheSinEaters Sin-Eaters]]...) that is distinct from the one used by [[TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening Mages]]. Both [[TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent Demons]] and [[TabletopGame/ChangelingTheLost Fae]] can make {{Magically Binding Contract}}s. And that's not even getting into the fact there are around two to three different types of creatures fitting the definition for "Demons" (the [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken the Maeljin]], [[TabletopGame/DemonTheDescent the Unchained]]...) despite having ''nothing'' to do with each other.

If someone has to actually keep ''saying'' that they're "Totally Not A Werewolf", [[TemptingFate beware]]: They may also be MostDefinitelyNotAVillain, and one should consult InsistentTerminology for more details.

* Olivia Moore, the protagonist from ''Series/IZombie'', justifies her ability to sense how people were killed by telling her partner she is a [[PsychicPowers psychic]]. This is actually a lie to cover the much [[DarkSecret darker]] truth on the matter- she actually is a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]] whose precognitive flashes are memories from the brains she eats at the morgue.

** The inverse happens as well, with anyone with super powers being mistaken for a mutant until their origin is known to the public. You'd think it wouldn't matter that speedster got his powers from [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks mongoose blood]] instead of [[SuperpowerfulGenetics genetic]], but it apparently does.
