*** Similarly, because both [[TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening Mages]] and Geniuses are human-looking supernaturals capable of bending the laws of physics and gaining their powers through a form of EnlightenmentSuperpower, it's not unusual for Geniuses to mistake a recently awakened Mage for one of them, and for Mages to mistake a recently Inspired Genius for a Mage. The Scholastics and the Free Council have an agreement specifically created so they can exchange members should that sort of thing happen.

* 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 [[OurZombiesAreDeader Zombie]] whose precognitive flashes are memories from the brains she eats at the morgue.

* In ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', the large majority of super-powered people were either Gifted people, the Avengers, and Inhumans. Because of this, when Ghost Rider is introduced in season 4 as the very first supernatural being of the show, people initially assume he is an Inhuman, and are sceptical when he insits he actually got his powers from a DealWithTheDevil.

** In other fangame ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', one of the main reason [[MadScientist Geniuses]] have a hard time dealing with supernaturals is because of this trope: Mania, the energy they get their power from, occasionally ends up creating beings called Manes, which are physical manifestations of discredited theories, and can occasionally give birth to strange creatures such as dinosaurs, nazi sorcerers, aliens and even a specific representation of angels and demons. Because of this, it is somewhat difficult for them to figure out which supernaturals are Manes, and which ones are entirely different creatures born from another source.

** For those who are curious...there are three types of werewolves.
** Dabblers; Shapeshifters who use transformative magics to turn themselves into a wolf, or wolf-like being. This is considered INSANELY dangerous, and stupid. It causes severe mental and physical stress,
** Therianthropes: A race of non-humans, who naturally have the ability to turn into a perfectly normal wolf. Or, rather, wolves who evolved the ability to turn into a human, and eventually reached the point where they are more human then wolf. Natural mimics, they are indistinguishable from humans. Some can turn into things OTHER then a wolf.
** Cursed. People under a curse to turn into a ravenous wolf-monster every full moon. So...basically, your standard werewolf.

* In the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novel ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', when newly-revived zombie Windle Poons is introduced to the MonsterMash of the Fresh Start Club, he assumes the hairy and wolf-like Brother Lupin is a werewolf. Lupin corrects him, he's a were''man''. Every full moon, some of his hair falls out and he starts walking on two legs.

*** An example can also be found on the antagonist lists for Princesses. Among the differents Creatures of the Darkness the Hopeful fight, there are two kinds, the Mnemosyne[[note]]humans who lost their last shred of integrity while [[TheCorruption Darkened]] but didn't have their body warped enough to become mindless monsters[[/note]] and the Cataphractoi[[note]]sentient Darkspawns born from the death of someone who crossed the DespairEventHorizon[[/note]], who frequently mixed up because they are both [[HumanoidAbomination completely human-looking]] and capable of [[MonsterLord controlling lesser Darkspawns]]. Making such a mistake actually is quite dangerous, since a key difference between the two is that Mnemosyne are {{Squishy Wizard}}s, while Cataphractoi have a ''very'' powerful OneWingedAngel form.
