- Is it required for this trope that these elements are accepted as normal? Or is it also okay if the elements are considered strange in-universe as well?
- Is it required for this trope that these elements do not influence the world as a whole? Or is it also okay if they affect world politics and so forth? Is it okay if the elements are too small-scale or too rare to affect the world as a whole?
- Do these elements have to be myth, or can they be random junk the author made up?
- Is it required for this trope that the setting is stated to be Earth (or consists of locations that look or are named just like Earth)?

- In All Myths Are True, examples feature both In-Universe myths and Real Life myths. the description itself also suggests this. (spilt this baby for clarity's sake, maybe?)
- add in Crossover Cosmology, which is another feature common in both Planet Eris and Fantasy Kitchen Sink at the moment. the description seems to go on and on about how it works, but not how it can be applied in fiction. probably why there are very few examples in it because it's hard to understand how the trope works.
- Planet Eris — Mundane characters and world somehow has supernatural elements. with no real reason other than it enables plot. 1 2
- Fantasy Kitchen Sink — Explicitly supernatural characters and world. made up of a combination or Real Life myths and legends. *
- Monster Mash — Pop culture monsters* duke it out in a mundane world. their presence in already fantastic world could be counted as under Fantasy Kitchen Sink.
- Crossover Cosmology — gods of different religions interact with each other, despite within their own mythos there are no gods.
- All Myths Are True — all real world myths are true In a World set explicitly on earth.
- In Universe Myths are Always True — If there's a myth mentioned, it will always turn out to be true.
