Is there a subtrope to this which applies to mythical creatures? Some would argue Our Monsters Are Different. But there's a big difference between 'different' and 'barely (if at all) resembling the myth from which the creature originates'. The Shin Megami Tensei franchise is kind of a notorious offender of what I'm discussing.

Call a Pegasus a "Hippogriff"?

(You might want to ask at Lost and Found if that doesn't suit)

We need to send this trope to the repair shop. The amount of nitpicking in this trope's examples is disgusting. Seriously, 80% of them need to be removed. It's always like "the pterodactyl's wings are too skinny", "the elephant is too small" "the rabbit's fur is the wrong colour!", or "the snake has too many teeth!". There's something called stylized design people! Or should we just say "the animal is actually a moving set of pixels or a picture on a background."

Wait, isn't Rafikki a mandrill?

Scratch that, this whole trope is so pedantic it doesn't even matter...
