* Middle and Eastern Europe folklore of the 16th - 17th has an undead creature named "shroud-eater" or "chewing dead", which is a not-so-dead buried corpse who is eating its shroud (or its own flesh) because either because it is hungry or cannot leave its grave. It is the ancestor of the modern vampire, but shares some similarities with RevenantZombie (they mostly pestered their own family) and a kind of FleshEatingZombie which can also drink blood. Oh, and their shroud-gnawing was though to spread plagues. Zombie-Vampire-Plaguemaster, if you want.

* Believe it or not, most [[OurAngelsAreDifferent traditional abrahamic angels]]. Cherubim are described as tetramorphic creatures with four heads, one human, another that of a lion, another that of a bull and another that of an eagle with four avian wings, basically what happens when you mix all the "holy beasts" together. In 2 Enoch, there are angels with a lion's body and a crocodile's head that live in the Sun, clearly following the gryphon shtick to showcase the most badass creature around.
