Mythical beings that are rarely used in stories?
Posted 6/17/09 , edited 6/17/09
Vampires, werewolves, demons, shinigami, witches, mermaids, dragons, elementals…we’ve all read them time and time again. They’re overrated and unoriginal, and when the author knows nothing about them and decides to add some creative changes to their legend it just makes it even worst.

So I was wondering, if anyone cared, if you can name any mythical beings that are rarely used in or talked about in fiction. I can't really think of any right now. Ok not elves, but...giant water serpents?

Um, I checked the search engine and found nothing. If you have a link than be my guest and bash the hell out of me like I know you will.

Gargoyles and gremliss are over used. I used to love the show gargoyles :P
Not to mention the movie "gremlins"
What about those creepy little things that eat unborn babies and live as them instead? >.<
My grandmother would always tell me about them. They creep me out..
*searches*

Elves are overused to hell and beyond that.


Lord of the Rings? Warcraft? Harry Potter? Every generic fantasy book?



Now, a creature that isn't often used..

The Norwegian mountain troll. Or the Swamp monster.

Now we're talking.

I'm saying pixies.

All you ever see are faeries. I honestly don't know the difference, but I swear there is one.

Peter Pan doesn't count cause it doesn't.

I never understood the difference between faeries and pixies as well.. O_O
When I was a kid, I would always hear stories that fairies were evil..
Then I come to north america and BAM! Cute little glowey things, that make you fly.

Fairies are small, elvish kind of creatures. Obsessed with beauty, and other things.

Whilst pixies are.. intelligent light bubbles.

Or wait, pixies are like tiny fairies, who often radiant a shiny light.
