I don't know if this counts, but...

I remember once, when i was reading some articles about Greek Mythology, it mentioned a creature called an Acephali...

Acephali- headless humanoids.



Acephali: These creatures look exactly like humans except for one important detail: their faces are on their chests. Some of them do have heads, which they carry around with them under their arm. The Acephali are said to have once been human, but they rebelled against the gods and to punish them the gods removed their heads.

Is this correct? They sound scary yet cool at the same time.



Yep, that sounds about right...

I also read somewhere that some of them may have removable heads, which they usually carry in their arms.

...the small elephant...mythical cause people can't truly figure out if they exist or not, and when find a small elephant wonder if it's really a elephant or um, baby elephant( fetus, that's the word,lol).

and i'm sure there's this special one i have in memory but can't remember.

Centaurs: you hardly see them anywhere in anime


Satyr: never seen one so far


Giants EDIT: Forget giants. Mecha are giants.

I also thought about a minotaurs but the Tower of Druaga was full of minotaurs.

They could also start using some european dragons. The asian/snakelike Dragon is kind of overused.



I also can't remember ever seeing a sphinx in anime or a griffon.


Can't think of anymore right now.

I try to think of some, but the ones that pop in my mind are from movies; so I can't use them. I think I remember a pixie in the movie "Legend" w/ Tom Cruise (sorta old school and flipped out). Sorry wiki it she was just a fairy. So I guess pixies, and what the dude above said sphinx and griffins; people have heard of them but don't see them often in movies, tv, etc etc. Except the griffin in WC3.
