    Default What is your favourite mythical creature?

    Mythical creatures have been devised throughout history by many different civilisations. People seem to be drawn to exciting and unknown ideas.

    There are countless mythical creatures out there so the poll options just include a handful of well-known species. My favourite is the Werewolf, tied closely with the Dragon and Minotaur! I particularly enjoy the type of Werewolf that takes the form of a bipedal wolf, similar to those in the 2004 movie Van Helsing.

    Tell me why your favourite is special to you, and if you select "Other" please elaborate and provide a picture if possible! (Keep in mind that pictures can't exceed 500kb in size!)

    The Greek Sphinx said to have guarded Thebes is interesting. I love the idea of a creature that killed a devoured all unable to solve its riddle. It's like the Riddler from Batman but with a cooler appearance, so that's one of my favourites I love riddles and birds so I have no reason not to like it. I'm also a very big fan of the Manticore and the Basilisk, but my favourite has to be the Hydra. I love snakes, I love dragons in general, and regenerating heads is just bloody cool.

    Dragons are so awesome, and I really like Vampires and Werewolfs. When I was a kid, Vampires used to scare the crap out of me. Eventually, when I got older, I started to get into horror flicks. I ended up liking Vampires.

    I'll throw in a vote for griffins - I like them as much as I do dragons.

    Dragons, whether they're from Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! or whatever.

    I've always loved mythology and mythical creatures and the like. Of the stuff listed in the poll I'd say werewolves or dragons are my favourite but there's a bunch of fairy folklore in Ireland too, so I grew up hearing stories about that and they've always interested me. The dullahan and the banshee are probably the creepiest/my favourites in that regard.

    Dragons by far. They are the alpha mythical creature.

    Always had a thing for mythical snakes, like the midgard serpent; good god is that thing awesome. I guess that applies to gorgons as well.

    Well, and you could probably guess this, I've always been fond of vampires. So, they're probably my favorite (though mermaids, unicorns, and all the rabbit-based creatures are pretty high up on the list).

    They're all pretty rad, but I've always thought werewolves were the coolest.

    The Phoenix is my personal favorite due to its looks and how it is portrayed in legends. I also think it's cool how it will die in flames only to be reborn. All the different types of dragons are my second favorite mythological creature.

    Dragons slightly edge out the Hydra IMO

    Dragon I guess, because being able to fly is the ultimate freedom.
    Each time they take a photograph
    I lose a part I can't get back
    I wanna hide, this is the part where I dettach
    Each time they write a hateful word
    Dragging my soul into the dirt
    I wanna die
    Never admit it but it hurts

    I don't wanna talk about it right now
    Just hold me while I cry my eyes out
    I'm not Joan of Arc, not yet

    Werewolves are my favorite. Although I actually prefer the Full on wolf transformation. Not a big of a fan of the bipedal ones like...ex: Lupin vs Sirius in Harry Potter. (Even though Sirius looked more like a dog ._. just was the closest to description I could think of.)

    I also have a thing for wings. More like majestic, exotic, angelic looking ones, but I do like Phoenixes and the Pegasus.

    Also Angels, but I guess thats another territory <.>

    Pegassi are my favorite, though phoenixes (?) and dragons are not far behind.

    Dragons and griffins are so close to be my favorites, so I can't really decide which one is my absolute favorite.

    Unicorns are pretty neat, or at least our modern interpretations of them. Yes, the girly sparkly ones. xD

    Something about the ancient Egyptian Anubis fascinates me, too. I don't know why. It's not really their role, just their aesthetics and stuff.

    I like chimeras and manticores tbh, and I guess dragons are pretty cool too.
