About This Quiz

By definition, mythical creatures are beings or monsters that have been imagined or invented by humans. Some of them are based on sightings-that have no proof or evidence, while others were completely made up by different cultures and have been put in stories, books, and more recently, movies. They include things like mermaids, werewolves, centaurs, chimeras, and griffins.

One often hears about these creatures in stories meant to scare children into behaving, by delusional people who have claimed to see them but can provide no substantiation to their declarations and in movies like the "Harry Potter" series, the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "Underworld." But what if these creatures were actually real? What if you could be one of them? Just which one would it be? 

Would you be a fearsome dragon who could breathe fire and melt your enemies? Or what about a rare unicorn who has magical powers? Maybe you'd be an elf - they may just be the most graceful of all mythical beings. Or are you actually a fairy? Well, if you want to find out just what you would be, take our quiz! It may just explain some things about why you are the way you are.
