Mythological, mythical, or legendary creatures are fictitious supernatural creatures that have been described in different folklore, fairy tales, legends, poetry, and novels. Many of them have been made up purely from one's imagination, while there are others like the Minotaur and the Centaur that are based on real-life animals.
There are people out there who have claimed to encounter some of these creatures, even providing what they believe to be evidence to support their claims. But the fact that there haven't been any photographed sightings, remains or scientific evidence, makes them pure myth.
Over the last few centuries, there have been an increase in the number of these creatures, some of them more popular than the rest. For example, we have all heard tales about the Cerberus who guards the gates of the underworld, the Sirens which lure sailors to their deaths, the Unicorn whose horn posses magic healing abilities, and the Phoenix which rises from the ashes, reborn.
