I have a soft spot for Cerberus the 3 headed dog-like creature who guards the entrance to Hades. A wonderfully hideous Greek invention. But I love all those mythological animals, from the Gorgon to the Kraken....beautiful, frightening, fantastic.
I could quite happily live in a world where these sort of creatures live, and where story reigns supreme.
Great answer! Cerberus is definitely one of my favorites. I played the game "Age of Mythology" growing up and it definitely made me fall in love with Greek mythical creatures like the Kraken, Minotaur and Centaur!
I have loved unicorns ever since I was a little girl. I think it's because they are so beautiful and are usually on the side of good. I guess it made me feel safe. I have several unicorn pictures, two of which have been up in my room for probably more than a decade. I have not seen all of "Legend", but I have seen the footage of the unicorns. I also love the gorgeous unicorn that is briefly in the movie "Stardust".
The Unicorn. Half horse and the horn does not bother me. I think a unicorn would make a good friend and I know there are poems about them. Unicorns are found on tapestry, on merry-go-rounds and I suppose if I ever opened a business I'd call it Uniquely Unicorns. We read much about mythical creatures in College. And kids don't seem to be afraid of unicorns. It would be nice to polish the horn and I could use the horn to grab things, but not for fighting. They come in every size, shape,and form.
Pegasus. Though I don't think it's mythical. I think we took a wrong turn at Jupiter and ended up in the wrong place. A place where Pegasus realized "I'm in the wrong place, see ya!" And flew off. I fly on Pegasus in my dreams so I know it's real!
My son's favorite mythical creature is Hydra, the seven-headed dragon that when one head was being slayed, another two heads will appear. And the only one that could kill Hydra is through Medusa, the snake-headed woman .
