Hydra. All those heads could spring forth and threaten those who make life a misery!

I’m going to second unicorns. It’s one of the few mythical creatures that will neither haunt nor harm us.

I would want the shits-a-lotta-presents-saurus. Yes, I just made it up but it’s still in myths that I would tell. Basically, it’s a dinosaur that looks like a small pterodactyl that poops out presents that range from $1,000,000 to bars of gold to rainbows to party liquor and the list goes on and on. It does this about 100 times a day so it’s like extreme Christmas all day everyday!

I don’t think I’d have the nerve to ride her, but I’d love to watch her fly.
I’d just hope that she only went potty when she was on land.

@ChazMaz -The Koolaid guy never springs for beer and Al Gore throws the bottles on the front lawn.Terrible mythical creatures,IMO.

An honest politician.

CMaz's avatar

Well, it provides the The Brawny paper towel guy something to do.
IMO ;-)

@ChazMaz-His job is to just sit there and be pretty ;)

Can I have a mermaid?.... Please? Daryl Hannah lookalike would be ok.

Rub a dub dub!
I’d never leave the tub.

CMaz's avatar

Have or be one?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@ChazMaz Interesting angle. I’d like a pet dragon.

janbb's avatar

Am I hearing only three orders for centaurs then or anyone else want one while I’m going to the store?

Dr_Dredd's avatar

I’d like to be a mermaid. I’d love to be able to swim underwater for long periods. The one time I tried scuba was a miserable failure, though.

Brian1946's avatar


Have you ever taken a merhuman anatomy class?
If so, where are their gills? :p

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Is there a male equivalent of a mermaid?

Dr_Dredd's avatar

@Brian1946 Sorry. Comparative anatomy wasn’t on the curriculum.

@Adirondackwannabe I think it would be merman (but not Ethel, though)

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Werewolves. Not because of the movie twilight, but because i love wolves.

tinyfaery's avatar

Mermaids or shape-shifters. Only because I want to be either one.

aprilsimnel's avatar

Well, in terms of just mythical beings in general, I’d like the Greek Pantheon to be real. I’d be hanging out with Apollo as often as possible.

Austinlad's avatar

A U.S. President whom everybody respected and supported.

The house cleaning fairies?

CMaz's avatar

@NaturallyMe – Send them my way after you find them.

NaturallyMe's avatar

@ChazMaz….ummm….surely you jest….? I ain’t letting ‘em out my house, ever.

lonelydragon's avatar

Nifflers from the Harry Potter books. I’d be rich!

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

Not whatever the hell is in that movie Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark or whatever the hell comes out of Guillermo Del Toro’s brain. I’d want to see Sun Wukong. That’d be sweet.

I would love it if they discovered that the Loch Ness monster was/is real however, I worry about what we would do to the poor creature for the sake of science if it was discovered to still be alive today.

rts486's avatar

A griffin, because they represent strength and vigilance.

Scooby's avatar

Dragons, just because they seem to be a big part of western & eastern folk traditions, something we have in common…
So many to choose from :-/
