A Strange Quiz to Discover Your Mythical Creature

You should answer a set of myth-themed psychological questions to determine what type of legendary creature resembles you. But there is a catch. During some parts of the quiz, you play the role of a folklore hero fighting and killing these mysterious beings. The way you interact with them, your weapon choices, along your feelings will expose your perfect match.

The basis of the test is similar to discovering your Spirit Animal. However, the style is different. You need to slaughter the creature within you to unleash it.

Using Four Distinct Categories and 15+ Creatures

Your big question (probably) is, “What mythical creature am I?” But keep in mind that almost all ancient cultures have their own folklore stories, legends, and, therefore, fictional beings. So, your region and belief system change the answer to the said question.

We included four of the most inspiring traditions to make the test more accurate. Below is a list of all the legends we used.

Greek Mythology

The word “myth” has become interchangeable with Greek folklore. That is because their stories and legends have been vastly adapted and used in the entertainment industry. You know the names of at least a couple of Greek Gods, and you are probably familiar with a bunch of their legendary animals. That is why we included the majority of their folklore beings in our Mythical Quiz.

Arabian Mythology

Arabs’ folklore fairytales are deeply connected with their predominant religious belief, Islam. Creatures such as Jinn and Qareen got popularized through works of art and literature such as Arabian Nights and One Thousand One Night.

Norse Mythology

Many people who ask, “What mythical creature am I?” would love to match Nordic beings. That is because they usually have cool and distinct looks. Fenrir, for example, is a well-known wolf-like hybrid that has made its way into modern video games and movies due to its desirable appearance.

Celtic Mythology

The religion of the Iron Age Celts includes lots of legendary animals and beings. Although they are not as popular as their Greek counterparts, Celtic mythical creatures are pretty admirable. Leannán Sídhe, for instance, is a fairy lover who usually wanders around cemeteries. And her goal is to find men who lost their wives and are looking for another lover.
