Monster or Fairy？
Some of them are truly fairy and god! In the ancient china existed some incredible human-shape creature. If we don't say, people consider they are J.K. Rowling's or western legend's centaur, werewolf, troll...
e.g. Mount Sea Scripture mentions bird body dragon head god
from Mount Flaunt to Mount Dustpan ten mountains all the mount god are bird body dragon head.
Chinese centaur——human face horse body god
from Mount Bell to Mount Pigweed, all 17 mounts, all the ten god are human face and horse body.

Mount Sea Scripture records Xing Tian was minister of Emperor Fire, in one battle his head be cutted by the enemy. Although his head was cutted, he not die. He use two nipples as eyes, use belly button as mouth go on fighting.
