Cryptids are animals or beings thought to exist by certain people, but not generally accepted. They include urban legends. An Urban Legend is defined as:

"A modern story of obscure origin and with little or no supporting evidence that spreads spontaneously in varying forms and often has elements of humor, moralizing, or horror."

Cryptids are common legends spread though-out the modern world. Cryptids are not myths, as they are more modern and have current origins. An example of an urban legend would be a Poltergiest, meanwhile a mythical creature would be a Cyclops.
