Mythology AUs often involve re-imagining a character or characters as a mythological figure, usually a God or Goddess. Creators usually take their inspiration from Greek or Roman Mythology, but works building on Norse myths, Celtic mythology and folklore, and lesser known mythologies also appear.

A common storyline involves a God or Goddess living in the modern world and falling for an unsuspecting mortal.

Within works based on Greek Gods, the story of Hades and Persephone is often recast and retold.
