Maybe Hercules and, less plausibly, King Arthur. In current legends,
probably not Napoleon. But I suppose that it is all subjective.

This word is basically meant to be crida, but not restricted humanoids.
I view crida to be "remsmi()crami". This word includes unicorns,
centaurs, manticores, ogres, dragons, vampires, monkey-tigers, the Loch
Ness monster, magic fish, ghost mushrooms, flobberworms, Hobbits,
winged-horses, griffins, hippogriffs, basilisks, elves, etc.

It excludes magic/mythological items (horns that bring back the dead,
swords that only take in that which makes them stronger, Horcruxes, the
Holy Grail, etc.) or materials (mythril, etc.), or the magic/divinity which
may embue some items/materials (hydrargum, gold, lead, consecrated
objects).

The creatures do need to appear in any particular story- or even a
well-defined "tale" with a plot. They can be urban legends or bogeyman
(but not necessarily humanoid). A culture just needs to have a sense of
their existence and they have to be somewhat "living/animate", and they
cannot actually exist.
