Supernatural Collective Nouns
Here you will find the collective nouns for supernatural creatures from apparitions to zombies to homunculi.
A Cackle of Mad Scientists
Mad scientists and geniuses gone mad have been the villains in many cartoons. Murderers, psychopaths, serial-killers, and terrorists have been the bad guys in many books and movies. Perhaps one of your characters has a psychotic personality.
A Coven of Witches
Does your story need a monster that appears to be human? Beings like clones and mutants appear to be completely normal individuals. They could be evil or heroic. From a clamor of clones to a fellowship of wizards, I invite you to explore the supernatural human class collective nouns.

Just about everyone loves to read about mythological creatures. Basilisks, centaurs, cockatrices, dinosaurs, and dragons are mentioned in this article.

A Sleigh of Santa Claus
Leprechauns, naiads, nymphs, pixies, and sprites, will any of these have a place in your story? Some are tricky, some are nice, and some can be either crafty or kind. Maybe it really does make a difference which side of the bed they get up from. Then there is Santa Claus. Santa is an elf?

A Storm of Ifrits
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
When your character is wrestling against demonic beings, you will know what to call them.
A Tangle of Gorgons
When I think of monsters, I think of scary movies and childhood nightmares. Monsters were always hiding in the dark, never wanting to be seen in the light of day. Not all monsters hide in the dark or lurk in the corners of our imagination. Some of them rule between the covers of novels.
A Tizzy of Fairies
Have the Babas Yaga kidnapped your character's child, or are they comforting her because of her loss? Perhaps your character has a hustle of brownies living with him. Are they helpful, or are they mischievous?What about that lawn of gnomes? Have they come to life?

Mummies, golems, dhampirs, revenants, skeletons, vampires, wendigoes, and zombies are creatures of the night that some people think of only around Halloween, while the minds of others dwell on these creatures year-round. One of these creatures would make a haunting addition to any scary story.
