Of myths and legends
Not following laws and physics
Maui Fish Hooking The Sun
A tree standing back up a day after it had fallen
Grain Of Truth
Maybe the Māori people in the stories (Who probably have died)
Based off a true story
Its one of those things which some people believe, some people dont.
Things that wouldn't really exist
E.g. Unicorns, Pegasus, Dragons, Werewolves, Fairies, Vampires etc.
The magical creatures are very similar to animals or people like unicorn - horse with a horn on it's head with magical powers or vampire - an evil person with long fangs which suck blood

Gods and Goddesses
Here are some examples for some Māori gods:
E.g. The Rain God and the Sun God from the story "A Piece Of Paradise" which told of how the Southern Cross arrived in our sky
God of the forest
Wild food plants
weather and storms
War and hunting
God and Goddess numbers
The real problem comes from Hinduism which according the their scriptures has 320 million gods, Some Hindu's will say there is only one god with 320 million forms, but certainly enough believe in this total that they would exceed your 100,000 limit and therefore the total would be over 320,000,000 gods.
