Istilah "mitologi" dapat berarti kajian tentang mitos (misalnya mitologi perbandingan), maupun sebuah himpunan atau koleksi mitos-mitos (misalnya mitologi Inka).[1] Dalam folkloristika, suatu mitos adalah kisah suci yang biasanya menjelaskan bagaimana dunia maupun manusia dapat terbentuk seperti sekarang ini,[2] meskipun, dalam pengertian yang sangat luas, istilah tersebut dapat mengacu kepada cerita tradisional.[3]

Mitologi terkait dekat dengan legenda maupun cerita rakyat. Mitologi dapat mencakup kisah penciptaan dunia sampai asal mula suatu bangsa. Tidak seperti mitologi, pada cerita rakyat, waktu dan tempat tidak spesifik dan ceritanya tidak dianggap sebagai kisah suci yang dipercaya kebenarannya. Sedangkan pada legenda, pelaku-pelakunya adalah manusia dan meskipun kejadiannya dianggap benar-benar terjadi, dapat mengandung kisah makhluk supranatural (dewa, setan, dsb.) dan kejadian luar biasa (kutukan, keajaiban, dsb.) seperti pada mitologi. Biasanya latar pada legenda adalah masa-masa pada saat manusia sudah ada dan dikaitkan dengan sejarah dan asal mula suatu tempat.
