鲤冈鲃 (Lǐ Gang Bā): Ridged carp-barbel

This 2010 addition to China’s pantheon of mythical creatures is based on the "my father is Li Gang" incident.

The phrase, “Li Gang is my father” sounds similar to the fictional “ridged carp-barbel” fish. According to a mock encyclopedia article [zh], the ridged carp-barbel is aggressive and enjoys ramming things with its blunt face. It is a near relative of the horse of deception.
