 Atlantis Rising: the TITANS & early Greek Mythology
To the Greeks, mythology was literally a part of their history; few ever doubted that there was truth behind the account of the Trojan War in the Iliad and Odyssey.
Mythology tells us that when the Titans were defeated by Saturn they retreated into the interior of Spain; Jupiter followed them up, and beat them for the last time near Tartessus, and thus terminated a ten-years' war.
The entire Greek mythology is the recollection, by a degenerate race, of a vast, mighty, and highly civilized empire, which in a remote past covered large parts of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America.

 Tethys - Monster of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon Episode 012
In addition, Tethys appears to have long had unrequited feelings for the Dark General known as Jadeite and apparently devoted much of her energy, time, and effort towards activities she hoped would gain her his favor, undeterred in her actions by either his shabby treatment or his cold and distant attitude towards her.
Among these were the ability to create whirlpools of various sizes that she could use to form mystical gateways in order to travel from place to place or to generate giant snakelike columns of water capable of striking with enough concussive force to punch through the steel hull of a ship.
In addition, Tethys' seawater-based powers also allowed her to generate and maintain highly convincing and lifelike illusions, from giving her water monsters the semblance of being human to making a rusting hulk of a ship appear to be luxury liner.

 Enfolded in the Sea
The sons of Tethys and Oceanus included the sea-deities Phorkys, Nereus and Thaumas, "Sea Wonder." Like Proteus, whose parents were not named in myth, Phorkys and Nereus had the power to change shape, which Nereus used in wrestling the hero Hercules.
Of Tethys and Oceanus's daughters the Oceanids, Callirhoe and Amphiro were goddesses of the sea's flux; Plexaura and Galaxaura, of wind and calm; Thoe and Okyrhoe, of speed and mobility; Petraia of the rocks, Calypso of the sheltering cave, Prymno of the ship's stern.
As part of their reverie on the ocean, Greek poets named each Nereid: names such as Glauke, "the sea-green"; Cymothoe "the wave-swift"; Lysianassa, "the redeeming mistress"; Menippe, "the courageous mare." Amphitrite, whose hand in marriage conferred sea-sovereignty on Poseidon, is called both a Nereid and an Oceanid.
