Disney that's why. Mermaids are more than Ariel, but if you bring them up what's everyone going to think of?

If a video game needs to sell more than a million copies to break even it has problems.

The same reason people thin MLP when thinking of unicorns. A certain depiction became so popular that the original depiction became lost.

I always think of a book I read in my childhood that has nothing to do with that show.

My guess, though, is that the myth of fairies/faeries are commonly aimed towards the younger female generation. The lore was mangled and mutilated over time, and as such, people now think of faeries as tiny female creatures.

I still think mischievous imps.
