If a graph has an asymptote, does that mean it's always going to be a hyperbola?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

Well, I started to think of y=tan(x) and y=cot(x). I believe they would be called trigonometric circular functions as they repeat, but are they still considered hyperbolas because they have asymptotes?
