** Very early fluff hinted the [[CanonSue Ultramarines]] have an human/Eldar hybrid among their number, though this is somewhat undermined by that same fluff also stating that Eldar have, [[YouFailBiologyForever among other horrendous biological impossibilities]], zero body fat (but for some reason the females still have rather prominent breasts) and [[BizarreAlienBiology TRIPLE HELIX DNA]]. Like most things from the early fluff, this has been stricken from the collective fandom consciousness.

** One straight example however is the fanfic ''Love Can Bloom'' which deals with the Eldar Farseer Taldeer of Ultwhe and her lover, a Vindicare Assasin designated LIIVI who spared her life and then got involved with her. Later they have a child named Lofn. As of ''TabletopGame/DarkHeresy'', the story is canon.

** If it exists and can have sex, then some Exalted has had sex with it. The Lunars above all, that's how Beastmen came to be. If it makes a difference, the Lunars have the ability and usually the inclination to ask animals first, and shapeshift into the same species. Beastmen, for the record, are usually conceived when a Lunar and a human ''or'' a Lunar and an animal mate in a [[RealityIsOutToLunch Wyld bordermarch]]... with [[{{Squick}} the Lunar in a form different from their mate]]. (Geoff C. Grabowski once defended the Lunars' predilections by pointing them to ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' with the words "--- This Wolf Or The Earth Will Die". (Direct quote.))

''[[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Night Horrors: Wicked Dead]]'' introduces the [[TabletopGame/NewWorldOfDarkness nWoD]] take on the {{Dhampyr}}, which is born when a human and a vampire engage in carnal relationships backed by magic or a massive amount of emotional focus -- [[ThePowerOfLove a deep sincere love]] is mentioned as the most common, and most tragic, cause of their creation. And because the laws of nature are already being broken by their creation, ''any'' combination of a vampire/human pairing can produce them. [[HomosexualReproduction Even two men or two women]]. And when a heterosexual couple are the parents, [[MisterSeahorse the male can end up carrying the baby instead of the female]] -- this is (fortunately) usually only caused by magic and tends to occur when it's a male vampire/female human couple. Male humans can carry the dhampyr safely... but [[DeathByChildbirth delivery is another matter]].\\

** Werewolves only hit lycanthrope status at puberty (though no one would ever consider trying to have sex with a werewolf in its [[UnstoppableRage War-Form]]...unless they were pretty much invincible or into self-snuff and that got creepy really fast). In ''TabletopGame/WerewolfTheApocalypse'' all the shapeshifters have families, including animal and in most cases also human Kinfolk who are, in almost all ways, entirely normal. Most shapeshifter-shapeshifter pairings inevitably produce either a sterile and deformed Metis or no child at all, and even the Changing Breeds with fertile "Metis" can never produce enough to maintain their population without breeding with humans and their animal species. (Some Garou have speculated that Gaia designed them that way deliberately, to prevent them from ignoring the people they should be protecting.)\\

* ''TabletopGame/{{Ironclaw}}'' only hints at the possibility of interspecies romances in the main book. However the main character of the novel ''Scars'' is the daughter of a grey fox noble and a red fox servant, and a raccoon has an unrequited crush on her. And the Book of Jade supplement has a legend of an ill-fated romance between a dragon prince and a peasant vixen, the dragon was killed by his jealous brother and the vixen turned herself into a dragon through force of will to avenge him, then she laid nine eggs and her sons developed dragon magic that gradually makes the user more draconic.

* Although "romance" wasn't involved, the earliest edition of ''TabletopGame/WarhammerFantasyRoleplay'' had half-orcs in it, as well as a race called the fimir, who consisted of sterile spellcasting females and fertile males, and thusly kidnapped human women to propagate themselves. Strangely, though most elements of that time (like half-orcs and gnomes) have been consigned to the dustbin of RetCon, fimir get an oblique mention in the Sigmar trilogy from Black Library.

* Averted in TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} as all species in 40k are [[FantasticRacism exceedingly xenophobic]] and view all others as lower than animals, thus making even the idea of interspecies romance horrifying and [[KillItWithFire purge-worthy]]. However, both the Dark Eldar and the followers of the [[ReligionOfEvil Chaos God]] [[CosmicHorror Slaanesh]] do induldge in gratuitous interspecies rape, but that's primarily because their MO involves raping anything that moves.
** Or anything that ''doesn't'' move. And if it was moving and then it stopped.
** Fans of the Imperium of Man respond to this trope with "Fucking Xenos?!? Those fucking Xenos!"
** It is hinted in some of the older fluff, however, that the [[MarySue Ultramarines]] do have a human/Eldar hybrid among their number, though this is somewhat undermined by the fact that the same fluff also states that Eldar have, [[YouFailBiologyForever among other horrendous biological impossibilities]], zero body fat (but for some reason the females still have rather prominent breasts) and [[BizarreAlienBiology TRIPLE HELIX DNA.]]
** Most, if not all, of the older fluff is generally disregarded by the producers themselves (though fans, naturally, have a tendency to latch onto elements they like)... understandably, seeing as how the oldest fluff includes such disasters as Squats (drunken space dwarves who drove around on motorized tricycles), the Sensei (immortal, sterile children of the God-Emperor, who he didn't even know existed) and the Illuminati (a conspiracy of humans who were possessed by daemons, then managed to force them out and become untouchable super-psykers as a result).
*** The Illuminati were the human version of the eldar Harlequins, which are still around. Eldar are much more powerful psykers compared to humans, but the idea is not far-fetched.
*** Actually, there is a monster (or race of monsters) in 40K devoted to this trope. Genestealers are a sub-species of Tyranids that focus on infilitrating target populations. They do this by changing a target's DNA slightly; this makes the target absolutly devoted to the Genestealer and Tyranids in general, and horny. Any child of the targeted creature (known as a Brood Brother) is less of the parent race and more Tyranid, until by the fourth generation Brood Brothers (well, Sisters) give birth to purestrain Genestealers.

Even though Prometheans are sterile, it may happen occasionally that one finds themselves a parent. These children are known as Scions, and they're both able to sense when a Promethean draws near and unaffected by Disquiet.
