-->-- '''Cher''', "Half Breed"

So, you just happen to be the child of that army guy who [[GoingNative went native]] and married TheChiefsDaughter? Or perhaps the reverse applies and dear mum left home and joined dad on the ancestral family homestead back in rural Smalltownington. This of course is assuming both your parents [[ParentalAbandonment are alive]] and love each other, (StarCrossedLovers have a tendency to have it rough), or you might be the product of [[ChildByRape less than consensual affairs.]] And then you were born.
Please note that in RealLife, the term half-breed is a highly offensive slur.

These tropes all relate to the concept of an half-breed:

* In ''SoraNoWoto'', it is implied that [[HeroicBastard Rio]] is of mixed heritage [[spoiler: since she lacks the PhenotypeStereotype looks of her blonde, green-eyed half-sister and her last names are Japanese/Slavic]]. Most probably a very common thing in Helvetia and no one seems to care.
* Urd from ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is half-demon on her mother's side. Off course, the only one the really seems to be affected by it is her as most goddesses are nice enough not to bring it up (or simply don't care) and most demons, well they don't really want to mess with the beloved daughter of the ruler of Hell herself.
* Blue from ''WolfsRain'' is a wolf-dog. Upon meeting Cheza, the dog side of her virtually disappears and she joins the other wolves.
* ''{{Area 88}}'' manga:
** Saki was the son of an Asranian prince and his Greek wife. Fortunately, Saki suffered no stigma in Asran on account of his mixed heritage.
** Not so for Josie, an orphan of mixed French and Japanese ethnicity. After her parents' deaths, her Japanese grandparents [[HalfBreedDiscrimination refused to take her in]] because they disapproved of her parents' marriage.
* Maka from ''SoulEater'' is a the daughter of a Technician and a Weapon. Being a Weapon is a genetic trait that Arachne created by mucking around with witch and human souls 800 years ago, so they aren't really a separate species.

* TheDCU:
** Supervillain Cheshire (Vietnamese/French), who basically went insane.
** Mongrel, a.k.a. Josh Xan, was half-Vietnamese as well. He died in ''InfiniteCrisis''.
* In ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'', the platinum dragon D'bra is actually a hybrid between two differing tribes of dragons, platinum on her mother's side and iron on her father's. This is notable as full dragons are rare enough between two partners of the same tribe (most eggs hatch into less drakes or wyrms), and hybrids are thus extremely powerful. However, not only are they extremely rare (six have been recorded in the entirety of draconic history), but also card carrying demonstrations that WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity. D'bra's own explosive temper is a considerable worry to the other dragons who are afraid of her snapping like all the others.

* Elvis Presley plays a man with a white father and an Indian mother in ''FlamingStar''.
* In ''IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', one of the treasure hunters in the prologue is credited as [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname "Half Breed"]].

[[folder:Literature]]
* Rehv, from the ''BlackDaggerBrotherhood'' series, is half-vampire and half-sympath.
* Oliza in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' KieshaRa series is a half-snake shapeshifter, half-hawk shapeshifter. She has the forms of both a hawk, a cobra, and a combined form referred to as a wyvern. Her cousin, [[spoiler: Hai]], is half-falcon and half-cobra and suffers from unstable magic that allows her to see several possible timelines (making her a WaifProphet) but leaving her starkly out of touch with reality. Oliza and [[spoiler: Hai]] are also both example of AllGenesAreCodominant
* In GrahamMcNeill's ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' ''Literature/{{Ultramarines}}'' novel ''Black Sun Dead Sky'', Honsou is termed a half-breed. In ''Storm of Iron'', it is revealed that this is because he has gene-seed stolen from Imperial sources as well as the Chaos ones; the Warmaster exploits this to develop [[DividedWeFall rivalries]].
* A number of characters in Creator/JRRTolkien's ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' are mixtures: Lúthien (half Elf, half [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Maia]]), her son Dior (half Human, 1/4 Elf, 1/4 Maia), Eärendil (half Elf, half Human) and their various HeinzHybrid descendants (Elwing, Elros, Elrond, Aragorn, etc.). All seem to be well loved and respected by both sides of their respective families.
* Creator/HPLovecraft has the Whateley Twins, Wilbur and [[EldritchAbomination OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?!]]
* The Ysabel Kid, from ''The Floating Outfit'' novels of JTEdson, is half Kentucky Irish, a quarter Commanche, and a quarter French-Canadian.
* The Ewu in ''Literature/WhoFearsDeath'', being born from the union of Okeke and Nuru people. Looking surprisingly like neither tribe, the Ewu are sand-colored, skin and hair, with light eyes, like albino Africans.
* Some totally non-human examples from ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'':
** Jara Hamee and his daughter Toby (named for Tobias) are descended from an Andalite female who married a Hork-Bajir, though, again, she used morphing technology to actually become a Hork-Bajir.
** The Ellimist had children while living among the Andalites in a genetically engineered body millions of years ago, so a great deal, if not the entirety, of modern Andalites should be his descendants. Which means [[spoiler:Tobias]] and the Hamee family are his descendants, too. And indeed, it is implied the modern Andalites inherit their built-in TranslatorMicrobes (i.e. "thought-speak") from his artificial body. The primitive Andalites he lived amongst had only sign language.
* Terry Brooks' ''MagicKingdomOfLandover'' series has Willow, born of two different kinds of faerie, whose status complicates both her relationship to Ben Holiday, and later their child's gestation and birth -- as the child of a wood nymph, she has to spend part of the time as a tree.
* There are a few examples of hybrids in Terry Brooks' ''{{Shannara}}'' books (the Urda, for example, are Troll/Gnome hybrids). Justified, in one sense, by the fact that dwarves, gnomes, and trolls are simply different subspecies of human mutated by the apocalypse. Less explicable is how humans can interbreed with elves, who are just fae ''evolved'' into humanoids...

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' Paige is a half-witch, half-whitelighter. She gains whitelighter powers such as orbing and healing without having to actually die though she has to learn how to use them while whitelighters know them automatically. Wyatt and Chris are also the same though stronger because their mother is a Charmed One.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Newspaper Comics]]
* The titular hero of ''{{Latigo}}'', by Stan Lynde, was the son of an Irish father and Native American mother.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Theatre]]
* [[WomanScorned Azuri]] in ''TheDesertSong''.
* One of the love plots in the musical ''South Pacific'' (also a film).
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* This trope is played up in the video game ''Red Dead Revolver'' with Red, the main character, being the offspring of a white settler and a Native American.
* Connor, the main character in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIII'', has a similar background.
* The ''FinalFantasy'' series falls into this:
** In ''FinalFantasyV'' Bartz is fully human, but his parents hail from different halves of the world that [[spoiler:existed as separate planets]] for centuries.
** In ''Videogame/FinalFantasyX'', Yuna is the daughter of a normal human and an Al-Bhed, a human ethnicity distinguished by their green eyes and spiral irises. The mixture manifested itself as Yuna's MismatchedEyes.
* In ''TheElderScrolls'', a book called "Notes on Racial Phylogeny" states that children of interracial unions typically resemble the mother more, with some traits from the father still persisting. In Oblivion, the Gray Prince, a champion gladiator is part human, part orc[[hottip:*:the (human) father was also a vampire, but just what that had for consequences for the Gray Prince is uncertain, as he is both the only known case of human/orc interbreeding and vampire/living interbreeding]]. The entire race of Bretons descend from half-breeds between nedes (ancestral race of men) and Aldmer (ancestral race of elves), when the Elves took concubines. The Bretons are considered a race of men, but their elven ancestry manifests as having the highest racial aptitude for magic of all men races. A few aristocratic Breton lineages still retain a slight point to their ears.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Banquo of ''GoodbyeChains''. His character profile proudly describes him as "half-Mexican and half-Swedish, and also a colossal dick." He was the result of a one-night stand between an actress and a mestizo Mexican man, and faces quite a bit of racism because of his background. His DistaffCounterpart and part time lover, Cordelia, is half-Ute, but there are certainly no parallels between them and how they treat their companions, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial no siree]].

* A non human example, Blue from ''WolfsRain'' is a wolf-dog. Upon meeting Cheza, the dog side of her virtually disappears and she joins the other wolves.
* In the Devil May Cry Animated Series, this is blatantly stated by Bradley to Dante. This is highly uncommon because demons tend to enjoy tormenting and killing humans. However, Dante's father was a demon who [[RebelLeader rebelled against the demon emperor]] and sided with humans. Afterwards, he ruled the human world and had two twin sons, Dante and Vergil, before disappearing.

* The na'kyrim of Creator/HPLovecraft has the [[TheGodlessWorldTrilogy Godless World]]. Also an example of HalfHumanHybrid.

Whateley Twins]] Twins, Wilbur and [[EldritchAbomination OH MY FUCKING GOD WHAT THE HELL IS THAT?]]

* The Ysabel Kid, from ''The Floating Outfit'' novels of JTEdson, is half Kentucky Irish, a quarter Commanche Commanche, and a quarter French-Canadian.



* In an episode of ''Series/{{Star Trek|The Original Series}}'', Kirk, in a successful attempt to provoke Spock to anger calls him a "mutinous, disloyal, compterized half-breed".

* ''FinalFantasy'' likes this trope.
** ''FinalFantasyIV'', Cecil and [[spoiler:his brother Golbez]] are half-human and half-Lunarian. They're the same as regular humans mostly, but Cecil doesn't know of his heritage for most of the game, while [[spoiler:Golbez]] and Fusoya are both damn powerful mages.
** ''FinalFantasyV'', Bartz is fully human, but his parents hail from different halves of the world that [[spoiler:existed as separate planets]] for centuries.
** ''FinalFantasyVI'', [[spoiler:Terra]] is half-human and half-Esper. Mostly manifests as occasionally losing control of her powers and being controlled by a SuperpoweredEvilSide, as well as the power to use magic innately.
** ''FinalFantasyVII'', Aerith is half-human and half-Cetra. She's mostly normal aside from the fact she [[HearingVoices hears the planet speak to her]], and can use magic without Materia.
** ''FinalFantasyX'', Yuna is the daughter of a human and an Al-Bhed, an ethnicity distinguished by their green eyes and spiral irises. The mixture manifested itself as Yuna's MismatchedEyes.
* Asellus of ''SaGaFrontier'' is half-human, half-mystic. Her case is unique: she was originally a normal human until the ruler of the mystics ran her over with a carriage. He gave her a [[BloodMagic blood transfusion]], and she became a hybrid as a result. Humans generally fear and hate the mystics due to their magic and oppressive nature (as noted when Asellus tries to visit her aunt), but despite what [[AllThereInTheManual guides]] tell you, the mystics, while somewhat mocking, mostly accept her. [[spoiler:Canonically, she remains half-mystic, but the game has three endings that can either have her remain that way or become fully human/fully mystic]]. Asellus, as a half-breed, can use both a limited movepool of magic and a bunch of human techniques.
* In TheElderScrolls, a book called "Notes on Racial Phylogeny" states that children of interracial unions typically resemble the mother more, with some traits from the father still persisting. In Oblivion, the Gray Prince, a champion gladiator is part human, part orc[[hottip:*:the (human) father was also a vampire, but just what that had for consequences for the Gray Prince is uncertain, as he is both the only known case of human/orc interbreeding and vampire/living interbreeding]]. The entire race of Bretons descend from half-breeds between nedes (ancestral race of men) and Aldmer (ancestral race of elves), when the Elves took concubines. The Bretons are considered a race of men, but their elven ancestry manifests as having the highest racial aptitude for magic of all men races. A few aristocratic Breton lineages still retain a slight point to their ears.
