* ''{{ComicBook/Fables}}'': Bigby thinks of himself as a wolf, but he actually had a wolf for a mother and the North Wind for the father. Meanwhile, Snow White is a human-style Fable who has six [[ItMakesSenseinContext (seven, really)]] kids with Bigby.
* It is revealed in ''ComicBook/{{X-Factor}}'' that, as has been widely-speculated for years, [[spoiler: Shatterstar really is the biological son of Dazzler and Longshot. However, in a twisted StableTimeLoop scenario, Longshot in turn was [[ArtificialHuman created]] using genes taken from Shatterstar when he got [[TimeTravel blasted into the past]], thus in a sense [[MyOwnGrampa making him his own father's "father"]]]].
* From ''ComicBook/{{The Sandman}}'': Desire is revealed to be the grandfather of recurring character Rose Walker, having fathered her mother while her grandmother was in a coma. So more of a case of 3/4 human hybrid. Rose, her mother and younger brother don't seem to have any explicit powers from their supernatural heritage other than looking young for their ages and being considered a bit more attractive than the average person. Interestingly, the titular character isn't shown to have any half-human offspring, but given Desire's penchant for making him fall in love it wouldn't be surprising.

* ''CrucibleMassEffect'' has the turian-human hybrids thanks to the effect of the Crucible at the end of the Reaper War. They are mainly turian-like in appearance but with human 5-fingered hands and ape-like feet. They also have both turian strength and human flexibility and all are born biotics. In short, they have all the best traits of their parents' species that have made them the top dogs on their respective homeworlds and thus are viewed as perfect war machines that [[WoobieSpecies most people want to capture and enslave]].
* Due to a lot of CanonWelding, both the [[SuperSoldier Mutant Soldiers]] from GodzillaFinalWars and Psychics from the Heisei era in ''FanFic/TheBridge'' and its spin off ''Humanity's Stand'' were retconned into hybrids of humans and Mysterian aliens from the Showa era.

* An interesting case in a few ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'' fanfics, where hybrids rarely come from actual breeding. Usually it's the result of the main characters entering another universe, and in the process, their two species getting mixed into a singular one. This does make sense, considering the Trolls' BizarreAlienBiology.

* ConspiracyTheorist Creator/DavidIcke claims in his book ''The Biggest Secret'' that the world is secretly ruled by [[TheReptilians reptilian aliens]] who can take human shape and interbreed with humans.
** Specifically, ''12-foot tall specimens that drink human blood''. Apparently, the Jewish Anti-Defamation League got annoyed, and cited the whole ''Elder Protocols'' schtick to suggest that when talking about reptilians, he meant Jews. [[spoiler:Those that know him suggest that when he talks about reptilians, he means it.]]
** Sounds like he read a little too much Creator/RobertEHoward pulp novels. 'King {{Literature/Kull}}'' has the same plot points.
* There was a Russian scientist in the early 20th century who attempted to create a Humanzee, but apparently none of his experiments panned out & his funding was eventually cut.
** Interesting that in all accounts of trying to inseminate human women with ape sperm, the ape always happen to die shortly before the scheduled date.
** For the curious, said scientist was [[http://www.cracked.com/article_17039_9-real-life-mad-scientists.html Ilya Ivanovich Ivanov]] (#5 on the list, bottom of the first page). Apparently, the story gets even stranger.
** [[http://skeptoid.com/episodes/4219 Thoroughly examined here.]] Ivanov can be conservatively described as having been a completely insane crackpot, but stories of surviving ''Humanzee'' creations are the accounts of conspiracy theories with no evidence behind them and most of what we know of biology arguing for its near impossibility.
** Actually, in 1977, it was proven that human sperm could penetrate the outer membranes of a Gibbon egg. Gibbons, also called Hylobatidae or Lesser Apes, branch off from the Hominoidea family alongside Hominids, or Great Apes. This group includes Chimps, Gorillas, Orangutans, Bonobos, and Humans. The tests were repeated with eggs from non-Hominoidea species, like Baboons and Rhesus monkeys, which the sperm did not attempt to fertilize. While purely theoretical at this point, it suggests interbreeding between these groups could be possible.
* Subverted with Oliver, a wild-born chimpanzee raised in a human household. Because of his bald features and preference for bipedal walking, he was long suspected to be a human/chimp hybrid, but [=DNA=] tests eventually determined that he's a chimpanzee from a wild population with slightly less fur and smaller heads than most. Walking upright is a behavior he learned by copying humans.
** Just to clinch the argument, he ended up with crippling arthritis in his back and feet from walking upright, and had to spend his twilight years knuckle walking like a normal chimp. He just wasn't built for that stunt, and it wore his body down like ballet wears down a ballet dancer.
* State Representative William "Tracy" Arnold R-MS attempted to introduce House Bill 819, the Protection of the Human Person Act, to [[DefiedTrope prevent this trope]]. The response from anyone in Congress who actually knew anything about science amounted to "You're trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist."
** Apart from human+animal sperm+egg nonsense, it broadly outlaws genetically engineered embryos and intelligent nonhumans.
* Most people from northern Europe can trace up to 4% of their DNA to neandrathals, and it is believed that there was interbreeding in the past. So technically, an entire population of HalfHumanHybrid people did actually exist in the past, crossing back into the human population to dilute the genes.
** Not that that amounts to much. Humans are still 99.9% identical genetically when you get right down to it, and since Neanderthals were virtually identical to humans anyway, most of that DNA was identical to the DNA we already had just came from a different source. The few new genes we got from Neanderthals still fall into that one-tenth of a percent that makes us distinct.
*** Or rather, Neanderthals ''were'' humans, just a separate subspecies from the Cro-Magnons who were the first "modern" humans. The ancestors of Neanderthals were the first humans to leave Africa, while the Cro-Magnons evolved and left Africa later. Interbreeding was apparently relatively common when they met, as all humans of non-African descent today have at least some Neanderthal DNA.

* A Spider-Man story from [[JMSSpiderMan J.M.S.'s] run claims that [[Comicbook/{{Loki}} Loki]] actually has quite a few half-mortal children running around the world, most of whom have no idea he is their father. Unsurprisingly, he is a deadbeat dad, but somewhat uncharacteristically, he does care about their welfare. When a supernatural entity targets one of his daughters, he enlists Spider-Man's aid in rescuing her. Spidey goes along with it because, after all, he would have tried to help this innocent young woman being attacked by a monster anyway.
