* Arguably the basis for the {{Nephilim}} in ''Literature/HandOfMercy'' though interestingly the human-angel hybrids don't get any powers or advantages. Instead, they get horrific bone deformities, since the bones of angels are light as chalk in order to aid flight.
* And presumably the basis of the {{Nephilim}} in Creator/MadeleineLEngle's ''Literature/ManyWaters''.

* The Creator/MercedesLackey song "Mis-Conception" is about a...somewhat drastic...instance of this.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has the example of Harry Potter, who's half Asgardian. Specifically, James Potter was Thor, on a first run at the humility thing. It worked very well until, suddenly, it didn't. Unusually, though, Harry shows little sign of inheriting his father's powers; a temporary PlotRelevantAgeUp shows that he will eventually inherit the SuperStrength and {{Flight}} (though he leans more towards PlayingWithFire than ShockAndAwe), but by the sequel, his paternal inheritance is mostly limited to a bit more raw magical power and a physique roughly on par with the likes of [[SuperSoldier Captain America]]. It's suggested that he's a relatively slow developer in this regard because his father was [[BroughtDownToNormal human]] when Harry was conceived. However, since his mother's side has power to spare, what with Lily being Jean Grey's first cousin once removed, and properly kicks in around chapter 50, he doesn't miss out on much.
** And then there's [[spoiler: Diana]], who's technically a demigoddess, being the daughter of [[spoiler: Hercules and Hippolyta.]]

* Jalal Stormbringer from the ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersSeries'' series is the son of a gold dragon and a human woman. While he has no biological children, his ward Judy is also half-dragon. (The narrative claims this is a more common practice among dragons than mating with another dragon. They tend to be incredibly rare on Earth, and see other members of their species as rivals, so much so that two of them within a hundred miles of each other is a war waiting to happen.)

See {{Dhampyr}} for half vampire/half human hybrids. Also see {{Catgirl}} and UnusualEars for examples of PettingZooPeople, cute animal girls that are usually treated as a separate race rather than actually having an animal somewhere in their ancestry. [[BeastMan Beast Folk]] are seldom so cuddly, what with the PointyEars, [[FangsAreEvil Fangs of Evil]], and claws. In mythology and folklore, this is known as a "liminal being," like Merlin or centaurs.

* Many ''{{Superman}}'' stories show a future child with Lois Lane, up to and including a human/Kryptonian Superman Dynasty lasting [[SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale tens of thousands of years]]. However, many post-Crisis stories portrayed a human/kryptonian hybrid as impossible. The existence of Superboy proves that at least [[CloningBlues artificially created]] hybrids are definitely possible, although the various [[CloneDegradation health problems]] he's had over the years show that hybrids aren't the most stable.

* From ''ComicBook/TheSandman'': 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.

* 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.
