* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' is half-human, half-Gem. At first, the human half mostly just seems to be inconvenient for him, if not ''life-threatening''; Steven isn't as strong or fast as other Gems, less able to control his powers, and isn't TheNeedless (though he ''is'' stronger and more durable than a normal human). However, a couple episodes suggests that his abilities will grow to become stronger than even his mother's were, and [[spoiler: the Season 1 finale show one ''vital'' benefit to having an organic body: Steven is immune to advanced Gem technology that can instantly destroy the body of a regular gem]]. "Alone Together" reveals another ability he has that the other Gems lack: [[spoiler:the ability to fuse with humans.]] Probably the best thing about being a human/Gem hybrid, however, is that since he was raised among both, he's the only person in the world who [[TheHeart can ''easily'' empathise with and understand both sides...]]

Blame PowersAsPrograms or LegoGenetics, but any power possessed, even latently, by a parent, will always be passed on to their offspring, and the presence of a different strain on the other side of the family will only serve to amplify it. This is especially true if the powers are complimentary in some way, but even if they are opposite: if someone with [[PlayingWithFire fire powers]] marries AnIcePerson, their kid may well have both sets or even an amalgamated access to PureEnergy, a living YinYangBomb.

* According to an anecdote told variously about Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw and Isadora Duncan/Sandra Bernhardt, AlbertEinstein and MarilynMonroe, etc., the woman says to the man, "You are the greatest brain in the world and I have the most beautiful body, so we ought to produce the most perfect child." He responds, "What if the child inherits my beauty and your brains?"

Added DiffLines:

* In the second ''Literature/ApprenticeAdept'' triogy, Flach is half-human/half-unicorn (Unicorns in this universe being {{Voluntary Shapeshifter}}s who can take human form). The increased magical potential from his human father gives him shapeshifting abilities above and beyond any other unicorn's. Most unicorns take years to master one (usually, but not always, human) or two alternate forms. We see five year-old Flach use three (human, vampire bat, wolf) at an age where most unicorn foals haven't even tried one yet.

* In ''Literature/Mistborn'', the fusion of Allomancy and Feruchemy creates an effect called Compounding, where a person who can use both arts with the same metal can [[spoiler:store up a resource like health or age with Feruchemy, then use Allomancy to vastly increase the amount of that resource is available, effectively resulting in effects like an unlimited HealingFactor or eternal youth]].

** Ichigo is the offspring of a human and a shinigami. Thanks to the quirks of his parentage, he therefore possesses all the known power types in hisw world. Ginjou does claim Ichigo is not the first human/shinigami offspring to exist. [[spoiler: His mother was am Echt Quincy whose soul was affected forever by one of Aizen's Hollow experiments, and to save her life, his father underwent a procedure to change him from a pure shinigami into a shinigami/human hybrid. As such, Ichigo was born with Quincy, Hollow, Human (Fullbringer) and Shinigami power, all of which have awakened at different speeds throughout the events.]]

** When a person survives a hollow attack, they are left with a residual taint of the hollow's powers in their body. This is then passed on to an unborn child via the mother. The child is permanently affected by this, resulting in the birth of a fullbringer: a human being with hollow-originated powers and the ability to manipulate the souls of matter (whether living or inanimate) to achieve all sorts of power effects and outcomes.
** This is also the premise behind Visoreds and Arrancar. The former are Shinigami who have acquired Hollow powers through artificial means, while the latters are Hollows who have broken their Masks in order to regain Human forms and Shinigami-like power.

* Ligers, the offspring of a male lion and female tiger. They are massive due to a defective growth inhibitor (up to 900lbs, compared to a 400lb tiger) and much more powerful than either parent. That said, such size might work against them were they ever wild, since they're be slower and have to eat more. Interestingly, it doesn't work the same way with tigons, where the parents are reversed.
