Compare FusionDance and TwoBeingsOneBody, which is when two characters are combined. Mix-and-Match Critters may be the result of HotSkittyOnWailordAction. If both creatures are already mythological/magical/whatever and get mixed, they have a newborn HybridMonster and if mundane they can end up with a {{Patchwork Kid|s}}. Application of the principle to humans may count as BioAugmentation, see also MixAndMatchMan.

** It's also unclear if the billy-bumbler is an actual Mix-and-Match Critters, as opposed to a fictional animal that happens to share a few traits with those RealLife animals.

** Literature/TheElricSaga also introduces the Armies of Chaos. Its mooks might have ''begun'' as human but as Chaos transforms them, they degenerate into monstrous part-human part-animal hybrids according to their natures. [[note]]this is reflected in the ''Hawkmoon'' series where the evil army of GranBretan, the local Chaos- Army, does not physically transform - but chooses to wear animal or bird masks/helmets according to their Legion affiliations.[[/note]]

** There was also a very short-lived line of stuffed toys by Remco based upon these characters, which identified these hybrid creatures as "Firffels". Coincidentally - or not - they arrived around the same time the Wuzzles toy line was launched ([[http://babbletrish.blogspot.com/2009/07/highly-dubious-andor-forgotten-80s-toys.html this blog post]] has a few pictures and was written by someone who [[AdaptationDisplacement had no idea]] they were based on a book).

* Creator/JackChalker's ''Literature/WellWorld'' is filled to the brim with semi-mythological mix-and-match critters, justified as the result of lazy alien species designers cribbing each others' work. Meanwhile, the mix-and-match critters from mythology are justified as legends and "racial memories" stemming from our own species' creation on the Well World.
