* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'': [[spoiler: Ymir Fritz, the ancestress of the Eldian people and first person to possess the power of the Titans. The origins of her powers have been lost to history, with most either believing she made a DealWithTheDevil or gained a divine blessing. Kruger offers another theory, suggesting she was merely a girl that stumbled upon some sort of meta-physical "source of creation" by accident. After her death, her powers were divided to create the Nine Titans and used to create mindless Titans as tools for the "people of Ymir"]].

** [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Were-creatures]], also referred to in-universe as Lycanthropes, [[note]]Yes, this should ''technically'' only refer to werewolves, as "lycan" comes from the Greek word for "wolf", however it is frequently used to refer to all were-creatures[[/note]] similarly are a creation of Hircine, the Daedric Prince of [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame the Hunt]]. He sees them as the embodiment of the spirit of the hunt, and they serve him in life as mortal agents and in death as the "hounds" of his Hunting Grounds realm. Unlike Molag Bal toward most vampires, Hircine maintains an active role in his creations existence, as he has been known to personally enhance favored Lycanthropes with increased abilities and rewards some with items of power, such as the Ring of Hircine, which allows a Lycanthrope to control his or her transformations. Hircine has even been approached or summoned by packs of [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]] to appoint a pack leader, thus serving as a advisor and an important figure among Lycanthropes.

** The [[ALoadOfBull Minotaur]] race is believed to [[DivineDate descend from the union]] between St. Alessia (the "Slave Queen" who led the Alessian SlaveRevolt against their [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleid]] masters) and Morihaus, the [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Aedric demi-god]] "winged man-bull" sent by the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] to aid Alessia. [[EternalHero Pelinal Whitestrake]], Alessia's "champion" and Morihaus' divine "uncle," specifically warned Morihaus against this relationship, believing that they would "beget more monsters on this earth."

** Pictured above is Davros, creator of the Daleks. He isn't a Dalek himself, but with his Dalek-esque life support machine and OmnicidalManiac tendencies, he's halfway there.

* In ''Manga/SeraphOfTheEnd'', the entire vampire race is descended from a group of obscenely powerful "Progenitors". By the time the series began, the First Progenitor (aka the first and the most powerful vampire) is said to [[spoiler: disappeared several centuries ago after siring Second to Fifth Progenitors, who in turn sired Sixth to Twentieth Progenitors]]. The Twentieth (weakest) Progenitors are still [[OneManArmy One Man Army]], whose physical abilities can't be matched by any human fighters, even those armed with the most powerful demon weapons. Therefore, they have to resort to teamwork and tactics in order to defeat lower-ranking Progenitors. Fighting higher-ranking ones is practically suicidal in most cases.
