** Odysseus spent a few years on an island shacked up with a minor goddess. ''Literature/TheOdyssey'' doesn't mention any children, but there's no such thing as a divinity that isn't Super Fertile. Later myths explore the lives of their many, many, many children.

A character that's not a fully supernatural being (such as a [[OurGodsAreGreater god]], [[OurAngelsAreDifferent angel]], [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demon]], [[OurSpiritsAreDifferent spirit in general]], [[EldritchAbomination abomination]], etc.), but has a touch of it or more in them. The character may be the [[HalfHumanHybrids offspring]][=/=][[HeinzHybrid descendant]] of supernatural creatures and mortals, or is part of a race that's inherently part-supernatural or in between. For that matter, [[{{Transhuman}} the character might have even become part-supernatural]] as a boon from the PowersThatBe or their own personal attempt to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. The reverse can also happen, as a fully supernatural being [[{{Depower}} Descends from a Higher Plane of Existence]] and winds up with a "mere" fraction of their former supernatural touch.

* The [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Demonspawn]] and [[OurGodsAreGreater Demigods]] of ''VideoGame/DungeonCrawl''. They can be created through magical experiments, [[HalfHumanHybrids breeding]] with demons and gods/angels, (un)holy pacts, or any number of other ways. The former are very versatile and have a wide range of (random, but usually powerful) abilities from their demonic mutations, but are weak against [[HolyHandGrenade evil-smiting powers]]. The latter [[TheAce have the highest base attributes in the game, and have a lot of HP and mana pools]], but they level slowly and can't worship a god, which is pretty bad, as a lot of powers and bonuses can only be gained through religion.

Demi-Gods are unique in that they can go back and forth between the mortal and spirit worlds at will, though Fluttercruel isn't aware of this.

** D&D also has Divine Rank 0 entities (normal beings have no rank at all). Such an entity isn't a god for most purposes (they don't grant spells), but they have many of the mechanical benefits of being considered divine (immortality, max HP, a host of immunities, some DR against non Epic weapons, resistances).

Such an entity isn't a god for most purposes (they don't grant spells), spells, with one very specific exception that requires special training and effort on the devotee's part[[note]]dragons, being dragons, have a high-requirement PrestigeClass, Dragon Ascendant, that gradually turns the dragon into a quasi-deity (a term for Divine Rank 0 entities). The feat Servant of the Dragon Ascendant allows a divine spellcaster to receive spells from worshipping a dragon that has become a quasi-deity via the prestige class[[/note]]), but they have many of the mechanical benefits of being considered divine (immortality, max HP, a host of immunities, some DR against non Epic weapons, resistances).

** Special mention must go to the original Master of the Straits from the first trilogy. His mother was a direct child of Elua (or one his companions) while his father was the renegade angel Rahab, thus making The Master of the Straits more divine than mortal
