Since MostWritersAreHuman, most humanoid inter-species crossbreeds are {{Half Human Hybrid}}s. However, sometimes this is averted, and a hybrid has no ''Homo sapiens'' in their family tree at all.

Like its sibling trope, it may lead to {{Uneven Hybrid}}s or {{Heinz Hybrid}}s if the person in question isn't a dead-end of the family tree.

[[folder: Cross-Media]]
* Garona Halforcen from ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' (but not [=WoW=]) was originally vaguely depicted as half-Orc and half something unknown (often thought to be Human), but the comic reveals that she is really [[spoiler: half-Orc and half-Draenei]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Anime and Manga]]
* The Monstrels of the RosarioToVampire manga are hybrids of two monsters, and are therefore the most common type of monster. Ability-wise, they can have anything from [[BladeBelowTheShoulder limb weapons]] to a hypnotic serum that they can inject.
* Urd of Manga/AhMyGoddess is half-god, half-demon. In fact, her parents are the series' versions of {{God}} and {{Satan}}.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Comic Books]]
* ''ElfQuest'' has two half elves.
** Timmorn Yellow-Eyes was the son of a shape-shifted High One (elf) and a wolf. The conflicting instincts of "immortal shapeshifter" and "mortal being with no concept of past or future" in his heritage nearly drove him mad as seen in [[http://www.elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/TC/TC01/DisplayTC01.html this story]]. By extension his descendants the Wolfriders all have some wolf ancestry as well.
** Two-Edge was half elf and half troll. [[spoiler:His mother Winnowill systematically broke his mind, to the point that he was so conflicted about his species that he staged a war between elves and trolls to decide it.]]
* Marvel Comics has [[YoungAvengers Hulkling]]. He's the child of [[{{Captain Mar-vell}} Captain Marvel]] (a Kree) and a Skrull princess.
* Also from Marvel, Troll of the {{Thunderbolts}}, who's half-troll and half-Asgardian.
* Marvel's {{Thor}} is actually a hybrid of two different species of gods. He's half-Elder God on his mother Gaea's side. This is the reason he's so much stronger than the other Asgardians.
** Technically, Thor is a combination of 3 species. His mother is an elder goddess, but Odin is half Frost Giant on his mother's side. That makes him a quarter Asgardian, quarter Frost Giant and half Elder God.

[[folder:Film]]
* Lieutenant Saavik, first appearing in ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', is half-Vulcan, half-Romulan, with her heritage betrayed by longer, more upswept eyebrows than usual for a Vulcan. This isn't as unreasonable as [[NoBiochemicalBarriers most cases of the trope]], seeing as how the Romulans are a [[HumanSubspecies Vulcan subspecies]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Literature]]
* ''Literature/SymphonyOfAges'' has Achmed (Dhracian/Firbolg, the product of a rape) and Grunthor (Firbolg/Bengard).
* Lúthien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' was half-Elven and half-Maia. The Maiar are angels which normally don't have real bodies, much less an ability to reproduce. But when the angel Melian fell in love with the elf Thingol, she created a real body for herself, which was apparently biologically elvish. Their daughter looked like an uncommonly beautiful elven woman, but was more than a mere elf. And ''she'' had a son, Dior, with her human husband Beren, the first in a looooong line of HeinzHybrid dudes (culminating in [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Arwen and Aragorn]]).
* Commonplace in the ''Literature/GarrettPI'' novels, the most prominent being the troll/giant "grolls" Doris and Marsha.
* In S.L. Viehl's ''[[Literature/{{Stardoc}} Blade Dancer]]'', all of the "[[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture ClanChildren]] of Honor" are half-Jorenian. ''Only'' Jory and Kol [[spoiler:(who, perhaps predictably, hook up in the end after confirming that they're ''not'' [[BrotherSisterIncest half-siblings]])]] are HalfHumanHybrids.
* In the BooksOfTheRaksura, [[spoiler:the Fell]] abduct and rape members of a closely related species [[spoiler: the Raksura]] to produce hybrids with certain powers. In the first book, the antagonists turn out to be [[spoiler: a Fell flight that includes three hybrids with Raksura queen and mentor powers, and who want to continue the project]]; later in the series, we meet hybrids who were raised by the other parent race and are fairly normal youngsters, although their family is understandably secretive about their presence.
* Mary Gentle's Literature/{{Grunts}} has Orc/Halfing hybrids
* ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' has mostly angel/non-angel hybrids, which are [[FantasticRacism disliked]] by many angels, as well as magical A/magical B hybrids (like witch/elf, battle-witch/succubus and such), but they aren't considered anything unusual, as in-universe magical creatures (magicals) are considered as one group by outsiders. The whole "nonhuman hybrid" is zig-zagged with main character, whose both parents are humans, but due to magic in this universe being genetic and huge amount of LegoGenetics, Dora ends up not being human at all.

[[folder: LiveActionTV]]
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Whistler is the product of an InterspeciesRomance between a pure-blood demon and an agent of ThePowersThatBe (basically an angel, although not depicted with wings). The Powers and the demons banded together to kill his parents for their transgression, but the Powers spared Whistler to serve as an agent of balance.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS6E15Birthright "Birthright"]], Worf comes across a Romulan POWCamp with Klingon survivors of the Romulan's surprise attack on Khitomer. One of the younger Klingons, Ba'el, is half-Romulan.
* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'':
** Gul Dukat's illegitimate daughter Tora Ziyal, a child the Cardassian occupation leader had with his Bajoran mistress Tora Naprem. Since this was a strong taboo, her father initially planned to kill her to protect his career (and thus, ostensibly, the rest of his fully Cardassian family). The Occupation reportedly resulted in many other Cardassian/Bajoran hybrids, [[ChildByRape not all of them voluntary]], and largely unwelcome in both worlds.
** Jadzia Dax, a Trill, and Worf, a Klingon, eventually married and talked about having children, which Dr. Bashir confirmed was possible with some medical assistance. [[spoiler:Unfortunately Jadzia was shot dead by Dukat before it could happen.]]
** In an alternate timeline seen in [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS05E22ChildrenOfTime "Children of Time"]] the ''Defiant'' crash-landed on a planet in the Gamma Quadrant 200 years in the past. The crew intermarried, with Jadzia known to have married and had children with Worf. By the time of the episode the planet's entire population of 8,000 people descended from the crew are {{Heinz Hybrid}}s of (at minimum) human, Trill, and Klingon.
* T'Pol was planned to be revealed as half-Romulan in the fifth season of ''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]''. In the ''Trek'' universe Romulans are just Vulcans with some genetic differences due to sharing a common ancestor, and a Vulcan/Romulan hybrid may therefore be no more remarkable genetically than a black/white hybrid among humans. Probably ''slightly'' more of a difference, since they've been living on entirely different planets for a few thousand years, but still very much the same species.
** Similarly, Saavik from ''[[Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan The Wrath of Khan]]'' is revealed to be half-Romulan in one of the tie in novels, but you can't tell just by looking at her.
* A full Franchise/StarTrek list can be found [[http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Hybrid here]].
* ''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' has Phineas the troblin, half troll/half goblin, who looks far more humanlike than either of those descriptors would indicate. Maybe they cancel out.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** Gazetteer ''The Orcs of Thar'' gives instructions on how to create a hybrid humanoid. In rare cases, the rules can cause the appearance and size of a Kobold, while having all the combat abilities and stats of a Bugbear.
** The fey'ri race from the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' setting are part elf, part fiend.
** The BigBad in one of the early Role Aids supplements for 1st Edition [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons AD&D]] was an orc/dwarf hybrid, and the byblow of a dare, an orcish tavern wench, and an ''extremely'' intoxicated dwarf prince.
** Gully Dwarves of ''{{Dragonlance}}'' are the descendants of Dwarves and Gnomes. Seeing the results, Dwarves and Gnomes swore to NEVER BREED AGAIN! ON PAIN OF DEATH!! Sadly, Gully Dwarves by then had grown to sufficient numbers that they were a viable species.
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has Gaea's Skyfolk (an Elf/Merfolk cross) and Razorfin Hunter (a Goblin/Merfolk cross). Nobody has a clue where either of these came from, or why the Skyfolk can fly when neither Elves nor Merfolk can.
* The Ardwin setting for Greg Stolze's ''TabletopGame/{{Reign}}'' fantasy RPG is one where there is no humanity, but a group of three nonhuman races and their hybrid child races. It actually makes the distinction between biological versus cultural traits, meaning an orc raised among dwarves can learn certain "dwarven" ways of doing things while being unable to learn certain orcish ways.

[[folder: Video Games]]
* The Holberker in ''TheDarkEye'' are a very minor fringe race originating from [[AWizardDidIt otherwise unheard of]] crossbreeding between elves and orcs.
* ''VideoGame/WarCraft'' has Rexxar, half-orc half-Ogre who was the star of the bonus campaign in WCIII.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' itself has Lantresor, a more minor half-Orc half-Draenei character, and a whole village of half-Ogre half-Orcs including Rexxar's father, Leoroxx (Rexxar's mother is full orc, while Leoroxx isn't).
** Retcons made several years ago have made Garona Halforcen into a half-Orc and half-Draenei.
** When Illidan Stormrage absorbed the powers of the Skull of Gul'dan, he became "neither Night Elf nor Demon, but something more."
* ''GaiaOnline'' has the Gimpi evolving item, the result of a Devil Imp Potion and an Angel Imp Potion getting mixed.
* ''{{Creatures}} 2'' and ''3'' feature a Gene Splicer machine to make your own hybrids. In a likely case of ShownTheirWork, C2 hybrids tend to be unviable.
* ''VideoGame/{{DmC Devil May Cry}}'' turns Vergil and Dante from HalfHumanHybrids into half-angel, half-demon Nephilim.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'' and ''VideoGame/DarksidersII'' features the Four Horseman, last of a race of half-angel, half-demon Nephilim.
* The ancestors of humans in the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series are half-angel half-demon hybrids called the Nephalem. In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', it turns out your character is the first of the new Nephalem.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' had the Grey Prince, half-orc half [[spoiler: vampire]].
* In the ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'' Foundry mission [[Recap/StarTrekOnlineFoundryBaitAndSwitch "Bait and Switch"]] Varus Jolin, a Bajoran, is married to Saeihr, a Romulan, and she's six months pregnant with their daughter.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Visual Novels]]
* Sisters Lisianthus and Kikyou of ''{{Shuffle}}'' are half God (father) and half Demoness (mother). Primula is a genetically-engineered hybrid of half-Goddess and half-Demoness.
* Miru and Kaku in ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend Holiday Star'' are bipedal bird-mammal hybrids with dovelike heads. The species used in their creation aren't named, but they have white fur and some degree of manual dexterity - then again, [[FeatherFingers so do the birds]] - so there might be many things in there, with or without human genes.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Webcomics]]
* Akela T’nadne of ''SupernormalStep''.
* Keeva of ''Webcomic/MixedMyth'' is a goblin/elf.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has the mercenary Enor, who is half-blue dragon, half-ogre.
* Benny of ''LookingForGroup'' looks like the usual fantasy image of an orc, though her exact race is unknown. Eventually we get more information on her background: [[spoiler:Her mother is a blue elf, and her father is most likely the minotaur Krunch.]]
* ''Webcomic/{{Karin-dou 4koma}}'': Catherine is half fire-eating bird and half dog youkai. The result is a dog-eared girl with wings for arms that she can [[FeatherFingers somehow use]] as large beefy hands.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Western Animation]]
* Tom and Cindy in ''AKindOfMagic''. They look completely human, but their mother is a fairy and their father is an ogre ([[HypocriticalHumor not that it stops Cindy from being predjudiced against ogres]]).
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime,'' [[TalkingAnimal Talking Dog]] [[NonHumanSidekick Jake]] has five "[[FanNickname corndogs]]" with his long-time girlfriend, [[BadassAdorable Lady Rainicorn]] (a flying rainbow unicorn).
* ''GravityFalls'' features the Gremloblin, which is [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent half-goblin]] and [[GripingAboutGremlins half-gremlin]].
* A late episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'' reveals that the recurring villain Jack W. Tweeg is half Grunge and half Goblin, with his father being one of the beach-dwelling, water-sports-obsessed Surf Grunges.
* On ''TheClevelandShow,'' [[TalkingAnimal Tim the Bear]]'s parents were actually a black bear and a kangaroo, even though he displays no particular kangaroo qualities. This is pretty much just mentioned for a gag.
