->''"As it happens, I'm very much human...'' (sneezes and turns blue) ''...on my mother's side."''
-->-- '''Allen Francis Doyle''', ''Series/{{Angel}}''

When is the last time you heard of a HalfHumanHybrid who was human on his or her father's side? As stated under {{Dhampyr}}, these creatures' mothers tend to be human, and [[LineageComesFromTheFather their fathers... something else]]. In the case of [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]] and LittlePeople, a human just seems more likely to successfully carry a hybrid to term. Or maybe the idea of a human lady being seduced and ravished by some dashingly handsome male vampire/werewolf/demon/angel/alien/whatever is more alluring to some audiences than the opposite, for whatever reason.

Additionally, a lot of half-human hybrids are the product of rape, love-em-and-leave-em seduction, or tragic romance. Generally, it's easier to justify a GlorifiedSpermDonor if he's NotEvenHuman. Out of our traditional assumption that it is the men who travel and the women who stay home, or the simple biological fact that if a relationship ends or never existed in the first place while the woman is pregnant, she'll end up with the baby, comes the possibility that the child will be [[RaisedByNatives brought up among humans]].

If the father does stick around in a mixed marriage with the mother, that's still no guarantee of a happy childhood. [[MalignedMixedMarriage All will be discriminated against]], and chances are one or both parents will be killed by bigots... sometimes [[HonorRelatedAbuse inside their own family]].

Can be considered a fantastic extension of UglyGuyHotWife.

Compare MarsNeedsWomen, where if other species find female humans attractive, it stands to reason that there would be more hybrid children. Contrast BoldlyComing [[note]]The female tends to a): [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe be really]] [[CuteMonsterGirl really beautiful]], b): die before the story begins, and c): if she stays alive, be the queen of her race. Nonhuman mums generally also belong to more "feminine" races, such as fairies, mermaids, angels, and the like. Also, inversions may have the male as a RetiredBadass and the female as part of the StandardHeroReward.[[/note]]. See also IHateYouVampireDad.

!!Straight Examples

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''LightNovel/VampireHunterD'': [[spoiler: Count Magnus Lee to D: 'Was your sire ... Dracula?!?' Also, it's revealed the Count's daughter Lamirca was the result of a fling with a mortal]].
** In the ''Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust'' movie, Left-Hand briefly implies that D's motivation for Charlotte Ellborne isn't money, it's the possibility that [[spoiler:she and Meir Link could conceive another danpeal/dhampyr]].
** This seems to hold true for all of the (natural) dhampyrs in the books.
* ''Manga/InuYasha'': Tends to hold true for canon hanyou; the title character (half-dog demon), Shiori (half-bat demon) and Jinenji (half-horse demon) are all the product of {{youkai}} fathers and human mothers.
** One exception appears in a filler arc in the anime where Gyu-oh is the son of a human male and a female bull-youkai.
** However, the inversion is PlayedForLaughs when Inuyasha and Kagome meet Jinenji's mother, an elderly crone with a terrifying temper. They initially think she's a demonic mountain witch until they learn she's the human parent.
** In the film ''Anime/InuYashaTheMovieFireOnTheMysticIsland'' appears six more hanyous. At them, however, it is unknown whether the father or the mother was the youkai. A flashback shows the time in which there were many hanyous on this island. And there is implied that in most cases, the father was a youkai and the mother was a human.
* ''Manga/DaiNoDaibouken'' has Dai and Lahart.
* ''Manga/DragonBall'' spat out five of these, all born from Saiyan dads and Earthling moms: Gohan, Goten (sons of Goku and Chi-Chi), Trunks, Bra (children of Vegeta and Bulma) and Pan (daughter of Gohan and Videl). Although Gohan, of course, was actually a half-Saiyan.
* ''Manga/NurarihyonNoMago'' has an {{youkai}} grandfather and a (spiritually strong) human grandmother, his mother is human and his father is [[HalfHumanHybrid half-human]]. There are some other characters who share this trait too.
* In ''Manga/SilentMobius'', Rally Cheyenne's mother is human and her father is a Lucifer Hawk (basically a demon). [[spoiler:Katsumi Liqueur has the same kind of parentage. Their heritages are part of the reason they can tap mystic powers.]]
* ''Manga/KishinDoujiZenki'' has [[spoiler: Prince Inugami]], whose mother was a human lady named Rengetsu and his father was a ''very'' powerful demon.
* ''Manga/KongohBancho'' (and his brother and sister). Worth noting is that their father is [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction roughly the size of two or three houses stacked up]]. (Oddly, while the two males are {{Nigh Invulnerab|ility}}le ten-foot-tall [[HeroicBuild mountains of muscle]], their sister appears to be a totally normal teenage girl.)
* [[spoiler: The protagonist Yusuke]] in ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'' is the descendant of a union between a female human doctor in feudal Japan and [[spoiler: Raizen, one of the strongest demon lords of Makai. Yusuke then undergoes Mazoku Atavism, in which his demonic heritage springs to the forefront]].
* Borderline case: In ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'', [[spoiler:Ed and Al]] have a human mother and a father who is [[spoiler:a living Philosopher's Stone]]. While said father is ''technically'' still human, he's also ''far'' from normal.
* Meet the Okumura twins from ''Manga/BlueExorcist'': the offspring of a human mother and {{Satan}}. Rin's the only one who inherits the demonic tendencies, however. [[spoiler: Or so we think; Yukio also shows them later too.]]
* ''La Blue Girl'': [[TheHero Miko]] is the daughter of King Seikima [[OurDemonsAreDifferent (a demon king)]] and Maria, a human woman. It was something of a political arrangement. Miko's clan originally used sex to hunt those demons because they were engaged in rampant rape; the marriage was a way of forging a truce between them so they don't rape/kill each other.
* In ''AudioPlay/SaintBeast'', Kira and Maya's mother is human, and their father is the angel Lucifer. They are raised in heaven by neither parent, but kept away from others due to FantasticRacism.
* The kids in ''Anime/WolfChildrenAmeAndYuki'', with their dad being a wolf youkai.
* Justified in ''Manga/TokyoGhoul''. Itori explains that even if a female Ghoul managed to conceive a child with a human, her body would simply treat her half-human offspring like a food source and absorb it for nutrients. On the other hand, a half-breed conceived by a human woman would die from malnutrition in the womb. The mother of the One-Eyed Owl got around this through forcing herself to commit cannibalism, allowing her to give birth to a healthy HalfHumanHybrid. [[spoiler: Hybrids turn out to be a lot less rare than initially thought, as the Washuu Clan have a BreedingCult devoted to using human women to produce an army of TykeBomb hybrids. The one catch is that most hybrids are BlessedWithSuck, born with enhanced physical traits but none of a ghoul's special powers and a significantly shortened lifespan]].
* In ''Anime/{{Endride}}'', Louise's mom was Endra (basically human) and her father was Zoozian (humanoid animal). They endured a MalignedMixedMarriage despite the discrimination and punishment it brought on them, but although Louise could pass as Endra, watching what they faced turned her into something of a BrokenBird.
* In ''Manga/{{Superior}}'', [[UnevenHybrid Angelica]] is a second generation example, with both her father and grandfather being demons (well, half-demon in her father's case). [[spoiler:Inverted with her son Gabriel in the epilogue.]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' is the son of the human witch Sarah Hughes and demon prince Azzael.
* ComicBook/{{Invincible}} is the son of the [[CaptainErsatz Ersatz]] Superman, Omni-man, with a human for a mother.
* ComicBook/{{Raven}} from ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' has the demon Trigon for a father. Trigon himself is the result of a union between a female member of a sect and the god they worshipped, both from another dimension. Likewise, her teammate Cassie "ComicBook/WonderGirl" Sandsmark is the daughter of Zeus and a human woman. Which is perfectly in character with [[ReallyGetsAround the mythological Zeus]].
* ComicBook/{{Nightcrawler}}, of Comicbook/XMen fame, is the son of Comicbook/{{Mystique}} and some ancient mutant whose family is widely known as demons and/or were the inspiration for demons. Technically half human(mutant) and half human(mutant), but half human and half demon if you ask his father's family or any of their enemies. [[spoiler:Not counting the fact that [[WordOfGod Mystique was originally intended to be Nightcrawler's father]], so [[ExecutiveVeto if not for some editor]], he'd fall into the '''[=Human Mom Female Dad=]''' variety.]]
* ''ComicBook/{{Firebreather}}'' is the son of a ''300-foot fire-breathing dragon'' and a human woman.
* ComicBook/{{Smax}} and his {{Half Identical Twin|s}} are the product of an ogre raping a human woman.
* Genis and Phyla, the children of Kree ComicBook/CaptainMarVell and Elysius, who confusingly was an Eternal artificially created by a super-powerful computer named ISSAC. Their father is an alien, while their mother is a member of a human subspecies. Oh, and their grandpa is a computer. Similarly, Suzy Sherman, aka Ultra Girl, is the daughter of a Kree father and a human mother.
* From Marvel's mythological side: ComicBook/{{Ares}}, the Greek WarGod, has a half-human, mortal son named Alexander. Loki, the Norse trickster god, also has a half-human daughter named Tess Black. (Actually, Loki [[ReallyGetsAround has hundreds of children.]] "I'm a Norse god.." he claims. "It... happens.")
* Ron Peterson/Captain Clarinet in ''ComicBook/{{PS238}}'', son of the local Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/LoisLane [[AlternateCompanyEquivalent equivalents]].
* [[ComicBook/{{Hawkman}} Katar Hol's]] father is a Thanagarian and his mother is a Cherokee woman.
* The Lilim, most famously as portrayed in ''Comicbook/{{Lucifer}}'', is an entire race of this. Being the first woman, we can't even say Lilith just looks like a human. And she has at least one child with seemingly every living thing in creation ''except'' man.
* ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}''
** [[TheBigBadWolf Bigby Wolf]] and Snow White copulate while under the effects of a magic potion, (however, since Bigby is able to shift between wolf and human forms, HotSkittyOnWailordAction is averted,) causing Snow to give birth to six children capable of shifting between wolf and human forms and flying, plus a seventh who is a sentient gust of wind with no physical form. The flying and wind powers are a variation of Bigby's "huff-and-puff", which he got because he's the lupine version of this trope; his mother was a normal wolf and his father was the god-like, shapeshifting North Wind.
** Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast have a child, and while both parents were human at the time, there was enough of Beast's powers transferred to make the child able to transform into a multi-limbed monster.
* In Creator/DCComics, Comicbook/{{Etrigan}} is the brother of Merlin (son of a demon father and human mother) in some stories.
* The New 52 version of Franchise/WonderWoman is the daughter of Hippolyta and Zeus.
* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', Victor Mancha is the son of the killer robot Comicbook/{{Ultron}} and a human woman, although in this case, there was no insemination involved - Ultron built Victor's body. There's a popular theory that later Runaway Klara is the daughter of a mortal woman and some sort of god, though this has never been stated in canon.

* [[spoiler:Annabelle]] from ''Machinima/ShadowsOfThePast'' is with with a human mother and a [[spoiler:Decepticon father]]. How this works is still trying to be decided.
* The basic premise of ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' is that Harry is the son of Thor. What complicates matters slightly is the fact that Thor was incarnated as James at the same, since this was the first attempt at teaching him humility. As can be imagined, it went pear shaped and Thor nearly went insane, leading to his memory being blocked and to the events of ''{{Film/Thor}}''.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}}'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6844942/1/Knocked-Up Knocked Up]]'', the alien Megamind ends up getting the human Roxanne pregnant. Their daughter, Emma, looks more alien thanks to her father having stronger genes.
* The ''Film/StarTrek'' fanfic ''Fanfic/WrittenInTheStars'' has Amanda Georgiana Kirk. Her father is the HalfHumanHybrid Spock and her mother is the fully Human Fem!Kirk.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'' fanfiction [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9606249/1/Mom-Why-Are-We-Different Mom, Why Are We Different?]] Desiree Boggs' mother, Danielle [=DeMarsh=], is a human, and her father, Randall Boggs, is a lizard-like monster.
* ''FanFic/YinAndYangSeries'': Rita and Waikiki, whose mothers are both human, and whose fathers are both [[Manga/SgtFrog Keronians]].
* ''[[Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil The Stronger Evil]]'': While [[DraconicHumanoid Drago]], FutureChild of the Fire Demon Sorcerer Shendu, didn't get any mention of his mother in [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures the canon]], he's given a human as his mother; [[spoiler:Valerie Payne]].

* In ''Film/HellboyIITheGoldenArmy'', [[spoiler:it's never mentioned that he's a HalfHumanHybrid, so the trope doesn't apply there, but [[BabiesEverAfter he gets Liz pregnant]]]].
* ''Film/{{Starman}}''.
* The meanest trapper in ''Film/CannibalTheMusical'', at least according to his song:
-->''I can brave the nastiest weather.''
-->''Even if it's 80 below.''
-->''[[HotSkittyOnWailordAction My pa was an elephant]], but that's irrelevant.''
-->''My ma was an eskimo.''
* ''Film/TheFlyII'': Seth and Ronnie's child was this in the sequel.
* Literature/{{Beowulf}} in the [[Film/Beowulf1999 1999 film adaptation]]. In the [[WesternAnimation/{{Beowulf|2007}} CGI adaptation]], it gets inverted with Grendel, whose mother is a hideously ugly snake-beast (that can make herself look like Creator/AngelinaJolie). Also [[spoiler:Grendel's half-brother, Beowulf's son with the same creature]].
* ''Franchise/StarWars''
** Anakin's father is nonhuman regardless of which origin story is the truth. Either he was conceived by TheForce or [[spoiler:he was created by Darth Plagueis, a Muun and Palpatine's Master]].
** A little more straightforward example: Darth Maul is a Dathomirian... a hybrid born of a human (Witch of Dathomir) mother and a Zabrak father. This trope then becomes genetic: male Dathomirians resemble their Zabrak fathers, where female Dathomirians resemble their human mothers.
* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'': Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, the main protagonist, has a human mother and a father who is "something very old" and unknown. This parallels the treatment in [[ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy the original comic books]], where his father is J'Son, Emperor of the Spartoi.
** As of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', his dad is revealed to be [[spoiler:Ego, the ''living planet!'']] Since this posed certain biological complications, AFormYouAreComfortableWith was involved.
* In ''Film/TheGoldenChild'', the character Kala is stated to be the result of a dragon raping her (human) mother.

* In Creator/MarionZimmerBradley's ''Literature/{{Darkover}}'' series this is the most common scenario for crossbreeds between humans and the [[SpaceElves chieri]]. Of course, given the chieri's reclusive lifestyle, ability to change gender and [[MayflyDecemberRomance ridiculously long lifespans]] it is usually just more likely that such pairings tend to lean more towards human women bearing half-chieri children. There are exceptions however, such as in ''The World Wreckers'', where a chieri bears the child of a human father.
* Renesmee from ''Literature/{{Twilight}}''. It's apparently only even ''possible'' for a male vampire to have a child with a female human; they can't even have children with female vampires (who can't have children at all).
* Played sort of sideways in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}''. [[spoiler:Tobias]] is the son of a human woman and an Andalite, an alien, but is genetically fully human himself since Andalites can shapeshift and his father was in human form when he was conceived.
* The interbreeding with fairies in ''Literature/TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'' always seems to follow this pattern.
* Most of the half-faerie characters in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''.
** Played with a bit too. One of the changeling characters mentions they were born when a [[RapeAsDrama male troll raped a female human]].
** [[spoiler: Also Inverted. Sarissa and Maeve are the daughters of Queen Mab of the Unseelie Court and an unknown mortal man. Mab herself also claims to have been part human, and her mother is one of (or possibly two of) the world's most powerful faeries.]]
** Harry himself is something of an inversion. His father was a stage magician, his mother a powerful, mysterious wizard.
** [[spoiler:Thomas and most of the Raiths. Interestingly, from a breeding standpoint, all White Court vampires, like Thomas, start out as vanilla full-blooded humans at birth (they may or may not even know they're anything but). A sort of symbiotic demon wakes up within them when they're around 18, and gives them little subconscious nudges telling them to feed. If they do, it awakens fully and turns them into proper vampires, but if you can keep them from feeding and their first meal is a person they genuinely love and loves them back, it "starves" and they live out their life as vanilla humans.]]
** As of ''Literature/SkinGame'', add [[spoiler: Goodman Grey to the list. It's heavily implied that his father is a naagloshii]].
* Toyed with in Creator/BruceCoville's ''Literature/RodAlbrightAlienAdventures'' series. The title character's mother is human; his father is... well, actually human as well. Thing is, he's an ''Atlantean'' human, off a different genetic road.
* The children's book ''My Dad, Atomic Ace''. As the title implies, his father is a famous superhero with powers on the scale of Superman, while his mother is perfectly ordinary. The end of the book reveals that he's starting to develop his father's powers, on the somewhat weaker scale of his father's early years.
* This is the case for Vladimir Tod in ''Literature/{{The Chronicles of Vladimir Tod}}''. Partially subverted though in that his parents actually got married and led a very happy, normal life together until they were [[spoiler: murdered]].
* Creator/HPLovecraft's "Literature/TheDunwichHorror." The father of Wilbur Whateley [[spoiler: and his monstrous brother]] is Yog-Sothoth, an EldritchAbomination locked outside space and time. How this happened [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction anyone's guess]].
* Played straight in the ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians'' series, when Percy is a demigod and the son of Poseidon, as well as the existence of children of all the other male gods. There are plenty of inversions as well (characters who are the offspring of Aphrodite et al), and the first one is {{lampshade|Hanging}}d: Percy knows that the girl he's talking to is a human/god half-breed like himself, and he asks her "Who's your father?" The girl patiently explains that her ''father'' is a normal human, and it's her ''mother'' who is one of the goddesses.
** The sequel books ''Literature/TheHeroesOfOlympus'' shows a large city in which demigods and humans live together, and have common children. Almost all of the children have a demigod father and a human mother, or a human father and a demigod mother, or even both parents who are demigods.
*** And then there is Frank Zhang, son of Ares and a demigod mother.
* In the ''Literature/NightHuntress'' books, Cat's human mother was raped by her vampire father, resulting in HalfVampire Cat's conception. Taken a step further when her mother teaches her FantasticRacism against all vampires. [[AbusiveParents Yes, including Cat,]] the subject of much self-loathing.
* Most of the vampires in Poppy Z. Brite's ''Literature/LostSouls'' are born of human mothers and vampire fathers. Brite's vampires are a predatory subspecies of humanity, that interbreeds with and preys upon their human cousins. Interestingly, the younger vampires, such as Zillah and his lover [[spoiler:and son]] Nothing, have so much human ancestry that they've lost almost all the 'classic' vampire traits such as fangs and vulnerability to sunlight. One character refers to a vampire woman who became pregnant when she was raped by a human, but her fetus killed her before its birth.
* Werewolves in the ''Literature/MercyThompson'' series are biologically locked into this trope, as a female werewolf that gets pregnant will miscarry when her next lunar transformation kicks in. The one exception was Charles's mom, who suppressed her changes with [[MagicalNativeAmerican Native American shamanic magic]] long enough to give birth, and her mate was also a werewolf, not a human. So, male werewolves must pair up with humans if they want to father kids. Mercy herself is the product of a human mother and a male coyote shapeshifter.
* In ''Literature/TheChroniclesOfPrydain'', the Sons and Daughters of Don -- that is, most of the royalty in Prydain -- are thus called because they are descended from a union between Lady Don (who is implied to be human) and the sun god Belin.
* Played straight in ''Literature/ChroniclesOfTheKencyrath'' with Kenan who is the product of a Shifter father and a human (well, [[FiveRaces Kencyr Highborn]]) mother.
* Played straight in Creator/MikhailAkhmanov's ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Invasion]]'', where Lieutenant Abigail [=McNeil=] is captured by the [[HumanAliens Faata]] and impregnated with the seed of a high-caste male (i.e. a powerful {{psychic|Powers}}). The resulting child, named Paul Richard Corcoran, develops his own telepathic abilities and uses them against the Faata, who have pretty much raped his mother. Averted with his descendants in the sequels, who can get the lineage from either the mother or the father (e.g. Corcoran had no sons, only two daughters).
** Also averted with Mark Valdez's half-brother, whose mother is a [[HumanAliens Lo'ona Aeo]]. In fact, the half-brother himself is completely Lo'ona Aeo, as their reproduction is purely telepathic. Mark's father Sergey was only the catalyst to conception (this method is similar to Asari in ''Franchise/MassEffect''). Then again, given the Sergey Valdez is himself descended from Paul Richard Corcoran, he is not entirely human either.
* The mother of Vlad and Lacrimosa in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'' was originally a human, whereas their father was born as one of the de Magpyr vampires.
* ''Literature/TheWardstoneChronicles'': Both Tom and Alice fulfill this trope. Tom is the son of the Lamia (a Greek demi-goddess) and a human sailor. Alice is the daughter of [[TheDevil The Fiend]] and a human witch.
* In ''Literature/TheOtherworld'', half-demons are always born from a human woman and a demon. The demons take on humanoid form to seduce, and apparently one of the ways cacodemons (chaotic demons) cause chaos in the human world is...fathering babies.
* ''Literature/TheObsidianTrilogy'': Vestakia's mother was a Wildmage human, and her father a Demon prince in disguise. When her mother found out the truth, she cast a spell to ensure that Vestakia has a human mind and morals, at the cost of Demonic physical features. Vestakia thus has a difficult childhood until she meets the heroes.
* ''Literature/SpaceCaptainSmith'' has [[spoiler:Rihanna Mitchell]]. Comes in handy quite a bit.
* Played straight and averted in the {{Literature/Deverry}} Chronicles. There are at least two half-humans with elven fathers, and one half-human with a dwarven father. The mook Loddlaen, however, has a human father and elven mother, and the lineage of the Maelwaedd's is traced back at least to the ascension to the gwerbrert seat of a male ancestor who had an elven wife. [[spoiler:Which provides a convenient excuse for a half-elf son of the house who isn't known to be a half-elf. It's complicated.]]
* Severely messed with in ''Literature/TheMalloreon''. A evil man agrees to help the demons attempt to interbreed with human women; such hybrids will serve the full demons. It does NOT end well for the mothers and most of the offspring.
* Daine of ''Literature/TheImmortals''. Her mother Sarra was human and got a ''lot'' of flak from the village for having a bastard child, but she would always cryptically allude to Daine's father disapproving when they said she should get a husband. [[spoiler:Her dad is a minor God of the Hunt named Weiryn, and it's from him that Daine gets her magic.]]
* Magiere, (anti)heroine of ''Literature/TheSagaOfTheNobleDead'' is a dhampir with a human mother, vampire father. Justified in that Magiere's birth was only possible thanks to an elaborate magical ritual (vampires naturally being infertile) that consumed her father's energy and (re)killed him immediately following his having sex with her mother. Logistically, this would make a vampire being the mother essentially impossible (although in one early book a skeptical nobleman snidely asks Magiere if the vampire was her father or mother- she deflects the question, as at this stage she doesn't know).
** However, it is inverted by Leesil. He is a half-elf, and has a human father and a elvish mother.
* The dhampirs Joshua and Angeline Dawes from ''Literature/LastSacrifice'', have a Moroi vampire father and a human mother. They are members of the Keepers, where such mixed marriages are not uncommon.
* In ''Auf zwei Planeten'' ("On Two Planets", 1897) by [[Creator/KurdLasswitz Kurd Laßwitz]], the half-human, half-Martian Friedrich Ell is the son of All, a Martian spaceship captain stranded on Earth, and a German governess working in Australia. Ell was raised by both parents on Earth, but became a full orphan just before turning 21 (All never found a way to return to Mars). In the course of the novel another human/Martian couple is formed, consisting of German scientist Josef Saltner and the fair La, but the book ends before the two can seriously start to think about having children.
* Kiriel, one of the main characters of ''Literature/TheSunSword'', is the daughter of a mortal woman and the god [[GodOfEvil Allasakar]] (though her mother wasn't ''entire'' normal - as a healer-born, she had both HealingHands ''and'' a HealingFactor, the latter of which was necessary for bearing a child of Allasakar's virulent power to term, and she still died in childbirth). Most of [[SemiDivine the god-born]] are like this, with the male gods being more likely to get involved with mortal women than the reverse, with the notable exception of the [[TeamMom Mother's]] high priestess, who is also her daughter (the father being an unspecified mortal).
* In ''Literature/TheNekropolisArchives'', the {{Dhampyr}} Devona Kanti was born of a vampire father and human mother.
* In ''Literature/TheMortalInstruments'' warlocks and witches are the children of demons and humans. However, it is implied that most or almost all warlocks are born between demonic fathers and human mothers. The warlock Magnus Bane even once says that it is a rare exception when a warlock has a human father and a demonic mother.
** In ''Literature/TheInfernalDevices'' has arranges the [[BigBad Big Bad]] there even that he can kidnap a shadowhunter-girl who no rune has (the runes prevent that female shadowhunters can get pregnant by demons), is born with a special kind of warlock for his plans (apparently he has not the idea, to bring together a male shadowhunter with a female demon, what this plan would have made a lot easier for him).
** In ''Literature/TheDarkArtifices'' but it is inverted. Helen and Mark Blackthorn are the children of a male shadowhunter and a female fairy. Thus, it is not still the combination of a human father and a non-human mother, but rather a half-human father and a non-human mother.
** In ''Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy'', Will Herondale and Tessa Gray have two children, James and Lucie. Will is a shadowhunter, but Tessa is a warlock, which is also related to the shadowhunters. James and Lucie have a half-human father and a quarter-human mother. Technically, the two are demonic to a quarter, and at the very least James has special forces for this reason.
* In the ''Literature/DarkestPowers'' trilogy, Half-Demons like Rae and Liz have a human mother and a demon father
* ''Literature/TheCrimsonShadow'': Siobhan had an elven father and human mother.
* The plot of the German booklet series ''Maddrax'' plays on a [[AfterTheEnd postapocalyptic]] [[TheApunkalypse earth]]. There are many mutants, but also other species. One of these species are the hydrites, a kind of [[FishPeople fish people]] that live in large cities along the seabed. Surprisingly, they can naturally reproduce with humans. The resulting hybrids are called mendrites. And almost all of the mendrites whose parents were known had a hydrite father and a human mother.
** The [[{{Mutants}} mutants]] also often mate with humans. But apart from three exceptions (and two of them are twin sisters), all of these half-mutants have a mutant father and a human mother.
* ''Literature/MagnusChaseAndTheGodsOfAsgard'' has the titular hero and his friend Samirah, with whom it is playing straight. Magnus is the son of Frey, Samirah is the daughter of Loki, and both have human mothers. And some [[DivineParentage minor characters]] are also the children of male gods and female humans.
** But Blitzen inverted it, for his mother is a goddess. However, his father is not a human, but a dwarf.
* ''Literature/VillainsByNecessity'': Sam, who is an assassin but a caring, friendly person overall despite this.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* A few pop up in ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', though most involve [[HumanAliens Sebaceans]], who [[spoiler: were engineered from and]] look like humans.
** Scorpius, who is the product of a Scarren male raping a [[HumanAliens Sebacean]] female.
** Jothee, whose father is D'Argo, a Luxan, and whose (late) mother was Lo'Laan, a Sebacean.
** Interestingly, the Scarrans tried to pull a fast one on Scorpius and told him that his father was a Peacekeeper male who raped a Scarran female. He quickly figures out the truth, though.
** Inverted with D'Argo Sun Crichton who has a human father and an alien ([[HumanAliens Sebacean]]) mother.
* Several in Franchise/StarTrek
** [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Spock]] is the son of a human mother and a Vulcan father.
** [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Sela]] has a human mother, [[spoiler:Tasha Yar]], and a Romulan father.
** K'Ehleyr, mother to Worf's son Alexander, is also a hybrid, though she embraces her human half rather than her Klingon half.
** Played straight with [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Naomi Wildman]], whose mom is human and whose father is Ktarian.
** An alternate-timeline episode of ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' has the titular starship turned into a generational ship. Some of the crew are descended from Phlox (a Denobulan) and a human woman named Amanda.
* ''Series/DoctorWho''
** The Doctor himself ''claimed'' to be an example of this in the TV movie. The line proved pretty controversial with fans and gets a decent amount of mockery - in the [[Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse IDW comic]] ''The Forgotten'', Eight explains it away as a trick, achieved with only "a wide-eyed expression, a couple of words, and a half-broken chameleon arch"; and in "Bad Wolf" RTD got in a little jab:
---->'''Rose''': That makes 'em... half human.\\
** The 2015 series finale, however, brought it up as a legitimate possibility for the first time in years, but didn't confirm or deny anything.
** The [[MeaningfulName Vespiform]] in "The Unicorn and the Wasp" plays this trope a bit straighter though. (Daddy was a giant wasp. Unicorns were probably not involved.)
* Evie from ''Series/OutOfThisWorld''.
* One of the experiments in ''Series/{{V|1983}}''. Robin Maxwell gets pregnant by a Visitor.
* The Visitors' plan in ''Series/{{V 2009}}'' seems to be [[spoiler:to capture human females and impregnate them]].
* ''Series/{{Angel}}'s'' Doyle is perfectly human--on his mother's side. His father was a Brachen demon. Later in the series and the comics there are more half-demons. Many parents are not known, but it is implied that in most cases, the father is a demon and the mother is a human.
** But by Billy Blim it is inverted, he has a human father and a demonic mother.
** In the series you can also see a demon, which uses male humans to pregnant human women with his brood. The brood, however, are not half-demons, but demons as well.
* On ''Series/{{Sliders}}'', Wade got PutOnABus by sending her to a breeding farm, where she presumably had babies with the [=CroMags=] as fathers. Justified in that, thanks to Quinn and Colin's parents, the Kromagg females always die at childbirth. This necessitates breeding {{Half Human Hybrid}}s, while trying to keep their human emotions in check.
* ''Series/EarthFinalConflict'': Lili had a half human/half Jaridian baby. Liam is an interesting case in that he has ''three'' parents. His alien father Ha'gel was an {{Energy Being|s}} who took the form of Ronald Sandoval and, more or less, raped Siobhan Beckett (although no actual intercourse took place). Beckett gives birth in record time, and the child matures in a matter of days. Liam, thus, has the genes of not only Sandoval and Beckett but also Ha'gel (he has ''triple''-helix DNA).
* ''Series/KousokuSentaiTurboranger''. One of the DarkChick HalfHumanHybrid, Kilika, is born out of a male Bouma and a female human. We never know the gender of the parents of Yamimaru, however.
* In ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiRanger'', Isamu was one of the Magitopians who went missing with Hikaru after their ill fated fight against Infershia and Meemy's FaceHeelTurn, Miyuki was a mere human at that point until she asked Magiel to give her holy saint powers to fight against the forces of Infershia and to give her children a chance
* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' had a few human women who had children by ''male'' [[OurCentaursAreDIfferent centaurs]]. Pass the ''BrainBleach''.
** A friend of Hercules is a satyr. He married a human woman, and with her got three children. These, however, appear to be ordinary humans.
** The [[CharacterTitle titular]] Hercules is the son of Zeus and a mortal mother.
** And it is implying that Xena is the daughter of a human woman, Cyrene, and Ares, God of War.
** In the series, you can see several demigods, and most of them just play it straight. But four of them inverted it.
* In ''Series/TheOuterLimits1963'' episode "The Children of Spider County", the main character learns he's one of a group of {{Half Human Hybrid}}s whose father is an alien.
* Alluded to in ''Series/{{Tracker}}'', where the main character, Mel, discovers that her grandfather was an alien.
* ''Series/TheFallen'' mini-series (and the original novels) are based on the myth of {{Fallen Angel}}s coming to Earth after the defeat of [[TheDevil Lucifer]], many of whom impregnate human women. These children are {{Nephilim}}, half-angels who have their parents' angelic abilities (e.g. speaking any language, flying, creating flaming swords and throwing fireballs) but not the experience to use them. The angels who fought in the war, called the Powers, hunt down the Fallen and their offspring, believing it to be the [[{{God}} Creator]]'s will ([[spoiler:Archangel Michael later reveals that is not so]]). It can be assumed that angels cannot reproduce amongst themselves, even though two are shown having sex. Also, it is implied that only male angels are fertile. No child of a female angel is ever mentioned. Additionally, all human women carrying Nephilim die at childbirth, which usually leaves the Nephilim resentful towards their fathers.
** The protagonist is a special kind of Nephilim known as the Redeemer, prophesied [[spoiler:by Lucifer]] to be able to redeem fallen angels who wish to return to Heaven. Apparently, for a fallen angel to die before redemption is a FateWorseThanDeath (i.e. nothingness).
* Scott Hayden, Jr., in ''Series/{{Starman}}''.
* A less obvious example is Sabrina's parents in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch''. Her mother is a human architect, while her father is a warlock trapped in a spellbook!
* ''Series/OutOfThisWorld'': The series revolves around Evie Ethel Garland, a young girl who discovers on her thirteenth birthday that her father is an alien named Troy, from the planet Antareus, who married her mother and "merged lifeforms" to create Evie. Evie's half-alien heritage gives her superhuman abilities.
* In ''Serie/{{Supernatural}}'' once appeares a young demigod named Oliver, who is the son of Prometheus.
** In addition, there is also a half-demon named Jesse Turner, who has a demon father and a human mother (though he was not convinced by sex).
** Also, you can see a female nephilim named Jane. But with her, it is unknown who her parents were (though among some fans is believed that she was the daughter of a guardian angel, whereby it would also play straight with her).
** Later, you sees another nephilim named Jack, who is the son of Lucifer and a human woman.
** This is the way in which rugaru reproduce. A rugaru spends his life as an ordinary man. As soon as a woman is pregnant by him, he transforms into a rugaru.
** In this way also shapeshifters are born. A male shapeshifter has sex with a human woman, and the common child becomes a shapeshifter in his or her youth. At least in some cases, the shapeshifter [[BedTrick takes the form of the man the woman loves]], so she does not know she has sex with a monster.
*** The variant that a female shapshifter receives the child of a human man is never shown, but this variant is not explicitly excluded.
* In ''Series/{{Smallville}}'' occurs the young girl Maddie van Horn. She has a metahuman as father, and a human as mother. And she has the same powers as her father.
** Later, in the series, you sees a kryptonian who lives with a human woman and has a son with her. But he wears a bracelet with blue kryptonite, so he has [[BroughtDownToNormal turned into a human being]].
* In ''Series/TheShannaraChronicles'' this trope is even played very strong. Will is a half-elf, and had an elven father and a human mother. Throughout the series of time is always told what his father was a hero, what powerful forces he had, what he has done special, etc.. His mother is against it only rarely mentioned after the first episode.
** Later appears a small half-elf girl, who also had an elven father and a human mother, but she was conceived by a rape.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'' has the mutant Eddie Van Blundht. He's playing it straight. He had a tail (which he had let himself be amputated), and limited shapeshifting powers. He used these to [[BedTrick rape]] five women so that these babies got. Later it turns out that his father also had these abilities. His mother is never mentioned, but it is assumed that she was a human.
** In another episode, one sees girls who are quadruplets, and [[{{Nephilim}} nephilim]]. Her father was an angel, and her mother was a human.
** Another episode has a demon. He makes a human woman pregnant because he wants a human baby, but all his children are also demons, even if the mother is a human. This episode also shows a female demon who wants to have a demon child, but when she pairs with humans, her children are also human. But at the end of the episode she gets a child of the male demon.
** Later appears Dylan Lokensgard, who invert this trope. He is a kind of mutant insect-human hybrid. His mother is also such a creature, but his father is an ordinary human.
** Mulder and Scully have a child named William. But Scully was implanted long before his birth with Alien-DNA. This is the case of a human father and a mostly-human mother.

[[folder: Mythology and Religion]]
* Most of the demigods and other {{Half Human Hybrid}}s in Myth/ClassicalMythology. Hercules, the Minotaur, Romulus and Remus, Pollux, Minos, Helen, maybe Dionysus... There are some exceptions, but they're significantly outnumbered. (In fact, Zeus has had a ''lot'' of children with mortal lovers; that tends to happen [[ReallyGetsAround with people like him.]])
* Myth/{{Merlin}} is usually said to be half-human, with his father as an incubus, demon or the Devil himself. Other versions describe his father as a fairy. His mother is said to be a nun or a princess, depending on the version.
* UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}. His mother was Mary, a human, and His father the Almighty {{God}}. How much that counts depends on your beliefs on the relationship of the human race and God, and where/what the difference is.
* ''Literature/TheBible'': The Book of Genesis very briefly mentions the {{Nephilim}} being the offspring of "the daughters of men" and "the sons of God". What exactly that means is the subject of a great deal of debate among Judeo-Christian scholars. The book of Enoch depicts the "daughters of men" and "sons of God" from Genesis to be human women and watcher angels, making the fallen ones they birthed hybrids. Enoch never made it into the Jewish Tanakh though and most Christians ended up rejecting it too so if Genesis itself is a straight example of this trope or not is unknown.

[[folder:Tabletop RPG]]
* In the ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' TabletopGame/{{Greyhawk}} setting, the evil deity Iuz was the child of the human wizardess Iggwilv and the demon lord Graz'zt. (And Graz'zt has other children too, many with mortal lovers; Iuz is just the most well-known.)
* Both played straight and inverted in ''TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}}'', where the Gentleman Caller makes fathering half-fiends on human women a hobby. Hags, on the other hand, are a OneGenderRace who must invert this trope to reproduce. Harkon Lukas does the former a lot as well, red widows do the latter, and [[GenderBender dread doppelgangers]] do both.
* God-Blooded humans are fairly common in ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}''. Most written examples seem to involve the human parent being the mother, although this may be because female gods are capable of being much more discerning in the matter of child-bearing (not only do they generally not conceive unless they wish to, but they can control the length of the pregnancy), while male gods have to put up with the same randomness as everybody else. Inverted with any reference to women Lunars producing beastmen progeny (most notably Raksi, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast the Queen of Fangs]].)
* In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' and ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', Dragons are inherently magical creatures and can often shape shift. This has led to almost anything being able to carry the half-dragon template, caused by the parentage of the character or creature being a dragon on either the father or mother's side, although it seems that it is more common for the father to be one. This had led to many jokes to do with the heritage of half-dragon characters. (Doubly so if said character is a Druid). In fact, in the 2nd edition rules, it was explicitly stated that only male dragon/female humanoid pairings can produce half-dragon children.
* The ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' have numerous half-dwarves, which have a dwarf father and a human mother. Female dwarfs multiply slowly so that this breed would probably die out if they did not mate with humans. Half-dwarfs that are human to the other half differ only slightly from pure dwarves.
** There are also half-fiends. A cambion is born when a male demon and a female human get a child together. An alu-fiend, on the other hand, is the child of a male human and a female demon (mostly a [[CuteMonsterGirl succubus]]).
** In the early days, when the drow were still on the surface, it was playing with most of the half-drow straight. For these were begotten when the soldiers of the drow attacked human or elven settlements and raped the women there.
*** But in the time since the drow have been banished to the underdark, there seems to be more instances where it is inverted. Female drow have sex with each when they are hoping for greater power for themselves or their family, and are also commanding their slaves in their bed (which is also nothing more than a rape).
** Wulfgar, a friend of Drizzt, was abducted and raped by succubi, and had several children with them.
** Another friend of Drizzt later has a child with a female dragon.
* Illiyan Nastase in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' was a half-Eldar (fathered by an Eldar mercenary on a human female) SpaceMarine who served as the {{Ultramarines}}' Chief Librarian and Astropath. EarlyInstallmentWeirdness doesn't begin to describe how incompatible this is with current canon.

* Dionysus of Creator/{{Euripides}}'s ''Theatre/{{Bacchae}}''. Interestingly, his case is the result of tragic romance, as opposed to how most of Zeus's children were conceived... The fact that his aunts and cousin deny his divine parentage sparks the conflict of the ancient play.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Dante and Vergil from ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'', born of the demon Sparda and his human wife Eva. The ContinuityReboot ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' changes this, where Dante and Vergil's mom is revealed to be an angel.
* ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'' [[spoiler:Leah is the daughter of a human mother, Adria, and a demon father, [[DemonLordsandArchdevils Diablo]]. She was conceived by them to be her father's [[DemonicPossession host]] for his attack [[HellInvadesHeaven on heaven]]]].
* Laharl from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' is the product of the demon king's marriage to a human witch.
* Cecil and [[spoiler: Golbez]] in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV''; human mother, Lunarian father.
* Terra's mom and dad in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI''. He's an esper, she's a human.
* Seymour from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX''. Daddy was a made-up, vaguely plantish-elvish critter called a Guado. [[spoiler: It, ah, [[ParentalAbandonment caused]] [[OmnicidalManiac problems]], one might say.]]
* Lilisette, from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has a Hume Mother and a Elvaan Father.
* Alucard from ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}''. His nonhuman dad is {{Dracula}}.
* Naja from ''VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction'', his nonhuman father is the previous Lupus Rex.
* In ''VideoGame/PuzzleQuest: Challenge of the Warlords'', Syrus Darkhunter has an elven dad and a human mom, and is discriminated against by the elves of Silvermyr because of it.
* Hakha is ''VideoGame/{{Killzone}}'' is half-Heghan, half-human. It's never stated which parent is which but Rico suggested shoving his Chaingun up his papa's butt, [[ConversationalTroping presuming that he was Helghan from his father's side]]. Strangely, at one point, Rico tells Hakha that a bunch of Helghast [[EliteMooks Elites]] "look just like [his] mama!"
* Kokonoe in ''Videogame/BlazBlue'' has a human mother (Nine) and a cat father (Jubei), which explains her nekomata appearance.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' invokes this trope, with Hojo trying to pair Red XIII with Aerith; they're both nonhuman, but Aerith is basically a humanoid with special powers, while Red XIII is an IntellectualAnimal.
* ''Videogame/{{Octodad}}'', in which the main character is... An octopus who is a father to human children. In ''Dadliest Catch'', [[spoiler:when his family finally learns his secret, his son asks where did he and his sister come from, leading to an EverybodyLaughsEnding]].
* In ''VideoGame/{{God of War|Series}}'', the anti-hero protagonist, Kratos, is the demigod son of Zeus, King of Olympus and All the Gods, and a mortal woman. [[spoiler: Zeus overthrew his own father - Kronos, the King of the Titans - and seized control of all Creation. After Kratos slays Ares and is anoited the new God of War, Zeus betrays and murders his son to prevent him from visiting the same fate upon his father. Ironically, Zeus' pre-emptive strike becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy; Kratos is reanimated by the vengeful Titans and leads them in a war on the Gods that culminates with Zeus' destruction and the fall of Olympus.]]
* Erana in ''VideoGame/QuestForGlory'' had a human mother and a [[TheFairFolk faerie]] father, per WordOfGod.
* [[spoiler:Eriko's dad]] in ''VideoGame/{{Illbleed}}''. It's never explained exactly ''what'' he is, but he clearly isn't human.
* The ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' series has the protagonist, most antagonists, and a whole pile of others who are only seen briefly or just hinted at, as the children of Bhaal, god of murder. The main antagonist of the first game has a human mother as does [[spoiler:Imoen]]. Some of the others that appear in the games have non-human mothers, such as giants and dragons, but many of those only shown briefly in flashbacks and the like appear human. The race of the PC's mother is up to the player.
* In ''Videogame/ArcTheLadTwilightOfTheSpirits'', [[spoiler:fraternal twins Kharg and Darc]] were born to a human mother and a Deimos father. Both of them possess the same magical powers as their father, but only one inherited obvious Deimos features at birth. The other looks completely human [[spoiler:until he sprouts wings]].
* Played straight for two generations in the backstory of ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'', with a D'ni and his half-human son both marrying humans from Earth's surface. ''Three'' generations, if Rivenese are also considered human.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'':
** Kaden and Keaton are shapeshifters, turning into a fox and a wolf respectively. Their potential wives are all human [[spoiler:except a female Avatar, who is half human]], so their daughters Selkie and Velouria will fit into this trope. If either of them marry Azura, Shigure will fit this trope and inherited their class.
** [[spoiler:Anankos is one of the godlike First Dragons, and the FinalBoss of the game. He's also the father of the PlayerCharacter, who's mother is a human woman named Mikoto.]]
** The male Avatar is half human, with the ability to turn into a dragon. His potential children will end up being a quarter dragon, and inherit his shapeshifting ability. Subverted if he's paired with Velouria or Selkie, who are beast shapeshifters like their fathers.
* Possibly seen in the ''Franchise/DragonAge'' games, depending on how one aspect of ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' is resolved. [[spoiler:If the Warden is male and agrees to participate in the dark ritual with Morrigan (or refuses the ritual but slept with her earlier in the game), he becomes the father of Kieran, her son seen in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition''. If the Warden who fathers Kieran is a dwarf or an elf, the boy is this trope.]]

* In ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' this was the basis for an alien [[http://www.sluggy.com/daily.php?date=070711 breeding an army of drones]].
-->'''College Girl #1:''' If your parents find out you're dating an [[JustForPun illegal alien]] they'll flip.\\
'''College Girl #2''' ''(grinning)''''':''' I ''know!''
* ''{{Webcomic/Schlock|Mercenary}}'' messes with this by [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20000920.html wanting to have Breya's children]]. If they'd gone through with it, the children would have had a female human father, and an asexual alien mother who is otherwise invariably treated as male. He [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/d/20010617.html explains]] the BizarreAlienBiology that that would involve, but the readers [[UnReveal don't get the explanation until two books later]].
** For those of you interested, [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2003-03-19 this is the long and short of it]]. Amorphs 'reproduce' by budding off pieces of themselves and imbuing it with a new personality based off their own and that of the other parent. Basically, a child of Schlock and Breya's would be a new amorph with Schlock's 'genetics' and a mixture of Schlock's and Breya's personality traits.
** An example of the process is Jane, the [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2001-12-23 child of an amorph and Lady Emily, an explorer]].
* In ''{{Webcomic/Drowtales}}'', Ariel's father is a spider, and Rikshakar's father is a dragon. Technically, their mothers are drow, not humans, and despite appearances both are actually aversions, since their parents are just elves who were transformed into their current states.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In the ''TabletopGame/NewVindicators'' universe, all {{Nephilim}} are this, as all the seven fallen Seraphim they are descended from are male who sleep with human woman, almost always with the express purpose of making Nephilim children to use as minions. Played with a little, as the Seraphim can change their forms (one, Semyazza, often appears as a woman) and probably don't have the same sense of gender that humans do. However, no Nephilim has yet been carried to term by a female Fallen.
* ''Literature/TalesOfMU''
** Played straight with the main {{Half Human Hybrid}}s, Mack (demon father) and Steff (elf father).
** Gender-flipped with Steff's half-ogre boyfriend, Viktor.
* ''Literature/WhateleyUniverse'' example: Sara Waite (Carmilla) had a (mostly) human mother and a powerful lust demon for a father. Dad liked mom so much that Sara is his ''only'' child.
* The Loved Ones in ''Fanfic/{{Day of the Barney}}''. When the girls that Barney has taken under his wing as his Special Friends turn thirteen, they are taken away and out of sight. Meanwhile, Barney rapes them and impregnates them with the Loved Ones; the girls die giving birth to them.
* ''Website/ChatoyantCollege'':[[spoiler: Corrie finds out, in Books 5 and 6, that her (missing) father is actually a werewolf. The reason why he was not within her life is because her mother chucked him out because he neglected to mention that fact until she was pregnant]].

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Ashi from ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. Her mother is human, her father is Aku.
* Raven, from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. As mentioned in the Comic Book section, she is half demon.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''
** As with the Mythology example, according to WordOfGod, this is played straight with Merlin in this universe, being the son of [[TheFairFolk Lord Oberon]] and a human woman. This is also gender-flipped with [[spoiler: Fox]], who has a human father and [[spoiler: Titania]] as her mother. [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Not that she knows this.]]
*** It is also inverted with the son of Xanatos and Fox. He has a human as a father and a half-fairy as a mother, and thus is a [[UnevenHybrid quarter of a fairy]].
** Thailog was grown in a lab, but refers to Sevarius (the geneticist involved), Xanatos (the financier and mentor), and Goliath (the genetic donor) as his three fathers. He later created Delilah, who is 90% Gargoyle (on her mother, Demona's, side) and 10% human (on her mother, Elisa's, side).
** A story involving Anansi features a proud female panther who TheTrickster turned into a human woman who had several children before being permitted to return to her original form.
* In one of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''' ''WesternAnimation/TreehouseOfHorror'' specials, Maggie's father is one of the green tentacled cyclops aliens, Kang, who abducted Marge and impregnated her with some sort of ray.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy'' has Nergal Jr. - his father is (obviously) Nergal, a HumanoidAbomination from the centre of the Earth, and his mother is Aunt Sis.
* Leela and Kif's offspring on ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''.
* Human Tracy + dog Brian = Dylan on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', Marceline's father is a soul-sucking demon who rules the Nightosphere in contrast to her pureblood human mother.
* An often-forgotten part of the backstory of ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse1983'' involved a rocket ship from Earth crashing on Eternia. The pilot goes on to marry the king. So He-Man and his twin sister She-Ra are half Earthling and half Eternian, [[HumanAliens not that you can tell the difference.]]
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'', "Monster Bash" reveals that [[spoiler:Miss Heinous, a.k.a. Meteora Butterfly]] is the child of the humanoid Queen Eclipsa and the beastly monster she took as her lover.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10'' has the eponymous hero meet a couple of these. Ben erroneously believes that he has broken Gwen's computer and subsequently enters a wrestling match to win the prize and replace said computer. There he meets two bipedal mutants who speak admirably about their mother. Later in the episode it's revealed that she's a normal human. The pair even lampshade the trope by saying something along the lines of "Folks say we take more after our pa"

[[folder:Real Life]]
* Many people who are convinced by the theory of [[AncientAstronauts ancient astronauts]] believe that the [[http://www.starchildproject.com/ "starchild"]] is the child of an alien father and a human mother.


[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''Manga/DragonHalf'' has the eponymous half-human half-dragon girl Mink have a human father. This is mostly so one of her friends [[LampshadeHanging can question]] how someone hatched from an egg has a belly button. The series also features Mink's rival Vina, who has a Human Dad and a Slime Mom.
* Krillin and Android 18 are an inversion of the norm for ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', though admittedly she is human, too, just enhanced.
* '' Anime/{{Macross}}'': The children of Max and Milia. He is a human, she is a Zentraedi. They have seven children.
* Chibi-usa of ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' has a human father and a Lunarian (through {{Reincarnation}}) mother.
* Momoko in ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' has a human father and an angel mother. The others love angels are full angels born to human mothers when their bodies, but not their souls, were destroyed.
* Inverted in the manga ''Oh, My Sweet Alien'' a human guy and his alien wife have a child together.
* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' has Isma, whose long dead father was a human and her missing mom was a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent mermaid-like creature called a merrow]].
* ''LightNovel/SundayWithoutGod'' has Ai, whose father was human while her mother was a gravekeeper (basically humanoid, but has the power to grant true death to the deceased).
* In ''Anime/SpiceAndWolf'', Lawrence, an ordinary human, is paired with Holo, a harvest goddess whose natural form is an ''enormous'' wolf. By the end of the series, Holo is pregnant with his child.
* In ''Anime/BloodPlus'' Riku is raped by Diva, which leads her to get twin daughters from him. At this point, Riku is no longer a human, but a vampire. However, he was a human all his life, and a vampire a few days. Diva, on the other hand, was almost 200 years old, [[OurVampiresAreDifferent and was born as a vampire]]. Thus it is in this case a former-human father and a non-human mother.
* Justus from ''LightNovel/ShakuganNoShana'' inverts this trope also. He is the child of a male human and a powerful female [[OurDemonsAreDifferent ''Crimson Lord'']].
* ''LightNovel/TheFamiliarOfZero'' has the half-elf Tiffania. Her father was a human, and her mother was an elf. Outwardly, however, she looks hardly different from a pure elf, except that she has really big breasts (which does not seem to occur with elves) and uses an unusual magic for elves.
* The anime ''LightNovel/IsItWrongToTryToPickUpGirlsInADungeon?'' has Eina Tulle. She is a half-elf, and has a human father and an elven mother.
** You can also see Ais Wallenstein. She is a [[ActionGirl good fighter]], and later it turns out that she is a half-fairy, the daughter of a human man and a female [[TheFairFolk fairy]].

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* Namor the ComicBook/SubMariner is an inversion, but his cousin, Namora, plays it straight.
* In an odd case, ComicBook/{{Superboy}} is the genetically engineered offspring of Franchise/{{Superman}} and ComicBook/LexLuthor. That's HoYay, FoeYay, and Human Dad, Nonhuman Dad.
* The Korean manwha ''Manhwa/FaeriesLanding'' stars a half human half faerie girl who is human on her father's side.
* Pre-Crisis, ComicBook/{{Aquaman}}'s father is a human lighthouse keeper and his mother is an exiled Atlantean princess/outcast.
* Skaar [[spoiler:and his twin brother Hiro-Kala]], born to Bruce Banner, aka [[Comicbook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]], and his alien wife Caiera, a native of the planet Sakaar.
* Creator/HollyBlack's ''ComicBook/TheGoodNeighbors'' inverts it to a Human Dad Faerie Mom ... but female faeries conform to a Western norm of beauty (sometimes a bit goth). Dad is certainly not a RetiredBadass.
* In the 1992 ''Franchise/StarTrek'' graphic novel ''Debt of Honor'' by Creator/ChrisClaremont and Adam Hughes, the Romulan officer T'Kir is revealed to be [[spoiler: the daughter of James Kirk and T'Cel (Claremont's name for the Romulan commander from the original series, who at the same time is revealed to be the daughter of a Vulcan father and a Romulan mother)]].
* Carthoris in ''ComicBook/WarlordOfMars''. His dad is a human from Earth, while his mom is a [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Red Skinned Martian Babe]]. [[AmbiguouslyHuman And there is also the fact his father might not be entirely human either, due to being immortal]].
* Huckleberry in ''ComicBook/{{Shutter}}'' has a dinosaur for a mother, while dad was a normal dude.

* In "{{FanFic/The Secret Life of the Backyard Kids}}," [[PrincelyYoungMan Jorge]] is revealed to have a muggle dad and a wizard mom. However his mom died when he was little. What's more, the story ''also'' inverts LineageComesFromTheFather-[[MagicalNanny Emily]] tells Jorge that wizards can get powers from either their mother or both parents, but never just their father. [[FridgeBrilliance Probably because women are the ones who give birth...]]
* Subverted with Hayden from ''FanFic/RidingTheWaves''. [[spoiler: Played straight with Kai. Sorta.]]
* In several fanfictions of ''Anime/ElfenLied'' are Kouta and Lucy lovers, after she coming back (although Lucy dies in the manga, but it is strongly implied that she survived in the anime). Shortly afterwards, they also have a child or more children. These then also have a human father and a non-human mother.
* ''FanFic/WrittenInTheStars'' occasionally mentions Jane Prime's granddaughter, Roberta Jane Kirk-Scott, whose parents are fully-Human Hamish Scott and [[UnevenHybrid One-Quarter-Vulcan]] Amanda Georgiana Kirk.

[[folder: {{Film}}]]
* In ''Film/TalesFromTheDarksideTheMovie'', in the "Lover's Vow" segment, a man unknowingly marries a gargoyle who's taken on human form. In a variant of the "yuki-onna" scenario (see Mythology below), both the wife and their two kids turn into gargoyles when he breaks a promise to her.
* Here is the film different from the anime. In ''Film/BloodTheLastVampireHunter'' Saya is a dhampir, and she chases since 400 years vampires. She is the daughter of a male human and the vampire queen.
* In ''Film/SeventhSon'' there are Tom and Alice. They both have humans as fathers and witches as mothers (in this film are [[WitchSpecies witches another species than humans]]).

* Creator/JimButcher likes this one -- in his ''Literature/CodexAlera'' books, this trope is inverted in [[spoiler:First Lord's Fury]] when [[spoiler:Kitai, a non-human Marat woman, has a child with Tavi, a human man]].
* Inverted in all cases in Creator/JRRTolkien's Middle-earth (''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', etc.) and the films based on them: The father is always the more 'mundane', the mother the more 'exotic' parent: a few human males marry elven women, one elven male (Thingol) marries a female angel (Melian), and one mostly-human male (Aragorn) marries one elf-human-angel hybrid woman (Arwen), but the reverse never happens. The closest it comes is when the human-elf-angel hybrid Dior marries a purely elven woman, but he's still the more mortal of the two. Additionally, the various misfortunes befalling the families and children of these unions are never a result of the [[MalignedMixedMarriage mixed marriage being rejected by their respective societies]]. The ''one'' known example of a female human and male elf falling in love never married, because he (Galadriel's brother Aegnor) believed a MayflyDecemberRomance would only be even more painful than remaining apart (which noticeably never stopped Arwen or numerous other female elves). Aegnor's refusal becomes [[HilariousInHindsight rather funny since he ended up dying long before Andreth,]] and they remain apart but forever pining for each other [[TearJerker even in death.]]
* Inverted in ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime'', in which the (female) AnthropomorphicPersonification of Time bore a child to a mortal man.
* Inverted in ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'', with Tanis. Yes, his father was a rampaging pillager who raped his mother while raiding her village. No, his mother wasn't human, she was an elf. [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters His father was the human one.]]
* ''Literature/HarryPotter''
** A notable inversion: groundskeeper Hagrid is revealed mid-way through the series (to the surprise of practically no one, except Ron) to be half-giant; his father, a wizard, was entirely human, but his mother was a giantess (it's best not to consider the logistics of it).
** Fleur is an inversion herself; her grandmother was a veela and her mother is the one that is part veela.
* Implied future inversion: In ''Literature/TheElenium'' and ''Literature/TheTamuli'' trilogies by Creator/DavidEddings, it's strongly implied that [[spoiler:Sparhawk's daughter Danae will marry the young thief Talen when she grows up. Their children will fit this trope, since Danae is really the Child-Goddess Aphrael]].
* Damsel from ''Literature/SoonIWillBeInvincible'' has a human father and a GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe mother, but was created in a laboratory, as her parents were reproductively incompatible.
* In ''Literature/TheMagiciansNephew,'' the epilogue mentions that King Frank and Queen Helen, the only two humans to remain in Narnia immediately after its creation, have two sons who both marry nymphs, thus founding the original royal houses of Narnia and Archenland.
* Going back to Creator/DavidEddings and the world of ''Literature/TheBelgariad'' and ''Malloreon'', an odd twist combined with an inversion. Eventually fleshed out in the prequel novel ''Belgarath the Sorcerer''. Dryads (forest nymphs, in line with the name) are considered humanoid monsters, but they have the ability to have children with humans. An entire line of Tolnedran emperors take on Dryad wives. Thing is, the results aren't {{Half Human Hybrid}}s. Male children are human while female children are Dryads (this is because Dryads are AlwaysFemale, they ''need'' human males for reproduction). This is eventually shown to have carried through to [[spoiler:Ce'Nedra, the latest of the line. She ''is'' a Dryad, and she eventually has children that keep to that trend]].
* Inverted in ''Literature/TheFightForHome'' as Sarah Collins is the child of a Silician mother and human father. However she winds up being raised by her human father and has been brought up believing she is full human.
* Ryadd Eleis from the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'', whose mother was a goddess and [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragon shapeshifter]] who raped a human man. Granted, he was unwillingly possessed by a wyval at that moment, but the point still stands.
* In ''[[Literature/DanShambleZombiePI Slimy Underbelly]]'', the BigBad villain is the product of a female EldritchHorror's affair with a human male.
* The young girl Merle from ''Literature/DarkReflectionsTrilogy'' was born between a human male and a female Sphinx (which could but shapeshift into a human). However, she appears to be an ordinary girl without special powers.
* The main characters of ''Literature/ChildrenOfTheLamp'', John and Philippa, are the children of a djinn woman and a human man.
* The ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' has Boba Fett. He marries a kiffar woman, and has with her a half-kiffar daughter. She also marries a human, and gets a [[UnevenHybrid quarter-kiffar daughter]].
* The ''Literature/HisDarkMaterials'' has the witches. They are always female, and mate with human men. When the children are boys, they are ordinary humans, but when they are girls, they become witches.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* Inverted in ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'', where Wataru is the son of a Fangire woman (Maya) and a human man (Otoya). There doesn't seem to be anything that would stop Fangire and humans from mating except for the rules of the species.
** But played straight in the ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' version, where AR Wataru had a Fangire father and human mother.
* ''Series/{{Bewitched}}''. The show inverts this trope when Darren and Samantha have their baby Tabitha.
* ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' uses this, depending on whether you view witches as human or nonhuman. If they're nonhuman, the trope is inverted in the case of Prue, Piper, and Phoebe (human dad/nonhuman mom). If they're human, the trope is played straight in the case of Paige (human mom/nonhuman dad). If they are human, Piper's sons and Phoebe's children have this true about them as well. Whether they're human or not, the trope is inverted in the case of Paige's children, since she married a "mortal" human, Henry, and is half Whitelighter (and thus, technically, nonhuman). Of course, Paige, as well as Piper's sons Wyatt and Chris, is half ''dead person'', so it isn't clear how that works, but their fathers are still nonhuman.
** Later, you also sees Max Franklin, a boy who is the son of an ordinary human and a witch.
*** The Canon explicitly states that witches are not half-human beings. If a parent is a witch (usually the mother), then the child is also a witch.
** Brandon, the half-warlock from the first season, played this trope straight as well.
** The series also has half-demons. Demons often mate with humans because their descendants can be inconspicuous walk among the humans. Half-demons have many demonic forces, but also a human soul, so that they can feel feelings like love and decide for the good (even if the temptations of evil are very strong).
*** The first half-demon you see, Cole Turner, inverts this trope. His father was a human and his mother was a demon.
*** The second half-demon in the series, a manticore-baby, also inverts it.
*** But the third half-demon, Sirk, just plays it straight. His father was a mighty demon, and his mother was an ordinary human.
* Both inverted and invoked in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. The inversion is obvious first: Boomer is a Cylon. Then we learned who it was invoked by: [[spoiler: Teyril & Cally]]. That second actually becomes an aversion [[spoiler: when we learn that the boy is actually Hotdog and Cally's son - two humans]],
* Inverted in ''Series/BabylonFive'', when John and Delenn give birth to David Sheridan. Many episodes reference extensive medical intervention that is needed despite Delenn's transformation in order for this to happen, so it's not likely that humans and Minbari are naturally interfertile. It also helps that Delenn is [[spoiler:descended from Sinclair who has turned himself into a Minbari named Valen]].
* Commonly inverted and subverted in the [[Franchise/StarTrek Star Trek]] universe - [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise T'Pol and Trip's son Lorian and daughter Elizabeth]], [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Deanna Troi]], [[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Benjamin Sisko (indirectly)]], and [[Series/StarTrekVoyager B'Elanna Torres]] all have non-human mothers and human fathers. Benjamin and B'Elanna also face the problems inherent to the trope: Benjamin's mother walked out on him when he was a little boy, and B'Elana grew up resenting her mother for driving her father away.
** Averted with Kirk's son in the "Shatnerverse" novels, whose mother is a genetically-engineered Klingon-Romulan-human hybrid. According to Spock, the kid is also Vulcan by virtue of his Romulan blood. The boy turns out to be [[spoiler:genetically identical to the {{Precursors}} found by Picard in "The Chase", even though he should be missing many other genetic markers, such as that of the Cardassians]].
* Andy Bellefleur's half-fairy, quadruplet daughters on ''Series/TrueBlood''. Their mother is Maurella, Sookie's fairy cousin, who gave birth after her accelerated fairy pregnancy and promptly left her babies with Andy in the human realm.
* In ''Series/DoctorWho'', the Doctor's granddaughter Susan, a Time Lady, marries a human man. The ''Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse'' shows us Susan's half-human son Alex.
* In ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' there are Robin Wood, who is the son of a slayer. He is the child of a male human and a female "metahuman".
** The series also has a female demon named She-Mantis. She assumes a human form, but she actually takes the form of a giant mantis. She rapes virginal men, preferably male teenagers, and then puts her eggs off. The offspring, however, are not half-demons, but the same creatures as the demon.

[[folder:Mythology and Religion]]
* ''Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh'', where Gilgamesh's mother was a Goddess named Ninsun and his [[ExtraParentConception two fathers]] were another God and a mortal man, which incidentally would have been one of the first cases of a human hybrid recorded in literature.
* While [[Myth/ClassicalMythology Greek mythology]] plays it straight most of the time, there are many inversions of this trope as well. Achilles is a notable one. Usually a demigod's father is one of the male JerkassGods who [[HandsomeLech bed anything in a skirt]], but his father is a human HappilyMarried (WeAreAsMayflies notwithstanding) to a nymph. Furthermore, Hercules and so on are usually taken to owe their heroic power to divine inheritance. Achilles' invulnerability doesn't come from this.
** An [[EnforcedTrope Enforced Inversion]] in Achilles' case. His mother, Thetis, caught the eye of Zeus, until Gaia predicted that any son that Thetis bore would be more powerful than his father. Zeus wanted to avoid that, so he dropped Thetis like a hot potato, and (if memory serves) forbade her from marrying a god. He actually set her up with a mortal man who was described as being weak (so that Thetis's child wouldn't be that much stronger) but he was BadassNormal enough to hold onto her no matter what ugly form she took.
*** In ''Literature/TheIliad'', Achilles' mother was Thetis but his great-grandfather was Zeus. When boasting about his godly parentage, it's always his descent from Zeus he mentions, never his (much more direct) descent from Thetis. In this sense, he plays this trope straight.
** Also from the Trojan cycle there is the Ethiopian king Memnon (who ends up being killed by Achilles), the son of the goddess Eos (rose-fingered Dawn) and Tithonos, a brother of king Priam of Troy. Memnon's brother Emathion had previously been killed by Heracles. According to some sources, Phaeton was the son of Eos and the demigod Kephalos (son of Hermes and Herse).
** The goddess Demeter and her mortal lover Iasion had a son, Plutos, god of wealth. According to other authors, Demeter also had other children from mortal lovers.
** Various non-Homeric sources state that Odysseus fathered children by Circe (a goddess) and/or Calypso (a nymph) when he was held prisoner by them. According to the most common version, Telegonos, son of Odysseus and Circe, in the end accidentally killed his father. According to some Italic authors (but not Virgil), Circe then married Telemachus (son of Odysseus and Penelope) and gave birth to Latinus, who eventually became Aeneas' father-in-law.
** From ''Literature/TheAeneid'', Aeneas. Not only was Venus his mother, according some legend his human father Anchises was half-naiad on his mother's side too. In any case, being the ancestor of the Julian family (and consequently, Gaius Julius Caesar), this divine parentage was vital to Roman CulturalPosturing. However, Aeneas (in Greek: Aineias) had already been known as the son of Aphrodite (Venus) and Anchises to Homer (in the ''Iliad''), Hesiod (''Theogony'') and the "Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite" centuries before Virgil.
* Inverted with the most popular legend about the [[{{Youkai}} Yukionna]] in Japan. A man married a Yukionna disguised as a human woman and has several kids with her.
** Myth/JapaneseMythology would invert this all the time, especially with myths about the kitsune. A kitsune would marry a human man and have a happy life and numerous kids with him, only for her cover to be blown by a person/a dog/alcohol, and forcing her to leave her husband and children forever. Depending on the story, either Love Conquers All and the kitsune wife comes back to be with her husband at night (when no one can see her), or [[DownerEnding she leaves forever]].
** A lot of these pairings end with the non-human mother leaving, generally after her husband breaks a promise like [[spoiler: talking about the yuki-onna after being warned to never speak of her (despite the only person he told was his wife who ''was'' the yuki-onna)]], discovering her real, embarrassing form after warning him not to look such as [[spoiler: becoming a huge dragon to give birth (the baby was a normal human) or a crane to weave feather-light cloth]], or discovering she'd been deceived like [[spoiler: the heavenly maiden whose magic clothes were stolen by the man she eventually married and had kids with]].
* There are also the Scandinavian myths of Huldra (female forest-spirits), who will occasionally marry and start families with human men. The same thing goes for selkies in Scottish mythology. Selkies are human woman/seal shape-shifters, who will do the bidding of any man who hides their "seal-skin".
* In one Lakota creation story, the first two people are both male, so they take wives from the animal kingdom. Eventually, they stop doing so when this [[EldritchAbomination starts creating monsters]].
* ''Literature/HrolfKrakisSaga'' has an inversion where the main character's half-sister is half-elf on her mother's side. It also featured Bodvar Bjarki who might be a straight example, as his father was cursed to turn into a bear by day and no longer fully human due to that curse.
* According to some [[WordOfDante Judeo-Christian traditions]] Samael employed a quartet of fallen angels to trick and seduce men, raping them in the event that does not work. The offspring from these unions is raised for the purpose plaguing mankind, though they ''sometimes'' turn out to be somewhat decent people despite their heritage.
* According to a French folk tale, the powerful Lusignan family was descended from Melusine (sometimes spelled "Merlusigne"), a female water-spirit who married a knight but had to leave him when he once saw her in her true form.

[[folder:Tabletop RPG]]
* Commonly averted in the cases of Half-Elves in earlier editions of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons''. Background material tend to have a large portion of half elves being the result of rape on Elven women by human raiders or mercenaries, seeing as how OurElvesAreBetter, thus male (and female) Elves tend not to seek out females outside of other Elves. This is especially common in the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' setting.
** Inverted with hags and hagspawn, given that hags are an [[OneGenderRace all female race]]. With [[VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2 one known canonical exception]], hags usually kidnap and rape human males, then eat them and bear their offspring. Male children are hagspawn, while female children are hags.
** [[HarpingOnAboutHarpies Harpies]] are, like hags, an all-female race that is often portrayed as relying on human(oid) mates to procreate. Again, like hags, their partners are usually involuntary and/or don't always live through the experience.
** In 2e, there was an obscure all-female race known as the ''weredragons'', who depended on human men to father their daughters.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' involves many all-female OneGenderRace species that thusly use human and demihuman men to father their daughters. Harpies, hags, [[EnthrallingSiren sirens]], thriae queens (giant bee women), {{medusa}}s... of course, the vast majority of these species also [[DeathBySex kill and eat their partners after mating]], which is ''why'' they remain designated as "monsters".
* Because the stereotype for Half-Orcs in D&D and Pathfinder is to make them a ChildByRape and thusly playing this trope straight, a few prominent half-orcs avert the first trope and usually do so by inverting this trope. One of the oldest examples is from the ''TabletopGame/{{Planescape}}'' setting, where the Factol of the Bleakers was born between a loving couple of human man and female orc.
* ''TabletopGame/{{Scion}}'' averts this, as a Scion can be the child of a human woman and god or the child of a human man and a goddess.
** In fact, the vast majority of the goddesses are just as busy making Scions as their male counterparts. Even ''Hera'', in the Dodekatheon, is known to take human men to give her Scion children. Of the original six pantheons (Pesedjet, Dodekatheon, Atzlanti, Aesir, Amatsukami, Loa), only three deities refuse to make Scions naturally at all: Artemis (devoutly lesbian; when she wants sex with a human, she's always chasing skirts), Athena (who for some reason just can't shake that "virgin goddess" thing) and Osiris (who is less unwilling and more unable; he's castrated).
*** In fact, given the existence of an Epic Appearance perk that allows completely functional {{genderbending}}, and which is the canonical source of one sample Daeva scion (mom was a human; "dad" was Kali genderbent into a male form), there may actually be some Artemis scions who were actually born, not adopted.

* In the Creator/GilbertAndSullivan operetta ''Theatre/{{Iolanthe}}'', Strephon has a human father and a fairy mother, and consequently is half-human from the waist down. At one point he laments that he will have to watch half of him grow old while the other stays young, and it's fairly obvious [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar what he's referring to here]].

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''VideoGame/DragonFable'', inverted for [[MerlinAndNimue Nythera]], who's half-dragon on her mother's side, and [[BountyHunter Zhoom]], half-sand elf from his mother.
* Inverted for VideoGame/{{Shantae}}, who has a genie mommy and a human daddy. The ending of ''Risky's Revenge'' implies [[spoiler: her father might have been more than a normal human, as Shantae's PrehensileHair is not a genie power]].
* Averted in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', for a certain definition of "mother" and "father." Half-anything hybrids are impossible due to each species being very different from each other. The only exception is with the Asari. They're a mono-gendered race that reproduces by melding their nervous system with that of someone else; this act scrambles some of the DNA in one of their eggs, producing the genetic diversity necessary for continuing adaptation. The asari is always the "mother" if one takes a mother to be the one to bear a child.
* Flipped in ''VideoGame/PoPoLoCrois'', in which Pietro and his sister are indeed half-dragon, [[spoiler:with a draconic ruler being their grandfather, at that]], the ''mother'' is actually the dragon.
* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', Aerith's father was human and her mother was [[spoiler:Cetra, an ancient race that had long since left the planet]].
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' plays it both ways. Yuna's father is human and her mother is an Al Bhed, a race of atheists with swirling green eyes. She also has a relationship with Tidus, who is [[spoiler:a dream]].
* The ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' series plays with this trope occasionally.
** Played with in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral'', depending on your pairings : indeed, characters with Holy Blood can be seen as not totally human, [[spoiler: since they're the descendants of warriors who got special powers by drinking the blood of ancient Dragons and making pacts with them to fight an Evil Empire]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe'':
*** Nils and Ninian are the children of a female Ice Dragon named Aenir and a human, [[spoiler: Nergal]]
*** Roy can be the result of this if Eliwood is paired with Ninian, making him quarter-Dragon.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius'' has a straight example with the [[spoiler: Lehran and Altina]] line, since the former was a black heron laguz and the latter was a human, but is inverted with [[spoiler: Soren's]] parents, since his mom is a black dragon and his dad is a human.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'':
*** The game mostly uses BoldlyComing for most of its shape shifters. The only way this can be played straight is if a [[PlayerCharacter female Avatar]] marries Yarne, causing the resulting male Morgan to be part Taguel.
*** Nowi (a dragon) and Panne (Taguel) can marry human men and have HalfHumanHybrid children (Nah and the aforementioned Yarne, respectively) with them... including a [[PlayerCharacter male Avatar]]. [[spoiler: Similarly, Tiki (also a dragon) can marry a male Avatar and be the mother of a female Morgan.]]
*** Of course, [[spoiler: the Avatar being the Avatar of an evil dragon god]] makes every pairing [[spoiler: including him or her]] this trope.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has any of the children produced by a female Avatar (except Selkie and Velouria, who have nonhuman fathers). Their grandfather [[spoiler:Anankos]] was a dragon, a female Avatar will be half human, and the children will end up being a quarter dragon, with the ability to assume a dragon form.
* Played straight in ''[[VideoGame/LunarTheSilverStar Lunar: Silver Star Story]]'' with Jessica's beastman father and human mother. Potentially inverted with Jessica and her love interest Kyle - although they don't have children during the story, it seems inevitable that they will live happily ever after (in a SlapSlapKiss sort of way).
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/{{Tales of Symphonia}}'' with Raine and Genis Sage, who had an elf mother and a human father.
** Played straight with [[spoiler: Lloyd]] who has a human mother and [[spoiler: angel]] father. Played with if you realize [[spoiler: his father Kratos was originally a human who transformed into an angel]].
* ''VideoGame/BreathOfFireII'' inverted this trope. The hero is a child of a human priest and a dragon: [[spoiler: that white dragon sealing the entrance of the caves at the back mountains]].
* The ''Franchise/DragonAge'' setting inverts this trope with the elves, who can interbreed with the humans but the offspring is apparently fully human, or close enough. Given their status as EnslavedElves, it almost always means Human father, Elven mother.
** And then it's played straight with the Darkspawn, specifically, the [[BabyFactory Broodmothers]]. [[FateWorseThanDeath Maker]], the [[WasOnceAMan Broodmothers]]...
* The epilogue of ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' indicates that the male player character can end up having a son with Viconia (so long as you complete that romance and choose to remain mortal), so he is half drow on his mother's side and half human/surface elf/whatever on his father's. Same with Aerie in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII''. The child is half winged elf, half whatever-the-player-is.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIV''. TheChosenOne's mother was a [[OurAngelsAreDifferent Zenithian]], while daddy was a mere mortal woodcutter [[spoiler: who got incinerated by the Zenith Dragon before he forced mommy to abandon her half-human infant on earth. Some FantasticRacism there..]]. On top of this, mommy is still alive, and reveals the whole story while trying to hide her own identity... poorly, as [[TearJerker she can hardly hold back the tears while talking about how painful it would be for]] [[IHaveThisFriend the hero's mother to see her child again]].
** Also inverted in ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVIII'', which has a similar setup for [[spoiler: the hero's]] parents, with the added twist that daddy was also [[spoiler: royalty]], making this legacy even more extra-special. {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d by Angelo after TheReveal, when he makes a comment to the effect of "One is special enough; being ''both'' is just RUDE."
* Gender-flipped in ''VideoGame/{{Onimusha}} 2: Samurai's Destiny'' - Jubei Yagyu's mother is an Oni who fell in love with his human father.
* One of the MultipleEndings of ''[[VideoGame/StarOceanTheSecondStory Star Ocean: The Second Story]]'' has one of [[spoiler: Claude and Rena]]'s endings with the latter, [[spoiler: a Nedian]], announcing to the former that she's pregnant with their child.
* Inverted in ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear''. Dizzy's father was a human (unknown, but often thought by fans to be either Kliff Undersn or Sol Badguy, [[FanDumb despite the latter also being a gear]] -- or better said a human scientist who became a gear) and her mother was a gear (Justice). In ''Guilty Gear 2'', Sin's father is human (Ky Kiske) and mother is a "gear" ([[spoiler: hinted to be Dizzy]]).
* In ''VideoGame/TheSims2'', your male Sims can get [[MisterSeahorse pregnant]] by male aliens. Of course, this means that the human, despite being male, plays the "Mom" role, so this trope arguably still applies.
* Inverted by Eddie Riggs from ''VideoGame/BrutalLegend'', whose mother is the Emperor of the demons, Succoria, and whose father is the leader of the human rebellion, Riggnarok.
* The UpdatedRerelease of ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' has [[{{Catgirl}} Rutile]], whose mother is a Nekomata demon.
* Django and Sabata from ''VideoGame/{{Boktai}}'' were the children of Ringo, a human, and Mani, one of the [[OurVampiresAReDifferent Immortals]] and the sister of [[BigBad Hel]] to boot! One line states it's the reason the boys can come into contact with dark matter and Klorofolun without becoming undead and is [[FanWank Fan Wanked]] as the reason why Django could become a half-vampire.
* The [[Videogame/DivinityDragonCommander Dragon Commander]] is a bastard child of the King of Rivellon and an ancient dragon; albeit one who seduced the king while in human form. In-game, the Commander can morph into a massive dragon to aid his armies in battle.

* Consciously inverted in ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'', for the half-orc ninja (Therkla). Not only was her father human and her mother an orc, but they broke the stereotype the second time by [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0555.html actually being in love.]] [[SickeninglySweethearts Sickeningly so.]]
** Played straight for [[spoiler:[[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0842.html the Draketooths.]]]]
* So far, inverted in ''Webcomic/YetAnotherFantasyGamerComic''. We've seen some five half-breeds so far; each time, the nonhuman was the mother.
* Usually averted in ''DelaTheHooda'', as well as in the more erotic comics made by Style Wager and Greg Older. In human/furry relationships, the human is usually a man, and the furry is a woman.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Darken}}'', Mink and her siblings' mother is a huge dragon, though she is often seen in a human form. Since they're all half-dragons, their father is presumably some manner of humanoid.
* ''Webcomic/{{Roommates}}'' (and it's SpinOff ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'') plays with this. From the main characters two have supernatural ancestry, Javert and Jareth. Javert is an inversion, he has a WitchSpecies mother and a fully human father (and she doesn't like to talk about the relationship). Jareth a subversion, he has a [[TheFairFolk Fair Folk]] father and a WitchSpecies mother, but even as she looks human and was mortal once but ''isn't''. Oh, and both have powers, Jareth is a highly powerful Fair Folk, Javert passes as human most of the time but we shouldn't underestimate his TrueSight + AntiMagic combination.
* Inverted in the Fur Will Fly webcomic with Brad (human male) and Paige (mouse female), who have a daughter that takes after her mother in appearance and her father in personality.
* Inverted in ''Webcomic/TheDreadful'' with devikin, who are always female and breed true with human males, giving birth to identical devikin daughters.
* In ''Webcomic/ScandinaviaAndTheWorld'', New South Wales is portrayed as the daughter of Wales, a male human, and New Zealand, a female sheep.
* Inverted for [[spoiler:Antimony herself]] in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt''. Her father is human [[AbusiveParents (in the physical sense)]], and her mother is the descendant of [[ElementalEmbodiment a fire elemental]]; the latter is mostly human due to many generations of HalfHumanHybrid-ization, but still has strong etheric powers linked to her element, and [[spoiler:an unfortunate tendency to die after reproducing, "passing on her flame" to her daughter]]. Coyote snarkily lampshades how [[HotSkittyOnWailordAction "interesting"]] the original marriage of man and elemental must have been.
* In ''Webcomic/{{Erma}}'', the titular character is the elementary school-aged daughter of a human father and StringyHairedGhostGirl mother. They're shown to be a perfectly normal, loving family like any other.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* In ''Roleplay/TheGamersAlliance'', the human cleric Delora and the demon warrior Omaroch are the parents of the half-demon children Refan and Kareth.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/StargateInfinity'' had Ec'co, who got the gender-flipped version of this, as his father is human. In a further subversion, his species is only remotely human. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stargate-infinity.jpg see this picture]]? He's the green guy all the way on the right. And the females aren't that much different from the males.
* Inverted in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaidIIReturnToTheSea''. Melody's father Eric is human; her mother Ariel was born a mermaid.
* [[spoiler:Roxy]] of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' has this with an inverse of a father for a human and a [[spoiler:fairy for a mother]].
* Gwen and Ben from ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'' have a human grandfather and [[EnergyBeings alien]] grandmother.
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' has [[spoiler:Margaret's robin mother and human father. She's actually a robin (on the outside, at least) rather than human]].
* Inverted for the Franchise/{{DCAU}} character Warhawk, who is the son of the human John Stewart and the Thanagarian Hawkgirl.
* The titular character from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has a human father, but his mother is a Gem, an alien race of nigh-immortal beings. Though she could have given birth to a normal human, his mother Rose Quartz gave up her physical form so he could gain her powers and exist as an unique hybrid of human and alien.
* ''WesternAnimation/SongOfTheSea'' has its central family be a human father and selkie mother. Son Ben is human (referred to as such several times during the movie), but daughter Saoirse is a selkie like her mum.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' one sees a clone which is deserted from his unit, and is a Twi'lek woman together. And they have two children who are half-human hybrids.
* ''AmericanDragonJakeLong'', with a bit of a wrinkle: Jake's mother's family have the power to transform into dragons, and he and his sister have inherited it, but because the power of transformation [[RecessiveSuperGenes skips a generation]], his mother is technically human herself.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheAnimatedSeries'' you can see Blade. He chases his mother, who is a pure vampire, but he himself is a half-vampire. His father is never mentioned, but because Blade is half a human and his mother is a pure vampire, that does not leave many possibilities open.
** In the films, Blade became a half-vampire because his pregnant mother was bitten by a vampire. In the first film, he later also meets her as a vampire. However, it may be that this variant was too savage for the creators of a children's series, so that they would leave open the possibility of being born in the natural way.
* [[spoiler: Keith]] from ''WesternAnimation/VoltronLegendaryDefender'' is a [[HalfHumanHybrid Half-Human Hybrid]] with a human father and [[MissingMom long-lost alien mother]].
** [[spoiler: On a mission, he meets a fellow Marmora member named Krolia, who confesses to him that she's his mom. It's implied that Kolivan knew Keith's parentage the whole time but never bothered to tell him.]]

* Councillor Simon Parkes, from Whitby (UK?), [[http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/10488568.Whitby_councillor_claims_to_have_fathered_alien_child/ claimed he fathered "Zarka" with the Cat Queen]]. This does not necessarily mean Zarka really exists, but Simon Parkes claims she does (and the Cat Queen for that matter).
* Non-Africans, who average 5% Neanderthal DNA, do not have any known Y-chromosome genes (which are passed down from the father) which are of Neanderthal origins, which suggests the inverted version may have been the case when humans and neanderthals interbred (or that male hybrids were infertile, making this a case of human dad, hybrid mom).
