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

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



[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* The Monstrels of the ''Manga/RosarioToVampire'' manga are hybrids of two monsters, and are therefore the most common type of monster. Ability-wise, they can have anything from [[BladeBelowTheShoulder limb weapons]] to a hypnotic serum that they can inject.
* Urd of ''Manga/AhMyGoddess'' is half-god, half-demon. In fact, her parents are the series' versions of {{God}} and {{Satan}}.
* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' [[spoiler:Goku Black (who already had the soul of Zamasu, a Kai, and the body of a Saiyan after performing GrandTheftMe on his timeline's Goku) and Future Zamasu [[FusionDance perform Potara Fusion]] to form Merged Zamasu, who is thus a Kai/Saiyan hybrid.]]

[[folder:Card Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering'' has Gaea's Skyfolk (an Elf/Merfolk cross) and Razorfin Hunter (a Goblin/Merfolk cross). Nobody has a clue where either of these came from, or why the Skyfolk can fly when neither Elves nor Merfolk can.

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* ''ComicBook/ElfQuest'' has two half elves.
** Timmorn Yellow-Eyes was the son of a shape-shifted High One (elf) and a wolf. The conflicting instincts of "immortal shapeshifter" and "mortal being with no concept of past or future" in his heritage nearly drove him mad as seen in [[http://elfquest.com/gallery/OnlineComics/index.php?s=TC/TC01 this story]]. By extension his descendants the Wolfriders all have some wolf ancestry as well.
** Two-Edge was half elf and half troll. [[spoiler:His mother Winnowill systematically broke his mind, to the point that he was so conflicted about his species that he staged a war between elves and trolls to decide it.]]
* Marvel Comics has [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Teddy Altman]], (a.k.a. Hulkling). He's the son of [[ComicBook/CaptainMarVell Captain Marvel]] (a Kree) and Princess Anelle (Skrull). As his pink Kree form (looks like a Caucasian human) is his default one, and he's a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifter]], he also hits the 'attractive' option of this trope.
* Also from Marvel, Troll of the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}}, who's half-troll and half-Asgardian.
* Marvel's [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] is actually a hybrid of two different species of gods. He's half-Elder God on his mother Gaea's side. This is the reason he's so much stronger than the other Asgardians.
** Technically, Thor is a combination of 3 species. His mother is an elder goddess, but Odin is half Frost Giant on his mother's side. That makes him a quarter Asgardian, quarter Frost Giant and half Elder God.
* The Asgardian ruling couple, Odin (Ice Giant and Aesir (main species of Asgard) hybrid) and Freyja/Frigga (Vanir (ruling species of Vanaheim)), has three children: Balder (out of wedlock), Aldrif (or Comicbook/{{Angela|MarvelComics}} if you want) and Laussa. Not to mention Odin's various "conquests" around the realms and the children from those (for example Vidar with an Ice Giantess). That's a TangledFamilyTree that puts the Summers' to shame with children crossing to HeinzHybrid territory very fast.
* Gunna Sijurvald aka Troll is half Asgardian on her mother's side and half Troll on her father's side. She looks fully Asgardian but was raised by the Trolls. As a result of her heritage and upbringing, she has the superhuman attributes of the Asgardians and fights with the ferocity of the Trolls.
* Oliver from ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' is half-Viltrumite, a species of superpowered HumanAliens, and half-Thraxian, a species of InsectoidAliens. Viltrumite genes are apparently dominant, because he looked basically like a human, save for his [[AmazingTechnicolorPopulation purple skin]], and even that faded as he got older.
* The entire plotline of ''ComicBook/SaGa'' revolves around Hazel, who is half [[WingedHumanoid Landfallian]] and half [[HornedHumanoid Wreathian]].
* Garona Halforcen from ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'' (but not ''[=WoW=]'') was originally vaguely depicted as half-Orc and half something unknown (often thought to be Human), but the comic reveals that she is really [[spoiler:half-Orc and half-Draenei]].
* In ''Comicbook/GreenLanterns'', Ungaran singer Lizeth Vok (from the same planet as Abin Sur) is "Gulbradian chimera". This means her skin is literally split down the middle, with one half being the bright red generally associated with the race and the other being a lilac shade [[note]]possibly a reference to some colourists making Ungarans more purple, to distinguish them from Korugarans like Sinestro[[/note]]. (Her lilac half also has some kind of facial marking, but given her "rock grrl" look, this is possibly a tattoo.)

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

* ''Literature/SymphonyOfAges'' has Achmed (Dhracian/Firbolg, the product of a rape) and Grunthor (Firbolg/Bengard).
* Lúthien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' was half-Elven and half-Maia. The Maiar are angels which normally don't have real bodies, much less an ability to reproduce. But when the angel Melian fell in love with the elf Thingol, she created a real body for herself, which was apparently biologically elvish. Their daughter looked like an uncommonly beautiful elven woman, but was more than a mere elf. And ''she'' had a son, Dior, with her human husband Beren, the first in a looooong line of HeinzHybrid dudes (culminating in [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Arwen and Aragorn]]).
* Commonplace in the ''Literature/GarrettPI'' novels, the most prominent being the troll/giant "grolls" Doris and Marsha.
* In S.L. Viehl's ''[[Literature/{{Stardoc}} Blade Dancer]]'', all of the "[[WeWillUseWikiWordsInTheFuture ClanChildren]] of Honor" are half-Jorenian. ''Only'' Jory and Kol [[spoiler:(who, perhaps predictably, hook up in the end after confirming that they're ''not'' [[BrotherSisterIncest half-siblings]])]] are HalfHumanHybrids.
* Tourmentine in the fairy tale ''[[http://www.surlalunefairytales.com/authors/aulnoy/1892/beeorangetree.html The Bee and the Orange Tree]]'' is half ogre, half fairy.
* In the Literature/BooksOfTheRaksura, [[spoiler:the Fell]] abduct and rape members of a closely related species [[spoiler: the Raksura]] to produce hybrids with certain powers. In the first book, the antagonists turn out to be [[spoiler: a Fell flight that includes three hybrids with Raksura queen and mentor powers, and who want to continue the project]]; later in the series, we meet hybrids who were raised by the other parent race and are fairly normal youngsters, although their family is understandably secretive about their presence.
* Mary Gentle's Literature/{{Grunts}} has Orc/Halfing hybrids
* ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' has mostly angel/non-angel hybrids, which are [[FantasticRacism disliked]] by many angels, as well as magical A/magical B hybrids (like witch/elf, battle-witch/succubus and such), but they aren't considered anything unusual, as in-universe magical creatures (magicals) are considered as one group by outsiders. The whole "nonhuman hybrid" is zig-zagged with main character, whose both parents are humans, but due to magic in this universe being genetic and huge amount of LegoGenetics, Dora ends up not being human at all.
* Jadis, the villain of ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe,'' is half-Jinn, half-giant, as is her sister. Because of this, she is said to be inhumanly beautiful and taller than average.
* In ''Literature/TheDeathGateCycle'', the minor character [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Vasu]] is a hybrid of two rival WitchSpecies, the Patryns and Sartan (though he primarily identifies with - and leads a community of - the Patryns). This is noteworthy because of the five humanoid races in the setting (Sartan, Patryn, human, elf, dwarf) ''no other'' configuration can produce viable hybrids, implying a level of close kinship between the two races that neither would comfortably admit to[[note]]admittedly, they're both HumanSubspecies and are fully aware of that fact, but then, they can't have kids with baseline humans either...[[/note]]. As a practical matter, the main effect is that Vasu isn't very powerful in either race's magic, but is capable of making use of both, making him [[JackOfAllStats a rather versatile mage]].
* In ''Literature/StarTrekShatnerverse'', the planet Chal is home to an artificial race of Klingon/Romulan hybrids, created during their brief alliance period and then promptly forgotten afterwards. They had some problems merging the two different genotypes and had to use some genetic material from captive humans as a "glue" of sorts, making them {{Heinz Hybrid}}s. In a later novel of the series, Kirk has a baby with Teilani, a woman from Chal. The boy (named Joseph Samuel T'Kol T'Lan Kirk) doesn't fit this trope anymore, since he has more human DNA now. Strangely, all this mixing of Klingon, Romulan, and human DNA (also Vulcan, by virtue of Romulan heritage) has resulted in [[spoiler:making Kirk's son genetically similar to the ancient humanoids, who have seeded the galaxy with life, which allows him to fight the dark matter entity known as [[EldritchAbomination Totality]] via a HeroicSacrifice]].

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

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'':
** There are many creature templates in the vein of "half-dragon", "half-fiend", et cetera. The vast majority of these can be applied to most humanoids, even very exotic or monstrous ones, with predictable results. Bonus: if the base creature type is a valid race for a player character, the DM might allow the templated hybrid to be as well.
** Gazetteer ''The Orcs of Thar'' gives instructions on how to create a hybrid humanoid. In rare cases, the rules can cause the appearance and size of a Kobold, while having all the combat abilities and stats of a Bugbear.
** The fey'ri race from the ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' setting are part elf, part fiend, whilst the Tanarukk from the same setting are orc/demon crossbreeds created by demons as superior warrior-slaves to ordinary orcs.
** The BigBad in one of the early Role Aids supplements for 1st Edition ''AD&D'' was an orc/dwarf hybrid, and the byblow of a dare, an orcish tavern wench, and an ''extremely'' intoxicated dwarf prince.
** The Gully Dwarves of ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' are the descendants of Dwarves and Gnomes. Seeing the results, Dwarves and Gnomes swore to ''never breed again'' on pain of death, as gully dwarves are highly deformed. Sadly, Gully Dwarves by then had grown to sufficient numbers that they were a viable species.
** While actual ''rules'' were scarce, the Realms featured dwelfs (the result of dwarf-elf pairings) in the historic record -- some fairly high profile, like Labrad 'the First Gardener' of Cormanthor.
** Throughout the editions, the Stout and Tallfellow subraces of [[{{Hobbits}} halflings]] have been implied to be the result of interbreeding between the standard Lightfoot halfling and dwarves or elves, respectively.
** Half-ogres are mostly known for being ogre/human, but ogre/orc crossbreeds are also traditional. In fact, AD&D included two different varieties, the Orog and the Ogrillon, depending on whether the ogre was the father or the mother. ''Magazine/{{Dragon}}'' #313 also included a half-ogre template, in which it was stated that human/ogres are the ''least common'' version and are drastically outnumbered by orc/ogres, bugbear/ogres, and gnoll/ogres.
*** In ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'', half-ogres or "Ogrekin" are the result of any mating between an ogre and a humanoid or giant, with one sourcebook featuring sample ogrekin in the form of an ogre/[[OurTrollsAreDifferent ice troll]], an ogre/orc, and an ogre/[[WitchSpecies changeling]].
** The third-party setting ''TabletopGame/KingdomsOfKalamar'', the ultimate setting of ''TabletopGame/HackMaster'', has a race of elf/orc hybrids known as Tel-amhothlans in elvish and as Guruk-vra in orcish.
** Third-party setting ''TabletopGame/{{Midnight}}'' has Dwarrow (dwarf/gnome hybrids), Dworgs (dwarf/gnome hybrids - [[OurOrcsAreDifferent orcs being descended from corrupted dwarves in this setting]]), and Elflings (elf/halfling hybrids).
* The Ardwin setting for Greg Stolze's ''TabletopGame/{{Reign}}'' fantasy RPG is one where there is no humanity, but a group of three nonhuman races and their hybrid child races. It actually makes the distinction between biological versus cultural traits, meaning an orc raised among dwarves can learn certain "dwarven" ways of doing things while being unable to learn certain orcish ways.
* The Holberker in ''TabletopGame/TheDarkEye'' are a very minor fringe race originating from [[AWizardDidIt otherwise unheard of]] crossbreeding between elves and orcs.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* ''VideoGame/WarCraft'' has Rexxar, half-orc half-Ogre who was the star of the bonus campaign in WCIII.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' itself has Lantresor, a more minor half-Orc half-Draenei character, and a whole village of half-Ogre half-Orcs including Rexxar's father, Leoroxx (Rexxar's mother is full orc, while Leoroxx isn't).
** Retcons made several years ago have made Garona Halforcen into a half-Orc and half-Draenei.
** When Illidan Stormrage absorbed the powers of the Skull of Gul'dan, he became "neither Night Elf nor Demon, but something more."
* ''Website/GaiaOnline'' has the Gimpi evolving item, the result of a Devil Imp Potion and an Angel Imp Potion getting mixed.
* ''VideoGame/{{Creatures}} 2'' and ''3'' feature a Gene Splicer machine to make your own hybrids. In a likely case of ShownTheirWork, C2 hybrids tend to be unviable.
* ''VideoGame/DmCDevilMayCry'' turns Vergil and Dante from HalfHumanHybrids into half-angel, half-demon Nephilim.
* ''VideoGame/{{Darksiders}}'' and ''VideoGame/DarksidersII'' features the Four Horseman, last of a race of half-angel, half-demon Nephilim.
* The ancestors of humans in the ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'' series are half-angel half-demon hybrids called the Nephalem. In ''VideoGame/DiabloIII'', it turns out your character is the first of the new Nephalem.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'' had the Grey Prince, half-orc half [[spoiler: vampire]].
* ''VideoGame/StarTrekOnline'':
** In the Foundry mission [[Recap/StarTrekOnlineFoundryBaitAndSwitch "Bait and Switch"]] Varus Jolin, a Bajoran, is married to Saeihr, a Romulan, and she's six months pregnant with their daughter.
** Galera, a Klingon Intelligence officer who acts as the main KDF quest giver for the ''Delta Rising'' expansion, is half-Klingon, half-Bajoran. Apparently she came out of a brief, ill-advised love affair around the time of the Dominion War.
* Elves in ''Franchise/DragonAge'' can interbreed with dwarves, but (as with elf/human hybrids) the child is indistinguishable in every way from an ordinary dwarf. It's implied that [[GeniusDitz Sandal]] may be the product of such a union.
* Sicily from ''VideoGame/DisgaeaDimension2'' is a demon-angel despite the fact that her brother Laharl is a [[HalfHumanHybrid Demon-Human]]. [[spoiler: This is due to their human mother, who was pregnant with Sicily at the time of her HeroicSacrifice, refusing the chance to become an angel and gave it to Sicily instead.]]
* In ''VideoGame/AgarestSenki'', the 2nd generation {{love interest}}s Lavinia and Faina are high elf/dark elf hybrids.
* Haer'Dalis in ''VideoGame/BaldursGateII'' is the product of an elven father and a mother who, in his own words, was "no human". As his official race is tiefling (a mortal with demonic ancestry two or more generations away), his mother may have been a half-demon of indeterminate race or another tiefling.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has the asari, a monogendered species which can mate with any other species (of any gender) at will. This leads to all kinds of inter species offspring, although the child will always be an asari, making it less of a hybrid. This is considered the norm for them; asari-asari pairings are not ''exactly'' taboo but they are looked down on.
* In ''Videogame/DivinityOriginalSin2'', Malady is an elf-demon hybrid.
* In ''Videogame/IcewindDale'' ''II'', the main antagonists are a pair of elf-devil (known as cambions) twins, Isair and Madae. They are in fact the children of [[spoiler:the previous game's BigBad Belhifet and his lieutenant the elven maiden Ilmadia.]] After their foster mother Egenia (the only person who ever wholly accepted and loved them) died, they found themselves feared and hated by everyone. They even went to the Hells and joined the Blood War, only to be rejected by the devils as well.

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

[[folder:Web Comics]]
%%* Akela Tínadne of ''Webcomic/SupernormalStep''.
* Keeva of ''Webcomic/MixedMyth'' is a goblin/elf.
* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has the mercenary Enor, who is half-blue dragon, half-ogre.
* Benny of ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' looks like the usual fantasy image of an orc, though her exact race is unknown. Eventually we get more information on her background: [[spoiler:Her mother is a blue elf, and her father is most likely the minotaur Krunch.]]
* ''Webcomic/KarinDou4koma'': Catherine is half fire-eating bird and half dog youkai. The result is a dog-eared girl with wings for arms that she can [[FeatherFingers somehow use]] as large beefy hands.
* Dark and Light elves in ''Webcomic/{{Drowtales}}'' are fully capable of interbreeding, as are their underground descendants the Drowolath and the Drowussu. The resulting children often have trouble fitting in, especially since the major clan that accepted them was destroyed prior to the start of the story, but many have managed to eke out a living in other clans. The Tei'kaliath clan is also entirely composed of these, since they are the remnants of a surface city that was much more racially tolerant than their neighbors and had much more intermixing, resulting in a lighter skintone than the majority of Drowolath.

[[folder:Web Video]]
* [[NeverMessWithGranny Rosie Beestinger]] of ''[[WebVideo/AcquisitionsIncorporated The C-Team]]'' has, over the years, [[ActionMom had many children]]. [[ReallyGetsAround By many men, of many species]]. Since she is herself a halfling, most of these children are half-halfling ([[IncrediblyLamePun "quarterling"]]), half-something else. (When played as a guest PC, as they frequently are, the closest available species template is used.)

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* Tom and Cindy in ''WesternAnimation/AKindOfMagic''. They look completely human, but their mother is a fairy and their father is an ogre ([[BoomerangBigot not that it stops Cindy from being predjudiced against ogres]]).
* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'':
** [[TalkingAnimal Talking Dog]] [[NonHumanSidekick Jake]] has five "[[FanNickname corndogs]]" with his long-time girlfriend, [[BadassAdorable Lady Rainicorn]] (a flying rainbow unicorn).
** [[spoiler:Jake himself]] is the [[FaceFullOfAlienWingWong product of his "father" being poisoned]] by some sort of [[EldritchAbomination shapeshifting, dimension-hopping demon]].
* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' features the Gremloblin, which is [[OurGoblinsAreDifferent half-goblin]] and [[GripingAboutGremlins half-gremlin]]. Interestingly, we never see a normal goblin or gremlin, so it's hard to say which traits come from where.
* A late episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheAdventuresOfTeddyRuxpin'' reveals that the recurring villain Jack W. Tweeg is half-Grunge and half-Goblin, with his father being one of the beach-dwelling, water-sports-obsessed Surf Grunges.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'' season 3 reveals that [[spoiler:recurring villain Miss Heinous]] is actually [[spoiler:Meteora Butterfly, the half-[[HumanAliens Mewman]], half-monster daughter of [[TheDreaded Eclipsa, the Queen of Darkness]]]].
