* In ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' [[PettingZooPeople Vector]] couplings produce RandomSpeciesOffspring, but the progeny of Vector and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Cog]] couples take after the mother. After all, one type is gestated in a biological womb and the other is built by an internal manufacturing center.

Added DiffLines:

* Goblins in ''LightNovel/ReMonster'' are similar. Although females exist, goblin couples have a low conception rate so they find it easier to breed with captured human women. The child is always a full goblin.

In many settings InterspeciesRomance, when it can produce offspring, usually results in kids that [[AllGenesAreCoDominant combine traits from both parents]], but sometimes one parent's species seems to be consistently dominant. In those cases the offspring is one parent's species or the other's, rather than a hybrid of the two.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims3'' and ''VideoGame/TheSims4'', Sims abducted by aliens and impregnated will always give birth to a 100% alien child, with alien powers and appearance. However, this is averted if and when the alien child has a child, they may or may not have alien powers and appearance. Also somewhat averted in ''VideoGame/TheSims2'', where AlienAbduction results in a HalfHumanHybrid that can have more or less alien features depending on the child (however, alien traits are still dominant).

* In Creator/JRRTolkien's Middle-Earth stories, people with mixed human and elven ancestry can, and sooner or later must, choose to be human (and therefore mortal) or elven (and immortal). The visible examples of this in ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' are Elrond Half-Elven[[note]](a poetic rather than a precise epithet: his human ancestry came from his grandfather)[[/note]] and his daughter Arwen. Elrond chose to be an elf; Arwen chose to be human so she could live out her life with Aragorn.
