Half Human Hybrid / Fan Works

Go To

  • Child of the Storm has the example of Harry Potter, who's half Asgardian. Specifically, James Potter was Thor, on a first run at the humility thing. It worked very well until, suddenly, it didn't. Unusually, though, Harry shows little sign of inheriting his father's powers; a temporary Plot-Relevant Age-Up shows that he will eventually inherit the Super Strength and Flight (though he leans more towards Playing with Fire than Shock and Awe), but by the sequel, his paternal inheritance is mostly limited to a bit more raw magical power and a physique roughly on par with the likes of Captain America. It's suggested that he's a relatively slow developer in this regard because his father was human when Harry was conceived. However, since his mother's side has power to spare, what with Lily being Jean Grey's first cousin once removed, and properly kicks in around chapter 50, he doesn't miss out on much.
    • And then there's Diana, who's technically a demigoddess, being the daughter of Hercules and Hippolyta.
  • Last Child of Krypton: Aside from the canon examples of Rei and Kaworu, there is also Shinji. In this story, Lara died long before the rocket was launched. Instead of putting a baby in the rocket, Jor-El opts to store a powerful supercomputer and Kryptonian DNA in it. When the rocket is discovered later by Yui, she inseminates herself with the DNA, giving birth to Shinji as the result.

  • Marque and Reprisal: Gabe and Laureline are half-Zentraedi.
  • Superman story Superman of 2499: The Great Confrontation stars the descendants of Superman and the offspring of Supergirl. The main characters Alan and Katherine and their family are part human, part Kryptonian, with some Amazon DNA throw into the mix.
  • Superwomen of Eva 2: Lone Heir of Krypton: In this story Asuka is half-human half-kryptonian. A minor miscalculation on Jor-El's part results in Kal-El's ship crash-landing in Germany, killing him, and STAR Labs taking it for analysis. Later Kyoko Zeppelin Sohryu wants to have a baby and goes to STAR Labs to get an in vitro fertilization. Her friend Emil Hamilton does the procedure... and as the former head of the Kryptonian retrieval project and knowing how powerful Kal-El would have become (and seeing how screwed up the world is becoming), he fertilized the ovule that will be Asuka with Kryptonian DNA.

  • In the Taleof Solaron the rogue Blake is revealed to be the offspring of a human and a halfling, though he only looks like a short human.
  • In the second Interlude of Uplifted: Intervention, which is part of the Uplifted series, Tali's mother casually mentions that the company Daedalus Industries has successfully hybridized Human/Quarian DNA using Asari genetics as a baseline. Of course she mentions it while a young Shepard and Tali are sitting at the table together... Justified in universe by the fact that Humans and Quarians have been part of the same government since 1943 in the Uplifted verse.
  • All Yuki/Kyon fanfics in the Haruhi Suzumiya fandom inevitably, in their far and unwritten future, lead to this. There are also the Kyon/Ryoko ones (although since they're cloned meat puppets created by the IDE to interact with humanity, they may or may not have human DNA).

  • The Mega Crossover Halloween World and various side stories thereof are awash with Half-Human Hybrids of one sort or another, some of them distinctly unlikely, plus numerous half-anything-but-human hybrids and outright Heinz Hybrids. Justified in that magic in this verse has a tendency to get out of hand and a few people rather foolishly cast love/lust/fertilty spells that got really out of control.
  • A common trait of Mary Sues. Amusingly, they can be "half" more than two species. For example, they will be "half" human, "half" X, and "half" Y all at once. The best example may be the Mary Sue from A Trekkie's Tale.
  • Even though it's been established that Irken are born from test tubes and have no concept of human affection, this trope is agonizingly common in Invader Zim fanfiction. Brain Bleach, please.
  • In Divine Blood the Demons and Gods actively modified their DNA so as to be more human and allow them to infiltrate and manipulate humanity against each other. This led to them not only being genetically compatible with humans, but also with each other.
  • Averted in Chocobo Nights: the baby Tifa gives bears is apparently a purebred chocobo. Its only mammal characteristic is that it attempts to suckle. Yeah, it's that kind of fic.
  • Deconstructed in Morphic, a Pokémon fanfic about this sort of thing.
  • In The Tainted Grimoire, there is the Feol Viera who are half-Hume and half-Viera. Kanin is one of them.
  • In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fic So Much for the Impossible, April becomes pregnant with Donatello's child, with tests quickly establishing that the child is actually an egg; April 'gives birth' after a six-month pregnancy, literally 'laying' the egg, which remains attached via the umbilical chord until the infant emerges from the egg a short while later. The newborn infant is described as being more turtle than human, with no distinct nose and a more rounded head, although he has ears and a faint impression of hair, with no obvious sign of a shell even if he has a harder chest and a more convex back than one would expect from a purely human infant.
  • PurpleGreen Clouds has David Karofsky from Glee as a half-human, half-alien of the Grey variety.
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fics have a surprising number of hybrids, although most would be half-pony hybrids.
    • Several varieties crop up in The Great Slave King, including half-diamond dogs, half-griffons, half-phoenixes, and half-dragons.
    • The Pony POV Series has Fluttercruel, Discord's Child By Mind Rape with Fluttershy. Fluttercruel is Sharing a Body with Fluttershy, so their body is pure pony, but some of Fluttercruel's traits imply that at least spiritually, she's half draconequus. Dark World further implies this by showing she has the potential to inherit Discord's ability to Body Surf if killed by a non-Draconequus and ultimately becomes a Draconequus. General-Admiral Makarov, the Big Bad of the Shining Armor Arc, is a Deer/Unicorn hybrid. Justified by the fact he was created by a Super Soldier project explicitly intended to make this. It's also partly because he's a Parody Sue. Subverted in that he's actually an Equineoid Abomination called the Shadow of Chernobull who merely took that form to grant the Hooviets desires for the project to succeed. They also meet Kweupe, a Virgasus (a pegasus/zebra hybrid) as a guide in a Zebrafrican nation. Tempest Shadow's Origins chapter reveals the existence of the Sparkle Ponies, hybrids of Equestrian ponies and a race of aliens called the Celestial Ponies, normally from them crash landing on Equus. Notably, the improbability of an alien species being capable of interbreeding with the natives is lampshaded by Wind Whistler, but may be because ponies and Celestials have the same creator deity.
    • In Fluttershy Is Free, Fluttershy turns out to have been sired by a Changeling. Her external anatomy is Pegasus, but some of her neural wiring is Changeling: she is The Empath and an Emotion Eater, but cannot shapeshift. It is also implied that some of her Shrinking Violet tendencies come from the natural Changeling preference to hide from rather than confront danger.
    • On an... odder note, "Satyrs" have become somewhat popular on 4Chan's /mlp/ board and sites like Derpibooru. Essentially they are the theoretical offspring of Anonymous and one of the ponies, with the entire Mane 6 having Fanon satyr children all with generally agreed-upon appearances and personalities. Even a number of minor characters like Gilda and Chrysalis have been done as well, and even one of the Diamond Dogsnote .
    • Perhaps the most common hybrids in the fandom would be half-dragons or "draconies" (also called kirin, although those may be treated as a naturally-occurring race). They are usually the result of a Spike pairing in romantic or next-gen fics.
    • For a truly odd one that has taken root as of late is the "Tatzlpony", a hybrid of a pony and the massive worm from Three's A Crowd, which has a pony's body but the eye markings and long prehensile tongues and tail of the worm. It was started by this image on Derpibooru by a user who (in his own words) gets drunk and edits screencaptures of the show in his spare time, and was picked up by a number of artists who either think it's Creepy Cute, like the fetish fuel, or both.
    • The sequels to Bride of Discord have ''three, including Discord and Fluttershy's daughter Screwball, her younger brother Zany, and Applespike.
    • In Equestria: Across the Multiverse, Brightglow and her sisters are the hybrid daughters of the Pegasi Queen Star Catcher and the extraterrestrial Celestial Pony Star Skipper. The strangeness of two species that evolved on separate planets being able to crossbreed is lampshaded, and becomes a cause for close study.
    • Kilala 97's next generation continuity counts a number of half-pony hybrids:
      • Crystal Clarity and Turquoise Blits, Spike and Rairty's son and daughter, are half unicorn and half dragon.
      • Illusion, Discord and Celestia's son, is half alicorn and half draconequus — which, due to draconequi being Mix and Match Critters to begin with, largely makes him look like a more "ordered" draconequus.
      • In the alternate next gen setting, there are Morning Star (another Discord and Celestia child, and thus again half alicorn and half draconequus), Cicada Song (half alicorn and half royal changeling) and Hunter (half pegasus and half griffon).
  • Spin-offs of the rather infamous Dawn of War fanfic Love Can Bloom has Lofn note , the daughter of Vindicare Assassin LIIVI and Eldar Farseer Taldeer. The lil' cutie is presumed to be still wandering the galaxy, looking for her daddy, with a tame Tyranid Ripper as a companion.
  • The Megamind story Knocked Up has Megamind and Roxanne's daughter, Emma. Since her father's genes are stronger, she looks more alien than human.
  • In the Star Wars fic The Lost Child Ahsoka and Lux end up having twins, both of whom are half-Human, half-Togruta.
  • Soul Eater fanfic uses this trope to explain how Death the Kid appears human while his father does not, and gives him a human mother. The anime never fully explained what the shinigami were, whereas the manga jossed the 'half-human' theory by revealing Kid is a Humanoid Abomination with a Truly Single Parent.
  • The Headhunt has a minor character named Columba Ungaretti, a half-Italian, half-Orion capo for The Mafia.
  • Crucible (Mass Effect) has the turian-human hybrids thanks to the effect of the Crucible at the end of the Reaper War. They are mainly turian-like in appearance but with human 5-fingered hands and ape-like feet. They also have both turian strength and human flexibility and all are born biotics. In short, they have all the best traits of their parents' species that have made them the top dogs on their respective homeworlds and thus are viewed as perfect war machines that most people want to capture and enslave.
  • The Bridge (and its spin-off The Bridge: Humanity's Stand):
    • Due to a lot of Canon Welding, both the Mutant Soldiers from Godzilla: Final Wars and Psychics from the Heisei era are retconned into hybrids of humans and Mysterian aliens from the Showa era. Notably, it's implied this is mainly possible due to Mysterian biotech, and how much the hybrids resemble their alien parents varies, though all have black veins that appear under certain circumstances.
    • Additionally, Monster X is revealed to have been created by an Xilian soldier splicing King Ghidorah's genes into himself, effectively making him an Xilian/Ghidorah hybrid.
  • An interesting case in a few Homestuck fanfics, where hybrids rarely come from actual breeding. Usually it's the result of the main characters entering another universe, and in the process, their two species getting mixed into a singular one. This does make sense, considering the Trolls' Bizarre Alien Biology.
  • Children of an Elder God: In chapter 21, Ritsuko reveals that her mother was half-human, half-Deep One.
  • There are several Fanfictions of Elfen Lied in which Lucy and Kouta have children. These are then half a human, and the other half a Diclonius.
  • When the main characters of the Contractually Obligated Chaos series are expecting a child, no one quite knows how to describe the baby, who is the offspring of a mostly living mother and a mostly dead father. (It makes sense in context.)
  • In the Super Mario Bros. fanfic My Pain, My Thrill, Bowser Jr is the secret love-child of Bowser and Peach. He takes after Bowser in most regards but has a twisted pinky like Peach. Due to biological differences, Peach nearly died during childbirth giving birth to Jr. Jr nearly died as well, being half-human meant that he was a live birth instead of a hatchling and that he was smaller than a full koopa. As a result of the difficult birth, Bowser kept Bowser Jr's heritage secret from even his mother.
  • Jalal Stormbringer from the Shadowchasers Series series is the son of a gold dragon and a human woman. While he has no biological children, his ward Judy is also half-dragon. (The narrative claims this is a more common practice among dragons than mating with another dragon. They tend to be incredibly rare on Earth, and see other members of their species as rivals, so much so that two of them within a hundred miles of each other is a war waiting to happen.)
  • One fan-artist depicts Amy from Sonic the Hedgehog as half-hedgehog/half-lion in order to explain Amy's strength and temper.
  • Link and Mipha's triplets in Offspring look completely Zora but are half-Hylian through Link.
  • Arthur Goes Fourth: Beatrice "Beat" Simon has a rabbit's ears and an aardvark's nose due to her mixed heritage.
  • In crossover story The Institute Saga, Doctor Doom's two clone-children are human/Kryptonian hybrids.
  • In Danny Phantom fanfic ResurrectedMemories: Danny, Vlad, Dani and most recently Ember Mclain are all half human/ghost hybrids.
  • In A Few Needed Adjustments, Natsume finds out she's a hybrid after she wakes up one morning transformed into a werewolf-like state. It turns out her mother cheated on her dad with Kyubi. Half-yokai children are extremely rare. They either show their hybrid nature at birth or upon hitting puberty (like Natsume did).
  • In Growing Daylight, there are implications that Jim and Claire's unborn children are this, Claire possessing a craving for their silverware during her pregnancy.
  • In Science Knows No Bounds, Dib and Gaz are both half-Irken due to Almighty Tallest Miyuki combining her DNA with Membrane's.
  • During a battle against Suika in Fantasy of Utter Ridiculousness, Jamie claims to have a youkai somewhere in his ancestry, which would qualify him for this trope... if he didn't immediately subvert it by rescinding his claim and admitting he was just trolling Kiva and Patchouli, neither of whom are amused by his statements.
  • Us And Them: Being set in the Final Fantasy VII world, Aeris is half-human/half-Cetra. Sephiroth turns out to be half-human/half Seraph.

How well does it match the trope?
