MYTHICAL HYBRIDS

Go to A-Z List

Hybrids, in the mythical realm, are creatures that combine the features and body parts of more than one real species.

There are non-human versions that combine features of one or more animal species such as the basilisks, the Chimera and griffins.

Then, there are also part human combinations such as the very popular centaurs and mermaids.

Now, these mythical creatures seem as they have all the capabilities of being formidable beings especially when having, perhaps even mastering the command of all the strongest features of each of it's mixed species.

On the other hand, some of the combinations you will read about will make you wonder how such creatures could even sustain themselves, let alone survive.

This category is comprised of very well known, strong and mighty creatures. It also includes unsavoury beasts with all the necessary features and powers required to create the most horrifying and terrible nightmares possible. 

I mean, think of just simply crossing paths with a skinless mouse (or a skinless anything) never mind a huge headed man-horse like the Nuckelavee stretching his long arms about trying to grab at you - very creepy.
