There are many ways in which hybrids and hybridization is described on a scientific level, (see Hybrid). However, within the context of the Cthulhu Mythos, a hybrid may be narrowly defined as an individual or group of individuals that derive their genes from two distinct species.

An example of this is the Deep One-Human hybrids of Innsmouth, (see The "Innsmouth Look")

Hybrid as a Trope

Hybrid creatures and cross-species reproduction is a common theme in the Cthulhu Mythos.
