Hybrid AU (also known as Animal AU and Animalized AU) is an AU in the fandom where the Big Four are hybrids, portrayed as animals and have animal-like abilities or parts.

About the AU

Spawning from fanart, this AU places the Big Four, and other such characters as Hybrids and have human characters animalized (or portrayed as animals, its a bit like genderbending), while animal and "creature" characters are humanized (portrayed as humans) for pairings, crossovers and other AUs. The four also have animal-like parts (like ears and tails) on their bodies or have their abilities. The four can also be partnered up with animals, that fans sometimes portray them as.

Featured Characters

The Big Four

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III

Fans have infused Hiccup with Toothless as they turned him into a Night Fury-human Hybrid. They have also made him as a human with dragon like abilities (because of his dragon like soul), like understanding what they are saying, breath fire and having dragon like eyes; or just have him turned into a Night Fury. As well as fans featuring him as a Deertaur (seen in Deertaur AU) and a Centaur (in Centaur AU). Fans have also placed Hiccup as a Cat, Dog, Fox and a Rabbit (or just give him their animal ears and tails). Sometimes in My Little Pony AU, fans have placed Hiccup as a pony that is part dragon (with dragon-like wings and tail), which makes him look a bit like a bat-pony from the series. Just as there are times when fans have Hiccup's merman tail look a bit like Toothless's tail and its find, for when it is featured in black color for The Little Mermaid AU.

In some modern crossovers and AUs he is commonly Toothless' owner, for when his dragon is cast as a house pet (like a black cat or three legged dog) or as a black coated horse that he rides from time to time.

Jack Frost

The animals that Jack has been turn into by fans is a Polar Bear for the Jarida pairing (when Merida repeats her story with him, as she gives him the spell that turned her mother into a bear) and as a White Ferret for Hijack. While his friendship with Bunnymund could have Jack as a white or brown furred Rabbit or be given rabbit ears and tail, that looks like Bunny's. The same with Toothiana and Baby Tooth, when he is given Hummingbird-like features, like their green feathers, to make him a human-hummingbird hybrid, or is turned into one; while the world within Fairies AU could have Jack be given a pair of wings that are like theirs. He is also portrayed as a Wolf (as well as giving him wolf ears and tail on his human body) for the Red Riding Hood AU and Werewolf AU, and as a Cat (for his role as the Cheshire Cat in Wonderland AU and as Chat Noir in Miraculous Ladybug AU), while his Patronus in the Hogwarts AU commonly takes the form of a Fox or Hummingbird. Jack is also seen partnered up or being good friends with Arctic and Winter animals or with a wolf.

Jack can even be featured as his human self, for other AUs, crossovers and even pairings. Much like the rest of the Guardians of Childhood when fans portray them as humans.

Merida DunBroch

Fans have given Merida the form of a cat or raccoon for Jarida. She can also be portrayed as a bear, because of the spell that she used on her mother, for her "beast" form in Beauty and the Beast AU and the form of her Patronus in Hogwarts AU. She could also be placed as a horse (because of her relationship with Angus) or be infused with a horse, to make her a centaur (seen in Centaur AU).

Extra Characters

Dragon Riders

The Dragon Riders are commonly seen as dragons or dragon-human Hybrids, whenever fans infused them with their dragons. While their dragons are portrayed as Humans, their own self versions of human-dragon hybrids or are featured as another kind of Animal, like cats, dogs, birds or any other kind of reptile. They could be featured as reptile hybrids, that are mixed with another kind of animal. Since Night Furies have bat-like wings, Stormcutters resemble owls and have their head turning "ability", Slitherwings being snake-like dragon, Deathgrippers having scorpion-like tails that leashes their own kind of venom, and so on.

Dragons

The dragon characters in the fandom are commonly featured as dragon-human Hybrids or humanoid-like dragons. While in modern crossovers fans have them as humans or other kinds of animals, like cats, dogs, birds, any other kind of reptile, and many more.

While Toothless and his mate's hatchings, the Night Lights, being a sup-hybrid species of both night furies and light furies, may encourage fans to mix and breed many different kinds of dragons with each other, to create many other kinds of dragon hybrids. Since they are able to bread and obtain them in the mobile HTTYD3 app game, Dragons: Titan Uprising.

Toothless

Toothless is portrayed as a Human or a Night Fury-human Hybrid for the Toothcup, Stormless, Toothjumper and Buckteeth pairings. As a human or human-dragon hybrid, Toothless is commonly given black hair, due to his scales, while one of his missing tailfins has him missing part of an arm or leg, like Hiccup. As well as a black Cat or Dog for the Modern AU and a few related crossovers, a Horse for the Ranch AU, and as a Wolf. The Night Fury could even be placed as a Bat, due to the likeness of his wings and has been shown to sleep upside down. While in The Little Mermaid AU, Toothless is featured as a Shark, Dolphin or an Orca that is close with merman Hiccup.

Stormfly

Stormfly is portrayed as Astrid's pet Bird or Dog for modern crossovers and as a Human. She is also seen as a Deadly Nadder-human Hybrid for the Ermfly and Stormless pairings. As a human or human-dragon hybrid, she is commonly given blond hair; due to the color of Astrid's hair and the touch of yellow on her scales. While as a bird, fans have given her blue colored feathers with a touch of yellow, like the Deadly Nadder's scales.

Guardians of Childhood

E. Aster Bunnymund, Toothiana and Sanderson Mansnoozie are portrayed as humans (humanized version) or (normal) animals (versions of themselves) for Pairings, other AUs and crossovers. Since Nicholas St. North already looks human and had been one before he became a Guardian, he'll most likely be given an animal form or have fans turn back time to make him a young human again (like with Jack); while the other three Guardians are turned into everyday people or human-animal hybrids.

Human Bunny is sometimes featured with still having his long, rabbit ears for when he is seen as a human-rabbit hybrid. While there are times that he is given human ears, along with commonly having long or short, gray-blue hair that is the same shade of his fur, when he is giving long hair it is tied back into a ponytail. His human skin is mostly Australian tanned due to his accent and the location that Easter Island is said to be in, while the markings on his body are dark-blue tattoos. Bunny is also seen as a ordinary gray furred rabbit, much like the form he took when less children began to stop believing in him, and grew weak because of it.

Human Tooth is mostly seen with long or short brown hair, that is sometimes given mutable colored-screaks on her fringe that match the colors on her wings, or the feather-"hair" on her head; her human hair is even placed in a shade of green on some rare occasions to match with the color of the feathers surrounding her body. She is sometimes given feathered styled jewelry like earrings or hair accessories to wear, as if to serve as a reference of her human-hummingbird self. Her eyes commonly remain pink while the dark-light tan color of her human skin is usually due to her being depicted to be of South Asian origin or descent, because of her backstory being set in South Asia. Her human self could even be made to look like her human form from the book series, as Tooth was once a human like her father until all of her baby teeth fell out and became like her mother. Tooth can also be featured as a green feathered hummingbird; along with her fairies as fans also portray them as ordinary birds. As well as a hybrid of her human and feathered-fairy guardian self merged together, to make her a bird or fairy/guardian-human hybrid; with less feathers (while keeping a pair of green-feathered wings in place of her colorful fairy wings) and more human-like features.

While Sandy who already looks human, his "pure" human self isn't that different from his original form. The only difference is that his body isn't make out of sand or all yellow around his body, except for his hair. The Guardian of Dreams can even be featured as one of the animals that his Dreamsand takes the form of.

Baby Tooth

The small, feathered tooth fairy is mostly featured as an original green hummingbird (due to her bird-like appearance) or as a young human child, while her queen's human form places her as an adult or teenager. Like Toothiana, Baby Tooth's human eyes remain the same and is commonly given brown hair, but with a yellow screak on her fringe. While other fans think that her hair should be green. Baby Tooth's human form as even been made to resemble Jack's little sister, as many believe that there is a connection between the two. There have also been fans that have part of her bird-like features mixed with the human appearance, that fans give Baby Tooth, to make her a human-bird hybrid.

Tadashi Hamada

Tadashi is sometimes portrayed as a Fox or is given fox ears and tail, because of the "Kitsune" identity he takes most commonly in Dark AU and even Seasons Guardians AU.
