Like Piccolo, I can fully regenerate as long as my core remains; like the Saiyans, my power increases greatly after I heal from near death; and like Frieza, I can survive anywhere.

Hybrids are villains that are a mixture of one or more different species sometimes known as a Chimera or Hydra. They can be human-like in appearance or totally alien, but should not be confused with naturally-occurring humanoid animals who are more accurately described as Anthropomorphic Characters.
