Other potential cases of night elves giving themselves over to include the , who could just as easily be the literal children of the . These "children" are the and , who bear the upper bodies of night elven men and women (respectively). The related are the bastard offspring of Cenarius' eldest son and the princess , but they do not bear much resemblance to the night elves and look closer to humans.
Another race of elves has arisen on the face of Azeroth: the half-elves, the hybrid descendants of and high elves. Reports of half-night elves exist, but most of these would be in their infancy, given the recent rediscovery of Kalimdor. There is one half-kaldorei — — but her parentage is unknown. It is not certain if there are any half-blood elves, as the high elves (and their blood elven survivors) were prejudiced against half-elves, so there wouldn't be any initiated into blood-elvendom and the chances of a blood elf mating with a human, especially after their removal from the Alliance and joining the Horde, are slim to none.
Other perversions of the elven species include the and . The are the remnants of those Highborne who were trapped in the implosion of the Well of Eternity but who survived by mutating into horrific beasts. They retained their immortality and dwelt beneath the great , though they were reawakened by in the wake of the and are now bent upon reclaiming the land, attacking any night elves they find. Similarly, the feral harpies attack anyone they see, being brutal cannibals.

While they cannot be said to be separate races, the undead and spectral remnants of the elves — members of the as well as numerous , , and — haunt those lands that they once occupied in life.
