The Hybrid is one of various play styles a user may choose to follow. This play style is predominately found in Pets Live. As the name suggests, the Hybrid works towards a balance between Attack and Defense, achieving this by choosing balanced pets and evenly distributing their skill points between attack and defense. Many have criticised this play style as being a poor choice, as a Hybrid is not strong enough to overcome the great defense of the Defender and likewise is not strong enough to defend themselves from the Attacker.
