We’ve seen DMC involving a halfbreed of human and demon. Bayonetta half witch and half sage. Even Metal Gear Rising involving a ninja cyborg.

How would you picture an alien-based hack and slash game involving a half-breed of human and alien?

Human father and alien mother. Think Species and Independence Day. Even Area 51 and Ben 10.

It reminds me of Star Wars or Guardians of the Galaxy. You'd wanna have a space opera set in the far-flung future rather than modern-day Earth.

Granted having an alien warrior crash land on Earth and having to adjust to gun-based warfare could be interesting.

Modern-day Earth would be exciting though.

Watch the movie max steel , then take that concept but change it to a half breed

Same powers with more added in and some melee weapons

There's also a TV series of the 2013 Max Steel. Including the 2000 one.

But anyway, how would you all picture an alien-based hack & slash game?

A lightsaber & laser guns would be good.

But what if he gets new weapons & powers from various types of aliens? Look at Ben 10.

Instead of a half alien, maybe something comical, like a student getting into an accident with a space cop from another galaxy and gets heavily injured.

Feeling responsible, the space cop preserves the student by attaching his head to a cyborg body until they can get his original body healed and repaired.
The student now has to do some work for the space police in order to obtain the necessary materials to heal his body and return to normal life.

Game mechanics involve him swapping bodies to change combat tactics or to blend in with his surroundings.

Doesn’t anyone have anything supportive for a hack and slash game for aliens?

I’d go for someone who gets certain alien DNAs for weapons and modes/forms.
