Some games are based somewhat on Mafia but are different, either by changing the initial Mafia game paradigm (informed minority vs. uninformed majority) or by replacing/altering game mechanics - different cycles, different voting styles, etc.
These games are referred to as Hybrid Mafia Games (or Hybrids) as long as the games still strongly resemble classical Mafia games. There is no proposed algorithm to discern between a Hybrid Mafia Game and a completely non-Mafia Game, the highest impact is still the community's perception towards it. Themed Games, where the game mechanics are essentially Mafia, but the story and roles follow a particular universe (movie, book, TV Series etc), are still considered Mafia Games, not Hybrids.
