The rational solutions, semirational solutions, and their interactions to the ()-dimensional Jimbo-Miwa equation are obtained by the Hirota bilinear method and long wave limit. The hybrid solutions contain rogue wave, lump solution, and the breather solution, in which the breathers which are manifested as growing and decaying periodic line waves show different dynamics in different planes. Rogue waves are localized in time and are obtained theoretically as a long wave limit of breathers with indefinitely larger periods; they arise from a constant background at and then disappear in the constant background when time goes on. More importantly, the interactions between some hybrid solutions are demonstrated in detail by the three-dimensional figures, such as hybrid solution between the stripe soliton and breather and hybrid solution between stripe soliton and lump solution.
