* In Neal Asher's [[PolitySeries Polity]] series, adult males of the vicious, crab-like Prador [[note]](Prador females are non-sapient creatures treated as breeding stock)[[/note]] use their brood of sons as a combination of [[WeHaveReserves expendable slave-labour]] and [[MonstrousCannibalism readily-available food supplies]], even harvesting the brains of particularly troublesome sons to be used as lobotomized [[WetwareCPU Wetware CPUs]] for their warships or attack drones. For any juvenile Prador male, the only sane way to survive to adulthood is to somehow murder their father and usurp his position, assuming they can even survive that long before he catches on to them.

* In the Literature/SpaceBrat series by Creator/BruceCoville, aliens are hatched from eggs and raised by a computer, although after that they enter school and have a fairly normal childhood. However, the main protagonist Blork got a piece of eggshell caught behind his ear, causing him to cry. The computer, not knowing the cause, simply labelled him a "Brat" (literally; the word was rubber stamped on his forehead), which gave him a bad reputation that impacted his entire life.

* Before the events of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'', the Saiyans send their infants off to fend for themselves... and destroy planets. Without Freeza's influence, the last Saiyans left alive [[AvertedTrope do care about their young]], although this caring generally takes the form of TrainingFromHell to ready their offspring to better handle combat as opposed to trying to keep them ''out'' of danger. According to WordOfGod, Saiyans don't have much of a nesting instinct. Saiyans thrive on challenge and harsh environments, becoming stronger upon recovering from fatal injuries. This may also explain Goku and Vegeta's parental styles as while they do care for their children, their way of raising would be different (not to mention Goku being raised in the near-wilderness).

* The regul from Creator/CJCherryh's ''Faded Sun Trilogy'' treat all children as expendable slaves; the survival rate to adulthood is less than one in a hundred, and most pre-adult regul are killed, often quite casually, by adults of their own kind.

Master. The only alternative to this appears to be military service, an article that suggests that idea the young Doctor liked even less. The Master himself, while privileged even among Time Lords' entire civilization is Lords, had this to the Doctor.

* ''Webcomic/{{Drive}}: r-selecting species with lethal rights of passage seem common.
** The Continuum reproduce asexually and rapidly if they want to, and treat their progeny as cannon fodder with nothing but a number to identify them. One in thousands survives the heat of battle and becomes a Maker.
** Tesskans abandon their offspring to the wild, eventually allowing the survivors to rejoin the pack when they gang up on and kill the pack's oldest member.
** The Astina have hundreds of pups and then require them to prove their worth to their family. As seen when Orla catches a pup stealing and for getting caught his father kills him with his bare hands.

* One issue of Justice League Adventures (No. 24, "Alien Like Me") involved a kid who, as it turned out, was an alien, [[HappilyAdopted raised by human parents]] after his EnergyBeings parents [[ParentalAbandonment dump him on Earth]]. Then one day [[PubertySuperpower his true form begins showing]] and he [[GrowingUpSucks accidentally blows up his parents.]] And only ''then'' do his alien parents come back for him. Needless to say, the kid was ''not'' happy. [[spoiler:Somewhat subverted though, as the aliens are shown to love their kid, [[BlueAndOrangeMorality in their own weird way,]] and the issue ends on an [[AmbiguousEnding ambiguously happy note,]] with either his human parents [[BackFromTheDead raised by alien energies,]] his alien parents [[MeatPuppet choosing to raise him as humans,]] [[MindScrew or]] [[WillingChanneler something else entirely.]] ]]
