* PlayedWith in ''Franchise/{{Superman}}:'' a Kryptonian boy named Chris was the son of [[spoiler:Zod and Ursa]], who were extremely abusive, but wound up HappilyAdopted by Franchise/{{Superman}} (who is, of course, an alien too) and ComicBook/LoisLane. That said, there is nothing to indicate that Kryptonians in general are bad parents--just the ones who become supervillains.
** {{Averted}} in Comicbook/DCRebirth, where "Chris" (going by his birth name, Lor-Zod) seems to have a [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes much better relationship with his parents]].

* WesternAnimation/InvaderZim: In ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim,'' Irkens don't have parents, being grown in {{Uterine Replicator}}s, with the "smeets" [[ChildSoldier reporting for training]] immediately after birth. When [[VillainProtagonist Zim]] thinks about "parents," he imagines the computer which woke him up.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'', Grampa Max's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot psychic lizard alien girlfriend]] (ItMakesSenseInContext) comes to Earth, and is confused by human parental habits. Apparently, on her planet children are left to fend for themselves as soon as they are born.

* PlayedWith in the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Suddenly Human". A human kid is adopted by the ProudWarriorRaceGuy Talarians and his biological grandmother wants to get him back cause she suspects this trope. The truth turns out to be somewhere in the middle; the Talarians might be {{Politically Incorrect Villain}}s whose [[PlanetOfHats hat]] is TheSpartanWay, but Captain Endar truly loves his adopted son.

* The Martians in ''Film/MarsNeedsMoms!'' have their offspring pop out of the ground every twenty-five years and are raised by nanny-bots programmed with the fatally extracted memories of abducted human mothers. Or rather the females are, the males are dumped down the garbage chutes where they've formed a tribal society that actually does care for their children. [[spoiler: And it turns out that the Supervisor is entirely responsible for their Brave New World-esque society, and once she's overthrown they start forming nuclear families.]]

* 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.
