* Once upon a time, [[EldritchAbomination Horrors]] of [[ChessMaster Tzeentch]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' and ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer40000}}'' did this - "Pink Horrors" split into weaker "Blue Horrors" when wounded. The rules no longer reflect this aspect of the fluff, "for the sanity of the players."

* Basically the whole premise of VideoGame/BloonsTowerDefense, and which sets it apart from most other "generic" TDs. EVERY SINGLE bloon does this except for the lowest tier. Short list from strong to weak in BTD5: Z.O.M.G. gives 4 B.F.B.s which give 4 M.O.A.B.s, which give 4 ceramic, which give 2 rainbows, which give 2 zebra, which give a black and a white, which each give 2 pink, and from then on only one comes out each time, going pink, yellow, green, blue, and finally red. Additionally, there's also lead bloons that give 2 black. Also, if a bloon gets through your defenses, you lose lives equal to the total amount of bloons you let slip, meaning that if a blue one gets through, you lose two lives, but if a ceramic gets through, you lose 104 lives. If a M.O.A.B. or anything above goes through, the game ends instantly.

Sometimes, the miniature versions will grow to normal size if they are not killed quickly with the potential to overwhelm the player if its [[IncreasinglyLethalEnemy allowed to continue for too long]]. Also, the smaller asteroids tend to be [[GoddamnedBats faster than the bigger versions and harder to hit]], thus making them even more dangerous. The Asteroids Monster is typically not a [[BossBattle boss]], but are usually DemonicSpiders or at least GoddamnBats. It occasionally shows up as the MiniBoss.

MiniBoss. If it is an intelligent life-form it isn't always clear if the new individual is a perfect clone of the original one and if the original one is one of the new ones. In supernatural cases it can be justified as the creature capable of dividing its entity. Needless to say, something so different from the human body invokes strong feelings of alien-ess.

* TruthInTelevision for many RealLife asteroids, especially the smallest ones, that are believed to be fragments of larger ones destroyed in collisions with others long ago. In a few cases the orbits of some are so similar that are considered to form an [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroid_family asteroid family]], created by the disruption of a larger body.
** This trope is also the reason why blasting apart a large asteroid on collision course with Earth might not be the best idea. Instead of one big impactor, you'd end up with a bunch of smaller ones - still traveling in the same approximate direction.
