* The Ix Negaspike from the ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' comics is a self-replicating, indestructible alien monster. When Kara freezes and smashes it to bits, it regenerates into more monsters.

* One [[ActionBomb Baneling]] upgrade in ''VideoGame/HeartOfTheSwarm'' lets them turn into two smaller, slightly less potent banelings on death (the other, vastly more broken upgrade lets them jump cliffs and over friendly units). Abathur notes that continuing the trend is inefficient, as it only leds to vaguely-self-aware slime.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/XCOM2'' features the Codex, an extra-dimensional creature of PureEnergy that will clone itself whenever it takes damage, halving its remaining hp between the body that was struck and a new Codex that appears in a random location nearby, ready to teleport to flank a target, or drop a psionic bomb to shut down your squad's weapons and force them to scatter before the attack detonates. Players are therefore encouraged to kill Codices in a single attack when possible... or [[AchillesHeel use a flashbang]] to stun them and shut down their clone ability.

* A recurring gag in several of ''Creator/TexAvery'''s cartoons was after a character got smashed by a heavy object he would turn into multiple miniature versions of himself which would then fuse together to make himself full sized again, one such example comes from "Big Heel-Watha" when Screwy Squirrel hits the title character with a mallet.

* ''Film/{{ShinGodzilla}}''s titular monster is an [[TheWormThatWalks unholy monstrocity]] that is less [[GiantEqualsInvulnerable invulnerable than the traditional Godzillas]]. The problem is that the chunks of flesh blown off of it, [[spoiler: by the only direct hit scored on it by a desperate hit by a bunker-buster-bomb, start to generate eyes, mouhts and faces within hours!]]

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. 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.

*** ''Exile'' and ''Avernum'' both take their cues from the ''Franchise/{{Ultima}}'' series, especially ''VideoGame/UltimaV''; slimes [[spoiler:and gargoyles]] in ''Ultima V'' divide when struck, assuming that they're not killed on the first blow. Slimes only appear in groups of sixteen, and each will divide once; there are subtle visual differences between divided and undivided slimes.
