* Subverted in ''Franchise/RockRaiders'' for the PC. Blasting apart a rock or ice monster with a laser beam (or a lava monster with a freezer beam) causes it to spawn three knee-high versions of itself ... which then make a run for the nearest wall and dig their way to safety.

* According to one Jewish interpretation of ''Literature/TheBible'', the plague of frogs started with just a single frog, which split into two every time it was hit. The Egyptians nevertheless were so annoyed they couldn't stop hitting it, ending with the whole Egypt being inundated.

* A series of shorts on {{Nickelodeon}} had a pair of IneffectualSympatheticVillain alien invaders who landed on a planet inhabited by a little alien that split into two more when they first tried to zap it with their laser guns. They took advantage of the alien's ability by zapping it numerous times, making more little aliens happily willing to serve their every need. Things go out of hand (as they always do for them) when too many zaps causes too many little aliens running around, which makes the pair zap them even more, which of course makes even more of them. Eventually they're forced to leave the planet as it overflows with little aliens.

* The Jub-Jub ghosts in the ''{{Neopets}}'' Magax game. And since all the enemies in a given stage have a tendency to grow, it's not uncommon to wind up with three normally-sized enemies to deal with.
