* ''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.

* The space-based Rock Lords in ''TransformersAnimated'' have this ability. Unfortunately, it only works once, and it didn't do the one who swallowed [[KidAppealCharacter Bumblebee]] much good when it went up against [[TookALevelInBadass Sari]].

* 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.
