** Gems are manufacture from non-living minerals using special machinery, with the new gems literally popping out of a hole in the ground. The Classroom Gems short "How Are Gems Made?" elaborates on this procedure: the Gems [[BornAsAnAdult pop out fully grown]], [[spoiler:but the procedure also drains life from the soil and nearby plants and leaves the ground barren and withered]]. [[HumansThroughAlienEyes Viewed from the opposite direction]], Rose found ''humans'' had bizarre reproduction methods, finding the idea of growing up so weird that she thought adult and child humans were different species.

* ''VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'': The Orphe are a vaguely insect-looking species that reproduce asexually. The method is by sprinkling some "senirapa" water upon themselves (even a single drop will suffice), which causes their body to spontaneously generate two new Orphe. The children possess all the memories of their parent. It is common for dying Orphe to do this as their final act, to ensure that their memories and experiences will not be lost, but the game suggests that they can do it at any time they please, as long as they have some of the water on hand.

And this is before one Orphe randomly undergoes a mutation that leads to the sudden birth of the first female of their species.

*** the only exception is Manaphy, which will always produce a Phione-Egg.
** Some species are male-only or female-only, with the male-only ones only possibilite to produce same-species offspring being Ditto
*** the only exceptions being the Nidoran-line and Volbeat/Illumise, where male and female are regarded as different species, but the female can produce offspring of the male species, even if her male is of a different species.
** Some species are genderless and only able to mate with Ditto

* Chaosium's supplement ''All the Worlds' Monsters'' Volume III. The Scarlet Stalker captures human beings and inserts eggs into their bodies. The eggs keep the humans paralyzed until the eggs hatch and the young eat their way out of the body.

** Trolls reproduce by "mixing genetic material"[[labelnote:*]]implied to be via sex, but the open audience of the comic limits a direct answer, letting the [[RuleThirtyFour audience's imagination run wild]][[/labelnote]] with their lover and [[FoeYay their archenemy]] in separate pails, and then giving the material to a drone. Gender is irrelevant to reproduction. All of the combined material is then basically mixed together, and a mother grub takes the best material and lays eggs for the whole species. As said in comic, Trolls sure are weird! The Fridge Horror of this comes from the fact that trolls arrive at sexual maturity around the same time as humans do, and are at the same level of emotional and mental security. These are kids put to work sexing it up the second they are capable of "producing genetic material", and they have no idea what the hell is going on.

** [[spoiler: Leprechauns]] are possibly weirder than [[spoiler: cherubs]], although we've been spared the details. Their bizarre alien ''romance'' involves [[spoiler: combinations of nine emotions, one of which equates to human love or troll matespritship, and most of which involve [[TheTrickster pranks and riddles]] Unlike the four "quadrants" of troll romance, ''any'' of these relationships could lead to reproduction, following a "mating jig".]] Oh, and they seem to be a SingleGenderRace.

* In ''Series/RedDwarf'' XI, the Cat becomes host for eight polymorph babies. He is warned the morphlings will seek the nearest available orifice for birth. Cut to the Cat, naked, face-down and sweating as Rimmer, Lister and Kryten act as midwives. The Cat then endures giving birth - presumably anally - to things like a Rubik Cube with spiky corners, a very large beachball, a model cabin crusier with sharp prow, and a pineapple.

* Vonda N. [=McIntyre's=] ''Starfarer'' series has the [[StarfishAliens squidmoths]]. The juveniles exchange gamete packets with each other and keep the packets they receive (the packets can stay fresh for a ''long'' time). At some point the juvenile consciously chooses to undergo a metamorphosis, consumes the collected gamete packets, lays fertile eggs, and dies.

Added DiffLines:

* As mentioned above, some insect species have haploid males and diploid females. For them, a mature female can reproduce without mating. The resulting offspring are always male.
