* ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. Little is known about the reproductive process of the Rosharan chasmfiend, but one stage seems to involve the creature climbing up onto a plateau, spinning a vaguely insect-like cocoon out of what is basically cement, and waiting for one of the storms that come along every few days. Presumably, they need the {{Mana}} the storms carry to fuel the transformation to the next stage of their cycle.

In the second book, Shallan points out that since the Alethi have been slaughtering pupating chasmfiends on a massive scale for the past six years, they're dealing huge damage to the ecology of the region, and it's not sustainable.

** Orks are partly fungus-based; they shed spores throughout their lives that can grow into any kind of Orkoid lifeform, and release a large number of spores upon death.

** Orks are partly fungus-based; they shed spores throughout their lives that can grow into any kind of Orkoid lifeform, and release a large number of spores upon death. They qualify as AlienKudzu in that every single Orkoid has the potential to grow into a full "[[{{Terraform}} Orkiformed" ecosystem. The only way to prevent this is by [[FireKeepsItDead burning the bodies]].

* In an issue of ''ComicBook/BlueBeetle'', Jaime Reyes, having been teleported to Reach space, hitches a ride back to Earth with a space smuggler called Moonrunner. He suggests that they shake hands and agree not to betray each other, but Moonrunner refuses because he doesn't "like [Jaime] that way", at which point the scarab informs Jaime that Moonrunner's species reproduces by shaking hands.

** [[http://scp-wiki.net/scp-150 SCP-150 ("The Prosthetic Parasite")]]. SCP-150 burrows into a human body and changes the nearest limb (arm or leg) into SCP-150 tissue covered with a chitinous exoskeleton. The victim is mind controlled into removing the limb, which then hatches out more SCP-150 larvae.

** [[http://scp-wiki.net/scp-149 SCP-149 ("The Blood Flies")]]. SCP-149 are mosquitos that reproduce by injecting a retrovirus into the human body that changes cells into fertilized mosquito eggs. When the eggs hatch the mosquitos leave the body through the mouth, nostrils and eye sockets. This invariably kills the victim.

* ''Series/{{Hyperdrive}}''. Before making FirstContact with an alien planet, the crew have to watch a {{squick}}-inducing InstructionalFilm warning them of the dangers of BoldlyComing.
->''Let's learn about another Alien Sex Disease. This crew member had intercourse with a Glygonthian octopoid. Let's take a close look at his genitals. Pustules have developed. And on the pustules, warts. Soon his entire groin explodes revealing five baby octopoids, each with his face. Remember -- alien sex is danger sex.''

* Much like Xenomorphs, Chryssalids in ''VideoGame/XComEnemyUnknown'' plant their seed into living hosts by viciously murdering them, which turns humans into shambling zombies. If a zombie is left alive for too long, it will burst into a newborn Chrysalid, identical in size to a "mature" one, but with lighter skin color.
** in ''VideoGame/XCom2'', the Evolved Chryssalids don't need to directly kill the host in order to inject eggs anymore, they merely need to poison the host. If the host dies while the poison is still in effect, they rapidly transform into an overgrown cocoon, which, if left alone too long, bursts open to reveal ''three'' newborn Chryssalids.
