*** ''Volo's Guide to Monsters'' gives us another explanation: sometimes, a Beholder may create another Beholder (or some other creature) by [[{{Clap Your Hands If You Believe}} dreaming]].

Sometimes related to GRatedSex. May fall into YouFailBiologyForever, if the reproductive method fails to generate enough offspring to maintain a population. Note for examples to not include anything related to cultural practices; we're limited to the biology of reproduction here. Put NonMammalMammaries, ExoticEquipment, MisterSeahorse, FacefulOfAlienWingWong, and ChestBurster on their own pages, please.

Supertrope of BizarreAlienSexes. Compare BizarreSexualDimorphism. If this trope is averted even when it shouldn't be, we're dealing with a MaleToFemaleUniversalAdaptor.

*LesXipehuz: The Xipéhuz, being the first example for BizarreAlienBiology and StarfishAliens in literature, naturally display this. Every solstice and equinox, they gather in groups of three, merge into some kind of ellipsoid and stay this way over night. The next day, they part and leave giant smoky forms which become denser and form into cones much bigger than the adult Xipéhuz before shrinking into their adult forms.

* Cui in ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' explicitly states that his kind "reproduce asexually". Everyone who knows that factoid is disturbed by it, and Dodoria helps Zarbon remember who Cui was (after Vegeta killed Cui) by stating the fact.

* In ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', [=SpongeBob=] reproduces by budding--that is, smaller copies of himself sprout from his sides and eventually detach. TruthInTelevision, as this is one method in which real sea sponges reproduce.

* Uryuoms from ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'' have this in ''spades''. They have one sex (but identify as male or female, meaning they do have genders). It normally takes two individuals to make an egg, made by secreting a certain substance - it takes two only due to the amount needed. Once the egg (which looks like a meteor) is formed, it lacks any DNA of its own. DNA of ''anything'' can be put in (through the openings that make it look like a meteor), and it will naturally create a new viable chimeric being inside it. Any number of sources can be used, (the current record is twelve). There need not even be an Uryuom as one of the genetic parents! Basically, they reproduce via a genetic engineer's wet dream.

* Many polychaete worms follow a mating strategy called epitoky, where entire segments of the worm transform into reproductive organs, which then detach from the worm and seek out other such segment to mate. Sylldiae worms, however, take this [[UpToEleven a step further:]] their reproductive segments are [[ExoticEquipment fully mobile,]] and when they meet their counterparts, they friggin ''[[ActionBomb explode]]'' in a blast of egg/sperm cells.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'''s Centauri have six prehensile tentacles for sexual organs, which are flexible enough to (as Londo demonstrated in a first year episode) snake under a poker table and pick up a card on the other side of the table. Centauri women have six corresponding slits on their backs. What drives this into BizarreAlienReproduction rather than it simply being ExoticEquipment is that the amount of pleasure from intercourse goes up for each tentacle/slit used, and use of all six is required for conception. One imagines that Centauri orgies are as decadent as their civilization as a whole...
