* The {{Transformers}} might count, with some overlap in "Bizarre Alien Assembly Process". Since BeastWars they're usually depicted as metamorphosing from blank-faced liquid metal "protoforms," which depending on continuity may be grown in energy "wombs" and become fully grown cybertronians once they get sparks implanted. At least one series mentioned "protoform molds", which might be a jab at the old die-cast toys.
* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', as seen in "On the Run", [[spoiler:Gems apparently manufacture new Gems 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: [[spoiler: the Gems pop out fully grown, but the procedure also drains life from the soil and nearby plants and leaves the ground barren and withered.]]

** While the conception of the eponymous HalfHumanHybrid probably had some conventionally human elements, there were some odder steps to get around his gem mother being from an artificial species that was never designed to sexually reproduce. She had to use shapeshifting to ''grow'' a womb, because she naturally has NoBiologicalSex, and find some way to pass on genetic information when she apparently had no DNA. Most importantly, since her HeartDrive is her real body, she had to pass it on to Steven, [[DeathByChildbirth giving up the original form of her mind and body]] to ''become'' part of him.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'':
** The Glitch is a race of robots made to simulate evolution. Part of their programming is an inability to realize that they aren't ortganic beings (though now and then a Glitch manages to break past the blocks), so they have a lot of internal blinds, including when reproduction is concerned. When a Glitch couple decide it's time to start a family, they retreat to their bedroom. They then enter a trance-like state and proceed to a secret workshop none of them are consciously aware of, where they assemble their new offspring. Upon completion, they leave the workshop and return home, after which they snap out of the trance. They will have no memory of the event, but are convinced that it was "very pleasant".
** The Floran are a race of plants and are technically genderless beyond cosmetic details. While nothing canonical is clarified about their reproduction, their respawning animation shows a seed sprouting into a pod that opens to release a reborn Floran. Early beta versions also had "Floran pods" planted in fields. Presumably, the Floran reproduce by pollination leading to seeds that are planted and produce offspring without internal gestation.

* Because mating in water can be awkward if you have no grasping appendages and your spine isn't flexible enough to entwine around your partner, dolphins resort to ExoticEquipment to maintain a grip on their partners. Female dolphins' vaginal walls constrict to hold on, and males have a ''prehensile penis'' to cling to convolutions inside the birth canal. Both sexes occasionally use their genitals to grasp objects other than mates, ''Series/BabylonFive''-Centauri style: if you visit a Swim-With-Dolphins attraction, you can count on all the animals being females, because males have a bad habit of grabbing tourists' wrists or ankles with their you-know-whats.

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, {{Face Full of Alien Wing Wong}}, and ChestBurster on their own pages, please.
