** 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* The Galka in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' are an all-male race. They reproduce via a form of reincarnation. When a Galka is approaching the end of their current life through natural causes, they sense it is approaching, they will go on a spiritual pilgrimage to a high mountain and await their current life's end. According to Galkan beliefs, a magnificent light will appear and grant that Galka a new younger body, and seemingly fragments of the memories of their past life. No one else has witnessed this miracle, and no Galka recalls their personal experience of the matter, so there's some who believe it is simply folk lore. But there appears to be truth to it, because after a Galka leaves for their final journey, a new Galkan child arrives to the same Galka village within less than a year latter. No one however, is sure how Galkan's then replenish their numbers, due to death from violence or illness.

* In the original ''Series/{{V}}'' miniseries, Willie recognizes Robin is pregnant because she's developing a ring of discoloration around her neck, which suggests that such rings are normal for Visitor mothers-to-be. His comments imply the ring becomes more complete as the pregnancy progresses.

* The [[Series/{{V2009}} 2009 remake]] is a little strange. The normal V reproduction involves a queen (like Anna) mating with a male, after which she eats him for nutrients. She then lays hundreds, if not thousands, of fertilized eggs with one or two being "queen" eggs. While initially thought impossible, it's discovered that HalfHumanHybrids are indeed a possibility but may be more V than human. Only one was shown onscreen, the product of a [[HumanMomNonhumanDad V father and human mother]]. However, the final episode shows a queen V mating with a human and taking a bite out of him, implying she has been impregnated.

* The male anglerfish is tiny compared to the female. The sole purpose of the male in life is that once it gets the scent of a female, it swims to it and bites down on the side of the female. At the same time it excretes an enzyme at the mouth which causes it to physically fuse to the side of the female, and is functionally reduced to a pair of balls hanging from the side which the female can use to impregnate itself when it is most convenient. When anglerfish were first studied, the males were thought to be a completely different parasitic species.

*** Just to be clear, if an illithid tadpole somehow survives for long enough without a host, it doesn't die. Instead, it grows up into a Neothelid, which resembles a dragon-sized, slime-caked worm with a mass of tentacles for a face, psychic powers, and the ability to breathe acid. Illithids prefer not to talks about them.

* The MyTeacherIsAnAlien series makes mention of a species that requires "five genders to produce an egg, and another three to hatch it". It's a kids series, so we aren't given any details on how this works.
