* This is said to be the theory behind Reality Marbles in the {{Nasuverse}} -- the MentalWorld of the magus is what's inside the CosmicEgg, and the Reality Marble is the ability to switch the world outside the egg with the world inside. This "creation" is only temporary though; since the event is an unnatural occurrence, the larger world will attempt to revert the disturbance back to normal, which is why Reality Marbles require a large amount of prana to maintain even for a few minutes.

* ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' uses one of these as a MacGuffin. Tokitoki, the pet bird of the [[TimeMaster Supreme Kai of Time]], has laid an egg that will eventually give rise to a brand-new universe; [[BigBad Towa]] wants it because the massive energy contained within could help her revive the Demon Realm. [[spoiler:[[DragonWithAnAgenda Mira]] ends up absorbing the egg -- '''and''' Towa -- achieving a level of power on par with [[Anime/DragonBallGT Super Saiyan 4]]. With Goku's help, the PlayerCharacter is able to recover the egg before defeating Mira.]]

This is generally used so that the universe's life-cycle mimics those of many of its creatures, giving the trope metaphorical significance as a symbol of life's beginning. As such, it is found in many religious stories and ancient mythologies, but it is also commonly found in many modern {{Mythopoeia}}s as a way to begin the narrative.
