* A subversion from ''AvatarTheLastAirbender.'' When the episode "The Fire Bending Masters" had a large golden egg feature, many fans speculated that it would hatch into a dragon and be crucial to the plot. It didn't.

* In the ''ShakeItUp'' episode "Heat it Up", Tinka (the comedic relief) enters an egg into a science fair that she genetically engineered. It hatches and proceeds to attack her.
* In ''{{Series/Merlin}}'', Merlin and company go looking for a dragon egg in "Aithusa".
* In the ''TheAquabatsSuperShow'' episode "Mysterious Egg!", Jimmy the Robot finds a giant egg and the team eagerly awaits its hatching with contrived [[ImagineSpot imagine spots]]. The egg hatches and the resulting chicken-thing wreaks havoc and runs off. Jimmy is torn between his attachment for the hatchling and protecting the rest of the band from it.

* Technically speaking, the same thing happens in ''[[{{Temeraire}} His Majesty's Dragon]]''. In an alternate version of Earth where dragons exist, a French ship is captured by the British transporting a ship...forcing the captain to harness and bond with the dragon that comes out. Laurence and Temeraire have another one to deal with two books later in ''The Black Powder War''.

Unfortunately, one of the eggs and two of the guardians don't survive the journey.

* ''Manga/NatsumeYuujinchou'': Natsume takes care of a small egg found in a nest -- which hatches into a "dragon". At first, however, it appears to take the form of an extremely ''tiny'' version of whatever creature it sees first -- namely Natsume. It is possibly the [[http://media.photobucket.com/image/natsume%20yuujin%20chou%20tama-chan/looniekat/Natsume%20Yuujin-cho/snapshot20090128191748.jpg cutest thing to ever exist in anime.]]

* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', a Quest Chain in the Badlands results in you stealing a [[AlwaysChaoticEvil Black Dragon]] Egg. You end up purifying it, creating the only known uncorrupted Black Dragon Egg in the entire World. Naturally, [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Deathwing]] wants it destroyed [[spoiler:and he thinks he has succeeded when he kills Rhea. She was GenreSavvy enough to have a Fake with her instead of the real thing, ensuring her sacrifice wasn't in vain. In the final patch of the expansion, the egg hatches into [[JerkAss Wrathion]], who proves that the Black Dragons are fairly nasty, corrupted or not.]]
