* ''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.]]

* The entire plot of ''Anime/SeireiNoMoribito'' occurs because Prince Chagum is carrying the egg of a water spirit within his body, at first leading many people to believe that he's [[DemonicPossession possessed by a demon]]. The entire cast becomes very concerned both with making sure the egg hatches successfully (since there will be a horrific drought if it doesn't) and with making sure that Chagum isn't killed in the process, with much of the drama of the latter half of the series coming from the fact that the two goals may be mutually exclusive.
