* ''VideoGame/StarControl'' has the Shofixti, a sentient rodent species. At the time of ''Star Control II'', due to the war against the Ur-Quan, their species is down to [[AdamAndEvePlot one male and six females]]. Bring them together and the species repopulates within a few weeks, and gives you a cheap supply of crewmembers for your fleet.

* The Creator/{{Disney}} short ''[[WesternAnimation/MiscellaneousDisneyShorts Pigs is Pigs]]'' has this with guinea pigs. We start with two and by the end of the short there's well over a million. When two go out of view temporarily, expect at least three kids to show up when they come back into sight.
** [[ShownTheirWork Which is, in fact, the usual size of a healthy cavy litter]].
* An idea for an ''OswaldTheLuckyRabbit'' short had Oswald being overwhelmed by the never-ending influx of bunny children, even going as far to attack the stork.
** ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'': Oswald The Lucky Rabbit has 420 kids. His mate? [[InterspeciesRomance Ortensia, a cat.]]

* A human example is Mother of Champions from DCComics. Her power is to conceive a litter of 25 children each time she has sex, who complete gestation in 3 days, after which she gives birth. These metahuman offspring are [[SuperStrength superhumanly strong]], but [[YoungerThanTheyLook age ten years for each day they're alive]], so they are used as expendable cannon fodder by the Chinese government -- she has no contact with them once they are born. She has apparently given birth to thousands of these offspring, sports a perpetual [[ObviousPregnancy pregnant belly]], and relies on a robotic chair with six insectile legs to carry her around, as she gets too large to walk on her own.

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'': The most famous example is the tribbles, which did mention that they reproduce asexually. In fact, they are actually ''born'' pregnant, and as long as they're fed, they'll keep making more tribbles. WordOfGod states that the tribbles were based on the rabbits in Australia [[note]]//In ''The Trouble With Tribbles: the Birth, Sale, and Final Production of One Episode'' David Gerrold says "Look — I thought I was telling the “rabbits in Australia” story. When rabbits were first introduced to Australia, they multiplied at an incredible rate because there were no predators or natural enemies to keep them in control. It was an ecology story -- and a spaceship is the perfect setting for it because a spaceship must be a balanced ecology."[[/note]]. [[spoiler: Ironically, these creatures were instrumental in identifying the actual villain in the episode.]] It's probably a good thing the Klingons and tribbles instinctively hate each other, since otherwise they would have wiped out all life on several planets. Nuking their homeworld was probably a bit much. "Do they still sing songs about the Great Tribble Hunt?"

** How fast is the human population growing? About than 50 years ago, the number of people on Earth was just 3 billion, less than half of the current (as of 2013) '''7 billion plus'''. Since the rate at which our population is growing is also increasing, its not unlikely that many people will live to see the population triple as well. Since fertility rates in developed countries tend be drastically lower that undeveloped or developing ones, most projections have the population leveling off at around 10-11 billion by 2050, and ''declining'' thereafter.
