** For a queen ant, bee or termite, laying several hundred eggs per day (or several '''thousand''', for some species) for the rest of her life (which typically measures in several years, sometimes up to a decade or more) is par for the course. Thankfully, the overwhelming majority of those eggs produce worker and soldier ants/bees/termites, which have a relatively high mortality rate (exceptions being workers that are colony-bound, e.g. "nursemaids" that tend to eggs and larvae 24/7) as well as a short lifespan of a mere few months on average, so it all balances out.

* ''Moria'', ''{{Angband}}'', and other related {{Roguelike}}s have several mostly low-level monsters which, as the in-game descriptions say, "can breed explosively." The most notorious of these are the worm masses, in all their [[UndergroundMonkey annoying]] [[PaletteSwap color variants]]. Even worse is in ''[[VideoGame/AncientDomainsOfMystery ADOM]]'', where creatures get stronger as you kill more of them.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' rabbits mod allows two rabbits to breed a baby rabbit when placed in close proximity. The issue is that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2clZL-9AIM this gets going exponentially when put in a small enough space.]] The vanilla game itself had to avert this when rabbits were introduced proper, since the developers thought it would crash the game.

Seconds after being fed their preferred food, they give birth to a baby rabbit when placed in close proximity. The issue is that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2clZL-9AIM this gets going exponentially when put becomes breedable after mere 20 minutes (one in-game day) and can themselves breed again after 5 minutes.

* Many RPG's have generic "Slime" monsters (DragonQuest's slimes don't count) that multiply when you fight them meaning you have to kill them all before they multiply again. (Though sometimes they only multiply a certain amount of times before stopping)
* ''UltimaV'' in addition to the slimes, has Gargoyles guarding Blackthorn's Castle's parapet, which are unstoppable. They will multiply until they fill up the entire screen, have a lot of Hit points, and deal a lot of damage.

* The Ecological Engineering Corps weaponized this trope in the backstory to Creator/GeorgeRRMartin's ''Literature/TufVoyaging'', as demonstrated in "A Beast for Norn". Haviland Tuf, owner of the last EEC seedship, hates cruelty to animals so when some planetary nobles try to buy monstrous beasts for their pit fights he throws in some "harmless little critters" to feed the beasts for free. By the time he's ready to leave the system the first house to buy from him is starting to notice that the rabbit-like hoppers he gave them to feed their new cobalcats are stripping their lands bare of vegetation, destroying their farmlands and bankrupting them.

* ''Anime/YuGiOh'': Early on, Kuriboh's main strength comes from its ability to multiply into the thousands in the course of a single ''turn'', allowing them to swamp even the most powerful opponents with self-destruct attacks.
** It does require a Spell Card called "Multiply" in order to do this; the version of this card in the actual game has a much less powerful effect.
