* The DS-only sequel to ''{{Okami}}'', ''Okamiden'', stars Chibiterasu, Ammy's son, and Susano and Kushi's son. Not so remarkable? The second game takes place ''nine months'' after the end of the first.

* In the aftermath of {{Marvel}}'s ''Comicbook/CivilWar'', Tigra discovered she was pregnant by the Skrull impersonating Hank Pym. She disappears shortly after Norman Osborn takes power without so much as a baby bump, reappearing in time to take part in the Siege of Asgard. Afterwards she reveals that she'd already given birth to a son, William, in the time between her escape from Osborn and her joining the battle there. Handwaved with a throw away line about her race of cat people having two month gestational periods.

* In AnneRice's ''Literature/{{Taltos}}'', the Taltos grow faster if the woman in question is aware of her pregnancy and sings to them while being pregnant; this happens within a few minutes at one point. They also age superfast once actually born, becoming adults and able to have their own children within minutes. This leads to a very squicky scene in which a newborn Taltos [[spoiler: is forced to impregnate its own mother before it is promptly burnt alive]].

* ''Literature/TheKharkanasTrilogy'': The second book, ''Fall of Light'', has Sandalath be raped by [[spoiler:Lord Draconus' power repository that has become corrupted by too much evil in its vicinity and taken on a humanoid form]]. Due to the assailant's supernatural state, Sandalath goes through ''several'' pregnancies in a row which each take mere moments from conception to delivery until something capable of life is produced. Contrary to expectation, the result is not a FetusTerrible, but a somewhat weird looking but otherwise sweet child with a case of [[RapidAging accelerated aging]].

** The way Pokémon works is an example as all you need to do is put a male and female of compatible [[HotWailordOnSkittyAction Egg Group]] together in the Daycare/Nursery and walk for a bit. Depending on whether the Pokémon are the same species or have different trainer I.Ds, eggs can be produced extremely quickly and in large numbers. Eggs hatch depending on the amount of steps you take, but this "waiting period" can increase as well. This can lead to a net increase of ''over 100 offspring or more'' in a single breeding session.

* In the'' WomenOfTheOtherworld'' universe, [[spoiler: Elena's pregnancy only lasts five months, due to her being a [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolf]]. Somewhat unusual in that neither Elena nor her mate suspect anything unusual about her being as large as a fullterm pregnancy at only five months--Elena complains frequently about the inconvenience. Their cluelessness is justified since she's the first known female werewolf and thus she's having the first werewolf pregnancy. The ExpressDelivery is explained as splitting the difference between the duration of a typical human pregnancy and a typical wolf pregnancy.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Played with in ''Manga/KouchaOuji'', there was a pregnancy that lasted not even a month. It's because the whole thing happened in the Tea World where time flows about 10 times slower compared to the human world while the mother was a human so her body's own time was still bounded to its true course. So technically while the pregnancy was extremely fast to the Tea World and its natives, the pregnancy itself actually processed on normal speed from a human's perspective.

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of [[SoapOpera soaps]], they often do this if they want a child's birth to occur during a sweeps period or special occasion (Christmas, etc). Ex. ''Series/OneLifeToLive'''s Luna gave birth in May, despite announcing her pregnancy the previous December, meaning she was either already 3 months pregnant when she made the announcement, or that she gave birth prematurely.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Amen}}'': Thelma went from announcing her pregnancy to not only being ready to deliver, but being two weeks overdue within a few months.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' has the [[BlackMagic Corrupt Conjuration]] spell "Searing Seed", introduced in DragonMagazine #300, later appearing in ''The Book of Vile Darkness''. If the victim fails to resist it, they become instantly pregnant -- even if they're [[MrSeahorse male]] -- with a FetusTerrible that is a half-fiend clone of the victim. This monster goes from conception to [[ChestBurster violently tearing its way out of its host-mother's stomach]] in 1D3 rounds. That's 6 to 18 ''seconds'' for non-D&Ders. It then grows into a fully mature adult within a round of being born. It also has a particularly psychotic case of CloningBlues, causing it to be obsessed with killing its parent/original, if they survived the birth. And they might not; the victim takes an incredible amount of damage from the trauma, even more if male, seeing as a male body isn't physically designed for such a thing.
