* Flash-forwards in ''ComicBook/AdventureTime'' have briefly featured a young female barbarian warrior called Penelope who has characteristics of all three of Finn, Bubblegum, and Marceline. The "Mnemenoid" arc of the comic featured a potential future in which they are implied (as blatantly as is possible in an all-ages comic) that they are in a three-way relationship.

* ''Venus and the Seven Sexes'', a 1949 short-story by Creator/WilliamTenn, features a seven sexed species that passes gametes in a chain: sex "D" receives from sex "C" and transmits to sex "E." The sex of the offspring is determined by the sex of the parent which receives/completes the fully fertilized gamete. One sex is tasked with ''coordinating'' the family.

* Invoked in the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' finale ''Epilogue'': it is revealed that Terry [=McGinnis=] is more than just the son of Warren and Mary [=McGinnis=], but [[spoiler: the biological son of Bruce Wayne thanks to Amanda Waller of CADMUS's secret acquisition of Wayne's DNA in an attempt to create a new Batman. Waller had Warren injected with Wayne DNA while claiming it was a flu shot. That injection overwrote Warren's reproductive genes. This last-minute {{Retcon}} actually helps explain why Terry, and by extension his younger brother, Matt, have black hair while Warren and Mary have red hair, when genetically their children should have been red haired too]].

* The ''{{My Teacher is an Alien}}'' series by Creator/BruceCoville mentions one species that requires "seven genders [sic] to produce an egg, and three more to hatch it". This being a kid's book, the exact mechanics of this are never explained.

* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'': To some extent, Giorno Giovanna is the son of Johnathan Joestar, Dio Brando and his unnamed mother, as a result of Dio fathering him while possessing Johnathan's body. Though biologically a Joestar, he seems to inherit more traits from Dio.

* In the {{Naruto}}, PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians, MonsterHunter and (recently) ChronoCross crossover [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11782922/1/ Hunter With a Divine Third]], Naruto is born with the divine help of Artemis, who blessed his mother's womb. That somehow makes him be a third divine (thus the name of the story).

* In OctaviaButler's ''Literature/LilithsBrood'' books, there are male and female Oankali, but the third gender ooloi does the genetic mixing. Note that the ooloi don't put their ''own'' DNA into their children--rather, they mix their children from their four mates (two male, two female, two human, two Oankali).

* While ultimately, it's still one sperm per egg, some sex researchers postulate that this is the basis of promiscuous behavior among women, getting multiple men to inseminate them so that only the fittest sperm will fertilize the egg, thus ensuring your progeny will be prodigious.
** A similar theory puts forth the idea that this is to create uncertainty as to who the father is, inspiring all the men it could possibly be to help support the woman and child on the off-chance it's theirs. It's still, of course, one egg and one sperm, but the resulting child would have many possible fathers.
