* 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.

* Parodied in ''{{Drowtales}}''. The twist ending of one non-canon sidestory has [[MadScientist Asira'malika Val'Jaal'darya]] cheerfully announce after spending most of the story teasing the (all female) clan leaders at a gathering about the identity of the "second mother" of the baby she's carrying that they are ''all'' the child's mothers. The other leaders all either think this is a bad joke or get angry at her, but a montage showing the child growing up shows that she displays traits from their various bloodlines.

* Exaggerated and Deconstructed in ''Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet''. Freddy Krueger is implied to have been conceived this way. His mother was a nun who worked at a mental institution where she became trapped alone with one hundred of the inmates over a period of several nights. [[ChildByRape Freddy was the result]], and became taunted all his life as the "Son of a Hundred Maniacs". Subverted in ''Film/ANightmareOnElmStreet5TheDreamChild'': one of the maniacs is shown to [[IdenticalGrandson look exactly like pre-death Freddy]], hinting that this is in fact his biological father.

** Andorians--in the StarTrekNovelVerse (''StarTrekOnline'' borrowed this)--have four sexes and need to form a telepathically bound quartet comprised of one of each sex before they can hope to conceive. "Chan" and "thaan" approximate male, while "zhen" and "shen" approximate female (the "shen" conceives the embryo while the "zhen" carries it to term in a pouch). There isn't any evidence of this within the LiveActionTV {{canon}} though: It's based on a throwaway line from Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration: [[Recap/StarTrekTheNextGenerationS4E11DatasDay "Data's Day"]] that Andorian marriages consist of four people, but that could just as easily imply [[ExoticExtendedMarriage polygamy]]. Since they have a low birth rate, it's a HandWave for why that race isn't seen much in space, despite being one of the Federation's founding species. The novels have fleshed out the four-sex biology and four-gender culture interpretation considerably. This is apparently an EnforcedTrope: the authors felt that it offered more storytelling opportunities than the polygamy explanation.
