* Lille Skutt in ''ComicBook/{{Bamse}}'' is a [[FunnyAnimal rabbit]], and when his childhood is described we are told that he left home early because "rabbits have children often and they have many children" - his parents basically had a new ''litter'', and Lille Skutt was the smallest of ''septuplets'' in his litter, so they were running out of space and presumably carrots. (Lille Skutt himself only has one kid, though.)

* ''Fanfic/WhatAboutWitchQueen'' amps it up - Hans already has twelve canon brothers, but the fic gives him two extra sisters, making the total number of von Schwalbes a fifteen. The oldest, Friedrich, mentions once that for his birthday, he invites nobody but the siblings and their families and they ''still'' must use a ballroom.

* It's stated in both ''Literature/TheHobbit'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' that hobbits are ''very'' fertile and have large families, in stark contrast to dwarves and elves. This is best shown with Samwise Gamgee and his five siblings (Hamson, Halfred, Daisy, May, and Marigold) as well as Bilbo Baggins' mother, Belladonna Took, who was the oldest daughter of twelve children. Sam would later go on to have thirteen children himself.



* The Stanton family in ''Literature/TheDarkIsRising''. Will is the youngest of nine, and it's revealed that his parents' first child, Tom, died shortly after birth or was stillborn - which allowed Will to be the [[MagicalSeventhSon seventh son of a seventh son]] (his dad also had a large family).

** Dirk in the ''Arrows Trilogy" is said to have six siblings: three older sisters, two younger sisters, and a younger brother. Also, as among the Holderkin, girls (who outnumber the boys) have to get married unless they go to serve the Goddess, Talia has numerous half-siblings via her father's many wives (eleven in total, with nine living at the start of the series). She doesn't seem to have any full siblings, however, as her mother DiedInChildbirth.

** It's implied in the first book that having large families may be something of a Weasley tradition. Draco Malfoy notes that his father told him that all Weasleys have red hair "and more children than they can afford." WordOfGod says Arthur only has two siblings, though it's unknown how many Weasley cousins there are. When the seven siblings start their own families, though, none have more than three children.

(Though apparently enough that when it's not safe for Harry to attend Bill and Fleur's wedding openly as himself, he is able to use Polyjuice Potion to take on the appearance of a redheaded Muggle boy from the local village and pass himself off as as a Weasley cousin without any difficulty.) When the seven siblings start their own families, though, none have more than three children.
