* PlayedWith in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse,'' as [[PosthumousCharacter Rose Quartz]] mentions that she was surprised to realize that children and adult humans were even the same species. Her species are BornAsAnAdult, so it never even occurred to her that something could change so much over its life cycle.

* In ''Literature/Animorphs,'' the Skrit Na come in two forms: the Skrit, which is basically a huge and not-too-bright cockroach, and the Na, which are TheGreys (and [[CloudCuckooLander also not very bright]]). The Skrit is the first phase, which eventually goes into a cocoon and dies, [[{{Squick}} with the Na emerging from its body]].
* {{Implied}} in ''Literature/Everworld:'' the Coo-Hatch, a vaguely-humanoid race from another universe, are always accompanied by weird little flying insects. The human protagonists suspect that those might be young Coo-Hatch.

* In ''{{WesternAnimation/Futurama}},'' the crew discover a mysterious but delicious food that looks vaguely like shrimp, just filling up holes on another planet. They sell it on Earth and it becomes hugely popular...which is bad, because it turns out those are baby Omicronians, and the parents are naturally miffed at the Earthicans for eating their children.

* The Aliens from ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' also have a peculiar lifecycle: It could be described as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biological_life_cycle#Haplodiplontic_life_cycle haplodiplontic]], with the "gametophyte" being a creature that could be described as a mismatch of hads/legs, tail and genitalia that lives just to seek a host to impregnate, and the "sporophyte" developing in the body cavity of the host, emerging violently as a snake-like creature, and quickly growing up into a large, 4-limbed biomechanoid creature with some traits reminiscent of the host species, but taller and slimmer. If it grows into a fertile queen, it also changes its limb structure, grows an additional pair of arms, increases in size, and loses the host-like characters.

** There are also situations where the onscreen evolution is ''not'' the most obvious one from the cards or games. Take Gotsumon, a child-sized RockMonster. In the card games, he has a moderately developed evolution line that consists of {Palette Swap}s (he evolves to [[AnIcePerson Icemon]] and [[SpaceMaster Meteormon]]). In [[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 02]], however, he instead becomes the rhino-like Monochromon. Now, Monochromon (Champion-level) has its own PaletteSwap evolution Vermillimon (Ultimate), but in Anime/DigimonFrontier and [[Anime/DigimonSavers Digimon Data Squad]], different Gotsumon appear who evolve into Meteormon, which suggests that Monochromon can branch ''back'' into Gotsumon's Palette Swap line.
