* 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.

* Most officially defined evolutionary lines in ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' fall under this; lines with a consistently maturing appearance are the minority and are generally specifically designed as protagonists of an anime series. Perhaps the standout example is Patamon of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure'', who evolves from a vaguely-defined small orange [[FanNickname flying meatloaf]] mammal thing into [[OurAngelsAreDifferent an angel]]. In the broader canon, most Digimon have a wide variety of forms to which they can evolve, generally not restricted to specific lines, and so pretty much any and every Digimon can be an example of this.
** And it gets worse than him. His line is at least pig thing with ribbon ears > pig thing with batwing ears > angel > bigger angel. However, Gatomon's is puppy > cat > angel > dragon. There are also situations where the onscreen evolution is ''not'' the most obvious one from the cards or games. In 02, Gotsumon is a little rock dude who has a repaint called Icemon... but instead becomes the rhino-like Monochromon. In other series he skips Champion altogether, becoming a repaint called Meteormon... which by association means ''Monochromon'' becomes a ''different'' little rock dude rather than Vermilimon, who is a red repaint of Monochromon.

* According to ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'', the eponymous Metroids of ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'', while on their home planet at least, go from floating parasitic jellyfish to beetlelike creatures to giant armored lizards. In an interesting twist, the first stage is not only the most well-known and arguably most dangerous, but while nearly every game has a variant of the jellyfish stage, the later stages have only appeared in a handful of games. Apparently their larval stage can become mutated in various ways from the chemicals and radiation in its surroundings[[note]]eg. exposing one to Phazon on planet Tallon IV causes it to grow long tentacles, and beta radiation will make it divide into two[[/note]], and they can only complete their normal life cycle on planet SR-388.
** Also, according to ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'', [[spoiler:Ridley's larva form is a small rabbit-bird-thingy, which then becomes a feathered lizard kind of creature before finally evolving into the space dragon we all know and love.]]
* As the inspiration behind the 2 examples from Metroid above, 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.

* Gosamyr, a friend of the ''ComicBook/NewMutants'', was a member of an alien race whose members undergo through this.
