* The [[PettingZooPeople Jakkai]] from ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned'' lay their eggs once every ten years and are all placed in a single nursery. When the eggs hatch they are nursed by the females who had lain the eggs but have no knowledge of which child is theirs, they also receive their last names at birth from the village elders and are named for a unique physical feature or personality (exc-Protagonist Rhea Snaketail was named for her unusually long tail and her friend Ramirez Bloodeyes was named for his red eyes), they get to pick their first name when they're older. [[note]] Chu the comic's creator is a fan of the show ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' and based the jakkai's parenting methods from the cartoon. [[/note]]

* Greil in [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius ''Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance'']] holds this view of his mercenaries: "In times like these, it matters not what our blood ties are. We are family. If you don't want to cause your family any grief, then live!" It doesn't stop him from raising Ike and Mist, and bequeathing command of the Greil Mercenaries to Ike, though.

* The Race from Harry Turtledove's ''WorldWar'' series work like this as a matter of necessity due to the fact that they have a mating season and lay eggs communally, so that not even the mothers know who their children are. An exception is made for the imperial family, as no females except the emperor's harem are allowed within his presence during the mating season to ensure that all his children can be accounted for (And he is the only one allowed to mate with them, to ensure that they're all his).

* The Charr race from ''GuildWars'' and ''GuildWars2'' live and breath this trope. Charr cubs only stay with their mothers for a very short period before being given over to Fahrars; educational camps where they will learn how to fight, unify and define their own social structures within their future warband, which are the only family that Charr have. Cubs have an awareness of their parents, but adults have no hand or interest in the training and growth of their offspring. Loyalty to the warband and the High Legion their warband belongs to supersedes any blood tie.

* AnneMcCaffrey is keen on this trope.
** Damia of the ''Talents'' series was fostered, sent away by her father when her mother couldn't keep track of her. While this isn't mandatory in this universe, it's certainly not frowned upon.

* In ''SaintBeast'', angels are described as being created through the love of God and have no man-woman distinction so blood relationships are impossible. They all grow up together in what is supposed to be a utopian community. Humans and gods, however, can reproduce normally resulting in the half-human half-angels Kira and Maya, sons of Lucifer, and [[spoiler:[[AmnesiacGod Luca]], Zeus' son.]]
