* The reptilian T'skrang of ''{{Earthdawn}}'' deposit their eggs in a communal creche, so knowing which hatchlings are your kids would require a lot of bookkeeping. They don't usually bother.

* In ''''TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering', on the Plane of Tarkir, there is the Dhromoka clan. All humanoids in the clan are raised communally, with no knowledge of who their parents are. This is likely to prevent ancestor worship, which was a large part of Dhromoka's predecessor the Abzan, but the leader of the current clan views as necromancy (since the spirits of the ancestors may be called upon in times of need). Nevertheless, some still practice the old ways in secret.

* Gammadian society in ''Literature/HalfwayHuman'' is organized this way. They pay women to have babies, which are then raised in nurseries. The justification for this is speculated on by the FirstContactTeam, and they suggest that it could be so that no one will ever find out that they are related to a member of the asexual [[FantasticCasteSystem subclass]].

* ''Film/LogansRun'' the "Utopian" future presented has everyone raised by surrogate robots until they come of age. A scene shows a room of infants before they're taken off to be raised elsewhere. One of the main characters even becomes severely annoyed that his friend even cares to wonder who his parents were.

* 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.
