* 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.]]

* An extreme case is seen in ''The City And The Stars'' by Arthur C. Clark. In the city, Diaspar, new citizens are fabricated in near adult bodies by the Central Computer and then rather casually nurtured for twenty years by a randomly chosen 'Father' and 'Mother'. The only such 'family' we see is Alvin's and while Eriston and Etania are invariably described as 'kindly nonentities' Alvin clearly has a genuine affection for them and they apparently stand by him even though he's turned their world upside down.

* The Green Martians in the first ''{{Barsoom}}'' book have their eggs taken by the elders, who chose the best to live. When they hatch, a randomly selected foster mother teaches the child to speak and a few other skills. John Carter sees this as hideously evil and the cause of much of their coldness. One Green Martian was conceived and reared in secret by her mother and knowing who her father is; she is much kinder than the rest. John Carter eventually reunites long suffering families after he leads the Green Martians in their conquest of the Red Martians.

* ''Warhammer40K'': Tau pairings are decided by genetic matchups and the child is raised alongside the others of its caste. However, there is no stigma one way or the other, and there are some Tau who take an interest in their progeny's acheivements.
* In 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.

* On ''InvaderZim,'' Irkens are grown in jars and enter training immediately after "birth." They nevertheless seem to have familial feelings, since Zim considers the "cold, unfeeling robot arm" that activated him as his parent.

* The Trolls in ''{{Homestuck}}'' never meet their parents. Genetic material is collected and grown in the eggs of a giant insect, and once the young Trolls grow out of the larval stage they are selected by a monster that they share the colour of their blood with. This monster becomes their 'Lusus Naturae' and [[RaisedByWolves raises them into adulthood]]. They can try to track down other Trolls that they share genes with by finding who had a matching sign, if they choose.
