** This is nearly always reused no matter what the setting is, even Elseworld stories. In ''SupermanRedSon'', Kal-El's ship crashes in the Ukraine sometime in the 20's and is raised in a commune with socialist values and becomes the USSR's greatest champion, ''Superman: Mastermen'' has him raised as an Ubermensch by the Nazi party, ''SpeedingBullets'' has him become the adoptive son of the Wayne family and so on.

* Both WesternAnimation/{{Megamind}} and Metro Man are aliens who landed on earth as babies and were raised by humans. Metro Mans ship landed near the mansion of a rich couple and was mostly raised by his loving adoptive mother. Megamind however, ended up crashing into a nearby prison (his pod was originally on the way to the mansion but Metro Mans knocked his off course), and was raised by the inmates. They were nice enough parents but unfortunatly taught him THEIR values, turning him into a criminal.

* [[{{Superman}} Clark Kent]], birth name Kal-El, is a Kryptonian (a race of HumanAlien scientists) who was sent away from his home planet as a baby shortly before it was destroyed, and upon landing on Earth was taken in by the Kents, a kindly human couple. If you're feeling déjà vu, it's because Akira Toriyama was inspired by Superman.

* Tod from ''Disney/TheFoxAndTheHound'' is raised by an old widow woman after his real mother had been killed by hunters.

* In the ''Literature/EarthsChildren'' series Ayla invents the concept: first she takes in a foal when she kills its mother for food, then she takes in lion cub which gets injured, then a wolf cub when she kills its mother.
* Hagrid attempts this with a baby dragon in the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' series. He ends up letting Norbert ([[spoiler:Or, should I say [[SamusIsAGirl "Norberta"]]?]]) go to live in a dragon preserve in Romania.

* Godzilla, Jr. from ''WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries'' [[{{Imprinting}} imprinted]] on Nick Tatapolous as his adopted father. Since then, Godzilla has loyally protected Nick from danger and Nick does all he can to make sure Godzilla is safe and others are safe from him.
* Subverted in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' where Finn The Human tries to raise a baby Jiggler. His heart's in the right place, but he doesn't know how to take care of the Jiggler and nearly kills it. He ends up bringing the baby back to its mother.
* Subverted with Brian from ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. While he is treated like part of the family, he's only considered the family pet rather than a surrogate son to Lois and Peter.
** Played straight in the episode "Brain's Wallows and Peter's Swallows" in which a bird makes a nest in Peter's beard (ItMakesSenseInContext) before being frightened away. The bird had laid eggs in said beard which hatch and Peter ends up taking care of them until they are old enough to take care of themselves and fly away.

[[AC:RealLife]]
* Many people who have pets do see them as part of the family and view them as their own children. This is especially evident with families with "empty nest syndrome" who often get a pet as a sort of "surrogate child".
* An episode of AnimalPlanet's ''Series/FatalAttractions'' featured a man who raised a lion cub as if it were his own child. Said cub in question ended up mauling his actual human daughter. The lion in question had to be shot and killed by the very man who raised her in order to save his daughter.

* In Turtledove's WorldWar Series, two Lizards are raised by one of the human characters.
* In ''[[TheDemonsLexicon The Demon Trilogy]]'', the demon Hnikarr possessed the body of an unborn infant. Taking possession of such an unformed mind provided a way for Hnikarr to keep the body from deteriorating (the original occupant being in no way equipped to resist), but it also caused Hnikarr to lose his memory and limited his mental development to that of his body (the reason that demons in the setting normally avoid possessing humans younger than [[DangerousSixteenthBirthday sixteen]]). The mother of the possessed baby then ran off with him, with the end result that he was RaisedByHumans [[spoiler:as Nicholas Ryves]].

* In ''WatershipDown'', General Woundwort was orphaned as a baby when a weasel killed his mother, and was taken in by a kindly local man. It's likely his later hyper-aggressiveness stems from the trauma of watching his mother being eaten and the stress of growing up apart from other rabbits.

* Teddie from ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' was originally a [[spoiler: mindless Shadow. After becoming self-aware]] he lived all on his own and isolated, until the Investigation Team, especially Yosuke and Yu, started to pretty much raise him. He's been acting as somewhat of a little brother figure to Yosuke (thus mirroring Nanako and her relationship to Yu) ever since.
