* Drizzt Do'Urden, the drow of ''ForgottenRealms'' fame, was almost killed at birth because he was the third son born into his family, according to the R.A. Salvatore novel "Homeland." The ChaoticEvil and matriarchal drow were fine with having ''many'' daughters, but any more than two sons had to be sacrificed to Lloth. Drizzt survived because one of his older brothers killed the other to improve his own standing.

* The UrExample is probably the case of the Dionne quintuplets, born in Canada in 1934. A tragic case, they were removed from their parents' custody and exploited as a government-operated tourist attraction.
* For a darker [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]] of this, many cultures view the birth of twins as a bad omen, which may lead to them being killed shortly after birth.
* Then there's Nadya Suleman, the "Octomom," so called because of a dead-straight example of the "in vitro GoneHorriblyRight" version resulting in the second set of surviving octuplets in US history (and first set where all members survived longer than a week.) Normally that many are ''not'' implanted, but she has said that the alternative was that the unused embryos would be destroyed. This adds to the six kids she had ''already,'' those ''not'' at once.
** In order to not look ''completely'' crazy she claimed to have only implanted 6 left-over embryos (of which 2 then split into twins) because she didn't want any of her babies to die. She was [[BlatantLies lying]] on both fronts: the doctor implanted 12 embryos. And she insisted on fresh embryos for each of her IVF-cycles, so there are still some of her embryos left in the freezer.

* A whole spate of RealityTV shows involved finding TruthInTelevision examples of this trope and filming it, the most well-known example probably being ''JonAndKatePlusEight''. Shows in this vein seem to be waning in popularity thanks to Octomom (who actually has ''fourteen'' children), whose irresponsible invocation of this trope has caused the viewing public to strongly question the morality and motives of anyone who would decide to have this many children, let alone try to get a Reality TV show for it.
