* Although it's never brought up, Elsa in ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' could be considered this to Olaf and Marshmallow, simce she created them with her magic, and she does seem to view Olaf at least with some kind of maternal affection. Furthermore, in ''Disney/FrozenFever'' Olaf calls the small snowmen that Elsa's cold creates his "little brothers", suggesting that he does view Elsa as a parent and other snow creations as his siblings.

* In the CthulhuMythos, some of the [[EldritchAbomination Outer Gods]] and other entities were spawned by only one parent. For example, Nyarlathotep, the Nameless Mist, and Darkness are offspring of Azathoth, who is their sole parent, while the Nameless Mist is the sole parent of Yog-Sothoth.

* The Durona group in LoisMcMasterBujold's ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' is an extreme example - Lilly Durona clones herself ''forty'' times, and forms an entire research hospital out of her clones.

* In JohnCWright's ''Literature/CountToATrillion'', Menelaus deduces that the story about the princess's mother is nonsense, and her only parent must have been her father -- she was posthumous, though.

** The novelization of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' movie makes it clear that Rotta is Jabba's son -- and his alone: Hutts are hermaphrodites. Jabba's father was named Zorba, and likely was the same deal.

Jabba's father was named Zorba, and likely was the same deal. However, this aspect only applies in the ''[[Franchise/StarWarsLegends Legends]]'' continuity, as Hutts are a two-gendered species and reproduce heterosexually in the rebooted canon.

* TadWilliams' ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'' features a character who attempted this as part of an {{Immortality}} scheme. He commissioned ''two'' clones of himself -- one of each sex -- and had one of them raised in the same manner as his mother, intending for her to "give birth" to his male clone and raise it as he himself was raised, thus providing personal continuity as a form of LegacyCharacter. When the program suffers a catastrophe, he gives it up in favor of BrainUploading.

\n[[/folder]]\n* {{Naruto}}'s [[MadScientist Orochimaru]] likely didn't have his son Mitsuki through "traditional" means, given that Mitsuki's response to being asked whether Orochimaru "was his mother or his father" was to say that it didn't really matter.

* In ''TheSpoonyExperiment'', this is [[MadScientist Dr. Insano's]] method for creating [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Son of Insano]].
* In ''ThaliasMusings'', this is Mnemosyne to the Muses, Demeter to Persephone, Hera to Hephaestus, and Zeus to Athena.
* Planet Shield from {{Phaeton}} designates specific people to be the truly single parents of massive litters, one of which resulted in Nakira. Also the Aud's have been their own truly single parents over and over since the 16th century.
