* 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.

* Dr. Von Reichter from ''{{Cybersix}}'' creates his "son" Josť with science. Von Reichter doesn't seem to consider Josť his son so much as Josť thinks of [[WellDoneSonGuy him as a father]].

* The ''{{Transformers}}'' continuities in general do this a lot with their robot characters, given that they only need a single set of hands (or even no hands, in some cases) to build them.

* Laurel "Cobweb" Lakeland and her sidekick Clarice (and all their known ancestors) in ''Creator/AlanMoore's TomorrowStories'' are somewhere between this and HomosexualReproduction. They're clones (parthenogenic reproduction), but their development was triggered by lesbian sex between the previous Cobweb and her sidekick.

* While they're not clones, ''ThePowerpuffGirls'' father, Professor Utonium, could still qualify as a Truly Single Parent by adoption if nothing else. At least if you consider "Made in a lab out of sugar and spice and everything nice, plus Chemical X" to be adoption.

* Ryoko in ''TenchiMuyo'' ({{OVA}}s only) is not really a clone since she was partly created from one of Washuu's egg cells and partly from the Mass (a [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshifting]] HiveMind), but is pretty close to the trope, and considered a daughter by Washuu. At one point when Washuu is describing Ryoko's origins the other girls suggest that the Mass is her "father" Ryoko angrily rejects the idea. Her childhood was terrible, but mostly because she was enslaved by the villain (who also kept Washu as a HumanPopsicle). Notably, while Washuu is the greatest scientific genius in the universe, Ryoko [[BookDumb isn't]]. Though this might just be a result of Ryouko's complete lack of any kind of education.

* The Angel race in HappyWorld reproduce asexually. They are only able to do this once in their life, to produce a single, or in rare cases, two pure blooded angel children. They are able to reproduce with humans to make half blood angels though.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims 2'', if you use the Tombstone of Life and Death, you can choose to "simulate a genetic merger with" the Sims that are currently on the lot. The selected Sim (the one who would be getting pregnant) is included on that list. Children produced through this method will always be a gender-switched clone of the parent (at least, in facial features and coloring).
