Compare ReplacementGoldfish and HomosexualReproduction. Not related to normal single parenthood, wherein two people were involved in the child's creation [[ParentalAbandonment at some point]]. Overlaps with MysticalPregnancy.

Opposite trope of ExtraParentConception

MysticalPregnancy if the conception is supernatural rather than scientific.

** There's an unusual case of this; the cloning was done without the parent's knowledge and [[spoiler: when Quint Nakajima discovered Subaru and Ginga, she raised them as her daughters in a normal, loving environment with her husband since she couldn't have children anyway.]]

She didn't even find out that they were her clones until much later (although their resemblance to her was part of the reason why she adopted them in the first place).]]

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

* WonderWoman was created this way (before the {{ComicBook/New52}}, where she's been {{Ret Con}}ned into Zeus' daughter): Hippolyta, Queen of the [[ImmortalProcreationClause immortal]] Amazons, was desperate for a child despite their society having no men. She crafted a baby out of clay and prayed to the gods to give it life, and the result was baby Diana.
* In the late 1980's TheDCU gave us Vril Dox and Vril Dox II. The story fits this trope to a tee, including setting impossible standards for the clone, and subsequent rebellion. Despite the latest continuity reboot claiming that Vril Dox has been operating entirely through robot proxies for thousands of years (Until Now!), it appears this relationship is still intact.

Added DiffLines:

* The orcs of ''ComicBook/OrcStain'' are an all-male OneGenderRace who reproduce this way; an orc's testes are actually symbiotic flying independently-alive plant-seeds called "Jazzum Spores". At the age of five, assuming an orc manages to avoid getting his penis chopped off first -- orcs use petrified slices of orc "gronches" as their WeirdCurrency -- an orc will wander into the wilderness and painfully ejaculate out one of his Jazzum Spores. It will fly away and bury itself into the ground, growing into an enormous vegetative womb that will ultimately spill out an average of twenty-five teenage orcs, ready to start the cycle over again.

* Not a cloning scenario, but in ''The Bad Place'', by DeanKoontz, [[spoiler:hermaphroditic Roselle, who is the product of brother-on-sister rape and fully reproductively functional as both male and female, self-impregnates three times, resulting in two sons (one the villain, the other a co-protagonist) and a pair of twin daughters]].
