* 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]].

* 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 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.
