** In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', [[spoiler:Kira Yamato]] is considered the "Ultimate [[DesignerBabies Coordinator]]" because he was grown in one of these, which means his genetic mods came out exactly as intended because there weren't any outside factors from the mother to influence them.

A UterineReplicator is a way of growing a child outside the human body by using technology, magic, or [[{{Magitek}} a combination of the two]] in place of the mother's womb. The reasons for this are many and varied: sometimes it's done to combat problems with sterility, or it's done as a means of population control or abortion alternative, or as a way to protect the mother from DeathByChildbirth, or even to let two men [[HomosexualReproduction reproduce]] together without invoking MisterSeahorse. It can even be simply a case of a TrulySingleParent with an "interesting" outlook not wanting to "pollute" his/her child (often a DesignerBaby) by exposure to the "flawed" environment of a natural/organic womb.

Aside from the benefits described above, such devices are often a staple of {{Dystopia}}n settings. In the most typical scenario, popularized by works such as ''Literature/BraveNewWorld'', a power-hungry totalitarian government [[NoSexAllowed outlaws all sex]] (or renders it irrelevant in some other way), and claims exclusive rights to growing children, who are then brainwashed into accepting the government's official ideology and their place in society without question from birth (or even from conception). In such a case, you can expect whoever rebels against said government to employ an AppealToNature and argue that the technology of growing children artificially is in itself evil, rather than the government's oppression.

** Ectobiology is somewhat unusual in that it does not require "donors," as it works by StableTimeLoop: it takes its DNA sample from [[spoiler:the "ghost slime" created when trying to Appearify something [[YouCantFightFate whose destiny was not to have been Appearified away from that location and time]]. In fact, it's implied that the DNA sample in question will always contain serious mutations unless the targeted entity [[TimeTravelTenseTrouble has going to have been]] [[StableTimeLoop cloned from]] [[MyOwnGrandpa that DNA sample]]]]. It also skips the incubation step entirely and just spits out fully-formed young of the species that it was fed, and apparently is also capable of combining the DNA of [[MindScrew things that don't have DNA.]]

* While not human, the Asgard in ''StarGate'' reproduce in this manner. They also grow "blank" clone bodies to replace their own when they die. The drawback: CloneDegeneration has left them a DyingRace.
