* Occasionally, a chicken might have trouble laying an egg. Instead of going down the oviduct and out it's... backside like normal, it might remain there. Another yolk comes down for the eggshell to form and it might encase the previous egg as well, resulting in what looks like a larger then normal egg once the chicken finally lays it. This large egg will have the previous egg inside it.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', a sylph is an AlwaysFemale fey who looks like a beautiful elf woman with dragonfly wings. To bear a daughter, she has to seek a mortal suitor, usually elf, human, or Halfling. Despite this, the child, described as a "baby girl with wing buds", hatches from an egg that the sylph keeps in a special nest, guarded by an air elemental.

To bear a daughter, she has to seek a mortal suitor, usually elf, human, or Halfling. Despite this, the child, described as a "baby girl with wing buds", hatches from an egg that the sylph keeps in a special nest, guarded by an air elemental. ** The game also gives this trait to pretty much any beast that has bird-like wings, no matter how much it resembles a mammal otherwise. Griffons, hippogriffs, and pegasi all hatch from eggs. (It's mentioned in the description for avorials, or winged elves, that there's an in-universe belief that this is true for them, but it is not.)

* In ''VideoGame/MapleStory'', one quest has you collect eggs from Chronos, Tick-Tocks, and Timers, and a related quest has you raise a baby Timer from an egg. While the last one resembles a bird, it and Tick-Tocks are {{Clockwork Creature}}s, and Chronos are ''undead'' beings; how any of them can even reproduce, much less from eggs, is a mystery. (Making it even weirder, the quest where you raise the baby Timer requires you to feed it [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Springy Toy Worms]], and it's unlikely most living beings could eat such things.)

* The ''Facebook'' game ''Ovipets,'' where you breed horses, cats, and wolves, among other animals, all subsequently lay a egg. This is probably so it can have the game mechanic of turning other people's eggs to collect coins, and also give them a way to force you to keep coming back to the game; you have to turn the egg every so many hours by clicking on it for it to hatch, or have someone else do it.

Deleted the note that called cauls mermaid purses. A "mermaid's purse" is a shark egg.
* While human fetuses don't have eggshells surrounding them, they ''do'' have an amniotic sac, which corresponds to the clear membrane just inside an egg's shell. Usually this splits apart and peels cleanly away from the infant before the latter emerges from the birth canal, but occasionally the sac (called a "caul") will still be completely or partially wrapped around the newborn after parturition. The caul is traditionally considered good luck. In the English-speaking countries, it was sometimes called a "mermaid's purse" and considered a talisman against drowning; many women whose babies were born with cauls could fetch a high price selling the caul to sailors.

* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', though Digimon are asexual so the eggs actually spawn ''from the remains of dead Digimon''. Since the Digimon that "spawn" from this act are actually the same individual Digimon that died, it works as a DisneyDeath. Though several cases could result in real death for good, such as fights taking place in the real world, or if someone manages to invent a device to get rid of that feature. It depends on the season.

* When kobold Radio/{{Pumuckl}} and his "owner" (for the lack of a better word) were in the zoo, Pumuckl found an ostrich's egg and thought it was an elephant's egg.
