as compared to animals like salmon or rats, humans breed quite slowly and invest alot of energy into each offspring, but compared to animals like whales or other primates, which barely breed above replacement rate, we breed like rabbits.[[/note]]

** The question of how any particular mon couple mates and lays eggs is [[GRatedSex sidestepped]]. To breed two creatures, you leave them at "daycare" together; eventually one of the daycare-takers will give you an egg, saying that they "don't know where it came from, but your Pokémon had it." There's a trainer class of "Pokémon Breeders," but somehow no one in-universe seems to know how the eggs are produced.

In the natural world, living creatures have a myriad of ways of bringing more young into the world. Some produce thousands of eggs and young that grow quickly but only a few make it to adulthood. Others invest huge amounts of time and resources to develop and take care of only a few at a time.

* ''Franchise/{{Digimon}} Adventure'', the 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. The first season is the only one to address this specifically, with others either leaving it ambiguous or not addressing it at all.

* The Wyverns ([[OurDragonsAreDifferent a type of bipedal dragon]]) from ''Webcomic/DarkWings'' are an [[InvertedTrope inversion]] and are shown to give live birth (in fact [[HeroicAlbino Sleet]] was cut out from his dead mothers body) while dragons typically lay eggs in most other media.
* ''Webcomic/SlightlyDamned''
** The Jackai are race of [[{{Hobbits}} hobbit]] sized PettingZooPeople that somewhat resemble a cross between a cat, ferret and rodent but they lay eggs in communal hatcheries.[[labelnote: fun fact]] The comic's creator based the jackai child rearing method off that of the titular creatures from the show ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' of which she is a fan. [[/labelnote]]
** The [[OurDemonsAreDifferent demons]] are shown to be egg-layers but a good deal of them [[PettingZooPeople resemble mammals of some kind]] however this trope is still in play even for the ones who look like [[BirdPeople birds]] or [[LizardFolk reptiles]] as [[http://vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/slightlydamned/images/3/35/BuwaroEgg_SD295.png/revision/latest?cb=20130118014628 their eggs]] are round, slimy and transparent like that of a fish or amphibian rather than shelled.

Popular {{Mon}}s trope, as pretty much every Mons series uses it. Especially the ones that originate in Video Games, where it also serves to simplify the breeding mechanics -- see HotSkittyOnWailordAction.

HotSkittyOnWailordAction. May also overlap with CosmicEgg, if the egg in question produces or is laid by a deity.
