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

** Go-Jumong (King Dongmyeong), founder of Goguryeo Kingdom, was born as a large egg that his mother (Lady Yuwha) laid. His stepfather (King Geumwha) took this as bad omen and tried to get rid of it, but all attempts failed (when it was thrown into wilderness, fierce animals and birds kept it warm; and even the strongest warrior couldn't break its shell open). Finally Jumong was born, and he soon grew up to be a master archer and charismatic hero (which is not surprising, given that his father is the [[DivineParentage ''Sun god Haemosu'']]).

* The humanoid Red Martians in Creator/EdgarRiceBurroughs ''Franchise/JohnCarterOfMars'' novels lay eggs that are then hatched in incubators. They are somehow cross-fertile with humans.

* Beluga caviar sounds like this trope, but sadly, [[NamesTheSame it's actually eggs from a fish called the Beluga Sturgeon.]]

** 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.
