* ''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.

* 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 encourage 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.

* ''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.
** 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.)

* Occasionally, a chicken might have trouble laying an egg. Instead of going down the oviduct and out the cloaca 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. Other times, an egg will come out with a shell and white, but no yolk, and such eggs were once thought to be laid by ''roosters''. Still other times, if a hen has some kind of distress or illness, she might lay a "cooked" egg. (No, really.) Most of the time, though, she will either lay sporadically or stop laying all together after that.

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