* A Hebrew wonder-child tale features a girl named Kohava (star), who is born with a shining stone in her hand. The stone contains her soul, so if she ever loses it, she falls asleep until someone gives it back. She has a Literaure/SleepingBeauty -ish story arc when a princess jealous of her beauty takes her soul away, but of course a prince finds her and gives the shining stone back.

* "Momotaro" is a Japanese fairy tale similar to "Thumbelina", only instead of a flower, the tiny titular character appears inside of of a peach found floating down the river. Or, in the earliest version of the story, the peach [[FountainOfYouth makes the old couple young again,]] so they can have a second chance to have a baby.

* There's a Japanese folk tale in which a farmer and his wife raise a baby rabbit as a human; in return, when a tanuki kills the wife (and [[ImAHumanitarian feeds it to the farmer]]), the grown-up rabbit hunts down and kills it out of filial piety. (Almost like ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo''.)

* There's a Japanese folk tale called "Kachi-kachi Yama/ Fire-Crackle Mountain" in which a farmer and his wife raise a baby rabbit as a human; human/ are good friends with a local rabbit; in return, when a tanuki kills the wife (and [[ImAHumanitarian feeds it to the farmer]]), the grown-up rabbit hunts down and kills it out of filial piety. (Almost like ''ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo''.)) The name comes from one of the torments the rabbit inflicts on the tanuki: while the tanuki caries tinder on his back, rabbit lights it and explains that the sound is coming from the mountain of the story's name. While Tanuki isn't killed he's badly hurt, just as Rabbit planned.

* Deconstructed hard in ''ComicBook/{{Irredeemable}}'', where the flashbacks show that the Plutonian's (an {{expy}} of the aforementioned Big Blue Boy Scout) many different MuggleFosterParents were utterly afraid of (or at least had no idea how to handle) the wonder child's powers, causing him to be bounced around several different homes. This lack of stability and love leads to Plutonian becoming a desperately LoveHungry person who CantTakeCriticism of any kind.

* Guts from ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' serves as a much darker example of this trope. Sys, a young woman who had recently miscarried her own child, is grieving her loss and is on the verge of going insane. But when all hope is lost, what does she pass by? Why, a baby! ... that was just born from its mother's dead and hanged corpse! ... [[NauseaFuel Yay!]]

* Naturally, this occurs in Literature/TheBible, with Sarah giving birth to Isaac. Sarah was 90 years old--too old to bear a child, presumably past menopause. But if Yahweh makes a plan that involves the son of Abraham (who is 100) and Sarah founding the Jewish nation, then Sarah will miraculously give birth even though she's past menopause.
** Also in the Bible, Hannah, who vows that she will give her child back to the service of God if she is blessed to have one.
** There's also a couple of times in the Old Testament where God makes a woman, or the women of a nation, infertile for a period of time, and then makes them fertile later on. Usually after some prayer and atonement has occurred.
** In the N.T. we have John the Baptist, and in the NT Apocrypha, the Virgin Mary.



* In ''Literature/HarryPotter,'' the title character's father James was a mild example. WordOfGod says that part of the reason that he was such a JerkAss as a teenager was because he was [[OnlyChildSyndrome an only child]] born when his parents were already getting old [[WizardsLiveLonger even by wizarding standards]], leading him to be a bit spoiled.



* Baby William of ''Series/TheXFiles'' is this. By all accounts, he shouldn't exist, and how he came to be when his mother apparently had no ova was never established. And because he is a Wonder Child and "more human than human", all the bad guys want him.

** This also happened with Isaac's own wife, Rebecca, who dealt with infertility before God blessed her with JacobAndEsau. Then Jacob ''also'' had this with his [[{{Polyamory}} favorite wife]], Rachel, who eventually gave birth to Joseph and Benjamin. Though Jacob had ten older sons [[OutnumberedSibling and one daughter]], the Bible specifically says that Rachel's kids were his favorite because they were born later in his life.
** Also in the Bible, Hannah, who vows that she will give her child back to the service of God if she is blessed to have one. She fulfilled this promise with her firstborn, [[BooksOfSamuel the prophet Samuel]], and went on to have [[MassiveNumberedSiblings five kids after him]].
