Pulled this:

  • In a 1980s "Dennis the Menace" arc, Gnasher disappeared for several weeks, and was finally revealed to have run away and had a litter with a female poodle. All the female puppies were pure poodles, but the single male one was a duplicate of Gnasher called Gnipper.

The girls were all duplicates of Gnasher only with white fur (and unlike Gnipper with his single fang, inherited their father's teeth). I'm not even sure their mother was a poodle; she appears in one flashback panel in a kennel, and as far as I know is never seen again.

There's a Beezer strip featuring one of Gnasher's daughters (Gnatasha) on this webpage. She looks less Gnasher-like than in her first appearance, but she's definitely not a poodle.

Mild case in Harry Potter. Harry looks almost exactly like his father (apparently he only has one physical feature from his mother). Albus Severus isn't described in the books as having any characteristics different than Harry. Lily Luna has red hair like her mother and apparently not her father's eyes which implies that she would have her mothers eyes. Averted in the films where Harry's sons have brown hair instead of black or red (even light brown in Albus' case)

Pulled this one from the Tabletop Games: D&D section:
  • The same goes for Changelings. As changelings can breed with any race thanks to their shapeshifting, the resulting child will have the same race as the parent of the same gender. Also note that changelings CAN change their own gender (though if impregnated they will remain locked as females until they give birth).

Races of Eberron page 45 states that a child of a Changeling and a humanoid of a different race has a 50% chance of being a Changeling, but unlike the Kalashtar description on page 59 it makes no reference to the gender of either parent. (My apologies if the information came from a different source, but I'm not sure where that would be. Eberron Campaign Setting doesn't seem to reference Changeling reproduction at all.) The part about pregnant Changelings being Mode Locked as females is accurate but has nothing to do with this trope.

Gerudos female only have one male, and they all reproduce with he, and he alone, and he always become the king.

Of course they can get other boy friends but they dont reproduce

Ganandorf is this king, and is the reason that they race become very small in the next games

No, no, no, no, no.

This is, like, totally wrong. The single male born is the king, but he is not the only one who fathers any children. This should be obvious because one male is only born every 100 years. The "boyfriends" was obviously a reference to picking mates.
