Added DiffLines:

* Used for the ending of ''ComicStrip/FootrotFlats: A Dog's Tail''. Major mockingly greets the Dog with "Meow" (a reference how the Dog was raised by a CrazyCatLady) only for the Dog to smugly reply, "No, bow wow!" whereupon the bitch Jess appears with several puppies.

* ''ComicBook/GastonLagaffe'' had a strip where Gaston gets a bunch of unidentified eggs and decides to hatch them. They turn out to be sea turtle eggs, and on hatching they immediately head for the sea, with Gaston holding up traffic so his charges can cross the street safely.

Added DiffLines:

Amberley is quick to note the comparison is not one either would have appreciated.

One can make any kind of predator into a monster by targeting either the parent or one of the children. Strangely, however, even said predator can become cute once again if [[MonsterIsAMommy followed by babies of its own]].

* World of Warcraft has a Plainstrider (a large flightless bird) named Mazzranache, who's followed around in Mulgore by three little ones that look like him.
* In {{Pikmin 2}}, Spotty Bulbears may be followed by Dwarf Spotty Bulbears. This isn't cute at all and only serves to make a DemonicSpider even more demonic. Bulbmin may also have smaller Bulbmin, but fortunately, you can get them to your side if you defeat the parent.
