** [[PettingZooPeople Vector]] species were designed to interbreed but to prevent homogenization they have "Mutt Reduction Protocols" built into their genes that usually cause the progeny of an interspecies couple to be one parents' species or the other, with a roughly equal chance of either. Though sometimes a grandparent's species pops up instead. And in very rare cases the Mutt Reduction fails and you get a sterile Hybrid.

* In supplementary materials of ''WebAnimation/{{RWBY}}'', it's revealed that if two [[LittleBitBeastly Faunus]] of different kinds mate, their offspring would be this.

* The old Marvel UK anthology ''Marvel Bumper Comic'' had an AnthropomorphicAnimalAdaptation of ''Series/EastEnders'' called "Halibut Square". In this strip, Pauline Fowler was a chicken (mother hen and pun on "fowl"), Arthur Fowler was a mouse (meekness, as a [literal] HenpeckedHusband), and their daughter Michelle was a snail (pun on "shell"). (Michelle's baby Vicki, however, is a snail/rat [[PatchworkKids Patchwork Kid]], despite which nobody knows who the father is.)


* This is the basic premise of ''WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken''. To quote the ExpositoryThemeTune: "Mama had a chicken, mama had a cow. Dad was proud, he didn't care how."

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Somewhat downplayed: For the most part, as long as both the male and female pokemon are compatible with each other, the female will always give birth to the pre-evolved form of the female. If you pair off the final evolved form of a female pokemon with a male of a different species, the result will be the pre-evolved form of the female species, which by the game's standards, is ''technically'' a third species. The only time where this trope is fully in play is for Pokemon with BizarreSexualDimorphism -- enough for the male and female to be counted as two different species. In that case, the resulting offspring will be randomly either the male or female species.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}''. Somewhat downplayed: For ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': The vast majority of {{mons}} play by GenderEqualsBreed and eggs are the most part, same species as long as both the male mother. ... but then there's Manaphy. Manaphy is a OneGenderRace, and female pokemon are compatible like other such mons, it can't breed with each other, the female will always give birth to the pre-evolved form of the female. If you pair off the final evolved form of a female pokemon another Manaphy, only with a male of a different species, Ditto. ''Unlike'' other one-gender races, the result will be the pre-evolved form of the female species, is not another Manaphy, but Phione, which by the game's standards, is ''technically'' a third species. The only time where this trope is fully in play is for Pokemon with BizarreSexualDimorphism -- enough for the male and female looks quite similar to be counted as two different species. In that case, the resulting offspring will be randomly either the male or female species.Manaphy but never evolves.
