* One of ''Daria'' BigNameFan Roger E. "The Angst Guy" Moore's works, ''Quinnts'', splits the title character's sister, Quinn, into a set of, appropriately enough, quints, who each embody an aspect of the canon Quinn's personality (bossy, hedonistic, rambunctious, psuedo-intellectual and attention-seeking, respectively). Predictably, their version of Daria is a complete emotional wreck.

* ''ComicBook/TheChroniclesOfWormwood'': While touring Heaven, our heroes run into a man taking care of an entire room of screaming, hungry babies, and begs them to help as he thinks there's been a terrible mistake, but Danny tells him there was absolutely no mistake where he's concerned. See, the man was a suicide bomber, promised entry into Heaven and 72 virgins...


* ''Manga/OnePiece'': Subverted with Charlotte "Big Mom" Linlin - she gave birth at least once a year for 42 years, resulting in a total of 85 children (including at least eight sets of twins, two sets of triplets, a set of quadruplets, a set of quintuplets and a set of ''decuplets''), but apparently never had any trouble with any of them, aside from most of them growing up to be just as unpleasant as their mother.

It helps that's she's extremely wealthy due to being a pirate empress.


* ''WesternAnimation/EveryDogsGuideToThePlayground'' (NFB of Canada, dir. Les Drew, 1991) closes with a very pregnant Honey going into labor, causing her husband Bernard to faint. The family dog, Wally, then packs everyone into a child's wagon, and wheels them to a hospital. There, a waiting Bernard receives his wailing children fresh from the delivery room. All 32 of them. He sounds rather displeased at this development.
