Go To

Basic Trope: A Human Alien or member of a Human Subspecies approaches a human requesting (Or demanding) they repopulate their race.

  • Straight: Bob is approached by Zendria, a martian female who's species was devastated by a plague that killed all the males and 97% of the females, asking for him to come to Mars and father their children for them.
  • Exaggerated:
    • After a virus killed all the martian males, Bob is abducted by Zendria's militia, imprisoned, and forced to seed offspring for all or Mar's women whether he likes to or not.
    • Advertisement:
    • With all the males gone, Mars tries to locate the "Perfect" human male to repopulate the species. Narrowing down race, diet, preferences, political leaning, favorite color...
    • Zendria is the Sole Survivor of the martian race who travels to earth, and attempts to mother as many children as possible.
  • Downplayed: The plague wiped out about 50% of the population, and had a roughly equal male:female death ratio. Mars can survive, but Zendria was sent to collect a sum of human males (And some females) to help speed up repopulation.
  • Justified: ???
  • Inverted: Zendria approaches Bob requesting that he kill all martians, starting with her, to solve their overpopulation issue.
  • Subverted: Zendria approaches Bob in Earth, gets intimate with him, but in reality she's fleeing an oppressive Martian government, and her friends merely want a safe home.

  • Double Subverted: ... And hopefully get laid.
  • Parodied: ???
  • Zig Zagged: ???
  • Averted: Zendria is introduced as a side character with no reference to repopulating Mars whatsoever
  • Enforced: This is a Harem Genre Anime, and the creators needed anothe rcharacter to merchandise the franchise. Zendria is one of the "Waifus" that Hiro can select.
  • Lampshaded: "Do realize how many men would kill to be where you are? You get to sleep with all of us?"
  • Invoked: The author wanted to deconstruct the sexual desire most men have with the metaphor of having to repopulate mars, and explore all the negative and tiring aspects of outlandish sexual fantasizes, multiple sexual partners, and fathering multiple children.
  • Exploited: Becoming the only source of children, Bob exploits this in order to gain political power and influence in Mars, and later, the universe.
  • Advertisement:
  • Defied: The U.N. personally intervenes and prevents Bob from visiting Mars, instead providing samples from the world sperm bank to mars.
  • Discussed: ???
  • Conversed: "This is begging for a Rule 34 adaptation."
  • Deconstructed: Bob is quick to discover that this is hopeless. He cannot be expected to provide children for every single martian, and doing so is actually putting a physical toll on him. To boot, even if more advanced methods are used like sperm donation, all new members of the species are going to be his children, meaning when they decide to mate his grandchildren will result from incest, which will immediately cripple and destroy the species.
  • Reconstructed: ???
  • Gender Inverted: Alice is approached by Kor-Viake, a martian male who's species was devastated by a plague that killed all the females and 97% of the males, asking for her to come to Mars and provide egg samples they can use to repopulate their species, even birthing some children for them.
