Yes, basically asexual mode of reproduction involves only 1 parent and processes like meiosis, gamete production, fertilization, parthenogenesis, and transfer of gametes between two individuals does not occur, 

In fungi and algae spores like zoospores, conidia, etc, are formed asexually. 

Also in plants, vegetative reproduction in which a specific plant part, e.g. - eyes in potato, bulbils tubers, etc. can form a complete plant and is another example of asexual reproduction in multicellular organisms.
