* In the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, ghouls are humans that got lethal doses of radiation but weren't lucky enough to die. They look essentially like walking corpses, though they actually mostly okay people. Also, [[spoiler:the Supermutants were all once human but were exposed to the Forced Evolutionary Virus. The BigBad of the first game, The Master, fell into a vat of the stuff as a human. By the time the Vault Dweller meets him, he's a mass of mutated flesh stretched throughout the foundations of his base, merged into his computers, and has absorbed many other living things/people (minds and memories included)]].

*** The Centaurs of ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}} 3]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas New Vegas]]'' really exemplify this trope in all it's horror. Apparently they're mish-mashes of human and animal parts created with the Forced Evolutionary Virus. Because a picture speaks louder than words, [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/b/bc/Centaur.png/revision/latest?cb=20110204015102 here you go]].

*** ** Some of the post-war fauna have mutated as a result of long-term exposure to radiation. Most notable is the brahmin, a species of cow with two heads and various other disfigurements.

** ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' has [[spoiler:Mr. House, who has been alive since long before the war. He has been kept alive for over 200 years by using a specially-designed "hibernation chamber" that hooks his mind into the Lucky 38 casino and his army of security robots. After all this time, his physical body has withered into a mummified-looking husk.]]

* For being such a light-hearted game otherwise, there's a particularly jarring example in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin 2}}''. "Bulbmin" can be found in certain dungeons, and at first appear to be nothing more than dwarf Bulborbs with a single leaf growing out of their back. Then you look up their [[AllThereInTheManual entry in the Piklopedia]] after completing the dungeon and discover that the ''actual'' Bulbmin is the leaf itself, a parasitic life form that grafts itself into the bulborb's nervous system through its spinal cord, and controls its actions while the host is still living and conscious.

* In ''VideoGame/CliveBarkersUndying'', Bethany got her final revenge on her brother Aaron by [[spoiler:chaining him inside her private dungeon and letting rats ''eat him alive'', removing his jawbone so he couldn't scream]]. Which also qualifies as YouFailBiologyForever, since removing someone's jawbone does not affect his ability to scream - the ''vocal cords'' should be removed for it. As a matter of fact, he could probably do ''nothing but scream''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/DarkestDungeon'' has basically everything in the Warrens, half the things in the Weald, and any Cultist enemy you encounter in the Darkest Dungeon itself. In the Warrens, twisted experiments involving summoning and pig corpses have given rise to horrible misshapen creatures, including a boss that's a seething, mutated mass of pig flesh covered in eyes and organs that are supposed to be internal. In the Weald, human corpses covered in fungi scuttle around in disconcerting poses. And in the Darkest Dungeon itself, you get to see what the gifts of the new god look like, and they are ''not'' pretty; one enemy, the Priest, has been mutated so heavily they no longer even qualify for the Human type and appear to be mostly just tentacles hidden under a robe.

* The Egg-burdened in ''VideoGame/DarkSouls''. These poor guys have giant eggs growing out of their backs that are so heavy and huge that they can't even walk and are reduced to crawling. Despite this, most of them actually don't mind their situation seeing it as proof of their devotion to the mutated Daughters of Chaos. Many of them also carry Egg Vermifuges which can cure their condition -- it's entirely their choice. If you make one hostile, it will attack you and plant an egg in your neck that will eventually cover your entire head. It's actually ''in your best interest'' to do this at least once, since the Egg-burdened NPC Eingyi will interpret your condition as a sign of devotion to the Fair Lady. He will then offer you an Egg Vermifuge and sell you the forbidden Pyromancies that the other Pyromancers exiled him for creating.

If you make one hostile, it will attack you and plant an egg in your neck that will eventually cover your entire head. It makes you less resistant to fire and halves your soul gain... but if you feed it enough souls, your kick attack will be replaced with a bite attack similar to the Egg-burdened.

** Joker's blood also infected several people in ''Arkham Knight'', bleaching their skin, turning their hair green, and giving them the same nasty "rash" Joker had, as well as giving them a fragment of Joker's personality but that's another story.

** And to mix things up, there's the Zombine: A Combine soldier taken over by a headcrab. Unlike regular zombies, they are still connected to the [[EnemyChatter Combine network]]. Plus, take off the headcrab, and you'll get a worse sight than that frozen scream: [[OffWithHisHead everything above its jaw is gone.]]
