* In ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClank Ratchet: Deadlocked]]'', Al is hit with a blaster shot and has several parts replaced by cybernetics. The blaster only hit Al in the butt, yet he winds up with cybernetics in many random and seemingly unrelated places, leading some fans to suspect Al is just [[{{Robosexual}} a little too into robots]]. Perhaps he had an "interface port" installed for [[RoboShip Helga]]...

* This Trope was integral to the backstory of Marvel villain, Master Pandemonium. Originally a spoiled rich actor named Martin Preston, a car crash one night after drinking heavily forcebly amputated one of his arms. Dying and yelling for help, the demon Mephistopheles appeared and offered him a deal, which he accepted. Mephisto summoned four demons; one of them wrenched its own arm off, and grafted it to Preston's stump, while the other three repeated the trick with Preston's good limbs. Since then, as Master Pandemonium, the four demons are his servants while in Mephisto's employ, and he can detach any (or all) of his limbs, which causes them to turn into the demons who donated them. He is most often a foe of ComicBook/GhostRider.
