* ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' is a variation, with a team of cyborg investigators (with much more of their bodies being cyber than organic). Togousa, being the least cyberized (and implied to be the most human) is TheHeart of the squad, but most of the characters are shown to still be essentially human, even if some installments of the franchise seek to explore what that exactly means.

Added DiffLines:

* Two of the hunters in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}'', Bucket and Cabot, used to be partners in the Hub Marshalls. By the events of the game they've been retired for some time, but the mutual respect they formed had them stick together as Planet Tamers.
