* Creator/{{Michelangelo}} is normally strict about adhering to the norms of normal human anatomy, but he deliberately made the hands and head of the ''Art/{{David}}'' overly large, most likely so that people viewing it from far away in a chapel could distinguish these important elements easily.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', the Trolls get this a lot. For starters, the hemospectrum. Different Trolls have different blood colors, affecting their social standing. Those lower on the hemospectrum (reds, oranges, and yellows) are more likely to have psychic powers, while those higher up (blues and purples) are more resistant, and this higher up live longer by centuries. Also their horns are completely different shapes, generally somewhat impossible without body modification (Think Eridan) and in at least one instance (Vriska) they're not even guaranteed to be ''[[UpToEleven symmetrical]]''. For the kids, their eye colors. Dave has blood red, Rose and Roxy have pink, and Dirk has orange.

* The Comicbook/XMen are all "mutants" because of one gene being wonky, resulting in powers ranging from time travel to control over the electromagnetic spectrum to worldwide weather patterns modification. Initially the cause was just unspecified "mutation". The "it's one x-gene" explanation is actually an attempt to clean up the art-major nature of the biology since random mutations being that outright beneficial that many times is statistically impossible. Current issues have been attempting to clean it up further as popular understanding of evolution has increased; usually the explanation nowadays is that it's a gene that evolved the normal way (with some alien help) that is just switched off in most people, with the "mutation" being the flipping of the switch. By implication mutants all have the ''same'' altered genetics, it's just that the general "alter reality" ability manifests differently based on cheap clichéd childhood trauma.

** Killer Croc suffers from a form of atavism, meaning he's inherited animal traits from a human ancestor such as a reptile. What species of reptile had the size and strength Croc does is up for debate.

* ''Literature/{{Hothouse}}'' by Creator/BrianAldiss. It has giant insects, man-eating plants, people growing wings after being [[SpaceIsMagic mutated by space radiation]], the entire planet being covered by a single banyan tree, and ''[[GiantSpider giant plant-spider hybrids]] that use their webs to connect the Earth to the Moon''. The publisher even admitted that he knew it was ridiculously unrealistic, but still published it because it was awesome. Which turned out to be good move, because it ended up winning a Hugo award.

* In ''Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman'', there is an episode generally referred to among fans as 'The Puppy Episode' (#20). In it, G-2 receives a hit that leaves a bit of shrapnel in his head -in an inoperable location. The good Doctor who is the Xavier for the team -and who is repeatedly shown ''not'' to be a medical doctor, but a scientist- decides that the only way to get the shrapnel out is to ''stick G-2 in a giant centrifuge'' normally used for G-forces training. G-2 later escapes and joins his team on the Godphoenix. The final explosion and death throes of the giant mole mecha (yes, really) send the ship into a massive series of spins -which removes the shrapnel. Somehow.
** The puppy of the fan title was rescued by G-2, resulting in his injury. The set-up was to show him as a softer character then the hard revenge-driven type he had so far been shown to be -but how drastically they fail in how medicine really works overshadows the moment of heartwarming.

* Anything and everything about [[FetishFuel vore]]. [[SchmuckBait Don't look for it unless you want to be scarred.]]
** Typical sites actually separate the realistic vore as "Hard vore". Usually it's decided by whether or not there is stomach acid present and whether or not the prey dies. Excretion is not taken into account. If the prey is unharmed, alive, and [[MST3KMantra undigested when they come out]], it still counts as soft.

** The effects of ALZ-113 on the apes are instantaneous. Neurogenesis is inherently a very slow-going process, as more rapid neurogenesis almost inevitably results in death. This does however explain why [[spoiler:ALZ-113 turns out to be fatal to humans.]]
