** Type: Null is a synthetic Pokémon designed to synthesize the strengths of several Pokémon, Pokémon as a weapon against [[EldritchAbomination Ultra Beasts]], allowing it to adapt to any situation. In addition, its appearance [[MixAndMatchCritters resembles a hybrid with several body parts from other creatures attached to it]]. It has a harness on its head that restrains it so it wouldn't go berserk, but it will deliberately break this harness once it trusts its trainer to evolve into Silvally.

* The main character and several members of the supporting case of ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou'' are androids who are oddly biological in some ways (they must eat and sleep and are basically human in personality) and definitely mechanical in others (getting struck by lightning doesn't seriously hurt Alpha, just requires that her skin be re-coated). The rather leisurely plot of the series spends a lot of time focusing on the nature of these androids.

* Touko of ''LightNovel/KaraNoKyoukai'' created a number of perfect copies of herself (physically and mentally) using her skill as a ''dollmaker''. She uses them as backup copies of herself, in the sense of "it doesn't matter if I die because my other bodies will live on and do what I would've done." She doesn't seem to care which one is the original or whether its still alive.
** [[spoiler: As usual - with Kinoko Nasu that is - the 'truth' is more complex. Touko achieved a level of sophistry in "copying" herself, that the copy is no longer distinguishable from the original hence it ceases to be a copy and Touko can no longer tell which self is really "her".]]

** Ryoko was grown from a test-tube by Washuu.
** As is OVA Kagato being he was the hermaphrodite clone of Naja Akara, Washuu's best friend, that took over a Ryoko prototype and split off his female half.
* In the world of ''Anime/TimeOfEve'', all androids must have a holographic halo otherwise they'd be indistinguishable from humans [[spoiler: the lone exception is a bodyguard]]; the titular coffeehouse is the only place where they can turn it off and "relax", and it's revealed can drink coffee, cry, enjoy music, fall in love, and generally behave like RidiculouslyHumanRobots. Oh, and they're ThreeLawsCompliant.
* In ''Manga/TowardTheTerra'', everyone could technically be considered Artificial Humans to some degree, as society under the SD System no longer uses natural birth and all children are developed in {{Uterine Replicator}}s. Within the context of the setting, however, [[spoiler:Physis]] and [[spoiler:Keith]] are especially noteworthy: rather than being concieved using an egg and sperm from pre-selected parents, they were engineered completely artificially by the Mother Computers and grown nearly to physical maturity in PeopleJars - [[spoiler:Physis]], deemed a failed prototype, was decanted fairly young and thereafter rescued by Soldier Blue, but [[spoiler:Keith]] didn't come out of the jar until the age of fourteen.
* ''Manga/{{Trigun}}'''s [[spoiler: Vash, Knives, Tessla, Chronica, Domina, and all the other plants]] are genetically modified alien creatures with some astonishingly human characteristics.
* The Neogenics from the ''Anime/{{Witchblade}}'' anime, who are specifically designed to be Witchblade bearers. They age rapidly, which means Maria is basically a 5 year old girl with the body of a teenager.
* The last guardians of the Pyramid in ''Manga/{{Yaiba}}'', namely Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond [[spoiler: and Emerald]]. The Platina Company is also apparently working on building the Ultimate Fighter.
* The main character and several members of the supporting case of ''Manga/YokohamaKaidashiKikou'' are androids who are oddly biological in some ways (they must eat and sleep and are basically human in personality) and definitely mechanical in others (getting struck by lightning doesn't seriously hurt Alpha, just requires that her skin be re-coated). The rather leisurely plot of the series spends a lot of time focusing on the nature of these androids.



* The Superboy, in the picture above, [[spoiler:is a clone created by the Cadmus organisation in secret, as they knew that at some point, Superman would either die or otherwise become incapacitated in his current role. He's technically not a perfect clone, however; they had to splice in some Lex Luthor DNA to stabilize him, making him... slightly different in powers and personality.]] Oh, and [[BerserkButton don't call him Superboy.]]

* In ''VideoGame/NieR'', as revealed quite late, it turns out that [[spoiler: Nier and almost every other human(except [[Really700YearsOld Emil]] and [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot the Twins]]) are Replicants, clones of people who were made into Gestalts intended to serve as their vessels after the purification of the world. Unfortunately for the plan, they developed minds of their own.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{BlazBlue}}'': The various Murakumo units, of which [[TheWoobie Lambda-11]], [[BrainwashedAndCrazy Mu-12]] ([[spoiler:otherwise known as Noel Vermillion]]), and [[AxCrazy Nu-13]] count among them.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': [[spoiler: Rei Ayanami and Kaworu Nagisa]] are human/Angel clones, and the Evangelions qualify at some level, as they have [[spoiler:biological bodies similar to huge human organisms (actually copied from Adam, but Angels/Apostles in ''Evangelion'' are basically what humans would be if they rejected their "humanity"), a human soul, and are literally called "jinzouningen", meaning "artificial humans"]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Morgan}}'', the company that created Morgan is doing research on nanotech-altered DNA, with Morgan being the most successful product of her series. [[spoiler:It's just too bad that an earlier product turned out to be better at being human than she did.]]
