* The artificial humans ([[FantasticSlur "arties"]]) of ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' were specifically built to serve as soldiers in wartime but were afforded full personhood rights in the courts. They are still discriminated against both for being unnatural (true) and for being prone to violence (debated).

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'', we get Shadow Lady, a WhatIf [[{{Brainwashed}} variation]] of [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]], [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[{{Cyborg}} brainwashed cyborg minion]] by Shadaloo. Before she was [[UnwillingRoboticization forcibly roboticized]], Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, and in retaliation, she was kidnapped, cyborgized, and experimented on for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon top operative]]. Unlike Shadow--a roboticized Charlie Nash, who escaped shortly after being transformed--Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to Shadow Lady's programming so she would [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remain fully obedient]] to Bison at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Chun-Li's formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it]] [[EmotionlessGirl experienced no emotion apart from being a killing machine]] and being an assassin for Shadaloo - in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chun-Li would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a brainwashed minion for Shadaloo wouldn't go away overnight]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this was augmented to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. She shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. [[spoiler:In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]

** Arcueid in ''VisualNovel/{{Tsukihime}}'' is an artificial [[strike:human]] True Ancestor, created for the purpose of killing Demon Lords and Dead Apostles. She doesn't get all angsty because she doesn't seem to possess [[AngstWhatAngst that]] emotion.
*** Wasn't Arcuied only "created" to hunt Dead Apostles in the sense that she was carefully raised from birth to be a killing machine, rather than actually created as an artificial being? Now her Dead Apostle "sister" Altrouge on the other hand...
*** It's kinda tricky. True Ancestors as a whole were created by Gaia (and corrupted by Brunestead, the Type of the Crimson Moon) as an Artificial Type (A planet's Ultimate One) in response to humanity, and probably aren't even born naturally. It seems that Arcueid was "created" to hunt Demon Lords in both senses; she was trained to do so, without any other unnecessary education, but it also seems that the True Ancestors guided her creation, causing her to be a perfect vessel for the Crimson Moon, something that the original Crimson Moon couldn't even manage himself.

* Despite being a fantasy setting, ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}''[='=]s core world of Golarion has a artificially-made race called androids who were created by technological rather than magical means. Their mysterious origins lie in the gigantic spaceship that crashed into the planet about 8000 years ago. Roughly resembling humans, they possess a metallic sheen to their eyes, have circuitry-tattoos all over their body, and their nanite-infused red blood is watery and almost translucent; despite this, they are (as far as anyone knows) entirely biological, internal organs and all. They do have trouble processing the emotions of others as well as their own, and get a natural penalty to their Charisma; but depending on their stats, they do have the capability to be as empathetic as a normal human. Similarly, nor are their cerebral abilities set in stone, despite getting a natural bonus to their Intelligence.
** {{Word of God}} has revealed a bit more about them. While they might possess a sex drive, androids cannot biologically reproduce. They age mentally and eventually “die”, but their bodies merely look more “timeworn” than going all wrinkly. It has been stated that their skeletons “probably look freaky compared to a human’s”. Yet perhaps most interestingly is that they have as much of a soul as any other human in the setting, meaning when they die, their souls are judged as equally as any other mortal in the afterlife. This raises some interesting questions in Golarion’s fantasy setting, where construct creatures normally do not possess neither souls, nor full sentience (or at least don’t gain them without supernatural means).

Bioroids are loathed because they're A.I. based organisms and there is FantasticRacism against them. Notably, one of the main characters, Isla, is a Bioroid living in disguise as a human after escaping her SerialKiller master. One of the plots in the book is how Bioroid status begins to change once BrainUploading becomes possible.
