** Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody has a wooden leg and a magical revolving eye to replace the ones he lost as an Auror fighting against Voldemort. Also, when Professor Kettleburn (the Care of Magical Creatures teacher before Hagrid) retired in order to enjoy time with his remaining limbs, Professor Dumbledore presented him with a set of enchanted wooden prosthetics. Unfortunately, they have to keep being replaced due to Professor Kettleburn's habit of visiting dragon preserves.

* The sligs in the ''Videogame/{{Oddworld}}'' series use mechanical "pants", which come in two forms: a pair of cybernetic legs or a helicopter backpack with a built in grenade launcher. Interesting for this trope, they're not actually fused to the user's body; they're mass produced for the slig species to compensate for the fact that they didn't evolve legs, and operate like the lower half of a suit of PowerArmor

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan,'' Curt Connors has an impressive robotic prosthetic arm, while Doctor Octopus is [[HollywoodCyborg fused]] [[UnusualUserInterface at the spinal cord]] to a harness with [[MultiArmedAndDangerous four]] [[SuperStrength superstrong]] [[CombatTentacles robotic arms]]. Doc Ock uses these as extra arms and feet, and to batter and throw opponents. The three claws at each end can rotate like miniature buzz-saws.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has several characters with artificial limbs of varying quality. Junkrat has a mechanical peg-leg, [=McCree=] and Symmetra both have a relatively nice looking mechanical arm while Torbjörn has a weird claw thing replacing the lower part of his arm. Genji is a full {{Cyborg}} with all of his limbs being mechanical (his Blackwatch skin has the left arm as flesh but the normal skin has it mechanical).

Doomfist's right arm is a cybernetic limb that he uses to wield his PowerFist, but is also strong enough by itself to smash through concrete.

Subverted in that it doesn't function as anything but a display and Jaime remarks that a hook would be more practical, but much to his luck, he does manages to use it as a life-saving improvised shield. It's also an effective tool for slapping, as the Freys learned the hard way during Season 6.
