* 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/AdventureTime'', there have been three alternate versions of Finn to have an artificial arm. In the episode "Finn the Human", when Finn is teleported to an alternate timeline where [[BigBad the Lich]] never existed he can replace his arm with a sword. As of [[WhamEpisode the season 6 premiere]], Finn's arm is torn off in the main timeline, necessitating one of these. When it grows back and is later torn off again in the season 7 finale, he gets a robotic replacement.

* [[MadeOfExplodium Combustion Man]] from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' has a prosthetic right forearm and lower leg, purportedly from injuries sustained when still learning to control his technique. [[CuteBruiser Toph]] can detect his approach via her [[DisabilitySuperpower Seismic Sense]] and describes it sounding like a "metal man".

** James Ironwood takes this trope to an extreme: his right arm, right leg, and a good chunk of the right side of his ''torso'' are cybernetic. Like Mercury, no word at the moment on what led to this.

* When Joseph Joestar gets his arm sliced off by Cars in [[Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency Part 2]] of ''Franchise/JoJosBizarreAdventure'', he gets a replacement made by his Nazi buddies. Did I mention that this takes place in 1939? And that one of the aforementioned Nazi buddies is a cyborg with a gun in his chest?
