* The ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' features occasional appearances by the K'Chain Che'Malle. Considered the native demons of the Malazan world, they were sapient dinosaur analogues. The warrior caste surgically replaced both lower arms with [[AnatomyArsenal massive blades]].

** He also gets a severe case of CyberneticsEatYourSoul in that when he hops into his big ass combat suit, lowering the proportion of organic body, he flips out, becoming a loud, charging berzerker.

** He also gets displays a severe case bit of CyberneticsEatYourSoul - his personality changes from a fairly gentle and intelligent demeanor (it's noted that he will work for free or give bounty money to the victims of those he hunts) to aggressive and violent when he merges with his [[MiniMecha armorsuit]], though he maintains control of himself as seen on Norion (where the player sees him both in and out of his suit - out of the suit, he calmly informs Samus of a tactical decision, while in the suit he starts shouting at her to get a move on to the objective while brandishing weapons). Justified in that when he hops into the suit could be designed to alter his big ass combat personality to make him more aggressive, as it's noted in his scan entry that he isn't a proficient fighter without it. However, [[spoiler:after his corruption, he does get a terminal case of straight CyberneticsEatYourSoul as seen when, without his suit, lowering the proportion of organic body, he flips out, becoming gloats and causes some destruction to hinder Samus but is easily fended off (and even makes a loud, charging berzerker.remark while retreating that could show he's not yet fully corrupted), but in his suit he goes full-on berserker, going as far as to throw Samus' gunship at her.]]

* What's that? The [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] ComicBook/{{Aquaman}} isn't "grim and gritty" enough for [[UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks the 1990s]]? I know, let's have piranhas chew his left hand off! Keen! We can give him a [[SwissArmyAppendage cool retractable hook]], and he can grow a beard while he's at it. (Whether Aquaman growing a beard was, in fact, Aquaman GrowingTheBeard is a question this editor leaves as an exercise for the reader.)
