** Rendain has a very prominent mechanical right arm. In battle, the arm can detach from Rendain's body at the shoulder point and float mid-air a small distance away from him with only a couple of red bolts of energy tethering the arm to the still attached but now rotating propeller engine looking part of the arm. With his arm floating like this, Rendain has a wide range of attack.

* Alexei Maresiev, Soviet WWII ace pilot. Lost his lower legs in the war, replaced them with prostheses, and continued flying and fighting. Became a very decorated serviceman. A well-known Soviet novel, ''Story of a Real Man'', was based on his biography. Maresiev's endeavor was inspired by a similar but lesser-known story of Alexander Prokofiev-Seversky, the Russian WWI one-legged ace pilot (who would leave Russia during the RedOctober and become more famous in United States as the founder of Republic Aviation, indirectly responsible for such airplanes as the P-47 and A-10).

* Pilots of the ''VideoGame/StarFox'' universe have metal legs to replace their normal ones. For years fans have created fan theories as to their purpose, ranging from helping the pilots deal with extreme G-Force to being augmented for field work. Years later, [[WordOfGod creator Miyamoto]] finally confirmed the ''real'' reason the Star Fox team have metal legs, it was so the PettingZooPeople would appear more human to the player. That, and they [[RuleOfCool looked cool]].

* Kat in ''VideoGame/HaloReach'' has a mechanical right arm. Which is a bit odd in that there seems to be no other reason to put it into a much thinner and more skeletal casing than the other arm of the body armor, but to make it obviously visible.
** In the expanded universe, Captain Ponder, Eddie Underwood and an officer overseeing the SPARTAN-III Alpha Company's augmentation procedure named De Guzman also have robotic limbs. Ponder and Eddie have artificial arms like Kat, while De Guzman has a synthetic left leg.

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has a few examples of confirmed artificial limbs, such as Junkrat's pegleg and {{McCree}}'s left arm, and several more examples where it's ambiguous whether the character has a replacement limb or is just wearing close-fitting armour. For example, fans have noted that Pharah's knees and elbows look more like mechanical joints than real ones, and Hanzo's shins look too thin to contain an actual lower leg inside the metal plating. An Overwatch panel at SDCC '16 confirmed that the only characters with replacement limbs are Genji, Junkrat, {{McMcree}}, Symmetra and Torbjörn.
