* ''TheVentureBrothers'' has this as a running theme, as Hank and Dean had been a succession of clones, educated by computers programmed decades ago, and virtually cut off from the outside world. As super-science mishaps and plain stupidity killed them, they were replaced, starting over in their teenage forms. Once all their reserve clones had been killed off, their father has been marginally more concerned with keeping them alive, and they've been encountering the larger world, largely unequipped to deal with it.

* ''PrometheanTheCreated'' plays this both ways: the [[ToBecomeHuman New Dawn]] does get rid of the inherent problem of [[UncannyValley Disquiet]], so the now-human Promethean can interact with humans. However, it's a common occurrence for Prometheans to lose all memories of the Pilgrimage upon obtaining mortality, which carries its own set of problems.

* ''PrometheanTheCreated'' plays ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'' presents this both ways: as the [[ToBecomeHuman New Dawn]] does get rid ultimate goal of most [[{{Golem}} Prometheans]]. The good news is that they can succeed in transforming themselves into humans, granting them souls and freeing them from the inherent problem combination HatePlague and WalkingWasteland effects of [[UncannyValley Disquiet]], so the now-human Promethean can interact with humans. However, it's Disquiet.

[[spoiler: Ultimately, it's revealed that they could naturally regain their hearts over time and were never truly inhuman.]]

She was a nine-tailed fox that wanted to be human, so she absorbed the soul of a dying human mage during a battle and gains human form. However, she doesn't see this as really being 'human', and wanted to go so far to be human in more than just form.
