* In the expansion pack to ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'', called Enemy Within, you have the option to upgrade your troops with gene mods to increase their combat potential. The modifications include, among others, increased muscle density, which allows them to jump to rooftops, a secondary heart, which [[NonLethalKO prevents them from dying instantly to otherwise fatal hits]], and mimetic skin, which lets them blend with the environment.

The more grotesque side of the trope is seen in the EXALT Elite Operatives; it's implied that their augmentations were completely unrestrained, unlike XCOM's, and are proportionally more powerful... however, they're inhumanly pale and you can visibly see that something's very wrong with them. Their gene-mods in the game data reflect this; XCOM gene mods may be powerful, but EXALT gene mods are arguably moreso. XCOM's gene mods are completely "clean" by comparison.

Can be combined with {{Cyborg}}ing for even more body mod fun. Certain types of FunctionalMagic may accomplish the same thing but many or most of them are better listed under MixAndMatchCreature or HybridMonster, and of those remaining, should be looked at with ClarkesThirdLaw in mind. Is a newer trope than cyborging because GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke (and shares some but not all examples with it). Also see OrganicTechnology, LegoGenetics, MagicGenetics, SuperpowerfulGenetics, MixAndMatchCritters, ArtMajorBiology, BioPunk, and its SuperTrope, {{Transhuman}}.
