** Take BioAugmentation, add a generous dose of HollywoodCyborg and BodyHorror, and you've got [[MagicTheGathering Phyrexia]] [[{{Metaphorgotten}} and a couple of spare livers]].

* Used by most characters In ''Webcomic/AlwaysHuman'', "mods" are easy to install or replace and are ubiquitous in ''Webcomic/AlwaysHuman'' to boost aspects of daily life (work/fun/fashion/etc).life: they include fashion options, memory enhancements, health boosters, and work-specific augmentations. Some are as simple as shopping for a new eye colour or [[LittleBitBeastly cat ears]], while others are as intensive as full-body modifications to withstand long space journeys.

* The two-parter ''ComicBook/{{Batman}}'' story ''Infection'' revolves around Batman having to fight two escapees from a governmental science lab who were infected with a [[GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke genetically tailored virus]] created during the Cold War that induced this effect to create {{Super Soldier}}s. The infectees were given increased strength and durability, [[OrganicTechnology built-in guns that fired bullets of sharpened bone]], specialised organs that let them cannibalise human corpses to replenish their supply of ammo, and programmed delusions that compelled them to "retake America from the Commies". As well as the ability to produce pustules that would disperse an infectious variant of the virus, allowing a single survivor to infect dozens, or even hundreds, of individuals.

** The Primaris Marines introduced in Eighth Edition were created to aid the Imperium in its darkest hour. The Space Marine creation process was modified by Archmagos Cawl to include parts of the Custodes' creation process. The Primaris Marines have three additional gene-seed organs whose properties are currently unknown. They are also overall bigger, stronger, and faster than baseline Space Marines.

* ''{{Spacetrawler}}:'' Yuri gets part of an Eeb brain implanted into her own, in order to gain greater technological understanding and limited telekinesis. And she gets cat ears, because she wants to be a CatGirl.
* The K-Series soldiers in ElfBlood were designed before birth to have bodies ultra-compatible with MagiTek implants. They were quite successful.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia'' has a number of alterations made among the humans of Sidonia. The major one being photosynthesis: the last couple of generations are capable of drawing energy from sunlight, and spending some time sunbathing each day means they only have to eat once a week. A third gender was also introduced, having NoBiologicalSex until, usually during their teen years, they fall in love and their body changes to the gender opposite of their intended (not a conscious choice on their part). We're also shown a group of cloned sisters who all have SuperStrength and were rapid-grown to adulthood within a few years. [[spoiler:And then there's the leadership of Sidonia, the Immortal Council, who, as their name suggests, are biologically immortal and do not ever age. Their existence is kept secret from the general populace.]]

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, DesignerBabies, BioPunk, and its SuperTrope, {{Transhuman}}. Can overlap with the StockSuperpower of {{Biomancy}}.

* In TabletopGame/NewVindicators, this pops up with the Primes, man-made Neo-Sapiens (or super powered mutants), with powers of their genetic donors (though not always willing). In one case, cunning terrorists buy samples of this Prime technology and have it used by their duplicating leader to impregnate several women-leading to supers not only with doctored in super powers, but the man's own duplicating power as well.
* A relatively trivial operation for the Sephirotic Empires in ''OrionsArm''. Life forms who have altered their bodies without the addition of machine parts are known as "bioborgs" in the series parlance.

* Literature/WhateleyUniverse: It's how Delta Spike went from a nerdy teen inventor to a super-strong energy blaster with the MostCommonSuperpower. She was experimented on by the dreaded Dr. Pygmalion. The doc's other experiments have all that, plus they are his mindslaves.
* Happened to [[ShadowhunterPeril the Architect]] in 1943 at the hands of Nazis, but the actual events of this time period take place on a different storyline called Upworld, Downworld. He was part of a highly unstable project by Nazi Germany to create a SuperSoldier race of Nazis. Because of the danger this would theoretically pose to human lives, they used prisoners in the concentration camps. They infused demonic steroids within his body. The result augmented his muscular strength and turned his bones into a kind of living metal. [[TooDumbToLive Naturally after discovering his new abilities, he killed the people who slaughtered his family and then escaped.]]

* ''Literature/TheVagrantTrilogy'': Of a sort. The Uncivil uses "necrotech" to enhance her followers. This consists of dead limbs infused with her essence and grafted onto humans, giving them powers and abilities that have nothing to do with the original function of the limbs.
