* TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}} has similar stuff, albeit -at least in the rulebook- in considerably less numbers than Cyberware and like the latter [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul cost Humanity Points]].

** ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'': [[spoiler:Helheim fruits alter the eater's DNA, converting them into an Inves. While it proves a Deadly Upgrade for most people, in Kouta and Kaito's cases, exposure to the Forbidden Fruit and a virus carried by the Inves (respectively) ultimately led to Kouta's upgrade into a human-looking Overlord and Kaito's transformation, triggered by his devouring a Helheim fruit, into a monster Overlord form called Lord Baron.]]

* The ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' setting has this as part of it's backstory with the creation of the titular Gears, genetically and magically engineered living weapons that were eventually hijacked and controlled into revolting, leading to [[TheGreatOffscreenWar The Crusades]]. Even in the present, where most of the Gears have been wiped out, there are still some that continue to pop up and cause trouble. In fact, protagonist Sol Badguy is both one of the original creators of the Gears and the original [[SuperPrototype Prototype Gear.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/OrphanBlack'', a series about [[CloningBlues human cloning]] and genetic modification and the ethical consequences thereof. Most pronounced with the Neolutionists, a faction who believe strongly in humanity using technology to take control of its own evolution, and who play a major role in the ominous Dyad Institute. Also contains lots of icky medical research and biotech like cyborg maggots implanted in people's cheeks.

* ChinaMieville's ''Literature/BasLagCycle'', though closer to DungeonPunk, has elements of this with the [=ReMade=]: bio-thaumaturges can warp flesh, bone and biology to heal, remake a being as something new, or (far, far more often) to punish.
