* Most fanfictions that used science fiction catergory (Like VideoGame/BioShock series of fanfics and it's crossovers) will used several elements from this punk for plot or backstory reasons.
** Most on some Fanasty fanfictions (Like Zelda fanfics) may use some of this if story focuses on human or non-human technology if set in [[UrbanFantasy Modern day]] fantasy or [[DungeonPunk Medieval times with seemly modern day look]].
* VideoGame/PlagueInc, PC expanded Plague Inc: Evolved have creating mods though Steam Workshop, Most of mods are trend with this Punk, Like creating sometime man made virus that make you an Splicer from Bioshock series, Make virus turning un-infected humans into [biological/genetic engineered monsters] to wiped out remaining non-genetic engineered/uninfected humans.
* Some fanfic Author named [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/4614510/ChadR-2014 ChadR-2014]] seems devoted or loving this Punk in some of his Fanfics, That even few of his fanfics that Cybermatics are ether banned or non-existed at all causing somewhat of heavily enforced with NoTranshumanismAllowed trope on Cybermatics.

* The technology of the North in ''XamdLostMemories'' consists of this, including the titular Xamd.
* ''Gunnm'' features this in Venus, where everything is biological: furniture, vehicles and clothes. All of them are genetically enginereed, and [[{{Squick}} based on human DNA]].

* Mira Grant's ''Literature/Parasitology'' revolves around a genetically engineered tapeworm designed to keep people healthy [[spoiler: that winds up integrating itself into people's brains and setting off a Zombie Apocalypse]]. Her ''Literature/{{Newsflesh}}'' trilogy, about what civilization would be like after a ZombieApocalypse if it didn't collapse also counts.

* In Mark Hodder's Burton & Swinburne stories, everyday technology has been advanced by the Technologist caste with the two main branches being the steampunk Engineers and the biotech Eugenicists. Among the Eugenicists' household innovations have been the specially bred dogs and parakeets used for sending messages, giant swans that tow people on kites, draft horses capable of hauling house-sized weights, and the broom cat - a shaggy cat that slides across the floor trapping dirt in its fur which it then eats.

Among the Eugenicists' innovations have been the specially bred dogs and parakeets used for sending messages. The dogs are fast and have high intelligence and can memorize up to 50 different addresses so they carry mail between houses, while the parakeets are used by the post office to deliver spoken messages like a telegram. Drawbacks have cropped up in the breeding process, so the parakeets are biologically inclined to cuss like a sailor at people, so only the Postal Service will use them. The dogs have their own genetic flaw in that they have a higher that normal appetite so people who use the dog courier service end up paying a lot for dog food.

It should be noted that the line between Bio Punk and {{Cyber Punk}} is very thin, and the majority of cyberpunk stories will contain some limited Bio Punk elements. The line between Bio Punk and {{Post Cyberpunk}} is sometimes even thinner, with Post-Cyberpunk sharing many more elements with Biopunk in addition to not using as many Cyberpunk elements as its precursor due being a Fuzzy concept.

* This is the core of the technology in the future colony setting of Adam Warren's ''Titans: Scissors, Paper, Stone'', with a smattering of CyberPunk (like the ubiquitous neural jacks and Prosthetic Lass herself), but the biotech is the main emphasis, even forming the basis of the future slang used.
