* ''Pinball/Centaur'' may well be an UrExample, as the title creature depicted on the backglass is a mix of human, horse, and OrganicTechnology motorcycle.

* TheWindupGirl is set in a future, post-peak oil Thailand where calories are the most important resource and genetically-engineered organisms, including man-made plagues, are common.
* BelDameApocrypha by Kameron Hurley, is set in the far future on a planet where descendants of Muslim colonists have schismed into two warring countries. Since this world is arid, water intensive animal husbandry isn't used. Instead insects have been engineered to be the main source of protein and the level of genetic engineering is so advanced, the insects have become replacements for electronic equipment. Also there are humans who have evolved on this world with the ability to control these insects via pheromones. The war between the two countries also makes extensive use of biological warfare, it's reached a point where the population has to regularly be checked and operated on for cancerous growths.

* In BabylonFive, Bio-Tech is the purview of the most advanced races. The Vorlon and Shadow ships are stated to be bio-ships, and it's hinted through their aesthetics, similar to those of the Vorlons and Shadows, that so are the other First One ships. To raise the tech level of their client races (Minbari for the Vorlons and Drakh for the Shadow) they grant them bio-tech (mostly ships armor). It's also heavily implied in the last episode of season 4 that bio-tech is also the future of human technology as a human from AD 1000000 is shown boarding a bio-ship right before the Sun goes Nova.

* The {{GURPS}} supplement "Bio-Tech" is all about Biopunk.
** The ''TranshumanSpace'' setting has BioPunk elements, including bioroids (biological androids), bioshells (biological bodies controlled by [[ArtificialIntelligence AIs]] or [[BrainUploading ghosts]]), parahumans and genetically-engineered oddities such as pharm goats (goats that produce drugs in their milk). 4th Edition ''Bio-Tech'' is heavily informed by ''TranshumanSpace'', which in turn was based on the vignettes in 3rd Edition ''Bio-Tech''.
* EclipsePhase is PostCyberPunk, but most of the modifications available are biological in nature, and bio-morphs (bodies which are fundamentally organic-- but still often weird) are culturally preferred over Synth-Morphs (robot bodies-- derogatorily called the "Clanking Masses") or Pods (half-synth, half-biological bodies, the name comes from the derogatory "Pod-People," a riff on how the biological parts of the bodies are grown). For an example of the sort of bio-mods you can get in this game, see the Sex Switch-- which [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin switches your sex]] at will-- or the Skinflex-- which allows you to make major cosmetic alterations to yourself in around ten minutes.

* 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.

* Simliar to above, That [[Franchie/PlanetOfTheApes Planet of Apes films]] are have some elements in both Classic and Reboot, But more on Reboot about Genetic Evolve Apes that take over world, By man-made virus that kill [[spoiler: 90% of human population]].

* 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.
