*Synesthesia is likely another example (likely because science isn't completely sure what causes it, but its most probably biological) It's a sensory condition where two or more senses are connected, causing synesthetes to see sound, or taste words when they speak, for example. As it's something you need to be born with, many synesthetes don't realize that most people don't experience the world the way they do until they're older.

* [[CombatSadomasochist The Pain]] in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' uses [[BeeBeeGun weaponized bees]] as part of his [[QuirkyMiniBossSquad quirk]]. One of these bee types are "bullet bees", which are bees which he grows within his body. He attacks with them by spitting them out like bullets at an enemy, which bore into their targets and eat their flesh from the inside out until they are removed.

** Quiet of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain'' [[spoiler:actually drinks and breathes through her skin. Which gives a bit of a justification for [[MsFanservice her running around on a battlefield practically naked]]. If she is completely submerged, however, she will drown just like a plant would, and although you can't use this against her in-game, she can also apparently be killed by being splashed in salt water.]]

* Michael Lotito was famous for eating objects such as metal, glass, televisions, a bicycle, shopping carts, a coffin, and, over the course of two years, ''an entire Cessna 150.'' He also drank large amounts of mineral oil to help wash these things down. He didn't suffer any kind of health problems from his diet, although he did mention bananas and hard-boiled eggs made him sick.

* TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'s [[SpaceMarine Adeptus]] [[SuperSoldier Astartes]]. [[LongList To wit they have aside from the normal human organs 19 implanted organs]]: A secondary heart. An organ that increases bone structure and makes their ribcage ''bulletproof''. [[note]]to small arms anyway[[/note]] An organ that makes their muscles grow vastly larger and more powerful. An organ that increases their blood's clotting ability. An organ that allows them to only need 4 hours of sleep and can go for two weeks without any sleep at all. A pre-stomach that can neutralize otherwise poisonous or indigestible foods. An organ that allows them to "learn from eating". [[note]]Four nerve bundles are implanted connecting the spine and the stomach wall. Able to 'read' or absorb genetic material consumed by the marine, the omophagea transmits the gained information to the Marine's brain as a set of memories or experiences[[/note]] A third lung. An implant giving them far-superior vision to humans. An implant that makes them immune to motion sickness and the ability to consciously filter sounds. An implant that allows them to enter a healing coma/suspended animation. [[note]]This can last for a long time, the longest recorded period spent in suspended animation was undertaken by Silas Err of the Dark Angels, who was revived after 567 years[[/note]] An implant that controls the amount of melanin in their skin.[[note]]It also protects the Marine from other forms of radiation.[[/note]] An organ that quickly filters the Marine's blood, rendering them immune to most poisons. [[note]]This emergency detoxification usually renders the Marine unconscious while his blood is circulated at high speed. The organ's everyday function is to monitor the entire circulatory system and allow other organs to function effectively[[/note]] An organ that enhances a Space Marine's sense of taste to such a high degree that he can identify many common chemicals by taste alone, a Marine can even track down his target by taste. An implant that allows a Space Marine to sweat a substance that coats the skin and offers resistance to extreme heat and cold and can even provide some protection for the marine in a vacuum. An organ that allows the marine to [[HollywoodAcid spit a blinding contact poison, the poison is also corrosive and can even burn away strong metals given sufficient time]]. Implants that are the base for the the other organs. [[OverlyLongGag And finally]] an implant that allows a Space Marine to interface directly with his PowerArmor. Many Black Library writers and ''40K'' characters use the term "posthuman" to refer to Astartes for a reason.

* [[OzzyOsbourne OZZY, the mutant Prince of Darkness.]] Medical Science had no explanation for why he hadn't drugged himself to death many times over. Medical Science decided to investigate. Medical Science found that Ozzy has several genes that allow him to metabolize opiates and alcohol [[ImmuneToDrugs far more efficiently]] than most humans. Caffeine? Not so much!
