* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' has Mileena, who was made to [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 replace Kitana]]. As of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', this happens to Kano as well. [[EvenEvilHasStandards He's not pleased about this.]]

* ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' has Mileena, Mileena. She's a clone of Kitana who was originally made to [[VideoGame/MortalKombat9 replace Kitana]]. As her, with that plan being scrapped due to [[NightmareFace her extremely obvious physical deformity]]. In her ''Mortal Kombat X'' ending, she stumbles an incubation chamber containing countless identical clones of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', this happens to Kano as well. [[EvenEvilHasStandards He's not pleased about this.]]herself, and finds that she and they are share a HiveMind-style PsychicLink, multiplying Mileena's already high threat level by several orders of magnitude.

* In Steven L. Kent's "Clone series" (''The Clone Republic'', ''Rogue Clone'', '' The Clone Alliance'', ''The Clone Elite'', ''The Clone Betrayal'', and so on) all the enlisted men in every branch of the mili3tary are clones, and very disposable ones at that. In an interesting take on this concept, each individual clone knows that his fellow men are clones, but believes that he is a normal human. The inherent FridgeLogic in this scenario is given a rather inventive HandWave too.

* The Nixels from ''WesternAnimation/{{Nixels}}'', save for their king, the army's major, and a genetically modified muscular minion, consists of multiple clones of three base models, primarily used for swarm attacks.

* You can do this in ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' 5e [[GameBreaker by abusing the combination of the spells Simulacrum and Wish]]. Simulacrum is used to create a copy of the caster with half the HP and all of the spell slots (though with no ability to regain spells), and Wish can be used to duplicate the effects of any spell. To create the clone army, you cast Simulacrum, creating a clone of yourself with the ability to use Wish. The clone uses Wish to duplicate the effects of your spell, creating another clone who can ''also'' use Wish. That clone also duplicates the Simulacrum spell, resulting in yet another Wish-capable clone, and so on.[[note]]The older editions of D&D would put checks in place against game-breaking loopholes like this,

A common source of soldiers in science fiction is cloning. This can make sense if you want to mass produce one exceptionally good soldier or don't want to spend much time creating and raising an army of DesignerBabies from scratch. Typically they grow to adulthood at an accelerated rate as well. Fridgelogic, however, may reveal that given how difficult assembling a single amoeba would be, mass chemical fabrication of multiceular human bodies would be the most counterproductive thing ever, and so choosing to do this rather than recruit them from amongst the populace where all that has already been done for them like normal is far superior.

* The [[FossilRevival Predacons]] of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' were intended to be an army of war beasts in the service of the Decepticons. However, only the first of them, Predaking, ever made it to the battlefield; when he proved [[ItCanThink far smarter than anticipated]], Megatron began to worry that the Predacons could become as dangerous to the Decepticons as they were to the Autobots.

* In the military science fiction novel ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', the futuristic LadyLand Azania's [[AmazonBrigade armed forces]] are, technically speaking, increasingly becoming this, as more clones are recruited. Subverted, in that the clones are individually designed by their parents, not made according to one template ordered by the military authorities, since cloning is Azania's [[HomosexualReproduction normal mode]] of reproduction.
