* ''VideoGame/SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' features the "Bioenhancement Center" base facility, which increases the morale (i.e. experience level) of all units built at a base by 2. The "Cyborg Factory" Secret Project, the movie for which provides the page quote, places a Bioenhancement Center in each one of your bases for free. In addition, several technologies have to do with varying levels of cyborgdom, most notably "Neural Grafting" (which enables Bioenhancement Centers), "Mind/Machine Interface" (which enables The Cyborg Factory and for some reason allows you to build helicopters) and "Homo Superior" (which is explained in-game as creating cyborg {{Ubermensch}}en--complete with a quote from Creator/FriedrichNietzsche).

* The Word of Blake in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' have plenty of these in their ranks.

to:

* In ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'', implants and augments are available. They range from basic replacement limbs for crippled veterans to full-body musculature replacement with sub-dermal armor plating. The more extreme replacements are often only available to government operatives, [[PowerDegeneration and typically come with a host of horrible side effects]] like the aforementioned muscles requiring surgery whenever damaged and constant painkiller usage. The genocidal Word of Blake invested heavily in ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'' have plenty of these in their ranks.cybernetics, and the invading Clans likewise had a fondness for overt replacement cybernetics without the usual faux-flesh, further stigmatizing cyborgs.

* The Terrans in ''{{Starcraft}}'' do so slightly for their Marines, and heavily for their Ghosts, [[RestrainingBolt who not only have inhibitors]], but also other enhancements to increase their effectiveness including ocular implants. The Protoss, on the other hand, have Dragoons, which are fallen comrades brought back in robotic bodies. Dragoons are especially revered among their people for their dedication and bravery. ''Starcraft II'' will feature the Dark Templar equivalent, Warp Stalkers, as well as the new breed of Dragoon, the Immortals.

** The Technomages in the SpinOff ''Series/{{Crusade}}'' are also cyborg. This mechanical enhancement is what allows them to do portents that looks like magic.

* ''Franchise/KamenRider.'' It's been a while since this was anything like standard, and cyborgs are not a RecurringElement anymore, but the old-school Showa-era Riders were either (a) kidnapped by bad guys and put through UnwillingRoboticisation to serve them, escaped brainwashing, and kicked MonsterOfTheWeek butt (literally. [[FinishingMove RIDER]] [[CallingYourAttacks KIIIIIICK]]!) or (b) were upgraded by good guys to fight the rising evil organization, usually after losing a friend or family member (or several!) to the bad guys. If ''Film/KamenRiderG'' doesn't count, the last such Rider was Kotaro Minami of ''Series/KamenRiderBlack'' and ''Series/KamenRiderBlackRX,'' in 1988-89, although Series/KamenRiderDouble's [[spoiler: Philip is a person made of data who was used by the bad guys to create the Gaia Memories]], which is this trope in spirit.

** Although Heisei-era ''Kamen Rider'' franchise discarded this from their recurring elements, [[spoiler: Ryoma Sengoku/Kamen Rider Duke, a villain from ''Series/KamenRiderGaim'', is one straight rare Heisei-era example though this is temporary]].
