* ''Franchise/KamenRider.'' It's been a while since this was anything like standard, but the old-school 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.

* In ''Videogame/{{XCOM 2}}'', the Commander ''was'' one while they were imprisoned by ADVENT. The opening of the game involves the forcible removal of the cybernetic parts still linking the Commander to the ADVENT network.

** ''Cyberspace'' (Iron Crown Enterprises), ''Cyberhero'' (HeroSystem), ''{{GURPS}} Cyberpunk'', ''Cyborg Commando'' (New Infinities Productions), ''Amazing Engine: Kromosome'' (TSR)...
* ''{{Rifts}}'' splits them into several classifications: Cybernetics are basically mechanical prosthetics (which come in fully mechanical or organic Bio-Systems), while Bionics actually augment the user to combat-capable levels, and include weapons. Cyborgs come in three levels: Minor cybernetic/bionic enhancements, Partial Conversion (all limbs and some torso reinforcement) and Full Conversion (Entire body except for the brain and spinal column).

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' has [[spoiler:Conrad Kellogg]], the mercenary who killed your character's spouse, who was cybernetically enhanced by [[spoiler:the Institute]]. His enhancements include a cybernetic limb actuator and pain inhibitor, as well as a cybernetic brain augmenter that you have to use after killing him in order to learn his memories and find out how to get inside [[spoiler:the Institute]] so that you can find your son.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' allows the Chosen One to strip the plates from a set of combat armor and implant them under his/her skin. There are also special "memory modules" which enhance some of the SPECIAL statistics.

* Cybernetics have become more widespread and advanced by the time of ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance''. Many of the enemies Raiden faces are fellow cyborgs. The most extreme example is [[spoiler:Senator Armstrong, who has so many nanomachines in his body that he's a cyborg on the cellular level.]]

* ''TabletopGame/MageTheAscension'' from the OldWorldOfDarkness included Iteration X, "mages" who could do impossible things with cybernetics and robotics. Besides generally being cyborgs themselves, they frequently made use of [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} HIT Marks]] against their enemies. Occasionally other science-focused mages, even in the Traditions, also created cyborgs. The degree to which [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Cybernetics Ate Your Soul]] varied with the amount of replacement and the manner in which your storyteller enforced the Resonance and Paradox rules. As a nice nod to reality, people with any kind of cybernetic enhancements have to get a [[RequiredSecondaryPowers full-body reinforcement]].
