* ''VideoGame/BeyondEarth'' has an entire affinity based on cybernetic enhancement. Factions choosing Supremacy as their primary affinity believe in the weakness of the flesh and seek to replace the body using advanced cybernetics.

* Same thing happened in StanislawLem's ''ObservationOnTheSpot'', only TurnedUpToEleven. People of Lusania turned to replacing each cell in their bodies by {{Nanomachines}} in attempt to reach immortality only to run into the "WhoWantsToLiveForever" wall at full speed. Most of the experimental subjects quickly became obsessed with death, [[DeathSeeker trying to kill themselves at all costs]]--which, given the nature of their new bodies, [[MadeOfIndestructium became nigh impossible]], though most persevered. There was ''one'' survivor of the experiment, a philosopher who never had any illusions about the whole experiment to begin with.

* After he got run over by the Sea Train, Franky of ''Manga/OnePiece'' saved himself by replacing just about all his body parts in the front with mechanical parts from a old wrecked warship that was floating around. It should also be noted that Franky built himself. Then there's [[spoiler:Bartholemew Kuma of the Seven Warlords of the Sea]]. Unlike Franky he wasn't built from scraps, and it shows. At this point, it's not clear how much of him is still human, or if he's the equivalent of Film/TheTerminator now. As of chapter 560 [[spoiler:the Pacifista transformation process (which was done gradually over time) was recently completed, leaving him a mute emotionless machine.]]

* ''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 [[{{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]].

* The CIA once attempted to deploy a cat rigged with a surgically-implanted bugging device to listen in on Soviet diplomats' park bench conversations. The project failed when the world's only cyborg spy-cat was hit by a car on its first "mission".

* ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'': several Zentraedi are shown to have mechanical parts (notably half of Breetai's head). In the movie incarnation of the series, the BigBad was permanently wired up and connected to his flagship, acting as a sort of living control computer. ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' shows that humans have begun utilizing cyborg components, and a cyborg pilot proves to be far superior to almost all flesh-and-blood humans, being able to mentally control his machine and withstand far greater G-forces. [[spoiler:The BigBad is the logical conclusion, being an example of BrainUploading of a large number of people into one mind which controls a robotic, but fully human-looking, body.]]

* The titular Film/HardcoreHenry is predominantly mechnical now, his original self being a scientist working in augmentation technology that suffered an accident, forcing his wife to install his prototype limbs in Henry to save him. [[spoiler:Except that's not really the case; Henry is the prototype cybernetic super soldier created by Akan, with several more such soldiers waiting in the wings to be given his memories.]]

** Before that there was Gigan, an alien amalgamation of flesh and robotics. It's not entirely clearly where the natural creature ends and the machine begins, except that he has clearly metal claws and spikes and a mechanical buzzsaw on his chest. In a later film, he's outfitted with rocket engines, a laser beam, and chainsaws in place of his claws.
