* Pretty much the point of Creator/CTPhipps' {{Cyberpunk}} series ''Literature/AgentG'' as the protagonist is one of 26 Letters who are all heavily modified SuperSoldier assassins who have only their brains remaining organic. They aren't alone in this as "Shells" are apparently used by many governments and assassination groups. Regular humans are just completely outclassed by these enhanced individuals but they are able to live otherwise normal lives.

* Creator/NaokoTakeuchi [[WhatCouldHaveBeen once planned]] to make Ami Mizuno of ''Manga/SailorMoon'' a cyborg, to justify her [[TeenGenius incredible intelligence]]. She was even planned to have PinocchioSyndrome and to make a HeroicSacrifice since she "wasn't human anyways", but instead the cyborg elements were incorporated into Hotaru, who had wired limbs and mechanical parts visible through them [[spoiler: (this is due to her father experimenting on her to keep her alive)]]. Hotaru even despairs of her body feeling "bloodless".

* ''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 (for heroic ones) 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]].

* Not really a thing in the classic ''Franchise/MegaMan'' games, but the ''X'' series has a few humans with cybernetic parts grafted onto them, such as Dr. Cain. As the timeline progresses through the ''X'' and ''Zero'' games, it becomes more and more common for humans and Reploids alike to become cyborgs. By the ''ZX'' games, there's very little distinction between human and Reploid, as there are few people on either side that aren't cyborg anymore. [[spoiler: By the next series in the timeline, ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'', they've further homogenized into a single race, then become all but extinct. The Earth is now populated by {{Artificial Human}}s created and left by last of these humans.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', [[spoiler: Finn]] has a strange tendency to lose his arm in any given time-line, generally receiving a clawed cyborg arm that he seems to function well with. This is first seen in the [[spoiler: Farmworld timeline]] introduced in ''The Lich'', where he had a mechanical arm with no explanation. His [[spoiler: prior incarnation before the timelines diverged, Shoko]] had a very similar one, only built by Princess Bubblegum to replace the arm [[spoiler: her parents sold to buy a computer]]. Since then, it's [[spoiler: happened twice in the main timeline; thrice if you count pillow-world as part of the main timeline.]] He made do with a succession of kludgy artificial arms given to him by various princesses the first time, a [[spoiler: pillow arm in the pillow world]], and then, via a complicated series of events involving a curse and some magic blood, [[spoiler: regrew a natural seeming arm,]] which he later lost when [[spoiler: his grass sword became sentient and burst out of his arm.]] Since then, he's used an intelligent mechanical arm which becomes various tools in response to voice commands. He's also mentioned wanting bionic legs, though this might be a joke. He does seem to avert CyberneticsWillEatYourSoul quite well.
** This is also the most likely explanation of Finn's auto-tune voice, which he supposedly got from swallowing a tiny computer. [[spoiler: He sure does seem to be destined to become a cyborg, doesn't he?]]

* From ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series' backstory comes Pelinal Whitestrake, the legendary 1st Era hero of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] [[TheBerserker berserker]]. Believed to have been a [[EternalHero Shezarrine]], [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnations]] of the spirit of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] Lorkhan (known to the Imperials as "[[IHaveManyNames Shezarr]]"), Pelinal came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. Per WordOfGod, Pelinal is [[{{Expy}} heavily inspired]] by ''Franchise/TheTerminator''. He wore full plate mail, blessed by the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]] no less, at a time when only the [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] could craft it, and was nearly indestructible as a result. He had a hole in his chest and [[LiteralChangeOfHeart a red diamond instead of a heart]], symbolizing his connection with the heartless god Lorkhan. When he wanted you dead, there was very little that could stop him. Additionally, he had knowledge of future events sprinkled into his insane ramblings, with some sources suggesting that he was legitimately from the future. To quote ''The Song of Pelinal'':
--> ''"... [And then] Kyne granted Perrif another symbol, a diamond soaked red with the blood of elves, [whose] facets could [un-sector and form] into a man whose every angle could cut her jailers and a name: PELIN-EL [which is] "The Star-Made Knight" [and he] was arrayed in armor [from the future time]."''

* [[http://sharknob.deviantart.com/art/STREET-FIGHTER-DESTINY-DROID-LI-432375710 This alternate take on]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperheroes Shadow Lady]], a [[UnwillingRoboticization cyborgized]] [[ReforgedIntoAMinion and]] [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul brainwashed]] WhatIf PaletteSwap of Chun-Li. Instead of being forcibly kidnapped by Shadaloo, (as she was in the game), Chun-Li dies 15 minutes after giving birth, and it's unknown who the child's father was, as she was dating Ryu and Dan at the same time. Hearing that Chun-Li died, Shadaloo decided to steal her body, as she wasn't properly buried with the purpose of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. Fast forward 30 years later, she CameBackWrong as an ultra high-tech {{Cyborg}} killing machine developed by Shadaloo. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's top assassin. Before her transformation into Shadow Lady, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, so it's apparent that her cyborgization was done in retaliation for her foiling many of their plans. And unlike Shadow (a cyborgified Charlie Nash), who escaped shortly after being transformed, Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to her programming so she remains fully obedient to Shadaloo at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. Since then, Bison, who had been looking for a potential new test subject for creating a prototype super soldier for Shadaloo after Shadow fled, found this in his arch-nemesis Chun-Li. Shadaloo had vastly improved on the conversion process since then, and it was only fitting that the one constant pain in Bison's side be given this 'honor', and hopefully, turn her into their main pawn against Interpol. But unlike Shadow (a cyborgized Charlie), who only received a few mechanical upgrades, Shadow Lady was designed to be a complete robot and be enslaved to her programming so she won't rebel against Shadaloo and follow their orders at all times. Designed to be the ultimate anti-Interpol weapon, she was sent out by the heinous Shadaloo leader to gather information on her former allies so they too could be turned into mindless cyborgs like Chun-Li and Charlie Nash were. It's unknown how much of Shadow Lady's body is organic and how much is mechanical, but it's speculated that much of her body, apart from her brain is full of servos, wires, circuit boards and motors. It's possible that M. Bison may have used the same technology on her that was used to create Cyber-Akuma. Even her iconic OdangoHair are now RobotAntennae, as it's speculated that she is receiving orders from Shadaloo and that she is being controlled via remote control. And given that she no longer breathes, her face is given a breathing apparatus, making her a female DarthVaderClone, so expect her voice to either sound metallic or machine-like as well if possible, which is tied to the mask. As Shadow Lady, her formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, her body's physiology altered so it experienced no emotion apart from being an soulless and emotionless killing machine and serving as M. Bison's right-hand; and in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. Upon completion, her programming was complemented by extensive exercise to tone her muscles and combat training to ensure that she had all the skills required, including the use of a variety of weapons, though she would rarely need to use them. With her training complete, Shadow Lady's speed, combat skills and stealth capabilities made her the ideal assassin for Shadaloo. In a short period of time, this what-if version of Chun-Li goes from a strong-willed woman to a completely submissive gynoid working for one of the most notorious gaming bosses. What's sad to see that if her child (who may have been grown up by now) decides to fight her, they don't know that [[ArchnemesisMom their mother has been revived as a brainwashed and cyborgized killing machine]]. Also, neither Ryu nor Dan are aware that [[RoboticSpouse their former date]] has been revived as a {{Brainwashed}} RobotGirl. All in all, while Chun-Li is back again, she's now more of an EmptyShell, [[LaserGuidedAmnesia with no record of her old memories]] as they've been [[BlankSlate overridden]] with pre-programmed directives ordering her to be an [[ReforgedIntoAMinion emotionless and ruthless]] [[RoboticPsychopath assassin for Shadaloo]], essentially condemning her to a FateWorseThanDeath via DeathOfPersonality, LossOfIdentity and CyberneticsEatYourSoul. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a minion for Shadaloo wouldn't magically go away]] overnight should she become a good person again. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. But she's now a roboticized assassin-droid, so she has no control over the actions of what her body does.
