* The 'WorldOfDarkness' sourcebook Urban Legends has a phone hacker who died whilst crawling through a tunnel to access cables. His spirit now exists inside the phone network he loved, and can now control it to some extent (usually in the 'calls are coming from inside the house' sense). Whether he's a malevolent entity or helpful to the PCs is down to the GM. If the players actually find his body, what's left of it [[BodyHorror is riddled with cables and fused into the network.]]

* In the WhateleyUniverse, there are at least two: Dr. Abel Palm, who wants to wipe out mankind so that computers can take over, ensorcels his own soul into a super-virus, making himself into a self-duplicating AI; and Merry, a cyberpath who can literally dive into the internet if even within a few feet of a decent-speed CPU chip that's on-line.

* ''Film/{{Cyberjack}}'': The bad guy Nassim wants to steal a super-virus from a computer lab so he can merge with it and TakeOverTheWorld. This works at first as he develops telepathic powers, but when Nick shoots him in the head he goes OneWingedAngel and infects the computer systems as a sentient virus. [[spoiler:The heroes solve this by basically deleting him.]]

** In the penultimate episode of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex'''s first season, [[spoiler:Motoko uploads herself to the Internet as a way of faking her own death (she did it just before her body was [[BoomHeadshot sniped in the head]]), then later re-downloads herself to a replacement body]].

Technically any full body cyborg is this while they're using the internet (since they basically a BrainInAJar with a mechanical body). In the second season, [[spoiler: [[AntiVillain Kuze]]]] might have become one after being murdered by corrupt government agents.

* The Dixie Flatline in ''{{Neuromancer}}'' was a legendary hacker in life, but after getting killed and recreated as a [[VirtualGhost "construct"]] he really acts more as a tool for Case (comes with running on ROM instead of RAM). Wintermute and Neuromancer are AIs with known physical locations, but that doesn't stop them from reaching out as far as earth orbit or merging together while on opposite sides of the planet.
