* Part of Torvald's backstory in ''VideoGame/{{Evolve}}''. Left torn basically into pieces in a wrecked spaceship floating through space with all other crew dead, he gave the ship's robots one final command: "Repair me." Now he's a head, one arm, and a chunk of a torso grafted onto a robotic body that includes features like a jetpack, mortar cannons, a target designation laser, and a personal forcefield, all powered by a fusion core that burns what he eats as fuel to keep him alive.

** In the sixth game, Moander's backstory states that he was poisoned with manticore venom, but managed to acquire a vial of namtaru spider venom [[note]]Namtaru spiders are worshipped by necromancers, and their venom is used in the rituals to create liches and vampires[[/note]], and drank it thinking it would give him eternal life. It did... but the combination of the two venoms ravaged his body and seared most of his flesh, giving him the appearance of a living skeleton.

* In an early WebOriginal/ShadowrunStorytime session, Geppetto gets a chestful of automatic gunfire. The closest the team has to an emergency trauma surgeon contact is a ghoul organlegger named John. If he does the work, Geppetto ''will'' contract HMHVV. Geppetto acknowledges the risk and accepts it. Dr. John has him infected with a different strain first so he turns into a banshee instead of a ghoul, something that can still pass for metahuman.

* In ''Videogame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'', you can give some of your blood to Heather, a young girl dying from a traffic accident, in order to save her life. While this is physically beneficial (she survives and recovers quickly, as well as becomes stronger and healthier), it also makes her develop a psychological bond with you, essentially acting like she's drugged / in love with you and can't be without you (and your blood). She also does a few questionable things to appease you, ranging from giving you her money to luring home a guy and locking him up in the bathroom as a "meal" for you. [[spoiler:If she stays with you pass a certain plot point, she'll get murdered by the Sabbat for the explicit purpose of punishing you. It can be avoided by ordering her to leave you, never come back, and try to forget everything. Either option is, according to many players, completely heartrending.]]

*** Notably, only the arm and chest replacements were necessary for him to survive. The rest was his employer using his contract to gain power of attorney ("I never asked for this"). [[spoiler: Later in the game you find out that Jensen is the only individual whose body accept augmentations without the need of drugs to stave off rejection, so his employer was also having an experimental field day with Jensen as well.]]

* ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has the Dalish Elf Origin. Basically, your character becomes tainted and has to undergo the Grey Warden Joining in order to have a chance of survival.
* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', if you take your sibling with you for the Deep Roads Expedition, [[spoiler: they will contract the taint, and the only way to save their life is to have them undergo the Grey Warden Joining. Hope you brought Anders with you as well, as he's the only guy who can lead you to the Wardens]].

# [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampires]], or [[NotUsingTheZWord something similar]], will [[SuperEmpowering transform]] a [[ILoveYouVampireSon friend or loved one into same]]. This rarely ends well. If it isn't to cries of "IHateYouVampireDad", the sire will discover that junior [[AlwaysChaoticEvil takes after]] [[MeaningfulName Grandpa Bloodlove]] instead of [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire himself]].
# A literal magical transformation, demonic transformation, or some other spell that will give the recipient a new bill of health... if not a [[{{Animorphism}} new]] [[{{Transflormation}} species]] too.
# [[LegoGenetics Genetic modification]]. Whether via SuperSerum, GeneticEngineeringIsTheNewNuke, or more creative methods; they are transformed into a {{mutant|s}}, HalfHumanHybrid, or even a [[MixAndMatchCritters Mix-and-Match Critter]]. Their mental stability will directly correlate to how outwardly human they stay.
# WeCanRebuildHim! [[ArtificialLimbs Cyborgs]] and the like will [[WeCanRebuildHim upgrade]] all the damaged tissue with cybernetics or [[ManInTheMachine encasing the person in a robot body]]. Not pleasant, as CyberneticsEatYourSoul, and XRayVision [[SenseLossSadness doesn't quite compensate inability to smell]], and there's some LossOfIdentity, but who gives a damn!
# Another variant involves [[BrainUploading digitizing the mind]] ([[OurSoulsAreDifferent soul]] [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul optional]]) into [[CursedWithAwesome a computer]] or [[ArtificialHuman synthetic body]].
# A relatively mundane, real-life medical procedure, like an organ transplant or [[SuperhumanTransfusion blood transfusion]], for whom the only matching donor is a [[{{Mutants}} biologically abnormal]] relative. [[SideEffectsInclude It carries side effects]] ranging from the purely cosmetic to the {{harmful|Healing}}.
