* In StormConstantine's ''Literature/BuryingTheShadow'', the eloim naturally have sex through fusion dance. Occasionally the fusion will be permanent, resulting in a creature called a Harkasite. The practice is largely taboo by the beginning of the book in favor of more human sexual behaviors.

* In ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'', any three Toa of different [[ElementalPowers elements]] can merge and form a Toa Kaita. The only exception is a Toa of Light and an evil Toa of Shadow (technically not a Toa anymore, as Toa means "hero"), since the two elements cancel each other out. The Kaita fusion merges the three minds into one, creating a new being wielding their powers along with a boost in strength. Other creatures have also shown the ability to form a Kaita, most notably the [[CombiningMecha mechanical Bohrok]], Bohrok Va, Bohrok-Kal and [[EliteMooks Rahkshi]]. So far, only the Rahkshi have gained new powers from merging. If a Kaita's mind loses concentration, it will split into the individual beings again. In addition to Kaita there are also a Matoran Nui and Turaga Nui, which combines six beings instead of three. However, these tend to last shorter, as the concentration required to maintain it is immense. Legend has it that a Toa Nui could be formed, rivaling even the power of the [[PhysicalGod Great Spirit]] [[HumongousMecha Mata Nui]]. However, WordOfGod says that it is not possible.

* Franchise/{{LEGO}}'s other series {{Bionicle}} features fusion heavily in the first few arcs of it's story, mainly as a gimmick for the collectable sets which were each provided 1/3rd of the instructions to make one of the two composite "Kaitas". These are largely Composite Fusions, as each fusion had it's own personality that is usually different from it's component parts. After the Mata Nui arc, most combined versions of toys instead depicted background creatures or other characters (such as the Sidorak and Keetongu sets combining to form Sentrakk, who is a completely different and unrelated entity that just happens to have features resembling the characters Sidorak and Keetongu). The last notable fusion set released was "Ultimate Dume", which is actually another form Makuta Teridax took after he forcibly absorbed his two henchmen at the climax of the story (and the only instance of a Power-booster fusion).

* In ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', [[spoiler:the lead male and female, Serph and Sera, fuse into one ultimate being named Seraph; while the result is mostly controlled by Sera due to Serph being a HeroicMime, it is stated their minds would eventually merge the same way]]. This is explicitly a reference to the Hindu religion, where the perfect being is said to be a fusion of both the female and male aspect. An example in Hinduism is Ardha, the fusion of the Shiva and his wife Parvati. This may not apply to all sects of Hinduism though; being OlderThanDirt, Hinduism has so many different sects and interpretations that your head will explode trying to figure out the contradictions.

** The 3DS game ''Dragon Ball Fusions'' takes this a step further, with Capsule Corporation inventing a new method of fusion through a device called the Metamo-Ring. Appropriately enough, this fusion is actually a combination of the two standard methods: it mostly functions like Potara fusion, but it requires the Fusion Dance and is temporary. It also [[SerialEscalation goes even further]], allowing '''five''' people to fuse into a single, incredibly powerful individual.

*** Taken further in ''Battle Network 6'', where Megaman can use 'Beast Out' to (Composite) fuse with the Cyber Beast he has [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan sealed inside of him]], or take the characteristics of an allied Navi (another composite), or reap the benefits of being "In Sync" with Lan (see above). And yes, you can have ''[[UpToEleven all three effects at once]]'', making Megaman absurdly powerful with the right combination of chips and programs.

And yes, you can have ''[[UpToEleven all three effects two of these at once]]'', once]]''; sadly you can't be in "FullSync" and in a "Cross"(The Navi Fusion) at the same time, making Megaman absurdly powerful with the right combination of chips and programs.
