* Ma3a from ''[[VideoGame/TronTwoPointOh Tron 2.0]]'' straddles the line between this and VirtualGhost. While she has a distinct (and utterly cryptic) thought process and purpose, it's all but stated that her appearance, voice (yes, it ''is'' Cindy Morgan under all that distortion), and some of her personality was constructed from the deceased Dr. Bradley.

* In Creator/SergeyLukyanenko's ''Literature/LabyrinthOfReflections'', the protagonist uses Windows Home as his computer OS. He keeps the original avatar of the OS, an attractive woman. While in {{Cyberspace}}, he is running away from a mob and runs into a virtual brothel. He then browses through the catalog and is stunned to find a virtual prostitute that looks exactly the same as his avatar. After meeting her, he starts developing feelings for her, which she cautions him against, as she can be a fat guy for all he knows. At the end of the novel, they agree to meet in the real world, and it turns out that this is what she really looks like.

** In the two-part story "Silence in the Library" and "Forest of the Dead", the computer information terminals in the Library have human faces. The Doctor explains that they're memorials to the faces' original owners, "like donating a park bench". This provides a CliffHanger shocker when a terminal turns to reveal the face of the Doctor's current companion, implying she's been killed.
** In "Let's Kill Hitler", the TARDIS vocal control interface can take the appearance of anyone. The Doctor chooses the form of seven-year-old Amelia Pond, since at that point he felt he hadn't screwed her up yet. And this is after rejecting his own form ("''No, no, give me someone I'' like") and that of his previous companions ("''Guilt! More guilt!''").
** Later still, in "Hide", the interface adopts Clara's form, telling her that it chose the form of somebody whose advice she would respect.
** The Moment in "The Day of the Doctor", an ultimate Time Lord weapon that became so advanced it gained sentience, thus no-one dared use it for fear it would turn on them. When the War Doctor activates it [[GodzillaThreshold to stop the Time War by destroying both Time Lords and Daleks]], it takes the form of one of his companions in an attempt to [[EmpathicWeapon convince the Doctor not to activate it]]. (Being a Time Lord weapon, it's a bit vague on the distinction between past and future, and takes the form of [[CallForward future companion]] Rose Tyler. [[note]]Or rather, it takes the form of [[TheOmniscient Bad Wolf]], which had taken the form of Rose Tyler.[[/note]])

This would seem to be Dr. Zimmerman's M.O., and the EMH Mark II seen in a later episode of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is likely no exception.

* Cortana from ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' was not only physically modeled after her creator, Dr. Halsey, but the basis for her personality was a scan of Halsey's own brain. Notably, human-built artificial intelligence constructs are conventionally allowed to choose their holographic avatar, so presumably Cortana selected Halsey's appearance deliberately.
