* This is what diverges ''Literature/{{Leviathan}}'' from real history, because, when Darwin developed the Theory of Evolution, he also discovered DNA. Fifty years later, as the world gears up towards WorldWarI, London has fabricated elephants instead of cars, gecko/parrot hybrids are used to send messages and the Entente armies liberally use FabricatedAnimals to fight the Central Powers' [[SteamPunk giant]] [[HumongousMecha Walkers]].

* In the 1980's ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest'' episode "Peril of the Reptilian," not only does Dr. Phorbus create his lizardman by combining human DNA with DNA from ''dinosaur bones'' he also has an entire island full of mix-n-matched dinosaurs such as a tyrannosaurus with pterodactyl wings, and a pterodactyl with a brontosaurus head and neck. (Since Phorbus touts the lizardman as his ultimate creation, these latter creatures seem to [[ForScience serve no purpose]].)

* The logic of Cell's creation in ''Anime/DragonBallZ'': he is a unique life form created from the combination of DNA from the strongest people to have been on Earth, such as Goku, Vegeta, Piccolo. Furthermore, he's born [[GeneticMemory knowing all their techniques]] and possesses all of their strengths. His DNA is formed from at least 4 species (Human, Sayain, Namekian, whatever Freeza and his father are) if not more (the various soldiers Freeza brings), and whatever splicing his cretor performed, allowing him to regrow lost limbs, get stronger from his life threatening injuries and survive the vacuum of space. It is worth noting however that part of his creation involved dozens on tiny cameras filming the various battles the main heroes have, learning their fighting styles and then collecting their genetic material. Cell also says that a lot of information (including prerecorded messages from his creator) was fed to him during his incubation stage, which explains how he knows the various moves and techniques he does

* Sort of justified in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' with Yamato's backstory: Orochimaru wanted to recreate the First Hokage's unique powers over the bijuu, so he spliced Hashirama's DNA into that of sixty infants. This was kept within the same species, so it was not too far into the realm of lunacy, but ultimately Yamato was the only success. The other fifty-nine infants died.

* In the first ''Film/SpiderMan1'', Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically-altered spider and develops super-strength, "SpiderSense," and the ability to climb walls among other {{Superhero}} powers ''overnight''. In the display room where he got bitten by the spider, we see a plasma screen showing the bits of DNA added to the spider to create the "super-spider." Later, there is a CGI sequence in which we see the rungs in the DNA double helix changing to the exact same colours as the spider's.
** Though it might help to not look at the CGI shots as literal, but more a creative way to show the audience what's happening quickly.

* In ''ComicBook/AlbedoErmaFelnaEDF'', and finally explained by WordOfGod, this is the way how the anthropomorphic population was created [[spoiler:by creating genes from scratch and creating a being who looks like a human with animal features along the way]].

* Averted in ''Literature/{{Fearless}}: Gaia undergoes relatively realistic gene therapy (described above) to replace her missing "fear gene" and, just like in RealLife, the effect is temporary. The only bit of ArtisticLicenseBiology is, of course, that there is no such thing as a fear gene. Many genetic and biochemical factors are involved in the experience of fear.

** A Subversion [spoiler: Amanda Waller wanted to ensure there would always be a Batman and had Warren McGinnis' reproductive DNA replaced with Bruce Wayne's. Warren did not turn into a Bruce Wayne lookalike. Also, while events still led Terry to become Batman, he's a very different one from Bruce Wayne as he also has inherited traits from his mother.]
