** 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.]]

* This is essentially the whole premise of ''Film/Annihilation2018''. A small meteor impacts somewhere on the US East Coast and starts projecting an expanding energy field called the Shimmer that rapidly hybridizes the genes of ''every living being'' underneath the dome with, well, everything else around them. The result is an alien [[SceneryPorn yet stunningly beautiful]] landscape teeming with impossible creatures, from trees that grow in the shape of humans, to alligators with a shark's concentric rows of teeth, to critters that simply defy attempts at easy classification. Of course, violating the laws of Earth's biology on so many levels is bound to have at least as many nasty outcomes, so for every gorgeous hybrid in the Shimmer there's plenty of horrifying monsters and copious amounts of BodyHorror to be found.

* 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 creator 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

** In ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'', it's revealed that Dr. Gero's computers developed another Android, Android 21, using the same process to create Cell, now with the DNA of fighters post-Cell Saga including [[GoldenSuperMode Golden Frieza]], Majin Buu, and Cell himself. With Buu's powers, 21 can ''continue'' absorbing more fighters, becoming one of the greatest threats in the franchise.

* In ''Webcomic/Sonichu'', the only reason Black Sonichu (the resident Shadow the Hedgehog {{Expy}}) looks and acts the way he does is because someone spilled Cherry Cola on a sample of Sonichu's DNA while trying to clone him. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Yes, really.]]

* {{ComicBook/Midnighter}} runs into 96th-century TimePolice with nowhere-near-normal resistance to damage, which they explain as having rhino genes somewhere.



* The Kroot, an allied species of the Tau Empire in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' use this as a means to evolve. By eating the flesh of another organism, a Kroot gains some of the traits its dinner had. For instance, a Kroot that consumes enough flying animals would eventually grow wings. Kroot chieftains, called Shapers, use their knowledge of Kroot genetics to pick out creatures with the most desirable traits for their kindred to eat, in order for their tribe to grow strong and conquer their foes. Their Tau allies see this as utterly barbaric, but value the Kroot's friendship over their habits.
** Technically it's the next generation of Kroot which gets the consumed abilities, in a hint of sanity in the flood of madness in 40k.

** Technically it's the next generation of Kroot which gets the consumed abilities, in a hint of sanity in the flood of madness in 40k. The Kroot use various BeastsOfBattle (kroothounds, krootoxen, Knarlocs) whose ancestors all predominantly ate more of a single species, locking them into that path.
