''Manga/OnePiece'': Vinsmoke Judge and Dr Vegapunk discover the blueprints for the creation of life itself, attributed as the "Lineage Factor" which seems to be DNA. The Lego genetics is implied with the Vinsmoke children who were modified in utero to give them enhanced abilities including SuperStrength and [[MadeOfIron an exoskeleton]].

* All over the place in ''UltimateMarvel''. Most ridiculously, TheWasp once injected herself with a genetic SuperSerum and within ''seconds'' gained the ability to grow 60 feet tall.
** UltimateMarvel at least tries to ''explain'' its scientific flim-flam. The Wasp and her husband put years of effort into the serum. Of course, it started out with sixty feet being the limit because the human skeleton would snap apart after that. This was quickly abandoned for the RuleOfCool.

* This is probably what happens to VideoGame/{{Kirby}}, [[CannibalismSuperpower every time he inhales an enemy and absorbs his powers.]] His body often undergoes a complete and instant physical change, ranging from change of body color to obtaining [[NiceHat oddly shaped hats]]. But we're [[RuleOfCool completely okay with it]], since we don't know anything about the biology of Kirby's species anyway.

** The Exalt troops have also been genetically modified but all have been disfigured to look like snake men for their efforts, with only the elite troops showing any serious changes. It is speculated that this is because they lack proper access to Meld and are too heavy handed with the efforts, whereas your soldiers all look perfectly normal.

It is speculated that this is because skin glow orange. Most of their modifications are unavailable to your soldiers, since they lack proper access to Meld are apparently too dangerous and are too heavy handed with the efforts, whereas your soldiers all look perfectly normal.unstable.

With LEGO Genetics, you can fiddle with DNA wherever you like, intentionally or accidentally, and all the cells will change overnight (if that). Just wake up and presto! Wings! Fur! Gills! Hulking muscles! Giant brain! Stem cells! You don't even have to eat the equivalent of your entire body mass to [[ShapeshifterBaggage create all those new body parts]]; the old cells just rearrange themselves like Franchise/{{LEGO}} bricks. That part is usually HandWaved if not {{lampshade|Hanging}}d.

* The Season 25 episode ''The Man Who Grew Too Much'' of ''TheSimpsons'' had Sideshow Bob playing around with this trope. At first he's just shown making [=GMOs=] (using a blender to mix a potato and tomato into a liquid that can move under its own power). But then he reveals he's been giving himself genetic modifications including: an ant's strength, grasshopper-thighs, sonar of a killer whale, and "oh right, I gave myself gills".

* ''VideoGame/AVeryLongRopeToTheTopOfTheSky'': [[AvertedTrope Averted]], since Ivy and Mint aren't obviously "half-and-half" except inasmuch as would be entirely realistic; phenotypically, both [[UnSorcerer lack]] [[WingedHumanoid wings]], but Ivy has [[BlueEyes blue eyes]], which is a Lydian trait.

* In ''Film/Gremlins2TheNewBatch'', the gremlins find a genetics lab in the corporate office building and drink the genetic material, including, female DNA, spider DNA, bat DNA, and, uh, [[TheyJustDidntCare lightning DNA]] and gain the associated traits. Then again, what with the already questionable biology of the Gremlins, viewers could care less at this point.
