** 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 rerecorded 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 ''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.

* If it's a ''Film/SyFyChannelOriginalMovie'', animal genes can often be injected into people willy nilly to create part-human hybrids like Mansquito, Sharkman, or Snakeman. This is also the usual explanation for the MixAndMatchCritters.

** In ''Film/JurassicWorld'' the new park has learned not to use frog DNA this time, but the ''Indominus Rex'' is a MixAndMatchCritter made "mostly" from ''T. Rex'' genes but also a classified mix of half a dozen other species of dinosaur and modern day animals. Horns and spikes from various dinos, raptor arms [[spoiler: and communication]], cuttlefish genes supposedly for accelerated growth but also give her ChameleonCamouflage...

* The substance Professor T.X. injects into the M9 Girls modifies their genetic structure overnight, so that they are able to absorb cosmic energy into their bodies, in the eponymous ''Webcomic/M9Girls''.

* 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]].

* [[SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-040 040]] has this ability. The creatures she creates are designated SCP-040-1 and essentially act as her [[PetMonstrosity pets]].

* ''Franchise/BioShock'' has "plasmids", genetic upgrades that instantly give you fantastic abilities like telekinesis or the ability to shoot fire, lightning, or ice from your hands. {{Handwave}}d by advanced scientific research into creating stem cells, but even that doesn't begin to explain it. In RealLife a plasmid is a ring of DNA which can indeed be used to perform a very limited version of LEGO Genetics, but only to transfer a small number of genes into cells (and only in bacteria). The game also allows the PC to take an active plasmid out of his genome, which is a lot less plausible. ** The explanation for all these abilities (and the driving force behind most of the plot points) is Rapture's form of {{Unobtainium}}, ADAM. Its exact functions are unclear, but it makes the Little Sisters (who produce ADAM via a sea slug implanted in their guts...yeah) virtually invincible, as any wound they sustain is healed almost instantly by [[HealingFactor accelerated cell division.]] It is also what allows gene splicing by injection, and is apparently very addictive.

* Has happened both ways when Creator/MarvelComics mutants have lost their powers. Sometimes they transform to human; sometimes they keep physical changes such as a tail or wings. But then, most lost their powers when a powerful [[RealityWarper reality-warping]] ScarletWitch said "No more mutants..." and the results varied even then: some become completely human, some retain their altered appearance but have no powers, and a few who had physical mutations that disagree with the laws of physics lost [[RequiredSecondaryPowers whatever made it work before]]. (A long-necked woman's neck snapped and killed her, Chamber's "energy furnace" disappeared, leaving him without multiple internal organs, a GiantFlyer fell from the sky.)

* Used in ''Manga/KnightsOfSidonia''. To deal with food shortages, humans have been given the ability to photosynthesize, even without any chlorophyll. To deal with decimated populations, a third sex has been created that starts out intersex, but will change to male or female based on [[SexEqualsLove sexual attraction]].
