* ''OrionsArm'', for all its much vaunted scientific accuracy, still features this trope in the form of splices (animals augmented with human DNA) and rianths (humans who added animal genes to themselves).

* ''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 ''TheWhywhyFamily'' episode about genetics, Micro and Scopo shrink down and go inside Zygo to show Victor how DNA works. Victor physically moves Zygo's genes around like building blocks, causing him to turn into a multitude of other animals.

* This is basically everything Dr. Sevarius does in ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}''. He even made his own Gargoyles by using bat DNA for wings, big cat DNA for sharp claws and teeth, & electric eel DNA to power the wing muscles, which also has the side-effect of allowing them to shoot electricity blasts. All he needs after that is [[spoiler: a live human to serve as a base.]] As if you didn't already see that coming.

* This is [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Dr. Jumba]] [[WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries Jookiba's]] bread-and-butter, having illegally created [[Characters/LiloAndStitchExperiments 629 genetic experiments]] for evil purposes using a variety of alien DNA. A little Hawaiian girl, however, turned these artificial aliens good[[note]]well, at least the first 626 of them[[/note]] thanks to the idea of ''[[TrueCompanions 'ohana]]'', making them one hell of a tight-knit BadassFamily of genetic alien "cousins".



* As revealed in the February 2012 coverstory of National Geographic Magazine, the distinctive traits of domestic dog breeds work like this.

* In ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' magic is genetically inherited through recessive genes, which author handled quite resonably... except for the main character, who has ''only'' recessive genes where there was choice (highly improbable in real life), giving Dora some [[CommonMarySueTraits mary-sueishness]], although narrator lampshades how improbable it is.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Cataclysm}}: Dark Days Ahead'', once your cooking skill is high enough and you find the proper manual, you can just mix bleach, ammonia, and zombie flesh together, drink the resulting concoction, and instantly gain new body parts and powers ([[SuperpowerRussianRoulette or weaknesses]]). To make things odder:
** Once you get even higher skills, you can make specialized mutagens that are guaranteed to mutate you into a specific species. However, most of these mutagens require a nondescript "Chunk of Meat", which can be gotten from almost any animal, meaning you can make Bear Mutagen using wolf flesh, Wolf Mutagen using bear flesh, and so on.
** Genetic damage is a possible penalty for failing to install [[{{Cyborg}} cybernetic augmentations]], which implies that all humans already have DNA from all species inside them.

''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.
