* Discussed in "World's Finest":
-->'''Bruce:''' It's ironic, Lois Lane loves both Bruce Wayne and Superman. It's the other guys she's not crazy about.\\
'''Superman:''' Too bad we can't mix-and-match.

* Cell from ''{{Dragonball}} Z''. As the name suggests, he was created from the DNA of the strongest fighters to ever set foot on Earth. Which gives him the best traits of [[HealingFactor Namekians]], [[CameBackStrong Saiyans]], and... [[NoNameGiven whatever Freeza's race is called]].

* ''TenchiMuyo'''s Ryoko was made by [[spoiler:Washu, then a genetic researcher for the Jurai, hoping to create the daughter she could never have (and that could never be taken away from her like her son had been, sadly it did ''[[TearJerker not]]'' work out that way), mixed her own genes with genes from a microbe she'd been studying]].

* Serpentor from ''Franchise/GIJoe'' was created from the combined DNA of ten historical figures: UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar, UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte, UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun, Philip II of Macedon and his son UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, UsefulNotes/IvanTheTerrible, UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, [[UsefulNotes/PunicWars Hannibal]], UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, and UsefulNotes/GrigoriRasputin. Dr. Mindbender tried to get SunTzu as well, but was stopped by the Joes. Fortunately, that was apparently enough to throw his military competence out of whack.

* Invoked from an alien POV in ''PerdidoStreetStation'', when an insect-headed khepri describes humans as "khepri bodies with the heads of shaved apes".
* StanislawLem's ''Przekładaniec'' explores this: in traffic accidents, doctors aim to save as many lives as possible, even if this results in having to mix working part of people (or even animals).

* In ''PrometheanTheCreated'', all Frankensteins are made from pieces of at least two separate corpses. It's in the name - the first one was ''that'' Frankenstein's Monster. Theoretically, any Promethean can be a mix-and-match, but a Frankenstein ''has'' to be.

** Goblin Chirurgeon, whose art depicts one of his patients.
** Phyrexians, who do this...and a bunch of other BodyHorror. Phyrexian Rebirth [[AssimilationPlot turns all creatures in play into this]].
** Innistrad uses this as the distinction between black zombies, which apply the rotting-reanimated-corpse model, and blue zombies, which are the product of blasphemous experimentation rather than blasphemous rituals.

* The version of {{Deadpool}} used in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' fits the trope even more so than his comics counterpart, having Wolverine's [[HealingFactor regeneration]], adamantium skeleton, and [[KatanasAreJustBetter adamantium katanas protruding from each wrist]], in addition to Cyclops's [[EyeBeams eye-beams]], Kestrel's [[TransportersAndTeleporters teleportation]], and his own superhuman hand-eye-coordination.
