anybody. He's AmbiguouslyBrown due to mixing genes from Jake and two girls, creating a result that is regularly Rachel (white), Marco (at least half Hispanic) and Cassie (black); he's also described as "[[{{Bishonen}} "[[{{Bishounen}} disturbingly pretty]]".pretty]]," which characters attribute to half of his DNA coming from girls. ([[FridgeLogic This seems to ignore the fact that EVERYBODY has half female DNA]], but whatever.)

* Giorno Giovanna from ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. While he's not a clone of anyone in particular, the [[GrandTheftMe strange circumstances]] around his conception gave him characteristics of both Jonathan Joestar and Dio Brando. This is reflected in his name: [=JoJo + Dio = GioGio=]. Turns out there's three other men created from these same circumstances, they appear in Part 6.

** Probably most impressive is the DNA responsible for mitochondria, which are a necessary part of all multicellular organisms (and a fair bit of unicellular ones, too), and which is theorized to have its origins in some far prehistoric creature, now long-extinct on its own.

* In [=Vonda McIntyre=]'s sci-fi novella ''Screwtop'', one of the inmates of a prison camp is a mixed-race human "tetraparental", which means his genes have been spliced together from four parents, resulting in black-and-beige marbled skin and patches of black and blond hair of different textures.

* Baron Wulfenbach from Webcomic/GirlGenius is probably one of these. The family originally had three sons, but following a horrific lab accident two of them disappeared. It's commonly believed that the Baron is a construct made of the salvageable parts of all three. Also, Constructs in general.
