* In Book 2 of ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', it's shown that [[spoiler:'''the Avatar him/herself''']] is a form of mutate. When a spirit [[DemonicPossession possesses a person]], the possessed's morphology and anatomy [[BodyHorror radically changes in accordance to the spirit]]; in [[spoiler:Wan's]] case, these alterations were internal and perhaps more metaphysical in nature, since he fused with Raava, the light spirit. After their permanent bonding in the Harmonic Convergence, they became united as one, and as such [[spoiler:the Avatar]] has ever since been a human altered by Raava's essence.

** In a downplayed example, the Tyranids use this in the first stage of their invasion process, or "[[{{Terraforming}} Tyranoforming]]." They seed a target world with spores that cause the local flora to mutate and grow out of control, [[PlanetEater to make it easier to consume the planet's biomass.]]

* In ''Blog/TheDespairKids'', [[OriginalCharacter Kyoji]] [[TheMedic Nakamura]] performed gene therapy ''[[ProfessorGuineaPig on himself]]'' in order to help combat the despairs. This gave him [[SpareBodyParts multiple redundant organs]], [[SuperSenses enhanced vision]], [[MadeOfIron greater durability]], a BladeBelowTheShoulder, WallCrawl, and a few others he's kept secret.

May overlap with EvolutionaryLevels if the mutants are "[[TranshumanTreachery superior]]" to mankind. A type of SuperHeroOrigin. Very frequent targets for FantasticRacism.

[=Mutants=] are, by general definition, organisms that have undergone a permanent change to their genetic structure relative to the norm for their species. Sometimes this results in a new race or breed, or even, as mutations accumulate over time, a new species (speciation), and sometimes it's a one-off that produces effects that don't breed true, or are (most commonly) so negative that they prevent the individual mutant from successfully surviving and breeding. Technically, any deviation in a person's genetic code from a "simple" combination of his parents' alleles would be a mutation. On average, human beings have 150 to 175 mutations each, the vast majority of which are undetectable. So technically, we're all in some sense mutants.

* ''Literature/Mindscape'': The Vermittlers, the only people who can penetrate the barrier, are not trsuted because they are genetically engineered. In the novel, the Vermittlers have a parallel in the Sioux Indian Ghost Dancers; both groups are treated as outcasts and relate to the Barrier by singing to it.
