** It's a common mistake to conflate nano''machines'' with nano''technology''. While nanomachines are not yet practical, nanotechnology has been in common use for a long time now. For example, [=CDs=] use pits around 100nm deep for storing data, while the transistors in microchips are now as small as 22nm and have been sub-100nm since 2002.

Think [[{{Robeast}} giant robots that can crush cities]] are bad? Teeny-tiny ones can be even worse.

* In the VisualNovel/{{Clannad}} fanfic FanFic/AnEndToAllThings, it's explicitly stated that Okazaki has these in his blood for body maintenance purposes, although they can also be used for making an AbsurdlySharpBlade.

* Sam Everheart is walking around in the WhateleyUniverse because Sam interrupted an attempt to steal a nanotechnology experiment and ended up getting the nanotech, which then did a whole-body alteration. Luckily, Sam survived it.

* ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries'' - According to [[AllThereInTheManual The Official Movie Guide]], Protoforms are made up of densely packed nanomachines. This is the semi-official HandWave for any transformation "cheats" in the films and where, for example, the rubber for Optimus' tires comes from.

* Nanotech is a big part of everyday life in ''OrionsArm'', sometimes to the extent of replacing all natural microbes in an environment. One thing it's not very good for is combat, unless the group using it has the element of surprise.

* The villain in ''Fanfic/ShadowchasersConspiracy'' uses a special {{Magitech}} variant of nanomachines as a primary weapon that acts as both a computer virus and a regular virus, able to spread from one to the other with equal ease. The limits of their powers are not yet revealed, but one doctor claims that an outbreak of them could combine the worst aspects of a MillenniumBug and Literature/TheAndromedaStrain combined. ("To use a rather trite analogy", he adds.) Jalal explains what a GreyGoo scenario is (with rather graphic accuracy) simply to scare an infected victim into taking it seriously when she doubts how dangerous it is.
