** Though replacement wouldn't really be necessary if that one drop of nanobots could operate/last for a longer period of time, quantity would still be an issue but things would be more manageable this way.

More often fiction delights in taking nanotech way, way beyond the plausible. Nanomachines, "nanites" or "nanobots" [[PhlebotinumDuJour are a writer's best friend]]. Writers are not expected to ''show'' the nanomachines doing whatever it is that they do, all they have to do are the results. And the results can be ''anything''. Nanomachines can be depicted as masses of cloud/liquid in external "colonies", VoluntaryShapeshifting {{Blob|Monster}}s, or syringes of ''stuff'' to be injected into humans and have [[SuperSerum fantastic]] [[{{Transhuman}} results]], usually in the form of [[HowToGiveACharacterSuperpowers superpowers]], but sometimes in the form of a BalefulPolymorph or HarmfulHealing.

** 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.

* Some of the characters in ''Webcomic/WeAreTheWyrecats'' are physically augmented with nanobots.

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.
