** Some of the novels featured a nanotech LivingWeapon from the Dark Age of Technology called the Bloodtide which started as a nanomachine swarm with individual intellects before merging into a single mind. This being 40K, it got possessed by a daemon and went around forcing the blood out of people's bodies.

** Some of the novels featured a [[LivingWeapon weaponized]] nanotech LivingWeapon swarm from the Dark Age of Technology called the Bloodtide which started out as a nanomachine swarm with multiple individual intellects before merging into a single mind. This being 40K, it got possessed by a daemon and went around forcing the blood out of people's bodies.

** Flowstone, the rocklike substance that made up most of the artificial world of Rath in ''MagicTheGathering'', is made of DungeonPunk-style nanomachines that can be controlled by the mind, usually by Rath's ruler, the evincar. It can be shaped into semi-sentient beasts or unleashed as a viscous tidal wave. Flowstone is not self-replicating, though; it was produced in a factory in the now-destroyed stronghold, the evincar's fortress at the center of the plane.

* Given ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'s'' dabbling with ScienceFantasy elements, nanotechnology pops up in many forms. Perhaps the most peculiar is the nanite bloodline -- sorcerers who developed their inherent magic as a result of nanotech influencing their conception and inhabiting their bodies (culminating in you becoming a nanite swarm while retaining your personality and, most of the time, appearance).

** Non-Newtonian liquid suspensions: Basically, funny-shaped particles made by nanoengineering, floating in thick oil. Flexible when subjected to the force of human muscles, but turn ultra-rigid when compressed by something faster. Like a bullet. Body armor that can stop a rifle round and also allows one to do crunches like it wasn't there. It's basically a man-made enhancement of the forces that allow [[http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=720f7702c5ab116120e0&page=1&viewtype=&category= John Tickle to walk on custard]].

* If you think about it, nanomachines are actually much OlderThanTheyThink, since proteins are essentially naturally occurring nanomachines. They are quite small, and they can accomplish functions like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzyme facilitating chemical reactions]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Na-K-ATPase_pump pumping substances across barriers]], and when working together can even [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Actomyosin cause macro-scale movement]] of objects [[note]]Without nanomachines, you wouldn't have been able to open this note. Reward them with a cup of a xanthine alkaloid. Preferably coffee.[[/note]].

* In the Franchise/HarryPotter fic ''[[http://fanfic.potterheadsanonymous.com/viewstory.php?sid=65&ageconsent=ok&warning=4 Draco Malfoy and the Sins of the Father]]'', Draco tried to commit suicide after his mother was raped and killed as a punishment for his father's foul-ups, but was saved and transported to St. Mungo's where he was faced with becoming a quadruple amputee. Rather than have a crippled heir, his father had nanomachines injected into him, making him stronger, smarter and utterly incapable of committing permanent self-harm.
