* Many systems for tactical space fleet gaming, especially those with ship design rules and the option to do without the canon setting presented in the rules, usually have at least one bio-tech race. ''TabletopGames/SilentDeath'' features the Bugs, which grow to fit into manufactured frames and become cyborgs; while ''TabletopGames/FullThrust have the Phalon, who build their ships from parts and units made of lab-grown tissues, and the Sa'Vasku, whose craft, and indeed anything they use, are usually fully-fledged living organisms in their own right.

** Continuing expansions to the ''Phase World'' setting give us Necrons, who hate non-organic technology and have living weapons and bio-ships they can use to spread that hate across the Three Galaxies.

* The Elite from the ''ComicBook/{{Superman}}'' story ''"What's So Funny About Truth, Justice, And The American Way?'' and [[WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite the animated adaptation]] have a bio-organic starship that even features a nifty and [[TeleportSpam easily-spammable]] [[VillainousTeleportation teleporter.]] It's actually a living bacterial colony from another dimension who the Elite enslaved by removing her higher-brain centers. [[spoiler: When Superman restores her sentience at the end of the story, she's all too happy to help him beat them at their own game.]]

* In an episode of Anime/{{Pokemon}} an Electabuzz is used to power a chainsaw. In another episode Pikachus were used to power a treadmill. Pokéballs also qualify, as they're created based upon Apricorns.

This is becoming [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synthetic_biology an actual thing]]. Interestingly, RealLife synthetic biology ''seems'' to be going the reverse direction of this trope: making biology look more like chemistry and nanotechnology, rather than making technology more like biology. Whether we'll get our meaty [[IWantMyJetpack jetpacks]] remains to be seen.
