* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has Quinque, the weapons wielded by [[TheHunter Ghoul Investigators]]. They are made by harvesting the predatory organ from a ghoul, altering and reprogramming the organ to generate a set weapon upon command. Swords, knives, spears, and guns are all popular choices for the design.....but some maintain enough of the original kagune's shape to be easily recognizable to loved ones of the "donor".

** GURPS has two takes on biotech depending on the setting/society in a setting -- either it begins to show up (beyond the modern-day applications) around tech level 9[[note]]one level above the current modern day[[/note]], or it is the result of a divergent tech level[[note]]expressed 'x'+'y' where the sum is the equivalent tech level, x is the tech level shared with the standard -- in extreme cases this can be 0 -- and y is however far they've gotten on their alternate path[[/note]] that may well be equivalent to a ''lower'' tech level than the modern day.

** The Dark Eldar have a large swathe of Organic Technology, particularly in the [[MadScientist Haemonculus]] subfaction.

** The Dark Eldar have a large swathe of Organic Technology, particularly in the [[MadScientist Haemonculus]] subfaction. However, they cannot manipulate wraithbone since their PsychicPowers have atrophied.

* The hostile aliens in the ''[[{{VideoGame/XCom}} X-COM}]]'' series of games have always used varying degrees of bio-tech, such as purpose-build foot soldiers - but ''VideoGame/XCOMApocalypse'' took this trope to the natural conclusion, with alien ships and buildings being fully organic. You actually get to see (and blow up) the facility where they grow their ships (among other vital constructs)...

Cars, planes, phones, computers, [[MeatMoss buildings]], [[LivingShip space ships]], and everything else required for a proper SciFi story will be provided in the form of something that is warm, moist, skooshy and drips goo everywhere. Often, this will go so far as to include a convenient thought-based interface. [[{{Biomanipulation}} Manipulation of organic matter]] may be part of the technology as a whole, or even what enabled the tech in the first place. Advanced [[{{Nanomachines}} nanotechnology]] will often be depicted in a similar fashion.

Civilizations who use this technology are also frequently users of SufficientlyAdvancedBambooTechnology. Depending on the aesthetic choices of the depiction, the organic technology may seem [[AmbiguousRobots Ambiguously Robotic]] as well.

* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-xREfdihtY this]] Season 3 sneak peak for ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'', "Pickle" Rick resorts to taking apart vermin to provide him with mobility. He is first seen using several roach bodies which he manipulate by stimulating nerves with his tongue. He later upgrades to rat parts, which are attached to him by an apparatus that also largely consists of the remains of rodents and insects.

* Several races of ''{{Talislanta}}'' use plant-based technologies, including the barge-forts of the Green Aeriads (with live viridia trees for masts) and the d'oko lily plants used as houses by the Green Men.
* This is one of approximately 9000 options for HumongousMecha in one ''{{Mekton}}'' expansion.
