* ''AngelSanctuary'': Part of Rosiel's BodyHorror. To summarize, he's basically the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam]] dolled up as the joint clone of [[WhiteHairBlackHeart Sephiroth and Kuja]].

* The Mycon, sapient fungi from the ''StarControl'' series, are genetically engineered biological planeteering tools, and whatever new tools they need, from pseudopods to space craft to other Mycon, they grow just by willing it ("Mycon just ''think'' genetic modification, and it happen!"). Due to the extreme amount of time they've gone without upkeep by their creators, over the generations their original programming "drifted" and has become a religion revolving [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFbmcbyQgxc around the incomprehensible "Juffo-Wup"]]. Heed their babble and you'll get fragments of developers' speech from GeneticMemory.

* ''Manga/DragonBallZ'' has the Androids, which range variously from wholly mechanical (like #16 and 19), {{Cyborg}}s (such as #17, #18 and #20 a.k.a [[BiggerBad Dr. Gero]] himself) and...[[BigBad Cell]] (#21), who is purely organic and, unlike the other ones, has the ability to actually permanently increase his strength through [[TheAssimilator absorbing other humans and his fellow Androids]]. He's also essentially [[MixAndMatchCritter the culmination of the various DNA of every fighter in the series]] [[SuperPowerLottery with their most advantageous traits]] at his disposal.

* [[SCPFoundation SCP]]-[[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-127 127]] looks like an ordinary [=MP5K=] sub-machine gun on the outside, but the inside is made of flesh and bone, and the bullets it fires vaguely resemble human teeth.

** RichardDawkins calls this "the extended phenotype." Basically, the way they build their nests or hives is determined by the genome, hence there is little difference between it and, say, their feelers. Then there's some debate if a beehive or ant nest as a whole can be considered a living being, similar to the cell colony with some inorganic material in between that we call human.

* The title submarine in ''SeaQuestDSV'' is implied to be organic in many ways.

** A lot of Chaos technology merges meat, cybernetics and daemon bits into something kind of hideous. Consider, for example, the [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/warhammer40k/images/9/9b/Helbrute_of_Khorne.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20140409151341 Helbrute]].

** The USS Voyager itself has its circuitry embedded with bio-neural gel packs, an interesting idea (in that brain cells are supposed to be better at computing than the fastest computer) that was dealt with in a single episode in the first season and then pretty much forgotten. One episode involving a nebula extremely deadly to living things and very damaging to technology was an exception . With the crew in stasis chambers, and only Seven of Nine and the Doctor to run the ship for three months, keeping the ship going was a chore thanks in no part to these gel packs.

There was also a memorable occasion when a massive system failure was traced back to the bacterial culture used to make some cheese infecting them.

* Relatively common in ''WebOriginal/OrionsArm'', alongside standard mechanical and cyborg tech. Societies that rely wholly on organic technology and eschew machines altogether do exist, but are very rare.

* In ''Literature/SecondApocalypse'', the Inchoroi are an interstellar race of aliens who have mastered organic engineering, which they call Tekne. Calling themselves "a race of lovers," they've spent the last few eons pursuing depravities of the flesh. When they land on Earwa, a planet of sorcery, they modify themselves to be able to wield sorcery as well.
