Within the fantasy setting, a homunculus generally acts as a magician's assistant (a.k.a {{Familiar}}), spy, messenger, or even assassin. They are sometimes, but not always, capable of speech. If created correctly, they are loyal to a fault when it comes to their master.

Often they are made BornOfMagic. A non-living vessel is magically imbued with life and consciousness. Depictions vary whether the homunculus requires magic to continue functioning after being made.

homunculi. Sometimes I put doll heads on 'em, but this time I was in a hurry and didn't bother.\\
'''Jacob:''' What's a homunculi?\\
'''Enoch:''' More than one homunculus. Some people think its homunculuses, but I think that sounds daft, don't you?\\
'''Jacob:''' Definitely.

* In ''FanFic/QueenOfAllOni'', [[VillainProtagonist Jade]] creates one in Chapter 17, formed from her chi, to act as another enforcer. It has the appearance of her in her snake form, is stored in her stomach when she's not using it, and is described as basically being an extension of her will. [[spoiler: As such, the fact that it would [[TakingTheBullet take the bullet]] for Tohru is highly surprising to everyone.]]

* In ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'', Roger the Homunculus is one of the main characters, being a humunculus the size of a tall human, having a large degree of intelligence, being incredibly strong and durable, and requiring a power source to be constantly hooked up to a plug in his chest in order to function (although he was once able to power himself using the power he absorbed from Liz after she placed her finger into the plug, though this would have eventually killed her). The fact that Roger is an unusually large and sentient homunculus is often referred to (and occasionally draws unwanted attention), and is put down to his creator being a genius alchemist who had a lifetime of experience and experimentation behind him when he created Roger.
** Roger actually fights his "brother", a less sophisticated homonculus, and his army of goblin-sized homonculi in ''Almost Colussus'', and Nazi homunculi appear in ''Conqueror Worm''

* In ''RagnarokOnline'', homunculi are somewhat like pets, except they can fight for their owners, level up, and gain skills. The only humanoid ones (Lif) are [[CuteMonsterGirl cute monster girls]], while the other options are birds (Filir), {{Blob|Monster}}s (Vanilmirth), sheep (Amistr), or [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys monkeys]] (Amistr's other version).
