Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/{{Domina}}'':
** The fey use remote-controlled bodies they call homunculi to interact with the world. The bodies only last for a few months at the most, but the fey can always make more. They also melt on death so that no one can dissect them for their secrets.
** During the war with Domina, America fields a small number of clones among the regular troops. The fey immediately identify them as homunculi, though the clones are not remote controlled, and are perfect copies of a specific soldier in both body and mind. They are also not expected to last more than a week or two. [[spoiler:Only one survives the war, and the fey give him treatments to bring him up to a normal human lifespan. It later turns out the entire project was a ploy by Silk to gain bodies for her HiveMind; she switched out the sample once she was sure that the equipment was up to spec, and ended up with ten thousand mind linked clones]].
** [[spoiler:The changelings, supposedly kidnapping victims, are in fact just more homunculi built by the fey, though they are built to have normal human lifespans. WordOfGod is that they are all perfect specimens of humanity, so they will actually live longer than average]].

* From TheOtherWiki, ''The Homunculus'', a novel by David Keller: The novel concerns Colonel Horatio Bumble who has retired to his ancestral home with his wife, Helen and their Pekingese, Lady. The Bumbles are childless. Colonel Bumble employs the siblings Pete and Sarah at his home. The Colonel is also attempting to create a baby through parthenogenesis. As a result of his experiments, the Colonel is kidnapped and Sarah rescues him by employing supernatural means.
* Also from TheOtherWiki, ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alraune Alraune]]'', a 1911 German novel in which the eponymous character is a beautiful (but soulless and [[{{Succubus}} sexually perverse]]) woman created by artificial insemination. It was made into several films.

Homunculi are a type of ArtificialHuman connected to alchemy. Their traditional depiction is as tiny people grown in jars, but they tend to differ a lot in presentation. The singular is "homunculus".

* ''ValkyrieProfile'' also features homunculi (or at least similar creatures called chimera), mostly created by the twinked-out multiclass Alchemist/Necromancer/Runemaster/Sorcerer, Lezard Valeth. The first one seen is basically just a big, stupid, frankensteinian monster, but his best creations are basically enhanced human bodies worthy of a goddess. Which makes sense, seeing as he'd planned to use them to incarnate the Valkyrie with.

* In ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'', George several times [[VoluntaryShapeshifting becomes a homunculus]] seemingly straight out of the [[DungeonsAndDragons AD&D Monster Manual]]. He weirds the others out when he does this form because [[UncannyValley he looks like a lizard-skinned, half-finished winged small copy of himself]]. He can't talk in this form (because the thing can only communicate via telepathy, and only with its creator), but he does have a bite that puts people to sleep, and good darkvision.
