* In ''BatenKaitos Origins'', Baelheit's machina is powered by [[spoiler:afterlings, gigantic creatures that are the result of a failed experiment to implant pieces of a dead god into humans]]. It's never made clear if the victims are still aware.

* ''Literature/PercyJacksonAndTheOlympians:'' Implied with the creation of [[WellIntentionedExtremist Luke's]] sword, half Celestial bronze(harms beings with magical capability, cannot harm mortals) and half normal steel(harms humans, cannot harm immortals or mythical creatures) so he can slice up humans, gods, and [[HalfHumanHybrid everyone in-between]]. Such a forging was considered impossible until he did ''something'' to make it possible. Percy is repulsed just by being around it, saying the aura is cold and wrong. [[NothingIsScarier And we never find out exactly how Luke accomplished it.]]

** This is different in [[Anime/FullmetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]], where it's revealed that [[spoiler:alchemy instead draws its power from the souls of humans from a parallel universe-- ours, in fact. Since our world is in the midst of WorldWarI at the time (and not mentioned, but soon to be followed by the even more lethal [[ThePlague 1918 Spanish flu pandemic]]) there are an abundance of souls for the alchemists to draw on]].
* Film continuity ''GalaxyExpress999'' had the upper class using android bodies, powered by tiny energy cells that were made by harvesting humans. (The aristocrats with android bodies in the TV series continuity do slaughter humans, but only because they're ''[[ImmortalityImmorality really, really, bored.]]'')[[note]]Though a sorceress and her (human) minions in one of the TV series episodes do sustain their immortality this way. (Her lone android minion explains that androids aren't able to do this.)[[/note]]

* In ''Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl & Batgirl'', there is no Superman or Batman; the most powerful superheroes are their Distaff Counterparts, Supergirl and Batgirl. Batgirl is trying to take down Lex Luthor, and elicits a reluctant Supergirl's help. They both travel deep underground Metropolis, trying to find the 'clean fuel source' that Lex Luthor discovered for the city years ago. It turns out that [[spoiler:it's her cousin Kal-El...who never got to grow up, but died as an infant in a jar.]] But considering that this is Lex Luthor, are we truly surprised he'd stoop so low?

* In ''{{Neopets}}'', Caption Contest #214 featured [[http://www.neopets.com/games/caption/caption_archive.phtml?place=214 this alarming image]]. Knowing TNT, though, it's probably a joke.
* The manual for the RTS ''{{Earth 2150}}: The Moon Project'' contains several essays to bring the player up to date with the plot. One of the more memorable ones is a request for asylum from a disillusioned soldier formerly of the United Civilized States military forces, describing how the cyborg battalions of the last war disappeared only just prior to the invention of a portable AI module, large enough to store a human brain and a few electronics, that also has a very large warning stating the type of execution awaiting anyone who opens it. In another essay this is alluded to, as well as praising the soldier for anticipating the turn of events and defecting.

* In the Literature/VorkosiganSaga by LoisMcMasterBujold, there is House Bharaputra, a clan/business on the disreputable world of Jackson's Whole. They specialise in cloning and genetic engineering, and most notably provide a rejuvenation program for the very rich: clone them, brainwash the clones so they won't fight it, then transplant the brain of the original into the clone.
