* The Wiki/SCPFoundation's [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-085 Cassy]] - the unexpected outcome of an experimental interaction between several artefacts of power, she is something of a deconstruction in that her creators never explicitly wanted an sapient sketch and that her 2-D nature depresses her.

* Theater/MyFairLady and {{Pygmalion}} of course.
** Including the X-rated ''Claiming of Misty Beethoven'' and the porno musical remake.
** Ironically, Shaw intended ''{{Pygmalion}}'' to be [[PygmalionSnapBack the opposite of this trope]]. In the original ending, Eliza walks out on Higgins and becomes an independent woman, subverting the audience's expectations of a fairy tale romance. However, the actors refused to play it that way, which angered Shaw, and [[ReCut he ended up writing an epilogue that married her off to Freddy]] just so that she didn't end up forever under the thumb of the middle-aged man who "made" her. [[DeathOfTheAuthor It didn't stick.]]

* ''Film/VictorFrankenstein'' features a figurative and non-romantic variation. After Victor rescues Igor from the circus, he essentially "transforms" the latter into a younger version of himself. Victor fixes the hunchback's deformity so that Igor is no longer a cripple, Victor gives Igor fashionable clothing which is very similar (if a little less ostentatious) to his own, and encourages Igor's scientific talent by having him work as his lab assistant. Victor gradually grows to care for Igor, and Victor ends up needing Igor more than Igor needs him.

* The original legend is referenced but not really followed by the origin of ''WonderWoman'', who [[TrulySingleParent was sculpted from clay and had life breathed into her by her mother]].
* ''MetalMen'' has gone over this at least twice, both between the [[TheSmurfettePrinciple sole female]] of the initial group and the scientist who [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots built them all]], and between [[TheSmartGuy Tin]] and his own creation, Nameless.
