* [=JackMoon=] from ''MadanSenkiRyukendo'' is a NobleDemon who is set up as TheRival to Kenji Narukami, the eponymous Ryukendo. He dies in what he sees a honorable death against Kenji...only to be rebuilt into the mindless cyborg Mekanimoon by the EvilGenius Baron Bloody.

** They were this exactly in ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} II'': slain Azerothian Paladins reanimated into Undead {{Squishy Wizard}}s for the then-evil Horde. ''VideoGame/WarcraftIII'''s Liches are those same Death Knights retransformed into frost magic users (though they kept the Death and Decay spell), and the new generation of Death Knights are human nobles reanimated as melee heroes with [[LightningBruiser a much better survival rate]].

* In ''Anime/TekkamanBlade'', every Tekkaman is an example. The Radam captured a bunch of explorers and subjected them to a harrowing procedure that infused them with awesome superpowers and a parasite controlling their thoughts. [[spoiler:Takaya aka D-Boy's father used the last of his strength to free Takaya and interrupted the process. As a result, Takaya had the superpowers of a Tekkaman but lacked the mind controlling parasite.]]

* In ''VideoGame/EvilGenius'', this is how you make Freaks: dipping a body bag into your Bio-Tanks induces a terrifying resurrection, and the result is peak DumbMuscle -- a Freak's ''maximum'' Attention is still too low to avoid your own traps. [[spoiler:This is also how you permanently dispose of Dirk "Totally Not {{Franchise/Rambo}}" Masters. Turns out he's hopped up on tons of illegal steroids, and the chemicals in your Bio-Tanks cause a delightful DangerousPhlebotinumInteraction.]]

* The Taken in ''Literature/BlackCompany'' are powerful wizards, defeated in battle and remade into powerful servants. The transformation seems to involve death and the victim remains human in shape only at best.

Added DiffLines:

* In the New 52, this was, ultimately, how Harley Quinn became a villain; ComicBook/TheJoker brought her to the factory where his own transformation had occurred, and forcibly dunked her into the same vat of chemicals, with similar results. (Probably the biggest reason why Harley is far more insane in this version than previous ones, often just as much as he is.)

* ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' does this interestingly. Marsh, older brother of [[RebelLeader Kelsier]], infiltrated the [[CorruptChurch Steel Ministry]] disguised as an acolyte. He attracted the attention of the [[ImplacableMan Steel Inquisitors]], who, [[GoneHorriblyRight owing to how good Marsh's impersonation was]] [[spoiler: had Marsh forcibly converted into an Inquisitor himself, a stomach-churning procedure Marsh certainly did ''not'' sign up for. However, the Inquisitors were not aware that Marsh was a spy, and he was able to retain his personality despite the mind-altering affects of the transformation and betrayed the Inquisitors at a crucial moment, killing their leader Kar and several other high-ups and leading directly to the overthrow of their boss, the Lord Ruler. Unfortunately, the dark god Ruin- ultimate source of the magic that powered the Inquisitors and whom the Lord Ruler had been holding at bay- now gained greater power to affect the world, so he possessed Marsh and made him into TheDragon. So poor Marsh ended up a minion after all, even if it didn't quite work out the way that those who reforged him wanted it to]].
* Some [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] [[MadScientist Shapers]] tried to do this to [[ActionGirl Tahiri]] in the ''Literature/NewJediOrder'' series (though their primary goal was brainwashing her into believing she was Yuuzhan Vong herself, they also intended to make physical modifications to bring her closer to a Vong physical appearance). Unfortunately for them, Tahiri was rescued and the head Shaper was killed before the process was complete. Unfortunately for Tahiri, there were [[EnemyWithin lingering]] [[SplitPersonality effects]].
