* ''VideoGame/SeikenDensetsu3'' eventually reveals that this happened in the [[BlackKnight Darkshine Knight]]'s backstory (assuming you picked Duran as your main character, anyways) - namely, [[spoiler: the [[BigBad Dragon Emperor]] used his magic to [[CameBackWrong revive]] the knight Loki ([[NamesTheSame no, not]] [[Myth/NorseMythology that one]]) after the two of them dropped into a bottomless pit during a struggle, and [[NeverFoundTheBody neither was ever found]]]].

* The Platonic Solid, a spark modified mace, is able to do this horrifyingly and devastatingly quickly in ''Webcomic/GirlGenius''. It turns a group of attacking knights into skeletal forms with glowing eyes that [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20170329 serve the Storm King and show no signs of their maintaining their previous identities and loyalties.]]

* In the ComicBook/{{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.)
* In the New 52 Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'s books, Comicbook/{{Brainiac}} came upon a dying Zor-El (Supergirl's father). Brainiac mindwiped Zor-El and rebuilt his body, turning him into the new Cyborg Superman.

* Ratbat in ''Megatron: Origin'', (a prequel to IDW's [[TheTransformersIDW Transformers]] run), is revealed to be a rare villain example. As a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive senator]] he tried to capitalize on Meagtron's rise to power by supplying his then fledgling rebellion with weapons, only to have his minion Soundwave turn on him in favor of Megatron and proceed to 'thank' him for his service by reforging him into one of his cassettes.
** During TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye, The DJD's [[spoiler: Pet Turbofox]] was eventually revealed to be an lobotomized [[TheMole Agent 113]], aka [[spoiler: Dominus Ambus]]

* ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperheroes'': The SecretCharacter known as Shadow Lady is [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]] from an AlternateUniverse where she was forcibly turned into a [[UnwillingRoboticization brainwashed cybernetic minion]] for Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, and in retaliation, Shadaloo kidnapped, experimented and {{cyborg}}ized her for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon top operative]]. Unlike Shadow--a roboticized Charlie Nash, who escaped shortly after being transformed--Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to Shadow Lady's programming and internal systems so the cyborg would [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remain fully obedient and loyal to Bison]], and complete her missions by having her body be remotely controlled, essentially making her a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul Chun-Li's formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it]] [[EmotionlessGirl experienced no emotion apart from being a ruthless but highly effective killing machine]] and assassin for Shadaloo - in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind (being more machine than human), and serves as nothing but a weapon against her former allies and Interpol. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chun-Li would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a brainwashed robotic minion wouldn't go away overnight]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this was augmented to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series, thus making her more faster and stronger than Shadow, but at the cost of becoming a brainwashed minion for Shadaloo. She shoots [[HomingProjectile homing]]/[[MissileLockOn heat-seeking missiles]] from [[BackpackCannon her back]], thrusts forward with [[ThisIsADrill a drill]], encases herself in a [[ShockAndAwe electric barrier]] (that also [[DeflectorShield deflects attacks]] and stuns opponents), miniaturized Vernier thrusters in her feet that enable her to jump much higher (and allow her to kick more rapidly) and fires a large beam ([[ArmCannon Big Bang Laser]]) from [[HandBlast her palms]]. [[spoiler:In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]
