* Creator/HPLovecraft's series of short stories "Herbert West - Reanimator", on which the film was loosely based. Which ends with the title doctor being torn to pieces by a small army of his creations [[spoiler:though they take his head with them, and one of them is smart enough to reanimate the dead himself]].

* The beginning of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' sees the trilogy's hero and main character Shepard die in an attack, only to be surgically resurrected by Cerberus on the Illusive Man's orders. The ending of ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' sees Shepard turn their back to the Illusive Man and Cerberus who go back to being villains in 3, [[spoiler: while the ending of ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' ends badly for the Illusive Man by either being [[TalkingTheMonsterToDeath talked to death]] or shot by Shepard]].

Added DiffLines:

* Doctor Hogback of ''Manga/OnePiece'' was a famous surgeon who disappeared from the public eye to study an island full of zombies with the hope of figuring out how to achieve proper resurrection, but it turns out that he is helping to create said zombies. Chopper claims that he would have supported Hogback, no matter how many other people accused him of playing God, if he'd actually been bringing people back from the dead, but has lost all respect for Hogback upon learning that he's simply animating corpses to do his bidding.

* ''Literature/HonorHarrington'': genetical modification is somewhat frowned upon, and certain forms outright forbidden, ever since a bunch of {{Ubermensch}} saw that they were "better" than humans - so they started a war that could have destroyed Earth.

* This is THE plot point in ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist''. Any attempts to bring back the dead are bound to fail and anyone attempting it will lose a body part as a Karmic Punishment.

But note that being forced to perform human transmutation against your will (as it happens to [[spoiler: Colonel Mustang]]) does not save you from the punishment.

* In the backstory of ''Franchise/Barsoom'' novel ''Literature/SyntheticMenOfMars'' Ras Thavas has done this. As is par for the course, it proved to perhaps be ill-advised, which kicks off the actual story.

* In the ''{{Literature/Gentleman Bastard}}s'' books, the Bondsmagi -- many of whom consider themselves as far above humans as humans are above livestock, with [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveSupernaturalPowers moral compasses to match]] -- have horror stories of a fellow mage who tried this. [[spoiler: The magical pollution from the attempt created a plague that ravaged a city, and the mage himself was shunted into a new body without his [[DePower powers]] or his [[LaserGuidedAmnesia memories]], though whether the latter was a case of GoneHorriblyWrong or GoneHorriblyRight is uncertain.]]

to:

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Cyberpunk}}'' universe has it's own problems with over using cybernetics: Cyberpsychosis. When a human adds too many augs, they eventually become more and more unhinged until they're more machine than man and become Cyber Psychos. Special police forces colloquially called "Cyber Psycho Squads", police that are almost Cyber Psychos themselves, detain these criminals to have their minds rebuilt into a more acceptable form. Some even become Cyber Psycho Cops after their prison time.
