[[spoiler: It's Tommy Elliot, AKA Hush, who later uses pieces of other people's faces to surgically reconstruct his own into a copy of Bruce Wayne's.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Ork]] special character [[MadDoctor Mad Dok]] [[AxeCrazy Grotsnik]] is such a loon that he regularly amputates his own limbs and swaps them with those of his [[PlayingWithSyringes (often unwilling)]] patients, "just to keep his hand in."


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{XCOM 2}}'' has a thankfully off-screen instance of this trope. Dr. Richard Tygan serves as the resistance's scientific advisor, and defected from an [[VichyEarth ADVENT]]-run gene therapy clinic due to the alien regime's security measures. This meant that he had to remove a neural implant from the back of his own skull, without the benefit of a mirror. He still managed to get it out without any side effects beyond some nasty scarring.
