** In the ''WesternAnimation/XMenEvolution'' adaptation, this is changed to the treatment being eventually fatal, leading Cap and Logan (later Wolverine) to destroy what they thought was [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup the only Project: Rebirth capsule]]. Ironically, in this case there ''was'' a backup, which the X-Men then need to go destroy after it is discovered by BigBad Magneto.

* The Original ''Series/KamenRider'' was made into this [[InvertedTrope by Shocker]]. However, the Kamen Rider, through a rescue, became a PhlebotinumRebel.
** Most Showa Era Kamen Riders fall under this [[Series/KamenRiderAmazon save for one]]. The only Kamen Rider to actually be used by Shocker (save for {{Evil Twin}}s) is Film/KamenRiderZX, but it was for a short while.
* ''Series/KamenRiderDouble'' had another villainous example in the form of NEVER, mercenaries enhanced with a serum that [[BackFromTheDead revives them]]. They too became a PhlebotinumRebel, but [[InvertedTrope not in a good way]].

''Series/KamenRider'': Most Showa Era Kamen of the Showa-era Riders fall under this (the sole exception being [[Series/KamenRiderAmazon save Amazon]]) are ordinary people who were turned into super-powerful [[HollywoodCyborg cyborgs]]; some were modified by the evil organization ''du jure'' but [[PhlebotinumRebel rebelled]], others were willingly converted for one]]. various reasons ([[Series/KamenRiderSuperOne Super-1]] was turned into a space exploration cyborg by NASA, [[Series/KamenRiderV3 V3]] had his life saved by the original two Riders so he could avenge his family). The only Kamen Showa Rider to actually be used by fight for an evil organization (ignoring the [[EvilTwin Shocker (save for {{Evil Twin}}s) Riders]] and the like) is Film/KamenRiderZX, [[Film/KamenRiderZX ZX]], but it he was for a short while.

** ''Series/KamenRiderBuild'': [[spoiler:Like the Showa era, the Riders and the [[MonsterOfTheWeek Smash]] are eventually revealed to be products of a secret project to develop military super-weapons. The organization Faust (a secret wing of the Touto government) exposed people to a substance called [[GreenRocks Nebula Gas]]; most become Smash, sick or physically weak people die outright, and only a rare few achieve the "Hazard Level" required to become a Rider. Faust's lieutenants Night Rouge and Blood Stalk were made to be "aggressors" who can help Riders become more powerful through combat, but have limited military usefulness since they're incapable of such growth themselves.]]

** Albert Wesker might qualify, seeing how they injected himself with a virus that enhanced his strength, speed, agility, durability, and healing to superhuman levels, and the virus itself was strongly implied to be intended to be given to certain members of Umbrella to create new life for Spencer to rule as a god over.

* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', of course, has Steve. It also has Natasha (as per mainstream continuity, thanks to the Infinity Formula, at the very peak of human potential - Steve being the next step in human evolution - and biologically immortal), Mar-Vell and [[spoiler: The Winter Soldier]]. The last is by far the most terrifying of them all, even considering the fact that Mar-Vell is a GeniusBruiser and a FlyingBrick.

* Samus Aran in the ''{{Metroid}}'' series. Sam's pretty much got the complete Super Soldier package, being adopted by the [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien fantastically advanced]] yet [[AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence consciously going extinct]] Chozo, who [[LEGOGenetics infused her with Chozo DNA]] to gain fantastic speed, strength, agility and sensory capacity, trained her as the last Defender (read: legendary universe-saving warrior/judge figure) and equipped her with a modular suit of PoweredArmor that's the envy of the galaxy. On top of this, she's largely fueled by a [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge burning desire to get back at the Space Pirates who trashed both of her homeworlds and left her orphaned twice over]]. If there's a better warrior in the series' galaxy, we haven't seen him, her or it yet.

** ThoseWackyNazis did this with [[UsefulNotes/NazisWithGnarlyWeapons their infantrymen and pilots]] in a fairly crude manner: by feeding them [[http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/05/pilots-salt-the-third-reich-kept-its-soldiers-alert-with-meth/276429/ Pervitin-brand amphetamine pills]] so that they could fight longer and harder and [[SociopathicSoldier not think about what they were doing]]. Soldiers often referred to them as "tank chocolate" and "pilot's salt". Given the well-known properties of amphetamines, many German soldiers wound up with crippling addictions and health problems even before the fighting had stopped, causing Nazi health official Leonardo Conti to try (and fail) to limit use of Pervitin in the armed forces. The Allies also briefly experimented with the drug, but stopped quickly once its side effects became apparent.

** B.J himself may as well be considered one, [[OneManArmy given how fucking unstoppable he is]]. [[spoiler:In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', after he gets captured and decapitated by Frau Engel, he gets his head recovered by the Resistance and put on some kind of prototype Ubersoldat body, so he qualifies for real.]]

* The Guardians in ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' were once dead humans and transhuman lifeforms who are resurrected by [[RobotBuddy Ghosts,]] sent by [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien the Traveler]] to raise soldiers to protect and fight for it and those it is protected (in this case, the rest of humankind). Every Guardian is empowered by [[RealityWarper the Light]], granting them [[PracticalMagic phenomenal powers]], [[HealingFactor rapid healing]], and ResurrectiveImmortality, and every Guardian is [[OneManArmy able to mow down hordes of opponents.]] Interestingly, the Guardians' methods of fighting don't focus on conventional warfare, because they don't have the manpower to take and hold ground or fight in open battles against enemy armies and navies; instead they capitalize on their strengths, with the Guardians focusing on precision attacks on enemy logistics and support, infiltration and sabotage of enemy ships and weapons, lightning-fast assaults against high value targets, and other forms of aggressive guerilla warfare that leave much larger and more powerful and conventional enemy armies leaderless and unable to attack.
