* In ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'', it's stated by WordOfGod that the Hunters are all the descendants of these, who fought in an ancient war with the creators of the monsters. This explains their ability to wield weapons twice as large as themselves and [[MadeOfIron withstand tail whips and bites from gargantuan wyverns and dinosaurs]], previously written off as simple CharlesAtlasSuperpower.

* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'' has the Jägermonsters, "constructs" with a rather {{Frankenstein}}'s Monster meets Doctor Moreau appearance. Dressed up in the shiniest of Napoleonic uniforms (Prussian style) and really {{Nice Hat}}s. Complete with silly German accent and the habit of being [[BoisterousBruiser loud]] except when sneaking. Fangs, the claws, the super-strength, and the fact that they may well be immortal. They are are also "ideal soldiers" mentally. [[BloodKnight Always ready to fight]], honorable (they even have a proper [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20100609 duel code]]) and extremely loyal to their liege and creators, the House of Heterodyne. Also, good sport -- they admire people who manage to beat them and so far we saw them hitting on ladies [[LoveAtFirstPunch only after knocked out by the lady in question]]. Most of them are staunchly loyal to the Heterodynes ([[UndyingLoyalty by choice]], no less) and aren't exactly as monstrous as rumored to be. That doesn't stop normal people from trying to hang them, though.

* ''Webcomic/GenocideMan'' features Genocide Men, who have nanotube ceramics in their bones to make them unbreakable, artificial glands that provide combat stimulants and negate many toxins, and telomere replacement therapy to mitigate the effects of aging. Many of the genetic deviants they were designed to combat were super soldiers as well, the Ugandan deviancy comprised four-year old children with claws, slitted pupils, and ridiculously fast reflexes, they killed everyone else in Jacob Doe's squad, he only survived because he was a G-Man.

* The made-for-television film ''Film/{{Legion 1998}}'' was about a team of death-row convicts who were offered full pardons if they helped take an enemy installation. They realize something is wrong when they find nothing but a pile of rotting bodies waiting for them. Then they start getting picked off one by one. It turns out their entire mission was really a test of the military's prototype supersoldier the titular "Legion" [[spoiler:who is actually one of the convicts who allowed himself to be a guinea pig to avoid execution]]. The supersoldier was created by integrating [[LegoGenetics lizard DNA into his genetic makeup]] and could shapeshift into his original human form, adapt to environments inimical to humans, and boasted enhanced strength and agility.

The downside to this process, is that it left the 701s impaired to physical trauma and wear and tear from overexertion, meaning that it was very possible for the 701s to die from internal bleeding caused by their superhuman performance. Another downside to this process, was that it left the 701s with impaired judgment and morality. Major troubles for the 701s started, when one of their own, went berserk and killed a bunch of police officers in the process. After this incident, the government terminated the project and had most of the 701s killed, with only a handful escaping and surviving out in Hong Kong. The protagonist of the movie, Simon/Michael (In the Chinese dub his name is Tsui) is a 701 attempting to lead a normal life, but is called back into action when his fellow 701s begin taking down gangs all over Hong Kong and begin to cause trouble for the police.

** The immortal EvilutionaryBiologist called [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Apocalypse]] likes to enhance his already super-powered {{mutant|s}} follower/slaves into armored killing machines, while giving them [[SarcasmMode subtle nicknames]] like "the Four Horsemen".

** Because of it's age, the UrExample in Franchise/{{Gundam}} is the Cyber-Newtype. In the mist of the [[EvolutionaryLevels increasing]] [[PsychicPowers powerful]] [[TelepathicSpacemen Newtype]] of Universal Century Gundam, the Cyber-Newtype was created as a means of combating them on an equal footing. Creating one was usually based on prescribing [[PsychoSerum drug cock tails]] that would give one PsychicPowers on-par with some Newtypes with some military training and other [[{{Brainwashed}} therapy]]. They are powerful but highly unpredictable while being [[AxCrazy legendarily unstable]].... Throughout Universal Century, there has been at least one starting with the Titan's [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Four Murasame and Rosamia "Rosammy" Badam]]. Unless...

* Many various bodies of historic and present day military groups of various nations around the world could qualify for the trope due to their intensive selection and training (For a sufficiently low value of '[[BadassNormal super]]', anyway).

* Many various bodies of historic and present day military groups of various nations around the world could qualify for the trope due to their intensive selection and training (For a sufficiently low value of '[[BadassNormal super]]', anyway). Comparing your typical WWII soldier up against a modern US Commando would get the latter called a SuperSoldier by the former with how different their trainings and equipments are.

** The [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] warrior caste, trained from birth to be merciless sadomasochist killing machines. They're fond of chopping off various parts of their bodies and replacing them by more efficient, [[OrganicTechnology genetically engineered symbiotic grafts]].
