Also the "drug soldier" conjured up by Q in the pilot episode as evidence that humans had remained 'savages' even as their technology improved.

* ''VideoGame/JakIIRenegade'' sets Jak up as one of these, {{Wolverine}}-style; experimented on against his will, he later breaks free and swears revenge on the people who did it to him. The experiments involved injecting him with Dark Eco, which gives him the ability to transform into [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Dark Jak]]. Dark Jak has enhanced strength and claws instead of nails, and (if you buy the upgrades) can: create an shockwave of Dark Eco by punching the ground; produce countless Dark Eco bolts; completely ignore all attacks; and transform into a gigantic form that's even stronger (capable of destroying vehicles with one or two hits). ''VideoGame/JakIII'' drops the last two powers but adds invisibility and the ability to throw Dark Eco blasts.

* In ''TabletopGame/HeroesUnlimited'', this is a power type, and there are a wide variety of organizations dedicating a substantial amount of resources to building their own metahumans.

* In the 1990 ''Film/CaptainAmerica1990'' film with Matt Salinger playing the title role. It's indicated that the red face of the Red Sull was actually a disfigurement caused by the original process, first seen tested on a rat, and which is later perfected for use with Steve who comes out looking normal, if extremely powerful in build.

** In "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E3ATownCalledMercy A Town Called Mercy]]," Kahler-Jex is revealed to have created several on his home planet in order to end a war. One of them, the Gunslinger, is still around, and quite impressive.

*** The team of ARC troopers managed this because they were Super Soldiers themselves (to a much milder degree than Greivious, sure, but there were a lot more of them then there were of him). They held him at bay with impressive amounts of MoreDakka.

** Officio Assassinorum Operatives are expected to be able to ''cross entire starsystems'' on their own. While a Squad of Space Marines can figuratively take over a planet, this is usually acknowledged to be a figurative speech, as the marines would be supported by, at the very least, their own air force. The Assassins themselves must not only know how to forage for food on alien worlds, but survive in them and find a way off of them, which includes up to hijacking entire starships. The only field assassin that (presumably) does not have to do this is the Eversor, who's physical biology is so messed up by the combat stimms that he must be kept in stasis between assignments or his body will collapse (and explode).

*** Once Oficio Assassinorum decided to create an ultimate assassin. [[GoneHorriblyRight They succeeded.]] Legienstrasse was able to absorb the biomass of a target upon touch, completely removing the target whole. She could use this new biomass to mutate at will or to create more Maerorus assassins by laying eggs (with a single clutch being able to kill an entire Imperial Guard company shortly after hatching). So in order to create the ultimate assassin, the Officio Assassinorum created an expy of Alex Mercer from Prototype. Only a billion times worse because it's 40K. Needless to say, Legienstrasse escaped. This posed two problems. First, she was powerful enough to have a decent chance at fighting off the punitive force sent to destroy the escaped prototype. Said punitive force included [[OneManArmy Lysander]], a company worth of Space Marines, IG regiment and several Oficio Assasinorum operatives. And second, no one knows whether punitive force (that was barely able defeat the monster) was able to find all the eggs.
