* ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' give us many different types of super soldiers, courtesy of the {{Emotion Eater}}s of the Evronian Empire. The Evronians being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, ''they had a way to neutralize every single type super soldier if they rebelled'':

** The sequel series [=PK2=] has the Predator, who, for a change, was not created by the Evronians but by a CorruptCorporateExecutive by taking a [=SeaDuck=] (a Navy SEAL {{Expy}}) soldiers and modifying his body until he's 80% mechanical and has enough firepower to take on a tank, plus enough conditioning to make him loyal and convince him his partner on his last mission betrayed him. As the guy was ''not'' DangerouslyGenreSavvy as the Evronians, there's no counter in case the Predator rebels... something that happens as soon as Paperinik shows him a record of the executive saying that he and TheDragon had set him up.

* The ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'' has the Hooviets' Project Hybrid, a project devoted to creating powerful pony/deer hybrids soldiers. [[BigBad General-Admiral Makarov]] is the most successful of them and the only one still alive in modern day. He has immensely powerful magic and enough physical power to [[CurbstompBattle curbstomp]] Shining Armor. [[spoiler:Subverted in that the experiment was ''supposed'' to be a complete failure, as even if it succeeded it'd have just resulted in pony/deer hybrids rather than SuperSoldiers. Makarov's true form, a [[RealityWarper reality bending]] monster called the Shadow of Chernobull that altered history. It's also revealed that Makarov was the one responsible for killing the other hybrids so he could be unique.]]

* General Blue in ''DragonBall'' is implied to be one, as he seems to have an insane amount of durability, strength, possibly speed, and has psychic powers.

* MaiOtome may well feature the only school for Super Soldiers that includes embroidery and ballroom dancing as part of the curriculum. Garderobe does not skimp on the traditional survival and combat training though.

* [[VideoGame/TheWitcher Witchers]] also fit the trope: alchemically and ritually augmented, made stronger, quicker, tougher than humans, and somewhat alienated from humanity because of it. They're meant for hunting monsters instead of fighting humans, but [[KnightInSourArmor Geralt]] [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters oftentimes doesn't really see much difference between the two]].
** They're explicitly defined as genetically engineered (via alchemy) in a couple of places.

** On that note, knights could be considered as being this for much of the medieval period, being not only much better equipped and trained than commoners, but also better fed as well.
