* ''EveOnline''. All the capsuleers are transhuman. Just watch the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jfFKSIqkvM intro movie]].
** There are also the Jove. The Jove used to be human, but have biologically modified their bodies to such an extent that they can't really be considered human anymore.
* Alice Margatroid from VideoGame/{{Touhou}} used to be human, but transformed into a magician {{Youkai}}.

** In Creator/OrsonScottCard's version of [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate Tony's]] origin, he was born with a HealingFactor because of experiments by his parents. This seems to be getting treated as CanonDiscontinuity, however.

* The [=SPARTAN=]s in ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'', although in the games it's portrayed more as soldiers wearing PoweredArmor. The EU goes a great deal further into explaining that they biologically and cybernetically enhanced the bejeezus out of them before putting them into their really fancy armored suits. As such, the in-game physical strength and stamina of the [=SPARTAN=]s comes from a combination of their biological enhancements and their powersuits.

** The mysterious TykeBomb project being run at the Sunlit Garden, which produces young Investigators of exceptional ability bordering on superhuman. [[TheAce Arima]] is hinted to be the product of these experiments, while [[spoiler: [[FemmeFatale Rize]] and [[TheMole Furuta]]]] are both referred to as having been [[DesignerBabies bred]] by the project.

* As noted above, any religion that offers an afterlife, including Christianity, are the obvious {{ur example}}s of Transhumanism. The MoralGuardians may want to deny it, but their central dogma is that the humans that follow them would eventually abandon their weak "sinful" bodies and AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence free from sin or death. A lot of Pauline, Gnostic and theological literature encourages despising the flesh in favor of the Transhuman ideal in Heaven. One could even say that ''the MoralGuardians themselves are encouraging and justifying Transhumanism'' with their constant propaganda about how [[SexIsEvil the flesh is sinful]]. Th modern transhumanist movement is simply a secular derivation of this.

* People who have undergone gene therapy or use electronic prostheses, cochlear implants, and the like are the start of what the Transhumanism movement hopes to accomplish. These bits of tech are examples of human enhancement technology that is traditionally used for people with disabilities to bring them to roughly the same as a perfectly healthy human, and the same technologies could conceivably be used to elevate anybody to have greater-than-human attributes.
