* The xenomorphs of the ''Franchise/{{Alien'' are walking super-weapons that can forcibly "impregnate" virtually any living creature in order to continue their life-cycle. In [[Film/{{Alien}} the first movie]], Ash outright calls the alien a "perfect organism". ''Film/AlienCovenant'' shows that they were a deliberate attempt at this by an [[spoiler: android]] EvilutionaryBiologist who deemed both humans and the space jockeys / Engineers inferior.

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Goku Black, [[spoiler:being the combination of Goku's never-ending growing body and the brains of the Supreme Kai-In-Training Zamasu]], considers himself to be this because of who he is. He ultimately reaches his endgame when [[spoiler:Goku Black fuses with Future Zamasu, becoming Merged Zamasu. Theoretically, Merged Zamasu would have had Goku's power with Zamasu's CompleteImmortality thanks to the permanently-fusing Potara Earrings. [[DidntThinkThisThrough However, because Goku Black is still mortal]], this compromises Merged Zamasu's immortality, allowing him to be harmed and killed.]]

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemEchoesShadowsOfValentia'' drops TheReveal that [[spoiler:[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening the Fell Dragon, Grima]] was originally created by the [[AlchemyIsMagic alchemist Forneus]] in order to create the "perfect life form" after his experiments in [[BackFromTheDead raising the dead for obedient soldiers]] produced what would become the [[ZombieApocalypse Risen]]. Considering the end-result was a {{Kaiju}} dragon that could only be killed by its own power, [[GoneHorriblyRight one could say he succeeded]]]].

** In ''VideoGame/ChronoCross'', this is then taken UpToEleven when Lavos [[spoiler:merges with Schala and]] gains the ability to use ''alternate universes'' to learn (and destroy) everything. [[spoiler:This turns out to be its undoing when the titular Chrono Cross, which merges all universes into a single point, is used before Schala breaks free.]]

* Played with in ''Franchise/StarCraft''. The Protoss are said to have "Purity of Form" while the Zerg have "Purity of Essence." The Zerg Overmind (and apparently the Xel'naga) believed that combining the two would result in an Ultimate Life Form. However, in ''VideoGame/StarCraftII: Heart of the Swarm'', the Zerg in charge of mutations and evolution, Abathur, dismisses the idea as an impossibility. Abathur states instead that "perfection" is an ever-changing, fluid concept which can be chased but never attained, and depends on the situation and circumstances.

* Ultimates in ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' want to become the perfect transhuman, while exhumans don't bother with the "human" part. Firewall considers ultimates a ''potential'' X-risk that can be managed and directed at worse problems, while exhumans are just straight-up bad news. It helps that ultimates tend to stop short of, for example, ripping bits out of other people's minds, psychosurgically removing their own capacity for empathy, and resleeving into custom-made xenomorph creatures, while there are groups of exhumans who have done all of those.

* ''WesternAnimation/VentureBrothers'': In the PreviouslyOn segment of "Escape to the House of Mummies Pt II", the Cult of Osiris creates "The Perfect Man", though it's clear from the start he's not perfect, as he is completely lacking in mental development.

* From ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'', [[BigBad Kars]] achieves this form through the [[AmplifierArtifact Red Stone of Aja]] being inserted into a stone mask. This grants him the ability to transform himself on a cellular level, giving him a HealingFactor way above that of Vampires or Pillar Men, as well as the ability to transform parts of his body into parts of various animals. He has all the abilities of any creature that has existed, or will ever exist. This includes the abilities of [[PlayingWithFire Esidisi]] and [[BlowYouAway Wammu]], and [[ThePowerOfTheSun Hamon]] as powerful as ''the surface of the sun.'' He becomes so strong that he cannot die [[FromASingleCell unless all of his cells are destroyed]], and the only reason he is defeated at all is [[spoiler:due to a stroke of luck banishing the undying Kars into space, where his powers are unable to allow him to return to Earth. He eventually stops thinking.]]
