** In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', a Special Forces team wanted to build a working robot [[CyberNinja ninja]] they obtained from the Lin Kuei files, so they decided to use the data storage housing the physical and mental files for Sektor, Cyrax, Smoke and [[spoiler:Cyber Sub-Zero, into the cybernetic body that Sub-Zero briefly inhabited before being converted into a revenant. Upon activation, the AI [[AIIsACrapshoot suddenly became aware]] (possibly because four data files were used instead of one, corrupting the robot and making it go unstable), killing all humans in the lab, before vowing to restore the Lin Kuei to its old glory. But since Sub-Zero had sullied the Lin Kuei name, the robot, now calling itself "Triborg", [[StartMyOwn forms the Tekunin]] by saving the brainwave data of his fellow Lin Kuei onto the S-F servers and uses their resources to create new robotic bodies for them; it's also possible that he may have also [[UnwillingRoboticization converted the dead humans in the lab into machines]]. With an army of robot ninjas at his disposal, Triborg vows to forcibly convert many of the kombatants into cyborgs.]]

** ''FanFic/SonicXDarkChaos'' heavily deconstructs this trope - and pushes it to its [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul utterly]] [[NightmareFuel horrific]] [[BodyHorror extremes]]. [[spoiler: ''Especially'' with Tsali - this trope was inflicted to him by the Seedrians, caused him to go [[DespairEventHorizon nearly insane from pain and despair]], and led to him [[KillEmAll committing genocide]] on Cosmo's entire race in revenge before starting the Metarex War]].

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar: Soulstorm'' holds that Indrick Boreale is turned into a Necron if they destroy his stronghold, and that the Sisters of Battle fear this fate befalling them. As mentioned above, this only happens to certain genetically-mutated humans like Tomas Maccabeus, an Explorator Magos in ''Dark Crusade'' who serves as the MouthOfSauron for the Necrons.

Then again, inconsistencies with canon are among the many reasons ''Soulstorm'' was disliked.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}, machine empires with the Driven Assimilator civic are thinly veiled [[Franchise/StarTrek Borg]] {{Expy}}s, so their whole purpose in life is inflicting this on any hapless meatbag empire in the neighbourhood. Pre-''Apocalypse'' Assimilators had to conquer planets the old-fashioned way before they could begin to stuff all those nifty cybernetics into their new drones. ''Apocalypse'', coupled with the Cherryh update, gave them a new range of options including abducting hostile pops through a special "Raiding" OrbitalBombardment stance, or simply assimilating the whole planet in one fell swoop by cyborgizing its population with the Nanobot Diffuser Colossus weapon.

** The [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog American comic]] by Archie Comics takes it more literally. The furry holocaust that served as the backstory of ''WesternAnimation/SonicSatAM'' the was the result of Robotnik using the invention, known as the Roboticizer, to turn Mobians into mindless slaves to do his bidding. Ironically, the original Roboticizer wasn't even created by Robotnik; it was created by Charles Hedgehog, ''Sonic's'' uncle, as a way of [[JustThinkOfThePotential keeping critically ill or injured patients]] alive until a cure could be found. When the whole "mindless automaton" thing couldn't be resolved, Charles [[MyGreatestFailure dumped it as a failed experimentů]] then [[FromBadToWorse Robotnik stole the machine, using it as the basis for his takeover, and decided Charles should become his very first mindless slave]]. Just to pile on the tragedy, Charles's original test subject was ''his brother'' (and ''Sonic's father''), who had been mortally wounded. To this day, Jules is the last remaining "Robian", because de-roboticizing him would [[CantStayNormal restore his old wounds and kill him]].

*** And in ''ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehogMegaManWorldsCollide'', Robotnik teams up with Dr Wily and combines his roboticization technology with Wily's robotics. The result is used on Sonic's captured friends, turning them into the "Roboticized Masters", each with a different Robot Master weapon. [[spoiler:However, a combination of Sonic's Spin Dash and Megaman's Charged Shot and weapon copy system can turn them back to normal. Tails was the only one restored this way, as he modified Megaman's [[ArmCannon Megabuster]] so that the Charge Shot mimics Sonic's Spin Dash and do the work in one step.]]

* ''ComicBook/XMen''[='=]s ComicBook/{{Cable}} has a robotic arm for this reason. He actually has to constantly expend some of his vast psychic powers to keep it in check, otherwise his entire body will be consumed.
