* An interesting take on it is Stroheim from the second part of ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure''. He first appears to be a villain, proves to be a NobleDemon, performs a HeroicSacrifice in an attempt to destroy Santana, then returns later as a cyborg... just in time to pull a HeelFaceTurn.
** And then gets chopped in half by Cars, only to come back AGAIN even more cyborged up in time for the grand finale. Best Nazi character EVER!
* [[spoiler: Jeremiah Gottwald]] in ''Anime/CodeGeass'' has pulled this one twice now. Technically the second time was just the completed version. He awakened prematurely the first time, and his cybernetic upgrades were not yet finished.

* While not actually involving cybernetics, the necromantic Golgari guild of [[TabletopGame/MagicTheGathering Magic]]'s Ravnica setting is apparently quite casual about reanimating and 'improving' their dead with plant life, as illustrated on cards like [[http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=88986 Vigor Mortis.]]

* [[http://sharknob.deviantart.com/art/STREET-FIGHTER-DESTINY-DROID-LI-432375710 This alternate take on]] [[VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfSuperheroes Shadow Lady]], a [[UnwillingRoboticization cyborgized]] [[ReforgedIntoAMinion and]] [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul brainwashed]] WhatIf PaletteSwap of Chun-Li. Instead of being forcibly kidnapped by Shadaloo, (as she was in the game), Chun-Li dies 15 minutes after giving birth, and it's unknown who the child's father was, as she was dating Ryu and Dan at the same time. Hearing that Chun-Li died, Shadaloo decided to steal her body, as she wasn't properly buried with the purpose of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. Fast forward 30 years later, she CameBackWrong as an ultra high-tech {{Cyborg}} killing machine developed by Shadaloo. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's top assassin. Before her transformation into Shadow Lady, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn, so it's apparent that her cyborgization was done in retaliation for her foiling many of their plans. And unlike Shadow (a cyborgified Charlie Nash), who escaped shortly after being transformed, Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to her programming so she remains fully obedient to Shadaloo at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. Since then, Bison, who had been looking for a potential new test subject for creating a prototype super soldier for Shadaloo after Shadow fled, found this in his arch-nemesis Chun-Li. Shadaloo had vastly improved on the conversion process since then, and it was only fitting that the one constant pain in Bison's side be given this 'honor', and hopefully, turn her into their main pawn against Interpol. But unlike Shadow (a cyborgized Charlie), who only received a few mechanical upgrades, Shadow Lady was designed to be a complete robot and be enslaved to her programming so she won't rebel against Shadaloo and follow their orders at all times. Designed to be the ultimate anti-Interpol weapon, she was sent out by the heinous Shadaloo leader to gather information on her former allies so they too could be turned into mindless cyborgs like Chun-Li and Charlie Nash were. It's unknown how much of Shadow Lady's body is organic and how much is mechanical, but it's speculated that much of her body, apart from her brain is full of servos, wires, circuit boards and motors. It's possible that M. Bison may have used the same technology on her that was used to create Cyber-Akuma. Even her iconic OdangoHair are now RobotAntennae, as it's speculated that she is receiving orders from Shadaloo and that she is being controlled via remote control. And given that she no longer breathes, her face is given a breathing apparatus, making her a female DarthVaderClone, so expect her voice to either sound metallic or machine-like as well if possible, which is tied to the mask. As Shadow Lady, her formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, her body's physiology altered so it experienced no emotion apart from being an soulless and emotionless killing machine and serving as M. Bison's right-hand; and in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. Upon completion, her programming was complemented by extensive exercise to tone her muscles and combat training to ensure that she had all the skills required, including the use of a variety of weapons, though she would rarely need to use them. With her training complete, Shadow Lady's speed, combat skills and stealth capabilities made her the ideal assassin for Shadaloo. In a short period of time, this what-if version of Chun-Li goes from a strong-willed woman to a completely submissive gynoid working for one of the most notorious gaming bosses. What's sad to see that if her child (who may have been grown up by now) decides to fight her, they don't know that [[ArchnemesisMom their mother has been revived as a brainwashed and cyborgized killing machine]]. Also, neither Ryu nor Dan are aware that [[RoboticSpouse their former date]] has been revived as a {{Brainwashed}} RobotGirl. All in all, while Chun-Li is back again, she's now more of an EmptyShell, [[LaserGuidedAmnesia with no record of her old memories]] as they've been [[BlankSlate overridden]] with pre-programmed directives ordering her to be an [[ReforgedIntoAMinion emotionless and ruthless]] [[RoboticPsychopath assassin for Shadaloo]], essentially condemning her to a FateWorseThanDeath via DeathOfPersonality, LossOfIdentity and CyberneticsEatYourSoul. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a minion for Shadaloo wouldn't magically go away]] overnight should she become a good person again. It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. But she's now a roboticized assassin-droid, so she has no control over the actions of what her body does.

** ''Literature/DeathStar'' has a surgeon looking at Darth Vader from a safe distance and thinking that it's pretty obvious that the Dark Lord is largely cybernetic. But it seems that ''this'' book is a little divorced from the rest of the EU, since the surgeon seems to think that cybernetics are rare and most people opt to have the missing tissue cloned and grafted on.
