* [[spoiler: Gaardus]] from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' was rebuilt by a bunch of rogue engineers ForScience!. Although he was already a cyborg, and didn't directly suffer from CyberneticsEatYourSoul, he was upset enough to [[IHateYouVampireDad murder those responsible for his transformation]] and become an outcast.

** However, as the first amputee to ever compete in the Olympic Games, he came in last place in the 400m semi-final (16th out of 51 overall), and has only won one fairly minor race against able-bodied athletes. Quite an achievement for someone with no legs, but it suggests we're not quite at the point of making cyborgs better than humans just yet.

* An interesting example is from Terry Pratchett's ''Discworld/FeetOfClay'', where [[spoiler:the {{Golem}} Dorfl is destroyed in the final battle against the golem Mesugah.]] Afterwards, Captain Carrot actually says, in a [[ShoutOut direct reference]] to ''Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan'', the line: "We can rebuild him. We have the pottery." And they do. Subverted, the character wasn't alive to begin with, or at least had no biological components. And he only got one improvement, though it was very significant: the power of speech.
