* Subverted in a 1990s ''{{Spider-Man}}'' comic after Spidey is knocked out in a fight with the Sinister Six and wakes up in a SHIELD hospital with what seems like a metallic arm in place of his normal one. He's horrified at the thought that he's become a cyborg, until the doctor who's treating his injuries comes in and explains that the metal "arm" is in fact just a highly advanced cybernetic cast that's healing the fractures of his flesh and blood arm while also protecting it from further injury. The cast is eventually destroyed in another battle with the Six, but when it falls to pieces Spider-Man's real arm is as good as new.

* Seeing as how a central theme of their games is 'Personal Horror', WhiteWolf has made this moment standard with nearly every ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'' gameline except Hunter and Mage games (where you remain human), and ''TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated'' (where you don't start out human). Granted, even in those games, its still quite possible if the Storyteller spins it right.

* {{Neopets}} played this for laughs in the Petpet Park plot. You come upon an adorable Cybunny with the options of: A) Become inexplicably hostile, B) Request an autograph, C) Ask, "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?", or D) Bribe it with Neocash. Upon executing any of the options, the Cybunny would turn around to reveal itself to be half-robot. If you chose A, it gets a mirror out of nowhere and says, "ERROR: WHAT HAVE I BECOME?"
