* In ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' (1989), a 15 year old girl sold her voice, with her voice removed, not voice acting, and had her lower body replaced with prostheses. The protagonist is in her museum when she sings a song of [[HumanityIsInfectious anthropological ambition]], and her father uses an multiple rocket launching, individually portable weapon to destroy her museum, in a multiple rocket launching rage. Basically, he [[NoEndorHolocaust blew a confined, water-filled space to bits with them both inside]]. She tried to romance someone, and had to compete against someone that used [[GhostInTheShell a full prosthetic body]] and ThePowerOfRock to manufacture sex appeal. The protagonist reneged on her agreement, and in the ensuing underwater, massive, ultra-destructive armed struggle, the most competent characters in the entire movie were killed by their own employer in one volley of gunfire. The firefight involved a [[HoistByHisOwnPetard powerful captured weapon]].

[[WMG: Cyborgs are actually starchildren from TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey.]]
Starchild eyes look exactly like cyborg eyes.

We couldn't ascend from bone-weilding apes to spacefaring humans in one step (never minding how the movie portrays this). Likewise, we can't ascend from meat-based lifeforms straight to godlike transdimensional energy beings in one-step. Like their {{Precursors}}, humans first have to ascend to cybernetic, then to completely android, only then can they move on to energy beings. Thus, the starchild that David Bowman was sent back to Earth as was actually a cyborg. At that point the human race began a slow ascent to cybernetic life, and cyborgs aka starchildren are becoming commonplace by the time Ghost in a Shell is set.

[[WMG:The world of Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex is set on earth in the {{Transformers}} universe after the {{Transformers}} had left earth.]]
After the autobots had won the war on earth they left for Cybertron leaving a litter of Decepticon slag behind them. A few human scientists picked the dead transformers up and experimented with their core personality units to find out how to conserve the human brain with such technology.

[[WMG: The GhostInTheShell franchise is the SpiritualSuccessor to three [[CreativityLeash unleashed]] {{Cyberpunk}} thrillers that were tragically [[MisaimedMarketing mis-categorized as children's movies]], thus [[HypeAversion annihilating any adult appeal]]: ''TheBraveLittleToaster'', ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'', and ''AllDogsGoToHeaven''.]]
These three movies were before GhostInTheShell, (1995) and are very similar to it. All four works are somewhere that someone would want to escape from. Possibly except for TheBraveLittleToaster, they are crime ridden, war torn, and poverty stricken places. In all four works, [[CrapsackWorld the world is dangerous and treacherous]], and parts and abilities of characters can be stolen and sold off. TheHero is human in none of these stories. In all except TheBraveLittleToaster, the ending is a vast firefight near, or in, a body of water.
* In TheBraveLittleToaster, (1987) a human abandons a group of [[SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaids sentient appliances]], who then fight against impossible odds in a hostile world to win back their master. Then, in StandaloneComplex: MACHINES DESRANTES, The Major tries to have her loyal tanks vivisected. Some survive, and fight against impossible odds in a hostile world to win back their master.

* Humanity is like a security blanket in GhostInTheShell (GITS), and humanity helps protect against cyberbrain attacks. GITS has lots of existentialist philosophizing and humanity-supporting knickknacks, like The Major's wristwatch, for example. So both GITS and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' have humanity as a virtue, existentialist philosophy, and humanity-knickknacks. Many characters in both works use fire based weapons, and at least two characters in each work use prostheses. Both types of equipment are very effective in both works. At the end of both movies, a main character is resurrected, and two characters in ''The Little Mermaid'' and StandaloneComplex get coupled: Eric and Ariel get married to each other. Motoko gets in the body that she likes much better, and Motoko and Bateau stand around together barely clothed in an apartment. Guess what happens next.

Because leave it to Batou to adopt a dog from some poor berk who just found out his whole life is a lie.

*** I'd like to know where you heard about this "SVR", this "August Coup", and this "CIS". The only CIS I know of from the series is the Central Intelligence Agency that Ghoda works for.
** The "Ameri-Soviet Union" was renamed to the Russo-American Alliance post 1992 in real life just to keep with the events. According to Appleseed, the Cold War came to a peaceful resolution with the formation of the Russo-American Alliance, which as you mentioned, was one of the three countries the United States eventually turned into. In Appleseed, this same peaceful resolution somehow also formed the American Empire, but no detail is given just ''how'' it did. In the SAC universe, the 2nd American Civil War in 2016 resulted in the American Empire splitting off. See the entry on DividedStatesOfAmerica for the full details and the states that got split into what.
** Going back to Russia: The Appleseed supplementary material was written in 1986 (and thus is quite out of date even by it's own standards- Shirow admits this), but the "Soviet Federation" remains an independent country from the European Commonwealth that formed. China has actually expanded significantly after they switched to a democratic government (having a gigant meteor land right on Beijin and leaving a crater literally the size of Texas made them change their ways). India, Mongolia, and the Southern Asian countries are now absorbed into it, as well as North Korea and a small portion of Russia's eastern part. Russia does still exist in the GITS universe, but there's not much information about it in the SAC verse.
