Much like Science Vs Magic and Un Equal Rites, the characters in a setting will be violently opposed to two (or more) transhumanist alternatives for human development. On the one hand the cyborgs will propose mechanizing humanity, and on the other end the advocates of Genetic Engineering is the New Nuke will argu for a wetware future. In the middle, humans who don't buy into either will engage in Muggle Power tactics against both.

Rarely, a fourth group that uses both technologies will come forth that perfectly blends both into organic machines.

  • In SIN, the protagonist cyborg fights genetic mutants. Only to discover he could only have become a cyborg in the first place because of anti-rejection gene treatments for his implants.
