A body made of other bodies.
- The Doctor: You have the eyes of a twenty-year-old.Uncle: Thank you.The Doctor: No, no, I mean it, literally, your eyes are thirty years younger than the rest of you. Your ears don't match, your right arm is two inches longer than your left, and how's your dancing? Cause you've got two left feet! Patchwork people. You've been patched up and repaired so often if doubt there's anything left of what used to be you.

- Auntie and Uncle from Doctor Who episode The Doctor's Wife are played for horror, victims of the House's playthings.
- Frankenstein's monster was originally made from other body parts.
