* The title character of Larry Niven's The Patchwork Girl qualifies as the second type. The widespread use of organ banks, OrganTheft, and capital punishment by disassembly for organs in the Literature/KnownSpace setting results in many people technically fitting this trope to some extent. [[spoiler: She becomes a Patchwork Girl after being partly disassembled for spare parts due to an emergency after being found guilty of a capital crime, then being reassembled from other spare parts when she's cleared of the crime.]]

The widespread use of organ banks (and capital punishment by disassembly for them) in the Known Space setting results in many people technically fitting this trope to some extent. [[spoiler: She gets that way by being reassembled from the organ banks after first being partly disassembled for those same banks after being framed for a murder. The protagonist clears her, but is too late to prevent her disassembly due to an emergency need for organs.]]

** Android 21, the new character of tie-in game ''VideoGame/DragonBallFighterZ'', is revealed to be a similar genetically engineered lifeform, being a human woman augmented with Cell's collective DNA, plus further augmented with DNA taken from countless Warriors and Researchers including Majin Buu, Cell himself, as well as possibly the other Z Fighters who weren't included in Cell and maybe even the [[OurGodsAreGreater Supreme Kai or Kibito]], [[DemonlordsAndArchdevils Dabura]] based on when one confirmed sample woudld have been obtained or possible even [[DestroyerDetiy Beerus]] and [[OurAngelsAreDifferant Whis]] based on the shape of of Android 21's tail. Not to mentiont that it's possible that her individual samples were taken from a point in time where the donors were stronger than they were when they were taken for Cell.

* Unity of ''Webcomic/SkinHorse'' is sewn together Frankenstein-style from mismatched parts. It's later revealed that Unity is actually a {{Nanomachine}} swarm that inhabits a Frankenstein body because it was designed not to reject her. She can possess other bodies, but only temporarily.


* [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Liquid and Solid Snake]] being twins, are confirmed to be part-American (their main DNA donor being Big Boss)and part-Japanese (mitochondrial DNA from the Japanese woman who donated the eggs). They also inherit some from [[spoiler:EVA]], who was their surrogate mother.

* Serpentor from ''Franchise/GIJoe'' was created from the combined DNA of ten historical figures: UsefulNotes/JuliusCaesar, UsefulNotes/NapoleonBonaparte, UsefulNotes/AttilaTheHun, Philip II of Macedon and his son UsefulNotes/AlexanderTheGreat, UsefulNotes/IvanTheTerrible, UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler, [[UsefulNotes/PunicWars Hannibal]], UsefulNotes/GenghisKhan, and UsefulNotes/GrigoriRasputin. Dr. Mindbender tried to get Creator/SunTzu as well, but was stopped by the Joes. Fortunately, that was apparently enough to throw his military competence out of whack.

Dr. Mindbender tried to get Creator/SunTzu as well, but was stopped by the Joes. Fortunately, that was apparently enough to throw his military competence out of whack. The comic series justified all this by stating the DNA was largely symbolic -- Serpentor's mind and memories were created by Dr Venom's brainwashing machine.


* The [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 TMNT 2k3]] incarnation of the Rat King (a.k.a. "The Slayer") is one of these, using DNA from Bishop, Splinter, among other possible sources.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheTeenageMutantNinjaTurtles'', the turtles themselves turned out to have been created deliberately by using MutagenicGoo to combine regular turtles with the DNA of a great human warrior, [[spoiler:Lou Jitsu (AKA Splinter)]].

* ''WesternAnimation/RubyGloom'' has Frank and Len, non-identical brothers who [[MultipleHeadCase share a body]]. In one episode, they're shown to be split evenly down the middle (Frank on the left, Len on the right).


* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', [[TokenNonHuman Ax]]'s human form is one of these. He took DNA from four of the other Animorphs to create his human form, so he wouldn't look like a copy of anybody. He's AmbiguouslyBrown due to mixing genes from Jake and Rachel (white), Marco (at least half Hispanic) and Cassie (black); he's also described as "[[{{Bishounen}} disturbingly pretty]]," which characters attribute to half of his DNA coming from girls. ([[FridgeLogic This seems to ignore the fact that EVERYBODY has half female DNA]], but whatever.)

* The version of {{Deadpool}} used in ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' fits the trope even more so than his comics counterpart, having Wolverine's [[HealingFactor regeneration]], adamantium skeleton, and [[KatanasAreJustBetter adamantium katanas protruding from each wrist]], in addition to Cyclops's [[EyeBeams eye-beams]], Kestrel's {{teleportation}}, and his own superhuman hand-eye-coordination.

* Cell from ''Manga/{{DragonBallZ''. As the name suggests, he was created from the DNA of the strongest fighters to ever set foot on Earth. Which gives him the best traits of [[HumansAreWarriors humans]], [[HealingFactor Namekians]], [[CameBackStrong Saiyans]], and... [[NoNameGiven whatever Freeza's race is called]].
