* The Mythical ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' Genesect was once part of an species of insectoid apex predators that lived during the Paleozoic era, but in the process of [[FossilRevival resurrecting it]] Team Plasma turned it into a cyborg and gave it a BackpackCannon in an attempt to create the UltimateLifeForm.

The main version of Rufioh used his Dreamself to escape this fate, but at least one alternate timeline version of him is still stuck that way.
