Nanotechnology in fiction

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This is a list of references and appearances of Nanotechnology in works of fiction.

Movies and TV series

  • Nanoprobes in Star Trek TNG, Voyager, and Enterprise (TV Series)
  • Replicators in Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis (TV Series)
  • Nanoids in Eureka (TV Series)
  • Agent Cody Banks, where Dr. James Corner built nanobots for ERAS
  • the body of SID 6.7 in Virtuosity
  • the Outer Limits: In "The New Breed" episode, a terminally-ill cancer patient injects himself with nanobots which enable him to have superhuman abilities.
  • the X-Files Episode 6x10 "S.R. 819", A.D. Skinner's blood is infected with Nanobots
  • the Borg (a race made of other living species turned to cyborgs by adaptatible nanobots) and also the race of Nanites in Star Trek
  • the Replicators in Stargate SG-1. Several episodes also deal with various forms of nanotechnology.
  • The Powerpuff Dynamo (The Powerpuff Girls's robot), is made using nanotechtronic technology and a very rare titanium alloy to make her practically invulnerable. Her full name, the "Dynamic Nanotechtronic Monobot", is a combination of the first two letters of each word.
  • The Repair Ants used to heal damaged tissue in Jason X
  • the T-X (Terminatrix) in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
  • the T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day
  • the Moonlight Butterfly system in Turn A Gundam
  • the medical nanobots in The Island
  • the movie Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever features 'micro-devices', that can be injected into a victim to kill them at will.
  • the Hulk in the film Hulk, DNA mutated by nanomeds nanorobots
  • Peter Parker's new Spiderman suit in the Fox Kids series Spiderman Unlimited was composed of nanobots.
  • the Jake 2.0 Jake gets the power to control machines because of nano-tech.
  • the Nanomites in Paranoia 1.0
  • the nanites in I, Robot
  • the Nanogenes in the Doctor Who episode, "The Empty Child"
  • the "Nanotick" in the Disney Channel Series Kim Possible.
  • Nanobots in the computer animated TV series Max Steel, which allow a teenager to change his appearance and have superhuman powers.
  • the Otome in Mai Otome, which allows mainly schoolgirls to change their appearance and have superhuman powers.
  • the 'nanoscopic probes' in an episode of Teen Titans, used as a form of blackmail.
  • the "virus" bomb in Cowboy Bebop: The Movie was actually self-replicating nanobots targeting human cells.
  • the nanobots from several episodes of The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
  • the nanites (perhaps made out of VHS tapes) from MST3K
  • "Government-created killer nanorobots" are used as a "medical disease" in an episode of The Office (US) on NBC.
  • In the anime series Trinity Blood, Crusniks are humans who have special nanomachines infused into their blood, granting them superhuman abilities superior even to those of the vampires (who, in turn, are presented in the series as humans infected by an extraterrestrial virus).
  • Path of Destruction (film)


  • GUNNM features a mad scientist called Desty Nova who escaped from an idyllic paradise city of Tipahares. He conducted grotesque experiments with nanotechnology in the sprawling wasteland beneath the city, where no authority limited his work. Ironically, his work would later save the life of the protagonist, Alita.

Computer and video games

  • Galaxy Angel: Member of the Moon Angel Troupe Vanilla H (pronounced 'Ash') uses nanomachines to heal wounds and repair ships in battle. In Galaxy Angel II, she is an acknowledged expert of nanotechnology. In addition, Rune Angel Troup member Nano-Nano Pudding also uses nanotechnology to heal others.
  • Deus Ex: The player character, JC Denton, and several other characters, are augmented by nanotechnology, and indeed, nanotechnology is heavily involved in one of the plot endings. A fair amount of information about nanotechnology can be read in-game.
  • Deus Ex: Invisible War - The sequel to Deus Ex.
  • Everything or Nothing - A James Bond title.
  • Jets'n'Guns: One of the devices purchasable for the T-MIG 226 allows nanobots to repair the ship's hull when the heating level drops to zero. With upgrades they work faster.
  • System Shock 2: Nanites are used as currency to purchase items from replicators, which form the items from the nanites. Nanites are also directly used to perform certain tasks.
  • Neocron
  • Freelancer: Nanobots used to repair ship hulls.
  • Anarchy Online
  • Metal Gear Solid - Solid Snake was injected with nanites before his mission. The nanites serves as a communication device, and also as a medical device.
  • In the Ratchet & Clank series, nanotech is used as a health system.
  • In Total Annihilation all units and buildings are built via "nanolathes".
  • PlanetSide Nanites
  • Hostile Waters
  • Total Annihilation and expansions: The commander and various construction units and buildings make use of the "nanolathe" which is essentially a stream of nano-robots that link together to create complex war machinery.
  • Xenogears
  • Red Faction 2: Although the technology used to create the supersoldiers is called nanotechnology, it is never revealed whether it works as true nanotechnology.
  • Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty: Raiden, main character in the Plant Chapter, has nanomachines that can apparently heal open wounds if the player has Raiden stand or lay still. They also work in a way to retranslate certain words. For example, when the Ninja tells Raiden that she works for The Patriots, Raiden hears the name, La-li-lu-le-lo.
  • Mortal Kombat: In Mortal Kombat: Deception, the character Smoke is said to run on nano-technology, which, according to Noob-Smoke's bio in the game, repairs and reshapes him upon being reprogrammed by Noob Saibot. It is also stated that Noob planned to use Smoke's nanotechnology as a template to create an army of cyborg demons. Also, upon beating the game with Smoke in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon, his nanotechnology takes on a life of its own, multiplying at an exponential rate until it consumes the realm of Edenia, becoming a sentient mass of grey material that calls itself Smoke.
