* The gem aliens of WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse look [[RubberForeheadAliens pretty human]] but were quickly revealed to be *deep breath* [[TechnoBabble pseudo-organic hard light bodies projected by a magic rock]]. Later, they were revealed to not only use [[HeartDrive cores]] based on the same principles as their technology, but to actually manufacture those bodies for specific purposes and have specific product lines, putting the gems somewhere between StarfishAliens and StarfishRobots, depending on how you define robot.

* Of the playable characters in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'', some are clearly cyborgs (Genji, Torbjörn) or robots (Zenyatta, Bastion), but some don't have a clear in-game distinction between ArtificialLimbs and regular ones covered in ([[PoweredArmor powered]]) armor. Examples include any of Pharah's arms and legs, [=McCree=]'s left arm, Hanzo's right forearm and feet, Torbjörn's left arm, Reinhardt's entire armor-clad body, Symmetra's left arm, and Lúcio's legs.

* The Shadows in ''Series/BabylonFive''. It's never clear if the insectoid monsters we see are the representatives of the species or some kind of service and attack drones, since the race's counterpart, Vorlons, are EnergyBeings, and it'd be strange if the (at least) equally advanced Shadows still klinged to physical forms.
