Added DiffLines:

* Tecna of ''WesternAnimation/WinxClub'' looks totally human, or at least as HumanAlien as the rest of the girls do, but WordOfGod has called her a 'fairy cyborg', implying that she might be part robot. It's never stated outright either way, and WordOfGod is being translated from Italian, sometimes worse than others, so it's possible it's even a case of misunderstanding that she's a 'technology fairy'.

* The Guardians in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' are ancient {{Magitek}} robots, but it is established that most of them are being controlled by [[EldritchAbomination Calamity Ganon]], and that's because it filled them with Malice, an organic essence of its body that can sprout eyes, mouths, and even produce monsters.

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** The younger Beaver Brother from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask'' has robotic-looking eyes and spinning mechanical object on his belly and also has robotic-sounding VoiceGrunting.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''WebOriginal/OrionsArm'' has natural biologicals, genetically engineered creatures, cyborgs, fully mechanical people, AI, and every possible combination thereof, but generally you can make a guess as to whether something is primarily a "biont" (biological creature), a "vec" (machine), or an AI. That is, until you get to the [[DeusEstMachina Archailects]], who are colloquially called "AI Gods" but do not consider themselves either biological or mechanical in nature. Most are a fusion of the two, and consider such distinctions to be unimportant.

** We know the Reapers reproduce by [[spoiler:liquefying various races and then converting that liquid into a new Reaper]], but they still look and sound entirely mechanical. This ambiguity is to be expected though, as they are basically [[SapientShip Mecha]]-[[EldritchAbomination Cthulhu]].

* The gem aliens of ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' look [[RubberForeheadAliens pretty human]] but were quickly revealed to be *[[TechnoBabble deep breath]]* pseudo-organic HardLight [[SelfConstructedBeing 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.
