* Any Autobot or Decepticon in ''Franchise/TheTransformers'' with a police vehicle as their alt-mode tends to be some form of cop, though the exact nature varies. Prowl, for example, is a rabidly ByTheBookCop [[spoiler: at least before he started suffering SanitySlippage]] while Streetwise tends to be portrayed as more of a CowboyCop.

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} Fallout 4]]'', Nick Valentine is ''both'': He's a (self-aware) [[FlawedPrototype old-model]] synth who has the neural copy of a pre-war police officer, and has a hard-boiled film-noir style detective persona (and a [[UncannyValley significant amount of missing skin coverings]]).

[[folder: Comics ]] * The comic ''TheSurrogates'' is definitely noir and cyberpunk, as well as the movie adaptation. * ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'' has the uneasy alliance between the imperial guard and the brothers of the sacred grove (not technically robots, but magically-animated puppets with many robot-like mannerisms). * In ''TopTen'', android cop Joe Pi has to deal with several cyber-phobic colleagues, including his new partner Irma Geddon. * The premise of ''{{Darkminds}}'' has detective Nagawa paired up with android Akane Nakiko (well, officially she's a cyborg, but it's more a matter of being an android with some biological components) to solve the "Paradox" murders [[spoiler:which turn out to have been purpetrated by one of Nakiko's prototypes]].

[[folder: Anime and Manga ]] * ''Anime/TheBigO'' episode "Eyewitness", which teams recurring [[FriendOnTheForce Military Policeman]] Dan Dastun with robot detective R. Freddy O'Reilly. And to a lesser extent, ''Anime/TheBigO'' in general, starring [[RobotGirl R.

* In ''HeatGuyJ'', the eponymous J is a large stoic android always ready to hand ut an epigram on what it means to be a man, who works with the 'cool' and laid back Daisuke (Dice). Collectively they form the investigative team of the Special Services Bureau in the city of Judoh.

* ''{{Armitage III}}'' plays this straight, down to the "I hate technology" exchange. * ''{{Appleseed}}'', sorta. Less Android and more HollywoodCyborg; less Detective and more SWAT/Counterterrorism. ** Besides the Deunan–Briareos pairing, there is also the Deunan–Hitomi pairing; Deunan is initially shocked that Hitomi is a bioroid (artificial human).
