** Walter in Film/AlienCovenant. He is meant to be a similar model to David, thus they're both played by Creator/MichaelFassbender.

* The first ComicBook/PostCrisis version of ''ComicBook/Supergirl'' known as "Matrix". She is an artificial life-form called the "protoplasmic matrix", that Lex Luthor of the Pocket Universe has used to create her, who resembled his true love, the deceased Lana Lang. Lex had also patterned her physiology to resemble Superman's, whom he had seen by using one of his many inventions to look into the mainstream DC Universe.

* A few advanced servitors are like this in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'', and there's at least one case of an Adeptus Mechanicus adept deliberately seeking to ''become'' one.
** The Adeptus Mechnicus ''worship'' technology - if they can replace their bodies with tech, they will - Magos Geard Bure from the {{Literature/Eisenhorn}} series is basically a brain and a central nervous system encased in a metal body. They love MundaneUtility - Bure has no legs, just antigrav projectors. Another one, Dark Magos Deltrian from the Literature/NightLords series is a metal skeleton with a preserved brain. The most revered and ancient Tech Priests can actually replace their physical bodies entirely by transferring their consciousness to artificial crystals.

There's also at least one case of an Adeptus Mechanicus adept deliberately seeking to ''become'' one.

** Fate Averruncus appears to be one. Evangeline (the "[[RedBaron Doll Master]]") claimed that he moved like a construct, and Fate himself has claimed that he was "made". Not to mention that his real name is [[spoiler: Tertium, Latin for "[[YouAreNumberSix The Third]]."]]

* The Franchise/DoctorWhoExpandedUniverse Literature/EighthDoctorAdventures novel ''Interference'' introduces a whole society of these. See, when one of them dies, a new copy is created based on what those who knew them remember about them. (Side-effects include [[CreativeSterility infertility]].) This seems to be a surprisingly accurate process, as when one of the Doctor's companions gets lost and ends up joining them, he's still vaguely recognizable several iterations later, so the Doctor puts him back to the way he was before he got lost. He handles it quite well... for a while. Eventually, LossOfIdentity-based {{angst}}, HeroicBSOD, and referring to himself as "it" ensues. He's also quite [[LivingForeverIsAwesome disappointed to discover he's not even immortal.]] Indeed, he's basically unchanged except for the fact his dreams are excessively normal and he has a new knack for anagrams and crossword puzzles, and is entirely indistinguishable from a normal human.

* The support units from ''Literature/TimeRiders'' - robots created in the future that are almost exactly like humans. They are grown from cloned tissue, deliberately given the appropriate genetic makeup for up to 700% human strength, superior speed and reflexes ... and a brain the size of a walnut. They also have an incredibly powerful supercomputer hooked up to it. Aside from being seven feet tall and laden with more muscles than is strictly fair, they go from completely bald (after 'birth') to having fairly ordinary dark hair and grey eyes. They are flesh-and-bone rather than metal simply because it is better at learning and better at repairing itself on the field (flesh heals better than steel, at any rate). There are only two problems; they can't easily gauge emotional inflections like sarcasm, and they find it confusing and problematic to make a decision.

* Data from ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' is one of these who strives to BecomeARealBoy. He has real hair that grows and needs shaving, his body mimics human breathing patterns, his positronic brain can get "drunk" from the same intoxicating particles as everyone else's. Data is ''so'' physically humanlike, in fact, that he can be considered an artifical life-form as much as he can be considered an android.
