Auto-Tune was originally intended as a way to correct notes sung flat or sharp by less than a semi-tone, but it was discovered to create a robotic sound when driven much further and combined with abrupt pitch shifts. The first (successful) usage of this style was on the 1998 number one {{Cher}} single "Believe", but because this method was kept as a trade secret at the time, it took a couple years for other artists such as Music/DaftPunk to discover it.

* A non-musical example in ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': when the family's dog builds himself a bipedal robot suit capable of translating his thoughts flawless english, his lines are auto-tuned to make him sound more robotic.

Added DiffLines:

* Music/ShaniaTwain's 2017 single "Life's About to Get Good" really does a number on her voice.

* Other than Music/KanyeWest, a few rappers have used this as a one-time thing (either to try something different or an attempt to get on the pop charts), examples being "Lollipop" by LilWayne (which had West on the remix) and "Sexual Eruption" by SnoopDogg ([[OddFriendship the remix of which featured]] Music/{{Robyn}}).

* Music/OwlCity uses Melodyne, a program similar to Auto-Tune, with the result (especially on his older songs) sounding like SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS.

* {{Justified| Trope}} with "Still Alive" (''VideoGame/{{Portal| 1}}'') and "Want You Gone" (''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'') , since it's meant to sound like [[SelfDemonstrating/GLaDOS a computer]] is singing it. Not Auto-Tune, per se. There are lots of tutorials on the Internet showing the procedure Valve likely used for the [=GLaDOS=] voice effect (it comes VERY close, even with other voice actors).

Added DiffLines:

* Oreo's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFsZ6BO4LU0 Wonderfilled ad campaign]] is fairly obviously auto-tuned, though it's downplayed in the later ads.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPoNpJ29bvE This]] fan-made remix of "[[ToyStory You've Got A Friend In Me]]" auto-tunes RandyNewman's voice, which, considering Newman isn't much of a singer to begin with, works surprisingly well,

* K-Ci and JoJo's Crazy overloads on the Auto-Tune, mostly on the background choruses, but on the radio version, there's a LOT more Auto-Tune on the lead vocals.
