* General Tik-Tok in the [[Literature/LandOfOz Oz]] books, starting with ''Literature/OzmaOfOz''. Who may have the distinction of being the first depiction of a clockwork-powered robot in fiction. By extension, ''Literature/{{Wicked}}'' also has tik-tok creatures, namely Madam Morrible's servant, Grommetik.

** ''The Complete Sha'ir's Handbook'' Al-Qadim supplement had the Clockwork Mage kit, which allowed the creation of Mechanicals -- clockwork-based machines which could be used while adventuring or left to perform some task autonomously until they wind down. These has magical cores for control and spellcasting, but are powered by springs or even steam engines.

* Most of the known lifeforms in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' are biomechanical, and the mechanical halves are clockwork (at least we know they are in the case of the Matoran Universe characters). They've also designed and built pure robots, also clockwork. As far as the toys themselves go, gear-based action features were all the rage in the line's early run (2001-2005), then they phased them our in favor of better articulation or simpler gimmicks.
