* The voice of [[SimpleStaff Raising Heart]], the first [[{{Magitek}} Device]] we encounter in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'', is that of a female's. Of course, [[SinisterScythe Bardiche]], the next Device we see, averts this by being having a male voice. Same with the next Device. And the next Device. And the next Device... as of the third Season, straight usages of this trope seems to be in a minority, with only Raising Heart, [[RollerbladeGood Mach Caliber and Blitz Caliber]], [[TrickedOutGloves Kerykeion]] and [[{{BFG}} Storm Raider]] having female voices.

Additionally, studies have shown that under stressful conditions, like being in the middle of an aerial dogfight, it's easier to understand what a female voice is saying compared to male voices. With this in mind, it makes sense to give a feminine voice to systems that are very important to listen to.

* Aurora Unit 242 and the voice of Samus' gunship, both from ''[[VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption''. The Power Suit also has an onboard voice in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime2Echoes'' and ''Corruption'', though its lines are limited to a couple of generic phrases such as "Recording to logbook" and "Data received" (the latter when someone's trying to send you on a FetchQuest). The Suit's voice was also added to the PAL version of the first ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime''.

* In ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarUniverse'' and ''VideoGame/PhantasyStarOnline2'', [=CASTs=], a race of intelligent androids, can speak as animatedly as their biological compatriots. Their voices, however, have a very distinct electronic reverb effect added to them.

* VAL in ''VideoGame/{{Startopia}}'' is a parody of [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL]], but has a pleasant British (if a bit snarky) accent (voiced by William Franklyn).

* {{Microsoft}} has released a counter to {{Apple}}'s Siri called [[Franchise/{{Halo}} Cortana]]. Naturally, Cortana is voiced by Jen Taylor. Most commercials tend to pit Cortana vs. Siri and inevitably end with Siri appearing as inferior. Cortana also sounds less machine-like than Siri.
