* Starting with the PS2 games, ''VideoGame/ArmoredCore'' featured the option of changing your AC's computer voice, which the player only ever really heard at the beginning and end of missions. In ''Armored Core 2'' and later games, this was achieved by installing another head (which would cause the player to shell out a few creds just to get rid of the "neuter" voice of the default head unit). In other games, this was changed to an option in the garage menu. In the original ''Armored Core'', the head unit also changed the computer's voice, although one had to experiment to find the different voices; in [=''AC2''=], this function appeared in the specs.

* The computer voice in ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'' is male. "Please don't go. The Drones need you. They look up to you!" although one of the several Datalink-readers is female.

* Averted in one of AnneMcCaffrey's Acorna books. A male character who spends long stretches of time with no one but his cat and his ship's computer changed its voice from the default female, because apparently hearing a female voice made him stop at whorehouses too often.

** The FanRemake of ''Half-Life'', ''VideoGame/BlackMesa'' plays with this by having the PA system use the female voice from the tram until the military takes control of it, at which point it changes mid-sentence to a very intimidating male voice.

* ''{{UFO}}''. 'SID' [Satellite Intruder Detector] averted the usual trope by speaking in a deep, plummy male voice. A deleted scene even has 'him' singing "Home On The Range" as he floats through space.

* [[FanNickname Betty]] in ''Videogame/XBeyondtheFrontier'' is somewhere between the two. It's strange sounding. I remember it well because as soon as you begin your [[BagOfSpilling ship's bag spills]] and you have to sit through a long description of every system that no longer functions.
