* ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'': A variant with a "Deceptively Sheep Robot" which [[GadgeteerGenius Mr. Cat]] built to infiltrate a group of sheep. The robot sheep looks almost exactly like a real sheep when stationary, but bleats in a robotic voice and moves in a very robotic manner. Not that anybody realized it, since they're all portrayed as idiots.

* Robots in the world of ''Literature/QuicksandHouse'' look extremely human, but they still have circuitry and wiring under the skin, and they can [[AIIsACrapshoot break down in strange and unsettling ways]] if not given proper maintenance.

* Placido from ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds'' looks like a normal human until he interfaces with his futuristic motorcycle - at which point his hips split into two sections, his knees bend backwards, and cable ports come out of his back.

Added DiffLines:

* Synths in ''Series/{{Humans}}'' look and sound human, although very limited in what they say. They are also, apparently, "fully functional" but don't enjoy it. On the other hand, those that have become self-aware behave in a very human-like manner.

* The ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series has [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Pfhor]]-created bio-android infiltrators/[[ActionBomb suicide bombers]] called Simulacrums, which appear human at a distance but have a tendency to shout things that no real human would ever say, such as "[[WordSaladHorror Frog Blast the Vent Core!]]".

* The ''VideoGame/{{Marathon}}'' series has [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Pfhor]]-created bio-android infiltrators/[[ActionBomb suicide bombers]] called Simulacrums, which appear human at a distance but have look noticeably disfigured and inhuman close range. This isn't a pressing concern for the Pfhor since "close range" usually means "within the blast radius", but their tendency to shout things that no real human would ever say, nonsense such as "[[WordSaladHorror Frog Blast the Vent Core!]]".Core!]]" while trying to blend in tends to give them away even quicker.

* Unfortunately, most robots designed to look human fall under this. Technology still has not advanced far enough to get real-life robots out of the UncannyValley. However, [[http://www.hansonrobotics.com Hanson Robotic's]] creation [[http://www.hansonrobotics.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Jules_011.jpg Jules]] comes pretty close. Not only can he form fairly realistic (and mood-appropriate) expressions, but he is advanced enough to hold a fairly decent conversation with someone.
