* ''TwoGuysAndGuy'' has a robot created by [[MadScientist Frank]] become self-aware and telling his creator that he's been experiencing hopes and dreams, and now wonders about his purpose. He has concluded that he's the result of Man trying desperatly to make sense of his own place in the cosmos by creating an equal. [[AwfulTruth Frank tells him that that's the purpose of the robot model before him]], HIS model is for painful torture experiments.
* ''SaturdayMorningBreakfastCereal'' has a robot ask his creator if he has a soul. The scientist responds that, yes, as a thinking, aware being, he now has a soul as the universe bestows one on any creature that achieves awareness. It then takes a [[NightmareFuel horrifying]] turn as the robot suddenly wonders why it feels like they've had this conversion before. The scientist specifies that they have it every three years, then [[PoweredByAForsakenChild drains the robots soul from its body]] and adds it to a storage tank.

* In KingdomHeartsDreamDropDistance it was stated during [[{{Film/TronLegacy}} The Grid]] that Programs do not have hearts. However, Sora refuses to believe it.

* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'' analyzes how intellectual functions like creativity work outside of human mind. For example, a computer can be creative by applying all solutions until one works, much like nature is creative through natural selection ensuring only those adapted to the environment survive.

* This is the driving question in ''Literature/HaloSaintsTestimony'', a short story about an AI in court arguing against its own termination, which is due to happen that day. To prove she is a being, she testifies how she has traits, desires, and dreams, the latter of which she even replays for the jury.

* ''Vee Is Calling'' has [[spoiler:Vee herself, a sapient computer virus posing as a cute girl on a video chat line. If she likes you enough by the end of the date, she confesses to trying to take over your computer, remorsefully says you "don't deserve that", restores your files, and disappears in a flash of binary code.

** ''FanFic/OnTheShouldersOfGiants'' dealt with this issue in a similar fashion. After an incident that can only be described as "[[InstantAIJustAddWater Instant AI Just Add]] Some ImportedAlienPhlebotinum ThePrecursors Left Lying Around", humanity (whose primary [[PlanetOfHats Hat]] in this 'verse is being DangerouslyGenreSavvy) responded by ''giving it the vote''. And then there's [[ReligiousRobot the AI who became a rabbi]] and another AI who's being treated for [[ShellShockedVeteran post-traumatic stress disorder]].

* 'Humanity' is one of the prevailing themes throughout ''TrinityBlood,'' with specific emphasis on the idea of "What makes someone a human?" The show/manga/novels use both androids and vampires to explore this question.

* In ''GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'', the villains of the second arc are the Manhunters, who detect the capacity of emotion as a red spot in the chest (never mind that emotions initiate in the ''head'', just go with it). When Aya (an android) saves Razer from one, we get a [=POV=] from the Manhunter, showing the humanoids with the emotion color, and Aya as an outline. Then, the red appears in her. The Manhunter intones "Emotions detected" and attacks her.

* During the AdventureTime episode "B-Mo Lost", the titular robot gets his batteries wet while swimming [[NoWaterProofingInTheFuture and he nonchalantly ejects them to avoid shorting out]], then falls over completely shut off. After he's had time to dry off, somebody sticks the batteries back in, and he comes online with a cheerful yawn: "Goodmorning everyone, I didn't have any dreams!"
