* In ''UndocumentedFeatures'', the answer to this question is an unambiguous yes. Sufficiently advanced machine intelligences generate a [[Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}} Spengler]] [[LifeEnergy flux]], can learn KiAttacks, can operate [[EmpathicWeapon Empathic]] [[HumongousMecha Mecha]], and can even go to [[WarriorHeaven Valhalla]] when they die. On a more personal level, this is what [[Anime/TheBigO Dorothy]] is exploring as she sees whether she can become more than just a doll in the likeness of her creator's dead daughter. She even literally finds she can have dreams (and EroticDreams at that).

* Similarly to ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'', Tetsuro in ''GalaxyExpress999'' does the exact ''opposite'' of this. Instead of a robot wondering how human they are, Tetsuro feels he needs a machine body; until, in a reversal from finding it's true, he [[spoiler:finds that CyberneticsEatYourSoul and doesn't go through with it]].

* The ''VideoGame/MegaManX'', ''[[VideoGame/MegaManZero Zero]]'' and ''[[MegaManZX ZX]]'' series, features this trope now and then, though it's at least partially subverted in that the robots themselves don't believe in it. For the most part, the only robots that do are either dangerously malfunctioned (it's been argued that this label [[AIIsACrapShoot really means "they've achieved independent thought"]]) or outright criminal.

* This short quest forms building blocks for ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}} where the Railroad, humans who help liberate and integrate runaway synths, become a major player in the Commonwealth. The Railroad still helps synths 20 years after ''3'' though they are more extreme in their methods, if they weren't already before.

* ''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.

* ''FriendshipIsWitchcraft'': The kids are cheerfully taught in school that robots don't have souls and are second-class citizens, while androids ''do'' have souls [[RobotGirl Sweetie Belle]] is one of the few moral[[note]][[CrapsackWorld (least amoral)]][[/note]] characters in the series, but it is never made clear whether she is a robot or android.
