* Society in ''Literature/AlienInASmallTown'' seems to have decided the answer is yes, but not before having treated its robots very badly for a long time first. The robot Barney Estragon explicitly says he believes he has a soul, and that having a body built by humans is not so different from a human having a body grown in another human's body. Mention is made of an [[RobotWar "Android Uprising"]] having happened at some point in the past, but [[NoodleIncident we are given almost no details about it.]]

** The episode "Sea Change" declared that Transformers have souls like organic beings, while less advanced robots do not.
** ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'' named Transformer souls "Sparks," and they became an important part of the Transformers mythos.
