* VideoGame/{{ChoiceOfRobots}} has a chapter where you can design taste sensors for your robot, and even choose what sort of foods you want them to try. Later on, one of said robots expresses a desire to cook as well. They can even get drunk, if you so choose.

Added DiffLines:

* The synths in ''{{Series/Humans}}'' are capable of consuming food, which is stored in a bag in their torso for later regurgitation and disposal. This feature was presumably designed to make them more realistic companions since they were never supposed to become sentient.

* The Cryx Kraken Colossal from ''[[IronKingdoms WarMachine]]'' has a special rule called "Meat Fuelled" - allowing it to gain Focus Points when it kills a Living enemy Model. Essentially, it's a giant robot that eats people.

* Briarios and other cyborgs in ''Manga/{{Appleseed}}'' (by the same author as ''Manga/GhostInTheShell'') eat and drink the same food as humans do. It is explicitly stated that cyborgs like Briarios have "bio-packs" that perform all their biological functions.
* R. Dorothy Wayneright from ''Anime/TheBigO'' is shown mimicking Roger and pretending to eat, though she has no use for food and it's just to put people at ease.



* Used as a heartwarming moment in an episode of Anime/SpaceDandy. It opens with the narrator explaining what circumstances would lead [[TheSmartGuy QT]] to drink a cup of coffee. He spends the episode seeking the affection of a coffee machine he [[LoveAtFirstSight fell in]] [[WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove love with]], [[spoiler: with tragic results]]. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in that drinking it only blows out some of his fuses, but he just wanted to do it as a symbol of respect.
* ''RozenMaiden'', all of them. Though maybe it's due to their {{Magitek}}-ness.
* [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Guy]] is a cyborg (90%, below the head). His favorite food is niku-don, and he's shown eating some in one episode - half a dozen bowls and then some, when we see it. [[AllThereInTheManual Side materials]] indicate that it's for his own mental health, as the food simply gets burned inside him and provides no nutrients. He is the only non-human character shown eating in the show (excluding Mamoru and Kaido) - the Yuusha Corps like drinking oil though, while J and Lune aren't shown to eat.
* Chachamaru in ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' can eat and drink though she claims she has no sense of taste. Apparently it's to feel more human. Later, she can be seen licking an ice cream cone and is in the school's tea club. By the time of the ice cream event, she may actually be able to taste it considering the numerous upgrades.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/MrHublot'', a {{Steampunk}} cartoon where every living thing is actually mechanical, they eat not food, but some sort of congealed oil concoction. The dog can be seen to have steel nuts and bolts floating in it.

* In Alastair Reynold's ''Literature/TerminalWorld'' there exists "Carnivorgs" machines that use decaying neural tissue instead of circuits. To replenish their rotting parts, they eat brains.

* The Glitch from ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' require food and have a hunger bar like the organic races.

* The Glitch from ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' require food and have a hunger bar like the organic races. This is justified in the codex, where it states that their internal engine burns down food to provide energy.

* Genos from ''Manga/OnePunchMan'' is able to eat and taste food despite most of his body being replaced with cybernetics. Saitama notes that the guy who designed and built Genos' body must be a NiceGuy since he made sure that Genos could still enjoy the mortal pleasures of eating and drinking.

* Played with in ''{{Bionicle}}''. The Matoran were shown fishing and there was mention of food in the first few years of the story, but the characters were never seen eating the food. Since Matoran must wear their masks at all times and wouldn't be able to put food into their mouths, this resulted in a large dose of FridgeLogic... until it was revealed that they consume food by absorbing it through ''[[BizarreAlienBiology the palms of their hands]]''. Their Bara Manga counterparts also need to eat but are established to be mostly organic.
