* In ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'', The machines created by [[spoiler:[[FriendToAllLivingThings GAIA]]]] consume grass and other organic materials in order to fuel their [[MookMaker Cauldrons]] and themselves.

* {{Subverted}} in ''Film/AIArtificialIntelligence'': the android David tries to eat spinach to fit in with his human family (and because of a dare by his jealous human 'brother'), but ends up causing his machinery to jam on it, so a tech-support team has to open him up and dig the spinach out. Woops.

* The cars in ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' not only consume fuel (they drink it from a straw rather than taking it in through their gas valves) but also other metal objects like nuts and bolts, as with "human" food including fruits and vegetables, and ''meat''. Except nobody knows where their meat products come from considering the fact that the animals in their world are also vehicles like them, with their cattle being portrayed as either farm or construction equipment.
** Cars kill farm and construction equipment for food? Who wants tractorburgers? Come and get 'em! Only $2.50!
** In ''WesternAnimation/Cars2'', Mater ate wasabi, mistaking it for ice cream. FireBreathingDiner ensues.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Downplayed|Trope}} in ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotboy}}''; he and Robotgirl are shown to be able to eat human food, but whenever they do it gums their gears together, which brings up the question of [[FridgeLogic why they have]] [[InventionalWisdom a sense of taste]] but no mechanical stomach for food to go.
