* 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.

* Octus from ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' is seen eating icecream bars in one episode.
** Not only that, he also ate cookies when disguised as Lance and Ilana's father. Plus, unlike most examples of this trope, he's also capable of tasting them.

* Chachamaru in ''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.

* {{Subverted}} in ''Film/AIArtificialIntelligence'': the android David tries to eat spinach to fit in with his human family, 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.
