* Because all the squadmates in ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' have the same animations, [[spoiler:Legion]] will often be hunched over and out of breath, or leaning against something, scratching, rolling his shoulders, or whatever else organic squadmates do. Considering that [[spoiler:Legion]]'s terminal was made specifically to interact with organics, it is [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in some respects that he would act like them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Webcomic/BobAndGeorge''. It is pretty ambiguous just what the main cast '''is'''. One the one hand, we see Mega Man with his head opened for repairs, cut in half and ending up fine, and we actually get to see him get built. On the OTHER, he eats ice cream and is apparently [[http://www.bobandgeorge.com/archives/020509c affected by drugs]].

Added DiffLines:

* While fleeing some singularly nasty adversaries in ''TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem'', Solomon Birch has to remind himself that he's [[TheUndead undead]], his body hasn't functioned for centuries, and therefore his muscles should ''not'' be burning from exertion.

* The robots on ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' switch between needing air and not needing air, depending on the situation. Like C-3P0, Tom sometimes had references in the script to smiling or, worse, having a look in the eyes... that he hasn't got. To say nothing of them eating, their apparent ability to cry, Gypsy's inexplicable fixation with Richard Basehart, etc. [[MST3KMantra Remember the mantra...]]

* Lampshaded in ''StarBlazers.'' Just for the heck of it, I.Q.-9 programs himself to be able to hiccup, like a human being. Then he can't figure out how to get rid of them, and spends the HIC! whole HIC! episode HIC! hiccuping HIC!
* Not exactly a robot, but [[Manga/FullmetalAlchemist Alphonse Elric]] tends to make weeping or out-of-breath noises a lot. He's a disembodied soul bound to a suit of armor. He should not need to do that. Despite making the sounds, however, he can exercise for hours without rest or sleep.

* The robot Pal-18 from ''{{Anachronox}}'' can get poisoned, confused, and any other status effect, just like his living party members; he can also get healed and resurrected with items. (Justified because healgrease contains nanobots capable of repairing both robotic and organic bodies, and timeminder tears mess around with time and essentially snatch you back from just before you were killed.) In a related case, all these things also count for Democratus, who is not a robot but a miniaturised ''planet''. Please don't think too deeply what it means when it takes damage, or when you pour healgrease on it.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', Chief Harkness is really an Android, A3-21, who has undergone MagicPlasticSurgery and a mind wipe, and you have to convince him of his true self.

* In ''TheOldRepublic'', Sith Warrior players are fully capable of Force Choking a droid. How, precisely, one induces a robot to ''choke in agony'' is not really explored, but a strong, crushing force damaging internal hardware isn't too much of a stretch.

* In ''DungeonsAndDragons'', constructs are immune to a lot of things because of their type. ''{{Eberron}}'''s Warforged, being made for player characters (and intelligent unlike almost all other constructs), lack many of the immunities for balance purposes.

* {{Transformers}} has this so often, and in so many different ways, that it has enough examples for [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Humanization an incredibly lengthy list]], with various instances of coughing and breathing being the most blatantly odd/difficult to explain away examples.

* ''{{Transformers}}'' in all incarnations go back and forth on the scale of humanness constantly. They can survive in space but they can make breathing noises. They endure great damage and don't act like they're in any pain but other times they get hit in the face and show about as much pain as a human. They have no blood (with their blue-or-purple fuel, Energon, being SymbolicBlood in incarnations where it runs throughout their bodies in liquid form - constantly seen in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime.'') but they blush red. The [[Wiki/TFWikiDotNet Transformers Wiki]] has a page of considerable size dealing with the matter.
