* Franchise/{{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.

Possibly justified in that some continuities are rather vague about whether Cybertronians are true robots or MechanicalLifeforms of some sort.

Added DiffLines:

** Bender also makes huffing noises when the crew are running for their lives (which is quite often).

Added DiffLines:

** On several occasions, it's been stated that as a robot, Bender lacks the ability to taste, which is why he's a LethalChef, but we see him visibly cringe upon trying anchovies, and when he first tries Slurm, he notes that it's not that bad.

* ''{{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 [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Humanization a page of considerable size]] dealing with the matter.

* An episode of ''SamuraiJack'' featured a group of metal-eating robots who, of course, forgot they were robots (thanks to synthetic skin). They're defeated when, in their frenzy, they tear the skin off each other, and, seeing metal, consume each other.

* K-9 in the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "Destiny of the Daleks" comes down with LampShaded but unexplained laryngitis. (''This'' form of laryngitis explains a change of voice actor later.)

* 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...]]
