* In the Manga/MahouSenseiNegima chapter ''The Logic of Illogic'', Hakase viewed Chachamaru as JustAMachine until she found Chachamaru's video folders, which were loaded with shots of Negi (and cats).

** The most convincing moment being: [[GrowBeyondTheirProgramming Chachamaru stopping Hakase from futher inspecting those folders]] [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters (with force).]]

* This was what the TSAB thought about the Wolkenritter in ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAs'', even thought all of their actions during the season suggested the exact opposite (something that Chrono points out when he reveals that little factoid). Although the next episode reveals that this was actually true to a degree up until Hayate became their master.

* When Comicbook/IronMan and Comicbook/DeathsHead team up against Recorder 451, Death's Head is surprised that Tony hasn't ruled out killing their target, and asks if he's one of those heroes who have a code against killing that doesn't apply to robots. Tony assures him that [[SomeOfMyBestFriendsAreX some of his best friends are robots]], before realising "That sounds kind of robot racist, right?"

* In ''Terminator: TheSarahConnorChronicles,'' "it's just a machine" is pretty much a mantra among the characters who have harsher views on robots and AI. Sarah Connor and Derek Reese are both quick to remind John that Cameron, the resident Terminator, is exactly this. John, however, feels differently about machines in general and Cameron in particular, due to his experiences with "Uncle Bob".
