* ''Series/DoctorWho'' The Doctor fells this towards his TARDIS (a.k.a. "You Sexy Thing"), of course, this is because the TARDIS ''is'' a living thing. [[spoiler:The TARDIS felt the same way towards the Doctor. The Doctor didn't steal the TARDIS, it was the other way around.]]

* In Sandy Mitchell's TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Literature/CiaphasCain novel ''Death of Glory'', a character born in the ship is able to tell something goes wrong from Cain's quarters, long before the alarm rings. Cain compares it to how himself instinctively "feels" an underground environment.

** One of the easiest ways to diagnose certain problems with a car is to drive it around and make note of anything unusual or out of the ordinary. It might not tell you exactly what part is wrong, but it gives you a place to look. For mechanics paid to fix others' cars, this is also needed to verify the complaint, and makes a nice diagnostic tool even alongside the thousand-dollar scanners and gauges.

* Jake Holman from ''TheSandPebbles'' feels more comfortable around machines than around people. Given the way he affectionately speaks to the ship's steam engine, it almost qualifies as CargoShip.

** Come fourth edition and this becomes a playable archetype. A Technomancer is someone born with a strange ability that essentially allows one to use the rules for Magic to replicate the abilities of a Hacker... or a Rigger. A Technomancer is able to control vehicles, drones and computers with their willpower, compile artificial intelligences called Sprites, and even go into strange, unimaginable Resonance Realms. A Technomancer Rigger can have a genuine and intense bond with their vehicle, their weapons, and any other piece of machinery that enables them to perform far beyond what they ought to be capable of.

* Souichi Sugano of ''Anime/ExDriver'' has a knack of understanding automobiles. When Lisa first drove her Stratos without fully understanding how to control it, Souichi straight up says the car was "crying" being pushed by Lisa's driving.
