And in this corner, we have the automaton. Perfect in every conceivable way, invulnerable to the wear and tear so common in humans, working tirelessly as long as it can maintain a power source. The machine has no sense of remorse or mercy and will do whatever is commanded of it to the bitter end. Alas, the machine lacks one thing- [[ThePowerOfLove Love]].

Who will win? Well, that's a question for the plot. Given that good guys almost always succeed, bet on that horse first- but more often than not [[MostWritersAreHuman it's the human we're supposed to be rooting for]]. Since God help us if the robot revolution comes and they really are better than us.
