* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has this in the form of Dwemer automatons, ancient robots that serve as the guardians of Dwemer ruins. They range from the small and easily disposed Spiders, to the transforming Sphere (which rolls around as a metal ball before unfolding into a robot armed with both a blade and a repeating crossbow for combat) to the [[HumongousMecha Centurion]], a massive robot armed with a warhammer on one arm and a battleaxe on the other.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' has this In ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'', seen most prominently in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'', the form extinct [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] were a race of Dwemer automatons, ancient robots that serve {{Robot Master}}s. Known to them as the guardians of Dwemer ruins. They range "animunculi", they created these ranging from the small and easily disposed Spiders, miniature [[SpiderMech Spider Centurion]] workers to the transforming human-sized Sphere (which rolls Centurion soldiers (who [[RollingAttack roll around as a metal ball balls]] before unfolding into a robot armed with both a blade and a repeating and/or crossbow for combat) armed humanoid robots) to the [[HumongousMecha Centurion]], a massive robot armed Steam Centurion golems]]. Given that the Dwemer were known to tinker with a warhammer on one arm the "earthbones" (essentially the laws of nature and a battleaxe on physics in the other.''ES'' universe), their creations were built [[RagnarokProofing to last a long time]], with many still up and running in their old ruins even thousands of years after their disappearance. Plenty of intrepid scholars have attempted to gain control over these Dwemer creations in that time, but usually discover rather quickly that AIIsACrapShoot as the creations have the tendency to go berserk when activated outside of Dwemer ruins.

*** It's probable intention was to lampshade Transformers (ab)use of this trope. From Bulkhead's point of view, ripping out the innards of something that is very much alive is already horrible. Doing so in front of a child is downright barbaric, hence the warning. From Miko's point of view, one machine just tore apart another machine like they always do in Saturday Morning Cartoons... but in real life, which is cool. Also helps to set some subtle context that the same attitude is held in reverse by the Transformers. It's easy to kill something when it's a StarfishAlien.

If one wants something a bit more up the ladder in terms of "kill-tasticness" and "[[EliteMook non-suckitude]]", look at MechanicalMonster. If you want the guy ''building'' the mooks, that's the RobotMaster. Contrast with PlantMooks, the vegetative alternative.

* These are the main troops of the genocidal human civilization Wreathe in ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'', all modeled after Pre-Cambrian creatures. In a subversion, these are usually more powerful than lower level characters.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', the Institute utilizes Synth soldiers (mainly Gen 1 synths, which resemble [[Film/TheTerminator Terminator endoskeletons]], and Gen 2 synths, which look more like walking mannequins). In the DLC campaign ''Automatron'', the Mechanist unleashes an army of homemade robots to bring peace to the Commonwealth, chiefly by killing everyone. [[spoiler:This is due to [[AIIsACrapshoot the AI of the Mechanist's Robobrains taking the order to "help the people" to its logical extreme]].]] The DLC also introduces a Raider group known as the Rust Devils, which create robots of their own to terrorize the Commonwealth.

* The Invid in ''Anime/{{Robotech}}'' have the Inorganics, ugly animal-like combat robots they use to supplement their depleted numbers. They are only used by the Regent's faction, as the Regess was able to replenish her forces thanks to the resources available once she conquered Earth and the Robotech Expeditionary Force being too busy fighting the Regent and an internal civil war to come back and finish her off.
