* ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'' introduces the Metalmen, a race of aliens from [[AlternateUniverse Universe 6]]. While they heavily resemble robots, it's stated they are in fact living organisms.

** Imperial Knights and Titans of the Adeptus Mechanicus are a [[DownplayedTrope downplayed]] example compared to the Necrons; while they can express simple emotions, for the most part they are wholly machine but just have a very powerful machine spirit that gives it its semblance of intellect. They also require a specialized human pilot known as a Princep to do anything particularly extravagant.

** In fact it's actually implied in some parts that Mechanical life is the standard in the universe. Organics like humans are relatively rare and unusual, although other organic aliens do appear as well.

* In the French film ''[[Film/LeGendarmeDeSaintTropez Le Gendarme et les extra-terrestres]]'' (''The Gendarme and the Extra-Terrestrials''), police sergeant Ludovic Cruchot discovers that aliens have arrived to Saint-Tropez. They turn out to be metallic inside, consume oil, but able to impersonate anyone and have MindOverMatter powers. Additionally, when exposed to water, they quickly rust and die.

* The Kailon in ''Series/TheOrville'' are a race of intelligent machines who see organic life as inferior, to some extent.

* The Kailon Kaylon in ''Series/TheOrville'' are a race of intelligent machines who see organic life as inferior, to some extent. That said, Isaac rarely acts smug and always states his racial superiority matter-of-factly. He also seems fond of his crewmates and is genuinely interested in organic cultures. In a recent episode, he actually grows fond of Dr. Finn's children despite their unruliness, even reading a bedtime story to them in their mother's voice.

* An interesting example is the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' universe. What started as ordinary robots in the [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic original]] series were replaced by the ridiculously human Reploids in the ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series. After many events and a brush with TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt, they finally receive equal standing with humans in ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'', where they start blurring the lines between the two races. A few millenia pass, and both humans and sapient robots had pretty much become one species sometime around the extinction of traditional humans in the Legends backstory.

* The Exo in ''{{VideoGame/Destiny}}'' were created during the Golden Age for an unknown purpose, which some theorize to be for war, while others as [[{{Transhuman}} a desire to live forever]]. The resulting beings were machines with [[BrainUploading human minds uploaded into them]], and have all the other features of humans, such as [[RidiculouslyHumanRobot emotions like love, fear, shame, and anger]], as well as [[EatingRobot the ability to process food and drink]]. They're now counted as a separate species who fight alongside the rest of humanity.

* The Exo in ''{{VideoGame/Destiny}}'' were created during the Golden Age to fight some sort of war, but later achieved sentience through some sort of subroutine. They're now counted as a separate species, though they still fight alongside humanity as Guardians along with the humans and Awoken.

** An interesting twist on this comes in the form of the Vex. The Vex are an outwardly mechanical species of HiveMind robots who traverse space and time, build strange machines from entire planets, and [[RobotReligion worship]] [[EldritchAbomination the powers of the Darkness]]. Their designs and structures are all disturbingly organic in nature,
with their "home" the humans [[GardenOfEvil Black Garden]] being a vast cavern of verdant green grass and Awoken.red flowers. Deeper analysis shows that the Vex themselves are a form of liquid radiolaria - a single-celled lifeform - that works as a single massive, ocean-sized organic brain within each of the Vex structures, and that all of the Vex machines are soldified versions of this same radiolaria. Essentially the Vex ''turn themselves'' into MechanicalLifeforms to build their vast machines and constructs, then install an organic "mind fluid" of living Vex into these machines to control them.
