*** A humorous moment in "Masters and Students" has Jack trying to work on a regular motorcycle and Arcee (a motorcycle Transformer) is referring to parts as "doohickey." As Jack points out the irony that she doesn't know how a motorcycle works she asked if he could replicate a small intestine.

* ''VideoGame/StarbaseOrion'' has the Cybans (or Cyban, the game is a bit ambiguous on the plural form). According to their [[AllInTheManual backstory]], they started with one unit becoming self-aware on a derelict spaceship. Despite their electronic memory, they have no idea who built the first unit (or the ship). That unit built more like itself until the ship crash-landed on a surprisingly-habitable planet. The Cybans "upgraded" themselves to be powered by consuming bio-fuels (justifying them using farmers) and formed the Community of Cybans. After achieving spaceflight, they met organic races, who viewed them with disgust and attacked. The peaceful machines were forced to learn warfare and adapted their forms to be more like the organics (i.e. bipeds). In-game, the Cybans are the best researchers and engineers (lore: thanks to Cla-TK-7-7A) with a rich homeworld (lore: thanks to Magistrate Xalon). WordOfGod is their ships were inspired by both [[Franchise/StarTrek Borg]] and [[Franchise/BattlestarGalactica Cylon]] aesthetics, and each larger class appears to build on the previous smaller ones with logical additions.

These may be robotic animals, plants, micro-organisms, or sapient creatures. If they are sapient, they would never wish to BecomeARealBoy because, as far as they can see, [[AndroidsArePeopleToo they are as real as that boy]].
