* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}''. Even all the animals in their world are also vehicles: we have farm and construction equipment standing in for cattle, tiny [[StealthPun VW Beetles]] for insects, toy cars for dogs/cats/rodents, remote control aircraft for birds, and model trains for snakes.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant''. He can heal himself and he eats metal to live. His "stomach" even starts growling if he goes too long without food.
* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Nine}}'', the sackdolls are mechanical lifeforms imbued with the spirit of their creator.

* The Mechon from ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'' are a race of {{Mechanical Monster}}s originating from Mechonis that have been in a long conflict against the [[HumanAliens Homs]] of Bionis. [[spoiler:They are also NOT lifeforms, much to the surprise of the protagonists. The real mechanical lifeforms are the Machina, the true humanoid inhabitants of Mechonis. The Mechon are just the creation of one of them]].

The Machina still play this trope straight however as they have metal skin, don't seem to consume anything but water and can live indefinitely]].

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', it's mentioned that there's a world where all organic life went extinct, but sapient robots still survived. Strife, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Natural Selection and Survival of the Fittest, petitioned [[TopGod Fauna Luster]] to consider robotic life to qualify as life and was granted.

* Though one can argue whether they are truley life forms, for the most part the Glitch of ''VideoGame/StarBound'' fit this.
** Starbound also features a fruit known as an "Automato" which is a tomato made of metal, and bares a resemblence to the Glitch.

** It isn't clear if the Quintessons are this trope or [[{{Cyborg}} cyborgs.]] The fact that they make a "squish" noise when they get smacked around would seem to indicate the latter.** The episode "Quest For Survival" featurs the Morphobots, a species of alien "mechanical plants" who naturally feed on "robotic insects." After allowing them to chow down on the episode's rampaging swarm of Insecticon clones, the Autobots then get rid of them by loading them into a rocketship and sending them to "a planet of robotic insects."
