* ''TabletopGame/{{Alternity}}'': The mechalus from TSR's short lived game are an alien race that merged with machines at some point in their history. Essentially, each mechalus is born as a cyborg, pre-implanted with {{Nanotechnology}} from its family line. They were later adapted for the ''TabletopGame/D20Modern'' book ''d20 Future'', under the name "aleerin".

* The race of the titular character from {{Bomberman}} is usually this (his race changed between robot, alien, and humanoid with a helmet in his earlier games). More recent games seem to have settled on his race being a race of Robotic Lifeforms.

* ''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]].
