* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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."

** ''ComicBook/FantasticFour'': The Thing once befriended a robot named Torgo from the planet Mekka; Mekka's organic population had died out in a disaster long ago, but their robot servants had survived and gone on to build a civilization of their own.

* As previously mentioned, all versions of ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'' are about this. More notably though, ''other'' alien species of robots would frequently appear, often without any explicit Cybertronian origins.

** The big winged {{Kaiju}} from "The Secret of Omega Supreme" would seem perfectly biological from the script (it hatches out of an egg and is hungry, after all), but its visual design looks mechanical. Perhaps it's just some kind of exoskeleton.
** The poor Lithonian robots from ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformersTheMovie'' certainly count (their planet gets eaten by Unicron). Supposedly, early drafts of the script had them as SiliconBasedLife instead, hence their planet's name "Lithone" (the Greek prefix ''lith-'' means stone).
* In ''WesternAnimation/ShadowRaiders,'' Tekla comes from Planet Tech. If she is typical, all the planet's inhabitants are made of a sort of living circuitry. Unfortunately, like the Lithonians mentioned above, Planet Tech is eaten by the Beast Planet.
