* While the Combat {{Cyborg}}s in ''MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' are normally silent, body parts that have been damaged beyond a certain point will emit mechanical whirring sounds when they move, as shown in the hospital scene after the massive terrorist attack by Jail in ''[=StrikerS=]''.
* Dorathy from ''Anime/TheBigO'' makes very smooth mechanical sounds when she moves [[DependingOnTheWriter Depending on the Episode]]

This is a SoundFX trope relating to any robot, {{cyborg}} or MechanicalLifeform that makes mechanical creaking sounds when they move around. Most RealLife robots tend to make loud snaps and hissing noises due to the hydraulics or compressed air they use for movement and creaking noises mean that somebody has to pick up the oilcan ''stat'' unless they fancy replacing components.

components. In the case of dangerous robots in fiction, it ramps up the tension, but also makes it easier for the protagonists to run or hide.

Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Gamebooks]]
* In the ''Star Challenge'' books 2-Tor, your robotic companion, follows this trope to a T. The thing is very often described not only beeping or clicking, but also with flashing lights (at least it moves silently, since it hovers.)

* Most of the machines in ''Film/RobotAndFrank'' make extranious noise while moving.
* Spencer from the movie ''Film/StarKid'' makes note of this when attempting to sneak around his house late at night while wearing the cyber-suit.


Added DiffLines:

[[AC:Radio]]
* Marvin from ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' does this.
* The radio adaptation of the Twilight Zone episode "Uncle Simon" embodies this trope.

* Unlike the clanking, whirring robots usually represented by this trope, Ava from ''Film/ExMachina'' makes a rather smooth buzzing sound when she makes any significant movement, and she makes no noise at all with small movements. Even further, [[spoiler:any of Nathan's robots can cover up their noise when covered up by a skin sheath]].

* ''FiveNightsAtFreddys'': One of the most terrifying examples of this trope. We're all familiar with "SKREEEE!", "REARGHHHH!", "HISSSSGRH!" and "SGROURGHHH!"

"SGROURGHHH!" Otherwise, it's rather DownPlayed tough, while the animatronics do make other noises as they stalk you through the nights, they can also be quite sneaky as well.

* Even though the ''WesternAnimation/{{Mixels}}'' are all cyborg-esque in design, the only ones to make these noises are the steampunk-themed Klinkers, who creak with metal and make hydraulic hisses when they move.

* Most of the ''{{Bionicle}}'' web animations have this for ''all'' the characters. (Including [[FridgeLogic a few who are actually organic beings wearing armour]]). Averted in the DirectToDVD movies, however (save for a handful of instances).
