* ''ComicBook/MagnusRobotFighter'': Our hero was raised by the freewilled robot A-1, who trained him in robot fighting.
* In the ''ComicBook/{{Sillage}}'' Prequel Series ''Nävis'', the title character is raised on a jungle planet by a robot. However, she can also apparently talk to the local animals and has a tiger-like creature for a friend, so it kinda overlaps with WildChild.

* Irkens from ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'' are so far past TheSingularity that they are grown in factories. Zim loved the cold unfeeling robot hand that raised him.
** [[HeroAntagonist Dib]] and [[EnfantTerrible Gaz]] come pretty close--their dad, [[ReluctantMadScientist Professor Membrane]], is such a {{Workaholic}} that he usually communicates with them through a floating screen, and at least some of the messages seem to be recordings.

* Happens ''multiple times'' in the future chapters of Creator/OsamuTezuka's ''{{Manga/Phoenix}}'' saga. In ''Resurrection'' the mass-production Robitas are often used as nannies, which leads to some nasty consequences when one is wrongfully accused of killing the human child it once looked after. ''Nostalgia'', meanwhile, has what is probably the most twisted example of this trope. After her husband, who was the only other adult human on the small desert planet they bought with money from a bank heist dies, the protagonist, Romy goes into [[HumanPopsicle suspended animation]] and leaves her son to be raised by a robot until he comes of age [[ParentalIncest so they can populate the planet]]. When she comes out her son has no memory of her and believes the robot to be his real mother. ''Life'' has a semi-example, where a little girl is being raised by her grandmother who is so old that she's become a full-body cyborg who looks like a TinCanRobot.

* There's some {{Fanon}} floating around that [[MeetTheRobinsons Wilbur Robinson]] was primarily raised by the family robot Carl, due to Wilbur's parents Cornelius and Franny being a highly successful inventor and musician respectively. Since many of those same fans also believe that Cornelius had a paternal relationship with Carl during his early years, this comes off more as a mild PromotionToParent.

* This was discussed in a short story by SpiderRobinson, in which a time traveler, interested in studying the nature of humans, travels through time to ask a wise man whether an experiment was ethical: kidnapping children otherwise doomed to die in order to have them raised by robots using a language stripped of all religious references to see if they develop religion. The catch? The intensely curious wise man doesn't get to know the outcome of the experiment if he says it was unethical to kidnap the doomed children.
