* ZigZagged by Sari from ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated''. She's a human raised by a human, who later loses her father to kidnapping and has to live with the Autobots in a warehouse until he is rescued. [[spoiler: Then it's revealed that she's a techno-organic, which means that she was a robot raised by a human raised ''as'' a human later partly raised by robots.]]

** But played more straightly in "I Sing the Body Electric" (sometimes also called "The Electric Grandmother"). A widower needs additional help in raising his children, particularly since his own other died young. So, he sends for an android grandmother who turns out to be ''incredibly'' good at the job and astute at human psychology. The widower and two of the children quickly grow attached to the android and consider her part of the family. It's just the middle child, who is still grieving for her mother, who "grandma" needs to win over.

* ''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.
