* 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.

An artificial lifeform raises a normal child, whatever the 'normal' standard is. The reasoning can be different each time; sometimes the parents are [[ParentalNeglect absent, but still around]], leaving the robot as their only friend. Other times the parents are [[DeathByOriginStory dead outright]] leaving the robot to be the [[PromotionToParent only parental figure the child has]].

* Hester Shaw from ''MortalEngines'' by Phillip Reeve was raised for several years by a Stalker named Shrike (think ''Series/DoctorWho'''s Cybermen mixed with Rampancy-stage AI from ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'') after her parents were murdered. Actually, she gets worried that she is little more that a piece in his collection, and runs away, breaking his heart in the process.
