* In the video for Music/PoetsOfTheFall's "[[https://youtu.be/MKk1u5RMTn4?list=PLjACqN5i5sDWIIpg-5EB4WcitMMqnXhFP Carnival of Rust]]," singer Zoltar, a SadClown fortunetelling automaton with peeling paint stuck in a glass case, is nonetheless very human in appearance (as played by vocalist Marko Saaresto) and psychology. He's obviously depressed and LoveHungry in the extreme, hoping to escape the [[CircusOfFear Carnival]], and his ObsessionSong is a desperate bid for the love of his customer, that he might be free. He [[HostileAnimatronics beats the walls]] of his case and sheds a SingleTear when his attempt fails.

* Warforged in TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons's TabletopGame/{{Eberron}} setting apply, though they're half-robot-half-golem... thingies. They were originally created to be warriors, and unexpectedly developed the capacity for emotion and self-awareness.

* Warforged in TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons's TabletopGame/{{Eberron}} setting apply, though they're half-robot-half-golem... thingies. They were originally created to be warriors, and unexpectedly developed the capacity for emotion and self-awareness. Some later material implied their supposed creators at least partly reverse-engineered them from relics found in Xen'drik, which given the history of that continent would allow several possibilities for why a constructed race capable of emotion and self-awareness would be desired.

* The Androids in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'' have human biological needs, benefit from Healing magic, and possess souls. They even age and die like humans, whereupon their soul is released to the afterlife and their body restored to the "factory default" with a new soul.

* A certain philosophical [[http://www.asimovlaws.com/articles/archives/2004/07/why_we_need_fri_1.html current]] on The Singularity states that any AI, potentially capable of self-improvement, that wasn't also ridiculously human (or even better, super-humane) in terms of morality and empathy would be a lot more dangerous than the whole stock of nuclear weapons on planet Earth. It makes sense... it's the difference between [[Film/{{Terminator}} SkyNet]] and the [[Literature/TheCulture Minds]].
