* In the movie continuity of [[TransformersFilmSeries Transformers]] there are several nods to the robots having families. Optimus Prime and Megatron are implied to be brothers (whether literal or metaphorical isn't entirely made clear), the 3 Arcee bikes have been referred to as sisters by some sources, Jetfire mentions having a mother and a father (who was apparently "the first wheel"), The Fallen and the Dynasty Of Primes are all brothers and Optimus is a great descendent of one of them. Oh and The Twins, who are... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin robot twins]].
* ''Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse'': Tony Stark builds a number of [=AI=]s that join the "family business" so to speak. DUMM-E, J.A.R.V.I.S. F.R.I.D.A.Y., and partially, [[spoiler: The Vision]] either help him in Stark Industries and/or in Avenging. In fact, ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' plays out like a teenager rebelling against his father and Tony even jokes that Ultron is "breaking your old man's heart".

* Machine People in the "Anime/{{Leijiverse}}" (featured in Galaxy Express 999 and many others) fall into this category; they're all transformed humans, for the most part, but sometimes we see scenes of things like in "Cosmo Warrior Zero" where robot mommies are running away from explosions holding their robot babies.

* This can be done in TheSims of all places, particularly Sims2. Servo units are fully functional characters, just with an unusual look and weird wants/needs. They also inherit all their creator's talents. After making one Servo, the Servo can create others, easily filling a house. Since Servos are essentially immortal they will usually outlast their creators by a long shot. It's entirely possible to have a single servo and it's descendants max out the game (learning all skills et all) for you.
** The Sims 3 also has this. Any Simbot that is built will regard the person who built them as their parent. If the person who built the Simbot has any biological children, then the Simbot will regard them as half-siblings. Simbots can also build their own Simbot children.

** The Core: Extended book elaborates. They're actually capable of "sexual" reproduction using an internal manufacturing device that constructs a new "brain" and newborn chassis from a combination of both parents' blueprints, or genes. And it's possible to make sperm with genomes translated from a Cog's chassis as well.
