Writers may do this out of fear that the audience would be [[ViewersAreMorons too dumb]] to notice that the robot is, in fact, a robot. Or perhaps it's just a misguided attempt to make up for the fact that your average robot can't display most of the more subtle physical indications of intent.

* The [[MagicWand Devices]] in ''LyricalNanoha'' combines this with SurprisinglyGoodEnglish and [[GratuitousGerman German]].

* Chachamaru, the RobotGirl of ''MahouSenseiNegima'', is voiced in anime by Creator/CaitlinGlass, and sounds like [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Data's]] British sister, as described at the end of this page's notes above.

* Both averted and used in ''CannonGodExaxxion''. The cheap, massproduction MechaMooks used by the Riofaldians talk in heavy robo speak. The Terminal Drone type robots even use a more "techno"-looking [[UsefulNotes/{{Fonts}} font]]. The main character's RoboGirl partner and other robots created by his grandfather don't, since they're designed to pass for human. It averts one of the major robospeak cliches, as well. We never see the Riofaldian robots talking out loud to each other, only to organics. There's one scene that depicts a robot sending a comunication requesting backup, wich is represented by a speach balloon filled with what looks like barcodes.

** Corrective statement: The Rigellian Recorders were introduced in Lee and Kirby's ''{{Thor}}''. Qualifier: The humor potential lay unused until Roy Thomas's run on the book.

A "serious" android in anime, such as a RobotGirl, often talks normally but [[SpockSpeak very formally]] and [[CreepyMonotone with no inflection]].

* The robots in the original ''MagnusRobotFighter'' series were particularly stilted examples, with pauses between each word. The ValiantComics version justified RoboSpeak as deliberate law, to discourage the use of robots in fraud (along with a prohibition on making robots too human in appearance).

** Omega Supreme talked in robo-speak, but this was [[JustifiedTrope justified]] in that his mind was damaged in a failed attempt by Megatron to reprogram him as a Decepticon. This left him emotionally stunted, and this was reflected in his speech patterns. He ''could'' speak normally, with effort, but rarely chose to.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'', Perceptor, the Autobots' ultimate scientist, speaks with a voice synthesizer as an homage to StephenHawking. According to the creators, he deleted his personality to make room for more facts.

** In ''TransformersAnimated'', Perceptor, the Autobots' ultimate scientist, speaks with a voice synthesizer as an homage to StephenHawking. According to the creators, he deleted his personality to make room for more facts.
** In ''TransformersRescueBots'', the Bots have to resort to speaking this way whenever they are in the presence of civilians in order to give the impression they're machines and not sentient robots from another planet. This is a recurring theme throughout the first season, [[spoiler: until the episode "Shake-Up", when Frankie is trapped in a collapsing tunnel with Heatwave and he is forced to blow his cover to protect her by yelling at Boulder to stop creating sonic waves in his normal voice. Lucky for him, Frankie was unconscious at the time, and doesn't fully hear the Bots speaking normally until the first season finale.]] Chase is also shown to have a [[HollywoodToneDeaf painfully loud robotic singing voice]].
