* Bumblebee in ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' seems to take this role on occasion. He gives the impression of actively trying to invoke the trope; Sam accuses him of faking [[CuteMute muteness]] at one point to try and be endearing.
** The third movie gives an almost [[EvilCounterpart darker version]] of this trope, with Soundwave and Laserbeak being "clients" to the human [[spoiler: Dylan.]] However, [[spoiler: it's more of a mutual respect than an actual friendship, as back story reveals that Soundwave respects Dylan because the human has an almost similar personality to his true master, Megatron.]]

** ''TransformersAnimated'' is somewhere in the middle: some of them act as Robot Buddies of Sari (mostly Bumblebee and Bulkhead), but they do plenty on their own, and there are quite a few episodes where she has little or no effect on the plot. And then it turns out [[spoiler: ''Sari'' is half-robot herself.]]

The logical opposite to AIIsACrapshoot (except when it [[KillerRobot isn't]]). Compare RobotGirl, DoAnythingRobot, and CompanionCube. May also be an AmusingAlien. Not to be confused with the UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem peripheral the VideoGame/RoboticOperatingBuddy. See also RobotDog, the dog-shaped subtrope. May be the KidAppealCharacter, and may also overlap with GratuitousAnimalSidekick when the robot is animal-like.
