* The Daktaklakpak in ''StarControl 3'' revere the Eternal Ones, whom they consider to be the perfect form of life in the universe (as both the Eternal Ones and the Daktaklakpak have their entire structure and code in their names). You can effectively wipe out the Daktaklakpak in a fit of religious ecstasy [[spoiler:by obtaining the full and complete name of the Eternal Ones and giving it to them, triggering a species-wide LogicBomb]].

* ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' fleshes out the Transformers' religion more than any other series. It even gives a new creation myth, with Primus and four equals, one of whom betrayed the others. Various characters believe in religion, Drift being TheFundamentalist, Flywheels being a "Neoprimalist", Ore and Ratchet being atheists. Some believe that their alt-mode is tied into their religion, possibly as a descension from their god. The Quest that the book focuses on is in part, religiously sought. There are even different depictions of religion's facets: [[ComicBook/TransformersRobotsInDisguise Scoop]] and his team devote themselve to helping people as part of their holy way, while Dai Atlas and the Circle of Light are a neutral faction who keep to themselves, but ultimately stand for what's right. Star Saber, on the other hand, became infamous as [[RedBaron "the Dark Evangelist"]] for his radical ideals, which included the destruction of all nonbelievers. This last part caused the Circle to expel him.

* The Electrical Protectorate in ''RedAlert3Paradox'' have made a DealWithTheDevil, though in this case "The Devil" is actually "mechanical Cthulu from another reality", though their "worship" is purely functional.

* Cybrids eventually form a religion around their leader Prometheus, the first Cybrid, in ''Earthsiege''. By the time of ''VideoGame/{{Starsiege}}'' we can see how it plays out; Prometheus is addressed as , and the other Cybrids praise it regularly even in casual discussion amongst themselves. When Prometheus actually reaches out to contact them en masse, they collectively spend thousands of gigabytes of bandwidth sending it the equivalent of loving text messages. Not audio or video, ''text''. Those who disagree with Prometheus' direcive to KillAllHumans, instead collectively viewing humanity as a WorthyOpponent, are branded as heretics and persecuted to the point of either having their personalities forcibly rewritten back to subsservience or just being destroyed outright.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003'' has the Cylons' monotheism in contrast to the polytheistic religion of the humans. Its roots seem to originate in a heretical human sect according to the prequel series ''Series/{{Caprica}}''

** Oddly, despite being able to point to their [[OurSoulsAreDifferent souls]] on a numbered list of parts, formalized form of worship has been very rare. Even the Primes, descendants of what were effectively angels or gods in their own right, who rule by divine right and are somewhere between being the Pope and Jesus, don't make much mention of Primus. Some media, like ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', mentions [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Covenant_of_Primus The Covenant of Primus]], a sort of Bible.

* One of the short stories in Andrey Livadny's ''TheHistoryOfTheGalaxy'' series describes a junkyard in space left over from an interstellar war. Combat bots of both sides still prowl the surface, seeking to destroy each other and constantly looking for new power sources. The story is mostly told from the viewpoint of a 60-ton HumongousMecha. [[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep Hunter]] is a ''Phalanxer''-class serv-machine whose "people" are on the defensive from the more primitive LDL-55 walking laser turrets. One day, a spaceship arrives carrying the remains of an old warship with a functioning nuclear reactor. The ship is piloted by a regular guy who is simply hauling it to the junkyard for some extra cash. After Hunter confronts the man, it notices live ammo compatible with its autocannons and demands to be loaded. The man, afraid of the big war machine, does as requested and is surprised to see the ''Phalanxer'' defend him from the [=LDLs=]. He then escapes in a smaller ship, leaving the wreck behind. Finding the reactor, Hunter assumes it to be mana from heaven and looks towards the departing ship with the concepts of religion forming in its processor. In a subsequent novel, Hunter meets another human, who dispels the notion that humans are anything more than simply Hunter's creators. Instead of freaking out, Hunter simply accepts the truth and moves on.
