* In the ''{{Transformers}}'' franchise, God is Primus, the creator of the Cybertronian race. However, it turns out he's very real, and in ''TransformersCybertron,'' we find out that [[spoiler:the planet Cybertron itself is his "vehicle mode."]] If there's a {{Satan}} it's Unicron, the [[PlanetEater planet-eating titan]] that turns into a planet, and was Primus' enemy eons ago before the first Transformer was created. In fact, the Transformers were initially created for the sake of defeating Unicron.
** Oddly, despite being able to point to their [[OurSoulsAreDifferent souls]] on a numbered list of parts, a 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.
-->"In the spark of an enemy, there will be salvation, and in the darkest hour, there will be a light."

Two most popular scenarios are [[ThankTheMaker robots worshiping their creators]] or a DeusEstMachina. Compare AnimalReligion and MachineWorship.

* 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 <First-Thought//Giver-of-Will>, 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}}''
