** 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 [[DivineRightOfKings 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 ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePreSequel'', some of the Claptraps are said to worship [[Film/{{Robocop}} The Almighty Robot Policeman]]. Wilhelm worships him as well, though he is not a robot, but he would very much like to become one [[{{Cyborg}} and is well on his way there]].

* Robert Sheckley's ''Human Man's Burden'', a parody of colonial stories with heroic whites ruling over various dark-coloured people, have robots as stand-in for the latter. When they begin to doubt their Human Master they start performing rituals to the "forbidden Fuel God" until loyal robot foreman Gunga-Sam scolds them for losing faith in humanity.

* The [[MechanicalLifeforms Steammen]] of the ''Literature/JackelianSeries'' are devout followers of the Steamo Loas, ancestral spirits that manifest within the vapors exhaled by their successors. They sometimes take possession of a steamman to speak prophecy or physically direct their host's actions.

Added DiffLines:

* The Shambali in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' are omnics who had what they describe as a spiritual awakening and established a monastery in the Himalayas. Not much is currently known about their belief system except that they believe they have souls and in the existence of some sort of entity, spiritual plain, or state of being called the Iris, which unites humans and machines.

* All robots in TrippingTheRift are devout theists. They know ''exactly'' who their creators are an certainly don't want to be worshiping them.

* In the video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jduMIUt9M3M&feature=em-uploademail "Unexpected God"]] by atheist youtuber DarkMatter2525 robots believe that their creator is a being much like thought of in religions. Thus the robot main character rejects the human he meets as being their creator, and this is treated [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything similarly to certain people rejecting evolution]].
