Added DiffLines:

* The various characters of Raznar's [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2o4uJt5nuOkf7iZiR3UKmSlrsrKE_jCd Tanktoons]] are sentient UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and UsefulNotes/ColdWar-vintage [[TankGoodness tanks]] and [[TanksButNoTanks other armored fighting vehicles]]. Notably, cannon barrels are often treated almost like elephant trunks, serving as a weird combination of nose, hand, and gun.

* ''TabletopGame/Warhammer40K'': Many Chaos vehicles are possessed by demons, giving them an urge to kill and destroy. DependingOnTheWriter, "machine spirits" can be this as well.

* ''ComicBook/WackyRaceland'', DC's post-apocalyptic reboot of the ''WesternAnimation/WackyRaces'', has the racers' cars issued with AIs that are as surly and sour as their crews: all hard, grizzled veterans of the wasteland. In one issue they are parked outside a bush pub where their crews are drinking, and... indulging in less healthy chemical stimulations (willingly or not), while talking smack and dealing with wasteland critters. A six-legged mutant lizard jumps up and urinates on the Mean Machine, which fries it alive.

--->'''Mean Machine''': I've got to put up with a driver who gets me trashed in every single race and a biomechanical dog who wipes his wormy tailpipe on my seats on a daily basis. I sure as hell don't have to take crap from an eight-legged lizard.
--->'''Convert-O-Car''': Technically, that was urine.

--->'''Mean Machine''': Hey!

Ever since their invention, people have always been enamored with vehicles. So just like animals, they've been anthropomorphized. There are sentient and sapient cars, buses, trucks, [=RVs=] (motorhomes), [=ATVs=], trains (steam-powered, diesel-powered, or light rail), train cars, airplanes, helicopters, boats, ships, spaceships, etc. Name any vehicle, someone has probably made a character based on one. Some of them maintain a {{Masquerade}}, some do not, and some live in a world of their own without humans.

This trope does not cover vehicles that happen to have [=AIs=] when those [=AIs=] are treated as separate entities that are not integrated into the vehicle itself. Also, with the exception of {{Living Ship}}s, they have to be inorganic (in other words, not a "living" being).
