* One of these is the auto-pilot of a damaged plane in the WesternAnimation/BugsBunny cartoon "Hare Lift". (Even its ''head'' is just a tiny blinking light-bulb.) Upon being activated and seeing the severity of the plane's condition, it immediately straps on a parachute [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere and jumps]].

** General Grievous, though he is technically a {{Cyborg}}, invokes this trope with his appearance. A lot of the effect is from his skull-like mask, which all members of his culture wear.

* [[TheEmpire The Coalition States]] in ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' actually calls theirs Skelebots. Given that all their wargear (body armor, PoweredArmor, HumongousMecha, ''[[TankGoodness tanks]] and {{SpiderTank}}s, '''aircraft...''''') have a [[NothingButSkulls skull motif]], this was pretty much the logical extension. It's also useful in their role as military terror weapons.

It becomes faster and stronger if exposed to anti-undead ReviveKillsZombie effects, so its appearance is a dangerous misdirection.

** ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' concept art shows that the original plan was for the Nemoidians themselves to have elongated faces and skeletal limbs just like their battle droids. This was scrapped for the movie (perhaps because it would have required the Nemoidians to be fully animatronic or CGI, and they figured were already pushing it with Jar-Jar) and the EU explanation was retconned in.

** The suits of ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' frequently have parts of their inner frames exposed, especially the waists, giving them a bit of this aesthetic. It's a way to give them a low-tech, inhuman feel, befitting the especially gritty, down-to-earth atmosphere of the show.
