* In ''XMenEvolution'', we see a petrified [[spoiler:Mystique]] seem to shed a tear at one point -- or was it just condensation? Subverted in a later episode when [[spoiler:it turns out that the real Mystique is still alive and the statue was just a statue all along]].

* The ''TransformersAnimated'' episode "Along Came A Spider" ended with Blackarachnia crying. Justified, since Blackarachnia is part organic.
* ''GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' has Aya, a robot, shed a tear at one point. Her body is a collection of smaller drones held together by wires and Green Lantern energy, making it impossible for her to cry in such a manner.

* Red Tornado sheds a single tear in a ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' episode. His episodes are huge {{tearjerker}}s though, so you can't blame him.

* In ''ComicBook/TheAvengers #58'' we see TheVision, an artificial being who overcame his destructive programming and saved the Avengers, shed a single tear when asked to join the team. Even the title of the issue recognizes this trope: "Even an Android Can Cry."

* In ''[[{{Kikaider}} Android Kikaider: the Animation]]'', Jiro (the titular android) can be seen shedding copious amounts of tears, despite the fact that robots obviously do not have tear ducts. [[spoiler: Arguably a justified situation; not only is Jiro in possession of a [[RestrainingBolt conscience circuit]] which blesses him with a full spectrum of human emotion, but he now has to stand on the sidelines while his LoveInterest is being traumatized for life by her MissingMom. Turns out Mom was a DeepCoverAgent working for BigBad Professor Gil, and only married Mitsuko's father in order to keep an eye on him and his robotics research. Mitsuko and her kid brother, Masaru, were just part of her cover. And if that wasn't bad enough, Gil has now given Mom orders to gun Mitsuko down before Jiro's very eyes. The experience of Mom holding a gun to her head is enough to give Mitsuko the [[HeroicBSOD Blue Screen of Death]]. It's when she softly whispers, "Please, Mother. Kill me," that Jiro's hurricane of emotions find their conduit.]]
* [[spoiler: Emerl]] in ''SonicX'' does this after [[spoiler: seeing his unwilling destroyer, Cream, crying over the Old Yeller-like moment.]]

* RobotGirl Chachamaru of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' once cried after a major breech of her privacy ForScience. It was just lens-cleaning fluid, but tears nonetheless.
