* ''ShamanKing'' had a "crying sword" in a museum - it turned out the tears were coming from the ghost of its smith, who failed to save his best friend with it.

* 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.

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' episode "Allison From Palmdale" a particularly powerful moment comes when [[RobotGirl Cameron]] undergoes a breakdown while in the "Allison" persona, and actually starts crying. This is especially hard-hitting, because earlier terminator models like the T-800 ''can't'' shed tears.

Added DiffLines:

* Many of the miraculous images in Catholic shrines throughout the world have legends saying that they bled or wept. The legend of the image of the Madonna of the Arch in Sant'Anastasia, Naples, says that on Easter Monday of 1450, a man who had lost a game of pall-mall (a precursor of croquet) angrily hurled the ball at the sacred image, which began to bleed from her left cheek.
* There's a whole genre of late medieval anti-Semitic stories in which Jews would get their hands on the consecrated bread of the Eucharist and stab it with daggers, causing it to bleed.

Added DiffLines:

* A song from the group {{Music/Fiction Junction}}, 'Stone Cold' used as both Opening and Ending song for the anime series ''Anime/SacredSeven'' has lyrics pertaining to this: 'For the sake of a single teardrop/The pebble starts to crack/If I can protect one of your dreams/Then there is probably meaning in getting smashed into bits.' This carries [[DefrostingIceQueen significant meaning]] in the protagonist's [[CharacterDevelopment character development]].

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamAGE'', Kio's [=AGE-3=] Gundam emits a spray of lights from his eyes as he cries in the cockpit over the death of [[spoiler:Lu Anon]].
* Happens again in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans''. When [[spoiler:Biscuit Griffon]] is killed, Mika's Gundam Barbatos appears to have tears on its face--it's really water that's sprayed up from the ocean, as they're battling on the beach, but it's perfectly timed.

** In the Series 9 finale, Hell Bent, a Dalek trapped in what is essentially a Time Lord graveyard was shown with liquid coming out of the eyestalk as it begged for death. For context, Daleks are ScaryDogmaticAlien cyborg squids inside of mechanical battle suits whose real eyes are nowhere near the eyestalk.
