* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' parody of ''Series/RobotWars'' in "I, (Annoyed Grunt)-Bot": After completely failing to build a battlebot, Homer covers himself in armour plating (a mailbox) and enters the arena himself with a hammer. He does pretty well, albeit with numerous horrible injuries, until he has to face a robot so huge it ends up squeezing him out of the suit.

* Played with in the ''Film/StarWars'' films:
** Though it's mentioned in ''Film/ANewHope'' that Darth Vader WasOnceAMan, he still comes across as a KillerRobot until the back of his head is seen, unhelmeted in his life-support chamber, in ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'', a moment that serves to humanize him, paving the way for the franchise's famous [[TheReveal reveal]].
** Similarly, in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', when Kylo Ren removes his mask to reveal that, unlike Vader, he's completely human, and seemingly only dresses like Vader [[DarthVaderClone for the sake of dressing like Vader]].
