* The Mechanical Turk was an automaton made in 18th century France, that was widely touted to be able to beat any human at TabletopGame/{{chess}}. Of course, people later found out that it was completely unable to function without a human chess master hiding inside and manipulating the arms. Meanwhile, it was inspiring Creator/CharlesBabbage and UsefulNotes/AlanTuring to come up with theorems about universal computing machines, which in turn inspired the first computer programs that ''could'' beat the best humans at chess.

* This is the twist in one of the ''[=DOLLS=]'' manga stories. A woman abuses her "Doll" horribly throughout the story, and flips out when said "Doll" develops an interest in a young man. The "Doll" finally has enough and shows the woman the blood from the injuries inflicted by her and forces her to face reality -- she is the woman's totally human ''daughter''. The woman had been [[RapeAsBackstory gangraped in her youth]] and the "Doll" was the result of that. The woman imagined that she had aborted her baby and replaced her with a Doll in an attempt to cope with her trauma.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' parody of ''Series/RobotWars'': 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.
