* Shown and lampshaded in issue 4 of ''ComicBook/FallOutToyWorks'' with Tiffany having a cooldown smoke after an argument with Baron.
** In the same issue, Mr Moth gets 3000 channels and apparently makes the most of them, what with comparing Toymaker's HeroicBSOD with George Foreman after his match with Mohammed Ali.
** Another lampshading in issue 4, when Tiffany finds one of Baron's MechaMooks tending to flowers.

* SHIELD's Life Model Decoys in the Franchise/MarvelUniverse are meant to be completely indistinguishable from the people for whom they are body-doubles.
* Doombots, programmed to act like the real Doctor Doom in his absence. Arguably, it's not very difficult to achieve perfect resemblance to the real thing when the template himself dresses like a robot with a hood and cape...

* DC's ComicBook/RedTornado, who assumed the identity of John Smith, married a human woman and adopted a child with her.

* DC's ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'': Peter's parents, Richard and Mary Fitzpatrick-Parker, claimed to not have been killed in an airplane crash, and ended up staying with Peter for a while. It turned out they were robot impostors.

* ''NYC Mech'' is set in an alternate universe where everything is exactly the same as in our world, except everyone's a robot. While these robots have hair, they don't appear very human outwardly, with visible hinges and wires, but they eat, sleep, smoke, have sex, age, etc. That the characters are robots is so immaterial to the plot, one suspects that element was added at the last minute to give the series a unique hook.



* Every droid created in the XXIII century in ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures looks and feels exactly as a human. Despite that they are just treated as tools. This is later deconstructed when a WellIntentionedExtremist droid tries to change history to make droids equal to humans. Later,with the "Droids Chart",they finally obtain rights.
* The Robots in ComicBook/{{Saga}} are without a doubt one of the most ridiculous examples in fiction history. If not for their [[TVHeadRobot TV heads]], it would be impossible to identify them as robots - not only are they fully sentient and sapient, but they can even [[UpToEleven have sex, bear children, contract diseases, use the bathroom...]]
* Subverted in ''ComicBook/TheUmbrellaAcademy''. Mrs. Hargreeves has a human face but a transparent body and obviously artificial limbs. However it appears she also has a full system of working organs, [[{{Squick}} which can be seen through her transparent body]].

** Superman, during UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Book}}, used to build several robots to assist him. They usually looked so much like himself that it was impossible to tell them apart (which often was the point). The ones he built ComicBook/PostCrisis were much less lifelike, but still resembled him, except for Kelex who looked quite different.

* Both versions of ComicBook/TheVision from ''Comicbook/TheAvengers'': the original was married to the ScarletWitch; the new one spent a year traveling around the world finding himself, likes to be called Jonas in private, and is now dating [[ComicBook/YoungAvengers Stature]].
