* In ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'', the Exos are intelligent humanoid robots with all of the mental characteristics of humans, complete with the ability to eat and drink and feel hatred, anger, fear, boredom, and love. Later on, they are outright confirmed to be [[BrainUploading uploaded human minds]]. This also raises a question for many Exos: they are fully aware that their original purpose was to be war machines made to fight for Golden Age humanity, so why were they created with the capacity to feel emotions and have desires and needs that would not provide any use on the battlefield? Many of the Exos grapple with these questions, [[LossOfIdentity as well as trying to remember who and what they were before they were built or uploaded, as many cannot remember their past lives.]]

* ''VideoGame/SurvivingMars'' has biorobots which can be researched with a breakthrough technology, and then produced in Drone Assemblers. Aside from neither dying of age nor reproducing, they function as humans.

* Poppi from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' in all her forms (in spite of [[ThirdPersonPerson her Noponic dialect]]). Granted, aesthetically speaking, her initial [[http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-32/art/xc2-poppi-alpha.jpg 'α' mode]] is a TinCanRobot, but she seems to be just as capable of feeling as a normal human. She has preferred foods and drinks (while she can't actually ingest them, she enjoys the way they smell), and she was the only party member to use tenderness when [[spoiler:Rex was on the verge of giving up hope after Pyra got abducted by Torna]]; Nia and Brighid were more [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan forceful]] in their approaches. As well as this, [[spoiler:the optional late-game [[https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/xenoblade/images/0/07/Poppi_QT_Pi.png/revision/latest?cb=20171214030318 'QTπ' upgrade,]] outside of a few visible joints on her thighs and shoulders, looks perfectly human.]]

* The ''VideoGame/MegaManX'' series slips ever-closer to this trope's existence with every installment, deliberately. This is in direct contrast to the true, pure robots of [[VideoGame/MegaMan the original series]]. It's implied that even Mega Man himself was not truly capable of pure free will [[spoiler:(except in the English version of 7, where he almost [[WhyDontYouJustShootHim kills Wily over his specific objections that doing so would violate the first law of robotics. He doesn't care]]. In the Japanese version, Mega Man obediently lowers his Arm Cannon when Wily pointed this out)]]. As reploids are ''designed'' to be as human-like, or at least as life-like, as possible, it makes sense for further advancements to make reploids more resemble and function like synthetic versions of humans and animals. Interestingly, X and Zero themselves, despite being the models from which all reploids originate ''and'' the series' primary protagonists, are still essentially more mechanical than human. By the time of ''VideoGame/MegaManZX'', the trope starts to go the other way as well, and the line gets so blurred that Humans and Reploids stop making distinctions between each other, so that when ''VideoGame/MegaManLegends'' rolls around, they've forgotten that there ''is'' a distinction.

* [=GlaDOS=] from ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' is a perfectly clinical android that also has a personality and even has multiple cores to define its elements. These include such things as "Anger", which definitely makes little sense. Then again, as this is the ''same'' company that came up with such brilliant ideas as the "Heimlich Counter-Maneuver" and the "Take-A-Wish Foundation", it's obvious that they're not terribly practical people; and given that it's suggested [=GLaDOS=] was developed as an attempt to develop a fuel line de-icing system that somehow ended up also being "a fully functional disc-operating system" and "arguably alive", they apparently didn't know when to stop adding on additional features. She also has an obsession with cake.

* The newer ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' games have given Dr. Eggman two robot sidekicks named Orbot and Cubot, who, unlike most of his creations, are fully sapient and capable of emotion. [[RobotMe Metal Sonic]] himself was originally just a robotic copy of Sonic that started to develop its own sense of self, complete with personality, desires and feelings. Unfortunately for everyone involved, Metal developed these due to his neverending losses to Sonic which drove him ''[[RoboticPsychopath insane]]'' and desired to do whatever it took to beat Sonic.
