* 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.

* 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.

** [[EndlessFrontier Aschen Brödel]], Lamia's predecessor, is this as much as Lamia but for different reasons. She is the one who served as a mother figure and actually raised Haken Browning. It was likely planned by Lemon Browning in case Haken would be lost.

* Robots are a somewhat common plot twist of the ''VideoGame/ProfessorLayton'' games. In Curious Village, [[spoiler: it is revealed that all of the residents of St. Mystere are robots designed by Bruno, friend of the late Baron Reinhold. They were built to watch over the baron's daughter, Flora, after she is orphaned, and to test potential guardians to see if they have the kindness and wisdom Baron Reinhold would want in someone who would raise his daughter. Layton and Luke are surprised to discover this fact - Luke more so than Layton, as Layton had deduced much of the truth on his own - since the robots are extremely humanlike.]] This trope also appears in Azran Legacy, [[spoiler: the Azran civilization, at its peak millions of years ago, had created robotic servants called golems to do their work for them. At first, the golems were obviously robots, but by the time the Azran create their ambassador, Aurora, to be discovered by future civilizations, she appears quite human, to the extent that no one could have guessed her true nature before she revealed it when she sacrificed herself for humanity.]]

* Kunzite from ''VideoGame/TalesOfHearts''... the first one Franchise/TalesSeries ever got. And that's not the only robot the game has to offer (but he's the only one playable).

* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' plays around this trope in several ways. The playable character is part of [=YoRHa=] androids, who are very much human in terms of outward appearances and emotional capabilities. The enemies are machine lifeforms, which clearly look like clunky humanoid robots but somehow able to mimic certain human emotions. [[spoiler:That's before getting into the fact that with humanity gone, both androids and machine lifeforms actually seek to become perfect humans in the long run.]]

* ''VideoGame/RodeaTheSkySoldier'' has the titular character and the other R-series robots are this. As people see that they're robots right away despte looking very human expect for having some [[HornedHumanoid horn]] like things does it seem like they're DeceptivelyHumanRobots InUniverse.

* The androids in the adventure game ''ZeroZone''. One of the puzzles requires seducing one of the robots (yes, there is a [[{{Squick}} sex scene]]). The ultimate goal of the game is to [[spoiler: broadcast a song that sends the titular (and female, natch) Zero Zones in heat, explicitly [[RapeIsLove sending them on a rape rampage]], getting pregnant, and thus helping human/robot relationships thanks to the newborns. No, it's not hentai. [[AcceptableTargets But it is French, if you're asking]].]]

* A large portion of the plot of ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' revolves around KOS-MOS's strangely human behaviour. This is justified, however, as (warning: major series spoiler) [[spoiler: she is actually a vessel for the reincarnated spirit of Mary Magdelene, as was intended by Kevin.]].

* Robin Good in ''VideoGame/BlackMarket.''



* ''StarshipTitanic'': Nicely avoided, several of the robots look distinctly Art Deco, others look like furniture.
** However due to their uploaded brains they act fairly human.



* In ''VideoGame/{{Z}}'', ''everyone'' is this.

* The MechaMooks in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', the R.O.B. Squad. They're very clearly distressed when [[spoiler:they and their comrades are torn apart by a Subspace Bomb.]] It's quite TearJerker-y. It also leads to MoralDissonance sometimes.
** Averted where you would expect it most in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros 4'': VideoGame/MegaManClassic intentionally has [[UncannyValley stiffer movement and less visible expression]] than the organic characters (and R.O.B. himself, even).

* ''VideoGame/PinkPantherPassportToPeril'': In the climax of the game, Pink Panther discovers that The Dogfather has abducted the real children and Von Schmarty, and replaced them with robotic doubles that looked and acted so much like real humans they effectively fooled everyone. At least until they start shorting out and falling apart.
