* The title character of ''WesternAnimation/WhateverHappenedToRobotJones'' is often portrayed this way. He is attracted to a human girl named Shannon, he is seen consuming an slush with his friends in "Hookie 101", and in "Family Vacation", his need for an oil change is treated like having a PottyEmergency.

** During Bayformers, the humanisation of Transformers reached its horrible peak, finally making fans raise questions like [[http://www.toplessrobot.com/2009/06/bonus_robs_transformers_2_faqs.php?page=2 "Why would a robot need to fart, pee, or vomit? And why would it need testicles?"]]

* Elsewhere in the DCA, the android duplicate of Batman in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAinmatedSeries'' episode "His Silicon Soul" was created by H.A.R.D.A.C. as its all-purpose contingency plan, to [[KillAndReplace take Batman's place]] and download the last remnants of H.A.R.D.A.C. into the Batcave's computers, reviving the villain. But H.A.R.D.A.C.'s mistake, which led to its final defeat, was making the android ''too'' human. With [[GoneHorriblyRight Batman's moral and ethics built in]], it [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone couldn't handle the guilt of thinking it had killed someone]], and [[DrivenToSuicide self-terminated]], [[NiceJobFixingItVillain destroying the threat of H.A.R.D.A.C. forever.]]

* Zeta from ''WesternAnimation/TheZetaProject'' certainly qualifies. A soft spoken, innocent, and trusting naive robot who doesn't want to hurt anyone and can't resist helping people, he's not only more emotional than most humans on the show, but he's also a better person than most of them. The amazing thing is, he was supposed to be a mindless killing machine, not an Actual Pacifist with a heart of gold, meaning Zeta is one of few examples on this list to be here by accident.
** Which makes Zeta the most ridiculous example on this list. Though his appearance has an in-canon explanation, his full range of emotions, human-like body language and expressions don't make sense once you realize he's not supposed to have them. At least everybody else on this list was programmed/designed deliberately to be Ridiculously Human.
*** Zeta's creator didn't want to be building weapons systems, and included Zeta's conscience in an attempt to subvert his original purpose - "Selig never had the heart for creating a weapon, so he secretly created a module in Zeta without the NSA's knowledge that acted as a conscience, hoping that Zeta would evolve as a person."
*** Zeta also had to be able to mimic humans enough to infiltrate them for long periods of time - It's stated that he once killed a man, and then posed as him for several months. (Including to his family, and ''wife''.)

* The ''GiantRobo'' ''Ginrei Special'' appears to follow this when the titular giant robot gets a ''Nosebleed'' after seeing a scantily-clad woman. But subverted when it turns out to be strategically-ejected gasoline.

** It is possible Jenny was designed to be human, because her predecessor Armmagedroid had no capacity for independent/human thought, following his orders without question (to destroy all enemy weapons), even attacking his allies/creator to do so. [[spoiler: Jenny exploits this weakness in their second encounter and convinces him to self-terminate by using logic to prove he "is a weapon and must be destroyed"]]
