Whether it's for fitting into spaces normally too cramped, a less disturbing public image or just because they want to understand what it's like being a mortal, sometimes AIs or some vast cosmic entity will want to create a Physical Avatar, typically a human proportioned body that's either a Mini Mech or solid construct in most cases.

Examples Anime
  • Maps: The starships have all Physical Avatars in the form of attractive human females.

Live-Action TV
  • Andromeda: Andromeda has Romy, but all other Commonwealth capital ships have Physical Avatars for their AIs.
