->'''Bill''': Wow! Evil robot "us"es!\\
'''Ted''': Excellent!
-->-- ''Film/BillAndTedsBogusJourney''

A robotic version of an existing character. May have vastly different abilities and personality, especially if it's developed as an EvilKnockoff. Sometimes, this robot may simply be a [[ReplacementGoldfish stand-in for the original]] with a justification either sinister or mundane. The key point of this trope is for there to be interaction between the original and the robot, even if it is simply the original having knowledge of the robot's existence. If this is a {{retcon}} it's ActuallyADoombot.

[[folder:Literature]]
* In the Creator/RayBradbury short story ''Marionettes, Inc.'', a man acquires a RobotMe to stand in for him at home while he goes away. (A very sophisticated robot that eventually develops sentience, but still one that, if you place your head to the chest, you can hear a clock ticking instead of a heart beating.) However, the robot decides that he likes the original man's life and doesn't want to be stored away in a box in the basement. The solution? He betrays his owner by locking HIM in the box forever while he (the robot) lives the life of the owner, his family completely unaware of the switch.
* ''Franchise/StarWars'': Leia Organa II
* Beth Kittridge's simulacrum from ''TekWar.'' [[spoiler: The robot gets destroyed, but [[DoppelgangerReplacementLoveInterest Jake meets the real Beth not long after.]] True, the robot only cared about protecting Beth's life, but even so... [[CloningBlues poor, poor l'il robot.]]]]
* ''TheAdventuresOfElectronic'' by Russian author E. Veltistov have a robot built after a real boy. The robot escapes and meets said boy, who is very happy to have his RobotMe go to school instead of him and then...
** The novel has spawned several sequels, one of which points out that, since a year has passed, the boy now looks older than Electronic. Then again, everybody is aware of Electronic, so nobody would confuse the two. Then there's the plug that's attached to Electronic to charge him.
* In ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'', R. Daneel Olivaw is a robot built to look exactly like his creator. Elijah Baley makes a joke that he was "[[Literature/TheBible made in his maker's image]]", but it's lost on the robot. It turns out this was a key point upon which the plot turned... [[spoiler: How could a man psychologically incapable of killing a human kill a human? By thinking he's destroying the robot duplicate instead]].
* Creator/IsaacAsimov's story ''Evidence'' (the second last in the ''I, Robot'' collection), is about a man being suspected of being a robot created after the real man was crippled in a traffic collision.
* A Creator/SpiderRobinson short story about a company that rents sexbots makes one to represent the secretary who takes people's orders (because she ends up being the most popular request). She's rather upset about this and steals it. Then [[ScrewYourself the inevitable happens]].
* In ''Literature/CaptainUnderpants and the Wrath of the Wicked Wedgie Woman'', the titular antagonist builds evil robot versions of George and Harold: Robo-George and Harold 2000.
* Alfred Slote's ''My Robot Buddy'' series involves a kid named Jack who is given a RobotBuddy, Danny, as a present; at his request, Danny is made to look exactly like him. Much use is made of this throughout the series.
* Creator/RobertSheckley has a collection of short stories entitled, ''The Robot Who Looked Like Me.'' The titular story is about a man who doesn't have enough time, and creates a robot to do some of his menial tasks for him.
* ''Literature/HowToBeASuperhero'' warns the reader to make sure his robot duplicate look and behave exactly like him, except for ''[[NoSexAllowed one]]'' thing...
-->'''Girlfriend:''' "God, you were ''fabulous'' last night!"\\
'''Superhero:''' "What? IN BED?"\\
'''Girlfriend:''' "[[SexGod In bed... on the floor in front of the fire... in the bathtub... on the stairs... on top of the breakfast bar... behind the couch... in the attic... on the porch... in the rocking chair... inside the closet... under the bed... what a night! Whooo!]]"
* There's a doppelganger in ''Literature/ToughMagic'', a golem built of [[{{Magitek}} magitek]], and programed to duplicate the main character's abilities and skills.
* In ''Literature/{{MARZENA}}'' we have Geni (General Intelligence) who is a digital clone of Marian created by Merging Minds with a BlankSlate. It's all still in [[PerpetualBeta Beta Stage]] of course, although digital clones are such a time saver you won't possibly be able to keep yourself from using them.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* In the ''Series/BuckRogersInTheTwentyFifthCentury'' episode "Ardala Returns", the villains create an android version of Buck.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'': Buffybot(s). Specifically, it differed from the original in terms of being [[SexBot obsessed]] with [[FoeYay Spike]] when it didn't go out on patrol, or even when it did. When it was reprogrammed it was closer to the way Buffy was, except that to call it a {{Cloudcuckoolander}} would be an understatement.
* Unsurprisingly for such a long-lived show, ''Series/DoctorWho'' has done this more than once: there's the robot First Doctor created by the Daleks in "The Chase" as well as the android replicas of the Fourth Doctor and Sarah Jane in "The Android Invasion".
* An episode of ''Series/TheFreshBeatBand'' has the band ordering robots of themselves to assist in picking berries. Because the show is for younger viewers AIIsACrapshoot is averted, but the robots are ironically quite incompetent.
* ''Series/TheMrPotatoHeadShow'': Mr. Potato Head was under a lot of stress and needed a vacation, so Dr. Fruitcake made a robotic version of Mr. Potato Head to stand in for him while he was away...who was friendly and didn't have any of [[IdiotBall Mr.]] [[JerkWithAHeartOfJerk Potato]] [[JerkassBall Head's]] flaws. He was so liked by the rest of the cast, that when the real Mr. Potato Head found out about the robot, he didn't want to come back to the show and became depressed.
* A robot Kermit (with a wind-up key in his back) took over hosting duties in one episode of ''Series/TheMuppetShow''.
* Having accidentally killed Will Radcliffe with a copy of the ''Complete Works of Shakespeare'', ''Series/NightAndDay'''s Kate Ellis "hired a number of electrical engineers, and, with the latest nanotachnology and a lot of hard work", created a robotic replica - which looked uncannily like the human Will, covered in silver spraypaint. Naturally, Will's daughter Frankie is thrilled to have her dad back, particularly when he declares her 'the boss'.
* Robot Rangers in both ''Series/PowerRangersTurbo'' and ''Series/PowerRangersLightspeedRescue''. The former were RidiculouslyHumanRobots built by the originals to help protect an alien planet; the latter were [[RemoteBody mindless remote-controlled drones]] (with no "civilian forms" to make them seem more human) that... well, AIIsACrapshoot.
** Don't forget Cyber Cam from ''Series/PowerRangersNinjaStorm''.
* ''Franchise/StarTrek'':
** Android Kirk in the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"
** Data, Lore, and presumably all the other previous prototypes in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' are exact (if Palette Swapped) duplicates of their creator, Dr. Soong (also played by Brent Spiner, the actor who portrays Data, et al).
** Soong later created a much more human-looking ReplacementGoldfish modeled after [[spoiler: his deceased wife Juliana]].
** When Data creates a "daughter" named Lal and allows her to choose her gender and appearance, she briefly considers taking on Counselor Troi's before [[AvertedTrope Data tells her that it would be very confusing]].
** Not technically a robot, but still an artificial intelligence: the Emergency Medical Holographic program (EMH) of ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' is modeled after creator Dr. Lewis Zimmerman.
** In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'', Dr. Zimmerman considers modeling his prototype Long-Term Medical Hologram's appearance and personality after Dr. Julian Bashir, who has a better bedside manner than Zimmerman.
* ''Series/StargateSG1''
** Robo SG-1
** And Repli-Carter

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Mario Kart Arcade GP 1 and 2 has Robo Mario, who has a black version and silver version. His emblem on his hat shows E.Gadd's symbol, implying that E.Gadd created this robotic being. He is fought in a challenge on Rainbow Coaster in Rainbow Cup.
* [[VideoGame/{{Nasuverse}} Mech Hisui]].
* The ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' series has had many examples appear over the years, including:
** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'''s Silver Sonic, the original robot Sonic who served as the penultimate boss battle in the Death Egg.
** Metal Sonic, introduced in ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehogCD'', is the only example that actually served as the BigBad for a game, with his nearly successful attempt at taking over the world in ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes''.
** ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'''s Mecha Sonic, Silver Sonic's upgraded model who can harness the power of the Master Emerald to go [[SuperMode "Super"]].
** The Eggrobos, introduced in ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'', who are built in the likeness of Dr. Eggman's classic appearance.
** ''VideoGame/SonicR'''s Tails Doll and Metal Knuckles, built in the image of Tails and Knuckles, respectively.
** ''VideoGame/SonicAdvance'''s Mecha Knuckles, who ([[TurnsRed initially]]) bore a closer resemblance to Knuckles than the above-mentioned Metal Knuckles.
** ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'''s Shadow Androids. They bare such a close resemblance to the original, that Shadow initially believes Eggman when he claims that Shadow is one of them.[[note]]Eggman eventually admits that he was lying and that Shadow is the real thing.[[/note]]
** ''VideoGame/SonicRivals 2'''s Metal Sonic 3.0, Dr. Eggman Nega's version with a color scheme reminiscent to that of [[VideoGame/SonicAdvanceTrilogy Gemerl]].
** ''VideoGame/SonicChronicles'''s Egg Bot, who, unlike the Eggrobos, is based on Dr. Eggman's contemporary appearance.
** ''VideoGame/SonicColors''' Virtual Hedgehogs, the playable characters in the Wii version's Sonic Simulator mode. They made a reappearance in ''VideoGame/SonicLostWorld'' albeit with different designs.
* The robot Invaders that assist Earth's Final Weapon in ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders Get Even''.
* Miharu and robot Miharu in ''VideoGame/DaCapo''. Miharu knew about her robo version but they never really interacted because the second Miharu only came out when she was in a coma. The personalities were almost exactly, but not quite, the same. Robo Miharu is also apparently somewhat less intelligent due to limitations on the design nor does she possess any superior strength or abilities.
* Axel has an evil robot knockoff as a boss fight in ''VideoGame/StreetsOfRage 3''. The robot has the exact same appearance as Axel, except for the color of the gloves. The robot clone has all of Axel's techniques, and it can do them a ''lot'' faster than Axel can.
* The Mini-Mario toys from ''VideoGame/MarioVsDonkeyKong'' are a RedShirtArmy of these.
* ''VideoGame/MetroidZeroMission'' introduces the aptly-named Ridley Robot, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin robotic version of Ridley]], built by him. Given that it's incomplete (its leg and wing units are yet to be installed, meaning it has to drag itself along the ground to move), and ''still'' serves as the FinalBoss of that game, it's chilling to think of how devastating it could've been if it had been finished before Samus blew it up.
* ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' has [[ManVersusMachine Mann vs. Machine]], which is focused around fighting an entire army of these.
* ''VideoGame/NarutoShippudenUltimateNinjaStormRevolution''. {{Anime/Naruto}}? Meet [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReKxw2e8Nyg Mecha Naruto]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}'': A GagDub from [[CatGirl Ms. Fortune]]'s voice actor has lead to the MemeticMutation of Robo-Fortune, which then became an AscendedMeme. Robo-Fortune is set to join the cast as a playable character within the next few months.
* ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'':
** In ''Banjo-Tooie'', Mingy Jongo is this to Mumbo Jumbo.
** In the [[{{Interquel}} midquel]], ''Grunty's Revenge'', Klungo builds a Mecha Grunty suit for Grunty's spirit to escape into when Grunty was trapped under the boulder at the end of the original game. When the suit gets destroyed at the end of the game, Grunty's spirit goes back below the boulder to wait until Mingella and Blobbelda can get her out.
* Robot duplicates in the ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptunia'' series are mainly [[Main/OneShotCharacter one-shot characters]] with no other purpose other than for gags, most of them are a result of Nepgear's obsession with her sister and machines being amplified in the spin-offs.
** In one of Neptune's scenes in ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaProducingPerfection'', the player wakes up and sees an android Neptune, which looks exactly like Neptune albeit only has one of Neptune's unique expressions for her face and speaks in a robotic manner, practicing dance steps while counting in French, while making mechanical noises. The player applauds the robot, mistaking it for the real Neptune despite noticing how different she acts. Nepgear later appears to take the robot to play with her. Later, the real Neptune shows up to greet the player and after a little bit of clarification, both of them decided to spy on Nepgear. It turns out, Nepgear was very lonely since Neptune always spend time with the player for her idol career that she built a robot Neptune that follows her orders while disillusioning herself that the robot is the real one. Neptune tries to fight the impostor but was [[Main/CurbStompBattle quickly defeated in one blow]]. Nepgear only realizes the truth after the bruised Neptune crawls to her with the robot asking her for instructions at the same time. Neptune reassures Nepgear that she spend more time with her and then the robot, now called "Robo-Nep", was reprogrammed to be Neptune's rival in video games.
** Neptune's lily rank 6 conversation with Nepgear in ''VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaUActionUnleashed'' has her greeting Nepgear before noticing a robot look-alike of her being tinkered by Nepgear, which she names as the "Stay-home Neptune Robot", which sits on her window sill.
** In ''VideoGame/CyberdimensionNeptunia4GoddessesOnline'', Nepgear keeps begging [[Main/ArtificialIntelligence Bouquet]] to show her a bit of her code. Neptune arrives and asks Nepgear on why is she begging for Bouquet for her A.I.'s code. Nepgear replies that it's for her Neptune robot, which Neptune immediately rejects.
** In ''[[VideoGame/HyperdimensionNeptuniaVictory Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory Re;Birth3 V Generation]]'', a cutscene with MAGES. that isn't on the original game has Rom and Ram being intrigued with MAGES.' inventions. When they asked if she has a robot, MAGES. proudly presented her Nepgear robot, named "Docking Sister", which she built at Vert's request. However, she states that it was returned to her after the robot was reported to have a serious defect. When the twins ask what the robot's problem is, MAGES. answered by turning on the robot. The robot turns on and immediately malfunctions by making a "Nepgya" face while repeatedly saying "NEPUGIA!!" which bothered the twins. After turning off the robot, she says that she's willing to give away the robot for free, which they denied.
*** It's possible that the robot reappeared in ''VideoGame/MegadimensionNeptuniaVII'' as the DLC character "Nepgya" as one of her idle quotes mention of her ability to possess and her [[Main/BackStory backstory]] in the 4-koma has shown her to be a spirit that is once part of Nepgear before being turned as a real character by a poll. It could possibly mean that she possessed the robot and took control of it, which would explain on how she was able to fight and interact.
* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear'' has Robo Ky, an attempt to recreate [[KnightInShiningArmor Ky Kiske]], however... it's an utter failure, as far as personality goes, in combat however, he's very good at it.
** Which led to the creation in Videogame/{{Mugen}} of several Robo- knock offs, the most populars are Robo Jam, Robo Sol, and [[TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers Robo]] [[VideoGame/FatalFury Rock Howard]]
* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidPeaceWalker'' features an [[InvertedTrope inverted]] example, Gear Rex is an organic dinosaur version of [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid Metal Gear REX]].
* ''VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}}'' features KOS-MOS who has two other characters similar to her but they both [[InvertedTrope inverts]] it, T-elos [[spoiler: who has Mary Magdelene's original body]] and [[VideoGame/XenobladeChroniclesX Elma]] [[spoiler: who is an organic [[SpaceElves alien]] version of her.]]
* Nega-Toby from the ''VideoGame/{{Battleborn}}'' DLC "Toby's Friendship Raid" is a robot copy of Toby that Thaddeus sent to deal with the penguin and the Rogues.
* ''VideoGame/{{ARMS}}'' has Springtron, a robot version of Spring Man designed by the shadowy ARMS Institute to be the perfect merciless fighting machine. Springtron is apparently an accurate enough robot copy of Spring Man that the two share the same unlocked ARMS inventory, something unique to the two of them.

* Mecha Mario, of the Flash series ''WebAnimation/SuperMarioBrosZ''. Made by none other than Robotnik. There's also the BigBad of the same series: Mecha Sonic.
* Twilight Sparkle builds the [=RDash-5000=] in the ''WebAnimation/PonyDotMov'' series because if they can't have the real one, building one is the next best thing. It ''immediately'' [[CrushKillDestroy goes rogue]] and over the course of two more episodes somehow multiplies thousands of times over.

* In the ''WebAnimation/BarbieLifeInTheDreamhouse'' three-parter "Send in the Clones", Ken creates a robot clone of Barbie, in hopes that she can help Barbie complete her work more quickly. Unfortunately, her ArtificialIntelligence motivates her to try and ''replace'' Barbie. [[FromBadToWorse Even worse,]] [[spoiler:the tennis-playing robot accidentally breaks a control on the cloning machine, unleashing a slew of mindless Barbie robots on Malibu.]]

* [[InvertedTrope Inverted]] in ''WesternAnimation/BeastWars'', where Megatron creates a fully organic copy of Dinobot's beast mode to infiltrate the Maximals' ship. [[spoiler:The real Dinobots ends up ''[[SapientEatSapient eating]]'' [[KillingYourAlternateSelf his duplicate]].]]
* An unintentional case in ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'', where Legion Ex Machina creates a duplicate of the Big Guy. What they (and almost everybody else) don't realize is that the real Big Guy is just a guy in PoweredArmor, as they could never get the AI to work. The Legion is surprised when the Big Guy's maintenance team starts banging on his back, asking for the pilot to get out.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCattanoogaCats'': In the ''It's the Wolf'' short "Smart Dummy", Mildew Wolf built a robotic duplicate of himself to distract Bristle Hound so he [the real Mildew] could pursue Lambsy at his leisure.
* In ''[[WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy Billy & Mandy's Big Boogey Adventure]]'', Boogey's [[TheDragon Dragon]] Mr. Creeper invents two robots of Billy and Mandy that he sends back in time at the beginning of the movie to make sure the real duo do not get the ArtifactOfDoom. Their voices are so heavily vocoded that every time they speak is accompanied by subtitles.
* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Catscratch}},'' The cats build robot versions of themselves to help around the house. [[AIIsACrapshoot It backfires.]]
* The British government once gave WesternAnimation/DangerMouse and Penfold robot doppelgangers to help with their workload. The robots [[SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence were mindlessly stupid]], and [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity Ensued.]] In another episode, one of Dangermouse's enemies covertly replaced Penfold with a robot double who was braver and more confident. The downside was that at the villain's command, the robot would transform into a HumongousMecha form and follow its true programming....destroy Dangermouse.
* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/JimmyTwoShoes'' had Heloise build a DoAnythingRobot double to be her lab assistant. Jimmy falls in love with it, completely missing its similarity to Heloise.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''
** The Phinedroids and Ferbots from the episode "I, Brobot".
