- An important part of the backstory of Cave Story involves a war, in which an army that was sent to exterminate the Mimiga creatures living on a remote island. Though it's not immediately obvious, the player character is one such robot. Initially, he meets several NPC's who wonder if he's "a soldier from the surface". Then Professor Booster clarifies that he is a robot soldier. Shortly after, you meet Curly Brace, another robot and a veteran of the same war as him.
- In LBX/Danball Senki: While the Innovators use LBX robots, the Black Intelligence Division and the Red Military Division train their soldiers to use LBX efficientalally to the point where they can stage numerous terrorist attempts, seige an assualt at the end of Artemis, and engage in a huge LBX war between them and the Seekers during the attempted siege on Tiny Orbit.
- Fallout has had two robot armies so far. The robot armies controlled by the Calculator in Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, and the Synths controlled by the Institute in Fallout 4.
- Mega Man X: Some Reploids of the verse end up betraying humanity and became destructive for one reason or another, called "going Maverick". In response to that, Doctor Cain formed the Maverick Hunters, an organization filled with robot soldiers to fight these Mavericks. They're put into distinct units such as "Marine Unit" or "Arctic Unit" to cover activities in different areas.
- Overwatch takes place after a massive war between Humanity and their Omnic creations.
- Ratchet & Clank always features hordes of robot soldiers. While there are usually organic fighters in there as well, they will be vastly outnumbered by robots on both sides of the conflict. A notable case of this is the Galactic Rangers in the third game.
- In Stellaris, with enough research, robotic armies and android armies can be built for either planetary defense or invasion.
- Team Fortress 2 has Mann Vs. Machine mode, which pits six players against hordes of their robotic counterparts. The robots are more or less the equals of the base players, but are disposable and expected to die in droves anyway because their AI is pretty bad and the human players have tons of purchasable powerups. There's also a slightly-too-literal example in the Robot Soldier, which, thanks to using the Soldier's existing voice lines, comes across as a giant Cloud Cuckoolander Robotic Psychopath.
- The titular Transformers are autonomous robot soldiers fighting an ongoing war against their Always Chaotic Evil counterparts.
- In Samurai Jack, the overwhelming majority of Aku's military forces consist of expendable war robots. The most common of them are the insect-like Beetle Drones. Some of Aku's mercenaries and bounty hunters are more humanoid variants, including the morally conflicted assassin X-9.
