'''Basic Trope''': A character thought to be a human is revealed to a robot.
* '''Straight''': While trying to attack Baroness Evilara, Bob accidentally knocks the arm off Alice, revealing her to a robot.
* '''Exaggerated''':
** While trying to attack Baroness Evilara, Bob accidentally kicks Alice's entire fission reactor out of her, tearing a gaping, jagged sparking metallic hole in her chest. Everybody realizes she was a robot in that instant.
** Everyone turns out to be robots.
* '''Downplayed''': Baroness Evilara is revealed to be a {{Cyborg}}.
* '''Justified''': Alice was a robot built by Evilara to replace the real deal.
* '''Inverted''': Both Bob and Evilara are robots; in fact most beings in this world are. Alice gets injured and...[[UnroboticReveal starts bleeding! She's NOT A ROBOT!!!]]
* '''Subverted''':
** Alice tells Bob that she's a robot as soon as the episode began.
** Alternatively: After it's revealed that Alice is a robot, the ''real'' Alice shows up. The robot was a fake.
** It turns out she's not a robot, she just has a cybernetic arm.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Alice tells Bob that she's a robot as soon as the episode began, but Alice is lying to lure Baroness Evilara out for a easy capture.
** Alternatively: Yes, there was a fake robotic Alice. But the only reason it was so convincing is because the ''real'' Alice is also a robot, and the fake was built from the same plans as Alice herself.
* '''Parodied''': When Alice loses an arm, she begins sparking and leaking liquid hydrogen, but none of the characters deduce that she's a robot.
* '''Zig Zagged''': But she replaced the robotics with a biological body later.
* '''Averted''':
** They are no robots in the series.
** Alternatively, Alice is a {{Fembot}}.
* '''Enforced''': "The fans are being way too critical of Alice's powers. We got something do before we get a BrokenBase! How about revealing that Alice is a robot?"
* '''Lampshaded''':
** "Bob, Alice stands for [[FunWithAcronyms Advanced Lifeform Information Collection Entity]]. Or in human terms, a robot."
** "Oh, ''this'' again. Big, tough meat-man goes into shock at the sight of sparks. Snap out of it and help me get to a mechanic!"
** "I can't believe that Alice turned out a robot, it sounds like something out of a cartoon series."
* '''Invoked''':
** "I am a robot programmed to act human-ish."
** Alice is tired of keeping it a secret from Bob, so she "accidentally" shows him some circuitry.
* '''Exploited''': While sparks fly from the stump of her robotic arm, Alice uses the shock and drama of the situation to sneak in a shot at Baroness Evilara.
* '''Defied''': Alice hears that Bob has an EMP weapon to disable Baroness Evilara's MechaMooks, realizes that it could blow her cover, and talks him into using "more practical" conventional weaponry.
* '''Discussed''':
** "Why do the robots always try to disguise themselves as humans, anyway? You know it's just going to come out at the worst possible moment."
** "Well, would you want everybody you meet asking if you dream about [[Literature/DoAndroidsDreamOfElectricSheep electric sheep]]? It's their business anyway."
* '''Conversed''': "In this episode of this old 1980s's cartoon, Alice turns to a robot programmed by Baroness Evilara to steal information from the good guys."
* '''Deconstructed''':
** Damage to Alice's hand reveals circuitry, causing Bob to think she's a robot. Later an injury shows she was human with ArtificialLimbs.
** The shock of the revelation, combined with the fact that she lied to him, would be enough to turn Bob away from Alice even if she ''was'' human. With her inhumanity added to the equation, it's even worse. Bob regards her as an inhuman monster, rather than a girl who used to be his friend.
* '''Reconstructed''':
** And then the rest of her was replaced with robotic parts.
** Upon finding out that Alice is a robot, Bob stands there, staring, silent, and Alice fears the worst... Until she notices that Bob is ''smiling''. "You're a robot? ''Sweet!''" "Uh, Bob? You can let go of me now..."
* '''Played For Laughs''':
** Alice is a blatantly mechanical [[TinMan Tin Woman]] on the far side of the UncannyValley whose efforts at imitating humans comprise a large chunk of the comedy. ''And nobody (least of all Bob) notices.''
** Nobody even notices Alice... Until she injures herself, revealing circuitry under her skin... At which point ''everyone''' crowds around excitedly, trying to get a look.
* '''Played For Drama''': Bob's horror at the revelation and his subsequent [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman repudation of their friendship]] would be bad enough if Alice was not already [[HeroicBSOD in shock]] [[TomatoInTheMirror over finding out herself]].
