Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim'': Zim creates a robot called a "Hunter-Destroyer" (which has a name and appearance incredibly similar to a "Hunter-Killer" robot from the ''Terminator'' franchise) to go back in time and and kill Dib before he can become Zim's enemy. However, in addition to the TemporalParadox this would create, the robot proves incompatible with TimeTravel anyway, so the scheme never gets off the ground.

Added DiffLines:

* The very first MonsterOfTheWeek in ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' was the X-Terminator, who was blatantly a Terminator pastiche, right down to his last line of dialogue in his debut being "I'll be back".

Added DiffLines:

* The ''WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine'' episode, "First Day On Sodor!" features an ImagineSpot from the Sodor Construction Company where Miss Jenny Packard unveils The Roadinator, a ''Terminator''-esque road-paving machine.
-->'''Roadinator''': I am the Roadinator. Come with me if you want to pave!


* In ''Series/{{Futurama}}'' when Bender goes back in time to kill Fry,he verifies(using various verbs) what he needs to do, notably avoiding using the word "terminate." Which his masters do anyway. Once in the past he scans the phonebook for Philip Fry (much like the Terminator and Sarah Connor). He also dons a pair of CoolShades before disappearing into the time vortex, insisting "It's really bright in the past."

** Generation 1 and 2 Synths are mechanical robots that look eerily humanoid and are often sent as canon-fodder for executing simple tasks for the Institute. Their abilities and intelligence relatively limited, however, which means they [[ZergRush must rely on sheer numbers to defeat seasoned Wastelanders]].

* [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Metal Sonic]] is a robot made in mockery of its enemy who keeps coming back no matter how often it's destroyed. Taken even further in ''Videogame/SonicHeroes'', where he's now made of liquid metal and can shape-shift.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'': In "The Enforcer", Hera's minion the Enforcer arrives naked, kills a man for his clothes, is emotionless and implacable with her mission to kill Hercules, and her body can reform out of water. Her dialogue is peppered with Terminator references. In the sequel episode "Not Fade Away", the Enforcer is resurrected to help Hercules stop a second Enforcer, gradually becomes more human in personality, and eventually sacrifices herself, mirroring ''Terminator 2: Judgment Day''.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{VideoGame/Iconoclasts}} has the Agents, elite super-soldiers of the One Concern. Although they all have their own distinct skills and personalities, they all share two features: mechanical prosthetics, and being downright impossible to kill, [[spoiler:at least with conventional methods]]. Specifically, Agent White is a pretty humorless man of few words with glowing bionic eyes whose boss fight consists mostly of running away from him, and Agent Black is a ruthless pursuer that's obsessed with killing the protagonist and her family.


** Wolverine has a few moments, due to having a metal skeleton, muscular build and healing factor, artists can come up with images like [[https://superteamau.files.wordpress.com/2014/11/wolverine_skeleton_spideyverse.jpg this.]]


* ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'': One of the contestants in the festival tournament is tall and muscular, with sunglasses and a leather jacket.

Added DiffLines:

* The original ''Anime/BubblegumCrisis'' had boomers with human skin and super strength. When they accumulate enough damage, they reveal themselves to be robot skeletons with synthetic muscles.
** The 2040 remake had their own version of [=SkyNet=] in the form of Galatea.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/PokemonDetectivePikachu'': The villain's Pokemon henchman [[spoiler: Ditto is similar to the T-1000 in that it's an amorphous being that impersonates humans. Similar to the T-800 from the first Terminator movie, it wears sunglasses at all times to conceal its unhuman eyes.]]

Added DiffLines:

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* The third series of ''Series/StrangerThings'' has a Russian mercenary with an imposing build and a deep voice. Hopper manages to fire several rounds into his chest that he shrugs off (due to wearing a kevlar vest) and [[spoiler: he's killed in an industrial site towards the end of the series]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'': Barry Dylan gets seriously injured at one point and is rebuilt as a cyborg. Driven mad from the operation, he begins stalking Archer and attacking anyone close to him. After getting blown up, he returns as a skelebot with red eyes [[spoiler: and survives getting hit by a truck]].


* When ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' reviewed ''VideoGame/{{Pepsiman}}''. Pepsiman was portrayed as a parody of the T-1000. The Need ended up killing him by pushing him into a vat of Coca Cola mixed with Fanta.
