Actor William Daniels voiced the character, which co starred alongside David Hasselhoff, currently of hotel floor with a cheeseburger fame.Nathan Spicer.
3 . The Tachikomas Ghost in the Shell
Created 1989,Creator Masamune Shirow The Tachikomas were the sentient think tanks from the Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex anime series. Though they could be piloted as a type of ride armor, the Tachikomas possessed artificial intelligence and could act on their own. Their childish voices and mannerisms posed a stark juxtaposition to the acts of war they commonly carried out. A sub plot of the series involves the tanks developing independent thought and judgment, bringing them closer to true sapient intelligence.

5 . GERTY Moon
Created 2009,WriterDirector Duncan Jones,Voice Kevin Spacey,Of course director Duncan Jones turned to Kevin Spacey to give his monotone robot a depth of character. We make few exceptions for emoticon tolerance, but well make one for Mr. Spacey.Sean Doyle.
6 . Mega Man
Created 1987,Creators Akira Kitamura, Capcom,Creator (fictional) Dr. Light,Mega Man predated saving. To keep advancing through Dr. Wilys nefarious plots, you had to leave your console on and play from the last checkpoint. The amount of electricity powering our NES to beat Mega Man 1 and 2 might have powered an actual robot. Mega Man (known as Rock Man outside the U.S.) now has over 50 games to his name and is a staple in gaming history.Sean Doyle.
7 . Rock Em Sock Em Robots
Created 1964,Creator Marvin Glass and Associates,We also like the British version, Raving Bonkers.
8 . Doraemon

Fujio,A robot sent from the future to help improve the lives of a mans ancestors, Doraemon becomes the companion of Nobitakun, a boy who has become accustomed to nothing but misery. Doraemon uses his fourth dimensional pocket to produce gadgets, tools, and medicines from the future. Nobitakun often attempts to use these gadgets for an easy way out of his problems, but his efforts almost always ultimately backfire hilariously, landing him in greater trouble than before.
9 . Awesom O South Park
Created 2004 Creator Trey Parker Voice Trey Parker In AWESOM O, Eric Cartman becomes The A.W.E.S.O.M. O 4000, master of pitching Adam Sandler vehicles to film studio execs until hes, of course, captured by the military. You know, a typical South Park episode.
10 . HK 47 Knights of the Old Republic
Created 2003,Creator James Ohlen and Drew Karpyshyn,Voice Kristoffer Tabori,It may seem impossible for a robot to be aligned to the Dark Side of The Force, but the robotic assassin HK 47 from BioWares classic Star Wars RPG Knights of the Old Republic was just that. Equally valuable for his prowess on the battlefield and his hilariously psychotic commentary, HK 47 could always be relied upon to take the piss out of any self serious Jedi or Bounty Hunter. He saw all organic meat bags the same, and had a really hard time figuring out why the main character didnt just kill everyone in sight. If only hed been around for the prequel movies, maybe he couldve done something about Jar Jar.Kirk Hamilton.
