Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Part man, part machine, all fan-preferred.
Basically this is fans Shipping a sentient machine, whether a robot, computer or otherwise, with someone else, usually an organic lifeform or human, or even another machine. Overlapping heavily with Fan-Preferred Couple, robo ships differ in that the relationship is not sexual in nature and sex should not even be possible for the couple in question (usually)... And people ship them together anyway due to compatible personalities. Or even despite incompatible personalities.
Remember that Robosexual is a popular trope all by itself, so in many stories it can be natural to expect a romantic turn sooner or later. Sometimes, writers who emphasize a robot's developing interpersonal relationship can Fumble it up, making friendship or what-have-you seem like something more. Robo Ship pairings tend to run into some problems due to What Measure Is a Non-Human? and Fan Dumb, so expect the same amount of Die for Our Ship as you would with a normal coupling.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Semi-justifiable if the object in question is an Instant A.I.: Just Add Water! or Ridiculously Human Robot in-as-far as having personality and thinking. Can even end up with a Robotic Spouse.
Compare Cargo Ship, Robosexual, Robo Romance. For literal robot ships, you may be looking for Sapient Ship.

Zeta/Ro, according to 99% of the The Zeta Project fandom. When that's not in play, expect for Zeta to still fall for someone or have romantic feelings to play up the What Measure Is a Non-Human?. In addition, fan wank has produced the theory that he may have been in love with the wife of the man he impersonated in his debut episode.

Super Danganronpa 2 has the implied pairing of Hajime Hinata and Chiaki Nanami. Note that for most of the story, the audience and Hinata are unaware of Nanami's status as an NPC, until The Reveal comes along. She's still sentient enough to have genuine feelings for him, especially if you max out their Free Time Events. She's also aware that Hinata will have to leave her behind in the simulation one day, and can only ask him to not forget her once he wakes up in the real world.

Doctor Who Expanded Universe carries on the TARDIS love:
Along the same lines as the audio Zagreus below, the short story "The Lying Witch and the Wardrobe" had a jealous TARDIS try to impersonate Romana, the Doctor's then-companion.
One rather odd Short Trips story suggests Kameleon had sex with the TARDIS and got pregnant.
Then there's the Faction Paradox story where the TARDIS's sister accuses the TARDIS of wanting to have a kid with the Doctor. And that's quite apart from the fact said story reveals the TARDIS has parents...
Another Faction Paradox story details the fucked-up relationship between the TARDIS "Compassion" and her Axe-Crazy firstborn son "Antipathy".

The two of them develop a close relationship over volumes 2 and 3 to the point that Penny considers slipping away from her superiors to stay with Ruby at Beacon.

Mobile Suit Gundam 00 - Gundam Meister Tieria Erde (an Artificial Human) is often paired with, well, almost everyone, but that includes the AI supercomputer Veda. Which actually has more canon support than any pairing for him except Tieria/Lockon. There's also Setsuna, who's sometimes paired with his Gundams, but that's more of a Cargo Ship since they're not sentient.
Made canon in the movie, where Mileina admits her love for him, much to her father's dismay

The "Scream of the Shalka" continuity depicts the Doctor living with a robotic version of the Master, and they seem to be extremely fond of each other. Also, the TARDIS's answering machine message comes across as having been recorded while they were engaging in hanky-panky. A good bit of the popularity of "Scream of the Shalka" has to do with the ship.

One of the Big Finish Doctor Who audios, Zagreus, had fun with this idea — the TARDIS appears as a personification in the form of Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart and announces it is betraying the Doctor after what it feels has been gross mistreatment. Later on, this personification fires at a trio of companions with its handgun whilst shouting about them "leaving their dirty knickers all over the place". If there was still an "I'm not making this up" page the link would go here.

A popular pairing in the Fallout 4 fandom is Sole Survivor and Nick Valentine, the synth detective who helps you track down your son—odd, considering he's got glowing yellow eyes and missing a good chunk of grayish 'skin', but not completely unsurprising, since he's also a Nice Guy Deadpan Snarker badass who stays useful in a firefight or hacking terminals. Sadly, he's not romanceable in the game, due to a combination of being a synth and being programmed with memories of his murdered fiancee, Jennifer Lands. X6-88, an Institute-aligned synth, is also popular in the fandom, despite also being un-romanceable.
Of course, there's also canonical robotic romance partners, like Curie or Paladin Danse, though it's debatable, since they're both third-generation Synths, blurring the line between Ridiculously Human Robot and Artificial Human.

Common as dirt in TRON fandom. Justified because at least half the characters are sentient computer code. There seems to be some downplayed chemistry between Sam and Quorra in TRON: Legacy, but Kevin Flynn actually kisses Yori in the original. note  The circumstances, however, are a little questionable in the canonical work. Proceed with caution For those who prefer slash, the scenes with Ram and Flynn make a good argument for Ho Yay. Then there's Yori and Tron, the canon couple, though the fact she's Sequel Non-Entity come TRON: Legacy make a case for Flynn and Tron. A common and very dark take on this trope is Clu/"Rinzler", as the latter is a brainwashed slave of the former. There's also TRON: Uprising, with the Dating Catwoman situation between Beck and Paige and Zed's hopeless crush on Mara. In the Alternate Continuity of Tron 2.0, there's some Ship Tease between Jet (human) and Mercury (Program) and a case to be made for Alan Bradley and Ma3a, given Ma3a is a Virtual Ghost of his wife.

Shepard/Legion, which is partially supported by the fact that Legion, despite being a robotic Mind Hive with no real emotions, seems to somehow fanboy over Shepard.

Alexis Thi Dang and Starscream in Transformers Armada. Their mutual attraction is actually canon, but isn't pursued because a) Alexis is a small, fragile, meat-based creature while Starscream is a giant airplane man, and b) they're both too young for the story to go anywhere with it without getting uncomfortable.note As Hot Shot's foil, Starscream is intended to be the newly onlined rookie who's too arrogant and inexperienced to do much without someone to keep them in line. the difference is, Hot Shot has Optimus Prime as a leader and mentor, while Megatron treats Starscream with disdain and could have had a powerful and loyal servant had he not beaten and humilated Starscream so many times.

Xenosaga has its protagonist Shion Uzuki with KOS-MOS, which for most of the series, is heavily supported by the Les Yay between the two of them, most obviously that the more influence Shion has over KOS-MOS's design the more revealing her outfits are. Additionally, their interactions often delve into Romantic Two-Girl Friendship territory, especially in the third game where it's revealed that part of the Big Bad's plan involved manipulating events that would cause the two of them to grow closer together to awaken the soul sealed in KOS-MOS—the success of which adds even more Ship Tease to a pair that had been getting a ton throughout the whole game.

The possible relationship between Negi and Chachamaru in Mahou Sensei Negima! (They recently had a pactio kiss).
A really, really long kiss. It went for four pages. Though this was because Chachamaru, who as a robot at least partially believes she has no soul - a requirement for the pactio. Negi ends up apparently pushing it through out of sheer will and magical power, though this could have something to do with his heritage (the royal magic his mother had, and that his line established the pactio system).
It's possible that Negi's own soul took the place of hers when his Black Magic kicked in.

Big Al from the Ratchet & Clank series is shown to have a crush on Helga, accidentally professing his love for the fembot over the intercom on the Phoenix. The fact that he upgrades himself with cybernetics after a blaster shot to the butt in Ratchet: Deadlocked has lead some fans to theorize that perhaps he installed a "robotic interface" along with the new arm and half-head.

Ciel and Zero of Mega Man Zero. It's canon, on the former's part, that is...
As if that's not enough, Zero 4 introduces us to Craft and Neige. Unlike the ship above, it's canon on both sides. And a very important part of the game's plot.
While it's never made clear how truly interested they are in Zero, the Four Guardians—with the notable exception of Phantom—do seem to enjoy battling him quite a bit. Perhaps it's hereditary, seeing as the Guardians were created from X's DNA. On that note, Fairy Leviathan takes things a bit further by teasing and openly flirting with Zero, a dynamic that carries on to their Soul Jars, Model Z and Model L.
Minor Resistance NPC Andrew shares his backstory with Zero in the first game, revealing himself to be the robot half of one of these. Having fallen in love with a human woman he eventually married, Andrew even made sure to periodically change his appearance to match hers (as Reploids don't physically age as humans do) and kept his elderly form as a way to remember her after her passing.
Elpizo, the eventual Big Bad of Zero 2 can be interpreted as harboring romantic feelings for Ciel, which persist after his Face–Heel Turn. At the very least, he holds her in high regard—a stark contrast to his views on humans in general.

Despite not being even slightly canon, the Five Nights at Freddy's fandom is gushing with this trope. The most popular ships seem to be Foxy/Chica, Foxy/Mangle,and Springtrap/Mangle, though there are plenty of ships as well.
However, Fan Dumb and shipping wars are both in effect here. Many people use the fact that the characters are robots as a reason that they probably shouldn't be shipped. On top of that, many are also squicked out by it, too, since after all, 11/12 of the robots are possessed by the souls of murder victims, all of whom happen to be children. The 12th robot, meanwhile, is possessed by an adult. Never mind that this is essentially pedophilia, since the adult in question is the same person who murdered the aforementioned children.

Cyborg from Teen Titans is by far the least shipped major character, which could be due to him being part robot. Early in the fandom many shipped him with either teammate Raven or villain Jinx; however, the fandom soon gravitated towards shipping him in a Slap-Slap-Kiss relationship with Bumblebee instead, despite the fact Word of God said their intentions were the opposite.

Doctor Who has the Doctor and various companions and their part-organic TARDIS.
Doctor/TARDIS got a bit of Ship Tease in the Classic series as an Actor-Inspired Element from Tom Baker, who begun the practice of always referring to the TARDIS as "she" and tended to caress its controls very sensually, unlike his more businesslike predecessors. It was then very much made canon in the new series. First, with hints:
Then a bit more explicit:
Eleven says "Thanks, dear" when it gives him a new screwdriver. In series 6, Eleven actually kisses the front door of the TARDIS when he's reunited with it in the sickbay of the ghost ship where the missing crew and Rory were being held.
Then properly, with a human manifestation of the TARDIS kissing and... biting him, and insisting that her name is "Sexy", since that's what he always calls her.
Some people started shipping Rory/TARDIS after the aforementioned human manifestation called him "the pretty one" and briefly shared a telepathic connection with him. As it turns out a few episodes later, Rory, the TARDIS and Amy conceive a child together. All three of them. That's 100% canon now. The Doctor is a bit weirded out by it, then proceeds to marry said child — long story.
Also, Master/TARDIS.
Season 10 added more confirmation for Doctor/TARDIS, as well as introducing Bill/TARDIS.
There's a few three-way fics of Doctor×female Companion×TARDIS.
One fic had the Threesome of the TARDIS, the statue of Aneurin Bevan in the pedestrianised bit of Cardiff city centre (it was wearing Captain Jack's coat, and the fic was unclear as to whether or not it was channelling his spirit) and the Weasleys' Ford Anglia.
TARDIS/Impala also happens to be a popular ship
There's also an occasional Crack Pairing of Doctor's TARDIS/Master's TARDIS.
Red Dwarf crossover "Incompatable": K9×Skutter.
The "Scream of the Shalka" continuity depicts the Doctor living with a robotic version of the Master, and they seem to be extremely fond of each other. Also, the TARDIS's answering machine message comes across as having been recorded while they were engaging in hanky-panky. A good bit of the popularity of "Scream of the Shalka" has to do with the ship.

Mega Man X has the X/Zero ship, which can be considered pretty close to canon due to the fact that the two are both already best friends.
After X7, fans began shipping Axl with X and Zero, forming a One True Threesome.

GLaDOS/Chell, Portal, which tends to accompany fan interpretations of GLaDOS as a Psycho Lesbian Yandere computer.
As of the sequel, Wheatley/Chell have gotten a healthy dose of this as well—not to mention Rick the Adventure Sphere.
Atlas and P-body of Portal 2's co-operative play mode get a lot of this too. Given this picture, and being another of those games with hug gesture, Valve may be invoking this deliberately.
Crossover version in Poker Night 2, where Claptrap appears to have a crush on GLaDOS, even giving her a rose in a PS3 crossover wallpaper.
A few Crossover Ship versions of this exist as well, shipping GLaDOS with other insane sentient computers. Popular ones include GLaDOS/SHODAN, and GLaDOS/Durandal. xkcd even pairs her up with HAL 9000.

A romantic relationship between Alisa Bosconovitch and Lars Alexandersson is pretty heavily hinted at in Tekken 6's main story, which continues on to Tag Tournament 2 and especially 7 (complete with Lee Chaolan seemingly casting his lot with the pair). Meanwhile, the film Tekken: Blood Vengeance launched an Alisa/Xiaoyu ship.

Time of Eve has these in both the robot/robot (Koji/Rina) and robot/human (Rikuo/Sammy) varieties, although only the former is official.

Star Trek: Voyager has Seven of Nine/the Doctor. It's canon that the Doctor had a crush on Seven, but not that it was reciprocated - she officially ends up with Chakotay.

Mega Man:
Roll and Bass/Forte. It's just dang CUTE. And not only that, the apparent ages of the two make it something of a Toy Ship as well.
Mega Man X has the X/Zero ship, which can be considered pretty close to canon due to the fact that the two are both already best friends.
After X7, fans began shipping Axl with X and Zero, forming a One True Threesome.
Ciel and Zero of Mega Man Zero. It's canon, on the former's part, that is...
As if that's not enough, Zero 4 introduces us to Craft and Neige. Unlike the ship above, it's canon on both sides. And a very important part of the game's plot.
While it's never made clear how truly interested they are in Zero, the Four Guardians—with the notable exception of Phantom—do seem to enjoy battling him quite a bit. Perhaps it's hereditary, seeing as the Guardians were created from X's DNA. On that note, Fairy Leviathan takes things a bit further by teasing and openly flirting with Zero, a dynamic that carries on to their Soul Jars, Model Z and Model L.
Minor Resistance NPC Andrew shares his backstory with Zero in the first game, revealing himself to be the robot half of one of these. Having fallen in love with a human woman he eventually married, Andrew even made sure to periodically change his appearance to match hers (as Reploids don't physically age as humans do) and kept his elderly form as a way to remember her after her passing.
Elpizo, the eventual Big Bad of Zero 2 can be interpreted as harboring romantic feelings for Ciel, which persist after his Face–Heel Turn. At the very least, he holds her in high regard—a stark contrast to his views on humans in general.
Prairie, The Captain of the Guardians in Mega Man ZX, is suggested to have pined for fellow Reploid Giro because he reminded her of someone she knew in the past. (Giro, for those not in the know, is an Expy of Zero, even resembling him to a degree and being in possession of Model Z.) Considering it's all but stated Prairie is an older version of Alouette, Ciel's Kid Sidekick from the Zero series, the question is raised if Alouette harbored a Precocious Crush on Zero despite implicitly being a Shipper on Deck for Ciel/Zero.

Legends of Tomorrow has hinted at a ship between Rip Hunter and the sentient AI that operates his timeship the Waverider, Gideon. Confirmed in the episode "Land of the Lost" when Gideon creates a human-looking avatar of herself and she and Rip share The Big Damn Kiss.
There's also Gideon/Sara, as when Sara sees Gideon's avatar she calls her hot.

Transformers has many, most involving the "male" Transformers. Daniel/Arcee can be seen by some as a near-canon Ship, with the ending three-parter having them nearly inseparable, missing each other if apart for a short time, and the exchange where he's hugging one of her consoles as best he can during a textbook I "Uh" You, Too:
If it weren't a giant robot woman and a ten-year-old human boy, it would be taken without question as the day the Official Couple got their Relationship Upgrade, but, well, they are. So there's the divide between those who say "that's a new one, but we all heard it" and "that's just wrong, they *had* to have meant it as something platonic!"
Let's not forget Kiss Players. All three main "couples" are canon, to varying levels of discomfort. This was, after all, a series that the head writer made to "make jaws drop."
Marissa and Optimus blatantly flirt, even talking about how much they both like polishing his gear shift and scrubbing his vehicle mode (moderate).
Shaoshao and Hot Rod are both a bit Tsundere towards each other, punctuated by small amounts of unaddressed sexual tension like Shaoshao being angry that she "gets something" out of the deal since her prior (unknown, unreciprocated) attraction is toward Marissa (mild).
Atari's Autorooper partner is a horrible pervert who likes to look at her underwear and made lots of uncomfortable remarks while fighting a Legion inside her body, negging her dessert choices repeatedly. Despite this abuse, she reciprocates (CODE RED, DEFCON ONE).
Movie fandom has Bumblebee/Sam.
Transformers Animated has Bumblebee/Sari. It looks like a human/machine pairing at first, but she's a Robot Girl...
Megatron/Starscream.
And of course, the Generation 1 episode "The Girl Who Loved Powerglide". It features a Slap-Slap-Kiss relationship between a grouchy A-10 and a Walking Techbane Girl of the Week with a MacGuffin the bad guys wanted.
The Transformers Wiki has an article on the subject. It's actually quite common in Canon.
Transformers: Prime gives us this exchange Jack's mother June:
Not that Jack has any room to talk, due to the severe Relationship Writing Fumble between him and Arcee.

To this day, Star Trek: The Next Generation's Data and Yar are still very popular. Or Data and Geordi, if you swing that way. Or Take a Third Option and go with all three of them.
Or for those who want a straight ship, but don't want to set it when Yar was alive, there's always Data/Troi as well. Or heck, you could just go with Data/Enterprise…
