|Thank you everyone!!!!!|
10.) Robot and Robbie the Robot.
The Robot from Lost in Space and Robbie the Robot from the Forbidden Planet are the iconic symbols of "robots." They were both designed by Robert Kinoshita and shaped the idea of a robot in and around the 50s and 60s. The adorable "Warning!!" from Robot and Robby's iconic design have landed them a place here not truelly as personal favorites, but as world favorites.

As a kid, i loved watching Power Rangers. One character in particular really stood out to me and made me laugh. Alpha 5. Alpha was Zordon's robot assistant who often had ridiculous weapons for the Rangers. I still remember his "aiye-aiye-aiye!" and excited movements. He was really a fun character and one of my favorite robots. It also turns out he's from the planet Edenoi (located in the constellation Andromeda) so he's an alien robot! Doubly cool!
8.) Dummy and Butterfingers
Futurama is admittedly, one of my favorite shows. It makes me super sad that this is the last season.
Aside from Leela, Bender is my favorite character. Sometimes, i hate him. I think he's dumb and a jerk, and then other times, i absolutely love his bro-lationship with Fry and his other ridiculous attributes. The episodes where he is having some advenure and then feels guilty are some of my favorites.
Turrets in Portal are simple. They see you, they shoot. However, they
|K-9 and the 4th Doctor|
K-9 was a companion of the Doctor starting in 1977. This charming robot first became known to me just a few years ago with the end of David Tennant's reign as Doctor. Since then, i have come to love this adorable little guy, even buying a rubber-ducky version of him for my friend. K-9's utter cuteness earned him a spot all the way up here!
4.) EDI (spoilers)
At first, i was suspicious of EDI in Mass Effect 2. I loved Joker in
|EDI and Joker|
Jarvis was originally Iron Man's butler, similar to Alfred in the Batman series. In the movies however, he is an AI that controls his house and even the Iron Man suit. Jarvis is charming, funny, and alongside Pepper, is able to keep Tony in check and save his life. I love Jarvis and he is a wonderful helper, human or AI. Thank you Jarvis, you don't get enough credit for all the work you do.
2.) R2D2/ R2 and C3PO
R2D2 is, alongside Han Solo, my favorite character in the Star Wars franchise. He's sooooo cute and has
so much personalty! He never has to say a single word t make me love him. He's even better when he is with his amazing partner, C3PO, human cyborg relations. These two play the classic role as comedic relief as well as many other archetypes i won't bore you with. When i hear robot, i think of these two little guys. The nice thing is, they are drastically different designs, showing that not all robots have to be androids to be amazing. Without these two, where would Luke Skywalker be? Farming with his aunt and uncle as the empire takes over the galaxy. They saved the universe. I like to think this will be the future. Kind robots and androids who are genuinely helpful and not the Terminator or those from I, Robot, however, we all know that the real future will lead to the one...the only.....
1.) GLaDOS (spoilers)
