I know you guys love identifying things but we don't have any Robots! :D

    Ones that people haven't already gotten: 10 is Pneuman from the "Tom Strong" comics by Alan Moore. 15 is Woody Allen impersonating a robot butler from the movie "Sleeper". 24 is Brainiac from the DC animated universe. – Hypnosifl Dec 15 '15 at 5:15

    These kind of "questions" seem to be a better fit for Sporcle than for StackOverflow, IMHO. – Junuxx Dec 15 '15 at 5:40

    @Mast: Yeah yeah, debatable. Besides, "The StackExchange Q&A Network" is such a mouthful. – Junuxx Dec 15 '15 at 7:55

    What's the source of this image? – jwodder Dec 15 '15 at 13:31

    #26 is technically a cyborg, not a robot. Their brain is human, but they have an emotion suppression circuit to keep them from acting it. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Dec 15 '15 at 16:13

This image lists all of the characters in order. The text lists the characters and the year they first appeared. The work is by artist Daniel Nyari, but this image of a poster isn't shown on his website. (There are other versions of the image, with the same text, but the heads in a different order, which screws up the readability.)

Famous Robots by Daniel Nyari

Going left-to-right, these are robots, followed by the franchises or single works they appear in:

Row 1:

  • T-600: Terminator
  • Astro Boy: Astro Boy
  • Vision: Marvel Comics/Avengers
  • Bender: Futurama
  • Brainiac: DC Comics/Superman

Row 2:

  • C-3PO: Star Wars
  • Clank: Ratchet and Clank
  • Cyberman: Doctor Who
  • Cylon Centurion: Battlestar Galactica (Original, but some of these models appear in the reimagined series as well)
  • Awesome-O: South Park

Row 3:

  • Gort: The Day the Earth Stood Still
  • Rosie: The Jetsons
  • Alpha 5: Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
  • Voltron: Voltron
  • EVE: WALL-E

Row 4:

  • Maschinemensch: Metropolis
  • Optimus Prime: Transformers
  • WALL-E: WALL-E
  • Wheatley: Portal
  • Marvin: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Row 5:

  • Miles Monroe: Sleeper
  • Hal 9000: 2001: A Space Odyssey
  • Iron Giant: The Iron Giant
  • Robby the Robot: Forbidden Planet
  • Pneuman: DC Comics/Tom Strong

Row 6:

  • R2-D2: Star Wars
  • Sentinel: Marvel Comics/X-Men
  • ASIMO: Real life, not fictional
  • H8: Dark Horse Comics/Magnus Robot Fighter
  • Mega Man: Mega Man/Rock Man

Also, there is at least one error. The robot listed as "Alpha" is Alpha 5, known primarily from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (whereas Power Rangers refers to a plethora of seasons and works, where Alpha 5 does not appear).

  • Actually haven't seen that image! – CandiedMango Dec 15 '15 at 5:22
  • That's actually a different image! – CandiedMango Dec 15 '15 at 5:23
  • @CandiedMango I came about it on accident. I was just searching "famous robots' trying to find your #6, and this popped up. Kismet! – user31178 Dec 15 '15 at 5:23

    +1 for doing a reverse image search that none of us thought to do!! :-) – Praxis Dec 15 '15 at 5:46

    @Praxis Technically not a reverse image search, I found it by accident! I was only trying to find #6 to help out you guys. Based on this artist's other work, I didn't think I'd find a full-size version! – user31178 Dec 15 '15 at 5:48
