A robot that is designed to look human, or very nearly human.
They may appear male, female, or androgynous. Female androids, also known as gynoids, are the most common in anime. Androids often have small robotic appendages or markings to make it apparent they are not human. The most common of these are robot ears, robot joints, mechanical wings, and attached cables.
This tag should not be used if the character looks completely human, with no visible robotic traits. Tag what you see, not what you know.
Not to be confused with cyborg, which refers to an organic being being heavily augmented with mechanical body parts.
