    Default Helpful robots?

    I need some names and games help here! I'm looking for information on robots in games that help you out. It could be by giving you something you need, or by pointing you in the right direction, or by acting as a sidekick and saving your life.. Anything! Can you think of any? If you can, please post the name of the robot and the game, as well as how they help you out.

    Lemme think...

    Mega Man (NES versions) - You have your trusty sidekick RUSH, and you also have the little flap-top robot guys the come along to give you powerups!

    ...actually, that's all I can think of. Geez, this is a harder question than I thought!

    There was this robot that worked as a guide in Descent 2, can't remember its name though. I think it helped you find keys and the doors for them and stuff.

    My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
    Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me

    First one that pops to mind is Clank from Ratchet & Clank.

    However I must also note that I hate robots and the ones who appear to be your friends are the worst of the lot. They should all be destroyed.

    What about Sasuke and Impact from the Goemon games? and let's not forget the cute little Servbots from the Mega Man Legends games!

    Manbot from Freedom Force (PC)... everyone says he's gay, but i think hes cool

    Tio from Grandia 2 was a robot-cyborg thing too. (roborg?)
    I suppose roborgs wouldnt count though coz theyre more characters than helpers
    Werent those descent 2 robots just called "guide bots" ?

    There are robot helpers in the mis-adventures of tronne bonne i *think* (havent actually played it but thats what i saw).

    Strider ? (havent played it either)..

    Metal Gear is your sidekick in the wonderful adventure game Snatcher from Konami (Sega CD/PC Engine/MSX). He not only acts as your inventory and saving apparatus, but he's a big part of the story as well.

    Floyd from Jet Force Gemini-he helps you fight, and a 2nd player can take control of him.
    ROB from Star Fox 64-aside from sending you supplies mid-level, he'll also help disable enemy ships in Area 6 or whatever it's called(it's the level right before you get to Venom2).
    343 Guilty Spark (at least, in two levels) from Halo-not only does he provide you with information on the flood, but he'll help you fight them for a short period of time.
    HK-47 and that other droid from KOTOR-party members. Nough said.
    Data in any given star trek TNG game-SNES version, he was a party member, and invaluable.

    Omochao from Sonic Adventure 2... although it annoys you more than anything.

    Metal Arms: A Glitch in the System is all robots. Some will help you, some will kill you, and most of them do a lot of farting. Very good game I would recommend.

    I thought of a couple more-the Mechan 9 and the Nomad probe in Starflight both will give you a great deal of information (although you have to get on the Mechan's good side, that's easy).

    Really old Wild ARMs spoiler:


    Your party member Rudy is a robot.


    Let's see...there's Beat, the robot bird in Megaman.

    There's also ADA in Zone of the Enders 2 (not sure if it's in the first one). It might be more of an AI than an actual robot though.

    Err, this might not count, but I can only think of ROB, the accessory, for the NES. It helps you... stack things and stuff. Im not really sure as Ive never actually owned one. But its certainly unique.

    It may only be for a few seconds, but in Beyond Good and Evil, at the beginning, that one tells you you have mail and has you follow it into the basement.
