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.
The difference between a humanoid robot and an android is that an android looks mostly human, usually having something resembling skin (though it needn't be skin-colored) and a fully human face.
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.
