Number 5 from Short Circuit
When SAINT Number 5 is short-circuited he is changed forever. He becomes sentient… alive. From that moment forward he wants to be accepted as a living being. It doesn’t matter that he’s made up of mechanical parts and desires input more than any other living being on earth. Usually when robots become self aware they attempt to enslave or destroy mankind. Number 5 just wants to become part of society, and he likes to dance. Unfortunately a lot of the comedy from the film stems from racist stereotypes…seriously 80s, what was up with your blatant comedy film racism? Ben Jamituya (Fisher Stevens) was only one of many during that era. Still you can’t help but be charmed by Number 5’s earnestness and desire to be accepted by his friends. Plus he does have the shoulder laser canon, a nice bonus feature for any robot pal.
