Charapedia, a Japanese website about anime and video game characters, has conducted a poll of its own members regarding the strongest robots in anime. The range of "robots" allowed is wide: androids, cyborgs, even cat robots.

3. IDEON (Densetsu Kyojin Ideon; 531 points)

9. Arale Norimaki (Dr. Slump; 215 points)
10. Strike Freedom Gundam (Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Destiny; 213 points)
Note that the points that Charapedia uses aren't just raw vote tallies, but take into account the order of votes and whether comments were provided.
The poll was conducted from June 12 to June 18 among 10,000 of Charapedia's members and its Facebook page's members. 86.3% of the respondents were male. 77.5% of respondents were in their 10s or 20s; the rest were in their 30s.
