The Tin Man was a character from the Earth story The Wizard of Oz. He was a mechanical man who longed to be Human. His lamentation of not being Human was expressed in the tune If I Only Had a Heart. By the end of the story, he learned that he was always Human. He did not realize this as he worried so much. (TNG: "The Schizoid Man")

In the episode, Dr. Ira Graves only referred to the character as a mechanical man.

Armus referred to Data as a "Tin Man" in 2364, after Data theorized that the slick they encountered on Vagra II might be a life form, as well as several other times throughout their encounter. Additionally, he was called "robot", "device", and "machine". (TNG: "Skin of Evil")
