Dime stops! When character move, the movement is fluid. Movement have acceleration and deceleration. Robotic movement is machine like; acceleration is quick, followed by constant motion, and quick deceleration to exacting stop. Here is good video of how it looks:

Default animation curve one get in Blender is Bezier. Movement simulate organic fluid movement. Dime stop motion look like having constant movement between and hard stop exact hold at the end. You can simulate that by editing key frame points in Curve editor. Set key frame handle type to Vector. Then move the vector line so that you have almost constant slope to movement end point with hard angle at the transition.
