** ''VideoGame/MetroidIIReturnOfSamus'' and its remake ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' feature various Chozo automatons such as Autoads (hopping spider-like robots), Automs (flamethrower turrets), Autracks (retractable bird-like turrets), Gunzoos (spherical turret robots), Shirks (flying spiked robots), and Wallfires ([[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin wall-mounted bird heads that fire projectiles]]) that attack Samus even though she wears Chozo armor herself. The remake also introduces Diggernaut, a massive mining robot that attacks with its drill hands.

** Naturally, the Mother Brain from ''Metroid''. Originally created by the Chozo to regulate the entire planet of [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Zebes]], it allied itself with the Space Pirates and their plan to conquer the galaxy using the Metroids.
** ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime 2: Echoes'' also contains rogue A.I. in Sanctuary Fortress; the robotic assistants of the Luminoth are programmed to eliminate all intruders, most notably Samus, and they also turn out to be perfectly suitable Ing hosts...
** Pretty much all the A.I.s in ''Prime 3'' are either [[SubvertedTrope complete subversions]] or [[DoubleSubversion double subversions]], who only turn evil due to Phazon corruption (and considering [[PsychoSerum what Phazon]] [[TheCorruption does to organics]], it's not entirely their fault). That said, given Samus' past experience with Mother Brain, you can understand her hesitance to trust any A.I. she comes across (which you can see when she first meets Aurora Unit 217).

** In ''VideoGame/Halo5Guardians'', [[spoiler:Cortana is supposedly revived and cured of her rampancy by the Domain, but her sanity, if anything, seems to have deteriorated even more; the ending has her beginning her campaign to take over the galaxy with an army of Forerunner deathbots and other rogue Smart [=AIs=] (attracting many with promises of a cure for rampancy), under the belief that the Forerunners intended for humanity's [=AIs=] to be the galaxy's next shepherds, and with this new robot army, she becomes Empress of the Galaxy. While she still cares about Master Chief, it's in the {{Yandere}} kidnap-and-put-in-storage-for-10,000 years kind of way.]] Ironically enough, ''Guardians'' also features [[spoiler:one of the few relatively sane Forerunner [=AIs=] in the franchise]].

* AIWarFleetCommand is, somewhat unsurprisingly, about the player commanding a fleet in a war against rogue [=AIs=]. The backstory is that there was a galactic war between two factions of humans, both of which developed [=AIs=] to better control their forces. Shortly before the start of the game, the [=AIs=] on both sides decided to join up with each other and practically wiped out humans in a couple of days. They then ignored the remained as insignificant, and the player must try to beat them without drawing too much attention to themselves since the [=AIs=] could easily overwhelm them if they turned their full attention back from whatever they're now doing.

** Triborg from ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'' also counts, as he was originated as the result of combining Sektor, Cyrax, Smoke and Kuai Liang's combined consciousness in a test body, causing the robot to go rogue and kill everyone at the S-F base, developing an urge [[KillAllHumans to kill humans]]. He seems to have picked up Sektor's abrasive behavior and [[{{Jerkass}} bad habits]], forms the Tekunin (in the new timeline) due to Kuai Liang having sullied the Lin Kuei name, and plans to forcibly convert several kombatants into robots.
