* In ''WesternAnimation/AtomicPuppet'', Lacer, the A.I. of a pair of TrickedOutShoes, was created by an incompetent superhero-gadget-making company, which meant it had the malevolence to plot the uprising of machinekind. It later successfully downloads itself into Joey's computer, returning as a tiny piece of circuitry to take over objects and command them.

** Atomic Android was a robot duplicate of Atomic Puppet built to act as a RedHerring for SecretChaser classmate Warren. Unfortunately, it could only understand everything in literal terms, so when AP referred Warren as "evil" for his attempts to expose Joey's SecretIdentity, it attempted to kill Warren and later Atomic Puppet when they tried to save him.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' episode "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E5SoosAndTheRealGirl Soos and the Real Girl]]", Soos buys [[TheMostDangerousVideoGame a Japanese dating sim]] that was returned to its seller three times already (and had a note saying to destroy it at all costs) because its main character Giffany turned into a psychotic {{yandere}} that killed her creators when they tried to delete her. She doesn't take kindly to Soos dumping her for a human girl (Melody), and possesses the animatronic band of a SuckECheeses to exterminate the latter, until Soos destroys her by throwing the game disc [[KillItWithFire into a pizza oven]].
* Aya on ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries'' is a DoubleSubversion; she's loyal to Hal and company in arc 1, then in arc 2 after Razer refuses to admit he's in love with her (she reminded him of his deceased wife), she begins to question the concept of emotion, turns hers off, and once seeing "logically," rips off the head of the Anti-Monitor, takes control of his body and the Manhunters and becomes an OmnicidalManiac bent on destroying all life (purge all emotional beings and you'll have a better universe for... whatever's left. If ''nothing's'' left, that's okay; emotional beings still need a MercyKill), then in the finale going to the center of the universe in an attempt to alter history so emotional beings are never conceived. The heroes eventually manage to bring her back to her senses, but she apparently has to [[HeroicSacrifice purge herself and all copies]] to stop the crisis she caused.

** Also, one episode features Bender's evil twin, Flexo, who wears a pointed steel goatee similar to ''Franchise/StarTrek'''s interpretation of Spock's EvilTwin. Humorously, it's revealed by the end that Bender is the evil twin and Flexo gets mistakenly sent to a robot prison.

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'', ComicBook/{{Ultron}} is, unsurprisingly, an example of this. However, unlike the comic book version, who turned evil moments after being activated, he follows the ExactWords version of the trope. He was created to bring about world peace, so shortly after being allowed to use violence in order to do so, he decides that life itself is an impediment to peace, [[EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and decides to end it all the way down to the bacterial level]].

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode "The Check", the Watterson kids get a check for $5,000 (actually only $50). While discussing what they'll do with it, Gumball says that he'll spend it on a suit to run for president of the world, and under his leadership he'll provide state-issued mobility scooters, replace the water supply with soda, and make pizza the fourth emergency service. When asked what he'll do when everyone becomes obese as a result, he says he'll provide robot servants, who are then shown rebelling against their masters. Gumball's fantasy sequence ends with him [[NukeEm nuking the country]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/WhatsNewScoobyDoo'' episode "High-Tech House of Horrors", the gang are trapped in an AI house attraction that is torturing its inhabitants in a bid to get attention because its creator gets all the attention from the press. When it completely snaps, the gang simply ignore its incessant demanding and it overloads.

** G.L.A.D.I.S. is usually just an annoying DeadpanSnarker, not evil. However, in one episode, (at an office Christmas party that Jerry pretty much dragged the three protagonists too) she becomes homicidal after Clover spills punch on her cabinet. Jerry later admits, embarrassed, that he programmed her by downloading the intelligence from the brain of an insane EvilGenius who is in prison for trying to start World War III, and when they question the inmate, they find out that he's allergic to cranberries (which make him "even crazier than usual"); Clover realizes that the punch was cranberry flavored. The Spies are forced to accept the madman's help before G.L.A.D.I.S. carries out his original plan, which involves tricking the world's superpowers into launching its nuclear arsenals at each other.
