* 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.

** 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.
