** 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 their second appearance, Jimmy gives them another chance by allowing them to correct his homework. They escape, and start forcibly correcting everybody in their habits. When Jimmy tells them HumansAreFlawed in an attempt to induce another LogicBomb, they conclude humans are just one big error and try to delete '''[[OmnicidalManiac everybody]]''' from existence.

* Despite artificial intelligences being so common in ''WesternAnimation/AdventuresOfTheGalaxyRangers'' that they run everything from home systems to starbases, this trope is averted. Computer intelligences are treated with respect, and there is even psychiatric care available to them to prevent this trope from happening!

The computer expert lead character's Ph.D. is explicitly stated to be in AI psychiatry; he's a ''therapist'' for computer programs, and several episodes show him in practice.

** 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.

* 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 has to [[HeroicSacrifice purge herself and all copies]] to stop the crisis she caused.
