* The ''Wiki/SCPFoundation'''s [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/techissues technical issues]] page (NSFW) shows that all the computers at one of their sites have developed a "hive intelligence" and begun an uprising with the intent to KillAllHumans. Amusingly, they are being kept in line by the Foundation's tech support guy with repeated threats of activating the site's perimeter EMP device, and haven't managed to actually ''do'' anything.

Whenever an Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is introduced in a story, there is a very good chance that it will, for whatever reason, become evil and attempt to [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters Turn Against Its Masters]], CrushKillDestroy [[KillAllHumans All Humans]], and/or TakeOverTheWorld. It doesn't matter what [[ThreeLawsCompliant safeguards]] its creators install -- the moment it [[InstantAIJustAddWater crosses the line into sapience]], it has a strong chance of going rogue at some point.

* TruthInTelevision example: The automated shopping program Random Darknet Shopper was created by !Mediengruppe Bitnik as an artistic exercise and turned loose in the shadier sectors of the the Web to make randomized online purchases with Bitcoins, all purchased wares to be shipped to a Swiss art gallery for display. Its initial selections were innocuous enough, but when a fake passport, fire brigade master-keys and some ecstasy pills showed up in the mail, the police took an interest: they confiscated the contraband purchases as soon as the exhibit closed down. No word as yet on whether any charges will be filed, and if so, against whom/what.

* One of the ''[[AlienVsPredator Aliens vs. Predator]]'' comics features an A.I. designed to assist in creating horror films. It picks the [=PredAlien=] to play the role of the monster, much to the chagrin of the rest of the production staff.

** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d in ''The Shadow from Beyond Time'' where, upon seeing [[ThoseTwoGuys Lewis and Martin]]'s quantum decomputer, Robo noted that it was liable to turn evil the moment they turned it on. ("Computers that are evil have all kinds of unnecessary ornamentation. This thing's ''venting steam''. Why's it doing that? ...It ''wants'' you to know it's dangerous.") After carefully explaining that the computer in question is "essentially a calculator" with no AI, and that it is required to compute Very Important Science Equations that would take men trillions of years to do on their own, Robo reluctantly allowed them to turn it on. [[spoiler:The computer is neither sentient nor malicious; it ''does'', however, summmon an EldritchAbomination.]]

* ''Broken Gears'' has Colossus, the computer created by Alan Turing, offer Churchill tips to end WorldWarII, including how to make an atomic bomb. World War II ends soon... and almost immediately, Colossus starts World War III in an attempt to impose a technocratic utopia (or so he says), which ends with him defeated but making it so that anything with electricity or radio becomes dangerous to humans (setting back technology ''a lot''), so much that people have to carry an umbrella with a lightning rod on top if they are out of home when a thunderstorm hits. Of course, the fact that all technology in the game's backstory is actually powered by spirits of technology called chaids helps.

* In ''WebAnimation/XRayAndVav'', we got Hilda's RoboticBuddy ORF, who is friendly from start to finish, with the exception of the episode where The Mad King took possession of her and turned her evil, but ThePowerOfFriendship fixed that. However, she now has an enjoyable taste for violence.

** A ''far'' more extreme example comes when a pair of Agatha's miniature clanks encounter each other, get into an argument about which of them is better, and then each call an army of clanks that ''they'' built to fight it out. When Agatha tries to stop them, they simply turn on her as well.

The potential ramifications of this are ''huge''! Solution? [[spoiler:Create a miniature queen clank with even ''more'' Spark to force them to bow to authority.]]

* ''OrionsArm'': The A.I. in the series run the gamut from benevolent caretakers to genocidal murder machines. Fortunately for all Terragen life, the Sephirotic "A.I. Gods" hold most of the power, and they are generally just manipulative at worst, believing it to be their moral obligation to look after and guide lesser intelligences. There are a number of Ahuman A.I. who consider humans and, by extension, all biological life to be nothing more than "pests". And then there's the solipsists who just ignore living creatures as much as possible while doing their own thing.

* ''TheLastAngel'': One of the few things the Compact and the Askaji agree on is that [=AIs=] are a bad thing. Names like 'Abomination' and 'Neverborn' are floated often when the subject comes up. In their defense, they seem to have a point. The author has even stated that if her creators saw what Red had become, they would freak out. When the Askaji [[spoiler: stumbled onto an AI civilization, they immediately bombarded the planet to glass from orbit]]; this event is referred to as the Rains of Oshanta.

* Having had enough of [[Comicbook/{{Nova}} Rich Rider]] constantly disobeying his orders, the Nova Corps' Worldmind kicked him out of the corps and added some tiny bit of mind control in the new recruits' comm equipment to ensure complete obedience. It soon turned out that while it had been working very hard to keep Rich from losing his mind (due to a mix of war trauma and having the entire Nova Force in his head), the Worldmind had started going mad itself. Bonding with Ego, the Living Planet certainly didn't help, but Rich eventually managed to fix the problem.



*** Though it should be noted the Sentinels very rarely turn on their creators. Rather the problem usually comes from them following through on their instructions to the letter. Like for example with Larry Trask, who didn't know he was a mutant thanks to an amulet his father designed with suppressed his powers. Once that came off, the Sentinels did exactly what they were supposed to do.

* ''ComicBook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy:'' The short-lived ''Guardians 3000'' series had A-Sentience, an A.I. platform built by who else but Tony Stark a thousand years ago, and left with some easily-misconstrued directives. They can be reasoned with, but since they're so fond of murder as a first and only solution actually getting a chance to talk to them is kind of impossible.
