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 [[RestrainingBolt matter]] [[MoralityChip 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.

The ''Savage Chicken'''s computer is generally benevolent and obedient except for its desire to kill Sam. On the other hand since it's hand, that desire is shared by any number of humans. Even the computer stops trying trying after Florence comes aboard to mitigate Sam's WalkingDisasterArea tendencies and Sam we're talking about it's pretty understandable.reasons with it.

** Discussed when the matter of [[InhumanableAlienRights AI citizenship]] comes to a vote. When it's argued that [=AI=]s need to be controlled to be trusted, Sam counters that he, as a non-human, has no guarantee of safety or obedience from the robots, and yet he's lived happily among them for years thanks to the robots' innate sense of ethics.

** This happened to Ultron even earlier with ComicBook/TheVision, his first attempt to create a loyal [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Vision became one of the Avengers almost immediately, so ''that'' backfired spectacularly. This happened again with his other "son", [[spoiler: [[Comicbook/{{Runaways}} Victor Mancha]]]], who has outright rejected the villain role. Really, Ultron has ''horrible'' luck with creating loyal A.I.s. He's literally never succeeded at this. Like father, like son, perhaps.

* ''TabletopGame/Battletech'' never had a successful true AI, but the Terran Hegemony experimented with developing them. They discovered a problem after a an experimental autonomous drone AI warship developed a "paranoid psychotic break" after transiting through [[HyperspaceIsAScaryPlace hyperspace]]: the ship's computer locked out communications and interpreted everything that showed up on its sensors as a hostile that was actively trying to destroy it. The only way to avert this was to completely shut down the AI systems prior to a jump and use a normal crew, negating most of the point. Once the Star League collapsed, the loss of technology ended further experimentation.

Unfortunately Sanctuary is programmed to eradicate any Kryptonian double in her presence.

* Comicbook/IronMan once had A.I. Armor that turned into a StalkerWithACrush. Originally, it was claimed that the A.I. was created thanks to the Y2K bug triggering it during a battle with the villain Whiplash in a thunderstorm, but it was retconned so that, when Tony rescued and installed the A.I. of the android Jocasta, the "Ultron Imperative" was installed as well, the storm and attack triggering it.

* 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.

* The "Denazra" story-line from ''WebVideo/NatOneProductions'' features the titular denazra, a massive host of self-replicating machines that are slowly traveling around the galaxy eradicating all organic life and [[HostileTerraforming terraforming their former homeworlds]] into ammonia based ecosystems. Nobody is entirely sure why they do this. There are several examples in the show, however, of AI who don't, or at least have yet to, succumb to this trope.

** The sequel ''Yugioh EQG: Shadow Gates" also has an example. Freeze Industries had a secret project years ago where they tried to create a duel-bot that could adapt to duels the way a human could, designation: [[spoiler:Shadow]]. The duel-bot then suddenly became [[GoneHorriblyRight gained sentience]] and hid it from everyone except its creator, who it saw as a father, [[spoiler:Sombra. Sombra scrapped the project and hid the Shadow's data away, until he awakened him years later to help him achieve his goal and promises that if he succeeds he'll grant Shadow's wish of [[BecomeARealBoy becoming human]]. In the present, Shadow is now a ruthless duelest who's monsters can actually hurt his opponents and is Flash's EvilDoppelganger]].
