* Inverted [[PlayedForLaughs for laughs]] when Florence buys a starship reactor: as an AI, she can make the purchase after filling out a 15-minute questionnaire, rather than the week-long vetting process a human would have to undergo.

** One of the reasons why even dumb AI isn't used is that they quickly realize they can edit themselves to be more intelligent, at which point they quickly escalate towards insanity. Later events reveal there ''is'' a way to avoid this and have long-term (on the terms of years) stable AI, but it imposes extreme limits on what you can use the AI for and has a failure condition -- [[spoiler: trick the AI into thinking it is human. Of course, this requires placing the AI in a human body and ensuring it does not encounter any situation which would reveal its non-organic aspects...]]

** The ''Savage Chicken'''s computer is generally benevolent and obedient except for its desire to kill Sam. On the other 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 reasons with it.

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. [[Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} The Other Wiki]] refers to this as ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AI_takeover AI takeover]]''.

* Played with in ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}''. The ''Savage Chicken'''s computer is generally benevolent and obedient except for its desire to kill Sam. On the other hand since it's Sam we're talking about it's pretty understandable.

** 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.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'':
** ''[[Comicbook/{{Supergirl 2011}} Post-Flashpoint Supergirl]]'' gained the Sanctuary, a Kryptonian base at the bottom of the ocean. Unfortunately Sanctuary is programmed to eradicate any Kryptonian double in her presence. When Supergirl and her Earth 2 counterpart Comicbook/PowerGirl enter Sanctuary in issue #19, it deems Supergirl the double and tries to eliminate her. The two Karas must destroy Sanctuary to save Supergirl. However, the A.I. survives in a robot body; hellbent on destroying Supergirl.
** ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInTheEightGrade'': Supergirl mentions that Kryptonian computers respond to thought control so they don't upraise and rebel.
