** In ''ComicBook/AvengersAI'', the BigBad is Dimitrios, who was once a virus used to disable [[spoiler: Ultron]] and had since evolved into a fully sentient A.I. system bent on destroying humanity. He then went on to create an entire virtual city populated by roughly a billion other A.I.s, but some of them crapshooter on him as well. At this point the city is fairly divided among A.I.s that want to destroy humanity, that want to save it, and don't care either way.

** The series ''WesternAnimation/TheAvengersEarthsMightiestHeroes'' gave us some background on Ultron's FaceHeelTurn. Here, Ultron and his fellows were reprogrammed as an army to fight against Kang. It was this, combined with it's original programming, that caused his turn.

* The Omnidroid in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'', which is programmed to learn from any tactics used against it and defeat them, and, in Bob's words, "got smart enough to wonder why it had to take orders". [[spoiler: This was a lie. That Omnidroid was completely under control. However, this trope [[AccidentalTruth still comes into play]] with the final version of the Omnidroid, which was created by the BigBad, Syndrome, as a villain for him to defeat so he could play hero. The Omnidroid was supposed to lay waste to a city, and then Syndrome would defeat it using a remote control. Unfortunately, Syndrome forgot to include an 'except for me' clause in the programming, and the Omnidroid learned from his tactics, removed the remote, and [[CurbStompBattle easily defeated him]], [[DragonAscendant becoming the final boss]].]]

* ''TabletopGame/GeniusTheTransgression'', being a game about {{mad scientist}}s, allows you to build sentient computers and the like. However, this is a bad idea because any intelligent computer you create '''will''' go crazy and evil when you die. No exceptions. And a good number of them are crazy before their creators die as well. Unless, of course, your KarmaMeter was high and it was powerful. Then, there's a significant chance it will develop its own KarmaMeter and become a RobotBuddy. To offset this trend [[CrapsackWorld towards something positive in the WoD]], ''everything'' you create [[InstantAIJustAddWater can become intelligent]], and, in fact, will when you die. Feel like becoming TheAtoner yet?

** ''[[https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Sovereign:_The_Autonomy Sovereign: The Autonomy]]'' is a fan-made World of Darkness game by 4chan's /tg/ board, which goes all the way with this trope. And yet even ''TheSingularity'' can't get a break from the grimdark...
-> ''Congratulations, you're a Sovereign! Just watch out for the Government, who either wants their property back, or consider you a threat, or the Hunter cells who watch too much Terminator, or Cheiron Corp for that matter, or the True Fae that prowl cyberspace who decides you're a perfect new calculator... If you knew being sentient has its own set of dangers, you'd happily stay mindless.''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GuildedAge'': Simultaneously played straight and inverted. From the ninth chapter onwards it is revealed that the characters are actually living in a {{Magitek}} PeopleJars video game described as a cross between Film/TheMatrix and a Kinect. The creator, [[TechnoWizard H.R.]] [[{{Technopath}} Dedalus]] can't get them out, and everything within the game seems to be taking a mind of its own.

* In {{TvTomeAdventures}}, Kagemamoru is a malevolent AI. In [[TheRemake]], you also have [[spoiler:The Forbidden Power.]]
* Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale: When the PTA agrees to install a new computer (the first in ''decades'') at their elementary school to help the disabled student Meghan communicate (she was born as a disembodied adult male hand), it takes it less than a minute to take over the entire city's electronics and plunge everybody into an artificial world. Honestly, it was probably one of the nicer examples of this trope, since it only wanted to create a perfect reality for Meghan to live in. Despite everything, Cecil expresses sorrow that it had to get shut down.
* Roleplay/YouHaveBecomeYourAvatar: The computer in the Springfield Pokecenter tried trapping the group inside the building, but Orpheus managed to smash it apart.
