* The approach to this trope is one of the biggest differences between the comic and animated versions of ''TransformersGeneration1.'' In the animated series, it's immediately clear to all human eye witnesses that one faction of the alien robots is trying to defend them from the other faction, so the Autobots become well-respected allies almost right away. In the comic series (since MarvelComics would scarcely be Marvel Comics without FantasticRacism), the distinction between the two sides is much less clear to the humans, so all Transformers are treated with hostility. [[note]] The continual inability of the Autobots to communicate this fact to Earth's governments, and the inability of Earth's governments to recognize something that should have been fairly obvious, tended to make for a lot of [[IdiotBall Idiot Balls]] getting tossed back and forth.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', one possible way to prevent an AI rebellion in the late-game is to simply give sentient AI full citizenship rights. This will make them no more troublesome than any of your other citizens, though if your citizens are Spiritualist, they may not be too thrilled with the idea. Also, it isn't 100% foolproof: if the rebellion is sufficiently strong and advanced enough, even your loyal AI citizens will start plotting a rebellion.

With the world continuing to shift to being Pro-Artificial Life due to the increasing use of technology in our lives, there's no wonder that this trope is being used more and more in modern works. Take, for example, the evolution of the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. The first movie showed all [[AIIsACrapshoot A.I.]] as {{Killer Robot}}s, while the sequels and spin-offs show that the eponymous [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Terminators]] may in fact be people too, at least when not under the control of [[MasterComputer Sky-Net]].

* The {{Tron}} universe goes bonkers with this. While the films, games, and ''TronUprising'' series use the Programs' [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman non-human status]] and peculiar way of dying as a form of BloodlessCarnage (and a way to [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar depict some extremely violent and disturbing scenes]] in a {{Creator/Disney}} franchise), in-universe depictions portray the Programs and Isos as being every bit as alive and sentient as the Users who made them.
