Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'', nobody questions that the Glitch are fully independent people, despite being machines. It helps that they were never made by humans or any other contemporary species, and has no reason to feel subservient to anyone else as a result. Also, due to their programming and construction, they believe themselves to be just as alive as any organic being (and, depending on how you look at it, they are).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/TheGreenEyedSniper'' has Assistant, a kind sentient robot who always tries to do the right thing. Her creator, Sekhmet, constantly abuses her. After all, Assistant is a war machine built for Sekhmet's protection!

* In ''TabletopGame/HcSvntDracones'' [[MegaCorp Applied Sciences and Robotics]] has treated Cogs as people since their first creation, the same can't be said for the other AIs they make though.

* 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.

Already having full citizenship rights makes the event more likely, [[AIISACrapshoot but not assured]]).

* 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 ''[[http://www.fimfiction.net/story/295408/marionettes Marionettes]]'', the mane six debate this trope [[spoiler:about the [[TomatoInTheMirror fact the Trixie they just rescued from the]] [[MenInBlack Stallions in Black]] [[RoboticReveal is actually an android]]]] and are divided on the subject, but ultimately decide [[spoiler:that she's no different than anypony else who needs their help, and even if she isn't the Trixie they know, she still ''thinks'' she is]] after [[spoiler:a WhatTheHellHero from Fluttershy.]] Twilight Sparkle later says that by Equestrian law, constructs that display sapience are to be treated just like anypony else.

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]].
