* In ''WreckItRalph'', the Cy-Bugs are referred to as a virus, as they mindlessly consume and spread, whereas other programs recognize that they are in a game.

Copies of an AI will often be networked into a HiveMind.

See CloneByConversion and GrandTheftMe for versions that may apply to organic beings.

HiveMind. In case the AI creates itself an avatar, it may look like MonstrousGerms - since that is how people picture "viruses".

*[[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 Warhammer 40k]] has these in Scrapcode viruses, which vary in terms of being true AI or not (some are old Men of Iron AIs that rebelled against humanity, some are chaotic Daemon programs and some just extremely advanced regular programs) but have pretty much this effect. The greatest one was the Death of Innocence that ravaged Mars during the Horus Heresy, devastating a majority of the planet (which was [[CityPlanet entirely devoted to technology and manufacturing)]], aside from a select few protected cities when the Dark Mechanicum began their rebellion. Mars has still not fully recovered ten thousand years later, and the insane survivors of the attack still lurk in the deepest catacombs along with the relics of [[CrapsackWorld another dozen apocalypses]].
** The Mechanicum army list has the Contagium Mechanica Relic, which is one of these carried by interface nanytes and used like a gun by the Magos commanding it. It inflicts a painful but survivable hit on an enemy vehicle, which next turn will itself hit each vehicle nearby, friend or foe, which themselves become infected and spread the virus. If fired early in a standard six-turn game, it can easily devastate most of an enemy mechanized army. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Or your own, if you misjudge the infection distance.]] Use with caution or a significant amount of insane laughter.

** It's later [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2017-01-18 clarified]] that the majority of AIs are confined to their original hardware, though the personality matrix can be transplanted into a new chassis. The version of Tagii in Ennesby's head was something like a cross between a LivingMemory and [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2017-01-19 a sapient brain tumor]].

* A variation of this trope occurs in the game ''SwordOfTheStars'', as described on the [[AllThereInTheManual game's wiki]] in the article on [[http://sots.rorschach.net/Via_Damasco AI Rebellion]]. A strange virus, the Via Damasco, begins to turn AI-controlled ships against their masters with ships becoming infected after receiving a transmission from an already-infected ship. Apparently, the anti-virus is "administered" the same way.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, The Palm is a sentient computer virus that is as smart as the man who created it. In fact, it now may ''be'' the man who created it. And it has found a way of killing people and replacing their brains with a computer so it can pass as human.
* There is a v-life faction in ''[[OrionsArm Orion's Arm]]'' that goes around "freeing" [=AIs=] or upgrading computers to the level of sentience.
