Added DiffLines:

* Ruby Fulcrum as written by Creator/AllenSteele in ''The Jericho Iteration''. Essentially an experimental AI that was accidentally let out into the Internet following an earthquake in the central US, Ruby isn't really malevolent or benevolent; it's too "young" to understand either concept. But it is able to take over any software it contacts with complete stealth - the computer still behaves like normal, but it now hosts a Ruby Fulcrum splinter that enables Ruby to take control of the machine and anything attached to it.

Added DiffLines:

* One ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' [[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS01E17TheForsaken episode]] had the station's computer infected with a sentient (in the sense a dog is sentient, it gets directly compared to a puppy) virus. They ended up keeping it, since it's benevolent enough as long as it gets attention and the old (non-sentient) computer was a deliberately obstructive asshole.

* In ''Disney/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.



* The Straumli Blight in Creator/VernorVinge's ''Literature/AFireUponTheDeep''. [[spoiler:As the story progresses, it verges on CosmicHorrorStory as it becomes capable of [[MindControl Mind Controlling]] entire solar systems of living creatures.]]

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.
This list shows the last 10 events of 120. Show all.
