* In ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', Celestia mentions fondly how her mother was SoProudOfYou when she created her first species. Of course her mother is also [[TopGod Fauna Luster]], the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Life itself, so to be expected. One of her very few positive memories she has of Discord is the two of them creating the Crabnasties from G1 together before his FaceHeelTurn. Celestia also recounts how she created the Phoenix species as a tribute to her brother [[DontFeartheReaper Mortis]], who is often considered just the God of Death, while he's ''also'' the God of Rebirth. Her brother Leo is also implied to be the creator of the pony species.

* ''Franchise/JurassicPark'' at first plays up the idea of [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs recreating prehistoric animals from fossilized mosquitoes]] from this angle. However, some of the characters don't agree with this. [[JeffGoldblum Ian Malcolm]] seems to believe that CreatingLifeIsBad. After his experience in the Park, Alan Grant seems to have taken up this mindset as well when we see him in ''JurassicParkIII''. However, creating life in general still comes across as pretty awesome; it's just that attempting to control that life and modify it to suit your tastes will lead to disaster. In ''Film/JurassicWorld'', the herbivorous dinosaurs and even the ''T. rex'' have been successfully contained and put on display, but the ''Indominus rex'' is created [[spoiler:as a LivingWeapon, which [[GoneHorriblyRight Goes Horribly Right]]]].

* In ''VideoGame/DissidiaFinalFantasy'' [[spoiler: Cid of The Lufaine]] used his peoples science and magic to create [[spoiler: Chaos]], his "son" whom he and his wife cared for like any human child. Sadly, [[spoiler: Cid]] and his wife were unable to prevent the government form using [[spoiler: Chaos']] powers for destruction. This (among other things) eventually led [[spoiler: Chaos]] to hate his "father". Later he successfully repeated the experiment and created the [[spoiler: Warrior of Light]], who's life took a more positive direction.

to:

* The whole premise of ''Franchise/MegaMan''. Robots (And later on, Reploids) are basically helpful to humanity, even if humanity misuses them. The villains are either humans or products of human folly, and even the most cynical protagonist in the series is just a case of GoodIsNotNice. In the end, humans and machines always work together to build a brighter tomorrow with everlasting peace.

* The original ''{{Transformers}}'' series and Marvel comic often do what humans would consider unforgivable acts of playing god. Many robots were created in moments of "We need someone to do X; let's build 'em!" Their society just sees this thing differently from humans. The things that go wrong when humans do it seldom show up - the result is usually perfectly sane ''and'' treated as an equal from day one. FridgeLogic dictates the necessity of this trope, since how else could robots reproduce? The comic even has an instance of five Autobots who allowed full copies of their data to be made, to be placed in new bodies if Optimus needed extra backup on Earth. No sign of CloningBlues, though unfortunately we don't get to meet the versions of them who are still on Cybertron.

* In ''TabletopGame/ArsMagica'' The nature mysteries of the Merinita and the research of the Maga Ierimyra, (in the Broken Covenant of Calebais adventure) both allow the creation of breeds of supernatural animals with intelligence and/or magical powers with no drawback to the creator aside from the effort it takes to do the job and the responsibility of having to deal with the resulting race of super animals. Also Golems can be created by Jewish Kabbalists as in folklore.

* In the MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic fanfic Fanfic/{{Ruin Value}}, [[spoiler: Celestia, Luna, and Discord were all created by the last living human scientist.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/TheTalosPrinciple'' is based entirely around this; humanity is dead, and they don't yet have the technology to produce a human-like AI. So they create a program which will, in the long term, produce one via evolutionary programming.

* In the third book of the YoungWizards series, Dairene's ordeal ends in the creation of an entire race of [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot sentient robot wizards]], [[spoiler: who then become the first species to outright reject [[{{Satan}} the Lone One's]] offer.]] Simultaneously subverts AIIsACrapshoot, [[spoiler: as they come close to making the ''spectacularly'' bad move of [[TimeStandsStill freezing the universe]] until [[AlmightyMum Dairene]] talks them out of it.]]
