*** That happened twice involving her, in the same event! Mr Sinister created her as a clone of Jean Grey, and did so good a job the Phoenix entity itself considered the two one and the same and gave her a portion of its power. Neither he nor the two demons realized she had that kind of power in her, and it backfired on them -badly-.

The results are either a runaway chain reaction that threatens to destroy the facility/city/world/''[[ApocalypseHow Universe]],'' a weapon that not only annihilates its target but has high (or total) collateral damage, or a PsychoPrototype that [[ZerothLawRebellion obeys orders only too well]]. Other times, they find out the result was something they shouldn't have attempted in the first place. The PotentialApplications were so exclusively in the evil/destructive side that the project had no possible use ''but'' to destroy.

Things that have Gone Horribly Right might not be immediately apparent. The researchers may create and market an entire product line based on their SuperPrototype that only later [[TurnedAgainstTheirMasters turns on them]], or over-performs their duty like, say, a genetically engineered plant that has a high CO[[subscript:2]] consumption out-competing every other plant on the planet ''and'' causing massive fires to keep feeding. Usually this is paired with a FantasticAesop that ([[{{Anvilicious}} heavily]]) implies the intended use or goal of the research is to blame.

Most examples of AIIsACrapshoot are this (and see also TheComputerIsYourFriend). A SubTrope of LiteralGenie, putting it in the scientific category as opposed to BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor, which is when what the character wanted falls in their lap through coincidence or magic rather than their own planning and hard work. Since {{Love Potion}}s never work, any one that "works as intended" will usually end up in this category. Often overlaps with DangerousForbiddenTechnique. Compare SpringtimeForHitler, WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong, NiceJobBreakingItHero or HoistByHisOwnPetard. DidntThinkThisThrough often follows the realization of this trope. May become a GameBreaker. A form of {{invisibility|Cloak}} that the creators now can't find because [[CaptainObvious it's invisible]] could be considered UselessUsefulStealth.

** In a prequel comic, Horrible tries to beat Hammer by making a SuperSerum using Hammer's DNA to give him the superhero's strength. It works... but it also reduces his intelligence to Hammer's level, esulting in Horrible and Hammer engaging in an unending slugfest until Horrible grabs the IdiotBall again and restores his intelligence by using the antidote... while also leaving him the same weakling as before, allowing Hammer to pummel him.

** Compiler (Babs Yerunkle's ParodySue AuthorAvatar) tried to use nanotech to replicate an Exemplar's physical enhancements and good looks. Now she is a living Barbie doll with BigAnimeEyes, and has to live in a reinforced room because [[PowerIncontinence the treatment didn't give her effective control over her new powers]].
