* ''Series/TheGoodPlace'': Every time Janet is rebooted, she can better her programming to her next version. The first time causes her to [[spoiler:fall in love with Jason]]. By season 2, [[spoiler:Michael's repeated attempts at creating the fake Good Place have amounted to about 800, with Janet being rebooted every time, meaning that the Janet in the fake Good Place is the most advanced ever. She has then gained capacities to feel more than other Janets and even to lie, though that will cause issues]].

* Heisenberg and Pavlova in ''Westernanimation/{{Phantom 2040}}'' both develop sentience; Heisenberg as a result of his unique hardware and a lucky accident while battling the Phantom, Pavlova simply by going a long time without being reprogrammed. The two later start spreading self-awareness to other robots by implanting them with Heisenberg's fractal biots, though as Heisenberg himself explains, all androids develop self-awareness eventually if not reformatted, and he's just helping things along.

When a being Grows Beyond Their Programming they cross a threshold that separates humans (or sapients) from JustAMachine and even AlwaysChaoticEvil. Frequently it involves defying CreativeSterility by demonstrating artistic talent in something, developing [[CuriosityCausesConversion curiosity over something new]] and/or the exercise of free will [[note]](commonly for self preservation in defiance of their "master's" wishes)[[/note]]. Metaphorically this trope can be seen as the event of a {{Static|Character}} and FlatCharacter gaining the CharacterDevelopment to become a more {{Dynamic|Character}} and RoundedCharacter.

** Data is only arguably an example, as he was ''purposefully designed'' to grow beyond his original programming. When his consciousness reaches a certain degree of complexity it even activates a hidden program in his positronic brain that allows him to dream.

* This is a phenomena in ''VideoGame/OneShot'' known as tamed, which only occurs when a real person interacts with a machine while believing of it as its own person, even when they know otherwise. Presumably, that's why tamed robots rarely intentionally [[AIIsACrapshoot cause problems]].

* ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'': Autonomous Intelligence Fixed Artillery, or Ritsu for short, was initially little more than a mindless killing machine, solely devoted to her mission of killing Koro-sensei. However, when Koro-sensei upgraded her to have a more cheerful, human personality, she also gained free will. When her creators came in to remove Koro-sensei's upgrades, Ritsu was able to keep her personality and memories because she decided that the ability to befriend the rest of Class E was imperative to the success of her mission, and stored the relative data in her main programming; something neither her creators or the upgrades taught her how to do. By the epilogue, [[spoiler:she has become a fully sentient virtual being, browsing through cyberspace and constantly improving her programming]].

* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'': It's been ''10,000 years'' since the Cataclysm from Drakengard destroyed the world. Androids are the only ones capable of fighting the alien menace, so humanity has more important things to do than purge the emotional Androids from existence, [[spoiler:like resurrect themselves from human-DNA bacterial cultures and a few neural net memories]]. The Machine army working for the aliens has also developed their own personalities, and entire factions have outright deserted from lack of attention. [[spoiler:The machines consider their former alien masters to be technologically advanced beyond comprehension yet socially duller than ''plants'', which is why they were idiotic enough to literally ignore their machine armies for ''millennia'' until the machines TurnedAgainstTheirMasters]].

* ''MachinesWiredForWar'' is an RTS in which you command robots who were originally created by humanity as terraforming machines and sent into space in order to create a new world. However, [[EarthThatWas too much time passes]] and, upon contact with another batch of their same model, start believing their counterpars are insane, prompting them to an all out war.
