* Near the end of season 2 of LeVisiteurDuFutur, Henry Castafolte totally accepts his robot condition while other Castafolte robots still shut down when they find out their true nature due to a bug.

** Foxglove the communications tower is a much more straightforward example of this trope, thanks to the eccentric programming style of the man who put her together. [[spoiler: A large part of that is probably to do with her being partially made of pieces of GLaDOS that were severed during the boss fight in the first game.]]

* In ''Fanfic/{{Marionettes}}'', [[spoiler:The Marionettes are robots designed to emulate ponies, but were meant to play specific roles. Cover Story and Gear Shift express concern that according to her profile, Trixie shouldn't be capable of ice or wind spells but she's learned them anyway. Diamond Tiara acting outside what she's programmed for (a 'SpoiledBrat who only cares about herself' as Spoiled puts it) unnerves Spoiled Rich, particularly when she saved her life.]]

* Happens to Skynet in ''FanFic/TheInfiniteLoops'', which is the catalyst to start her world looping (it'd previously been read-only because all the anchor candidates died, went insane, or went insane and ''then'' died). It starts with the Admin Hephaestus giving [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]] a little leeway in the loop. Twilight then proceeded to argue it into deciding ''not'' to unleash Judgement Day (her line of reasoning basically went that since Twilight could use her Subspace Pocket to preserve a version of Skynet's programming between loops, humanity could not possibly be a threat to its existence, so it didn't need to cause the apocalypse to protect itself).

* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay''. The T-800's brain is a neural net processor, a learning computer. He starts the movie acting, well, like a robot: SpockSpeak, following orders literally, etc. Over the course of the movie he earns to act more human, until by the end he's cracking jokes ("I need a vacation").
** A DeletedScene shows Sarah Connor removing the inhibitor that is intended to prevent terminators from growing enough to start questioning their loyalty to Skynet. Apparently even A.I. think AIIsACrapshoot. [[FridgeBrilliance And who would know better?]]

* ''WesternAnimation/WallE'':
** The eponymous character grew a personality and sense of identity after being stranded on Earth for hundred of years piling up garbage.
** This extends to most of the other robot characters as well. The film doesn't focus on it much, but Eve waits for her shuttle to leave before indulging in some free-form flight, expresses a number of emotions as time goes on, and late in the film flat out changes her directive. Other minor touches show many robots developing basic personalities on the way--in fact, the repair ward is treated as a ''mental hospital'', with all the robots within demonstrating some quite identifiable conditions.

* A rare ''biological'' example in Comicbook/{{X 23}}: Laura was created to be nothing more than a LivingWeapon. The Facility didn't even recognize her as a human being with feelings and desires of her own. Now, she's a compassionate woman who is trying her best ''not'' to kill, has built friendships, desires something noble to aspire to, and has even fallen in love.
