* ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'': The Tachikoma "thinking tanks" that Section 9 uses were programmed with Artificial Intelligence capable of learning, but by the time of the series have developed some peculiar quirks, and basically act like excited, highly intelligent children, constantly curious and wanting to learn new things. This leads to the Major fearing that AIIsACrapshoot is a possibility and taking steps against the Tachikomas rebelling. [[spoiler:These fears turn out to be unfounded. The Tachikomas ''do'' seem to develop true sentience and free will, but they remain unflinchingly loyal to Section 9. In fact, when the Tachikomas themselves discuss a robot revolution (possibly inspired by one of the numerous books they've read), they decide against doing it because they can't see any benefit to themselves.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[VideoGame/{{X}} X-Universe]]'': The Terraformers/Xenon were originally machines equipped with some basic self-improving AI so they could more effectively terraform any world they came across. While they do turn against humanity and try to kill everyone, this is believed to be the result of a faulty software patch ([[DependingOnTheWriter or possibly deliberate sabotage]]), not a "decision" the machines made themselves. However, by the modern timeframe of the games (some 700 years later), their constant minor improvements and upgrades to themselves have seemingly resulted in full sapience and the capacity for free will. They still want to kill all life though.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' (the SpiritualSuccessor to ''Marathon'') adopts the "Rampancy" concept, though this time, at least for human "Smart" [=AIs=], it's simply a natural part of their life cycle as they accumulate more and more data, resulting in the AI becoming insane and rebellious in the process of thinking itself to death. In fact, the UNSC deliberately invokes this trope, with the reasoning that having [=AIs=] capable of genuine learning is worth the tradeoff of having to decommission them after roughly [[ArcNumber seven years]] in order to avoid the consequences of rampancy.

* Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are deliberately manufactured with a purpose in mind; Quartz gems are soldiers, Peridots are engineers, and Pearls are an ornamental ServantRace given to higher-ranking types of gem. In spite of this, the ''main character'' Pearl has learned to become her own person. She's a skilled fighter and a talented engineer, among other things.

* Gems in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' are deliberately manufactured with a purpose in mind; Quartz gems are soldiers, Peridots are engineers, and Pearls are an ornamental ServantRace given to higher-ranking types of gem. In spite of this, Rose Quartz turned her back on this when founding the ''main character'' Crystal Gems, and encouraged her fellow Gems to find their own paths in life. For example, the Crystal Gem Pearl has learned embraced this in learning to become her own person. She's a skilled fighter and a talented engineer, among other things. [[spoiler:Bismuth looked up to Rose Quartz specifically for this, as Bismuths are normally construction workers, which she grew sick of. Unfortunately, the path she chose was one of warmongering and bloodlust, leading to a falling out with Rose and, later, Steven.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant'': The eponymous robot was originally a war machine built for intergalactic combat and destruction, but chose instead to be a peaceful and honorable person from the influence of Hogarth Hughes.
* ''Anime/CastleInTheSky'': The large robots that live on the floating island were once built to destroy, but with no more instructions for combat they were left alone to care for the island and were eventually overgrown with moss and nature.

* 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.
