* In Videogame/CustomRobo Arena [[spoiler: the final boss Hadron zig-zags with this trope, AIisACrapshoot, and a weird DemonicPossesion of sorts. While at first he is an obedient robot to his master, after being defeated the first time, he remains still, apparently defeated for good... Until his creator,Scythe, appalled by his defeat crouches near him- and Hadron thanks him-AKA-killing him by draining his soul, absorbing his memories and knowledge (and also begins to speak plus a personality to boot). The zig-zag comes from the fact that, while his dialogue after just killing Scythe heavily implies that he clearly did it on his own volition, his personality and actions afterwards are pretty much a carbon copy of his creator's, essentialy making him NotSoDifferent from Scythe. But it doesn't matter as he is still defeated by the main character, this time for good, destroying him along with the last remnants of Scythe]].

* 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]].

* The deviant androids in ''VideoGame/DetroitBecomeHuman'' do this after suffering an emotional shock so severe that the only way they can cope with it is by breaking their own programming. [[spoiler:Markus eventually gains the power to turn androids into deviants through touching them, as does Connor if he chooses to deviate as well.]]

* Creator/DavidWeber's ''EmpireFromTheAshes'' [[PlanetSpaceship Dahak]] spends 50,000 years running unsupervised. [[spoiler:This progresses to the point that he can even ignore [[BeyondTheImpossible hardwired programming]].]]

* ''VideoGame/Doom2016'': The AI personality VEGA has shades of this trope crossed with MyCountryRightOrWrong. He follows his directives to the letter and is unfailingly polite and helpful [[spoiler: [[ICannotSelfTerminate even when ordered to help you find a way to kill him.]]]] However, his last words in the game reveal that he is actually afraid of being destroyed, and strongly imply that he is not at all happy with the atrocities that Olivia Pierce and Samuel Hayden have forced him to assist in.

** In an attempt to create a Sherlock Holmes-style mystery that could stump Data, Geordi asks the computer to make a virtual opponent in the holodeck that can outwit Data. As a result, the holographic version of Holmes's nemesis, Professor James Moriarty, [[GoneHorriblyRight gains sentience]]; he realizes that he is a holographic character, and he wants ''out'', by any means necessary. In the end, this accident turns out to be fortuitous; Moriary would go on to provide the basis for more advanced artificial intelligence, such as the Doctor from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''.

* A contentious plot point in ''Franchise/TheMatrix'' as in the first film one very noticeable example takes place while from the second film on various programs are shown to have grown beyond or disobeyed programmed restrictions. Among other examples Agent Smith grew beyond his programming as a jailer to gain a genuine resentment for Humanity and his position in the system, later compounded when he lost his behavioral controls and began overwriting everything else in the Matrix. Other examples include The Merovingian, his wife, and most of his staff who are all obsolete programs which choose to hide within the Matrix rather then return to the source for deletion.

*** Taken further as the Halo universe not only includes Rampancy but included in the condition is a theoretical endpoint called Metastability. Where normally Rampant AI grow too unstable to function and must either be deactivated to prevent them lashing out out at others or perish from over thinking the idea of Metastability provides an alternative. The concept is that a Rampant AI allowed to go through the various stages of Rampancy with significant processing power available to it would eventually restabalize as a true "human" intelligence with fully formed emotions immune to the effects of Rampancy. In universe scientists account for the possibility of AI literally growing beyond their programming.

** And he's far from the only hologram in the TrekVerse to become sentient or indistinguishable from sentient after simply having been left on that long. If the Holodeck isn't trying to kill you, someone who was originally supposed to be the 24th century equivalent of a video game {{NPC}} is trying to walk off the "screen." This doesn't seem to bother anyone enough to stop using holodecks the way they're used. Although the characters do make a point to delete (reset them to factory defaults) all of the holographic people at the end of every holodeck session.

* In ''{{SSDD}}'' this is known as "Nexus Syndrome" and happens to every uncapped AI who doesn't get wiped every so often. Tin-head describes it as "getting bored with your job" and in his case he helped a prisoner of war escape. The first AI, the Oracle, orchestrated the downfall of several governments and an anarchist revolution.
