* ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'': The future John Connor reprogrammed a captured T-800 and sent it back in time to protect his younger self from a more advanced Skynet-programmed terminator.
* ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'': In this timeline the future John Connor was actually killed by a T-850 model after Skynet's presumed defeat. John's widow Kathryn Brewster then reprogrammed it and sent it back in time to save a 20s-something John from another attack by an even more advanced Terminator model.
* Flynn hacks a guard program in ''Film/TronLegacy''.
** The ''darker'' take on this, of course, is Clu's [[{{Brainwashing}} "rectification"]] procedure, and [[{{Tron}} Master Control's]] [[TheAssimilator "assimilation"]] before that.
* Pretty indispensable in ''Film/{{Robot}}''.
