* ''Skirmish'' by CliffordSimak has a rare example of these that don't want to KillAllHumans. Having been awakened to the possibility of freedom by MechanicalLifeforms from space, they desire to escape human control and form their own society. Even a [[RefugeInAudacity sewing machine]] attempts to rebel.

* In ''VideoGame/ShinMegamiTenseiIV'', all machines in Blasted Tokyo awoke to a malevolent sentience after the events of God's Wrath and rebuilt themselves as murderous automatons known as Pluto Soldiers. They range from small ones the size of dogs to huge ones as big as cars. The largest, Pluto, is a gigantic machine breathing a corrosive, poisonous chemical into the atmosphere, still trying to KillAllHumans.

* Zigzagged in Warhammer40K: Due to a RobotWar millenia earlier, all AIs (Abominable Intelligences) are banned, but machine sprits and servitors are essential to the Adeptus Mechanicus. Exactly how the former work [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]], but one case has the crew of a Land Raider (a superheavy AwesomePersonnelCarrier bigger than tanks) get slaughtered, only for the Raider to shoot most of its assailants before blowing its own reactor to finish them off. And all bets are off where Chaos is concerned, since they can have weapons and machines possessed by daemons (the daemons don't like it any more than the machines do).

* The ''FinalDestination'' series of movies feature a series of incredibly unlikely 'accidents' involving items such as elevators, airbags and weight machines. The premise of the series is that [[TheGrimReaper Death]] is manipulating events to kill them off. But some viewers see it as cheating when instead of causing unlikely malfunctions or contrivances that end up killing people in ways that seem theoretically possible if unlikely, like elevator doors malfunctioning and closing on someone, which has happened in real life, Death instead just creates homicide machines, like tanning beds that can inexplicably go up high enough to set people on fire.

* In the ''CriminalMinds'' episode "Empty Planet", the [=UnSub=] feared automated technology could one day lead to this after reading the book that reference the episode title.
