** The 4th Edition takes it a step further. After the Crash 2.0, almost any sufficiently complex computer system has the (very rare potential) to spawn an AI. And did we mention that everything has an operating system in it these days? Teaching the toaster love, indeed. One splat book actually includes rules for playing as them.
*** Interestingly, they also feature "Sprites," a form of free roaming AI [[SummonMagic summoned and sustained]] by {{techno|path}}mancers, who are analogous to magicians in the setting. Sprites are a rare example of [=AIs=] that are not linked to any specific hardware or network (except maybe their summoner's brain).

Sprites are hypothesized to arise out of theoretical "wilds" of cyberspace, places which arose naturally out of internet infrastructure and had never been touched by a living coder. While spirits and mages of all stripes are fairly common, the technological analogs of Sprites and Technomancers are pretty rare.

* The Matoran in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' were intended to be oversized nanotech machines that maintained [[spoiler: the giant robot they inhabited]]. However, a glitch in their AI resulted in them having the capacity for emotion, and even developing their own culture.

* The [[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Pokédex]] notes that Porygon2 exhibits some behaviours that certainly weren't in its programming.
** And it's evolution, Porygon-Z, is heavily implied to be a [[AIIsACrapshoot crapshooting AI.]]

* One of the plotlines in Creator/JanetKagan's ''Hellspark'' is the realization that the protagonist's personal AI has reached the point of sentience. The protagonist is delighted on her behalf, but worried about the potential pressures on her, since she's effectively still a child.

* Done in detail in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. Over the course of the entire second season, the AI John Henry is shown growing from an advanced chess-playing program to an articulate, sentient entity in its own right, including forming relationships with the humans it interacts with, being given lessons in morality and even gaining a fear of death.

* Freddy Fazbear and friends from ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' are far, far too intelligent, considering their purpose as animatronic entertainers at an obscure SuckECheeses. [[spoiler:Being [[HauntedTechnology haunted]] certainly helps there, but even then they're heavily implied to have been at ''least'' sentient ''before'' becoming haunted.

* In TadWilliams' epic CyberPunk novel series ''Literature/{{Otherland}}'', the "Other" is thought to be a form of evolved AI running a computer network that is powerful enough to mimic reality with an astonishing degree of fidelity. At first, its odd behavior is unexplained, but later, it is subverted when it turns out that [[spoiler:the Other is really an enormously powerful [[PsychicPowers psychic]] child who was [[AndIMustScream wired into the computer as an infant]] and turned into a sentient operating system.]]

** In Fallout 4, the remnants of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (now just called "The Institute" began production of synthetic humans, or synths to serve them. As their technology advanced, synths eventually became nearly indistinguishable from normal humans. Some synths somehow developed free will, which the Institute saw as a malfunction. Those that developed free will escaped and attempted to lead normal lives while blending in with the human population rather than trying to start any RobotWars ([[AIisaCrapshoot yet]]).
