* ''SpockMustDie'': in this early StarTrek novel, a machine used by the Klingons to suppress the Organians has the side effect of creating a mirror version of Spock, right down to the molecular level. Curiously, this biological mirroring also reverses Spock's allegiance, making him a Klingon agent.

* In ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' two parter "Equinox", the ''Equinox'' crew shut down the EMH's ethical subroutines, making him quite happy to torture Seven, [[FauxAffablyEvil while trying to continue the conversation they were having before]].
* In the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Tikka to Ride", Lister deactivates Kryten's morality chip. This is purely to make him go along with a plan to misuse time travel in the pursuit of curry, but it leads to Kryten doing a number of other immoral things, such as [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies cooking a human body and feeding it to his biological crewmates]]. It doesn't seem to have a noticeable effect on his general behaviour, though.

* ''{{Bionicle}}'': The evil scientist Makuta, Mutran, created mutant Shadow Leeches so that they can drain a target's moral light. Takanuva was partially affected, but still retained his moral self and the additional powers over shadow. Fortunately, all those affected were cured by the screech of a bat-like Klakk

** Later Doofenshmirtz builds an "Ultimate-Turn-Everything-Evil-inator" to try to turn Major Monogram evil, but accidentally hits [[TheIntern Carl]] instead. Given that Carl instead.is the one who actually ''does'' things in the O.W.C.A. while Monogram just issues orders, [[FromNobodyToNightmare this turns out to be worse]].


Added DiffLines:

** One last one, from ''PhineasAndFerbStarWars:'' "Darthenshmirtz" creates a Sith-inator, which was actually designed to just make himself more evil and powerful. [[OhCrap Instead, it hits Ferb]].

* ''CareBears Adventures in Care-a-Lot'': Grizzle accidentally created one of these. He sent a robot with an Eraser Ray down to Care-a-Lot to get rid of the Care Bears' belly badges, but instead, the ray flipped the badges, making the bears only care about [[PlanetOfHats their personality trait]], causing them all to fight with each other instead of getting along.

* Played with on ''TheMentalist''. When Patrick Jane's former psychiatrist asks for his help, he and the CBI agents investigate a murder at a college campus. Jane meets with a group of researchers who are investigating human morality by testing a machine on human subjects. The machine sends impulses to the morality center of the brain, which the researchers believe will turn "evil" on and off at their discretion. Jane finds out that the results have been falsified, and the machine does nothing. This was done to keep the truth from the head researcher so that he will keep funneling money into the university. Jane's gambit near the end is to make the team believe that they have succeeded. Jane's psychiatrist friend uses the machine on him to turn him evil, but doesn't turn him back, so when Jane takes a gun and confronts the chancellor of the university, everyone not in on the con believes that he will kill because he has no morality to keep him from doing it. He shoots his friend (with blanks, of course), causing the murderer to confess in a panic.
