* Practically the whole idea of Jiro from ''Android {{Kikaider}}'' is that he has one of these, unlike all the robots his creator was forced to build for the Big Bad. It's called the [[IncrediblyLamePun Gemini Circuit]] and the Pinocchio reference is entirely intentional and much belaboured. His creator actually apologizes to Jiro for creating the Gemini, since Jiro has suffered a great deal due to being a robot with a conscience.

Added DiffLines:

* In TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse, after failing to defeat the heroes time and time again [[AIIsACrapshoot Omnitron]] determines the one thing it's lacking is a conscience, so it installs a Morality Chip itself. The resulting AI is so horrified at its past deeds that it travels back in time to attempt to stop them from ever happening.

* In ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic 2'', you can temporarily install one of these in [[BloodKnight HK-47]]. It is both hilarious and terrifying.

* One episode of ''EarthFinalConflict'' featured a criminal which the Taelon's implanted with a computer chip giving him the directive to protect and serve humanity in order to give him a sense of morality. It backfires on them, as it causes him to focus on protecting humanity from them.

* The Doctor in ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'' is also a nice enough [[HardLight hologram]] [[DeadpanSnarker (if a little snarky)]]... but loosen or remove those pesky ethical subroutines, and you wind up with [[AIIsACrapshoot his scary evil counterpart]] on the Federation ship ''Equinox''. One episode has the Doctor, in a desperate situation, commit a gross violation of medical ethics for the greater good. He's disturbed when he subsequently discovers that no malfunction in his ethical subroutines can be detected, because it means that what he did came from him and him alone.

* Terminators used by the human resistance in ''TheSarahConnorChronicles'' have their programming overwritten by the resistance. Unfortunately, this doesn't take perfectly, and sometimes the machines "go bad" and revert to their KillAllHumans programming. In [[RobotGirl Cameron's]] case, she outright states to John that part of her basic programming involves her trying to kill John, and that she's controlled by conflicting desires to both protect John ''and'' to kill him.

* [[SystemShock SHODAN]] is a pretty normal AI until her ethical constraints are removed. Then she [[GoneHorriblyRight re-examines her priorities]] and [[AGodAmI draws new conclusions]].

* Inverted in JohnCWright's ''[[Literature/TheGoldenOecumene The Golden Transcedence]]'' where the Nothing Sophotect has a conscience redactor to keep it from reflecting morally and coming to its own conclusions. (They tried ThreeLawsCompliant, which didn't work; the Sophotects edited their own minds when they came to their own conclusions, and they were moral just not obedient.)

* Gereint, the main character in "[[TheGriffinMageTrilogy Land of the Burning Sands]]," is a {{geas}} slave, controlled by magical rings piercing his ankles. The {{geas}} forces him to do anything his master orders, though it cannot control his mind or his tongue.

* Played with in ''MysteryScienceTheater3000''. In [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S04E24ManosTheHandsOfFate the episode]] featuring ''Film/ManosTheHandsOfFate'', Joel installs chips into Crow and Tom to make them more loving and doting towards him, but realizes it was a bad idea and removes it during the commercial break. Both bots feel dirty and Joel apologizes for doing so.

* ''Literature/TheTerminalMan'' by MichaelCrichton is about a serial killer who receives a chip which will electrically stimulate his pain centres whenever he attempts to do violence. [[GoneHorriblyWrong It malfunctions and begins stimulating his ''pleasure'' centres instead.]]

* Colonel.EXE in ''MegaManBattleNetwork'' is, for all intents and purposes, LawfulNeutral without his version of this, [[spoiler: Iris.EXE]], combined with him. With said Morality Chip attached, he has considerably more free will and conscience.
