* ''VideoGame/SystemShock 2'': not Shodan, she's consciously hostile, but The Many. They invite you to join their HiveMind as if that should be the most attractive invitation, oblivious to the insanity the BodyHorror of "joining" them has driven other humans into. A milder version would be the android assistant who attentively and helpfully approaches like a homing missile on legs.

* One of the oldest immortals on ''Series/HighlanderTheSeries'' seemed to fit this trope. A mentally disabled man who loved animals and his [[BloodBrothers brother]] Methos, [[PsychopathicManchild Silas was also War]] of the [[HorsemenOfTheApocalypse Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse]], someone who had spent centuries [[RapePillageAndBurn terrorizing the known world]] during the Bronze Age. He also probably didn't have the mental capacity to completely understand the morality of his actions or learn to change with the world around him.



* This is one of the most chilling aspects of ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. [[RobotGirl Cameron]] has a tendency to execute people or leave them to die when she has no further use for them, because her internal logic prioritizes her mission to protect John Connor above all else. In a few instances, she outright executes people whose only crime was to potentially endanger John's life; for example, she kills a trio of burglars who robbed the Connors' house because they had accessed their identification and financial information, but that information would allow someone else to track them down.
** Interestingly, it's often proven after the fact that Cameron made the right call. For example, Sarah is horrified when Cameron kills Enrique just because he ''might'' have been an informant, but a message left on Ellison's answering machine reveals that he was indeed an informant, and he was about to reveal the Connors' location to the FBI. And in the case of the burglars mentioned above, the one burglar that Sarah let live (without Cameron's knowledge) ended up leading Cromartie to them.

* Many of the apes in ''Franchise/PlanetOfTheApes'' didn't realize that the astronauts were sentient. [[spoiler: [[SubvertedTrope Except for the orangutans]], who are well aware of the human's intelligence, [[HumansAreBastards and the dangers of said intelligence.]]

** Brandon Stark unwittingly breaks almost every skinchanging taboo still remembered north of the Wall -- all of which are in place to avoid people like Varamyr Sixskins knowingly abusing their power and abusing not just other people, but the beasts used as hosts. Unlike with Varamyr, who knowingly becomes reviled and feared by chucking the rulebook into a metaphorical shredder, it's not exactly Bran's fault: nobody has ever taught him that rules even exist.

* ''EdnaAndHarveyHarveysNewEyes'' sets the stage early on, when Lilli inadvertently puts a fellow student in danger, and hears a scream. She returns to find the student "missing", but displays absolutely no interest in the motionless human-shaped lump nearby (which she perceives as covered in pink paint). As the game proceeds, that pink paint becomes a ''lot'' more common.

* The Ten Tailed Beast is stated to be a mindless entity of destruction in ''{{Naruto}}''. Even before it was revealed that it turns its helpless victims into Zetsu's, resurrecting it and using its Infinite Tsukuyomi technique was intended to imprison and MindRape an entire world with 'good dreams'. Madara and Obito never thought, not even once, that it'd be TooGoodToBeTrue and went through with the plan, the former for his own ego, the latter so he could experience the fantasy of Rin being back.

** Turns out this was basically a ThanatosGambit made by the previous Guardian of the entire Universe (who looked like a PaletteSwap of Fat Buu). When Buu was first created, the Guardian saw that he was too powerful to defeat with direct confrontation and so allowed Buu to absorb him so that his own purity and innocence would overwhelm the incredible malice and hatred the creature possessed(it also greatly reduced Buu's power) This is what made it possible for Mr. Satan to reason with him. When Super Buu "purifies" himself of everyone he's absorbed, he reverts back to Kid Buu, his weakest form, but dangerously more [[AxCrazy insane and malevolent]]. Unlike any of Buu's previous forms, he has no dialogue (no playful songs, no one-liners, no monologuing on his superiority) except for maniacal laughter as he kills people and blows up planets for fun.
