* This is the war the titular city of ''{{Mortasheen}}'' is fighting against the genocidal technophiliac civilization of Wreathe. Subverted in that Wreathe's robots are under human control, fighting the monstrous inhabitants of Mortasheen and [[spoiler: the supercomputer that really runs the show in Wreathe is very, very pro-human]]

* ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' has this as its conflict. On one side, we have the Androids (and the [=YoHRa=] Units specifically), RidiculouslyHumanRobots and the machine lifeforms, less human-looking machines created by aliens. The Androids want to repel the invading machine lifeforms so that humanity can repopulate the planet after being driven to the moon. The machine lifeforms were designed to study humanity but were eventually driven to fight the Androids. One of the themes of this game is how NotSoDifferent the two types of Automata are.

** A rather strange one is in the backstory, [[InvertedTrope one in which the humans of Earth rose against their robots and computers]] when they started regulating ''everything'' on Earth applying some faulty logic (the flashback shows that the straw that broke the camel's back was a combination of a guy getting his rations reduced because in the last week he had been sick and unable to work as usual and weddings suspended for seven months and fourteen days because 7.8% of the population was married), untul the Earthers got pissed, grabbed their sledgehammers and destroyed the offending computers;
** Still in the backstory but later, a doctor Shibas proposed to create ''new'' computers to rule mankind and avoid the rise of dictators (like the ones who had caused WorldWarIII) and program them better, but, due what happened the last time, he's laughed off-planet. He moved on Yama with the intent of proving to mankind he's right by building a robot-controlled utopia there and started building a base and some worker robots, and tried to help the humans marooned on the neighbouring DeathWorld Apis by taking some of them on Yama and having his robots help them build a city so that the whole population would be able to move. Then the construction crew destroyed one of his labs [[InsaneTrollLogic because he wasn't helping them with his own hands but building robots that did a better job]], at which point he decided to build ''combat'' robots to overpower the construction crew and subjugate them and the ones remained on Apis, and built what would become the Great Computer so that he would continue his work and [[WellIntentionedExtremist better the lives of all humans]], [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans even if he had to subjugate them with military power first]]. When they first met peoples of other worlds they still had doubts on the best course of action, but then they met [[AlwaysChaoticEvil the Cassiopeians]] and their ruler, [[GloriousLeader the general Pest]], [[WellIntentionedExtremist and decided that if the humans couldn't take care of him then they needed to be conquered and ruled by the machines]]... And duped the Cassiopeians in making them produce warships, thus gaining the knowledge they needed to design their own ''better'' warships (including a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin planet killer]]) and conquer the universe, starting from the Cassiopeians. To his defence, the Great Computer trying to learn ''how'' to rule humans well (because he realizes he's not doing a good job with Apis), and in battle he tries to scare the enemy into submission by showing up with an overwhelmingly superior force to kill as few humans as possible;

* The {{backstory}} of ''SpaceAboveAndBeyond'' is that a rebellion by android "Silicates" has left humanity short on labor, forcing them to grow "[[ArtificialHuman In Vitros]]" or "tanks" to take up the slack, resulting in social friction. The Silicates revolted due to a corrupting virus which caused them to "take a chance."

* ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' twists the usual robot war on its head with the Vex. The Vex are immensely powerful, mostly mechanical but partly organic machines who control technology that lets them manipulate space-time. The Vex, however, are largely defensive, focusing on protecting their great reality-twisting machinery, while it is the human Guardians that relentlessly attack them to disrupt their plans to convert entire planets into new machines or devise technologies to rewrite reality. In addition, there is a conventional war ongoing, but it isn't between humans and the Vex, but rather, the Vex and invading [[SpaceRomans Cabal]], who are also intent on plundering the Vex's technology, and the two are engaging in an endless war of attrition on Mars.
