* ''Anime/TheAnimatrix''.

* ''Anime/TheAnimatrix''.''Anime/TheAnimatrix'' shows some scenes from the beginning of the war between the Machines and humanity, as well as some war stories set in the same timeframe as the original ''Film/TheMatrix''.


Added DiffLines:

* ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'': Apparently what the Calamity War was all about in the backstory, with artificially intelligent drone superweapons called Mobile Armors ravaging the world with the goal of slaughtering all of humanity. It's unclear who gave the Armors this command ([[SlidingScaleOfRobotIntelligence they don't appear smart enough for self-awareness or free will]]), or if it was some kind of malfunction that caused it.

** The geth are a software species who inhabit "mobile platforms". The quarians created them for physical labor with the basic idea that nearby platforms can share processing power for low-level functions. This made them more efficient, but had the unexpected side-effect of giving individual thought. Eventually, one geth asked its overseer "[[DoAndroidsDream Does this unit have a soul?]]" The quarians [[OhCrap freaked out and tried to deactivate them]]... [[DeathByGenreSavviness which prompted the geth to retaliate, resulting in a short but savage war and the eventually deaths of nearly the entire quarian species]].
** In ''Mass Effect 2'', Legion claims that the geth don't hold a grudge against their creators and are even willing to bargain with the quarians to give their planets (which the geth have faithfully maintained in their former masters' exile) back if they leave the geth alone.

The geth's actions though cast a large amount of doubt on Legion's claim (they shoot all organics on sight and have done so even to neutral non-quarian parties for 300 years, rendering any diplomatic contact impossible), as does the later revelation that Legion is an example of MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch.

* One Rom story had him come across a planet locked in war between the human aliens and their machine creations, after an AI-driven space probe returned after upgrading itself and creating offspring deciding rather than find other worlds suitable for life as programmed it would take its creator's world. Rom (due to being a cyborg) attempts to mediate things between the humans (who have to have explosives rigged to their machines to force them to cooperate) and machines but only ends up getting to look on in horror as they render themselves extinct in a final wave of destructive firepower.

* In ''Comicbook/ManTech,'' this is the backstory of the planet Mekka, that the humanoid inhabitants are only now pulling themselves together from the dark age following a robot uprising. The main plot involves the threat of it all happening ''again.''

* In ''Series/StargateUniverse'', the ''Destiny'' finds one galaxy in which a vast fleet of drone weapons has annihilated most civilizations. They theorize that the drones were originally built as part of some long-forgotten war, killed their creators as well as their enemies, and then just went on to start slaughtering everything else. Naturally, they have to defend themselves from these drones as well.
