* Pelinal Whitestrake from ''TheElderScrolls'' is (according to WordOfGod) either a cyborg or a robot that is pretty much an {{Expy}} of ''Film/TheTerminator'' who was sent back in time by the goddess Kyne to kill elves. He was a [[FantasticRacism genocidal racist]] who happened to be on the same side as Saint Alessia during the revolt against the [[OurElvesAreBetter Ayleids]], and as a result was given a major case of HistoricalHeroUpgrade. He was also prone to fits of [[TheBerserker berserker rage]] that resulted in large chunks of Tamriel being sent to the void, which only the gods themselves could calm him down from.

He was a [[FantasticRacism genocidal [[LongDeadBadass legendary 1st Era hero]] of mankind/[[FantasticRacism racist]] who happened to be on the same side as Saint Alessia during the revolt against the [[OurElvesAreBetter Ayleids]], and as a result was given a major case of HistoricalHeroUpgrade.

Believed to have been a [[EternalHero Shezarrine]], [[GodInHumanForm physical incarnations]] of Tamriel being sent the spirit of the [[GodIsDead "dead" creator god]] Lorkhan (known to the void, Imperials as "[[IHaveManyNames Shezarr]]"), Pelinal came to [[FounderOfTheKingdom St. Alessia]] to serve as her [[PhysicalGod divine champion]] in the war against the [[AbusivePrecursors Ayleids]]. Pelinal would fly into fits of UnstoppableRage (''mostly'' directed at the Ayleids) during which he [[BloodSplatteredWarrior would be stained with their blood]] and [[PaintTheTownRed left so much carnage in his wake]] that Kyne, one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Divines]], would have to [[CueTheRain send in her rain]] to cleanse Ayleid forts and village before they could be used by Alessia's forces. According to WordOfGod, Pelinal was a cyborg (heavily based on ''Film/TheTerminator'') plucked from the future by Kyne to answer Alessia's prayers. This both explains his plate armor, which at the time only the gods themselves [[OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame Dwemer]] could calm him down from.craft, and potentially his psychopathic tendencies. To quote the ''Song of Pelinal'':
--> ''"... [And then] Kyne granted Perrif another symbol, a diamond soaked red with the blood of elves, [whose] facets could [un-sector and form] into a man whose every angle could cut her jailers and a name: PELIN-EL [which is] "The Star-Made Knight" [and he] was arrayed in armor [from the future time]. And he walked into the jungles of Cyrod already killing, Morihaus stamping at his side froth-bloody and bellowing from excitement because the Pelinal was come..."''

** Roberto attacks people and commit crime at complete random, seemingly lacking any self-control whatsoever. He claims that the engineers who created him ''wanted'' him to be criminally insane. "But it seems... they failed!" "Um, actually - ''(stabbed)''"

* Doctor Who has featured more than its fair share of these over the years. Notable examples include the Kandyman, the Raston Warrior Robot, the various robots at the Game Station, the Skovox Blitzer, and the titular automatons from "The Robots of Death".

* ''Series/MiraiSentaiTimeranger'' has Gien [[spoiler:who [[WasOnceAMan was once a boy]] whose roboticization [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul caused him to become insane]]]], who had a love for destruction that he considered a "hobby". His insanity grew throughout the series to the point that he killed his boss, Doniero, and attempted to cause the end of everything as a self-proclaimed God of Destruction.

* ''JLA'' had Kid Amazo, a college student who found out he was actually a superpowered android created by T.O Morrow. Even before this discovery, he was already showing signs of psychopathy, and he went off the deep end completely after a few half-hearted attempts at being a hero.


Added DiffLines:

* ''SamuraiJack'' had this be the case with almost ''all'' the enemies Jack fought over the course of the series, due to broadcast standards requiring anyone Jack killed to be a robot, or at the very least, an alien. While some robots, such as the Beetleborgs or the X-Series (aside from X-9) simply follow their programming with no capacity for emotion, most others are needlessly cruel and sadistic. Notable cases are the Ultra-Bots (who massacred three villages in incredibly gruesome ways before Jack stopped them), The Ninja from "Jack Vs The Ninja" and the unnamed bounty hunters seen throughout the series.
** Averted in season 5 with PsychoElectro The Dominator, who just turns out to be a sadistic human in a power suit.

* ''Film/RoboCop2'': [=RoboCain=] is a giant armored robot with the brain of an AxCrazy criminal put inside it. Obviously, this makes it an uncontrollable deathbot. Nice going, OCP execs.

* ED-209 from ''Film/RoboCop1987''. Being the brain child of a CorruptCorporateExecutive, it's unclear how much of it is a design flaw versus intentional programming.

* Due to a flaw in his programming, Crush Crawfish from ''VideoGame/MegaManX3'' was already a violent psychopath even ''before'' he joined Dr. Doppler's forces -- no Maverick Virus needed.

* KL-E-0 (usually shortened to Kleo) from Fallout4. An [[LightningBruiser Assaultron]] weapons vendor in Goodneighbor, she has the bloodlust to match the lethality of the explosive weaponry she specializes in. It isn't just all noise either, as sneaking into her room and reading her terminal reveals that she has multiple contingency plans should anything go wrong and the need to cover her tracks comes up, ranging from killing characters in their sleep to poisoning the towns water supply before escaping.

** In "The Last Day", Hudzen-10, the replacement for Kryten, arrives after 3 million years of tracking him. His sanity chip burnt out by spending millennia in pursuit, he acts violently towards anyone who tries to stop him from deactivating Kryten, even rationalising away his First Law programming by noting that the other crew members don't count as human:
-->'''Hudzen-10's RoboCam:''' Rimmer: Ex-human hologram. VIABLE TARGET
-->'''Hudzen-10's RoboCam:''' Cat: Felix Sapiens, non-human. VIABLE TARGET
-->'''Hudzen-10's RoboCam:''' Lister: Homo Sapiens, barely human. WHAT THE HELL!
