* In ''TabletopGame/{{Starfider}}'', the Shirren were an entire sub-hive that broke off from the Swarm due to a random mutation. Fortunately, they encountered and joined the Pact Worlds long before the rest of their hungry former brethren did.

** During the FinalBattle, [[spoiler:Discord creates [[MesACrowd a large number of Detachments to fight the heroes]], a form of Avatar unique to the Draconequi that [[LiteralSplitPersonality splits them into full sized version of their component animals each representing a different aspect of their personality]]. Discord notably struggles to control them, which is due to him being incredibly impulsive and having poor self control. The most obvious is Lioncord which goes ''completely'' berserk...because his brother Destruction, who he ate, managed to enter him and [[CameBackWrong came back in a super destructive and out of control state that nearly blows up Equestria]]. Discord has no choice but to [[EnemyMine help Twilight defeat him.]].]]

Goatcord ''also'' goes rogue on him completely on his own...of course Goatcord is also Discord's ''insanity'', so him having no control over him is to be expected. He's only stopped when Scootaloo [[CessationOfExistence erases him from existence with her cape Entropy gave her]].]]

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'',
** The deities are capable of making [[FightingAShadow Avatars]] to act as extensions of their will, some being better than others. However, during the Alicorn/Draconequi War, Havoc created one to fight in it personally, and unfortunately for everyone, it went insane and out of his control. This resulted in it going berserk and worsening an already bad situation, as well as [[spoiler:allowing Discord to eat Destruction before feeding itself to him, giving him the power boost needed to become the threat he is in canon,]] something Havoc would have ''never'' done and is in no way happy about.

* [[ComicBook/BlueBeetle The Reach's scarabs]] bond to a living thing and [[PuppeteerParasite control them]] as scouts and sleeper agents to facilitate a particularly GenreSavvy AlienInvasion plan. When one sent to earth is exposed to [[FantasyKitchenSink powerful magic]] and buried for thousands of years, it loses most of its power to control its host. And thus Jaime Reyes became a superhero with PoweredArmor. Over time, the scarab learned to like humanity and understand compassion much better.

* One of the LittleGreenMen from ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' is like this, referred to by the other Little Green Men as Independent Thinker. Downplayed, however, in that both Independent Thinker and the rest of his comrades are on the side of good and employed by Star Command. It's just that Independent Thinker is usually working on a different project and sometimes in a separate department from the others.

It's just that Independent Thinker is usually working on a different project and sometimes in a separate department from the others. Also downplayed in that the show suggests Independent Thinker is not completely detached from the HiveMind: He knows what they're thinking and vice versa; he just chooses to obey or disobey the others as he pleases.

* ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'': The creation of one of this is the centerpiece of a millenia long Gambit by the Overmind. The RogueDrone in question? [[spoiler: Kerrigan the Queen of Blade]]. It's an interesting take on the trope, as the RogueDrone was created by the HiveMind itself to defy its own primary directive [[spoiler: forced on by its AbusiveCreator Amon]].

* Several of ''VideoGame/EndlessLegend'''s [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Necrophage]] heroes are implied to be these, generally as a result of coming into contact with Dust, which is capable of inducing sentience in non-sentient creatures.
