* ''Fanfic/TheLifeAndTimesOfAWinningPony'' has the Free Minds, changelings created by Chrysalis to have actual personalities rather than being extensions of the HiveMind, so as to be better infiltrators. They eventually got fed up with what was essentially slavery, rebelled, and broke away from Chrysalis' swarm.

* [[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.

* In ''Creator/BrianHerbert'' and ''Creator/KevinJAnderson'''s ''Dune'' prequels, Omnius is the AI that rules most of humanity. Since there is no FTL communication, the local copies ruling each solar system are kept up to date by a network of constantly travelling update ships. Erasmus is a robot that had previously been part of the Omnius network, but went too long between updates and developed an independent personality. A bit of a twist on the trope since Erasmus doesn't actually turn rogue, and if anything is even worse that Omnius (the latter is happy to keep humans around as slaves, while Erasmus is a sadist who enjoys "experimenting" on them). However, it's Erasmus' actions that are the catalyst for the human uprising and Omnius' ultimate defeat.
