* ''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.

* The Vath in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV: Heavensward'' are an entire ''tribe'' of Rogue Drones, broken off from the Gnath HiveMind and trying to eke out a peaceful existence in a tiny village far from their hostile cousins' territory. While even they don't fully understand what protects them from the Onemind's influence, their independence from it has allowed them to develop individual personalities.

* ''ScudTheDisposableAssassin.'' Unknown to him, his line of robots were programmed to take down their target and self-destruct. He found this out when he saw the sign on his back warning others of the blast-radius. He decided living was better.

* [[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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* As noted below under ''PlanescapeTorment'', the ''{{Planescape}}'' setting for ''DungeonsAndDragons'' Second Edition had rogue modrons -- robotic incarnations of law that broke free of their programming -- as player characters. Unlike the other PC races, though, who had dozens of representatives in the game world, until ''Torment'' was released there was exactly ''one'' rogue modron of any importance in the setting. Rogue modrons are ''rare''.

* Nordom from ''VideoGame/PlanescapeTorment''. In the {{Planescape}} DungeonsAndDragons setting, Modrons are a race of pure [[OrderVersusChaos law]], from the pure LawfulNeutral plane of Mechanus. They're rather robotic in their behavior, but those that experience a "glitch" in their "programming" (often caused via LogicBomb) become rogue modrons and gain some independence. The Modron share lifeforce (whenever one dies, one of each rank below is promoted to fill the chain of command and one bottom rank modron is produced) so any discovered rebels get... recycled(this seems to be handwaved in the computer version - you can talk to other modron with Nordom in tow and they won't turn hostile). The first time the player encounters Nordom, the protagonist casually refers to him as a "backwards Modron", thus accidentally giving him a name allowing him to think of himself as an individual.
