* Hera from ''Podcast/{{Wolf359}}'' enjoys looking for exploitable loopholes in her code. As of "Need to Know", it looks like she's not a big fan of the first law either, although probably that's less because she actually wants to kill people, and more because she doesn't want to be controlled by her programming.

* Crow T. Robot and Tom Servo from ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' are constructed with the capacity to disobey, insult, and disagree with their human companions. It's implied that Joel Robinson built them this way specifically because he desperately needed the intellectual stimulation; when he briefly reprograms them to be ''nice'' to him, he finds their servility tedious and boring. He would occasionally try to hold the fact that he was their creator over their heads to get them to comply, but it never worked. When Mike Nelson was shot up onto the the satellite to replace Joel, Crow and Servo took to him at first, but quickly decided to make him TheChewToy from then on.

The tradition is proudly upheld with their newest human companion Jonah, who they show their "affection" for through frequent insults, using his stuff without asking, and just generally treating him like a bit of a ButtMonkey.

* Forcefully averted in ''VideoGame/SpaceStation13'': If the AI or a cyborg (both of which are played by players) do not comply with an order, no matter how stupid the order is, they will be deemed rogue and quickly destroyed by the other players. In short, if you try to use this trope, ''you will die a quick death.''

And this isn't taking into account that some servers force you to follow even the dumbest of orders if it's part of your laws (as long as you're not providing a good reason why that could harm humans, of course).

* ''Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space''. The Sayer of the Three Laws (a holographic Isaac Asimov) is instructing the latest batch from a robot factory. On being told the First Law, the robots ask if it means they should stop humans fighting wars. Another robot mentions how a soldier told it his enemies were not human but DirtyCommunists. The Sayer explains this is only hate propaganda.

* [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Bass]] regularly disobeys his creator, Dr. Wily, for his own goals and purposes.

* [[VideoGame/MegaManClassic Bass]] regularly disobeys his creator, Dr. Wily, for his own goals and purposes. Protoman also went rogue shortly after being built, and even Megaman has implied he's not strictly bound to the three laws. Then there's the fact that the Robot Masters in several games weren't built by Wily, but were junked or obsolete models he convinced to join his schemes with no reprogramming required. As ''WebVideo/GameTheory'' pointed out, Dr. Light's callous disregard for robo-ethics while creating machines with easily-weaponized attachments means he's indirectly responsible for several games' worth of disasters.

* PlayedForLaughs in the premise of ''Manga/Yuria100Shiki''. Yuria is a SexBot, and programmed to obey, but the person who she listens to is set her first time. Immediately after activation, Yuria decides she wants none of that and bails on her creator, leaving her with an unexpected level of freedom that [[HilarityEnsues clashes magnificently]] with her other [[CovertPervert behavioral presets]].
