* ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'': Mir pulls this after being tortured her whole life to make her "more efficient". Her creators didn't care that they were ''torturing her'' because she "[[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman wasn't a person]]". She had to [[ColonyDrop drop]] a FloatingContinent to get out of the situation, and then she got [[SealedEvilInACan sealed away]]. [[SarcasmMode Fun]].

* ''{{Series/Extant}}'': Discussed at the meeting when John is making his pitch to fund the Humanichs. John rebuffs their question by saying this isn't a master-slave relationship, and that he views the robots as his children (Ethan particularly), clarifying that he has no safeguards against this scenario. The board is not reassured, and turns down his proposal.

** "[[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E12TheDoctorFalls The Doctor Falls]]": the Saxon Master helps the crew of a Mondasian spaceship become Cybermen, with the goal of using them to first take control of the rest of the ship and then use the Cybermen army to take over the universe. Missy joins him. Then the Doctor expands the Cybermen settings to add Time Lords to the "menu", and suddenly the Masters' creations are after them too.

* Happens now and again in ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', with varying degrees of effectiveness;
** The BigBad of the Blood Gulch Chronicles is O'Malley, the personality that was created when the AI Omega possessed Doc. Normally, whomever Omega infects simply has their aggression increased, but after getting into Doc, the result was a LaughablyEvil BigBadWannabe with aspirations of universal domination. Earlier, the Red robot Lopez and sentient battle tank Sheila tried to form their own uprising, but Lopez was HijackedByGanon.
** In Season 10, we learn that the Meta, the BigBad of the Recollection, was actually the result of the AI Sigma brainwashing SuperSoldier Agent Maine into seeking more AI and equipment.

*** The M5 in "The Ultimate Computer", ultimately due to it being patterned after the unstable mind of it's creator.

** ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise''
*** Doctor Arik Soong and the Augments he created initially get along pretty well and it looks like he'll be the Big Bad of the storyline. The relationship falls apart when Soong balks at the Augments', especially Malik's, tendency towards violence and murder. Eventually Malik stages a takeover and confines Soong to his quarters. Soong escapes and helps the Enterprise stop his "children" from beginning a second Eugenics War.
** The other major problem the Augments had was Doctor Soong had devised a way to adjust their brain chemistry to give them greater emotional control and make them less impulsive and violent. They decided they liked being the way they were.



** In an example not involving humans, the Daleks were created by the Kaled scientist Davros from victims of extreme radiation poisoning, to function as the perfect soldiers in his country's war against the Thals. When his superiors attempted to shut down the program, he ordered the Daleks to turn against the rest of the Kaled race. After they were done with that genocide, they promptly turned on ''him''.

* ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' has Jack Ryan, who after killing [[spoiler: Andrew Ryan,]] was basically told YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness by [[spoiler: Frank Fontaine after he takes over the underwater city of Rapture.]] The rest of the game has Ryan break free of [[spoiler: Fontaine's]] control and [[MultipleEndings either]] [[spoiler: killing Fontaine and [[DownerEnding taking Rapture himself,]] or [[EarnYourHappyEnding freeing the little sisters and adopting them on the surface world.]]]]


Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BioshockInfinite'' has the Vox Populi, a militant group who recruits members from the downtrodden ethnic minorities in Columbia. At the beginning of the game, they aren't much of a threat to the local security forces, but in [[AlternateTimeline one tear that Elizabeth opens]] has the Vox Populi engaging in a [[TheRevolutionWillNotBeCivilized violent insurrection]] after deciding that they were not going to take anymore abuse from their "social betters."

* In ''{{Skinhorse}}'', ultra-groovy super-hip MadScientist Tigerlily Jones' robot army rebels against her. In the cruelest way. They decide they want to learn to be square. One even wants to learn ''accounting and polka''. Oh, the humanity!

** Buu has a double serving of this. As Fat Buu he killed [[EvilSorcerer Babidi]] because he was a BadBoss more than anything. In the past, as Kid Buu he had attempted to kill his creator [[PosthumousCharacter Bibidi]] [[OmnicidalManiac because Bibidi existed]].

** Unrelatedly, in ''Star Control II'', they're... conspicuously absent. Their fate is, in a word, chilling.
