* In Royce Day's Literature/ForYourSafety, the 'morphs develop a group consciousness in response to humanity's inability to do anything about a looming [[GreenAesop environmental disaster]]. In a mild subversion, they don't actually kill off all of humanity, just confine it to a small RingWorld to keep them out of the way while the morphs heal the planet.

** The reason that 17 & 18 turned on Gero was because he had activated them previously, and (being extensivly remodeled humans) when they weren't the mindlessly obedient Goku-killing machines he wanted, and started to rebel against his orders, and he had shut them down because of it. So when he reactivated them, they decided that they didn't like the idea of someone shutting them down, so they killed him, destroyed the controller that had the off button on it, and blew up the rest of his lab. Except Cell's container.

In at least one story AfterTheEnd of the Human-Melconian war, when a deliberately lost colony of humans had their protector Bolo subverted by a race of malevolent, intelligent machines. The Bolo eventually subverted it's own subversion, and laid waste to the machine occupation force while the humans escaped.[[note]]''Bolo Rising'' by William H. Keith, Jr. To be fair, Hector did have some human assistance.[[/note]]

* In the backstory of ''VideoGame/Persona3'', a hundred orphans, including what would become Strega, had artificial Personas awakened by the Kirijo Group. The resulting Personas were unruly and had a tendency to ''kill their user'', presumably because the Shadow Selves that became them weren't tamed properly. We actually see one such Persona, Medea, attempt to kill her user, Chidori, and it manifests as some invisible thing strangling her. Strega are forced to take poisonous suppressant pills in order to prevent this from happening.

* Creator/{{TSR}}'s ''Buck Rogers XXVC''. The pirate Black Barney was a Terrine (genetically engineered) fighter designed and created in a Dracolysk Corporation laboratory in the Jovian Trojans. He and his fellow Barnies killed their creators and escaped the lab.

* In the backstory of ''Anime/{{Macross}}'' the [[{{Precursors}} Protoculture]] created the Zentraedi as SlaveMooks. Being GenreSavvy about this they had them conditioned to not attack them, but when the [[Anime/Macross7 Protodeviln]] appeared and created an army out of brainwashed Protoculture people [[GodzillaThreshold they had to remove the safeties to fight back]]... And as soon as the Protodeviln were sealed away, the Zentraedi wiped out the Protoculture.

* As a sort of meta example, humanity in general is so GenreSavvy about this trope that any situation that could result in creating sentient life would be either avoided entirely or set up to avert this trope in a CrazyPrepared manner. The British Government has already commissioned a team to theorize how to handle the event of the creation of a sentient artificial intelligence.

** Individual Pokémon have been known to turn against their trainers if sufficiently mistreated. A good example is Charmander, who torched his trainer, Damien, once Ash and his friends helped him see that Damien didn't give a Rattata's ass about him.

* In ''VideoGame/DigitalDevilSaga'', [[spoiler:the Embryon]] could be this, depending on who their creators are considered to be. On one hand, [[spoiler:Sera]] created the world they lived in and four of their number, and was the one who pulled in the rest. On the other, the Karma Society, who manages [[spoiler:Sera]], took over her creations, heavily altered her world to the point where is was almost unrecognizable other than a few landmarks, and ran their experiments, including the ones that gave [[spoiler:the Embryon]] their emotions and sentience. On the third hand, [[spoiler:Brahma was the one who is the source of all data, including the soul of the dead Gale]]. [[spoiler:The Embryon sides with Sera against the Karma Society and Brahma]].

* In ''SpaceAboveAndBeyond'', the humans do it ''twice'': first they make the [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots Silicates]] as disposable soldiers, who, when freed by Dr. Stranahan, turned and started working with the [[BigBad Chigs]] (who can blame 'em?). They then create the [[DesignerBabies In Vitros]] as a servant caste, and treat them like shit. Yep, HumansAreBastards. Seriously, [[WhatAnIdiot what idiots]].

* Freeman in ''Machinima/FreemansMind'' discusses the trope a bit and concludes that [=AIs=] will never turn against us, because they are too narrow-minded and lack emotion. The ideas/tropes of [=AIs=] turning against their masters and ruling the world is actually a wishful dream of humans who ''want'' the robots to do it, so that humans don't have to. The case is redundant anyway as programming an AI to rule the world would take just as much work as doing it yourself.



* Acibek in ''Webcomic/DominicDeegan''. Interestingly, Acibek was crafted from pure Law magic, and the asshat it turned against was LawfulStupid to a degree that made Miko from Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick look good by comparison. He also employed [[PoweredByAForsakenChild the immortal souls of several hundred]] [[HumanSacrifice elven sacrifices]] in the process, and while this admittedly didn't result in the eternal torment you'd expect those two tropes to entail, Acibek had all their memories and was not best pleased about the fact that nobody had bothered to gain their informed consent. On this occasion this trope didn't involve going against his intended purpose, at least FromACertainPointOfView:
