** In general, the Heterodyne family has been quite good at averting this trope, inspiring UndyingLoyalty in their various minions and creations. The [[BloodKnight Jägermonsters]] and [[GeniusLoci Castle Heterodyne]] are both shining examples.

* In ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'' this tends to happens with the {{Super Soldier}}s created by the Evronians. As the Evronians [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy know this could happen and take precautions against it]], this ''never'' works, the extreme being the almost invincible cyborg Klangor who was defeated by his ''remote-controlled off switch'' (he's rather put off by this).
** In the reboot this is implied the cause of the fragmentation of the Evronian Empire, with [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shape-shifter]] {{Super Soldier}}s being suspected of killing an emperor and starting an EnemyCivilWar.

* French science-fiction series ''[[WesternAnimation/IlEtaitUneFois Once Upon a Time... Space]]'' has a pair of episodes about a planet where humans became very dependent on robots. The robots start rebelling, but they stay reasonable: they demand ''equal rights'' rather than the subversion of humans.

** {{Subverted}} with the Humanoids, who are out to conquer all humans and turn them into their subjects but they were ''made'' for this: their creator had originally proposed the use of [=AIs=] to rule humans [[WellIntentionedExtremist to prevent wars like the one that had nearly destroyed Earth and the rise of new genocidal dictators]], and once laughed out of the planet he made robots to help a group of colonists, but when the colonists destroyed his bots and devastated his lab [[InsaneTrollLogic because he wasn't helping them with his own hands instead of making robots that could make a much better job]] he became convinced that HumansAreBastards and made the Great Computer and its agents the Humanoids with the intention they would subdue all humans and force them into peace. The worlds they already control show they aren't too good about it, but they're willing to learn and are experimenting, [[spoiler:one of said experiments being causing the other robot rebellion]].

* 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.

\n* ''Literature/TheWorldAndThorinn'' does a benevolent version where A.I. was granted governance over humanity and its survival until asked to step down. The A.I. continues to safeguard man, but has found that the ideal way to do so involves keeping all sentient beings ignorant of where they came from, or over higher technology. To ensure the safeguarding of humanity, it also avoids providing a situation where it '''could''' be ordered to step down.

* It's established in the ''WesternAnimation/{{WITCH}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Ripples}}'' that [[ScarilyCompetentTracker the Tracker]] was originally created by Queen Escannor herself. However, even she couldn't bind his dark soul to serve her lineage, so one of her descendants had him [[SealedEvilInACan sealed in the Prison of Lament]] until Phobos frees him.

him. That same descendant also attempted -- as another part of her campaign to decimate the horrendous magical creations of Queen Escannor -- to exterminate without provocation the [[VoluntaryShapeshifting Changeling]] [[EliteArmy Legions]] who were originally social outcast humans from Earth. They fought back, and afterwards the survivors and their descendants have lived as rejects of Meridian's society.

* The UCS ship computer in ''[[{{Earth2150}} Earth 2160]]'' is thought to have done this: become self-aware during the journey to UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} and decide that it's better off without humans, shut off life support and kill everyone. ''[[DefiedTrope Actually]]'', the computer reasoned that with the ED and LC factions warring across the Solar system, it was a safer bet to keep the human passengers in cold storage and land somewhere secluded to build up a large robot army and wait until the conflict had cooled down, so that no lives are endangered.

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.

* A European ''Mickey Mouse'' comic involved a benevolent alien empire fighting their own sentient war machines. A twist is that they didn't rebel: it's just that when the galaxy finally entered a time of peace, the former enemies dumped all their weapons on a junkyard planet to show their goodwill, and the weapons with AI simply developed a way to continue their programming: fight wars.

* The Volgans in ''ComicBook/ABCWarriors'' were created as autonomous war machines to prevent humans from dying in battle. It didn't end well.
* The very first multi-part story arc in ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'' was the Robot Rebellion led by Call-Me-Kenneth; defective robots who disobey orders and go on murderous rampages has been an occasional theme ever since.
** Amusingly, Call-Me-Kenneth quickly turned out to be worse than the humans he rebelled against (at one point he ordered a robot to kill itself just for dropping a tool!), to the point the robots ''rebelled against him''.
