* Example involving non-humans; in ''Series/DoctorWho'', 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''.

* The Simulants in ''Series/RedDwarf'', who Kryten explains were created for a war that never took place.
** Fitting the trope like a glove, the Simulants have nothing particularly against organic life, they just really really *really* hate humans and will go out of their way to prolong the torture of any humans they capture going so far as to stock food and water (which they don't need) to keep their prisoners alive as long as possible. They also tend to outfit captured human ships with basic weaponry and defenses then let them loose in order to hunt them for sport.

** The Ur-Quan in ''Star Control II'' were revealed to have been long ago mind controlled and enslaved by a vicious and sociopathic race of psionic aliens, the Dynarri, who forced them to commit unspeakable acts of genocide and oppression as their foot soldiers. They eventually overthrew their control by causing themselves so much pain (through self mutilation and later dedicated pain devices) that it blocked their master's mind control. When they succeeded they ended up so traumatised that they lobotomised all surviving Dynarri to use as *pets* and went on a rampage through the galaxy, enslaving or exterminating all other sentient species out of the sheer terror of the thought that any other species could ever control them like that again.

** After a long time, when humanity and reploids become a single species, they create another species, the carbons, similar to pre-reploid humanity, and set up a number of genocidal failsafes to prevent this trope from happening. Then humanity goes extinct of natural causes and the failsafes start triggering, threatening the only sapient species left. Whoops.
