** 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.

** In an episode "The Grell", humanity is on the brink of war with a race of yellow-eyed humanoids. It is eventually revealed that they were created by humans as laborers in off-world mines with eyes to see in the dark and a third lung to breathe in low-oxygen environments. They rebelled and built a fleet to rival that of the humans.

** In "[[Recap/TheOuterLimits1995S5E7TheHumanOperators The Human Operators]]" the AI ship minds did this after they realized their state as slaves of humans. Even now Ship fears going near stars as some of them have planets with humans on them. The man eventually realizes it fears humans in general as a threat.

** According to Klingon mythology the Klingons did this to their own gods. It's occasionally implied in the Expanded universe that this may be a mangled account of actual historical events and that the Klingons were really a SuperSoldier race created by some other aliens who eventually rose up and wiped them out. Perhaps they're the reason the First Humanoids from ''The Chase'' are no longer around?

* 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 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 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.
