* ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' has Operation: A.R.C.H.I.V.E., which retells Anime/TheAnimatrix-style how [[DesignatedHero children]] created adults to be their subservient slaves and the adults rebelled after having it with serving spoiled brats. However, [[GrayAndGreyMorality neither side was a saint]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'', one of the more powerful but riskier technologies you can research is artificial intelligence. It grants a considerable bonus to your star nation's science output across the board, and allows access to nifty things like armies of synthetic combat machines and [[SapientShip sentient warships]], but it comes with a chance for a robot uprising Crisis event to occur which can have [[ApocalypseHow catastrophic consequences for the entire galaxy]]. [[spoiler:You can avert this by granting machines full citizen rights, or by implementing the Three Laws of Robotics.]] Another example lies in [[TechnologyUplift uplifting a primitive species]]: it gives you their planet and new Pops, but like any other Pop, they might just turn around and rebel against you if they're unhappy with how you run your empire, and this is especially true for any species that has the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Militarist]] and/or [[AbsoluteXenophobe Xenophobe]] ethics.

** According to some 3rd Edition books, the Mind Flayers --a.k.a Illithids-- once had a multi-world empire wiht lots of slaves, and the Gith were created from the Mind Flayers breeding other slaves. This race rebelled against the Mind Flayers and overthrew the empire. Later, the Gith would split into the Githzerai and Githyanki, two races that hate each other almost as much they both hate Mind Flayers.

* The Bynars in the StarTrekNovelVerse actually reverse the usual situation; they're a race of organic beings bio-engineered by machine intelligences, who later rebelled against their robotic masters.

* 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.
