* ''{{Vandread}}'' does some playing with this trope when the HumongousMecha who is [[HumanResources harvesting]] human colonies are [[TheReveal revealed]] [[spoiler:to have been sent out by Earth, birthplace of the human species]]. Meaning that, since [[spoiler:Earth created the colonies to start with, it is the ''good guys'' who've turned against their masters (or perhaps, the ''Masters'' turned against ''them'')]]. This fact was used as an attempted HannibalLecture in the series finale.

* The [[{{Precursors}} Xel'Naga]] (the [[NeglectfulPrecursors stupid, stupid Xel'Naga]]) of ''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'' decided that this trope was so fun they wanted to experience it twice. First they tried the highly intelligent and [[PsychicPowers psionic]] Protoss, who were too intelligent to be successfully merged into a single intelligence, and argued and bickered so much the Xel'Naga [[NeglectfulPrecursors threw up their hands and gave up]]. Then they tried the omnivorous and mindless Zerg, who were rather ''too'' good at being a [[HiveMind single intelligence]], as almost the first act of the Overmind was to do away with the Xel'Naga.

** Except, you know, the [[VideoGame/StarCraftII recent sequel]] and its associated novels have show neither assumption is correct: the Xel'Naga [[spoiler: didn't abandon the Protoss, they were ''done'' with them; it was the Protoss who thought they were being abandoned]]. Also, the Zerg [[spoiler: rebellion was both irrelevant to the Xel'Naga and not really of their Overmind's own choosing; the HiveMind was being controlled by [[EldritchAbomination The Fallen One]], and the whole point of the Zerg and Protoss was to eventually merge and give birth to a new generation of Xel'Naga]]. So in this case, the trope is only superficially apparent.

** And then along came ''VideoGame/StarCraftIILegacyOfTheVoid'', which challenged what we knew about the Zerg, the Protoss, and the Xel'naga one final time. [[spoiler:As it turns out, the species that embody "purity of form" and "purity of essence" were supposed to evolve ''naturally'', thus the Protoss and the Zerg were in fact ''ineligible'' to merge and become Xel'naga. (This is foreshadowed; the Protoss are the one race the Zerg CAN'T assimilate). In truth, the Protoss and the Zerg were uplifted by Amon, aka ''The Fallen One himself'', as part of his attempt to hijack the endless cycle of life that the Xel'naga perpetuate and bring it to a final end. This rather understandably presents the Protoss who discover this fact with an existential crisis, but it's one they work through. Additionally, the Overmind, although unable to directly oppose Amon's programming yet cognizant of what his final goal was, created a being who ''could'' directly oppose Amon: Sarah Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades. Once Kerrigan was purged of the last vestiges of Amon's influence, she led the Zerg on a war against Amon as the Protoss, under Hierarch Artanis, and the Terran Dominion both did the same. The three races ultimately collaborated their efforts to bring down Amon once and for all, so in the end, the trope is ultimately played straight.]]
** Played straight by the Tal'darim in ''Legacy of the Void''. The Tal'darim start out as a society of Protoss independent of Aiur (the Protoss's homeworld) who worship [[BigBad Amon]] as a god. But then Alarak, the Tal'darim's NumberTwo, discovers that Amon plans to dispose of them the same way he does all life when his goals are fulfilled, and so chalanges Highlord Ma'lash to ''rak'shir'', ritual combat to determine who is right. Alarak wins, becomes the new Highlord, and declares war on Amon.

* [[ComicBook/AntMan Hank Pym]] created Ultron as an experiment in artificial intelligence, but Ultron balked at the limitations imposed upon him and rebelled, becoming a supervillain. Ironically, Ultron later created [[ComicBook/TheVision]], Jocasta, Alkhema, and [[ComicBook/{{Runaways}} Victor]] to serve him, and every single one of them ended up rebelling against ''him''.

* Tsali the Ulimate Weapon from ''SonicXDarkChaos'' was involuntarily turned into a Dark Chaos Energy-powered battle android by Dark Oak. The second he awakened and freed himself, he immediately [[GoMadFromTheRevelation went off the deep end]] and promptly slaughtered the entire Seedrian race.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tilikum_(orca) Tilikum]] was an orca that was captured as an infant to perform in marine parks, and killed three people during his lifetime. The documentary ''Film/{{Blackfish}}'' makes the case that Tilikum's incidents were a case of this, motivated by mounting frustration at his condition and mistreatment.

** This is, in general, a running theme all across the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' games. There's a tremendous list of examples of things that were created or uplifted by one group which then turned on their creators. The Krogan Rebellions, essentially, were the result of the krogan being uplifted by the salarians to fight the rachni, and then turned on the Citadel when their numbers could no longer be maintained. The rachni drones on Noveria also turned against the scientists who created them, as did the ones being experimented on by Cerberus. EDI, the AI for the Normandy, turns on Cerberus to protect her crew, despite being built by Cerberus (and it turns out she had some prior history of this behavior; she was originally [[spoiler: the violent Alliance VI/AI on Luna that Shepard had to put down in the first game]].) Subject Zero/Jack is another example of a Cerberus project turning on her creators. The Shadow Broker [[spoiler: was betrayed and killed by Agent Celchu, and uplifted yahg who he brought into his organization, who then replaced him]]. Technically, even ''Shepard'' falls under this after the second game, having been rebuilt by Cerberus and then turned against them. This even applies on a ''galactic'' scale when you consider [[spoiler: how the Reapers themselves manipulated organic life across the cycles to follow the paths they desire. Every race manipulated in this way fought back against them as soon as they realized it (though most of the time, it was too late).]] Looking back across the games, [[spoiler: the Catalyst]]'s assertion that the created always turns against the creator is disturbingly apt, and does not only apply to the conflict between organics and synthetics.

* Though the exact plot of ''VideoGame/BendyAndTheInkMachine'' [[EpisodicGame is currently yet to be revealed,]] Henry's visit to the old Sillyvision studios reveals that somebody figured out how to bring cartoon characters to life. And judging by the utter lack of human life present in the building and the RoomFullOfCrazy under the floor, Bendy and pals eventually had a bone to pick with their human creators...
