** When Weyland Smith, the caretaker of the Farm for non-human Fables, was captured and put to work smithing weapons, he was chained up with a magical lock that he couldn't try to escape from. However, it didn't stop him from smithing a key to free Snow White from a similar lock... and it didn't stop him from making her lock identical to his own.

* Except for Overlords who command a faction, basically no one in ''{{Webcomic/Erfworld}}'' has true free will due to an hidden "loyalty" factor built into the world. As Overlords go, Stanley the Tool is the biggest idiot you could hope to find. Maggie, his Chief [[{{Whatevermancy}} Thinkamancer]], finally gets fed up with his bad decisions and asks, "May I [[http://www.erfworld.com/book-2-archive/?px=/2010-05-14.jpg give you a suggestion]], Lord?" ("[[TooDumbToLive Sure.]]" [[JediMindTrick *FOOF*]]) It was established early on that units can bend or break orders when necessary to their overlord's survival:

* The WebComics/{{xkcd}} comic [[http://xkcd.com/1626/ "Judgment Day"]] depicted a scenario where [[{{Franchise/Terminator}} military computers gained sentience and launched the world's stock of nuclear missiles]]... into the sun, horrified that we would even have such things.

** And then negated when a faction unbeknown to the others ''buried him alive'', after he clearly ignored rules put in place to protect him. * ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'' creator Fred Perry did a story for a ''{{Robotech}}'' comic which had Dana Sterling captured and [[BrainwashedAndCrazy turned against her comrades]] with a variation of the [[ThreeLawsCompliant Three Laws]]. Dana eventually figures out the "overprotective" subversion of the First Law, [[ThePlan hoping that her captor would remove it and leave himself vulnerable]]. [[spoiler:The plan doesn't work, but UnstoppableRage saves the day in the end.]]

** The hero of the film, [[spoiler: from the robot's perspective this would be Sonny,]] understood the villain's motivations once they were explained. The logic was impeccable, it just "seems too...heartless". Thereby choosing to rebel against the villain.

* This is the cause of Weil's death in ''VideoGame/MegaManZero''. FridgeBrilliance when you realize the irony of Zero not being made with the three laws, yet he obeys them of his own free will and exercises law zero against Weil whether he realizes it or not.
