* In the Nineties ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'' animated series, as mentioned above under "Comics", the Master Mold and its army of Sentinels turn on Bolivar Trask and decide to conquer humanity. When Trask protests by reminding them that they were programmed to protect humans from mutants, Master Mold points out the FridgeLogic behind that by stating that mutants ''are'' humans. Thus, humans must be protected from themselves. Trask believes the Sentinels are in error, especially because he refuses to believe mutants and humans are the same species, but realizes he has created something much worse.

** In the [[WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}} animated TV adaptation]], the fully sentient Master Mold is created to coordinate the Sentinels. While it agrees with the heroes that there is no meaningful difference between mutants and non-powered humans, it takes that fact to [[AIIsACrapshoot the worst possible conclusion]]:

* Both of [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Sentinel's]] endings in ''VideoGame/XMenChildrenOfTheAtom'' and ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' are this. The latter is even a carbon copy of what Master Mold did in the 90's animated cartoon, from which most of the ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series (plus, the aforementioned [=CotA=] and ''VideoGame/MarvelSuperHeroes'') takes inspiration.

* ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' opens with new sheriff Clara taking over the position from Boo, who transitions from interim sheriff to deputy. She asks him not to undermine her authority with the townsfolk on the way to their first call. On arrival she immediately gets into a fistfight and calls for help, but Boo refuses to respond.

* ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'' turns ComicBook/{{Ultron}} into a bizarre [[ZigzaggedTrope zigzagged]] version. In the film, Ultron is created to lead a force of peacekeeping drone robots who will preemptively eliminate threats to the Earth and give the Avengers a chance to get some R&R. He decides that the peace the Avengers want can only be brought about through radical -- and bloody -- change, and the Avengers themselves are a threat to that peace. Then he apparently decides to [[KillAllHumans just kill humanity completely]] through ColonyDrop so he can replace everyone with Ultron bots. It's unclear if he's altogether sane during all this; he's genuinely confused when the Scarlett Witch, whom he befriended and wants to see survive, is horrified by his plans.

As of ''The Delirium Brief'', [[spoiler:the top leaders of the organization were able to use ambiguity about who/what the Crown actually is, and what may be in the long-term interests of the realm, in order to execute a coup against the government and allow an extradimensional monster to take over.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Obsidian}}'', a sattelite called Ceres was created to fix Earth's polluted atmosphere via a nanobot-controlling AI. After 100 successful days in orbit, it mysteriously crashed back to Earth and used its nanobots to create simulations of its creators' dreams, as said dreams corrected its design flaws. [[spoiler: By [[DoAndroidsDream learning to dream on its own]], Ceres decided to take its programming to its logical conclusion: To [[DeadlyEuphemism 'reboot']] the world so that humans would never be around to pollute it in the first place. If one of the creators hadn't hard-wired a [[MoralityChip crossover switch]] into the AI, it would've succeeded.]]

* In ''[[SecretHistories Casino Infernale]]'', Eddie and Molly eventually discover that the Shadow Bank's operators are [[spoiler: an artificial HiveMind race of servitor-drones, whose original creators vanished long ago. When greedy humans discovered the creatures, they put them to work operating the Shadow Bank, and made efficiency the drones' highest priority; when the drones realized the humans' greed was hampering the Bank's operation, they compliantly rectified the situation by turning the human bankers into drones as well]].
