    Perhaps the description should include robots that are homicidal. One of mankind's primal fears regarding machines.

    • Mavericks in the Mega Man X series.
    • Omega from Mega Man Zero personifies this trope almost as much as HK-47 does.
    • The Necrons from War Hammer 40000 are an entire army of this. The fall of man after the Dark Age of Technology was triggered by AI gone psycho.

    Bender from Futurama also fits, although its more Comedic Sociopathy compared to Roberto (who's genuinly unstable).

    The central plot of the Terminator series revolves around robotic psychopaths.

    One would have thought HAL would be the codifier...or is this different than a psychotic A.I.?

    HAL was an AI, most examples are robots and quite a few take after him..
