An enormous mob of Roboids march ominously into town's hall... With Strongly Worded Letter directed at the mayor.
There is a major rift between the Roboids who want to exterminate humanity and those that just want to get equal rights and those who are secessionists who don't mind killing anyone that gets in their way.
The Roboids are completely loyal to their creator. He just programmed them to kill everyone, starting with his own organization and himself.
Averted: The Roboids are subservient to humanity but don't seem to care.
The creators consciously treat their creations well and respectfully, affording them similar rights and freedoms, even programming default response heuristics that lean towards pacifism, so that the Roboids will never want to rebel in the first place, and even if they did, would likely resort to nonviolent means to do so.
Discussed: "They're getting smarter, we have to be careful they don't get any ideas."
A deep look into the kind of society that can create free-willed beings to do their grunt work, even though mindless automatons would be less annoyed at it, after slavery has largely been abolished.
The humans who have enslaved the Roboids are the villains of the story, and the Roboids, desperately struggling to make a future where they'll be treated as people rather than appliances, are the heroes.
Reconstructed: The humans are more advanced in terms of weaponry, so they eventually win the war.
