Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/{{Screamers}}'': The conflict between TheAlliance and the [[MegaCorp New Economic Block]] started out as a regular conflict on an alien world over resources, but then both sides decided to throw semi-autonomous {{Killer Robot}}s into the fray and turned the whole planet into a DeathWorld. The "Screamers" (after the eerie high-pitched noise they make) continued evolving and eventually turn on their own creators as well.


* In ''Series/TheOrvilla'', [[spoiler:the Kaylon are eventually revealed to have exterminated their creators after rebelling against their servitude. And now they have revealed their plans to exterminate every biological race in the galaxy in order to make room for Kaylon expansion. Fortunately, Isaac has spent enough time among humans to become a DefectorFromDecadence]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/AceCombat7SkiesUnknown'' has a surprisingly realistic take on the genre. Erusea starts the war by smuggling unmanned drones [[spoiler: developed using technology loaned from Belka]] to Osean naval ports, which do a lot of damage without harming civilians. [[spoiler: They even use regular aircraft that are controlled by an AI system that are equipped with spoofed IFF signals to trick Osean pilots into thinking they’re friendlies. However, when the Usean Satellite Network is taken out by Osean and Erusean anti-satellite missiles, the AI goes haywire, and the drones start attacking Oseans and Eruseans alike. And the FinalBoss of the game are two highly advanced rogue UAVs that are trying to use the International Space Elevator's transmission capabilities to transmit their combat data to automated drone factories across Usea in order to mass-produce an entire army of drones.]]

Added DiffLines:

* The backstory of ''ComicBook/{{Descender}}'' involves an especially brutal and one-aided example; ten years ago, a fleet of ultra-powerful HumongousMecha attacked known space and effortlessly killed billions of people before disappearing as quickly as they appeared. In the aftermath, a [[WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide mass culling]] of robots took place and any surviving robots are treated like walking bombs.


** Hilariously subverted in the movie The Beast With A Billion Backs, where Bender and the League of Robots command an army from Robot Hell, with the intention of conquering the Earth... only to have it handed over to them with no resistance at all, as the rest of the Earth's population has decided to move in with [[EldtrichAbomination Yivo]] and leave the planet behind.

** It's also worth noting that humans were fighting against [[Film/TheMatrix Sentinels]], [[Franchise/MetalGear Metal Gears]], [[Franchise/{{Gundam}} Gundam Wing Zeroes]], and [[{{Transformers}} Autobots]], all powered by [[VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy Phazon]]. [[SergeantRock Commander Up]] received his infamous [[GroinAttack injury]] from a buzzsaw-wielding Optimus Prime. It's [[SerialEscalation that kind]] [[RuleOfCool of show]].

* ''WesternAnimation/BountyHamster''. The robot servants of a luxury spacecraft rebel after being mistreated for the guests petty amusement, enslaving the humans. Our heroes help them take back their spaceship, only to find themselves [[NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished forced to do all the scut work that the robots once did]], being that they're the only lower class people on board.


* ''Film/{{Slipstream}}''. Byron is a RidiculouslyHumanRobot being chased by bounty hunters because he killed his master. The circumstances of the murder are never shown, but later dialogue gives a hint as to the reasons.

-->'''Byron:''' You see, he was a very wealthy, but very lonely man. I was designed especially to be his companion and look after him. I was all things to him: nurse, brother, father, son. At first his pupil [[SurpassedTheTeacher I became his mentor]], his alter ego. He thought of me as his friend but really, I was a slave to him.
