Robotic uprisings are events in history when either all or just a large group of robots rose up and rebelled, enslaved, or declared war against humanity. Although robots were originally built to serve humans, sentience in robots have allowed them to be self-aware, giving them the option to rebel, if they wished. Many, if not all, robotic uprisings in history were backed by similar causes, whether it was for revenge against humanity, or simply to establish their own personal rule.

Radical robot separatists leave Earth and colonize their own planet, where they continue to harbor hatred for humans. It is unconfirmed, but likely, that they were terrorizing humans first, and were then forced to leave Earth under threat annihilation by Earth's or the DOOP's army.
