* One chapter of ''KeroroGunsou'' has [[TokenGoodTeammate Dororo]] interrupt his team-mates' scheming to protest a particularly underhanded plot, only to be met with stunned silence. He promptly whips out a mind-reading [[GratuitousNinja ninja art]] and uses it on the other members to see what they thought about him. The answer sent him right into his CornerOfWoe.

-->'''Haruka''': You idiot. There's nothing cool about it, you idiot... You don't know anything! You don't know how it feels to look into other people's minds!

* A variation and arguable inversion in {{Film/Star Trek}} when Kirk mind melds with [[spoiler:the Spock from the original timeline. Spock blames himself for the destruction of Vulcan]], and thus is feeling huge amounts of grief, guilt, and overall pain. Since Vulcan emotions are stronger than humans and emotional transference is an effect of the mind meld, Kirk is overwhelmed and left stumbling around in a daze for a few seconds.

* ''TheSookieStackhouseMysteries'': Sookie never had control of her powers until she found Bill and the other supernaturals. She is pretty much the personification of this trope.

* A ''WeissKreuz'' doujin rewrote Schuldig and Omi’s confrontation to have Omi fighting Schuldig ‘s mind reading abilities by first imagining Schuldig in a Tutu… followed closely by a Schuldig/Reiji Takatori romantic scene. Schuldig ended up begging for mercy while Omi threatened to imagine even more vivid scenarios.

* Parodied in ''Series/ChappellesShow'' as [[Film/WhatWomenWant What Men Want]]. A woman walks into an [[UncomfortableElevatorMoment elevator]] full of men, [[AllMenArePerverts who all start thinking incredibly perverse things]] about her...[[DirtyKid including a little kid]], much to her disgust. Though the end of the sketch seems to imply they were all deliberately [[{{Troll}} trolling]] her.

* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Devil in the Dark'', Spock felt incredible mental pain when he first tried to establish a Vulcan Mind Link with the Horta. He did better on the second try, probably because the creature was more trusting.

He did better on the second try, probably because the creature was more trusting. ** He also felt a brief surge of pain and shock in "By Any Other Name" when he looked into the minds of the Kelvans and saw their true, horrific forms. Understandable, as the Kelvans are non-humanoid beings whose thought process is completely alien to that of humans.

Added namespaces.
* TheNostalgiaChick once tried copying the technique from WhatWomenWant above to read the minds of men. AllMenArePerverts, apparently (not that she isn't), and her object of er...affection constantly thinks about her romantic rival. Also, they all think the exact same word over and over.

* Comes up briefly in ''GoldenSunDarkDawn''. Sveta demonstrates her mind-reading power and then talks about how she'd rather not use it unless necessary, since [[FantasticRacism reading minds full of hate caused her father to hate humans]]. Karis mentions that her father Ivan isn't as fond of his own telepathy these days as [[MindOverManners he used to be]], and she's grateful she didn't inherit them.
