** In the "Utopia" DLC of ''VideoGame/{{Stellaris}}'' Biological Ascension allows an empire to transform their population into a HiveMind, or for a natural Hive Mind to assimilate non-hive populations (without it they [[ToServeMan eat]] non-hive [=POPs=] in their territory), or a conventional empire to "free" hive-minded [=POPs=]. While "Synthetic Dawn" has "Driven Assimilator" type machine empires that start as networked robots who cyborgized their creators, and desire to do the same to the other organic species in the galaxy.

* This is the basic concept "The Moon's Eye Plan" in ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', whose aim is to dive all people in eternal Genjutsu and collect all the chakra in all people for the user in order to [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans reach peace in the world]]. The plan also intersects with LotusEaterMachine, since for each one who gets caught in the Genjutsu, will be created a perfect world in which all his desires will be fulfilled. Although the entire concept and execution seems depends on executor, [[DarkMessiah Obito]] who's more concerned about the execution of the "LotusEaterMachine" part, than "collect all the chakra for himself", uses the [[WorldTree Shinju]] to achieve the goal, while [[AGodAmI Madara]] who's more concerned about the execution of the "collect all the chakra for himself" part, awakens the [[ThirdEye Rinne Sharingan]] and uses it to trigger the Infinite Tsukiyomi.

* This is the ultimate goal of [[spoiler:Infel and Nenesha]], of ''ArTonelico 2'', to create a world where all people can exist in peace and happiness for eternity by launching them into their own [[LotusEaterMachine separate virtual realities]] under the global network, where they [[AGodAmI may live as gods]] through Sublimation. Considering that the towers that support the little remaining human life in an otherwise completely dead world that they believe is sentient, and deliberately trying to kill all humanity, are crumbling and failing, and they already tried, and failed, to use the only other option, Metafalica, unlike most other practitioners, it lands them squarely in AntiVillain territory for trying this one. The heroes still stop them and try (and nearly fail) Metafalica, anyway.

* The Khala in ''Franchise/StarCraft'' is a ''heroic'' example. Since by the time just before its discovery, the Protoss are fighting a massive civil war, and the discovery of Khala by Khas/[[spoiler:Savassan]] ended the civil war and helped restore the psionic link that was lost in the war. Though to be noted that even when they are linked the protoss still retain individuality.

*** StarCraft is indeed interesting as exampled in volume 3 of Frontline manga. It seems like some protoss do consider the Khala as hive-mind (even though they retain individuality and it's like a free-over-the-galaxy-telephone-for-zero-cost) and even for that little the exiled dark templars reject it (and are happy with just normal telepathy). As for archons it seems like a case-by-case, the in-game unit has no personality and only urge to destory its enemies, the Twilight Archon is a something unique altogether (and we don't know what its personality like) and Ulrezaj is made of 7 dark templars but only Ulrezaj original personality controls the body.
