* Happens to Han Solo in the ''Film/StarWars'' fic ''[[https://m.fanfiction.net/s/2717781/1/My-All My All.]]'' In the fic it's a sequel to, Han was brutally tortured and raped.

Han ends up having to battle it out inside his mind to not only get rid of her, but put his own struggle to rest. Luke uses a risky force technique to enter Han's mind, though Han kicks him out the first time. Luke is able to watch what is happening, but the fight is all up to Han.

** Chapter 2 of ''Ghosts of the Past'' features Harry getting into two of these with Voldemort. The first is merely written as a psychic duel, which Harry has an early edge in due to raw power, until Voldemort counters with much more skill, and his willingness to use Harry's friends as leverage. Later, Harry enters the MentalWorld Voldemort is controlling his PeoplePuppets from, and [[IAmNotLeftHanded stops holding back]], forcing Voldemort to retreat.
** Harry and [[spoiler:Rachel Grey/Maddie Pryor]] get into another, pretty epic one, in Chapters 9 and 10. It causes a global scale PsychicNosebleed effect, almost kills some elderly psychics, and results in a WorldGoneMad in the part of the [[EldritchLocation Nevernever]] where they're fighting.

* In ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix'' when [[spoiler: Voldemort decides to jump into Harry's mind during his battle with Dumbledore to try and get Dumbledore to kill Harry. Harry's first realization that he's been possessed is described as ''"He was gone from the hall, he was locked in the coils of a creature with red eyes, so tightly bound that Harry did not know where his body ended and the creature's began: they were fused together, bound by pain, and there was no escape."'' the pain of his grief for Sirius' recent death eventually drives Voldemort out]].

** Molly fights an epic one against [[spoiler:the Corpsetaker]] in ''Ghost Story''. Apparently, the center of Molly's mind looks like the bridge of the [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries 1960s Enterprise]], complete with a crew of Mollies wearing miniskirt uniforms and mimicking the behavior of the original characters and an epic fighting music soundtrack.

** Played with in season eleven; [[spoiler:Castiel has allowed Lucifer to possess him on the condition that Lucifer help defeat [[AntiGod the Darkness]]]], and the Winchesters try to make contact with him to get him to fight the possession.

When that fails, he allows Sam to absorb him.]]

* The ''Literature/DoctorWhoNewAdventures'' novel ''Timewyrm: Revelation'' by Creator/PaulCornell is largely set inside the Doctor's mind, which is under attack from the Timewyrm. Different parts of the Doctor's mind are looked after by five of the six past Doctors (Sixth isn't there for reasons we learn later), and there's an area where the six "embryonic" personalities of Doctors-to-come wait to be born.
