* 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.

* 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]].

* Every boss fight in ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is this until close to the end of the game. Although it's more like "Battle In The Center Of The Collective Unconscious".
* The Palaces of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'' are twisted manifestations of a person's corrupt desires. In these cases, the "center of the mind" is a Treasure that the Phantom Thieves set their sights on stealing in order to force someone to have a change of heart.

** A similar storyline occurred mid-season nine; [[spoiler: Sam has been possessed by a renegade angel and trapped in a hallucination in his own mind while the angel uses his body, forcing Dean and Castiel to allow Crowley to possess Sam's body so that he can tell Sam what is happening to him and help Sam expel the angel]].

* In the ''Star Trek: The Next Generation'' comic ''Perchance to Dream'', Captain Jean-Luc Picard is forced to infect himself with an alien telepathic weapon known as the Chova that has already infected most of the ''Enterprise'' crew; based on past records of the Chova's use, it can be defeated by those with multiple personality disorder, as multiple personalities would overwhelm the Chova due to it only being able to attack one personality at a time, rendering it inert so that the cure can be passed on to others. Picard is selected due to a detailed mind-meld with Sarek, the probe that gave him the memories of Kamin, and his traumatic experience being assimilated by the Borg. When the Chova infects Picard, the four personalities are able to defeat the Chova, but Locutus attempts to take control of Picard's body for himself, forcing the other three to band together and overwhelm Locutus before he can destroy them.

* In Creator/TerryPratchett's ''Discworld/{{Thud}}!'', when Commander Vimes [[spoiler: is chosen as the Summoning Dark's champion, its attempts to take him over are represented as it entering a city (Vimes's mind) and being thrown out by a Watchman,]] representing the bit of Vimes that watches himself: [[spoiler: the Guarding Dark.]]
** This also shows up in ''Discworld/AHatFullOfSky'', where the Nac Mac Feegle help Tiffany confront the hiver that's taken over her body by luring it into the part of her mindscape where she's most powerful, a mental representation of her home country.
** Granny Weatherwax has a moment like this in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum.'' (Vimes and Granny have a lot in common...)
** Rincewind has a Hissy Fit In The Center Of The Mind in ''Discworld/TheLightFantastic'', when he berates the Great Spells of the Octavo for ruining his life, and he later subdues the Eighth Spell by figuratively hauling it out of hiding within his psyche.
