** In the first story arc, Sailor Moon isn't able to free Mamoru from Bery's [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing]] with [[IKnowYoureInThereSomewhere gentler methods]], so she eventually realizes that the only way to stop him is to stab him with her sword. [[spoiler:Upon killing him and stabbing herself in grief, she awakens to find that both of them survived and Mamoru is now free of the mind control.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueVsTeenTitans'', if you don't have the Lasso of Truth or an appropriate spell, the best way to get Trigon's spirits to leave their hosts is to poison or injure their host bodies.

* A slight variation in ''Series/StargateUniverse'': Colonel Young locks a brainwashed Colonel Telford in a room and vents the oxygen until he's virtually dead in order to undo the process.

to:

* A slight variation ''Franchise/StargateVerse'':
** It is established early on that a near-death experience will break nearly any form of brainwashing. This method is risky, however, since the brainwashee must be brought quite literally to the edge of death, so there's a very real chance that they ''will'' die
in ''Series/StargateUniverse'': the process.
** Rya'c is cured of brainwashing in ''Series/StargateSG1'' by shooting him with a [[StunGun zat gun]]. Zats usually just knock a person out, but since Rya'c was a child, the effect was more severe, enough to break the brainwashing.
** Teal'c is similarly cured of brainwashing, though it takes more effort since, as a battle-hardened {{Badass}} from a society of warriors, he can resist quite a lot of punishment. They do so by removing his Goa'uld larva (which functions as his immune system), and just letting the resulting sickness take its course.
** In ''Series/StargateUniverse'', the idea is revisited when
Colonel Young locks a brainwashed Colonel Telford in a room and vents the oxygen until he's virtually dead in order to undo the process.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4|APromiseUnforgotten}}'', [[spoiler: the repentant former BigBad Nemo gets corrupted by the power of [[DoomsdayDevice Fear The Great]], which he had (unintentionally) tapped into for the final episode, forcing Valvatorez and company to beat some sense into him for the very final battle... Well, [[MultipleEndings the final battle for the normal/best ending, anyway.]]]]

* In ''TabletobGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', most [[CharmPerson enchantment spells]] allow another save when the target is attacked. The most common practise is to beat the crap out of your Dominated friend.
**Ironically enough, the original Charm Person spell doesn't allow this.

* In VideoGame/ResidentEvil5, you are attacked by [[spoiler:former partner Jill Valentine]], who is under the influence of a mind control device (which is attached to the chest, naturally). Administering a beating is [[AvertedTrope a bad idea]], since if you do too much damage to her, you'll accidentally kill her. Instead, you have to work with your partner to hold her still while one of you tries to pry off the device.

* In ''WebVideo/RedVsBlue'', AI can BodySurf by jumping between hosts via their radios; they can also control their hosts, making them highly dangerous as a result when they get malevolent, as [[OmnicidalManiac Omega]] was. One of the ways that an AI could be removed from the host was knocking them out. Thus, Tex punching people in the face quickly became the expedient way to force the AI out, usually because Tex didn't have the patience for the less violent alternatives. [[RuleOfFunny That and it's funny]].

* In ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', a solid blow to the head seems to reverse the mind control caused by Loki's staff, at least in the cases of Hawkeye and Dr. Selvig. Black Widow, not wanting to take the risk that the trope isn't in effect, punches Hawkeye out just to be safe.

* TruthInTelevision, at one point in history. See, elves weren't always ''nice'' creatures - actually for most of history [[TheFairFolk they were downright evil]]. ChangelingFantasy was ''not'' about being super-awesome because you were ''really'' the fairy king's daughter when people actually believed in it. Kids with birth defects or mentally retarded or autistic children were thought to be elf children, and the elves had taken your normal, beautiful child away from you and replaced it with their ugly, stupid one. Beating these supposed elf children -- sometimes to the point that they died -- was standard practice, because this was thought to be the only way to convince the elves to give you your normal child back.

You better believe a BadassPreacher is going to do this. HolyBurnsEvil, right? So the fists of a holy man or woman should be sufficient to free the victim.
