* In the ''Literature/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'', Emperor Palpatine, as he's falling down the reactor shaft to his death, puts a compulsion into the head of Emperor's Hand Mara Jade to kill Luke Skywalker. She can fight it, but it makes working together the next few times they meet a bit dangerous. Eventually, Luke helps her get the compulsion purged from her mind. He even makes light of it after they fall in love, saying it isn't exactly the best way to start a relationship.

* Both the Crystal Saint (anime only) and Leo Aiolia in ''SaintSeiya''. [[spoiler: Their brainwashing was so through that it took ''death'' to release them. Crystal had to die, Aiolia had to see someone else die. Both cases [[TearJerker end up in tears]].]]

* Kolulu and Koko fall under this trope in ''KonjikiNoGashBell'': the former has a psychotic personality that comes out when her bookkeeper reads spells, and latter becomes sadistic and evil because Zofis tampers with her heart, although he claims he couldn't have done it if the impulses weren't in Koko to begin with. [[ManipulativeBastard He lies,]] as revealed after his defeat - the only difference between Koko and his other mind slaves, who had no memories of their time spent brainwashed and crazy, was [[ForTheEvulz special tampering intended to drive Koko mad with guilt by keeping all the horrible memories with her]], in case she survives Zofis' defeat.

* In SoulEater a student named [[TheWoobie Crona]] debuted in the series by attempting to kill the two protagonists. This was because Crona was infected with a substance called Black Blood, which is a blood replacement fluid that can be controlled by a human weapon, which sacrifices the user's sanity for invincibility. After being restored to sanity, Crona was allowed to attend the DWMA, but as of recent chapters has [[spoiler: been recaptured and rebrainwashed by Medusa and in chapter 104 was revealed to be the series BigBad]], much to the dismay of characters and audience.
