* What happened to Cavalier and Skybolt in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse. It took nearly a hundred stories before we found out what really did happen to them, and it's worse than we thought: [[spoiler:Villainous witch Hekate tricked them into entering a 'Fool's Circle', and cast a ''human-sacrifice-of-children''-dark binding spell, which forced them to obey all her commands, while still remaining conscious of their actions. Subsequently, Hekate and Don Sebastiano raped and humiliated Cavalier and Skybolt repeatedly for a year. The two victims, once freed by Fey, were very, very angry. Worse, from Hekate's point of view, Fey got angry too...]]

* The United Sanctuary Branch in [[Anime/CardfightVanguard Cardfight!! Vanguard G]] does this to young fighters. Of course, the young unsuspecting fighters have no idea what they're getting into at first, but once they sign up, they're subjected to a harsh "strengthening program" and having the sentence [[MadnessMantra "Weakness is a sin."]] ingrained in their heads. They aren't kept against their will though. However, their [[MoreThanMindControl desire to become better players]] is used to the Branch's advantage to keep the majority from quitting. It also helps that their training does work in getting results, if you're willing to sacrifice the fun of the game.

* [[spoiler:Mamoru/Tuxedo Kamen]] of ''Anime/SailorMoon'' is loved this trope, especially during the Dark Kingdom arc, ranging from brainwashed random innocents-of-the-week up to the horrifying [[spoiler:brainwashing of Endymion/Mamoru/Tuxedo Kamen]] into becoming [[spoiler:an agent of the Dark Kingdom in the first season. Sure, it didn't take at first, but after the second go he pretty much beat Usagi within an inch of her life before [[ThePowerOfLove Usagi tearfully reminding him of their history together, holding out their music box locket]] snapped him out of it. Then he's brainwashed again in the second arc of [[Manga/SailorMoon the manga]] by the Black Moon. He's brainwashed ''again'' in the fourth season by Nehellenia's mirror shard.

** And according to the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] continuity and a blink-and-you-miss-it reference near the end of the season [[spoiler: the four Dark Generals/Shittenou all suffered this fate, too, being brainwashed by Beryl and Metallia the same way Endymion was. This might suggest some semi-failed brainwashing on the part of [[HeroicSacrifice Nephrite]]...]]
