*One major example in ''Fanfic/TheKeysStandAlone: The Soft World'': Ringo is subtly brainwashed by the Guardians' psionics and almost kills John as a result.
**A minor example is when the four are ambushed just outside the White Tower and hit with love-me magic to keep them still until their attackers can divest them of their white key and enter the Tower themselves. Except [[spoiler: Paul is immune to mind control, and scares them away]].
***Similarly, the ambushers at Hermit's Rock find out the same thing about [[spoiler: Paul]].

* A favoured technique of ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}} is to capture heroes and transform them into his Horsemen, then send them out to do violence in his name. Notable victims include [[ComicBook/XMen Archangel, Colossus]], ComicBook/{{Wolverine}}, [[ComicBook/IncredibleHulk the Hulk]] and ComicBook/{{Psylocke}}, all of whom eventually escaped his control, one way or another.

%% * ''Series/{{Dollhouse}}''. The whole reason it exists.A major use of the technology, developed over the course of the series, is to allow long-distance brainwashing -- either of selected targets, or of ''anyone who can hear the signal''. By the end, this has escalated to the point where the majority of the surviving population of the planet is brainwashed to kill anyone who isn't brainwashed. It's also something that can be hidden in even the most mundane of imprints -- for instance, the kind-hearted, gentle, Mellie can be transformed into a ruthless killer with a simple code phrase.

** Vaati seems to have done the same in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaFourSwordsAdventures'' as the guards are enemies, and various characters comment they're acting strangely.

** In another episode, Starlight Glimmer wants to impress Twilight Sparkle by getting all of her friendship lessons completed successfully.What does she do? She casts a spell that turns five of the Mane Six(With the exception of Twilight) into willing slaves that [[ExactWords do exactly what she tells them to do.]] with understandably disastrous results. She can't even ask them how to do the activities assigned because they only want to do whatever she says that they should. To make things worse, the spell was so powerful that it left the gang feeling exhausted and drained even a day later... Yikes.

* Cassie, in the ''Flux & Anchor'' series by Creator/JackChalker. After having magically compelled herself to become the champion of Mother Church on World, her bond eventually falls apart and she is captured by the male-dominated society of New Eden, who use traditional brainwashing methods to turn her into a compliant female. Their task is made easier by the fact that [[spoiler: she's [[DespairEventHorizon tired of being a responsible leader]] and is going through the low point of a [[MoodSwinger manic-depressive swing]] that makes her want to turn authority over her life over to someone else. By the end of her brainwashing, she's willing to marry New Eden's leader and bind herself with a spell that makes her a sex-obsessed, physically exaggerated, [[BrainlessBeauty airheaded]] [[MadeASlave Fluxgirl]].]]

They also say that the other duties that these women have are as drug mules and as messengers who bribe highly influential people with sex.
