* Much like its source, the fan comic ''WebComic/SailorMoonCosmosArc'' features brainwashing: first of Chibiusa to become a queen of chaos, then Endymion to be her consort, then the Asteroid Senshi to fight on behalf of Servant Chaos. [[spoiler: The Asteroid Senshi are killed by Usagi, and Chibiusa and Endymion's brainwashing are broken when Usagi does a SuicideByCop in response to the previous phrase.]]

* In the books of DaleBrown, [[spoiler:David Luger]] was brainwashed into helping the Soviets after he gets captured by them. Eventually he gets rescued and somewhat "fixed", but the memories and effects still show on occasion.

* ''DarkAngel'' Manticore loved to do this by pumping drugs into X-5's then blasting them in the eye with a laser for hours on end. Leaving them not even knowing what they revealed while drugged.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/TheWitchlands'', Esme's Cleaved are witches who had all their Threads (connections to other people, places, emotions, etc.) save for one broken, with that last one being attached to Esme-controlled Loom, which either turns them homicidal or makes them utterly devoted to Esme's cause, regardless of their previous stance.

*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.

%% * ''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.

** 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.
