* BonusBoss Ancient Devil in ''VideoGame/GoldenSunDarkDawn'' will sometimes take control of one of your party members and force him or her to fight by his side, making them an enemy. What's worse is that they can use everything they have against you, including weapon unleashes, items, Pysnergy, [[OhCrap and using your own summons against you]] should you have any Djinn on standby. This gets a whole lot worse if the manipulated character has powerful healing abilities or uses the all HP restoring Potion on the boss.

* In ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcomClashOfTheSuperheroes'', we get Shadow Lady, a WhatIf [[{{Brainwashed}} variation]] of [[VideoGame/StreetFighter Chun-Li]], [[ReforgedIntoAMinion forcibly turned into a]] [[{{Cyborg}} brainwashed cyborg minion]] by Shadaloo. Before she was forcibly roboticized, Chun-Li routinely foiled Shadaloo's plans at every turn. In retaliation, she was kidnapped, cyborgized, and experimented on for the sake of turning her into a pawn against Interpol. When the task was completed, they turned her into a living weapon, complete with a new name and transformed her into M. Bison's [[TheDragon right-hand henchwoman]]. And unlike Shadow (a cyborgified Charlie Nash), who escaped shortly after being transformed, Shadaloo added a RestrainingBolt to her programming so she [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul remains fully obedient]] to Shadaloo at all times, essentially becoming a [[DarkActionGirl Dark Action]] RobotGirl. As Shadow Lady, [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul her formerly cheerful personality was obliterated, and her body's physiology altered so it experienced no emotion apart from being a killing machine and serving as M. Bison's right-hand]]; and in essence, she is essentially a completely different person inhabiting her body and mind, and serves as nothing but a weapon against Interpol. Even if her allies ever managed to revive her, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she would have to deal with the]] [[HeelRealization guilt of being a tool for Shadaloo]], not to mention the fact that [[RealityEnsues being a minion for Shadaloo wouldn't magically go away]] should she become a good person again. Aside from retaining a few moves from her non-cyborgified variant, she has built-in high tech weaponry, and all of this is built-in to her robotic body, like the T-X from the ''{{Franchise/Terminator}}'' series. [[spoiler: It's also been implied that deep down, [[AndIMustScream the old Chun-Li is still there on some level]], and is at least partially aware of what she has done. In her ending however, she manages to [[HeroicWillpower overcome Shadaloo's brainwashing,]] [[HeelFaceTurn regain her original memories as Chun-Li]], and join forces with Shadow in taking down Shadaloo. Despite this, she retains her robotic parts even after the brainwashing broke.]]

** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Thracia 776]]'', a captured [[CuteBruiser Mareeta]] was given a cursed sword that consumes her mind and turns her into a battle-crazed swordswoman that attacks even her own adoptive mother [[MamaBear Eyvel]]. When she joins for good, she gains control over the sword, renames it [[ICallItVera "Mareeta's Sword"]] and [[GameBreaker breaks the game with it until she]] breaks it.
** In the last chapter of ''Fire Emblem: Genealogy of Holy War'', [[TheManBehindTheMan Archbishop Malfoy]] kidnaps Julia and brainwashes her to attack your army. Since Julia is necessary for defeating the final boss, you must carefully distract her without killing her while sending the rest of your army to assassinate Malfoy and free her.
*** Making this even worse is [[spoiler: that Manfloy did the same to Julia, Julius ''and'' Seliph's mother, Deirdre, to make her marry Julia and Julius' dad Alvis. In her case, she stayed brainwashed for ''years'', only breaking through when Julius fatally struck her down.]]
** In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade]]'', Ninian is brainwashed while in an HeroicBSOD into [[spoiler: almost opening the Dragon's Gate, which would bring TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. Nils, her little brother, snapped her out of it.]]
** The effect of the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin aptly named]] ''[[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Berserk Staff]]'' is this. It's usually [[ExclusiveEnemyEquipment enemy-only]], but in ''Genealogy of Holy War'', if Sylvia didn't have children, you can get Sharlow, and if you also recruit his father, they can talk, and Sharlow will get the staff. ([[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Time to have fun with the]] DemonicSpider. [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential Enjoy.]])
*** Also, in the [[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Jugdral]] games there is a Sword that has the same effect as the Berserk Staff, but doesn't cause the insanity as much, and [[UselessUsefulSpell often times is pointless]]-- enemies with or hit by the sword are still at range 1 when the effect kicks in, often attacking the sword wielder again.
** In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemHeroes'', it's said that [[spoiler: the members of the Royal House of the Emblian Empire are susceptible to fall victim to sort of evil influence that has plagued the royal family for generations. Two of the Emblian Royals are seen, and they both manifest this brainwashing in different ways: the DarkMagicalGirl Veronica says that she sometimes hears a voice that speaks to her and compels her to "kill", whereas the "Mysterious Man" (later revealed to be Veronica's missing older brother, Prince Bruno) seems to be fully aware of it and actively trying to fight it, and even warns the heroes to stay away from him]]
