* The brainwave scanner in the ''GIJoe'' comic was a feared--and painful--method of brainwashing. It could eventually be broken by a strong-willed individual, and if one was a master of the "Arashikage mind-set" one could free others as well.

* In the Ben10AlienForce episode "Above and Beyond", Pierce believes [[AllLovingHero Ben]] to be this when he attacks his grandpa Max and the rest of the recruits. He's not. [[spoiler: The whole attack just turns out to be a training stimulation, in order to test if they had what it takes to become Plummers.]]

** [[spoiler: When a teenaged Anju was lost in the mountains and about to fall victim to SnowMeansDeath, Karuma herself seized her. Then she erased Anju's memories and brainwashed her into becoming her servant.]]

* One episode of ''Series/TheEqualizer'' features an experimental setup in which sidekick Mickey's memories of [=McCall=] saving his life are switched out for a scenario of cruel betrayal, thus giving him the motivation to assassinate [=McCall=].

* Laura Kinney aka ComicBook/{{X23}} falls victim to this whenever she is exposed to the Trigger Scent. Thanks to the Facility's conditioning, Laura suffers a Pavlovian response to the scent that makes her into a true LivingWeapon who will not stop until the people marked with the scent are dead. She blacks out all conscious thought during these times and only comes back after the scent is gone. Just to illustrate how powerful her response to the scent is, in her origin story ''ComicBook/InnocenceLost'' she killed the only two people she ever really cared for and who cared for her under the influence of the scent. She also nearly killed her aunt and cousin who only survived because they were able to wash off the scent in time. Emma Frost once claimed that the Trigger Scent response is so deeply ingrained in Laura's brain that Emma can't remove it with her PsychicPowers.
* Jean-Paul Valley has what is known as The System, a deep brainwashing program used by the Order of St. Dumas for those chosen to be their Avenging Angel, ComicBook/{{Azrael}}. The trance is ''usually'' activated when the person dons the Azrael costume, turning them into an efficient, though very brutal, assassin. However, when Jean-Paul [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}} took over for Bruce Wayne]], his first supervillain encounter happened to be the Scarecrow. When he got nailed by Fear Gas-coated barbs, the System kicked in to get him through it... and never shut off. This sent Jean-Paul over the edge as time passed, leading to the death of Abattoir and Bruce Wayne needing to come back in order to fix things.

** This also happens when somebody is "worn by their clothes", and the Life Fibres in their garments forcibly bend the wearer's will to their own. [[spoiler: This happens to Ryuuko when she's forced to don Junketsu in Episode 20.]]
