* In Anime/KillLaKill, Ragyo's Mental Refitting forces special Life Fibres called Marionette Threads into her victim's brain, turning them into mindless drones that do her bidding without question. In Episode 18, we first see this used to [[spoiler: enslave the entire 1-Star student body of Honnouji Academy.]] Made even worse when she used it on [[spoiler: Ryuuko. She managed to fight it off, though, and ''physically pull the Marionette Threads out of her own brain with her bare hands!'']]

* ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has Widowmaker, a cold-blooded and heartless assassin who was once known as Amélie Lacroix, a perfectly sweet innocent civilian. However, she was married to high-ranking Overwatch member Gérard Lacroix, who foiled the schemes of terrorist organization Talon at every turn. So instead of fighting him head on, they instead kidnapped his wife, and subjected to her intense brainwashing, neural reconditioning, torture, and the complete obliteration of her original personality, and then returned her (seemingly) unchanged as sleeper agent, who killed him in his sleep soon after. Afterwards, they completed the process and turned her into the perfect weapon for assassination through means of biological alteration. Whatever is left of the old Amélie is little to be found at this point, making her one of the most [[CryForTheDevil tragic]] characters in a game that's not [[CrapsaccharineWorld lacking in tragedy]].

* The main villain of ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'', [[spoiler:Lusamine]], gets hit with this ''bad''. [[spoiler:She's infected with the toxin of UB-01 Symbiote, a.k.a. Nihilego, which causes those it infects to become aggressive towards those around them and protective towards the creature itself. As a result of the infection, Lusamine became abusive towards her children, Lillie and Gladion, until they ran away from home; by the end of the game, her obsession has become so great that she willingly fuses with one of them, [[EldritchAbomination creating one of the most horrifying entities ever seen in the series]]. Oh, and the ending implies that [[AndIMustScream she may have been at least partially conscious throughout all of this]], and that [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone she is horrified by what she did in this state]].]]

* This sort of thing seems to happen to Franchise/{{Superman}} on semi-regular basis.
** Probably the fact that Superman is glaringly not immune to magic and mental powers, coupled with the possibilities inherent in showing just how badass a character is by having him/her hold off frickin' ''Superman'' while at the same time giving the character in question a good reason for why they're fighting a good guy, makes this kind of story just too big a temptation for comic writers to resist.

* BonusBoss Ancient Devil in ''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 ''YTheLastMan'' Yorick's sister Hero falls under the influence of Victoria, the man-hating cult leader of the Daughters of the Amazon, so much that she's prepared to kill her own brother, as well as shooting a young girl in the head on Victoria's order. [[spoiler:Even after Victoria is killed Hero still has her voice inside her head.]]

* Clip from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' spends most of his time in the books annoying people and getting himself into entirely avoidable trouble. Then he [[spoiler: gets posessed by the Dying God]] and starts [[spoiler: murdering Nimander's group]] one by one and trying the same with [[spoiler: ''Mother Dark'' upon her return]]. For a character who was at best a minor nuisance up to that point, it takes considerable resources to stop him.
