* Also used on the Hyperclan (White martians) after the Justice League stop their invasion of Earth all of them are brainwashed into thinking they're regular humans, this later causes more problems for example when one of them think he's Bruce Wayne.

* This is the MO of [[VideoGame/Persona5 the Phantom Thieves of Heart]]: stealing the hearts of corrupt people to perform a HeelFaceBrainwashing on them. Ironically, despite being a typical [[KnightTemplar Shin Megami Tensei Law character]], [[HeroAntagonist Goro Akechi]] finds this unacceptable and this is one of the reasons why he ([[SixthRanger initialy]]) opposes the protagonists.

* ''Podcast/WithinTheWires''' FalseUtopia ensures the nonviolence of its citizens in the aftermath of devastating war through a combination of {{cybernetic|seatyoursoul}}ally-enhanced repression of memories at age ten, and batteries of psychological programming. The protagonist is a patient, who, after illustrating deviant behavior, is supposedly undergoing a rehabilitative version of the latter during their stay at as an inpatient at a research hospital called the Institute.

* Done in ''Literature/TheVoyageOfTheSpaceBeagle'' - Grosvenor can't convince the rest of the crew to sign onto his (superior) scientific philosophy, so he hypnotizes them through the ship's PA system. This is seen as a heroic action.

** One episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' has Picard boasting that the Federation "[[UnfortunateImplications learned how to detect the seeds of criminal behavior]]". The effectiveness is... debatable.

* In ''The WebOriginal/SCPFoundation'', there's an SCP, SCP-2000. [[spoiler: It's a ResetButton that can recreate humanity in the event of an ApocalypseHow.]] Behavioral and cultural modifications are noted to be possible with this SCP, and there's a suggestion it could be used to tone down the sociopathic and violent tendencies in humanity. [[spoiler: They've toned it down as far as they could: to do any more would actually ''hinder'' humanity's progress.]]

** A third episode involves the crew having to do this to one of their own, the Doctor[[note]]who is a holographic AI entity[[/note]], after he ends up developing a severely impeding obsession with a past decision over treatment of two critically wounded crewmembers who had an equal chance of survival with his care, but he only had time to treat one. In essence, his decision processing could handle greater-than/less-than, but not equal-to values. He repeatedly demands the blocked memories be restored when he figures out there's blocked memories, and then repeatedly has a nervous breakdown, and the crew repeatedly has to re-block the memory. [[FridgeLogic Just don't ask why they never thought about the limits having only ONE doctor for the whole ship (especially in combat situations) when they could have set up MULTIPLE holographic bodies for the Doctor to control simultaneously in such situations.]]
