** Once the main event was dealt with in DanganRonpa3, one of its survivor ''Anime/DanganRonpa3'', Ryota Mitarai, the Ultimate Animator, decided to show broadcast a brainwashing video to every person on the world to wipe out sources of despair such as pain, suffering, jealousy, etc.-- but as others point out, those people that were stripped of these negative emotion emotions may not even be called human.human. Note the difference is that in Super Danganronpa 2, the neo world program merely remove existing brainwashing and memories, but requires its participants to actively pursue their idea of hope, while Mitarai's video remove human natures, and is done forcefully.

* 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.

* 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.
