* In the "[[ComicBook/TheBlackRing Black Ring]]" storyline in ''ComicBook/ActionComics'', Lex Luthor releases the Zone Child (a creature that intended to purge all negative emotion from the universe) from the Phantom Zone and defeats it. He gains its full power and proceeds to use it as the Zone Child would. We then get a montage of TheDCU (the ''entirety'' of it) experiencing eternal bliss. Luthor learns that he can only keep his newfound power as long as he doesn't do anything negative, [[StatusQuoIsGod so]] [[HisOwnWorstEnemy of course the first thing he does is try to kill Superman]]. This led to the Joker, of all people, commenting about how Luthor, with his pettiness, squandered the ultimate power to do good.

* In ''Franchise/StarWars'', Sith are said to have a skill called [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Dun_M%C3%B6ch Dun Möch]], used to commit psychological warfare against their opponents. Mockery is part of it, but apparently not all. It has an ''inverse'' side which Luke used on Anakin in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', reminding him that he still had good in him. The {{novelization}} makes it clearer that this is actually a power, and Luke is trying to use it to call out the Jedi he's sure is somewhere in the Dark Lord of the Sith. Vader resists on the surface of Endor, but it still has an effect.

* Happens by ''Literature/DoraWilkSeries'' by accident. When [[OneManArmy Azjel]] comes to kill Nathaniel, Dora tries to blast him with storm magic, but in panic reaches for love magic. This proves to be actually better, as it awakens the memories of Azjel's mother, therefore bringing back his emotions and humanity. The sheer shock drives him away and when he returns, it's as an ally.

-->'''Jeff:''' You're becoming dangerous, Annie. It's those doe eyes. Disappointing you is like choking [[Film/TheLittleMermaid the Little Mermaid]] with a bike chain.

* This trope's use led to utter disaster in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis''. Zatanna attempted to use her magic to bring out the goodness in Dr. Light - the big problem being Arthur Light didn't have a lot of that if the first place. Her attempt instead retarded his intellect and turned him from a villain capable of taking on the Justice League to a punching bag for the Teen Titans. When he was restored, he was thoroughly infuriate and went into a RoaringRampageOfRevenge.

* In the ''ComicBook/MaximumCarnage'' crossover, SpiderMan and his friends built a CareBearStare raygun and used it to mellow out most of the villains that had teamed up with Carnage. But since Carnage had never experienced such positive emotions before, the effect on him was more akin to MindRape.
