* 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.

* In ''GreenLantern'', the Indigo Tribe is made up of reformed villains whose rings provide them with a compassionate outlook... in many cases, not entirely willingly. When the rings come off... hoo, boy.

* 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 RoaringRamapageOfRevenge.

[[TropeNamer Named]] for the "attack" used by the ''CareBears'', naturally. The [[FantasticAesop moral]] here being: "Never mess with a humanoid bear with a laser cannon in its chest."

* The trope namer is the CareBears. Originally conceived as a powerful weapon against the bad guys, ''Adventures in Care-A-Lot'' introduced the notion that it could also be used to heal and cheer up sad CareBears and kids. It isn't used nearly as often in ''[[WesternAnimation/CareBearsWelcomeToCareALot Welcome to Care-a-Lot]]''. Through the first fifteen or so episodes, it was only seen once and was used by the bears to simmer down a bully, forcing her to stop bullying another girl and actually talk about the feelings of jealousy she had which led to the bullying in the first place.

* In ''RobotmanAndFriends'', the title character and his pals can perform a version of this by producing music with positive emotions, which they use to defeat their arch-enemy Roberon. Sometimes this involves magic notes which appear and bombard the villain although other times it's entirely [[MagicMusic musical]] without any visuals. Either way, it has the same effect on Roberon as the TropeNamer does on the villains in ''CareBears''. As EvilCannotComprehendGood, and Roberon hates music anyway, it causes him to go berserk and run away. One time, it hurts him so much, he is physically reduced in size and vanishes out of existence (presumably sent back to the [[{{Mordor}} Land of Shadows]] because he returns just fine later). It only works on Roberon, though, due to positive emotions and music being his weakness; his [[{{Mooks}} Mook]] Sound-Off isn't affected by it at all.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'', the Queen Mikoto set up barrier around her kingdom of Hoshido so invaders from their warmongering neighbor, Nohr, would become peace loving upon entering the barrier's range. In response to this, the Kingdom of Nohr invented [[TheHeartless Faceless]], soulless undead monsters who have no will to be affected.

* There's also Monzaemon, a teddy-bear-like Franchise/{{Digimon}} whose main attack is the "Hearts Attack! With a hug!". It causes the opponent to float about in a heart-shaped bubble and giggle merrily.

%% * Honda Tohru of ''FruitsBasket'' makes Akito do a double take towards the end of the manga. Akito chases Tohru to the edge of a cliff with a knife, and Tohru looks like she has no chance to escape. What does she say? [[spoiler:"We didn't get off to a very good start, did we? Why don't we start over. Hello, I'm Honda Tohru. Let's be friends."]]

* Manga example : In ''Majuutsukai no Shojo'', the heroine Kashe gets a mental link to a [[EldritchAbomination demon]] that experiences positive emotions as negative and negative as positive and is eating her soul. When she figures this out, she inverts the process and gleefully tortures it into submission by focusing on her good feelings.
* Another manga example: In ''KareKano'' volume 16, Rika and Tsubasa [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/kare_kano/v16/c077/11.html Care Bear Stare]] [[spoiler: Arima's [[EvilMatriarch horrid biological mother]]]] into submission.

* The manga version of ''{{Trigun}}'' features an incredibly long climax whose final resolution involves [[AllLovingHero Vash]] giving every plant on the planet, in the form of [[EvilTwin Knives']] BodyHorror collective thing, a CareBearStare via ''bullet''. He reminds all of them [[spoiler: about the humans they always wanted to protect, so they detach from the KillAllHumans party, and then it rains angels.]]
