This power even extended to people hearing it second- and third-hand, though it weakened the more people it wen through.

Added DiffLines:

* The true extent of his hypnotic powers [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the writer]], but ComicBook/{{Morbius}} is mostly portrayed as this. He describes it himself as being able to "strongly suggest" things to people, but it depends on the will of the person. E.g. the first time he used it on ComicBook/SpiderMan he was sure it only worked because the latter had been drugged which impaired his will.

** Somewhat subverted in that rather than mages getting the ability to inflict the Charm condition through a spell as in most [=RPGs=], ''thieves'' do it. With enough "Job Points", they can learn the ability to steal not only the usual money and weapons but also [[IncrediblyLamePun hearts]].

** The third game in the series, ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' has a nastier version in the Charm Vigor. It can be used to sway enemies into fighting with you, however when upgraded, the enemey will [[DrivenToSuicide kill themselves]] out of guilt for attacking their own friends when the vigor wears off. Usually while [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone crying out in anguish]] about what you have made them do.

Charm Person is some kind of magic, [[JediMindTrick supernatural ability]], AppliedPhlebotinum or CharlesAtlasSuperpower (achieved through impossibly high amounts of {Charisma}) that makes people want to do what you want them to do, especially the WeakWilled. May or may not have obvious parallels with hypnosis, which is not really anything like this.
