* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'', with a high enough Speech stat, you can convince people to do just about anything. (well, as long as you get a chance to, anyway). Similar to the ''Planescape'' examples above, having high (or extremely low) stat scores can also unlock unique dialogue options. ''Fallout 3'' changed many non-stat based charm, persuade and intimidation -type options to have a chance to fail, though, this was reverted in ''New Vegas''.

** Weirdly, it's very rarely acknowledged just how frightening the diverse array of mind-altering powers the Enchantment school of spells grants a wizard, up to and including [[MoreThanMindControl charming a person so thoroughly that they will kill themselves without hesitation if so commanded]]. In contrast to {{Necromancy}}, which is always seen as an evil magic, [[UnequalRites Enchantment has no negative moral connotations whatsoever]].
*** There is one exception: in the ''Literature/{{Dragonlance}}'' setting, Enchantment is considered just as much BlackMagic as Necromancy. This may be because the Kingpriest of Ishtar, an infamous tyrant, exploited Enchantment spells to maintain an iron grip upon his empire, using them to root out "thoughtcrime".
