* Male Zuul from ''SwordOfTheStars'' are able to use their PsychicPowers to enforce dominance over people. They don't even need to give verbal commands; the affected simply ''know'' what is expected of them by instinct, and do it. And incidentally, if a Zuul is using Compelling Voice on you, it means it's playing ''nice''.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''LightNovel/MagicalGirlRaisingProject'', Ruler has this ability. It only works on one person at a time, so if she faces multiple people, she's in trouble.

Added DiffLines:

* Conan of ''Webcomic/{{Galebound}}'' has this power over Magicians. Judging by the relief his would-be assassin shows at being commanded to let Conan ''escape'', he's not the only one with this power.

** The "Bend Will" shout introduced in the ''Dragonborn'' DLC; it has the ability to turn enemies into allies, and it can even subjugate a dragon and force it to [[DragonRider become your steed]].

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has a few examples:
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', Lord Indoril Nerevar, [[spoiler: of whom the PlayerCharacter [[UnwittingPawn may or may not be]] a reincarnation,]] was said in the {{Backstory}} to possess "supernatural powers of persuasion," which were further enhanced by his Azura-blessed ring, Moon-And-Star, which the player can obtain. (It moderately raises the Speechcraft skill and Personality attribute, which raises NPC disposition towards the player.)
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' we get the Imperial races' Voice of the Emperor skill which calms nearby opponents. Its not entirely guaranteed, but useful in a pinch- especially at lower levels. The Nords in turn, have Battle Cry, but seeing as that's more of a general combat shout in application- it doesn't quite apply.
** Another Skyrim example is the "Bend Will" shout introduced in ''Dragonborn''; it has the ability to turn enemies into allies, and it can even subjugate a dragon and force it to [[DragonRider become your steed]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Tyranny}}'' features Sirin - [[MindControlMusic Archon of Song]] - who was born with this ability, though it's limited by a RestrainingBolt helmet installed by the local EvilOverlord. She lacked fine control of it as a child and tells the Fatebinder about how she sang to her unborn baby brother, asking him to be born as soon as possible; the results weren't pretty. In gameplay terms, her voice creates various [[StatusBuff buffs/debuffs]] centered around her location.

* Confessors in ''Literature/TheSwordOfTruth'' can do this to anyone they have touched with their power. Unfortunately, it's permanent, and they are enthralled to the Confessor for the rest of their lives. Kahlan, one of the main characters, is one of the most powerful, and can command people to voluntarily die (the Confessed will also die of grief if they know that the Confessor who controls them is going to die, and are released from Confession if it happens before they can react to it).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/TheWitchlands'': Wordwitches can enforce their will on people by talking to them, although the target is aware that they're being manipulated, and having some powers (like [[LivingLieDetector Truthwitchery]]) makes it harder for the Wordwitch's control to stick.
