* Rabbit of ''Franchise/WinnieThePooh'' whose overattention to detail and zero tolerance for his friends' nonsense often leads to him acting as this. A nightmarish dream sequence in ''Springtime For Roo'' portrays his overbearing demeanor as becoming so intolerable that everyone in the Hundred Acre Wood leaves home just to get away from it all.

* In ''Manga/FutureDiary'' [[spoiler:Yuno]] had a [[AbusiveParents control-freak mother]] who measured everything she did from how many hours she got to sleep to how many calories she had a day. She also kept her in a cage and starved her in an effort to raise her to be a model person. If you ever wondered why [[spoiler:Yuno]] is so utterly messed up, look no further.

* In ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', the Party are an extreme variant of control freak, and nowhere is this more evident than in the concept of {{Thoughtcrime}} -- they have made even ''thinking'' against the government a crime.

When Music/TheBeatles version of ''Twist and Shout" became a hit again after being in the movie ''Film/FerrisBuellersDayOff'' [=McCartney=] was upset because a marching band in the movie was playing horns on it. Never mind the original Isley Brothers version actually did have horns on it!

* [[TheProtagonist Troll prince Tristan]] from ''Literature/MaledictionTrilogy''. He is so single-mindedly devoted to his one cause (overthrowing his father and improving the life of his subjects) that he wants to control everything: those around him (and he has [[IKnowYourTrueName magical means]] to do it), his speech and facial expressions, even his feelings for his wife. He gets called upon it. Several times.
