* In Harry Turtledove's ''{{Worldwar}}'' series, the female aliens go into heat when exposed to ginger (and their pheromones drive nearby males into a mating frenzy). So the clever earthlings use ginger bombs.

* The Psycho-Man, a villain from MarvelComics, has three settings on his emotio-caster: Fear, Hate, and Doubt (the last of which has similar effects to Despair, but is less likely to produce suicides). Usually he is a serious villain who uses the 'caster to MindRape his foes, but on one occasion he attempted to get the rather stupid "hero" Drax the Destroyer to do his bidding and was brought to lament that he needed some new settings on the thing,--hate made Drax lash out at everything including him, while fear and doubt made him cower.
* WonderWoman has an aura of truth, such that it's nearly impossible to lie to her face even when she's not using the magic lasso on you, and weaker minds are liable to just start spilling their guts from sheer proximity. [[DependingOnTheWriter Some writers]] extend this into a sort of aura of trust, making people calmer and more amenable in her presence to a supernatural degree even beyond what you'd expect from a hero of her stature. Genocide, a recent new foe of Wonder Woman's, being an [[BadFuture evil frankenstein version of herself]], has traded in the aura of truth and trust for the more standard villainous aura of despair and loathing.
* The SevenDeadlySins from TheDCU are demons who can make people fall under the influence of their respective sins. One villain Sabbac briefly merged with all seven demons and gained their powers. The first thing he did was to use Lust to make a prison complex have a massive orgy [[ForTheEvulz just for kicks]].

* Turahk from ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}'' has this power. It is so powerful that [[spoiler: Jaller actually died from a Fear blast. He got better, though.]]

* Two of the Rahkshi from ''{{Bionicle}}'' have this power; Turahk triggers fear and Kurahk triggers anger. Makuta Vamprah also wears a Mask of Hunger, allowing him to feed off emotions and other metaphysical things (like energy or a person's goodness).

* Tamami Kobayashi from part 4 of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventures'' has a Stand called The Lock. It manifests inside a victim when they experience guilt, passively amplifying the sense of guilt and physically weighing them down. The more guilt a person feels, the larger and heavier The Lock becomes. If the Lock becomes large enough, [[PsychicAssistedSuicide the victim can be driven to commit suicide under the weight of their guilt]].

* Zophise, the BigBad of a story arc of ''Manga/GashBell'', is able to manipulate the demons of a thousand years ago into fighting for them by making them believe that, after being freed of their stone curse, that Zophise can ''return them to stone at will''. After spending 1000 years utterly immobile, that fear is enough to get them to do anything for him.

* In Manga/{{Naruto}} when confronted by Orochimaru in The Forest of Death during the Chuunin Exams, Sasuke and Sakura are paralyzed by fear from just one of his Evil Glares. Sasuke had to stab himself in the leg with a kunai in order to "wake up", grab Sakura, and escape before Orochimaru's kunai could finish them off (right in the forehead!).

* The Morrigi's favorite trick in the ''Franchise/MassEffect''/''VideoGame/SwordOfTheStars'' FusionFic ''FanFic/ShepherdOfTheStars'', because of their affinity for Emotion Control. The Asari are rapidly learning how to do it too. Thane gets hit by a particularly nasty one midway through the story and has yet to fully recover.
