* 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.

* When Eric and Linda Strauss were DrFate, they fought {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}, and were losing badly. Then they cast one last spell on him, and he gets this look of utter confusion and despair on his face. He turns to them and plaintively asks "What have you done to me?" to which they reply that they've shared their love for one another with him. [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming Feeling love so discombobulates him that he surrenders]]. [[spoiler:Then one of his footsoldiers [[DiabolusExMachina kills Eric with a spear]].]]

* Alisha's power in ''{{Misfits}}'' makes anyone she touches crazy with lust for her. This often does more harm then good.

* Perona's Negative Hollow attack in OnePiece sends a ghost through the opponent that leaves them crippled with despair and depression (often wishing they were, say, some seaweed) though only lasting a few seconds. [[spoiler: Usopp, who already lacks self-confidence and spends a lot of time in a funk anyway, is immune to it.]]

* The teddy bear Franchise/{{Digimon}} Monzaemon with his CareBearStare-like Hearts Attack has an evil PaletteSwap called Waru Monzaemon with a Heart''break'' Attack. This reduces the enemy to a sobbing pile of {{Wangst}}. Sadly beaten just as he was [[CallingYourAttacks announcing it]] in ''Anime/DigimonAdventure,'' but we finally get to see it in action in ''Anime/DigimonFrontier.''

* It's implied that a slow-acting version of this mixed with mundane counterintelligence got to Denethor of ''LordOfTheRings'' (book only), finally [[DrivenToSuicide driving him to an attempted murder-suicide]]. This is why you shouldn't engage in direct psychic contact with the immensely powerful BigBad (Denethor has one of the palantíri, or Seeing Stones, like the one that Pippin took from Gandalf and looked in).

* The Nameless one from the Literature/BrimstoneAngels novel ''The Adversary'' is a Chosen of Shar (goddess of darkness, nihilism, and entropy) and carries a permanent aura with her that saps life and hope from anyone in the vicinity. Prolonged exposure is sufficient to reduce Sairche (who in addition to being a poised, composed villainess is a litera ''devil'') to a shivering wreck.
