* Soothing and Rioting are powers in ''Literature/{{Mistborn}}'' that allow you to do this- a Rioter can inflame emotions, a Soother can dampen them, and a full Mistborn can do both ([[EvilOverlord The Lord Ruler]], for example, turned himself into a walking EmotionBomb, dampening all emotions in about a mile radius around him apart from fear and despair). However, a Soother or Rioter can't ''sense'' emotions, so they need to be very good at reading people to get the results they want.

* DC Comics' Psycho-Pirate, has alternately either had a mask that allowed him to project emotions into people or has been an "emotion vampire", able to drain emotions from people. The first mask often seems to work through intensifying emotions a person already feels, no matter how small.)
* This was the mutant power of Manual "Empath" de la Rocha of the [[ComicBook/NewMutants Hellions]].
* MarvelUniverse's Hate-Monger used to have to use a "Hate-Ray" to project hate, anger and fear into people... but after he [[DeathIsCheap died and was resurrected]], he was able to do the same without the ray. [[spoiler: Oh, also he's [[UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler Hitler]].]]
** Another Marvel villain, the Psycho-Man, used an emotion controlling device that could instill fear, doubt and hatred. In one arc he built a new Hate Monger, a {{Humanshifting}} android who infiltrated various hate groups in different disguises to spread a HatePlague.

* In the ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' fanfic ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'', this is what the "Inducer" class of psychics are capable of, coupled with more outright MindManipulation and the periodic EmotionBomb. One of them uses these abilities to [[spoiler: take over an entire village and turn them into a killer mob]], and later [[spoiler: causes an entire space station of hundreds of people to turn on each other in a murderous fury]]. The same Inducer also uses these powers to [[spoiler: MindRape River and turn her into an effective bodyguard/human shield.]]

Unlike the subtropes, EmotionControl does not necessarily require magic, superpowers or supertech. It can also be done by an [[ManipulativeBastard extremely manipulative character]] or by mundane brainwashing techniques, making it MoreThanMindControl. Most {{Emotion Eater}}s and higher-end versions of TheEmpath have this as a RequiredSecondaryPower.

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-288 SCP-288 ("The "Stepford Marriage" Rings")]]. When an appropriate woman wears one of the "female" rings, she displays very few (if any) negative emotions.
** [[http://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-708 SCP-708 ("The Big Orange Forklift")]]. When someone looks at SCP-708 for more than 20 seconds they become extremely enthusiastic about it and want to operate it. Anyone restrained from operating it will engage in emotional outbursts like a young child. Anyone who has been looking at SCP-708 or has operated it before feels jealousy at seeing anyone else operating it.

The SuperTrope of EmotionBomb and GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul, a character who can do EmotionControl often has one or both of these powers in his toolbox. SupernaturalFearInducer is a subtrope where the control is over fear alone.
