* In ''VideoGame/{{Sacrifice}}'' the Firefist unit is a troll that's been brainwashed by the fire god Pyro. Their StopPokingMe dialogue has them start to overcome the conditioning with a triumphant chant of "Troll! Troll! Troll!".....and then start screaming for a while before brokenly giving the standard "clicked on" line. Seems Pyro knew what he was doing.

* This happens a ''lot'' in ''Franchise/YuGiOh'' when a protagonist is possessed or brainwashed, though normally downplayed in the 4kids dub.
* During the "Monster World" arc in the ''Manga/YuGiOh'' manga, Bakura fights against the soul of the Millennium Ring in this way, managing to regain control of whatever body parts are severed from Zorc in-game. He manages to save the party from certain death by using his left hand to throw fixed dice, and miscalculating stats; that is, until Dark Bakura impales his hand on the scenery.

* The plot of the ''{{Dragonlance}} New Adventures'' initial series is composed of the bad guy's plots to make sure the evil persona implanted in Nearra wins. Until about the 4th book, the evil persona had only occasional moments of dominance, but after that she was constantly having trouble with Nearra yelling at her inside her head.

Satoshi usually can't take back control of his body, but he can distract Krad, paralyze some of his power, and/or hold him somewhat immobilized during the internal struggle.
