* As a pretty sucky version of this, Ciel of {{Tsukihime}} could only limit her Roa persona enough to kill everyone in her village ''slower'' than Roa normally would. And maybe less painfully. That's after weeks of shutting herself in her room so she wouldn't slaughter her unknowing family. Nevertheless, by the time Arcueid shows up to kill her, her effort has been in vain and the entire town has been turned to The Dead. It's implied that every host of Roa is like this because it isn't straight possession so much as adapting the host to his goals. Wherever he shows up on his reincarnation is generally a town full of The Dead by the time Arcueid stops him. Shiki is the hero, so in the route where Roa enters him he resists well enough to destroy Roa and also have partial control over his body. [[spoiler: It also helps that Roa did it in a bit of a different manner, AND there was less time at stake. Shiki was still approaching the point of no return, though.]]

See also HeroicWillpower, which may overlap if the controlling influence is TheVirus or a DemonicPossession. Contrast with PossessionBurnout.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' has this happen at the end of the 3.3 story with [[spoiler: Estinein, the Azure Dragoon who got possessed by his and his nation's greatest enemy, Nidhogg. Once the Warrior of Light defeats Nidhogg, the defiant dragon still tries to attack by using his spear, only for Estinien to regain contorl of his own body and forcing himself to drop the spear while choking himself. He then begs the Warrior of Light and Alphinaud to kill him so that Nidhogg would die with him. Instead, the two of them rip out [[EyesOfDoom Nidhogg's eyes]] that are fused to Estinien's armor and by doing so, the dragon's spirit is exorcised and is finally killed. Estinein survives.]]

* In ''Fanfic/SomebodyThatIUsedToKnow'', a non-possession variety of this happens after [[spoiler: Matt Engarde vanishes near the beginning of the story, and reappears a month later with a drastically altered personality and a badly healed scar over his left eye. From then on, Juan gets glimpses of Matt's old personality...often crying and begging Juan to stay with him, sometimes fearfully trying to warn Juan about something new Matt is going to do or has done...but it's never long before his new, sociopathic personality takes over again. Heartbreakingly enough, the new personality seems to have entirely won out by the end...

* Implied in ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' with [[spoiler:Jeanne, an ancient ghost driven by ThePowerOfHate to guard the Annan River against all trespassers. Nonetheless, she holds back on killing blows against Annie and Parley. Given how horrifically [[http://gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1315 lethal she can be]], Parley [[http://gunnerkrigg.com/?p=781 points out]] that Jeanne was holding back for some reason.]]

* 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.
