* An interesting case in ''Anime/{{Brave 10}}''. As revealed, [[spoiler:Anastasia served Hanzo in the first place because Hanzo was holding her family heirloom that she has been looking for since childhood and her parents dead, at first playing it straight. Over time, however, she developed into a cold BrokenBird IceQueen that is nearly as bad as Hanzo himself (though not quite), therefore subverting it. Once Hanzo's dead, however, she actually regretted that her whole life as an evil assassin has been for naught, since she found out that the heirloom was fake, thus making it somewhat of a double subversion.]]

Contrast with {{Brainwashed}} and FaceMonsterTurn tropes, where the character is forcefully modified and robbed of free will to be steered into evil, or MindRape where they were wrecked so hard their free will wasn't working straight to steer them into evil. Not so for this character, this character knows what he/she is doing and had their free will intact and straight, but still couldn't do a thing to resist the forcing... for the moment. Also compare with MoreThanMindControl where the character is coerced mentally into believing that the only way available is something that he/she doesn't like, thus being forced to make a free will choice of steering themselves into evil.

May also overlap with TrappedInVillainy, and turn this character into a RegretfulTraitor.

Contrast with {{Brainwashed}} and FaceMonsterTurn tropes, where the character is forcefully modified and robbed of free will to be steered into evil, or MindRape where they were wrecked so hard their free will wasn't working straight to steer them into evil. In that case they didn't really make a choice and weren't really even themselves. Not so for this character, this character knows what he/she is doing and had their free will intact and straight, but still couldn't do a thing to resist the forcing... for the moment. They have a choice it is just a very,very harsh one and possibly a choice to die. Also compare with MoreThanMindControl where the character is coerced mentally into believing that the only way available is something that he/she doesn't like, thus being forced to make a free will choice of steering themselves into evil.

May also overlap TrappedInVillainy is a subtrope where ''forced'' is akin to having them and/or their loved ones threatened with TrappedInVillainy, and death or worse, which can turn this character into a RegretfulTraitor.



* ''Anime/SailorMoon'' loved this trope, especially during the Dark Kingdom arc, ranging from brainwashed random innocents-of-the-week up to the horrifying [[spoiler:brainwashing of Endymion/Mamoru- sure, it didn't take at first, but after the second go he pretty much beat Usagi within an inch of her life before [[ThePowerOfLove Usagi tearfully reminding him of their history together, holding out their music box locket]] snapped him out of it. And, according to the [[Manga/SailorMoon manga]] continuity and a blink-and-you-miss-it reference near the end of the season, the four Dark Generals/Shittenou all suffered this fate, too, being brainwashed by Beryl and Metallia the same way Endymion was. This might suggest some semi-failed brainwashing on the part of [[HeroicSacrifice Nephrite]]...]]
