* In Season 4 of ''Series/BlakesSeven'', the Terran Federation is suddenly able to [[EasilyConqueredWorld reconquer several planets]] they lost during the upheavals of the past year. Turns out they've developed a drug called Pylene-50 that blocks the production of adrenaline. It's hard to resist a tyranny when you can't get angry or aggressive about it.

While every Joiner is shown to be feel peaceful, serene, and content to be part of "the Nest," and decline all offers to find a cure, just as many most non-Joiners express disgust horror and revrevulsion at the idea of being {{mind rape}}ed and {{brainwashed}} by alien insects, and many contented Joiners are implied to have not first undergone the Joining willingly. Given how the Joining involves chemically and psychically flooding the Joiners' minds with the thoughts and feelings of the entire HiveMind until their own thoughts and feelings are completely drowned out, it has some pretty disturbing implications for most seemingly content Joiners...

* There is a case of a man who lost his ability to feel negative emotions after suffering a stroke that damaged his Limbic system, the parts of the brain involved with generating and regulating emotion. He is now ''constantly'' happy, unable to feel anything else even at the funerals of close friends and relatives, having essentially had [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul smilies branded onto his brain]]. How does he feel about this? [[CaptainObvious Happy of course]].

* ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': An episode featuring Garak reveals that he became a victim of this. Originally, he had an implant in his head that would give him euphoric hormone rushes if he was ever subjected to torture (so that he could never be forced to reveal important secrets). Living in exile on the station, he is miserable and has little hope of ever returning home. So he built a controller that would let him turn on the euphoria device whenever he wanted... and, one day, he turned it on and never turned it off. Unfortunately, the device was neither intended nor designed for long-term use; Garak, having become completely dependent on the device to even feel normal, is left in near-crippling pain as it breaks down. The worst part, is that he is ''still'' dependent on it even as it slowly kills him: his mind doesn't clear from the euphoric effects until they actually turn it off to stop the damage it's doing to his nervous system.

* One ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} arc has him face the "Messiah", a giant alien being whose mere presence creates a state of bliss, which eliminates free will in the process. Deadpool himself is immune due to his cancerous, constantly regenerating brain, and manages to kill it.

* In the Doctor Who fanfic, [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10264175/1/Time-and-Space Time and Space]], it is revealed in Chapter 6 the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monster of the week]] is feeding on the negative emotions of the passengers of a cruise ship set adrift, leaving only the positive ones. The results are creepy.
