* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', any mental manipulation, even for good reasons, tends to cause catastrophic harm to the subject. As a result, painting a proverbial smiley on someone's soul will get you executed by the magical authorities.

It's also [[ThisIsYourBrainOnEvil highly addictive]]: once you do it you're more and more prone to doing it over and over. As a result, painting a proverbial smiley on someone's soul will get you executed by the magical authorities.

* Benevolent example from ''{{Karin}}'': Karin has an affinity for unhappy people, and when biting them (which ''injects'' blood instead of sucking it out, because she's an unusual kind of vampire), she induces a temporary state of wellbeing, overflowing energy and general happiness. From what we've seen, this effect can linger for well over a week. Fortunately, the rest of her family can perform LaserGuidedAmnesia, and will generally 'clean up' after her, so her 'victims' don't remember anything - they just wake up somewhere feeling really, really happy!

* ''Fanfic/LinesAndWebs'' reveals that the Elements of Harmony have been tooled by Celestia to subconsciously do this to all ponies in Equestria as part of her UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans plan to end all violence and ''negative emotion'' in the world. The most prominent example is Twilight, who after figuring out the plan and trying to resist it, is blasted by the elements and MADE to accept.

Added DiffLines:

* Hive on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' is able to control Inhumans when its spores infect their brains which causes the victim's emotions to be heightened and Hive's presence filling a resulting emotional need (someone with a longing for family will come to see Hive as representing a family for them to belong to, for example), as well as controlling their dopamine levels so they feel pleasure from following Hive. They are thus doubly addicted: following Hive literally feels good and they think it's filling a missing part of themselves, an emptiness Hive itself created.
