This lead to a MemeticMutation where a darker version of Hisui called the "Brainwasher Detective" would point at people and spin her finger to hypnotize them into being criminals so she could arrest them. This occasionally shows up in {{Mythology Gag}}s such as her attacks in ''VideoGame/MeltyBlood'' or ''BattleMoonWars''.
