** The more someone is exposed to Reaper tech, the more that tech enthralls them to the Reapers' will. Despite explicitly being the biggest threat to the Reapers, and despite the fact that they frequently try to indoctrinate Shepard, [[NoSell Shepard ''never'' shows signs of indoctrination]].

* In ''FanFic/TheBridge'', Rarity knows she isn't strong enough to hold off Enjin and save the civilians in harms way. So she knowingly releases Nightmare and lets her bond to her to recreate [[SuperPoweredEvilSide Nightmare]] [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW Rarity]], only to then mentally overpower Nightmare and take control of their body.

* ''Series/KamenRiderGhost'': The Necrom suit was originally constructed with {{Mooks}} as a power source, which became inconvenient to its user after losing the ability to summon said mooks. Then he got so fired up that he rewired the suit to essentially run on his desire to protect the world he came to love.

* In ''VideoGame/NocturneRebirth'', humans who are bitten by vampires usually become mindless Dark Disciples, become AxCrazy vampires, or become sane vampires. [[spoiler:Reviel bites Luna in the hopes of saving her and bringing her back as the third kind of vampire, but ends up with a Dark Disciple. However, seeing Reviel about to kill Ristill causes Luna to regain her sentience and convince him to show mercy. She's just that determined to get the two to make peace.]]

** Way cooler than any of these is Settra the Imperishable from the fantasy ''Warhammer''. In ''TabletopGame/WarhammerTheEndTimes'', the world is falling apart, Chaos is curbstomping the forces of Order all over the place, and at the height of their power all four Chaos Gods approach the greatest of the Tomb Kings and offer him ''absolutely everything'': wealth, power, a new body of living gold, even minor godhood. What does Settra do? He ''[[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu gives them the finger]]'', because [[BadassBoast Settra does not serve, Settra rules]]. Absolutely awesome.

* In Anime/DragonBallZ, the wizard Babidi has a mind control spell that works on anyone with evil in their heart and amplifies their physical strength as a side effect. [[AntiHero Vegeta]] is, by the point where Babidi is introduced, on the good guys' side but he's not pure of heart and thus placed under the influence of Babidi's spell. This is a spell that has worked on Dabura, the universe's version of Satan, and made him a loyal servant of Babidi, but the moment that Babidi gives Vegeta an order going against Vegeta's own interests (interest being [[BloodKnight fighting his rival]], command being to kill [[YouKilledMyFather Babidi's father's killer]] who's travelling with the heroes), he flat-out refuses, shocking both Babidi and aforementioned servant-Satan. Babidi isn't about to relent though, and commands every fiber in Vegeta's body to obey his command - It's at this point that Vegeta proves why he is the '''[[Pantheon/{{Pride}} God]]''' of {{pride}} here on [[HomePage TvTropes]] and breaks the mind control with the following quote:

* In ''Videogame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Paarthurnax notes that as a dragon, he is driven by his nature to dominate and destroy (doubly so since his name is draconic for "Ambition, Overlord, Cruelty") and that it takes great willpower on his part to not revert to his past self.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Meridia is a [[OurGodsAreDifferent Daedric Prince]] whose sphere is obscured to mortals, but is associated with LifeEnergy, [[LightIsNotgood Light]], and [[ProudBeauty Beauty]]. She was originally one of the Magna-Ge, the "star orphans" who [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere abandoned the creation of Mundus]] (the mortal plane) part way through along with their "father", [[ThePowerOfTheSun Magnus]]. However, Meridia was banished from [[SpiritWorld Aetherius]] for "consorting with illicit spectra", implied to be the Daedra. Considered a "trespasser" in Oblivion by the Daedra, Meridia, '' through sheer force of will'', "bent and shaped" the rays of Magnus to create her own [[EldritchLocation Daedric realm]] in Oblivion and became one of the Daedric Princes.

* ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'': [[spoiler:While Liu Kang and Kitana have chosen to embrace their new status as revenants]], Kung Lao, [[spoiler:disliking his current predicament, secretly desires to get out of the Netherrealm for good and come back to the side of light, but is unable to do so. In his arcade ending however, his cousin Kung Jin, who didn't give up any hope on him, helps Lao to redeem and purify his soul, showing that the heroic willpower of a Shaolin monk is much stronger than the Netherrealm's corruption. This implies that it is possible to revive the other revenants to the side of good, but since Quan Chi brainwashed them to the point that they only have pure hatred and was KilledOffForReal by Scorpion, being restored to the side of good is now a difficult process with [[FaceHeelTurn Raiden gone rogue now]].]]
