** The Sega Genesis game, ''[[VideoGame/TinyToonAdventuresBustersHiddenTreasure Buster's Hidden Treasure]]'' has MadScientist Dr. Gene Splicer use spiky mind control helmets on Plucky Duck, Hamton Pig, Dizzy Devil, and Calamity Coyote. They are all fought as boss fights, though in order to win, Buster must hit the one controlling them (Splicer) rather than his BrainwashedAndCrazy friend -- recall that the mind control helmets are ''[[TheSpiny spiky]]''.
** In the Super Nintendo Game, ''Buster Busts Loose'', Splicer uses a mind control helmet on [[Main/MixAndMatchCritters Melvin the Monster]], much like he did in the episode, "Hare Raising Night". To save Melvin from Splicer's mind-control, Buster must destroy Splicer's machine by kicking the screwbolts Melvin tosses at him towards it.

* An inversion of the trope is used in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid''. When Ursula directly intervens in the goal by disguising herself as RomanticFalseLead Vanessa, it's clear that a Hypno Trinket is involved. Said Hypno Trinket (a necklace with a big shell that has Ariel's voice inside), however, is worn by Vanessa -- and she uses it to place Prince Eric under mind control. When Ariel's animal friends attack her, they shatter the shell and both free Eric ''and'' return Ariel's voice to her.
