* In the final battle of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaStrikerS'', Quattro uses her [[MasterOfIllusion illusion skills]] to perform this on the kidnapped [[CloneJesus clone of the]] [[GodEmperor last Sankt Kaiser]], with intent to sic her on [[spoiler:[[ActionMom her foster mother]]]], [[TheHero Nanoha]], who was coming to rescue her.

This rarely works , save for cynical enough stories. The EvilOverlordList would likely recommend this be done just to get her to cooperate in that quiet civil ceremony so you can [[AndNowYouMustMarryMe marry her]] with as little fuss if possible. Anything else is just asking for trouble.

* Either this or drugging was what made [[spoiler: Rose Thomas]] from [[Anime/FullMetalAlchemist the 2003 anime version]] of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' act as...''[[TheOphelia off]]'' as she did in the last arc of the series. [[spoiler: She gets better.]]
* [[spoiler: Nia]] in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'' becomes subject to this after the TimeSkip.
* In ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'' this happens to [[spoiler: Chrome Dokuro]] at the hands of [[spoiler: Daemon Spade]] after a failed attempt at getting [[spoiler: her]] to [[spoiler: FaceHeelTurn.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/SabansAdventuresOfTheLittleMermaid'', Marina gets this when a hypnotic flute puts her in a trance in "Sing Along with Witch". Happens again in "Hold That Thought." [[spoiler: Subverted in that she was faking it in the latter.]]

*** And with Jounochi in the same incident that got Anzu hypnotized. Then his BrainwashedAndCrazy self duels Yugi. Curiously, Mokuba was ''not'' hypnotized that time... because he was caught alongside Anzu and she actually got him free. [[spoiler: Kaiba frees the captured Anzu at the end of the duel to repay her for it.]]
* Gender inversion in ''Manga/FushigiYuugi''. Tamahome is kept at the Palace of Kutou and given a LovePotion in combination with a signal from Nakago's earring, so that he will ignore and mistreat Miaka and love Yui (who was also in love with Tamahome)...and not remember that he's on Team Suzaku instead of Team Seiryuu. [[spoiler: He overcomes it through the PowerOfLove.]]

* ''Literature/JourneyToChaos'': During the third book, ''Literature/ManaMutationMenace'', Lunas puts Kasile under his control in two steps: 1.) use his innate CharmPerson ability along with MoreThanMindControl to convince her to remove her anti-mind control circlet and put on his mind control necklace. It's designed to persuade her against ever removing it and resist anyone attempting to remove it for her. In this way he can effectively rule Ataidar without marrying her (which he still plans to do as soon as possible). [[spoiler: Eric has to use a series of {{Armor Piercing Question}}s to make her realize the truth and then she removes it herself.]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of Holy War]]'', [[MagnificentBastard Archbishop Manfloy]]'s evil plot was to brainwash Sigurd's HotConsort and the local Shaman Deirdre into [[BrotherSisterIncest marrying her half-brother Alvis]] to produce a vessel for a dark god.

** In ''Thracia 776'', [[spoiler:Mareeta]] is a variation. She's actually not hypnotized, but [[spoiler: forced to use an EvilWeapon that takes over her mind.]] She gets better, and ultimately [[spoiler: said EvilWeapon becomes her personalised sword.]]
** Don't forget Ninian in ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe The Blazing Sword]]'', brainwashed and forced to [[spoiler:open the Dragon's Gate and call a Fire Dragon]] by Nergal. Good thing her younger brother Nils showed up before it got very far and debrainwashed her! And later, [[spoiler: ''Nils'' himself almost goes through the same thing, but fortunately it fails.]]

* A common hazard in ''Franchise/MassEffect'', the villains being cyborg demigods capable of [[MoreThanMindControl indoctrinating]] most younger beings. This is played most straight in ''[[VideoGame/MassEffect2 The Arrival]]'', where Shepard is sent to rescue an Alliance scientist from the Batarians at Admiral Hackett's behest. [[spoiler: She was indoctrinated by the Reaper artifact she was studying before she was captured, and betrays Shepard soon after her rescue.]]
* Queen Sindel from ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' is brought back from the dead and brainwashed by Shao Kahn into being his queen. She pulls a HeelFaceTurn after her daughter [[spoiler: Kitana]] gets to her.
* Same goes for [[spoiler:Peach]] in ''VideoGame/PaperMarioTheThousandYearDoor''. Well, it's less "hypnotize" than [[spoiler: use as the new host of a SealedEvilInACan.]]
** And again in ''VideoGame/SuperPaperMario'', the BigBad's henchman does this for Bowser[[spoiler: as part of his own plan to [[RealityBreakingParadox destroy reality]]]].

** To be fair to the princesses of the WheelOfTime-verse, the Forsaken use [[MindRape Compulsion]] on just about ''everyone''; the princesses listed here just happened to be the ones in their way at that point in time.

* ''The Brides of Franchise/FuManchu'' might be more accurately titled: ''Hypnotize the Princess: TheMovie''. Although Fu displays no apparent interest in the women as literal "brides"; they are kidnapped to force cooperation with their scientist fathers.

* In the 1974 Japanese animated movie ''Anime / Jack to Mame no Ki'' The Evil witch puts the Princess of the Land of the Clouds, Princess Margaret under a spell to see her hideous son to be a handsome young man. This works and The princess nearly marries the son, almost allowing the evil mother to become Queen.

Because FreudWasRight, such brainwashing can sometimes be taken as {{fanservice}}, if not outright subject to RuleThirtyFour.

* A mild example in ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'', where [[spoiler: Gideon Graves has implanted a mind-control chip in Ramona's neck, making her go back to him and sit placidly beside his throne while he fights Scott]]. The film even gives a ShoutOut to the 1980 ''Film/FlashGordon'' mind-control ring by using its sound effect when [[spoiler:Gideon kisses Ramona's ringed hand]] during the Katayanagi Twins battle.

* Ming the Merciless pulls this on Dale in ''[[WesternAnimation/FlashGordon The New Adventures of Flash Gordon]]'', despite never having displayed mind control powers before or since. Then he actually "marries" her before Flash and company come to her rescue, although it doesn't have any lasting effects. (This was likely a deliberate homage to a similar sequence the first ''Flash Gordon'' movie serial.)
