The DamselInDistress or DistressedDude is in the clutches of the villain, but the villain decides that chains, cages, cells, and other ways of containment are too unreliable. The hardest chain for TheHero to break while freeing this prisoner is in the damsel's own mind. Thus the villain [[{{Brainwashed}} hypnotizes]] the damsel. As with SaveThePrincess, this need not be [[EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses a princess]]. It could be '''anyone'''.

The motives can be varied, but the two most common are (1) the villain wants the captive for a lover (this is easier than coercion), and (2) to make the captive betray the hero once "rescued". When done well, it has the bonus side effect of extremely demoralizing the hero, if the beloved princess he came all this way to save now wants to kick him out the window, or worse, [[LaserGuidedAmnesia doesn't know him at all]]. How the damsel is controlled can be done by straight-up hypnosis, possession or a LovePotion (for either motive).

* Jafar attempts to do this to Jasmine in ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', but when the Genie tries to explain he can't, she fakes it to distract Jafar. Jafar never attempts to use the MindControlDevice he ''already has'' to Hypnotize the Princess, but it's vaguely implied that said snake staff only works on weak-willed people (e.g. the Sultan) and RebelliousPrincess Jasmine is [[PluckyGirl too strong-minded.]] Even the Sultan does manage to snap out of the hypnosis on his own at least once. It also only seems to affect the victim while he's actually holding it in their face, making it impractical for long-term work. So basically, it's a [[TheDarkSide Sith]] [[WeakWilled Mind]] [[JediMindTrick Trick]].

* In ''[[Literature/TheChroniclesOfNarnia The Silver Chair]]'', the BigBad had hypnotized [[DistressedDude Prince Rillian]] into becoming a sort of EmptyShell without any memories of his past life as the Crown Prince of Narnia. [[spoiler:The spell wears off temporally every night, thus Rillian ends tied up to the eponymous Silver Chair when that happens so he won't escape. The PowerTrio frees him, though.]]
