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.

* GenderFlipped in ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid,'' when [[WickedWitch Ursula]] uses a combination of magic and [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess Ariel]]'s voice to make [[PrinceCharming Eric]] fall in love with her human alter ego, Vanessa. In this case she's not even interested in him, she just needs to keep him from Ariel long enough for her evil plan to work.

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.]]

*** 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 ''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.

* 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]]]].

* 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.
