Note that this rarely works well, 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. Of course FreudWasRight, and such brainwashing is often done as {{fanservice}}, if not outright subject to RuleThirtyFour.

Opinions aren't an example.
* A little-known example from ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'': During the fight with the second Black Waltz (when the party attempts to leave the Village of Dali), the Waltz will not attack Garnet/Dagger. This might sound as though it makes the fight a ForegoneVictory, but no. Should the other characters be defeated, the Black Waltz will use "Hypnotise" on Garnet, and the battle ends.

* Seen in the seventh ''VideoGame/DarkParables'' installment, where a HypnoTrinket has been keeping Literature/{{Rapunzel}} under a spell for centuries. It's an unusual situation, however, because the antagonist wants something that isn't often seen. [[spoiler:The antagonist in question is Rapunzel's little half-sister, Belladonna, who is a ClingyJealousGirl. Bella believes (not without justification) that Rapunzel is the only person who really loves her, and she doesn't want her sister to go away and marry the prince to whom she's engaged.]] Exactly how the issue gets resolved is [[MultipleEndings up to the player]].

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". How the damsel is controlled can be done by straight-up hypnosis, possession or a LovePotion (for either motive).

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).
