* During the quest "Here Lies the Abyss" in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition'', the Inquisitor and their party are [[spoiler:transported to the Fade (a place most people can only visit in their dreams)]] and must confront a character who can manifest their greatest fears in front of them. Each companion may comment about what it is they see; Cassandra sees maggots, for example, while for the Inquisitor it's spiders.

* '''Type 2: Fear Inducement:''' The power to [[YourWorstNightmare bring a person's fears to life]] without actually having any knowledge about what those fears are. This power does not deliberately cause a person to believe they are, for example, vomiting worms, it's just the effect of the power on that particular person. It is sort of like infecting people with dread.
* '''Type 3: Fear Invocation:''' The power to see a person's fears and[=/=]or show them their fears (if they have several). Control is near-absolute and often includes intensity and duration. A character with this power will usually have some kind of psychic or illusionary power to bring the fears to life.

* Wizeman from NightsIntoDreams, being the god and creator of nightmares, is implied to have this power. He can also alter the dreams of visitors or create nightmares in order to take advantage of these fears. He even uses it in the second game to steal Helen's red idea by removing all light from her dream (Helen is deathly afraid of the dark).

* A comic based on ''WesternAnimation/HeManAndTheMastersOfTheUniverse2002'' depicted the old toyline villain Scare-Glow as having Fear Invocation powers. He psychically discerns a person's greatest fear before trapping them in an illusion based on it. Apparently it's harder to figure out what certain people are afraid of, but he thinks that if he waits long enough he'll discover what even ''Skeletor'' fears, knowledge he can then use to free himself from Skeletor's service.

* A variation of Fear Inducement appeared in ''Creator/BrianMichaelBendis'' 's ''Comicbook/{{Alias}}''. In Volume Four, Jessica comes face-to-face with occasional ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' villain (and Jessica's archenemy) The Purple Man, whose body secretes chemical pheromones which, when inhaled or absorbed through the skin, allow him to control their actions by verbal suggestions. (The Purple Man, like ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'', is aware that he exists in a comic book). He orders Jessica to imagine the most horrifying thing she can envision, which turns out to be the corpse of her boyfriend (Antman II) covered in ants lying in her bed. The Purple Man comments that he wonders what she is seeing, guesses "it doesn't work that way."
