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."
