* Happens near the end of the first season of ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', where [[spoiler:Kendra tries to awaken the PastLifeMemories of the [[{{Reincarnation}} reincarnated]] Carter. Unfortunately, he has already been brainwashed by Savage and turned into his PraetorianGuard. When Kendra gets close to Carter, he nearly chokes her to death, smirking when Ray manages to pull her away. As far as Carter is concerned, Kendra is Lord Savage's enemy and is just trying to trick him. The attempt also puts an end to Kendra's relationship with Ray, who realizes that he can't compete with 4000 years' worth of romantic memories. Eventually, it's not Kendra's words that awaken Carter's real personality but Savage threatening her. Only then does the memory of Prince Khufu awaken, he spreads his wings and attacks Savage. Savage stabs him but not fatally]].
* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Roy G. Bivolo "whammies" Barry into acting on his baser instincts.

Oliver is savvy enough to know talking won't work and tries to survive long enough for Wells and Joe to arrive with a "cure".

* A very slight variation is used in the ''GetBackers'' manga: When Ginji tries to fight the BrainwashedAndCrazy Kazuki, he's already pretty beaten up. He does try to appeal to "Kazu-chan's" true self, but doesn't get any results and focuses instead on appealing to Toshiki, the one currently in control of Kazuki and once a good friend of his. He finally resigns himself to death when Toshiki and Kazuki attack him together, as he can't bring himself to kill his friend. Cue Juubei's BigDamnHeroes moment.

* In ''Anime/MegaManNTWarrior'' and much better in the original Japanese Rockman.EXE with Dark Blues/Proto Man and Enzan/Chaud. Axess episode 49 is in fact widely considered one of the best episodes in the series due to how this was done.

* Subverted in ''VideoGame/MegaManStarForce''.
