** Son Goku attempts this with Vegeta during the Buu Arc. Subverted, as Vegeta willingly let himself become possessed by Babidi in order to increase his power. He does not even follow any of the wizard's orders, and can snap out at any time. He eventually does so, before knocking Goku out and making a HeroicSacrifice.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens with {{ComicBook/Rogue}} and ''{{Deadpool}}'' in ''{{Uncanny Avengers}}'' after the former gets mind-controlled by the Red Skull. Rogue attacks Deadpool, who dodges and screams for her to snap out of it. He avoids attacking her, and trying to shoot for Red Skull again, but Rogue jumps in the way of the attack. Luckily, Deadpool has Magneto's helmet in his backpack, which he manages to get on Rogues head, blocking Red Skull from her mind. Sadly, this wasn't done before he was beaten half to death by Rogue, who felt terrible afterwards.

Resulting in [[spoiler:Harvey fighting the other half, letting hostages go, and eventually trying to [[DyingAsYourself commit suicide]] so he cant hurt anyone else]]

*** In fact, during Rei's battle with her grandfather, there's a moment of [[GenreSavvy Genre Savviness]] when she says that her grandpa will snap out of it when his human conscious realizes that he's fighting his granddaughter. Naturally, just because she says it, [[EntertaininglyWrong that's precisely what doesn't happen,]] and so Sailor Moon must take the regular Moon Healing Escalation route to revert him back to normal.
