*** Fun fact: Wolverine only ''got'' that way because Apocalypse was either going to choose ''him''... or [[PsychoForHire Sabretooth]]. Realizing that Sabretooth would never ''want'' to be snapped out of being "Death" (and would be unstoppable), the DangerouslyGenreSavvy Wolvie subjected himself to Apocalypse on purpose, with the hope that the X-Men would be able to pull him out of it. And they did.

* ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' has done this or this has been done to her several times during her career:
** In Supergirl vol. 5 #50, super-villain Insect Queen took over Supergirl's friend Lana Lang's body. While Kara beat her up, she tried to reach out to Lana.
--->'''Supergirl:''' : Lana, if you can hear meó SAY something! Lana! I KNOW you're IN there! Let her body Go, you insect FREAK! Get OUT!
** In ''ComicBook/RedDaughterOfKrypton'' Shioban runs into Supergirl right after her transformation when Kara is overwhelmed with rage. Shioban wonders what turned her best friend into that rage monster (she suspects drugs or poison) and she tries to reach her out.
--->'''Shioban:''' Kara...? I'm your friend, remember? Whatever's happened, you don't have to hurt anyone.

* Happened not once, but TWICE with Lewa in ''Franchise/{{Bionicle}}''. First his mask got replaced with an infected, mind-controlling one. Onua had to knock it off his face. Later, a Bohrok (which are machines controlled by an organic face-brain) places its Krana (face-brain) at Lewa, making him more than willing to join "the swarm" and "cleanse the island". Onua showed up again, but this time it was a IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight, as he refused to hit his friend. (Never mind that he gave Lewa a pretty good beating last time...) Lewa ripped the Krana of his face himself this time.

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'', the Bount arc featured the enemy Mabashi who used his doll to possess Rukia. This was followed by a prolonged battle between Rukia and her ally [[TheMedic Orihime]], in which Orihime (a peaceloving girl who's rarely willing to hurt even the ''villains'') refused to hurt her and [[TakeAThirdOption resorted to talking her out of it]]. Even when Rukia's companions (and pre-possession Rukia) are urging her to just go attack. She succeeds with a CooldownHug [[spoiler:mixed with her BarrierWarrior powers]].

** Rhodes and Tony Stark's rematch in ''Film/IronMan2'' [[spoiler:is a variation. It is clear that Rhodes is sane throughout the fight. However, the suit was reprogrammed remotely by Vanko, alongside the Hammeroids to cause havok, meaning they literally have no other choice but to fight.]]

* In ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' Entry #62, it is implied that this was Jay's plan when he rushed to confront Masky aka the BrainwashedAndCrazy [[spoiler:Tim]] in Rosswood Park. However, he gets his ass kicked and dragged deep into the woods before he has the chance to try this.
* During the final battle of ''[[WebVideo/TheCartoonMan Journey of the Cartoon Man]]'', Roy manages to snap [[spoiler:Valerie]] out of Oswald Sherzikien's mind control by means of [[spoiler: [[RunningGag salsa dancing.]]]]
* In ''WebAnimation/XRayAndVav'', this is successfully pulled off when Hilda is able to bring back her RobotBuddy O.R.F. from being BrainwashedAndCrazy. The Mad King promptly lampshades this by asked "What is this Disney ''bullshit''?"

* ''Comicbook/PowerGirl'':
** Simultaneously played straight and lampshaded in "Power Girl" issue 10. When Terra was [[spoiler: [[GrandTheftMe taken over by the Ultra-Humanite]]]] and fighting Power Girl she kept taunting PG.
--->'''Terra[[spoiler:[[GrandTheftMe Ultra-Humanite]]]]''': Let's have one of those totally cliched hero-slash-friend fights. You get to say things like, "I know you're stronger than this", or "You can fight it"... oh, and "This isn't you"! And I'll say things like... "I know your secret identity" and "All the people you care about are going to die!"
** In Power Girl's {{crossover}} with ''Justice League: Generation Lost'' Power Girl has been {{brainwashed}} into believing that the members of the Justice League International are other heroes planning to conquer and rule humanity. The members of JLI, dreading the destruction and loss of life that would come from fighting Power Girl in earnest (Assuming they could ''survive'' such a fight), try to get through the brainwashing and have her recognize them.
