* Doctor Doom has a Hypnoticon device that can put hypnotic commands in the minds of others. If a command goes against the victim's morals they can resist it.

** Doom himself has a villainous version. ''Any'' kind of mind control that attempts to make him follow the orders of another [[NoSell is going to fail]], because giving orders is what ''[[AGodAmI Doom]]'' does.

* ''Literature/TheDarkElfTrilogy'' reveals that Drizzt Do'Urden's father was, like himself, a rare 'Good' Drow Elf. After Drizzt turns his back on his people and escapes from Menzoberranzon, vengeful High Priestesses of Lolth brings his father back from the dead as a sort of semi-zombie - undead, but still possessing the skills of his former life. The reason being, of course, that Drizzt has proven too fearsome a fighter for all their assassins so far, so they figure that bringing back the man who taught him to fight might be their only shot. During the final confrontation between Drizzt and his zombified dad, pops managed to break free of the priestesses' control for just long enough to give a final farewell to his son, and then jump into a pool of acid so he wouldn't be able to hurt him.

* Hypnotism works like this. To be hypnotized, the person must ''want'' to be hypnotized, and while under hypnosis, will not perform any action that goes against their morals. All hypnotists, stage practitioners and therapists alike, agree that this is true.

* In the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Closing Time," The sound of his baby crying is the only thing that breaks Craig free from Cyberman mind control. In fact, the feedback is powerful enough to destroy the ship.
--> '''Craig''': I blew them up! I blew them up with love!
--> '''The Doctor''': Well, actually, the instinctive mammalian drive to protect your offspring created a feedback effect so powerful that... [[DoingInTheScientist all right, yes, you blew them up with love.]]

** Another Cyberman example: in "Doomsday", the former head of Torchwood is able to rebel against the Cybermen due to her UndyingLoyalty to the nation of England.
** The Cybermen [[RuleOfThree seem very bad at dealing with this]]: in "Death In Heaven", [[spoiler:Danny Pink]] is able to remain free-willed even after his emotions are removed due to his [[ThePowerOfLove love for his girlfriend]]. As the Doctor puts it: "Love isn't an emotion; it's a ''promise''."
