** When the Jedi are interrogating the Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane, who certainly does not possess a weak mind, he is easily able to brush off a single Jedi's attempt. It takes a second Jedi joining in for him to notice it, and a third for him to really start feeling the effects. In the end, he ''still'' manages to resist, though doing so nearly tears his mind apart.

* Used in ''[[Literature/SholanAlliance Turning Point]]'' by [[http://www.sff.net/people/lisanne/ Lisanne Norman]]. Various forms of this trope appear through most of the sequels. The main characters ''are'' exceedingly strong telepaths, after all.

** ''VideoGame/StarWarsGalacticBattlegrounds'' is a real-time strategy game, VideoGame/AgeOfEmpires RecycledINSPACE. Jedi Masters can only be seen by other masters and by Bounty Hunters. They can also use the Force for the EnemyExchangeProgram. Even the Force is insignificant next to the power of Wololo!

* In ''VideoGame/SecondSight'', one of the powers the protagonist, John Vattic, unlocks is "Charm". This calms people down, allowing him to stop allies panicking (only useful in one mission, where he has to escort an ally from a [[GoAmongMadPeople mental asylum]], or more usefully generate a [[BystanderSyndrome Somebody Else's Problem field]]. This makes him essentially invisible (but guards still turn their heads to look at you, they just don't care). Obviously the effect doesn't work on machines, and if its used on someone who's attacking you then the feedback drains your [[ManaMeter Psi bar]].

* The short story "Bump" from ''Literature/FromACertainPointOfView'' is told from the perspective of the stormtrooper who falls for the mind trick in ''Film/ANewHope''. A mind trick seems to be most effective when it aligns with something the target wants; in this case, the stormtrooper was stressed and wanted to get a drink instead of do his job, so he was easily swayed. He later notices he has a headache for some reason and starts to realize what happened earlier in Mos Eisley.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rootkit Rootkits]] are a type of malware whose best-known trait is essentially employing this with computer systems. This kind of software infects systems by gaining and installing via its highest-possible privilege level access (e.g. UNIX's "root" account). The software can then conceal its own or another piece of software's presence by assuming control of all the system's other software, including any software trying to detect or remove it.

*** Subverted; a Jedi Knight tries to use the mind trick on the Bounty Hunter to get him to drop his weapons and come quietly. It fails miserably and [[NoSell just pisses the Bounty Hunter off]] who mocks him [[http://youtu.be/o2Nyu5q7j1k]]. However, [[spoiler:it works on their rival Tarro Blood, who proves to be WeakWilled enough to be persuaded into walking into a prison cell]].
