* Luke uses the trick successfully in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' on Jabba the Hutt's majordomo, but fails when he tries to influence Jabba himself; explained in the ExpandedUniverse as Hutts, one and all (but particularly the successful ones like Jabba), having the opposite of a weak mind.

* During the raid on Eternia Central Command in ''VideoGame/BravelySecond'', the party finds itself coming upon a group of guards on patrol. Tiz, who had just woken up, attempts this on the guards to get them to go away. [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments It works.]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ly-DoG8Wb0 In a scene cut from the original US version]], but present in the international ones, Film/AustinPowers hypnotizes a mook [[HeyItsThatGuy played by Christian Slater]]. First with "Everything seems to be in order!", then with "I am going to go across the street and get you some orange sherbet!" and "Here, have a piece of gum!" Turning this into a BrickJoke, as Austin and Vanessa are escaping from the CollapsingLair, the mook returns with the sherbet.

** Axii returns in the same capacity in ''Videogame/TheWitcher3WildHunt''. However, there are some scenes where it will not work at all and can make the situation a lot worse, usually if there are witnesses around to see you do it.

* As a spirit user, Lissa Dragomir from ''Literature/VampireAcademy'' is capable of these as well. She gets to use it to enter Tarasov prison while hiding Eddie Castile's real features and making Rose and herself appear as common humans.

* In ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', [[spoiler:this is one of Rey's first conscious uses of her powers. As she's just become aware of them, it takes [[RuleOfThree three]] efforts to do it on a Stormtrooper before it clicks - the first couple of times, the target is just annoyed.]]

** A Jedi Padawan attempts a mind trick on a [[LizardFolk Trandoshan]], who resists it; Chewbacca slugs him, and the Trandoshan suddenly becomes much more susceptible to persuasion.
* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'': Ezra repeatedly tries and fails, usually resulting in Kanan stepping in and doing it himself. In "Homecoming," Ezra finally got it right on an Imperial captain, but the first try still failed.

** Corran Horn, at a point where he's unaware of his Jedi heritage, succeeds with a nonverbal mind trick in the Literature/XWingSeries, making a searcher pass him by. After he learns of his Force abilities, he tries it again more conventionally, gets cocky about it, and fails miserably.

** In Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy, the clone Joruus C'baoth is, if anything, worse, since his Mind Trick apparently works by tearing apart the mind of the target and rearranging it to suit. He does this to a general, and it's... well, MindRape at its [[SarcasmMode finest.]] This extreme version apparently takes time, but the end result is that the general is reduced to nothing but an extension of C'boath's will [[spoiler: who dies of cortical shutdown a few hours after the disruption of the Force cuts him off from C'baoth's mind.]] He doesn't go as far with Captain Pellaeon, but the readers still see that while Pellaeon's ''mouth'' is agreeing, his thoughts are resisting in vain. The [[AllThereInTheManual Thrawn Trilogy Sourcebook]] states that Pellaeon's willpower was permanently eroded by this, although considering that this is [[BadAss Gilad Pelleaon]], this is still akin to eroding a few centimeters off the face of Everest.

** ''Literature/DarkLordTheRiseOfDarthVader'': Utilized by Bol Chatak and Olee Starstone in order to hold onto their Jedi equipment while disguised as ordinary prisoners. Roan Shryne, seeing the diminishing of the light side of the Force as a personal failure, isn't sure he can pull off the mind trick at all, but successfully uses it on a guard in order to escape when the prisoners are set to be transported offworld.
