* Creator/PeterSellers, in the 1971 movie ''Hoffmann'', plays a rather more subtle and psychologically creepy version of the Terence Stamp character in ''The Collector''. Here, Sellers' character uses mind-games and psychological control to bend younger women to his will, forcing a young Sinead Cusack to strip for him and go to bed with him.

* ''Literature/TheEnemy''. The third book in the series features a sicko known as the Collector who, in addition to compulsively filling his house with junk, abducts children and "plays" with them until he kills them, at which point he goes out to find more. It takes the combined effort of [=DogNut's=] group (who have just lost [[TagalongKid Olivia]] to the Collector) and the kids from the Natural History Museum to bring him down.

* [[spoiler: Lusamine]] from ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'' is revealed to have had [[spoiler: her]] Pokemon cryogenically frozen, and is implied to do this routinely to Pokemon [[spoiler: she]] gets bored with. Also, while not quite to the creepy serial-killer-esque extent as other entries on this list, [[spoiler: her children, Gladion and Lillie]], claim that they were basically their mother's precious dolls rather than living people, in that she expected absolute perfection from them and strictly controlled every aspect of their lives to this end.

If he or she can make PeoplePuppets, then the [[AndIMustScream still conscious]] puppets will be forced to do things against their will. Someone with powerful enough HypnoticEyes or MindControl techniques can eventually program people to be anything from [[EmptyShell empty automatons]] to actually believing they're the collector's [[ReplacementGoldfish long lost dead little sister]]. A necromancer might dress up their zombies as {{maid}}s and butlers, and even lovingly comb their (remaining) hair, preferring their company to that of the living. The HiveQueen [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen may do this to her drones.]]

** One of the creepiest Batman villains - Lazlo Valentin, better known as Professor Pyg - turns people into androgynous, masked, puppet-like servants named Dollotrons. According to ThatOtherWiki the process of creating Dollotrons is implied to involve "brain surgery, genital mutilation, and mind-altering drugs."

* In Robert Jordan's ''Literature/WheelOfTime'', this is Graendal's hobby. She finds noble and/or handsome persons, enslave them using an extremely powerful mind control magic, and make them serve her, often in a humiliating and depraved way.

* In ''VampireTheRequiem'' and ''TabletopGame/VampireTheMasquerade'', this is very, ''very'' explicitly laid out to be one of the big dehumanizing aspects of the vampiric discipline Dominate. One bloodline in ''Requiem'', the Melissidae, are themed on wasps and bees, and have advanced powers that allow them to make people their mental puppets.
* Warhammer 40,000 has the mad Necron overlord Trazyn the Infinite, a robotic tyrant and historian whose "collection" of artifacts and individuals takes up most of the subterranean caverns of his throne-world of Solemnace. He is particularly keen on producing recreations of great moments and famous battles from history, using captured alien soldiers transformed into hard-light holograms and positioned accordingly. When his collection is damaged or disturbed by intruders he makes a point of seeking out fresh individuals to replace the losses - occasionally complaining that the squad markings and equipment of his victims is too different, and therefore his display is ruined.
