* Rocko from ''Series/PuppetsWhoKill'' was brainwashed into becoming an assassin for the government in one episode. The trigger to switch him between normal and brainwashed was to show him a Jack of Diamonds. Naturally, this led to a whole bunch of stuff happening that made the two scientists stop and note that they shouldn't have used something as common as playing cards for the trigger.

At the end of the episode, the scientists attempt to remove the brainwashing and are seemingly successful... at least, until the local news introduces their new weatherman, Jack O'Diamond.

* [[spoiler:Boyd, aka "The Milkman"]] in ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'' apparently had some sort of subliminal trigger implanted in his already fragmented mind by the BigBad. When [[spoiler:Raz accidentally]] released that trigger while exploring his mind, he followed those implanted orders to destroy the asylum and cover up anything that went on there. [[spoiler:However, it takes him quite a long time to finally do it, because the final passcode hadn't been given. Fred says it completely by coincidence as he leaves the asylum.]]

** He goes even ''further'' in the special "The Assassin". He picks a susceptible person from his audience and then spends some time programming him to respond to the polka dot pattern (which puts him into a susceptible trance after which he doesn't remember anything) and a specific ringtone (that causes him to think he's still at the shooting range firing at a target). The only other thing that is required is someone to tell him who the target is. In this case, it's StephenFry. [[spoiler:The guy successfully "assassinates" the actor in the middle of a crowded theater; luckily, Derren is there to clear things up and remove the conditioning]]. Derren keeps referring back to the assassination of Bobby Kennedy, whose killer Sirhan Sirhan has been claiming for decades that he's been programmed by the CIA.

* The Clone Troopers from ''Star Wars'' are an ''army'' of Manchurian Agents. Palpatine had a series of genetic "orders" implanted in them that he could activate them when ready. Until then, the Clone Troopers simply acted as normal, friendly soldiers. The only order we see is [[ThePurge Order 66]], which, when said, caused every single Clone Trooper who heard it to instantly consider any Jedi a traitor to the Republic and attack them. He also had plenty of failsafes to keep them loyal to him and him only.
