** In ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast A Link to the Past]]'', [[CourtMage Evil Wizard]] Agahnim [[EvilChancellor kills]] TheGoodKing, and brainwashes the soldiers, guards, and Knights of Hyrule into doing his bidding. As such, Hyrule's soldiers are out to get Link in the game. Early in the game, you can talk to one of the guards who mentions all of his fellow guards have gone mad, and now its starting to happen to him too. The guard is later replaced by an enemy. [[Spoiler:This seems to have been undone by the WorldHealingWave at the end as regular friendly guards are shown around the revived King of Hyrule.]]

** ''VideoGame/SuperMarioLand''. Much like Rocket Knight Adventures, the manual claims the alien [[BigBad Tatanga]] hypnotized the citizens, and animals of Sarasaland into acting as his soldiers instead of following Princess Daisy. Lets hope NonLethalKo applies for the {{Mook}}s defeated.

* ComicBook/TheJoker does something like this in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', but it's less "mass hypnosis" and more "mass insanity." Almost works, too.

* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'': ComicBook/TheJoker does something like this in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', but it's puts Ace, a girl with psychic powers, on television. The effect was less "mass hypnosis" about mind ''control'' and more "mass insanity." about causing the audience to be DrivenToMadness. Almost works, too.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/JessicaJones2015'': This trope is something that [[Creator/DavidTennant Kilgrave]] ''loves'' doing. In one episode, he makes an entire room of police officers point their guns at each other or their own heads to intimidate Jessica. In another, he makes an entire hospital full of people attack Jessica while he makes an escape.

* James H. Schmitz's 1962 short story "These Are The Arts". TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture a global television audience is hooked on a succession of "TV crazes". The latest one appears to the cynical to be an advertising gimmick for something called Galcom. Believers, entranced by the attractive Galcom Teachers and their beautiful Symbols, are convinced it's FirstContact. The Symbols are said to induce the development of telepathy in Earth's people so they can communicate with other members of the Galactic Community. Suffice it to say [[spoiler: it is not an advertising gimmick, but the Teachers are only the servants of another alien race which controls its captive populations via telepathy...]]
