Compare AssimilationPlot, where the goal of ThePlan is to create this on a universal scale. Compare HiveMind, which is when a usually involuntary and permanent version of this happens and all sense of self or individuality is lost. May coincide with FusionDance. See also MindLinkMates and TwinTelepathy. [[SideEffectsInclude Side effects may include]] creation of a LivingMemory inside participants' minds, speaking in unison, GlowingEyes, BattleAura, PowerFloats, and drowsiness.

* In Creator/EdmondHamilton's ''Return to the Stars'', alien invaders resort to that in order to get details about a superweapon after a normal MindProbe fails to get them from the main character. Since all he knows is ''how'' to use it, they don't learn anything useful... but the hero learns the location of their fleet.

* In [[TheBookoftheNamed Clan Ground]] Thistle-chaser has the ability to "hear the song" - that is, to join in the hive mind that unites True-of-Voice's clan. Unlike them, she also has the ability to tune the song out. In a later book, her brother is shown to have the same ability.

* ''TabletopGame/InNomine'' has the Ethereal and Celestial Songs of Unity, the first just allows skill sharing among a group, the second creates a full-fledged MentalFusion of the "mob" type, each body can act separately and the mass mind can use all their skills and abilities (although it can only take one *supernatural* action at a time) and can see, hear and so on from the point of view of all bodies simultaneously. The problem with the Song is that if the participants don't get along, the massed entity created from them may dither and delay due to the conflict. Also, the participants memories of the actions taken by the mass mind will be sketchy.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Ar Tonelico 2}}'', the various modes of the [[KillSat Infel Phira]] amounts to this. Replakia combines dozens of spellcasters to boost the damage of attack spells to an impressive levels, while Metafalica is a more through MentalFusion that is used to get enough power to create a FlyingContinent . A few other modes are used for mind control instead.

* ''Webcomic/AMiracleOfScience'' has a single massive MentalFusion forming the gestalt mind of Mars. Unusually, it's one of the good guys.

* Mind links have been used several times in DoctorWho, including in 'The Girl In The Fireplace' (between the Doctor and Madame de Pompadour), in 'Planet Of The Ood' (between the Doctor and Donna, so she can hear the Ood singing), and in 'Bad Wolf' (between the Controller and her masters, [[spoiler:the Daleks]]) Physical contact was used in the first two examples, which were also temporary.
