* The Advent in ''SinsOfASolarEmpire''. Following the game's emphasis on GreyAndGrayMorality, it has both [[{{Telepathy}} good]] and [[MindRape bad]] applications.

* The Final Five Cylons attempted to do this in ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'', however it also let them all see each others' memories which [[spoiler: revealed to Tyrol that Tory killed Cally. Cue the killing.]]

* On a similar note, this is what apparently happens in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeboqg4t9vs Helios ending]] of the endings of
''VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar''. All humans are united by/in a global network where they can share their minds with each other. How much of their identity do they retained is uncertain. According to [[spoiler: the JC Denton humanoid terminal of the A.I.]], "Helios will communicate, not assimilate. Life will go on as usual."

* In ''VideoGame/{{Psychonauts}}'', an accidental version of this is [[spoiler: the final level of the game. The "Meat Circus" is caused by Raz and Coach Oleander's minds fusing together in the brain tank, combining Raz's childhood memories of the circus with Oleander's memories of his father's butcher shop. The result is as terrifying as you'd expect.]]

** On the ''City of Villains'' side we have the Arachnos Seer Network, obviously used for more sinister purposes. The Seer Net is the collective minds of all Arachnos psychics, some of which are mutant, but most of which [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower just receive a remarkably specific mental training program]] for anyone with even a hint of a sixth-sense. To ensure loyalty the network not only acts as a communication and training program, but also a PsychicBlockDefense, achieved by beaming their loyalty to Arachnos over and over again into their subconscious. When Fortunata's and Seers access the network to communicate with the others of their station, they are effectively syncing-up as a country wide Mental Fusion with every other Arachnos psychic to problem-solve complex issues in seconds. This only becomes more terrifyingly efficient when added to the fact, that the guy giving them orders, though not a psychic himself, has more thought-processing power than the entire rest of the network put together! Needless to say, [[HeartIsAnAwsomePower despite just being a communication network, this is one of Arachnos's most potent tools]].

* On a similar note, this is what apparently happens in the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zeboqg4t9vs Helios ending]] of the endings of ''VideoGame/DeusExInvisibleWar''. All humans are united by/in a global network where they can share their minds with each other. How much of their identity do they retained is uncertain. According to [[spoiler: the JC Denton humanoid terminal of the A.I.]], "Helios will communicate, not assimilate. Life will go on as usual."

* In ''VideoGame/CityOfHeroes'' we have the two psychic members of the [[BigDamnHeroes Freedom Phalanx]], [[RedOniBlueOni Sister Psyche and Aurora Borealis]], the former was dying from injuries and the later was an UnskilledButStrong young psychic who agreed to let Psyche possess her to cheat death. In this case, Psyche' going into a comma allowed doctors to stabilize and attempt evasive medical techniques to save her body, mean-while Psyche's continued to patrol the city in Aurora's body, she shifted the situation from GrandTheftMe to SharingABody. As a single being Psyche'/Aurora was/were able to do phenomenal things. Psyche' willingly returned to her body a few decades later, once medical technology advanced enough to reconstruct her tissue damage. She was willing to give up the fusion, so as not to impose on Aurora. The two are still able to coordinate remarkably well, with or without telepathy, just from previously existing on the same mental wave-length and completing each-others sentences is not uncommon when the two are in the same room.

** It turns out that [[spoiler:the Reapers]] are similar to the Geth except the individual "programs" [[spoiler:are what's left of the minds of the people used as the raw material to create Reapers.]] The so-called "Heretic Geth" are Geth who wanted to take a shortcut to the Geths' long term goal [[spoiler:by serving the Reapers in exchange for a Reaper body that can host all of the Geth programs at once.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Starcraft}}'', this is the basis of the Protoss religion, called the Khala. Protoss are universally psychic, and evolved a super-powerful collective consciousness that manifests as magic-like abilities. Communion with this "Khala" is actually touching all the minds, thoughts, and emotions of the Protoss race at large. However, there is a small group of heretic protoss who fear that this will, one day, completely subsume their personalities, and take steps to sever themselves from it permanently (they evolved their own culture).

"Sever" is rather literal in this case, since they accomplished this by cutting off their hair-like nerve cords. [[spoiler:And it turns out this communal mental link was nothing more than Amon's leash. When he is revived he psychically dominates most of the Protoss barring those whose nerve cords were severed.]]

* Near the end of his ongoing solo, after a lot of CharacterDevelopment, the mutant multiple personality David Haller learns to trust himself enough that he starts merging with his personalities rather than forcibly draining their powers. Eventually he effectively cures his DID by merging with them all.
