* A popular ConspiracyTheory holds that blood drives are a "cover" for implanting mind control chips, and the secret was blown when someone ran a stud finder over his arm and found the chip. The Series/MythBusters showed that you ''can'' detect a microchip implanted under the skin with a stud finder (they borrowed a dog with an ID chip to practice), but found no chips in either Jamie or Adam after a trip to the Red Cross.

* ''Satellite Reign'''s equivalent of ''VideoGame/{{Syndicate}}''s Persuadertron is a Hacker skill called Hijack that lets you take over a target's neural implants. It greatly reduces your Hacker's maximum energy while in use, though. But, unlike Syndicate, Hijack can be used on just about anything that moves; including combat drones.
