* ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' establishes this as being the reason the clone troopers turned on the Jedi they had been working alongside for so long. Each one had a biological tumor-like chip implanted during the embryonic stage. They were set the activate when Palpatine gave the order "Execute Order 66", but one clone's activated prematurely and almost revealed the plot to the Jedi. Tup, the clone with the damaged chip, killed a Jedi while in a trance, but died despite attempts to stop the Kaminoans killing him and remove the chip. Fives, another trooper, found the truth about the chips, and tried to tell the Jedi, but they didn't believe him, and Palaptine faked an assassination attempt to get Fives killed and keep him quiet.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/EclipsePhase'' has a particularly insidious variety, commonly referred to as 'basilisk hacks'. Named for the mythological basilisk as they are usually vision-based, these hacks essentially play off how the brain is 'wired', causing it to 'execute' the encoded payload; this can be as simple as the classic example of SubliminalSeduction, or it can completely rewrite the victim's mind and personality, potentially turning them into a ManchurianAgent. Given the levels of complexity involved, basilisk hacks are almost exclusively the realm of the [=TITAN AIs=], which generally means they also do unspeakable things to the victims. The only way to effectively counter them is to either completely block out the pattern (i.e. blind or deafen yourself) or somehow distort the pattern by reducing image/audio quality.

** And then there's the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "The Game" where a simple PuzzleGame takes over the psyches of the crew. (Think of it as an allegory of what would happen if ''AngryBirds'' or ''{{VideoGame/Zuma}}'' was created with evil intent -- if such a thought really is a stretch.) [[spoiler:Fortunately, [[CreatorsPet Wesley Crusher]] makes a guest appearance just in time to save the day.]]
