* The plot of ''Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ'' involves the hunt for a linguistics expert who's discovered a [[LanguageEqualsThought language of genocide]] and is using it as a HatePlague. It's implied at one point that this can be spread via music, causing one of the {{Super Soldier}}s to attempt to shoot the protagonist.

* ''Film/Siren2010'': Silka is a siren, and her song has magical properties. Sung softly, it can hypnotise. Sung loudly, it can deafen and drive mad.

* A good example would be the Soviet Villains from ''{{DarthWiki/TheGingerverse}}''. They can even make their songs heard in several countries at once!

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' has a downplayed example with Emma, a deaf woman whose main power of "enhanced synesthesia" allows her to see sound waves as bright, flowing colors. A secondary power, though, gives her the ability to naturally draw others to her while she plays her cello. It's not exactly mind control, in that people aren't being robbed of their free will--they simply gather around to listen. Regardless, it's still [[LethalHarmlessPowers incredibly dangerous]] when combined with the villainous Samuel Sullivan's [[DishingOutDirt terrakinesis]]--he grows stronger as more individuals with enhanced abilities gather around him, so his EvilPlan in Season Five is to use Emma's "siren song" to bring thousands of people to the carnival he runs, which would supercharge his power to unstoppable levels.

* As the page quote indicates, ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' features recurring villain Ember [=McLain=], a ghostly punk rocker with the ability to control people's emotions via a spectral guitar; she also [[SayMyName draws power from people chanting her name]], and so brainwashed teenagers into a frenzy in her first appearance. Later, she used a more traditional method--backmasked messages in records--to hypnotize the adults of Amity Park into abandoning their children and powering a fleet of ships for Youngblood the Pirate, another ghost. Only Sam is not affected because of the Fenton Phones she wore the entire time.

In this case, Sam was the only person unaffected as she was wearing Fenton Phones (noise-cancelling, ghost-repelling earplugs) throughout the episode. Later, she used a more traditional method--backmasked messages in records--to hypnotize the adults of Amity Park into abandoning their children and powering a fleet of ships for Youngblood the Pirate, another ghost. Only Sam is not affected because of the Fenton Phones she wore the entire time.

* ''Series/WarOfTheWorlds''. This is the EvilPlan in "Choir of Angels", though only one person is the specific target -- a scientist working on the serum what will make the Martians immune to Earth's bacteria.
