* In the novel ''Literature/{{Hannibal}}'' Hannibal Lecter hypnotizes and brainwashes Clarice Starling, though there is some implication she has in part turned the tables on him and he's created a monster he can't control. [[spoiler: Specifically, when Hannibal springs his notion of Clarice "making a place" for his DeadLittleSister Mischa, Clarice not only suggests perhaps it's Hannibal who should "step aside" for Mischa, she ultimately turns his own BreakThemByTalking on him, including a Freudian analysis of a comment he made to Senator Martin back in ''Literature/TheSilenceOfTheLambs.'']]

* Film/RedEye anybody? The Jackson/Lisa relationship is ''built'' on this.
* HeathLedger's portrayal of the Joker from ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' has shades of this with everyone he comes into contact with, especially with Batman, Harvey, and Rachel.

Red X/Raven is getting to be a popular MindGameShip on FanfictionDotNet.

In any case, for [[FanGirl some]] people in the audience, they find all those mind games kind of [[FetishFuel sexy]]. Could be the StockholmSyndrome kicking in, or having a too literal interpretation of the expression "MindScrew" or could be the fact that getting to know someone well enough to play with their mind that way is kind of... intimate. And an excellent fodder for {{Dark Fic}}s.

** There's an awful lot of Joker/Batman shippers out there that find the comic version more fitting of this trope than the version in that film. Especially since in the comics, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker [[TermsOfEndangerment just]] ''[[TheNicknamer loves]]'' [[InLoveWithYourCarnage to play around]] with FoeYay so the fans don't have to, which the Nolanverse Joker never really does in quite the same way.

* ''Webcomic/GirlsNextDoor'': This is part of the dynamic between Jareth and Sarah, which is inherited from their canon (see in the fandom examples below). In the comic Jareth's romantic interest in Sarah is more clear cut... but him courting her still basically amounts to him screwing with her and trying to trick her. Deconstructed when she points out that ''this'' is precisely why she can't just get with him.

* ''Literature/KushielsLegacy'': Melisande Shahrizai is like this canonically with Phèdre. There appears to be some genuine love buried amidst the casual backstabbing.

* ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'' the back and forth between manipulative SerialKiller [[ImAHumanitarian Hannibal Lecter]] and [[TheMentallyDisturbed unstable]] [[TheProfiler FBI Profiler Will Graham]]. Hannibal's interest in Will becomes more of that of a StalkerWithACrush and [[TheCorrupter inspires]] him to [[DrivenToMadness cause]] Will's SanitySlippage. The further into the series, the more characters comment on their obsessions with one another, with one even confirming Hannibal loves Will and implies Will feels the same. The end of the series, confirms Will returns Hannibal's feelings, right before [[spoiler: [[TakingYouWithMe he throws them both off a cliff]] (though WordOfGod was that they survived and had the series continued, would've been on the run)]].



** Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham.
