A character is attacked by a villain in the most painful non-physical way possible: Their mind and [[OurSoulsAreDifferent soul]] are assaulted with painful, horrifying visions, sensations, and/or memories, and their will and sanity broken until afterward they're [[HeroicBSOD powerless, hopeless]] and [[ConvenientComa numb]], but [[EmptyShell not dead]], although they [[FateWorseThanDeath may wish they were.]] Minimal to no sexual contact actually occurs, but as the name indicates, everything else is there to resemble a rape - the ultimate violation of privacy and consent, extreme humiliation that annihilates all sense of self-esteem, near-absolute helplessness even against your very own mind and body, and the corrupt perversion of what could otherwise be a source of identity and joy.

Comes in two variations: one is a [[BreakThemByTalking completely "mundane"]] but no less horrifying brand of [[ColdBloodedTorture torture]] that nonetheless [[ArmorPiercingQuestion breaks a]] [[TwoPlusTortureMakesFive character's mind]]. The other is the above done via MindProbe, PsychicPowers, BrownNote, [[PsychologicalTormentZone illusions,]] or seeing [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow something Man Was Not Meant to Know]], like for example encountering an EldritchAbomination; even so much as ''looking'' at one of them might cause [[GoMadFromTheRevelation permanent damage to sanity]]. Of course, Mind Rape can also involve forced exposure to {{Mind Screw}}s.

Just as RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil, a character indulging in the Mind Rape of another character primarily for [[ForTheEvulz their own pleasure or enjoyment]] is a good sign they have crossed the MoralEventHorizon. Doubly so if the sexual symbolism is present. A WellIntentionedExtremist, AntiVillain or even the heroes may resort to Mind Rape [[IDidWhatIHadTodo if circumstances force them to]] ([[MyGodWhatHaveIDone and will probably regret it with all grief for the rest of their existence]]), but only the most disgusting lowest of the low shall take a sick enjoyment out of it.

Can be a possible cause of ImHavingSoulPains, and can function as a StupidityInducingAttack. Any character pulling this puts their MindOverManners. Heroes will try to protect themselves from these by entering HeroicSafeMode or trying out some BrainBleach.

->''"Somewhere on Beta Colony there is an institution. In one room of the institution, there is a man who spends his days and nights screaming at things that only he can see. Things we planted in his mind. They have to [[FateWorseThanDeath keep him in a straitjacket twenty-four hours a day]] or [[EyeScream he'll claw his own eyes out]] just to make it stop."''

Not to be confused with MoreThanMindControl (though Mind Rape ''can'' have some elements of this). Also not to be confused with Mind Screw, although sometimes a Mind Screw might leave the audience feeling this way.

Compare FateWorseThanDeath, {{Subtext}}, and VillainousBSOD. LogicBomb is what happens when computers (or [[StrawVulcan really rational people]]) experience this due to encountering and being confused with [=mindscrews=]. Contrast with the CareBearStare, which assaults the target with happy thoughts, like [[TastesLikeDiabetes rainbows and stuff]].
