* On at least two separate occasions on ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer,'' Buffy is completely oblivious to the fact that she is under a spell. In both cases, she is fully aware that a spell is in effect on the people around her, but she's convinced that she has "Slayer Immunity" protecting her from it. The results are [[CrowningMomentOfFunny pretty hilarious.]]

* Happens to the ''player'' in one side mission in ''AssassinsCreedSyndicate''. Evie is investigating a series of incidents where apparently law-abiding people suddenly committed crimes claiming no memory of what happened, and eventually tracks down a mesmerist who is hypnotizing ordinary people to steal and bring him the loot. Evie is dismissive that he has such skill, and the player probably thinks that of course the badass assassin they're currently controlling will easily take care of this crimin-...why did the screen just fade to black, and when it comes back, why is Evie sitting in a police cell with utterly no idea why she's there, what she was previously doing, or that she was investigating anything at all?

** This was [[RecycledScript recycled]] from an episode of ''Series/TheDickVanDykeShow'', where the genuinely un-hypnotizable Buddy briefly fakes being hypnotized while Rob, in the other room, accidentally goes under for real.

* The ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series has many characters, of various levels of intelligence and willpower, who believe they will be safe from the effects of [[EldritchAbomination Reaper]] [[MindRape Indoctrination]]. Often, they take some kind of precaution against it, and think that this precaution will stop them succumbing. By the end of the series [[spoiler: absolutely nobody has has been able to resist the effect once they are exposed to it, and the most that any indoctrinated character can manage is to commit suicide, and even that requires an extremely strong will and a lot of encouragement from MagneticHero Shepard to make them realise they've succumbed and break free for just a short while.]]

** In the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Spirit Folk", the holodeck is malfunctioning ([[HolodeckMalfunction again]]) and the characters in the holonovel start noticing things outside the constraints of the program. They try to hypnotise the Doctor to get answers, which the Doctor points out won't work on [[ProjectedMan him]] and it doesn't, until the characters remove his mobile emitter (believing it to be a magic talisman) which automatically transfers him to the same malfunctioning hologrid as they are on and he is immediately hypnotised.

* In the [[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse Mickey Mouse]] story "The Beast Within", as Mickey scoffs that it's impossible to hypnotize an uncooperative person, the hypnotist in question hypnotizes him in mid-sentence. When Mickey comes to, he finishes the sentence he was saying.

incorrect. Actually something of a deconstruction, as the repeated loss of control proves very damaging to him.
