* In ''Film/DarkShadows'', Dr. Julia Hoffman proposes a hypnotism session to get to the heart of whatever issues Barnabas Collins suffers from. Barnabas expresses doubts that it's possible to hypnotize him, but is cut off mid-sentence after the medallion is dangled in front of him for a few seconds.

Distantly related to TemptingFate. See also {{Unpaused}}. A form of {{Irony}}. This is very much TruthInTelevision - trance is a state of consciousness that people enter and leave many times a day, so someone can be hypnotized and not recognize it, largely because the memory blackout and loss of free will are complete myth. Though if they know someone is trying to hypnotize them it won't work if they don't want it, all they need to do is not focus on whatever the hypnotist wants them to focus on.

[[folder: Real Life ]] * In her 11/23/14 Parade Magazine column answering a reader's question about hypnotism, Marilyn vos Savant states "People who can be hypnotized - not everyone can be hypnotized, among them yours truly - ...." Unknown if she's mearly bragging or if she did indeed once give someone a fair shot at putting her under. ** Probably not bragging, but just stating a coincidence, as hypnotizability has no correlation with intelligence, and relates more to one's imagination and ability to get lost in a fantasy. Since Marilyn is more of a linear and practical thinker and not very imaginative (with all her intelligence, she has never innovated any field), she is probably less hypnotizable than more imaginative and less practical individuals of any intelligence level, including her own.

* 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.]]

* In a ''CourageTheCowardlyDog'' episode, Courage attempts to use past-life regression hypnosis on Muriel and Eustace [[ItMakesSenseInContext in order to get rid of a mummy that is coming to kill them]]. Eustace says that he can't be hypnotized, right before Courage ends up turning him into a monkey. * In ''TheFairlyOddParents'' episode "Crocker Shocker", when Crocker's therapist decided to hypnotize him, Crocker fell asleep in the middle of the bragging. * ''TheGarfieldShow'': Garfield also fell asleep during his bragging. Jon [[SarcasmMode claimed Garfield falling asleep was news to him]]. * In a ''USAcres'' segment of ''GarfieldAndFriends'', Orson attempts to hypnotize Wade into being extremely brave. Wade claims he's too smart to be hypnotized, but goes under in the middle of his claim, and continues it after he wakes up, even though it's succeeded.
