** Koushiro [Izzy] experiences this and normal MindControl through Vademon. The digimon convinces Izzy that he is greedy and useless in his pursuit for knowledge and should give up his curiosity. Izzy crumbles under the insults combined with being trapped in Vademons pocket dimension and gives up his most defining trait. It takes a lot of talking of Tentomon (to the point where it devolves back to Pabumon) to get him back out of it.

* In TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}'s ''Curse of the Crimson Throne'', about halfway through the campaign it is revealed that [[spoiler: Queen Ileosa]] has been possessed by the spirit of an ancient dragon named Kazavon. [[spoiler: Except she really hasn't. While many of the other characters think this is the case, in truth Kazavon has very little control over her, and simply encouraged her to go through with the plans that she'd always wanted to execute, but didn't have the power or confidence to go through with. Kazavon doesn't really mind, [[PsychoForHire so long as he can cause misery and destruction]].]]

* ''Literature/TheCavesOfSteel'': During his investigation of a murder, Detective Elijah Baley at one point has a partner of the victim discuss a project the victim was working on: encouraging Earth humanity to begin colonizing other worlds again. Elijah continues to muse about both the colonization project and the intrinsic weaknesses of the MegaCity [[CityPlanet Planet]] Earth has become throughout the rest of the book. [[spoiler: Elijah's partner. R(obot) Daneel Olivaw, eventually reveals that the murder victim's partner had surreptitiously given him a dose of a drug that was intended to brainwash him into a fanatical supporter of the project. The drug failed to work because of Elijah's skeptical nature, but it did encourage him to think about the argument enough to become a willing supporter by the end of the novel.]]
