* To a lesser degree, in ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'', Miles once realizes that the mooks in power suits are working with the default settings and are therefore vulnerable to factory override codes. He only performs small changes like slowly raising the temperature thermostat on one suit, reversing the catheter flow on another, and causing some of their weapons to misfire, knowing that if they realize what he's doing, they'll just cut out their comms.

** Chrollo combines Order Stamp and Gallery Fake to create this ability. He uses Gallery Fake to create nonsentient clones of people, then uses Order Stamp to control them. Order Stamp's strict limitations[[note]]It can only be used on inanimate humanoids, has no effect on corpses, and can only follow simple commands[[/note]] provide the tradeoff that Chrollo can control dozens, if not hundreds of puppets at a time, enough to overwhelm even [[spoiler:Hisoka]].

* Those ''Half-Life'' headcrabs may well be based on the Brainsuckers from ''{{X-COM}}: Apocalypse'', which had similar effects and even look a lot like them. Brainsuckers were sometimes launched as weapons by the aliens and could be shot off an affected agent with a [[strike: little]] lot of luck.
