* Yoruka in ''LightNovel/UndefeatedBahamutChronicle'' has a specific version: she can control [[MiniMecha Drag-Rides]] that are being worn by a person, but not empty Drag-Rides or people's actual bodies. This has several limitations: she must touch a Drag-Ride first, she can only control the part she touched, and the duration she can control them is proportional to the duration of the touch. She does have an additional weapon consisting of steel strings that she can set out like a spider's web, and can control any Drag-Rides that touch the strings as if she had touched them directly. She can also use this on herself, one application of which is [[spoiler:activating her Drag-Ride's SuperMode]].

* ''Series/AshVsEvilDead'': Ash's evil demonic offspring decapitates a woman, then crawls up her... nether regions, and proceeds to use the hollowed out corpse as if it were a piece of powered armor. Ash takes a hell of a beating at first, before he realizes that the corpse [[SealedInsideAPersonShapedCan makes for a pretty handy prison]].

* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "Plato's Stepchildren", when the Platonians used telekinesis to control the Enterprise landing party's bodies (but not their minds). Their control was so great that they could make them speak. And in Spock's case, laugh or cry. They were also very keen on the PowerPerversionPotential aspect of this particular trick.
* In the ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' episode "Skin of Evil," [[MonsteroftheWeek Armus]] uses what is apparently telekinesis to control Data's body. Since he's an android, Data is much calmer about it than most victims of this trope.
* ''Series/StarTrekVoyager''. The episode "Cathexis" has an alien moving from person to person on Voyager forcing them to do things -- those concerned have no memory of the event afterwards. [[spoiler:Inverts the usual trope in that the puppeteer is actually the good guy, a member of the crew who's been forced from his body and is now roaming the ship as an EnergyBeing, trying to stop them from going into an alien trap.]]

* ''Series/{{Heroes}}'' just got into the game with a particular creepy example in Eric Doyle who also happens to be an actual puppeteer.
** Then Sylar does it to Claire using telekinesis, and shows us all how it's ''really'' done.
*** I had assumed that Sylar had stolen Doyle's ability in the same way he stole [[spoiler: the shapeshifter's ability,]] because the sound effects were similar to when Doyle uses his "puppet master" thing. [[spoiler: This turns out not to be the case, as the puppeteer shows up hale and whole, about midway (heh) through season 4.]]

* In ''Series/{{Angel}}'''s "Smile Time", the showrunner of a kids puppet TV show is turned by demon puppets into a a living people puppet. Complete with the hole in the back. When not controlled by one of the demons, he's barely capable of speaking.

* In an episode of ''Series/LazyTown'', Robbie gets his hands on a remote control that can control ''anyone''. He then proceeds to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSBpx3hQByI have some fun with Sportacus]]. No, not like ''that''!

* Happens to Lister in the ''Series/RedDwarf'' episode "Demons & Angels". He still has the power of speech, resulting in memorable lines such as: "Look out - I'm gonna kill ya!"

* ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' has the Pyxis Zodiarts, based on the Pyxis constellation, or the compass. In addition to being able to find things with special appendages on his arms, he can use those same appendages to control people, forcing them to move wherever he wants them to. Albeit with a very stiff, obviously unnatural gait.

* The titular ''Film/{{Nanny McPhee}}'s'' first spell does this to the children, forcing them to ''continue'' misbehaving against their will, putting their youngest sibling in very immediate danger, and forces them all to say "Please, Nanny [=McPhee=]" before she breaks the spell. This alone is enough to scare all the children except for Simon into listening to her.

** In [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E3CastleManeia Castle Mane-ia]] Twilight Sparkle, presumably using the same tactic she did in Green Isn't Your Color, seizes up the bodies of her friends to stop them from running around and freaking out. Why she doesn't use this tactic against actual ''enemies'' is [[ForgotAboutHisPowers anyone's guess...]]
