* Many a {{shonen}} hero has managed to free himself from a villain's illusion by the use of self-inflicted pain (e.g., stabbing himself in the leg, breaking his own finger, etc...) like [[{{Naruto}} Sasuke Uchiha]] during the Chuunin Exam in his first fight against Orochimaru or [[TriGun Vash the Stampede]] while facing an opponent that could nullifying all of his senses for a few seconds.

The above example in ''Manga/AkameGaKill'' was caused by Tatsumi remembering that his mentor Bulat did this to overcome hypnosis.

* In ''Manga/AkameGaKiru'' when Esdeath and Tatsumi are teleported away to a distant island, Tatsumi, thinking it's an illusion asks Esdese to "hurt me". Esdese is overjoyed, because she thinks this means Tatsumi is a masochist and as an insane sadist with a VillainousCrush on Tatsumi, she thinks this makes them a better match. He quickly corrects her.
