* In ''EarthX'', the Skull takes over the minds of everyone in America and most of the world's heroes. He's too inexperienced to do this on that vast a scale, but he has great fun with his superpowered army--[[PowerPerversionPotential especially pretty girls like MaydayParker]]. He is, however, [[HetIsEw squicked when Spiders Man and the Iron Maiden profess love for each other,]] and makes them stop.

* On TheSimpsons, the bully Nelson is fond of grabbing his victim (typically Milhouse), forcing him to slap himself, and taunting, "Hey, why are you hitting yourself?" This is, of course, a way of PlayingWithPuppets when you don't have any phlebotinum, and the idea came from bullies in [[TruthInTelevision real life]]. In one of the "Treehouse of Horror" specials, which parodies Literature/HarryPotter, he does use phlebotinum in the form of a magic wand, and he engages in the same mocking of Milhouse for "hitting himself."
