* In the Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse, Mara Jade has this power. Apparently the Emperor taught this to her as he wanted agents that his {{Dragon}} Darth Vader can't read, [[GenreSavvy due to not trusting him fully]]. Of course that still didn't save him in the end.

* The Mind Shield, Psi-Screen and Kai-Screen disciplines in ''Literature/LoneWolf''. They are mostly geared toward protecting from psychic combat or mental damage (which, to be fair, are a favorite of many creatures of Magnamund). Mind control is harder to defend against, and some especially powerful telepaths may manage to slip in and read Lone Wolf's thoughts while he's busy shielding his psyche from trauma.
