* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': The mecha pilots use neural links to control their Eva units. A meter shows the "synchronization ratio" which depends on several factors including plug depth (increases synch but puts the pilot under more strain as well as risking mental contamination by the Eva) and the pilot's psychological state (being depressed lowers the synch ratio). Low synchronization means you can't pilot the mech at all (it won't even move under 20%), and higher synchronization ratios give the pilot better and better control. It's made clear that higher synchronization ratios are dangerous in various ways, but it's not completely explained. Examples:

* The 1970's DCComics character ''Kobra'' had this problem; he and his twin brother suffered the injuries the other one got, so his brother was an enemy he could not kill. Kobra eventually got around this with some AppliedPhlebotinum to break the psychic link.

* ''Manga/FateKaleidLinerPrismaIllya'': When "Chloe" (Kuro Illya) first joins the cast and expresses a desire to kill Illya, Rin and Luvia get around this by carving a magic rune onto Chloe that causes a one-way version of this between her and Illya: whatever pain Illya feels, Chloe will feel too, and if Illya dies, so too will Chloe. This is enough to prevent Chloe from attacking Illya until she undergoes a full HeelFaceTurn, though Chloe keeps the rune for a long time afterward out of sentimentality.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' fanfic ''Fanfic/TheUltimateEvil'', it would seem like that two people who are [[WonderTwinPowers Others]] to each other can feel each other's pain in extremely painful situations. Most often it happens between Shendu and Valerie, like when Shendu is rendered unconscious for being in touch with the [[KryptoniteFactor Pan'Ku Box]] and Valerie is blasted in the face with [[PlayingWithFire the Dragon Talisman]].
