* ''TabletopGame/Runequest'' supplement ''Trollpak'', "Book of Uz" part 2. The Aranea cult has a special type of Divine Intervention. The supplicant can link themselves to another person so that if the supplicant dies, the other will as well. This is an excellent way to persuade another person not to kill you.

* ''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.

They later do the same thing to Bazett to stop her from attacking them. While it convinces her to form a truce, Bazett is so tough that feeling Illya's injuries barely phases her.

* ''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.
