* In the anime ''Anime/OutlawStar'', there was a bizarre alien cactus that used its powers to influence human brains to... sell ice cream. This was actually a test to see how effective its powers actually were before it tried its hand at galactic dominion. However, when it encountered someone that its powers could not control, it ended up as squished cactus.

* The serpent-bearded Byatis of the ''CthulhuMythos'' uses hypnosis to attract human prey. And yes, it's toad shaped. However, despite being a Great Old One (thus very, very big), it does get [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu punched out]] [[spoiler: when a human defeats it by setting it on fire.]]

* ''VideoGame/StarControlII'' features the Dnyarri, a race of toadlike beings that can utterly dominate the minds of others and may be the inspiration behind the TropeNamer. [[spoiler:After a slave revolt millenia ago, the entire race was genetically altered into nonsentient pets. When just one is accidentally reverted to full power, it shows horrifying power levels, and immediately takes control of an interstellar empire all by itself.]]
