* 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.
