* [[spoiler: The Imperial Agent player character]] in ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic'' is subjected to "Castellan restraints", a form of mind control that is applied well ahead of time, only kicking in when they hear a specific code word. [[spoiler: Yours is "onomatophobia", since you asked.]] When the code is used, the victim is compelled to carry out any commands given to the best of their ability. [[spoiler: You are eventually able to recover by subjecting yourself to the Castellan process ''again'', only this time with a code word of your own choosing; you then [[LogicBomb order yourself to ignore the previous trigger]].]]
** In ''Knights Of The Eternal Throne''; [[spoiler: Vaylin]] has a PowerLimiter that is activated by the key phrase: "Kneel Before the Dragon of Zakuul!". [[spoiler:She eventually gets it removed, though it returns in the FinalBoss where you are able to use it against Valkorion due to the battle [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind taking place in your mind]].]]

** Florence had several extra phrases programmed in as debug features. The one we see onscreen is that if she's given a direct order to identify a banana, she'll claim it's "[[Series/RedDwarf a small off-duty Czechoslovakian traffic warden]]". She'll also do... ''something'' if ordered to identify a female aardvark, but [[NoodleIncident all we know is that Henri Mer doesn't want to be in the same room if it happens]].

Indeed, BigBad Enrico Pucci utters this sequence of words to Green Baby, which then fuses with his Stand Whitesnake to form C-Moon.]]

* ''Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale'' does an {{exaggerated|Trope}} version. In [[Recap/WelcomeToNightValeEp61BrinyDepths Episode 61]], a [[NebulousEvilOrganization "vague yet menacing government agency"]] manipulates Cecil into saying "Briny Depths" over [[DoNotAdjustYourSet all possible radio frequencies]]. Doing so initiates a large commotion outside of the studio, and when Cecil returns from his usual weather report break, he learns that the phrase "Briny Depths" was a code word for the government's [[DeepCoverAgent secret agents]] to enact their evil plans...or more specifically, for ''all'' of the agents to enact ''every evil plan'' they had ever learned. Said government agents include every citizen of Night Vale.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'': In ''Broly Abridged'', rather than seeing Goku being what sets him off like in the original movie, Broly's wrath is unleashed by him hearing the name "Kakarot" (Goku's Saiyan name): His father Paragus mentions that he destroyed South Galaxy after Paragus said it, and Vegeta saying it repeatedly is what triggers Broly's transformation into the Legendary Super Saiyan.
