* ''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.

** One of the antagonists, Andrew Ryan, uses it to [[PlayingWithPuppets chilling effect]] in one cutscene. After you make it past his final defences he reveals [[spoiler:that Fontaine has been controlling your actions all along. He demonstrates by controlling you like a dog, telling you to sit, stand, so on. Then, he hands you his golf club and commands you to kill him, wanting to 'choose' the terms of his own death rather than 'obey' Fontaine. [[FridgeLogic Why he didn't just command you to run away or kill yourself is another matter...]]]]
*** Because when he found out you were a [[spoiler:hypnotically controlled assassin]], he also learned [[spoiler:you were his son. He says as much as "Now that I know who you are, I can't kill you."]] He was hoping he could [[spoiler:convince you to break your programming, rather than beating your own father to death with a putter.]]

* ''Literature/{{Mindwarp}}'' has a character, a time-traveler named Toni, whose powers first trigger when trying on a dress, looking at herself in a changing room mirror. She travels back in time eight years for a little while, then returns to the present outside the store, and gets busted for shoplifting. Later at home, she tries the dress on again and goes back in time eight years to when she was five and her mother was still alive. After speaking together, the mom calls in five-year-old Toni and implants a hypnotic command to come back to this day when seeing 13-year-old Toni in that dress. Later, she uses her mugshot from her shoplifting arrest to escape a jam, and rearm in the mall.
