* ''SuperPaperMario'' has you fight recurring boss O'Chunks several times. In your penultimate fight with him, fellow QuirkyMinibossSquad member [[PsychoForHire Dimentio]] plants a leaf on his head that causes MindControl and strengthens him. Subverted in that you fight him once more later, when he's holding nothing back, and he's ''even stronger''.

* At the climax of ''Literature/{{Worm}}'', [[spoiler:the VillainProtagonist uses her newfound mind control powers to take control of essentially every major faction in the world- and several alternate realities- to get them to stop [[DividedWeFall fighting each other]] and perfectly coordinate the assault preventing Scion from wiping out humanity. This is later shown to have applied recursively; Taylor herself was being mostly controlled by the power-boosted Queen Administrator shard, which was controlling her in order to control everyone else.]]

* In ''TabletopGame/SentinelsOfTheMultiverse'', the special variant of the villain Spite, "Agent of Gloom" has been resurrected by the demon Gloomweaver. If this version of Spite reaches the conditions to make him flip to his alternate side, this represents Gloomweaver [[YouHaveFailedMe becoming dissatisfied with Spite's performance]] and taking over his corpse personally.

* In ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'', after you defeat [[spoiler:what seems to be the FinalBoss, [[BigBad Sovereign]] takes control of him via his cybernetic implants and [[OneWingedAngel turns him into a fast-moving, rocket-spamming, weapon-overheating husk]].]] This actually proves to be a mistake; [[spoiler:Sovereign invests so much focus on Shepard that, when Saren is crushed, the Reaper drops its shields from the backlash and becomes vulnerable to a barrage from the massed fleets of the Citadel, who promptly rip its main shell apart and put it down for good]].
** ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' has Harbinger, the Collector General, who commonly takes over a Collector drone in the middle of -- ''[[AC:[[InterruptingMeme Assuming direct control. ]]]]''\\
And because he can do this to any active drone, he can pull this trope off more than once in any given -- ''[[AC: [[RunningGag Direct intervention is necessary]]. ]]''\\
In fact, he does this so often as to reach DemonicSpiders stat -- ''[[AC: [[OverlyLongGag We fight as one. ]]]]''\\
Don't forget the parts where he'll take over a Collector that you're about to fini -- ''[[AC: [[OverusedRunningGag I am assuming control of this form! ]]]]''

** In ''Videogame/MassEffect3'''s multiplayer mode, Harbinger (or another Reaper) can seize control of ''any'' Collector unit, including Scions and Praetorians, turning what was a tough opponent into a sudden, horrible boss fight, often at the worst moment.

* ''Film/XMenFilmSeries'': Inverted with [[XMenFilmSeries/ProfessorCharlesFrancisXavier Professor Charles Xavier]] because he's a heroic character. He can hijack people's bodies, and unless they're another psychic or using a PsychicBlockDefense, none has been shown to be able to resist. When using [[AmplifierArtifact Cerebro]], he can hijack anyone across the globe as he sees fit.

* Inverted by Professor Xavier from ''Film/XMen'', as he's a heroic character. But he's still able to hijack people's minds as he sees fit, and using the AmplifierArtifact allows him to possess anyone across the globe.
