** Anime only, in the "New Captain Sh?suke Amagai arc" where Hanza Nukui uses his Bakk?t?, Saiga, to look into Ichigo's memories, and then tortures him with the memories of the death of his mother. Hanza makes it so she tries to choke Ichigo, making it so Ichigo can't harm her or fight back. He tells Ichigo he'll only be able to save himself if he can kill his mother. However, before Ichigo chokes to death, the pleasant memories with his mother comes up from deep within him. Ichigo then tells his mother how much everybody misses her. Before she vanishes, she smiles after Ichigo thanks her for protecting him that day.

* ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'': The trope name comes the FanNickname for Asuka's brutal mental torture inflicted by the Fifteenth Angel, Arael. It's so debilitating, she can no longer sync with her [=EVA=] unit, and eventually falls into a [[ConvenientComa catatonic]] [[HeroicBSOD depre]][[DespairEventHorizon ssion.]] Its effect and execution make it one of the cruelest examples ''ever'', as it forces her to relive her whole DarkAndTroubledPast which includes [[spoiler: her mother Kyouko going mad after test-piloting the EVA 02, being unable to recognize Asuka and shunning her to favor a CreepyDoll, Asuka herself hearing the people talk about her and her mother's lives, Kyouko [[OffingTheOffspring trying to strangle her]] in the manga, and Asuka finding Kyouko's hanging corpse (alongside the doll) in the very day when she was chosen as an EVA pilot]]. Most translations include Asuka screaming something like, "It's raping/defiling/violating/devouring my mind/soul!" (Or in the case of manga scanlations, [[http://www.mangareader.net/687-33647-23/neon-genesis-evangelion/chapter-60.html sobbing and whispering "I've been violated!"]]). The fact that the mind rape ray also [[SoundtrackDissonance plays the wildly inappropriate Hallelujah chorus]] either [[{{Narm}} defuses the scene completely]] or [[NightmareFuel makes it much, much worse]]. In fact, the sheer level of it all is so great, that the lines on the psychograph measuring her mental state drop to zero, then turns into an impossible mass of squiggles that [[FreezeFrameBonus if you pause at certain moments, show what appear to be really creepy doodles.]]

** What C.C. does to Suzaku to stop him from attacking Lelouch would also qualify; [[spoiler:she shows him memories of his dead father, ex-Prime Minister Genbu Kururugi, who Suzaku himself killed as a young boy]]. It's so bad that Suzaku falls into a catatonic state and is traumatised for a while afterward. Partially excusable in that C.C. admits she had absolutely ''no'' idea what she made Suzaku see; they even mention at the end of the episode that they had to wait until the Lancelot ran out of power to pull a trembling Suzaku out of the cockpit because he freaked out and started shooting everything. Several episodes later, as mentioned above, Mao also brings the issue up, manipulating Suzaku in a similar way he did Shirley, by reading his mind and mocking what he did to [[spoiler: his father]] as well as his guilt over it.

** And the second season reveals that [[spoiler:during the TimeSkip, the Emperor used ''his'' own Geass to give Lelouch FakeMemories]]. Not a traditional MindRape, but the scene gets almost uncomfortably close to an actual rape, with [[spoiler:Suzaku holding Lelouch down and Lelouch begging for him to stop]].

** If Lelouch uses his Geass to order someone with strong enough willpower to do something utterly abhorrent to them, a MindRape-like effect will ensue when the will of the victim tries to fight off the Geass. It happened twice in the series... and aptly enough, [[spoiler:both of them were his sisters]]. He causes mind rapes many more times than that by forcing people to do things against their will often leaving them an emotional wreck afterward.

* In ''Anime/InuYasha'', about one third of the way through the plot, Naraku traps the gang in a field of mist and some sort of root-like plant which traps them and forces them to see hallucinations of which they each fear the most: Miroku's hallucination is his Wind Tunnel breaking its constraints and swallowing him slowly from the hand up; Sango hallucinates about Kohaku killing everybody; Shippo hallucinates that he's completely alone and everyone else in the group has disappeared (leaving only their clothes behind); and Inuyasha hallucinates about Kikyo and him dying together. He's the only one to snap out of it on his own, because he (unsurprisingly) remembers that he needs to protect Kagome.

* The ''Manga/BungouStrayDogs'' has an ability user whose ability is this entire trope. Anyone who harms him become the receiver for his curse, and when he mutilates the doll he carries around with him, they begun to hallucinate causing them to attack anyone near them, friend or foe.

* In PandoraHearts, [[spoiler:[[EvilAllAlong Jack Vessalius]]]] does this extremely effectively to [[spoiler:Oz]] by showing [[spoiler:him]] immensely traumatizing memories from [[spoiler:his]] forgotten past, including [[spoiler:the memories of being forced to kill countless innocent people as the B-rabbit despite not wanting to. Jack finishes off by telling Oz, "You've never really had anything to call your own, anyway. Don't forget that..."]]

** ZERO System's effects on the pilot seem to be twofold in the realm of Mind Raping. The first is the manner in which the data exported by the ZERO System's tactical analysis is interpreted by the brain. In most recorded cases of use, the pilot has experienced vivid hallucinations which also cause a time dilation effect on the pilot's perception. (The hallucinations are experienced as flashes over a short period of time.) The second is the train of the thought by the pilot. Stray thoughts cause the computer to adjust its tactical analysis accordingly and feed relevant information back to the pilot, EVEN if it's directed in a manner the System isn't meant to address. For example, Heero frequently states that his enemies are the people who mean him harm. In light of that the System tells him to kill the Gundam scientists (likely to prevent further MS development) and later to kill Zechs, as the only person in possession of a comparable Mobile Suit.

** In ''Anime/YuGiOhZexal'' Tron does this to Droite, forcibly stealing her memories of Kaito (whom she's secretly in love with) and leaving her psychologically scarred, sobbing in Yuma's arms. To make this worse, he laughs at her like a sadist after doing it.

* In ''{{Noein}}'', [[spoiler: when Noein has Haruka in his clutches he shows her a BadFuture of her friends being [[BreakTheCutie broken]] in various ways as self-justification for his own nihilism]], made all the worse because the scene is ''dripping'' with [[NoYay sexual tension between him and Haruka]], and because [[spoiler: he is an evil version of Yuu, Haruka's own sweetheart]].

** ''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeed Gundam Seed]]'': A more minor case, some would say Rau Le Crueset's final words had this effect on Kira Yamato, as in [[MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny the sequel]] we first see Kira as mostly quiet man, always deep in his thoughts, staring outwards at the world, possibly depressed.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiNoNakuKoroNi''; most of the main cast are batshit ''insane'', and poor Keiichi gets mind raped pretty much every arc. [[spoiler:The victims of Hinamizawa Syndrome are seeing horrifying hallucinations of their friends acting like demonic entities or something similar disturbing to make them AxCrazy Psychos. Hinamizawa Syndrome is a mind raping disease.]]
