* Mind rape is essentially what the Dark Man of ''ComicBook/{{Fables}}'' does to his victims. He is the darkness and evil of the world, the boogeyman, the terror in the closet and under the bed. He terrifies his victims, then consumes and uses their own fears to get behind the victim's defenses to destroy them.
** In ''Fables: Rose Red'', he's shown coming up silently and invisibly behind two NYPD officers. His influence causes the younger to confess to the elder that he's been sleeping with Kathy. (Apparently a wife/girlfriend.) The elder officer ''shoots'' the younger, then suicides. Part of the point being so the Dark Man can claim their teeth.
** Later in the same book, his summoned witherlings -a type of zombie- aren't building fast enough for the Dark Man's liking. He invokes fears in their minds: one, the horror of drowning while inches below the surface; the other, the image of his lady leaving him. The Dark Man speaks, describing in detail what he's forcing into the man's mind; the woman of this once-man's dreams, with another, in the most carnal way possible. The witherling chooses to jump off the building. And yet, if the Dark Man has any of the man's teeth left, he can summon him again.

** Actually, ''ComicBook/XMen'' is full of examples of MindRape, both by villains ''and heroes'' alike, from Professor X formatting {{Magneto}}'s brain, through Cassandra Nova forcing Beak to beat Beast an inch away from death with a baseball bat and mindraping Kitty, to Dark Phoenix punishing Mastermind's hunger for power by granting him omniscience.

** Molly's parents were evil mutant telepaths who absolutely ''loved'' raping people's minds. It's implied that they may have used their powers on Molly herself on several occasions.
** In Creator/JossWhedon's run, the kids meet the time-traveling parents of Gertrude Yorkes, [[spoiler:who had died some time earlier]]. The kids are then faced with a problem: The elder Yorkeses can not be allowed to return to the future with the knowledge they have, because that could change said future (which, having already happened, was the past for the main characters), but just mind wiping is considered too nice considering their actions ([[ItOnlyWorksOnce and they had already used a mind wiping spell]]). Nico, however, [[TakeAThirdOption realizes that she has options]] and casts the spell "The Show Must Go On." The Yorks know everything that will happen to them, up to and including [[spoiler:their own death and the death of their daughter after them]], but are incapable of doing anything to alter the flow of events. Nico is a very clear example of why you should ''always'' BewareTheNiceOnes.

* In ''DarkEmpire'', Luke Skywalker joins the Emperor. It was the better option of a SadisticChoice, and he planned to subvert the cause from within. Things [[BecomingTheMask didn't work out as planned]], but when Leia's presence reminded him what he'd been trying to do, he tried to kill the Emperor. The Emperor survived, but didn't kill Luke, who could still be useful.

* GailSimone created a villain named Mortis in her last run on ''BirdsOfPrey'' who basically had this as her superpower. The moment she gets in physical contact with another person, she forces them to relive every bad decision and horrible thing they've ever done in their lives, and most of her victims end up killing themselves just to make it stop. She subjects BlackCanary to this, forcing the heroine to first endure visions of her dead parents, then visions of Green Arrow, Roy Harper, and her adoptive daughter Sin for collectively abandoning them when they really needed her. However, Canary is able to break out of this when Mortis tells her that her friends have failed her, as Canary's belief in her teammates is unwavering.
