* In the Franchise/{{Superman}} "ComicBook/EmperorJoker" story, where the Joker tricks Mister Mxyzptlk out of most of his 5th dimensional powers to reshape reality, [[spoiler:the Joker finally manages to kill Batman. He then revives Batman and kills him in a different way. The process is repeated over and over for several months until Superman works up enough willpower to challenge the Joker. When he asks Batman what he should do, Superman is horrified to learn that Batman is so broken, he asks Supes to kill Joker when he has a chance. When reality is properly restored, Mxyzptlk and the Spectre reveal to Superman that the experience of dying countless times has ruined Batman's mind and he literally can't live with that knowledge. Superman makes the hard choice to move the memories to The Joker's mind.]] In the epilogue, Batman mentions that he has slept well while Superman mentions having some trouble sleeping...
* This is the explanation for Dr. Light's VillainDecay in Franchise/TheDCU. As revealed in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'', while mindwipes were... tolerated (to protect secret identities), [[spoiler:a cabal in the League [[BrainwashingForTheGreaterGood decided to screw up Light's brain to change his personality]] to make him a near-HarmlessVillain. When Franchise/{{Batman}} saw the personality changing, ''he'' was mind wiped too... of the previous ten minutes. While Dr. Light eventually retakes [[TookALevelInBadass a level in badass]], Batman loses what little trust he had in the ComicBook/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}} and creates Brother Eye.]]

* 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.
