*** To clarify, this is well after [[spoiler: Slade's apparent demise,]] but Robin is still convinced he's around. Later, Robin sees him and tries to fight him, but not only does he not land a hit, nobody else can see [[spoiler: Slade. Slade]] then kicks his ass so soundly that it gets to the point where {{Determinator}} ''Robin'' of all people is desperately crawling away, pleading for him to stop--and every bit of it was all in his head. [[spoiler: Slade's]] speech near the end of the episode is downright disturbing with some of the implications that it gives.

* ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'' reveals during the episode "Holly, Jolly Secrets" that a man named Simon Petrikov was mind raped over the course of several hundred years, by a [[ArtifactOfDoom cursed artifact]]. He fights it, but over time, he loses all his sanity, eventually becoming [[spoiler: The Ice King.]]
* Played for laughs on ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb.'' When the super computer the kids built scans the entire Tri-State Area, Norm the robot covers his ears and says, "Get out of my mind!"

* The Shaman in ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'' does this to both Lance and Ilana. Lance with memories of his childhood and his [[spoiler: DisappearedDad]], Ilana with her fear of Galaluna's fate, believing that she has "abandoned" her people.

* In one episode of ''{{Transformers}}'', a Quintesson placed a Junkion in a bare cell to see how long it would take someone accustomed to the most cluttered environment in the galaxy to break down when deprived of stimulation. Almost immediately, the Junkion starts tearing at the walls and ripping up the floor. Disappointed at how quickly his subject collapsed, the scientist turns off the monitor. Later, the trope is subverted when the scientist checks back to see if anything has changed, and sees the Junkion, perfectly relaxed, laying back on an improvised couch. The Junkion hadn't suffered a breakdown; he'd just been redecorating.
* In Season 2 of ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' Obi-wan, Anakin, and Mace Windu influence [[spoiler:Cad Bane's]] mind in a very strong and disturbing version of the Jedi Mind Trick. And the victim does reveal the information not because the trick worked, but because [[DesignatedHero he didn't want them to try again.]] And seeing as how he was struggling and trying so hard to resist [[FridgeHorror it was definitely not a pleasant experience]]
** Season 3 also had [[MadeOfEvil the]] [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Son]] show Anakin a vision of his future as he kills his wife, turns against the Jedi, and blows up the planet of Alderaan. He's so horrified that it breaks him, making him completely obedient to the Son.
* Played for laughs in the ''WesternAnimation/{{SpongeBob SquarePants}}'' episode 'Big Pink Loser', Patrick decides that the easiest way to win an award for something is to copy everything that Spongebob does. At one point Spongebob began behaving very randomly, but Patrick was able to copy him. Cue Spongebob thinking "At least I'm safe inside my mind." and a horrified look on Spongebob's face when we hear Patrick's thoughts, apparently pushed into Spongebob's mind... "At least I'm safe inside my mind..."

* In one Near the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' episode of ''{{Transformers}}'', a Quintesson placed a Junkion in a bare cell to see how long it would take someone accustomed to "The Castle", Nicole enters the most cluttered environment in house, which has been overtaken by local citizens, and orders all of the galaxy crashers to break down when deprived of stimulation. Almost immediately, clean the Junkion starts tearing mess they made. When Harold scoffs at the walls her threat, Nicole gives him a DeathGlare, where what he sees in her eyes are horrific apparitions, reducing him to tears as he takes a broom and ripping up sweeps the floor. Disappointed at how quickly his subject collapsed, the scientist turns off the monitor. Later, the trope is subverted when the scientist checks back to see if anything has changed, and sees the Junkion, perfectly relaxed, laying back on an improvised couch.

* What Megatron in ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'' did to [[spoiler: an amnesic Optimus/Orion]] could be considered this, given the way Megatron took advantage of the latter. Later after [[spoiler: Optimus regained his memories but doesn't remember his time spent with Megatron]], Megatron uses this to taunt him. The look on [[spoiler: Optimus's]] face as he realized what he had done is uncomfortable to watch.
** This isn't even mentioning the Cortical Psychic Patch. Being a Decepticon technology, it's usually used to pry information out of captives.



** Amon [[spoiler: stripping Tahno of his bending]] also qualifies. Especially with the way the scene is shot, the way Amon touches him, and his reaction the next episode.

** [[TransformersTheMovie And looking back to 1986]], this is what Unicron has to do to Galvatron to enforce his loyalty, because Galvatron is Megatron wearing a new body and name, and Megatron is mentally incapable of being second banana.

*** What? You mean when Megatron traps Starscream in a darkened room, then repeatedly commands his struggling and protesting victim to "say his name" while simultaneously stabbing him with his [[FreudWasRight massive sword?]] What could possibly be suspect about that?

* ''WesternAnimation/{{X-Men}}'': You wouldn't expect this from him considering his MindOverManners approach, but Xavier applied some harsh enlightenment to {{Magneto}} about his violent ways by having him relive his memories of the Holocaust (or the generic war he lived through; it was a children's cartoon so they couldn't use the H-word). It may have had a point in teaching him that violence is wrong, as he spent the rest of the series reforming from his villainous ways but it is still forcing someone to relive his darkest memories.

* ''WesternAnimation/FantasticFour'': ComicBook/{{Galactus}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx8ob0BAkOs receives an epic Mind Rape courtesy of a relatively obscure (at the time) Marvel character.]] The Big G, weakened after Terrax betrayed and nearly killed him, has to consume Earth if he hopes to live and the ''Comicbook/FantasticFour'' and ''TheMightyThor'' are unable to stop him. Cue ''Comicbook/GhostRider'' to [[DeusExMachina appear out of nowhere]], call Galactus out and deliver his Penance Stare, forcing Galactus to [[IronicHell experience all the agony, suffering and terror of every single being that died when he snuffed out their planets]] (it was said to be in the billions of billions). For the first time in his impossibly long history, ''[[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu it has become possible to Mind Rape a near-omnipotent]] EldritchAbomination''. Reed chooses to have Thor rescue Galactus from the brink of death and its implied that, from then on, he will stick to feeding on uninhabited planets. Good choice, Big G.

** A straighter and more serious example comes from "Phineas And Ferb Get Busted" as a ShoutOut to ''[[Film/AClockworkOrange A Clockwork Orange]]''.

* ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'': When Rick's ship is forbidden from using actual violence, it resorts to its idea of psychological warfare. In the case we witness, it involves finding out the captain of the squad currently aiming weapons at them had a son who drowned years ago, whipping up a clone of the captain's dead son to lower his guard, have the clone tell him to please step away from the ship, then ''melt before his eyes'' as the captain looks on, unable to stop his son from leaving him again. It's naturally horrendously effective, reducing the captain to a whimpering mess hugging the melted remains, and horrifying the rest of the squad enough for them to dump their weapons.
