For showing compassion, Granny would condemn me to a thousand mindyears of all-pain.
Big Barda, Gotham City Garage

The touch of the King comes from all directions simultaneously. He is outside and inside and somewhere else. Suddenly she can't remember the name of her husband or the sound of the voices of her daughters. All she can remember is the time when she was twelve and she let the man in the swingpark touch her. He gave her ten shillings and she bought chocolate and was sick. Shame. Disgust. Humiliation. The king is talking to her, touching her that way.

Barry: This is merely the prelude — to this... the seizing of your mind!
Supergirl: My head... suddenly feels so hot... throbbing...!
Barry: That is me, Supergirl. Your mind may differ from normal humans, but it is still vulnerable to attack from within — an attack most painful!
Supergirl: Gnngh! N-no! Get... out of... my head...!
Barry: Do not be ridiculous, child! You are mine now! It ill serves me to relinquish my control... before you are dead!
Supergirl: S-stop... it...
Barry: I think not. Please... Do not resist. It only makes the process that much more painful — and prolongs the agony!

You scream all the time, but it's the inside kind. You scream and scream, but you can only hear it when you're asleep. Otherwise, it's quite lovely.

It was as if an alien hand had reached right inside where no hand had a right to be, and wrenched at something deep and precious. She felt faint, sick, dizzy, disgusted, limp with shock. ... It wasn't allowed. Not supposed to touch. Wrong...
— Lyra's reaction when a stranger grabs her dæmon, The Golden Compass

[Glaurung] constrained her to gaze into his eyes, and he laid a spell of utter darkness and forgetfulness upon her, so that she could remember nothing that had ever befallen her, nor her own name, nor the name of any other thing; and for many days she could neither hear, nor see, nor stir by her own will.

AM said it with the sliding cold horror of a razor blade slicing my eyeball. AM said it with the bubbling thickness of my lungs filling with phlegm, drowning me from within. AM said it with the shriek of babies being ground beneath blue-hot rollers. AM said it with the taste of maggoty pork. AM touched me in every way I had ever been touched, and devised new ways, at his leisure, there inside my mind.

Somewhere on Beta Colony there is an institution. In one room of the institution, there is a man who spends his days and nights screaming at things that only he can see.

Roose Bolton: What did you do to him?
Ramsay Snow: I trained him. He was a slow learner, but he learned.

You don't know, Robert, you don't know. They took everything I was. They used me to kill and to destroy, and I couldn't stop them! I should have been able to stop them! I tried. I tried so hard. But I wasn't strong enough! I wasn't good enough! I should have been able to stop them.

The Doctor: (panting) It's burning me up, I can't control it! If you don't get rid of it, I could kill you! (through gritted teeth) I could kill you all... (screams in agony — whimpers) I'm scared... I'm so scared...
Martha: Just... Stay calm! You saved me, now I return the favor. Just believe in me.
The Doctor: IT'S BURNING, KILL ME! Then it won't happen! (pained gasping)
Martha: That's enough! I've got you! [...] You ready?
The Doctor: No!

Distrust that brews every single time that I think of you
Rape my mind to make me blind
Thought I would forget?

How much deception can you take
How many lies will you create
How much longer till you break
Your mind's about to fall

To cut you open with a knife and find your sacred heart

The cruelest tortures leave no mark upon the flesh

An open mind is like a fortress with its gate unbarred and unguarded.
— Imperial Proverb, Warhammer 40,000

If awareness yields to Awakening, the initiate finds himself impaled on the icy horns - or more appropriately, phallus - of Enlightenment. For one who pursues the darkest Mysteries, this moment is a rape of the soul. Every fear, every doubt, every screaming terror the initiate has ever felt rips through him like a gutter's hook. At this moment, he stands at the edge of Hell, and gets a taste of it. The experience isn't pleasant. [...] It may be a prelude to a wondrous career, but the Cold Thrust is always torturous. It literally scars the soul, tears it open on a spiritual level. No matter what the diabolist does, this moment will haunt him like no other. Some initiates snap forever at this point and become demented Marauds. Some even die from the shock. Those who endure with their wits intact become the most dangerous kind of mage: those who have gone to hell and returned.

The merger isn't a wholesome symbiosis or a sharing of souls. It is more akin to a spiritual violation [...] The Bane forces the human to see everything - friends, family, music, at, anything the human once loved - in its own terms. That means friends and family are just sacks of meat waiting to be used for whatever purpose the Bane sees fit. Music and art are distractions, mind-numbing and maddening enigmas that the Bane doesn't have any way at all to appreciate. Love is not compatible with the Bane's outlook - it is, in fact, the Bane's very antithesis.
Adding to the horror, the victim keeps his own perceptions and thoughts during all of this. They may be tainted or colored by the Bane's to be sure, but the human's mindset is still nowhere near as simplistic as the Bane's. That means that a father looking at his son sees the child not only through his own eyes but also through the Bane's - and the Bane is part of him, at his most basic level. Is it any wonder that most fomori lose their sanity?

Kokonoe: So, the mask creeper was bad-touching your brain-meats, huh?
Makoto: Yeah, that's right. He was pulling out memory after memory. Especially all the bad ones I'd hidden away.

Come to me...
Bring your sword, bring your wife,
bring adoration, bring me your life.
You are mine, fall in line,
only in death will you wake.
Cattle and Swine, I will dine
on your mind, honey and cake.
never to cease, never to end,
never to question, always to bend.
Come to me...
