* ''The Sailor on the Seas of Fate'', an ''[[Literature/TheElricSaga Elric of Melnibone]]'' novel by Creator/MichaelMoorcock. Erekose, Elric, Corum and Hawkmoon mentally join together to form the "Four Who Are One" to fight Agak and Gagak.

* ''Literature/TheMachineriesOfEmpire'': "Compositing" technology lets humans join a temporary or semi-permanent hivemind remotely. Some people enjoy the sense of communion and purpose it brings, while others consider it a FateWorseThanDeath. In the [[GalacticSuperpower Hexarchate]], command of the Kel faction has long since been assumed by a nested composite under the control of its top-ranked General.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'', the dangerous aspects of the Mind Meld are addressed when a group of Vulcans who reject the usual philosophy of suppressing emotion prove to be rather less skilled at it. Apparently the reason Spock in ''TOS'' and the movies never had any lasting harm for either himself or the people he melded with is that he's just that good. T'Pol suffers from a form of brain damage called Pa'nar Syndrome after this flawed Mind Meld, but is later cured by T'Pau (who by the time of ''TOS'' would be the de facto leader of Vulcan) performing a correct Mind Meld.


* ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''. The Vulcan Mind Meld provides a useful plot device to communicate with aliens who are too alien for the universal translator. Examples include "Is There in Truth No Beauty," where Spock mind-melds with a [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien Medusan]] to save the Enterprise, "The Devil in the Dark" to find out why a rock monster is attacking humans, and "The Changeling" with the robotic probe NOMAD ([[FridgeLogic how that works is not explained]], but Spock has trouble breaking the connection).

* ''Fanfic/RocketshipVoyager''. Captain Janeway and Tech Lieutenant [=TuV'k=] use the Martian ''melding-of-minds'' to communicate with Nee'Lix [[UniversalTranslator as they lack a common language]]. By sharing memories they also create a shared sense of empathy, avoiding the instinctive UncannyValley [[FantasticRacism reaction that occurs]] when making FirstContact with an alien race. When the first humans landed on Mars, it created a psychic HatePlague that caused every Martian in the area to massacre them--demonstrating the danger of this trope, the creation of a [[HiveMind psychic gestalt]] can causing the individual to lose their sense of self in favor of the Overmind.
