The effects include IdentityAmnesia and intrusive thoughts of her past life.
-->Flashes like camera bulbs fire in my brain
-->Is this truly me, am I going insane?
-->In faint bloody flashes I watch people die
-->And if that was me, then who am I?
* A creepy, somewhat sexual variant: the PV for ''Agitated Screams Of Maggots'' by Music/DirEnGrey
does this to one the protagonist ''and also the viewer'' for effect. It is a MindScrew, which the maggot monster is forcing on the protagonist and then, as the video continues, moving from Mind Rape to attempting physical rape of the cultists on Marcus's orders.]]

-->To cut you open

!!!"Mundane" Torture[[folder:Religion & Mythology]]
* Demons in Christianity can inflict devastating mental assaults (see also DemonicPossession). There's also the interpretative depiction of Hell as a place of Mind Rape is an alternative to the rather-cartoonish FireAndBrimstoneHell. Specifically, this Mind Rape effect is reasoned to be self-inflicted and caused by [[RageAgainstTheHeavens eternal separation from God]], resulting to loss of sense of purpose, sanity and even the ability to comprehend love and "everlasting happiness".
** One interpretation popular in the Mormon Church is that when you stand before God you will have total recall of all you have done (except those offenses of which you've repented, i.e. confessed and forsaken) and be acutely aware of how every action you took affected those around you (meaning that, in the end, God won't judge you, you will judge yourself), thus it will be one big MindProbe of your deepest memories. Which would be a pretty tortuous thing if you made many mistakes in life, thus hell is a self-imposed state of mind brought on by knowing just how much of a terrible person you are.
** Another interpretation is that the [[YouCannotGraspTheTrueForm true form]] of {{God}} can do this to you, hence why Islam forbids any depiction of God's true form, and why Judaism forbids saying God's true name (which is TheUnpronounceable, while "Yahweh" and "Jehovah" are just approximations).
* Numerous beings in Shinto mythology can do this to you. Kitsune, and to a smaller extent, Nekomata , to name a couple examples.

* ''Roleplay/DinoAttackRPG'':
** A more mundane example without use of supernatural abilities or brainwashing: Dust plays with Lutsky's mind to such a degree that he [[DrivenToMadness turns him into a paranoid psychopath]]. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Eventually, that comes back to bite him.]]
** This is more or less what Loop did to Katerina Schattenberg [[spoiler:just before he died]].

* "MK Ultra" by {{Music/Muse}}, with a title inspired by a US torture and mind-control program [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltra Project MKUltra at]] Website/TheOtherWiki, is about Mind Rape:

[[folder:Radio]]
* In ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy1978'', Zaphod Beeblebrox is abducted and forced into the Total Perspective Vortex. As the guide notes, this is a fiendish torture device designed to strip away every shred of illusion and reveal to the individual exactly how small and insignificant and inconsequential they are to the Universe as a whole. The shock normally annhilates the brain. But the infinite majesty and grandeur of the Universe is outclassed when confronted with an ego the size of that possessed by Zaphod Beeblebrox. it simply cannot compete.
%%* In ''Radio/TheBurkissWay'''s parody of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', mind rape is attempted on Winston Smoth through the medium of Room 101.

A character is attacked by a villain in the most painful non-physical way possible: Their mind and [[OurSoulsAreDifferent soul]] are assaulted with painful, horrifying visions, sensations, and/or memories, and their will and sanity broken until afterward they're [[HeroicBSOD powerless, hopeless]] and [[ConvenientComa numb]], but [[EmptyShell not dead]], although they [[FateWorseThanDeath may wish they were.]] Minimal to no sexual contact actually occurs, but as the name indicates, everything else is there to resemble a rape -- the ultimate violation of privacy and consent, extreme humiliation that annihilates all sense of self-esteem, near-absolute helplessness even against your very own mind and body, and the corrupt perversion of what could otherwise be a source of identity and joy.

!!! Examples of Psychic Assaults:

[[folder:Multiple Media]]
* ''Toys/{{BIONICLE}}'':
** [[EldritchAbomination Tren Krom]] tends to inflict this when he searches someone's mind for information, as it also gives the victim [[TheseAreThingsManWasNotMeantToKnow glimpses into Tren Krom's mind.]] The fact that he tends to assault his victims with his long, red, fleshy appendages while doing this only adds to the disturbing subtext.
** Toa of Psionics are also capable of doing this, and it's implied that they can cause permanent brain damage with their powers.
** The Makuta species has many mental powers, too, and where a Toa of Psionics may stop, they will gladly push further. When Teridax unleashed his full powers on Karzahni's mind, it reduced the latter into a vegetable on two legs. Yet Karzahni was the one most famous for his soul and mind-crushing visions. Makuta evidently like beating others at their own game.
** Speaking of Karzahni, he liked to do this with his [[WhatIf Mask of Alternate Futures]] when he was feeling particularly sadistic, even managing to get one over on Teridax by showing him a vision of a future where he lost and [[AwakeningTheSleepingGiant Mata Nui awoke none too pleased]]. The result was actually enough to get Teridax to ''scream'' in horror...until he recovered and decided in a rage to pay Karzahni back with interest.
** Onewa once managed to do this with his MaskOfPower, which normally only gives him MindControl, after he was pushed into UnstoppableRage when Nokama was dying after saving his life. The narration explicitly describes the act as him focusing the mental energies of the mask into a spear to ram right into his opponent's mind.
** Hakann of the Piraka has this as his special third power in the form of "mental blasts", and he ''loves'' using them on his enemies to make them writhe in pain before slipping into unconsciousness. After he temporarily [[PowerParasite stole half of Brutaka's power]], he was capable of frying a person's mind and killing them with it. Of course, once his leader Zaktan showed him the inherent weakness of said power when he dropped a large boulder on him...and Hakann, having been blasting Zaktan with them at the time and acting on instinct when the attack came at him, remembered too late a mental blast doesn't work against an opponent with no mind to blast and gets crushed by it.
** Gali Nuva experienced one after being hit by Dalu's SensoryOverload-inducing weapons. Her sight became so advanced that she actually peered into ''other universes'', all of which she just couldn't take in at once, and eventually broke into a furious craze, attacking her partners and running off into the wilderness. Thankfully, Axonn was there to cleanse her mind with his healing powers.
