* In one ''ComicBook/CaptainMarVell'' story, the Psycho-Man, a mind-raping emotion-controlling mad scientist, attempts to use [[PsychopathicManchild dim-witted "hero" Drax the Destroyer]] as his pawn. Unfortunately, fear makes Drax cower in the corner, doubt makes him stand around baffled, and hate makes him attack whatever's in his path (such as Psycho-Man). Cue Psycho-Man musing that he's got to add some new emotions to his device.

* In ''VideoGame/BlazBlue'', [[TheWormThatWalks Arakune]] tends to [[ImAHumanitarian eat vanquished opponents]] in his story mode... but gives [[HighlyVisibleNinja Bang]] a pass. See, Arakune is obsessed with increasing his knowledge, and [[IdiotHero eating Bang would probably make him dumber]].

* Downplayed in ''VideoGame/{{Pikmin}} 2''. White Pikmin, along with being immune to poison, actually have poison ''in their bodies'' which damages enemies that eat them. The Pikmin still die, however, making this a HeroicSacrifice.
* In the third ending of ''VideoGame/{{Bloodborne}}'', obtained by [[spoiler:consuming three One Third Umbilical Cords, refusing Gehrman's offer and killing him, the player is greeted by the [[EldritchAbomination Moon Presence]], which descends into the Hunter's Dream to absorb the player in a soul-sucking embrace and turn them into the new host of the dream. The player, using the umbilical cords, has gained enough insight to realize what is happening, and resists the Moon Presence. This knocks it back, angers it, and triggers the TrueFinalBoss]].

Added DiffLines:

* ''ComicBook/StarWarsTheScreamingCitadel'': The Queen of Ktath'atn avoids implanting Luke with a symbiote specifically because of the risk of this. All victims of the symbiotes are joined together in a HiveMind dominated by its strongest individual; at the start of the comic this is the queen, and she doesn't want to risk seeing what happens when she tests her dominance against a strong Force-sensitive. [[spoiler:Indeed, when Luke is implanted by accident, he proves too strong to dominate and begins challenging her for leadership of the collective.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Later, another demon general, Vanir, attempts to possess one of the party, threatening physical pain if they resist his MindControl. Unfortunately, he picks Darkness as a target, and nearly has an aneurism when she keeps resisting out of pleasure.


* ''Series/TheBrittasEmpire'': During "The Last Day", Gordon Brittas dies and goes into Heaven. After 2 weeks, Saint Peter and the other denziens of heaven become annoyed by Brittas' annoying personality and they get orders from upstairs to return him back to earth for another couple of decades.

* ''Fanfic/BesidesTheWillOfEvil'': [[AnimalisticAbomination Reiziger]] makes a specialty of invading other people's minds and extracting their worst memories to break them emotionally.

It's stated to be the first time in thousands of years that Reiziger felt genuinely powerless.
* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'':
** While raiding Azkaban, [[EvilSorcerer Gravemoss]] notes that the [[Literature/HarryPotter Dementors]] won't feed on him because his memories are far too vile for them.
** Phoenix hosts tend to inspire this reaction in everything up to and including cosmic horrors, to the point where [[spoiler: Harry]] reckons he can solve the problem of soul-eating god-killing abomination by locking it in his head with a very territorial Phoenix fragment. Considering that this same fragment did something similar to an EldritchAbomination, [[spoiler: a fragment
of the Gene-seeds for Elder God Chthon]] at the end of the first book, this is entirely justified.
*** Regarding Harry in general, by chapter 60 of the sequel (after a lot of [[TraumaCongaLine trauma]] and psychic scarring)
his plans.mind is not a place where anything hostile wants to tread. When a HumanoidAbomination tries... well, screaming was involved. And not by Harry.

Then it tries to capture [[CloudCuckoolander GIR]] as well, and his insanity infects it, driving it crazy before making it blow up.
* ''Fanfic/JauneArcLordOfHunger'': [[EmotionEater The Grimm]] are unwilling to attack [[HumanoidAbomination Darth Nihilus]] despite his nature as an EmotionBomb fueled by ThePowerOfHate attracting them to him like moths to a flame.
* ''Fanfic/AKnightsTaleAsInquisitor'': During its attempt to steal the body and identity of Arturia, [[spoiler: the [[BodySnatcher Envy Demon's]] encounter with her dragonic side in her mind during the NightmareSequence is so much to handle that, for the first time in its long lifespan, it wants to ''vomit'' out all of the knowledge it gained from her memories before getting forced out of the mindscape. In fact, the aftermath shows Envy puking nonstop in the real world, showing how traumatizing that encounter was for it.]]

* When taken prisoner by a man who plans to use the regenerating ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} as an infinite source of food for his [[OurZombiesAreDifferent intelligent zombies]], said zombies quickly find him to be completely unappetizing.

OK, his rampage that devastated Heaven was justified, after they reincarnated him as a squirrel and he died squished by his own corpse dying his original death (it wasn't on purpose), but everything he did before that wasn't.
