** [[MegaMan5 Dark Man]] uses this for his weapon.



** In "Mega-Pinocchio", his plan was to con Mega into believing he was human so he could plant a chip in him, controlling his mind. However, rather than act on it right away, he spent time toying with Mega Man's mind and gives him existential crises before exerting full control. To make it worse, once he has exerted full control he has Mega Man reprogram all of Dr. Light's robots and has him nearly kill his own family by crushing them when they were trapped in the dumpster. Then, when Roll comes back to free her brother, Wily orders Mega Man to vaporize her.
** Ice Man does this literally in "Ice Age", kicking Rush and breaking him into pieces.

** Mega Man leaping in front of a shot meant for... the Lincoln Memorial. Then again, the repercussions of just standing there and not trying to neutralize the shot somehow wouldn't be pleasant. The best part is that Mega Man himself knows it was crazy and asks Dr. Light why the heck he took a shot to protect a statue. The answer is more-or-less that Mega Man's humanity wouldn't allow Lincoln to be destroyed.

His plan in the episode is to send the machine into space, where he'd be able to control the dreams of anyone on Earth.
