You know what. Stop reading comic books. Stop watching TV. Cease all indulgence in fiction.
Clearly you only watch stuff so you can come here and bitch about it, and don't actually enjoy ANYTHING.
not /co/ but yugioh did something like this
> You can't contain me any longer. Soon I will controll you and then slay all your friends, because they are all idiots and believe in the power of friendship!
Main character jumps out of a window breaking both his legs.
Good luck with that evil plot.
Drugs are proof that if you are being mind controlled you are completely fucked, just try to imagine willing yourself while on PCP then try to imagine doing that while some guy is constantly editing your thoughts.
Mind control is OP as fuck.
httyd sure filled in a lot of mind control clichés.
but i still cried 5 times
>>character is mindcontrolled
>other characters, instead of wasting their time trying to coach the mind controlled character into beating the mind control go to the source instead and destroy it, instantly freeing the mind controlled character
In RE5 /v/dya this shit is even part of gameplay.
It literally has "press O to yell mind-control cliche".
>Press O: "I know you're in there"
>Press O: "You have to fight"
>Press O: "I know you can hear me"
still don't know if they were taking a piss of were serious
>All the protagonists have been brainwashed/turned to stone, and it's up to a minor side character to save them
Gravity Falls did it really well
>character is mindcontrolled
>"I know you are in there"
>"you have to fight it"
>character disspells the mind control
>"Wow, that was surprisingly easy. Why didn't I think of 'fighting it' before this?"
>everyone leaves to go get Chinese food
>It's a hypnosis/mind control/brainwashing episode
Medaka doesn't just snap out of it though. She can copy any ability she's seen before, and she's just seen a mind reading power and a mind control power, then when she fights her best buddy Zenkichi she ends up accidentally reading his memories of her and brainwashing herself back to normal.
>character is mind controlled
>force of will is so powerful they turn the tables and take over the VILLAIN'S mind
>they do not relinquish control
>Watching Jungle Book as a kid
>Would run away from the television whenever Kaa came on
>I remember my Primary School teacher reading a story version of the Disney film in school, and when the Kaa section came up, I had a panic attack.
>Years later, watch Day of the Jackanapes, when Sideshow Bob hypnotises Bart.
>Watch in mesmerised terror.
>Can't stop thinking about hypnosis and mind control
>Play Destroy All Humans
>Just hypnotise everyone even when it does fuck all, and then I'd do weird role-plays with the hypnotised subjects.
>Hadn't discovered masturbation yet, so I'd just roleplay that I was giving orders and they were obeying everything I said.
>Didn't know what sex was at the time, so I didn't know what to do beyond ordering them to strip
And that's how fetishes evolve.
>Character is mind controlled
>Villain doesn't enact a long haul sinister plan to have the character gradually act nicer, treat people better, maybe even get together with someone, slowly but surely improving their lives and the lives of everyone around them by being a better person
>And then snapping the control off at the worst possible moment to leave the character to suddenly 'revert' back to their old selves and cause massive psychological trauma and ruin for everyone
Because when control is released, the character will just go back to being whatever kind of jerk or hung-up protag they were before, and everyone will realize it was all a lie, leaving everyone feeling tremendously uncomfortable about the things said and what they might have said and revealed in all that time.
It's like making everyone wake up from a dream of a better life they thought was real. You gotta sow the seeds of dissension and distrust real deep.
Has there ever been a super with the power to just make people trip balls? That'd be so overpowered. Imagine trying to stop the guy robbing a bank then flopping onto the floor cause your stomach drops and you spin out.
imagine witnessing a fight between mindreaders who are 4channers
they would meme at eachother and express themselves with reaction images
>"guess I have to use that!"
*recalls all the shit from /b/*
>villain Mwwahahaha I've controlled the mind of your friend! Now I will have him kill you all!
>mind controlled hero:"Fuck you moffukka, im in control here! I kill my friends cuz i want to!"
>Character never recovers his senses and gets killed
>It's happened before
That was the worse mindcontrol thing in any movie ever. I guess I'm still butthurt that the big bad of the movie controlled giant dragons by yelling really loud and swinging a stick
/co/ shits on everything (including each other) because it makes them seem like what they do like is of a higher standard, and that they have better taste, instead of different taste.
>Mind controlled guy is about to kill the MC
>MC begs him to listen
>Then the guy turns around and fucks over the villain
>Turns out he was fucking with him the whole time
My favorite cliche
I wonder if that's ever been in a movie. Like somebody just had an extra say "These pretzels are making me thirsty," in a scene specifically because they remembered that episode.
>villain attempts mind control on a character
>mind control does not work because character is too stupid/doesn't have a brain.
>>hero is so stupid villain can't mind control
>>there is so much stupid that the villain becomes stupid
>villain swaps bodies with protagonist
>villain can't use the hero's full power because he doesn't understand/isn't used to the body
Captain Ginyu taking over Goku's body probably wasn't one of his best moments
>villain vampire uses mindcontrol infection to attack hero
>villain gets infected with the hero traits instead because the hero didnt feel like turning into a vampire
>vampire starts craving for biscuits and tea
>Villain uses hypnosis
>Hero reflects it back at the villain
>Villain becomes completely brain dead
>villain captures the friend of the character
>said friend releases chemicals into the body of the villain
>villain's brain activity is slowed so much he experiences a second in thousands of years looking at this face
worst fucking fate ever
>The "good guy" is infinitely more horrifyingly evil than the villains.
Some DBZ Games actually have Ginyu's bodyswap as a move. Xenoverse lets you use it only in multiplayer versus. It's extremely broken too. It gives you their character; as in EVERYTHING (Moves,health,ect...) You could be losing the entire match then bodyswap and win either by time or finishing off your opponent. One gimmick is to make a weak character with completely useless moves then body swap with them
Also once you bodyswap the old body can't use the bodyswap move for the remainder of the match
Goku would hold back fighting Vegeta in a tournament setting.
Vegeta wanted him to fight if his life and the safety of others was dependant on it. The way Goku fights best.
Trouble for Vegeta was that Goku was STILL holding back fighting him.
I think that's why he has a mini breakdown after the fight. He realised how fucking broken Goku is.
No matter how hard he trains Goku will always be one step ahead. He can only ever play catch up.
>never watching the greatest sitcom comedy of all time
>character pretends to be a villain to gain the villains trust on there side
>character begins to make friends with some of the villains
>character becomes a villain, main villain loves them
>in the big fight heros vs villains, character betrays the villain, as it was his goal the entire time to convince the hero's he was a villain so he could gain the full trust of the villain
this ones my absolute fav. It's done well when even you the viewer is surprised that he didn't turn to the villain side, makes it that more awesome
It's kind of funny when you think that the first time they fight, Goku even tells Vegeta that hard work means more than being born in the elite. And then Vegeta works way harder and is still weaker.
No one knows. Not even Goku himself.
It's just coincidence. Destiny. A combination of Saiyan genes, experience fighting, love for battle, love for others, sense of justice, determination, bravery, urgency from the need to save everyone and everything?
Arguably everything Vegeta has too, he's tried to align himself with Goku, but ultimately he can't replicate Goku's Gokuness. Goku always finds a bizarre new way to innovate. Goku always stumbles across something that helps him turn the tides again and again.
Something about Goku is inexplicably special and it pisses Vegeta off to no end. Goku is the trump card of the universe. He only loses when he's meant to.
And when he gives up, in BOG, he is revealed to be considerably stronger than goku, simply because his power is tied to his emotional state while goku is just brawn. Motherfucker throws Beerus a punch that staggers him when ssj3 goku couldnt touch him
in the super series Whis says its because Vegeta thinks too much and gets either arrogant or afraid, resulting in him losing his fights, while Goku thinks too little and when he gets wasted its due to that.
vegeta is the one that without any further training can punch beerus tho
if you think about it, vegeta only truly loses when he gets his spirit crushed, he's like a bipolar schoolgirl, he's either proclaiming himself to be the best in the world or he is weeping.
Eighteen breaking his arm when he was declaring himself SUPER vegeta was hilarious because he imediately lost all will to fight, he could've probably kept it up and maybe won but no, he's either claiming he will defeat everything or he is a sniveling coward. Same thing with cell.
>the hero convinces the henchmen that their boss is a shit
>they rise up and defeat him themselves and then fuck off to do their own thing
But the thing that happened in one form of popular fiction happened in another form of popular fiction. Doesn't that drive you up the wall??
Veggie was having a midlife crisis at that point too, as he now had a family and 'friends' when the old Vegeta would have scoffed at such weaknesses. He let himself fall under Babidi's command so he can prove to himself he still could be as ruthless and evil as he originally was. Even under that much evil mojo he still couldn't keep his conscience buried and ended up sacrificing himself to protect his kid.
Vegeta gets more character development than Goku in the entire Z series and still does in the new movies and series.
