15 Anime Characters Who Have Mind Control Powers

Voting Rules

Vote up the anime characters with the strongest mind control abilities.

Having another person control your thoughts and behavior is one of the scariest things imaginable, which is probably why it shows up so often in anime.

Mind control abilities often show up in villains, like Sosuke Aizen from Bleach who can take full possession of another person's senses and make them act according to his will. But the ability to control minds isn't restricted to villains - Hitoshi Shinso in My Hero Academia was ostracized for his creepy ability, but all he wants is to use it to be a hero.
