I've come up with the perfect plan to defeat you once and for all, by playing upon your greatest weakness: your loyalty to your pathetic friends. Don't worry; they're safe and sound right here with me. But I don't think they're on your side anymore! It seems their allegiance now lies with me! It's funny how our friends are so quick to turn....

Villains who can take complete control of others to do their bidding as Psychics or through Magic, hypnosis and/or mind control. The victim then becomes a helpless puppet and most often a de facto villain falling under Possessed/Brainwashed. Some villains also brainwash victims through manipulation and charisma to the point of making followers absolutely devoted to them and ready to commit the worst of acts upon receiving orders (loyal to them only, not ideologies).

Brainwashers differ from Possessors by the fact that they do not need to enter a victim's body to take control and said victim has their true spirit eclipsed instead of turning evil, though the outcome is quite similar in both cases.
