Hey looking for recommendations of any anime where one or more characters don't have full free will.

Examples:
Two animes I've seen that have these themes is Scrapped Princess and Princess Tutu. In Scrapped Princess an alien race had the power to take over the minds of any human on the planet except for our protagonist. In Princess Tutu you had the puppet master who's stories would become reality forcing the citizens of the town to act them out.

Other examples where it's less front and center but still works for what I'm looking for would be like how in Inuyasha when his demon side took over he lost his sense of self and became a beast.

So anything where there's like an inner demon or something that can take over a character or characters. Or a magic spell which causes a character to bend to the will of another.

Bonus points if the story centers around the character gaining full control of his/her free will. Appreciate any and all recommendations thanks for your time.

Code Geass: Main character acquires the power to make people follow his commands against their will.

Elfen Lied: Main character who is of a slightly different mutant species struggles between holding onto her humanity and giving in to a strong inner instinct urging her to kill all humans.
