Hypnosis Show (Chinese: 催眠Show) is Taiwanese Mandopop artist Show Luo's third Mandarin studio album. It was released on 14 October 2005 by Avex Taiwan. After receiving good reviews for the music video of the first lead track, "真命天子" (Destined Guy), featuring Jolin Tsai, the album went on pre-order sale and all of the 10,000 copies were sold in one day.[1]

Four editions of the album were released, including Hypnosis Show (Limited Charity Edition) (催眠Show 限量慈善) (CD) which included a pass to Luo's debut solo concert 'Love's Strength' Charity Concert (《愛的力量》慈善演唱會) at Taipei Arena, Hypnosis Show (MV Encore Edition) (催眠Show 冠軍影音安可) containing four music videos; and Hypnosis Show (Commemorate Edition) (催眠Show 慶功加場版) (CD+DVD) with a bonus DVD containing 70 minutes of highlight live footage from Love's Strength Charity Concert on 18 November 2005.

In this album Show continues his partnership with producers Golden Melody Award winner and songwriter Di Zi (Chinese: 阿弟仔), Bi Guoyong (Chinese: 畢國勇) and Guo Jianliang (Chinese: 郭建良) plus Chen Wei (Chinese: 陳偉) of For Take One Music and Eric Ng (Chinese: 黃韻仁) of Funkie Monkies Productions, as well as choreographer Tommy (Chinese: 大目) of Dance Soul studios.

The first lead track, "真命天子" (Destined Guy), a collaboration with Jolin Tsai, is a dance track, in it she rapped and performed in the music video with Luo. The other lead track "自我催眠" (Self-Hypnosis) is composed by fellow artist Jay Chou, especially for Luo with the music video featuring his then co-host on 100% Entertainment Barbie Shu.
