* ''WesternAnimation/{{Finding Nemo}}'': When Dory is swimming around the chain in the Sydney harbor, having lost grip on her memories again, she remembers almost nothing except that she "lost someone". She could either be referring to Nemo, who she has been watching Marlin frantically track down for the last few days, or [[spoiler: Marlin himself, who has just left her behind - the reason she's now lost and confused in the first place.]] The memories return when she hears the name "Sydney", which she has been repeating to herself the whole movie. A bit of a different example, since Dory has a fairly accurate case of real-life anterograde amnesia; her memories simply fell apart because she lost the social connection she associates with them. The Sydney address, another connection she has to her friend, repairs them.

* ''Literature/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' gives us a non-magical instance; Duke mentions how some people who have a bad trip on LSD have trouble remembering anything save for a few scattered details. He mentions this in reference to the girl his attorney effectively drugged and kidnapped, Lucy, stating that even if they just set her loose and hoped her memory was fucked, she might "spend two more days in the grip of total amnesia, then snap out of it with no memory of anything but our room number at the Flamingo [Hotel]."

* In Spindles End by ''RobinMcKinley'', the two main adult characters try to hide attention from their young ward (the princess) by altering the memories of the entire village such that everybody "remembers" her coming to live with them a month earlier than she did. It's an almost perfect spell... and when the person it missed figures it out, all heck very nearly breaks loose.

* The ending of ''CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' shows that only the Psycho-Pirate remembers the multiverse or the details of the Crisis itself. Everyone else only has vague memories of a big battle and the skies turning red. He apparently attempted to inform people of what actually happened, only for people to assume he's insane, so they sent him to a mental institute.
