** Albeit some of that can be clarified as [[spoiler: the Joker's mind chip on him.]]For example, his disdain and regret for being Robin was a result of [[spoiler: the Joker's chip beginning to effect him. Once it's gone,]] so is any disdain toward his past. He actually didn't blame Bruce nor Barbara and did enjoy being Robin.

* In the NewJediOrder, after Tahiri is rescued from an attempt to brainwash her into believing she was a [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]], it became a running subplot for several books that she retained most of the false memories subconsciously and under moments of extreme stress would adopt Vong mannerisms or even spout the Vong language. It was eventually revealed that the brainwashing had failed to overwrite Tahiri's original personality but ''had'' succeeded in creating a Yuuzhan Vong personality, Riina, who was almost totally independent of Tahiri's own mind. They ended up [[SplitPersonalityMerge combining into a third personality]] to avoid going incurably insane.

* ''Anime/GundamSEEDDestiny'' has Stella, an Earth Alliance Extended who is brainwashed so she freezes up whenever anyone says "die" and absolutely trusts anyone who says "protect". Due to her memories not being properly wiped between missions, her programming leads her to associate Shinn with [[DeclarationOfProtection protection]], thus allowing her to remember who he is.

* May have played a part in JimmyNeutronBoyGenius, depending on your interpretation of the episode "Love Potion 976/J". Considering that we don't know the full extent of the after effects of those love potions, you could have a nice debate on whether Jimmy, Sheen, and Carl's respective loves for Cindy, Libby, and Judy is "real".
