* ''Podcast/TheAdventureZone'' has Davenport, the assistant to the head of the Bureau of Balance whose primary method of communication is PokemonSpeak; while he can say other things, he eventually defaults to saying "Davenport!" a lot. [[spoiler: It turns out that, after he and the others fled their own dead universe, everyone had to wipe their memories to avoid drawing the attention of the Hunger. Davenport, as the captain of the group, had to wipe his own memories so thoroughly that all he really had left was his name.]]

** Before "Remembrance of the Daleks" aired, fans constantly made jokes about how the Daleks' greatest weakness was stairs, as the way they were constructed pretty much prevented them from climbing up the stairs. The cliffhanger of "Remembrance of the Daleks" involves the Seventh Doctor being stuck in between a locked door at the top of a stairway, and a Dalek that is levitating upwards towards him. This was re-introduced in Series 1 in 2005 when a Dalek was mocked for not being able to climb up the stairs, only to proceed to levitate up the stairs.

** Before "Remembrance In 2016, Creator/StevenMoffat's Q&A column in ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' retconned the humorous running business of the Daleks" aired, fans constantly made jokes about how the Daleks' greatest weakness was stairs, as the way they were constructed pretty much prevented them from climbing up the stairs. The cliffhanger of "Remembrance of the Daleks" involves the Seventh Doctor being stuck in between a locked door at the top of a stairway, and a Dalek that is levitating upwards towards him. This was re-introduced TARDIS not liking Clara Oswald in Series 1 in 2005 when 7. Turns out it wasn't because of the seemingly impossible nature of her existence, but because the TARDIS knew [[spoiler: Clara and the Doctor would have too close a Dalek relationship and become the Hybrid that almost destroyed the space-time continuum]] and was mocked working its resentment out on her for events that not being able to climb up the stairs, only to proceed to levitate up wouldn't unfold until Series 9, but almost didn't happen at all because the stairs.original plan was for Clara to leave at the end of Series 8!

* ''WebComic/ARedtailsDream'' has the main protagonist Hannu, a habitually lazy teenager, often feeling tired and constantly trying to get some sleep (instead of proceeding on his adventures). [[spoiler:It is later revealed that before entering the Spirit World, he fell and seriously injured his neck, which his spirit form still feels. If he will returns to the land of the living, back into his physical body, he will die shortly.]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', Dory's amnesia initially comes off as more of a comedic quirk than a genuine handicap, and it seems like a natural part of her CuteClumsyGirl persona. But as the film goes on, it gradually becomes clear that she's deeply bothered by her inability to hold onto memories, particularly since it means that she can't remember anything about her real family, and it makes it almost impossible for her to form lasting relationships. As much as she might annoy Marlin, she ''does'' deeply value him as a friend...since he's one of the few friends that she's ever had. It becomes even worse in ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', where it's revealed that her memory problems caused her to lose her family, that she outright catches anxiety when faced with throught that she will be left all alone, with nobody to help her, that even her parents were worried about her future and so much more... The sequel also turns several of her personality quirks from the original film (such as the "just keep swimming" RunningGag) and has them PlayedForDrama as a result of ParentalAbandonment.

* Anime/YugiohArcV: Early on, the series poked fun at Yuya's mom habit of taking in strays animals into their house, first by Yuya realizing one morning there are more pets whose names he doesn't even know, then after[[ImTakingHimHomeWithMe taking Sora in]] and him telling her that he can't just pick people up the same way as animals, it's all played for laughs both at Yoko's weakness [[CutenessProximity for cuteness]] and Sora's DeliberatelyCuteChild antics in order to get what he wants, [[spoiler: Fast forward to episode 127 where it's revealed that Yuya's existance is due to him being the [[SealedInsideaPersonShapedCan fragment of Zarc's split soul]] and most definitely not Yusho's nor Yoko's biological son since the former realizes he has no memories of him being born, meaning Yoko might have picked Yuya up long, ''long'' before Sora.]]

* ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'': Koenma originally was ReallySevenHundredYearsOld but looked like a baby, with a pacifier. He could occasionally become a teenager, but the joke was that he still has the pacifier. Later, the pacifier was "explained" as an energy storage device to give him a non-comedic reason for having it when not a baby (although [[VoodooShark this doesn't explain why such a thing would look like a pacifier to begin with]]).



* If one takes the [[VideoGame/SandsOfDestruction game]] ''Sands of Destruction'' as the original, and the [[Anime/SandsOfDestruction anime]][[note]](production of the game began first, but the anime was released first)[[/note]] and [[Manga/SandsOfDestruction manga]] as RetCons instead of AlternateContinuity, this trope is firmly in place as regards Morte's motivation. In the game, she merely wants to destroy the world because it's already ending itself and she can't come up with a better use for a dying world than [[ItAmusedMe assuaging her own boredom]]. [[spoiler:Naturally, the moment she realizes both that the world ''can'' be saved and falling in love is even more fun than blowing stuff up, she changes her mind.]] She's [[GenkiGirl incredibly upbeat]] throughout the game, rushing into things without a thought. In the anime, her motivation changes to revenge for [[spoiler:the deaths of her parents and brother: she doesn't know who is responsible, and feels that the world is worthless, so killing everyone is her solution; she only changes her mind at the last minute when she realizes that revenge isn't going to bring her family back and that the world actually does have its good points as well as its problems]]. She's also more serious, fitting her grimmer motives. In the manga, she's just as upbeat as she was in the game but her motivation is instead changed to [[spoiler:being now the one who wished for the state of the world a thousand years ago, but she was tired and forgot to wish that humans and beastmen would be friends, so everyone's racism is ''all her fault'' and the only way she knows to fix the world is to wipe it out and start again from scratch; she's killed before she fully changes her mind, but Kyrie manages to bring her back at the end of the story - which, being the ''end'', doesn't allow us time to know what she's really thinking]].

* ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'' has the character Ato-ko Shirogane, first introduced in the GagSeries ''Remember my Love(craft-sensei)'' as a CovertPervert who browses porn sites by the hundreds ''simultaneously'' and drops a ClusterBleepBomb when describing what she would do to [[EmotionlessGirl Cuuko]]. Her only "appearance" in the main anime is near the end of the second season, when she sends a box of LovePotion-laced chocolates to Nyarko, causing [[HilarityEnsues hilarity to ensue]]. When Ato-ko pops up in the novels, however, it turns out that she [[{{Cuckold}} steals other womens' boyfriends/lovers]] [[EmotionEater because she literally feeds on the emotional pain it causes]]. This effect also extends to all the friendly, polite interaction she has with the show's stars Nyarko and Mahiro, since she's trying to steal the latter away from the former, and makes the chocolate incident darker by implying that she was trying to artifically speed their relationship along so it'd be "tastier" to destroy.

* In once chapter of ''Manga/KaguyaSamaWaKokurasetai'', Kaguya is shown looking for fireworks in her bedroom while delirious from a fever, and in a later chapter is shown to go starry eyed when the possibility of going to a fireworks festival with [[LoveInterest Shirogane]] comes up. At first, this just seems like a fun little quirk, but then we get to chapter 44 and find out that [[spoiler:fireworks represent the summer memories that she's never had due to her overbearing and emotionally neglectful father.]]
