* The first season of ''TwoGuysAGirlAndAPizzaPlace'' had a recurring character of a crazy patron who would tell stories about his life that were all actually plots of popular movies. Then he was PutOnABus.

* Used in the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime: Burgundy recounts her first encounter with Cilan: he thrashed her in a Gym, then he and his Pansage loom over her with their rape faces on, much to the horror of poor little Burgundy and her Oshawott. Arguably subverted, since Cilan acted rather unsettling during their rematch. Doesn't help that he's also a MemeticMolester.

* ''WesternAnimation/Archer'' has numerous characters with this fault, either remembering odd events, not remembering a particular event (or oddly not remembering one memory out of a chain of similar situations even though remembering any of them at all meant that they should have really known better than to get into their current situation), or remembering stuff that never happened at all.

Added DiffLines:

** Played with several times and as early as the first season, where Peter set up the memory sequence, only for the clip to play the previous scene that led to the current situation. Lois rightly pointed that out. In another, Stewie sets up the gag only to be baffled that it was just dialog and there was no clip. Another gag revealed that one of Peter's memories was so out of left field, they didn't even have a clip to cut to and frantically looked for one that fit the situation the best.

*** Was that before or after he built a raft out of a couple of live sea turtles and a rope made from his own hair?
*** I think it was around his trip to Singapore.
