* Rei, or rather, Niko, from ''VideoGame/PersonaQShadowOfTheLabyrinth''. She was a teenaged girl who died in 1999 due to TheDiseaseThatShallNotBeNamed, and in the afterlife started to grow resentful when she felt that she was alone and died for no meaning. Chronos, one of the aspects of [[TheGrimReaper Death]], took pity on her and tried to cheer her up by replicating the school she was supposed to go to ([[VideoGame/{{Persona 4}} Yasogami High]]), but [[NotQuiteTheRightThing that only made things worse]] as it reminded Rei what she missed out on because she died so early. In an attempt to cheer her up, Chronos [[LaserGuidedAmnesia took away her memories]] and turned the entire replicated school into a festival to make her happy, while sealing any possibilities of her memory returning within the labyrinths of the game, and just to delay the inevitable a little longer, took away his own memories and called himself Zen. Once you get through all the labyrinths, Zen's memories return to him, he gives Rei her memories back, and things get sour from there.

* Itsuki Tachibana in the second ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' and Choushiro Kirishima in the fourth.

to:

* ''Franchise/FatalFrame''
** ''Fatal Frame II'' has
Itsuki Tachibana in Tachibana, the second ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' imprisoned boy that served as a guide to Mio. It's not as shocking as most other examples, as Minakami Village is a ghost town, but it is presented as a shock to Mio and the player to finally enter the storehouse that is his prison and seeing his [[DrivenToSuicide hung corpse]] in a flashback.
** ''Fatal Frame IV'' has
Choushiro Kirishima, one of the player characters. His story begins awakening on the ground of the hospital and trying to find and bring down Yuu Haibara. His final chapter involves trapping Haibara on a roof and [[TakingYouWithMe throwing himself off of it with him]] and the playable Kirishima in the fourth.is shown [[DiscoveringYourOwnDeadBody observing his corpse]]. He seems to take it rather calmly.
---> '''Kirishima:''' So. That's how it is, huh?

** This is just one of the [[WalkingSpoiler many]] [[TheReveal reveals]] about the protagonist, Hajime Hinata, in ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2''. Before the game started, he underwent a surgery that [[DeathOfPersonality destroyed and replaced his personality]]; the Hajime we've been playing as is just what the Neo-World Program could cobble together from his original self. [[HeroicBSOD The poor guy doesn't take this well]].

After an attack by his semi-organic MechaMooks on Morrowind's capital city, home of fellow former PhysicalGod Almalexia, she sends you to Sotha Sil's Clockwork City to kill him. After navigating his many death traps, you reach the command center of his city where you find him...already dead by the hand of Almalexia. It turns out that ''she'' is the one who has gone insane and plans to kill you and the other former Dunmeri deities so that only she remains to be worshiped by the Dunmer people.

* The curse of Class 3-3 in ''Literature/{{Another}}'' causes a dead person to be added to the class roster each school year. Because the "extra" is not aware they are dead and everyone else's memories are altered to accept their presence, it's nearly impossible to tell who in the class is the "extra" until they vanish following graduation. In the meantime, the members of the class suffer any number of {{Cruel and Unusual Death}}s as reality attempts to [[BalancingDeathsBooks correct itself]]. This has been going on for two and a half ''decades'' - in 1998, the year the story takes place, the "extra" is [[spoiler:assistant homeroom teacher Ms. Mikami, aka Kouichi's aunt Reiko]].

* Mixed in among Class 3-3 in ''Literature/{{Another}}'' is a person who is dead but has no awareness of it. Nor does anyone else, thanks to a combination of FakeMemories and {{Retconjuration}}. This "Extra" is the catalyst for a curse that causes those in the class and their immediate relatives to be vulnerable to {{Cruel And Unusual Death}}s of varying degrees. The "Extra" is different each time, there is typically no way to identify the student until ''after'' graduation when he or she fades away, and this curse has been victimizing 3-3 Students for two and a half ''decades.'' The dead person in 1998, the year in which the story takes place, is actually the assistant to the home room teacher, Ms. Mikami, who is also Kouichi's aunt Reiko.
