* In a ''RuneScape'' quest, a cave goblin is killed and later revived with her memories of death missing. Whether her memory of it was erased or there is not an afterlife to remember is commented on but not explained. Of course, none of this cosmological ambiguity applies to ''player'' characters, who are immediately restored to life by the gods after payment in the form of [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist wrist slaps]].

* In Myth/ChineseMythology, souls reincarnate, but before they enter their next body they have to drink some kind of tea (served by a fugly old woman) that makes them forget their previous life. This memory/memories can be recovered through aid from some powerful beings (or by Enlightening yourself), as happened in ''JourneyToTheWest''.

Any case where a character who comes BackFromTheDead remembers nothing about the afterlife. Usually done to [[OffscreenAfterlife preserve ambiguity]] about what the universe's afterlife is actually like, but sometimes we actually see the character in the afterlife before they come back with no memory of it. This may be a case of FridgeBrilliance since even if [[OurSoulsAreDifferent the soul]] exists, there's no reason for memory brain cells to record anything if the GhostInTheMachine is elsewhere while experiencing things; it would be less explainable if they did remember [[note]] An alternate explanation is that they went to paradise, and if they remembered it once they were revived, they wouldn't be able to continue living a mortal life without knowing that bliss.[[/note]] In some cases, it turns out they don't remember because [[TheNothingAfterDeath there was nothing there]], or [[CessationOfExistence there wasn't one at all]].[[note]]Though in the second case, [[FridgeLogic it should not have been possible to resurrect them with their soul intact, since said soul supposedly ceased to exist.]][[/note]]
