** The same thing happens to the protagonist of [[spoiler: Saberhagen's ''The Frankenstein Papers'']]. Justified in the report he files, after regaining his memory and realizing he's [[spoiler: an alien who'd been investigating the electrical activity in Frankenstein's lab: amnesia is a typical side-effect of exposure to high voltages in his species, and the lab's equipment wasn't properly insulated]].

* Zigzagged in one ''WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}}'' story where Simon bar Sinister's Forget-me-Net causes the hero to forget who he is and think's he's an apple peddler. When Sweet Polly realizes this, she and several citizens try to hit him over the head to cure him, but seeing as he's invulnerable, none of it works; even attempting it with a ''steam shovel'' only breaks the machine. Eventually, Polly accidentally invokes the flaw in Simon's device (which is simply, saying his name when he can hear it) and he snaps out of it.
* Zigzagged in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TennesseeTuxedoAndHisTales''. Chumley is hit on the head and thinks he's a rich businessman; once Tennessee finds out what's wrong with him, he takes the smart option for once, and attempts to take him to a doctor. However, Chumley resists his attempts, and after HillarityEnsues, he knocks himself on the head again and is cured.
