* ''LightNovel/ACertainMagicalIndex'':
** Index remembers very little of her own life due to periodic mind-wipes by her magician caretakers, used to keep her photographic memory from overloading her already strained brain. [[spoiler:Except that's just a lie to keep her under control]].
** After a particular incident with certain white feathers, [[spoiler:Touma Kamijou]] loses all of his memories, and just fakes it for everyone. The doctor who treated him, Heaven Canceler, is the only other person who knows.
** Poor Touma gets his memory messed with more than once. In a rare more tragic sense [[spoiler: Misaki, a girl Touma helped save that fell in love with him, uses her power over brain chemistry to help save him. Unfortunately for her, he not only lost all memory of her but cannot form new memories of her. Ouch!]]
** Mikoto finds out about [[spoiler:Touma Kamijou]]'s in Book 14, and in Book 16 she confronts Touma about it. It's also the same book where she realizes she loves him, going so far as to demand him to report any enemy to her so that she could kill them for him.

** At the end of the first book, Touma gets all his memories wiped due to being hit in the head by a spell. The spell was originally meant to be lethal, but he [[AntiMagic negated it]] before it could do any more damage. [[spoiler:It later turns out that he had another case of amnesia before this. When he was badly injured, Misaki (a telepath) used her power to anesthetize him. However, as a side effect, this somehow gave him retrograde and anterograde amnesia specific to her, and her only.]]

** Another realistic treatment is Piccolo's, or rather, Kami's memories. After arriving on Earth in a spaceship as a child, he had absolutely no memories of who he is or what he's doing there - he speculates that he probably hit his head. He also never recovers from it, and unlike Goku he never even finds out what his real name was (not that the reader ever finds out, either; he's called "the son of Katas" by Elder Guru or, after Piccolo and Kami [[SplitPersonalityMerge re-merge into a single being]], he calls himself "the Nameless Namekian").

* Something similar happens in the ''Series/{{Batman}}'' series with King Tut, an archaeology professor who gained a NapoleonDelusion after a bump to the head. Being knocked on the head again restores his sanity and true personality, but sadly for him, he tends to relapse (and make return appearances) just as easily.
