* ''VideoGame/ToTheMoon'': The two doctors are hired protagonists work for an entire fake memory ''company''. People on their deathbed hire this company to alter Johnny's provide them with fake memories of them doing something that they had always wanted to do in order life but were unable to make him do or had just never gotten around to doing, so that they can die thinking he had gone without regrets. The process actually works akin to TimeTravel, in that they cannot simply create a new memory and stick it in somewhere, they have to travel into the moon."past" and alter it so that future events play out differently in the client's memories.

** The Mandela Effect stems from this trope; [[WildMassGuessing it hypothesizes]] that fake memories are in fact glimpses into alternate universes. Its name is derived from a blog post where the OP said that she thought she remembered Nelson Mandela dying in prison, and shared that memory with several people at Dragoncon 2005, when in fact he was still alive at the time (he died in 2013).

* In 1910, an expectant public was awaiting the return of Halley's Comet. A few months before Halley's Comet arrived, they experienced the Great Daylight Comet of 1910, which was brighter and more spectacular than Halley turned out to be. The next time Halley's Comet arrived in 1986, many old people came forward with vivid tales of the comet's last appearance, but actually many of their accounts described the Great Daylight Comet rather than Halley's Comet.
