* In ''Series/{{iZombie}}'', Blaine takes the second version of the zombie cure and loses his memory. He becomes a much more pleasant person, and Peyton falls for him again. Ravi's attempt to cure the amnesia fails to work, but Don E suspects that Blaine is lying and tells Ravi. Ravi tells Peyton, who asks Blaine. He admits that he did lose his memories for a few days, but then everything came flooding back. He decided that he liked who he was as an amnesiac far more than his typical persona. Unfortunately for him, Peyton doesn't buy it and leaves, setting Blaine back onto the dark path. Of course, at that point, he can't hide the truth any more, as Major has also taken the cure, which means that everyone will know anyway in a few days.

* Archer in ''VisualNovel/FateStayNight'' claims to not remember which Heroic Spirit he is in order to carry out his plan to kill Shirou while making it seem like he was just another casualty of the Holy Grail War. (A Main/DoubleSubversion, as he mentions that at first he really didn't know who he was, but he remembered fairly quickly. He just never let on that he had.)

* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', Lucrezia [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20061117#.VvrgLuIrLIU pulls this]] whilst [[GrandTheftMe possessing Agatha's body]], telling Agatha's rescue party that she's been drugged and can't remember any of them. She manages to pull it off for a while, too, since no-one imagines for a second that it could be anyone ''other'' than Agatha talking to them. It isn't until she encounters someone that knew the original Lucrezia and recognises her mannerisms that it all goes downhill.
