* Finch from ''VideoGame/XenobladeChronicles2'' will forget her own name in the same sentence she just used it. This is actually a gameplay mechanic for her, as she will forget what abilities she'd used, causing their {{Cooldown}}s to [[CooldownManipulation immediately reset]].

* On ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice,'' [[EnfantTerrible Klarion]], since he's a [[HumanoidAbomination Lord of Chaos]] whose mind works differently than a human's. Upon being told that [[MadScientist T.O. Morrow]] is in a coma, he pauses to ask "Did I know that already?" WordOfGod also noted that while everyone in [[OmniscientCouncilOfVagueness the Light]] knew about [[spoiler:Black Manta]] being Kaldur's father, "whether Klarion remembers is a legit question."

* ''Film/TheAbsentMindedWaiter'': This self-explanatory title is a 1977 short film with Creator/SteveMartin as the waiter. His absent-minded blundering starts small-scale, when he asks for their order without giving them menus, and gets bigger-scale, like when he pours water all over the dinner table because he forgot to set the glasses down first.

Compare AbsentMindedProfessor. For showrunners assuming their audience's memory is this bad, see ViewersAreGoldfish.

* Shinnosuke in ''RanmaOneHalf'' remembers his own name, what his duties are... and that's about it. Most of his forgetfulness is PlayedForLaughs, including the time when he forgot ''his own grandfather'', who was his sole human company for much (if not all) of his life, much to his grandfather's annoyance.

* On one of the ''U.S. Acres'' segments of ''WesternAnimation/GarfieldAndFriends'', Wade's cousin Newton, who has a ''really'' bad memory visits. He keeps forgetting who Orson is less than a minute after he tells him. One hilarious dialogue between them:
