* 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:

* ''Film/{{Flubber}}'', a remake of ''The Absent Minded Professor'', begins with Professor Brainard forgetting his own wedding for the ''third'' time, which proves to be the last straw for his long-suffering ''fiancee''.

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheCareBears'', Beastly was written as having an extremely bad short-term memory. To the point where he would often lose his train of thought mid-sentence. He wasn't written that way in other episodes.

A character whose defining characteristic is that he is ridiculously forgetful. Usually played for comedy, this trope does ''not'' cover characters with Alzheimer's or brain injuries that medically impair their short-term or long-term memory.

A character whose defining characteristic is that he is ridiculously forgetful. Not the type who forgets to wear a watch every now and then, but the type who can't find it because he's wearing it on his other wrist. He doesn't just misplace his reading glasses, he misplaces them by pushing them up onto his forehead.

* Decidedly ''not'' PlayedForLaughs in ''{{Film/Memento}}'', where Leonard's anterograde amnesia drives the plot, and the movie's format.
