* Played with in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. The people who put Link in the [[HealingVat Shrine of Resurrection]] fully anticipated that he would lose many of his memories during his slumber, so they took steps to ensure both that he would be pointed back on the path of defeating Ganon (e.g. Zelda contacting him telepathically when he wakes up) and that he could regain his other memories (recovering the photos on the Sheikah Slate).

* In the latter half of ''ScrappedPrincess'', Pacifica loses her memory due to a combination of physical and mental trauma, and settles down in the area under the care of a young man who resembles her adoptive brother. One gets the sense over the next couple episodes that she doesn't ''want'' to remember she's running for her life.

* [[spoiler:Asuna]] of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' did this to herself ''intentionally'' because she [[IJustWantToBeNormal just wanted to be normal]], and she knew that would never happen if she could remember being a magical princess. Subverted when she manages to end up back in the thick of things ''anyway'', [[AlwaysNeedWhatYouGaveUp now without memory of important details that would now be kinda helpful]]. Then the [[TheDragon Dragon]] forcibly undid the amnesia, and caused her a massive HeroicBSOD.
