A character gets others' memories or abilities through some external means, like magic or... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin ghosts]]. Compare with GeneticMemory, which uses genetics, reincarnation, and whatnot. Or FakeMemories, in which the implanted memory is totally made up. Contrast DeathAmnesia.

DeathAmnesia. Not to be confused with GhostAmnesia, which is when a ghost can not remember their own memories.

* ''VideoGame/BioShock1'' and ''VideoGame/SystemShock2'' have these as a result of each games AppliedPhlebotinum. While walking along, your character will occasionally see ghosts acting out what usually turn out to be their last moments alive.
** To be clear, it's revealed in an audio diary found near the beginning of "Arcadia" that [[spoiler:the visions are from the genetic memory of any person whose ADAM was extracted(by the Little Sisters) from their blood to be recycled after they died. Those who splice up with the ADAM(including the main characters, Jack and Subject Delta) end up getting some of these memories with it, experienced in the form of seeing such "ghosts".]] ''Franchise/BioShock''!

* ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive'': Ellen is an OppositeSexClone of another character, with all of his memories up until her creation. Then later Nioi showed up. Nioi claimed that since Ellen's [[OurSoulsAreDifferent soul]] was barely a couple months old, while she has the body and mind of a 17-year-old, she'll end up going insane. So Nioi "offers"[[note]]she doesn't actually wait for Ellen to agree, or explain it in enough detail for Ellen to fully consent[[/note]] to "fix" the problem. For the next few weeks, when she slept, Ellen dreamt of life in another world, where she was born a girl (not a clone of a guy) and grew up normally. She retained all the memories of this other life, down to her own [[{{Squick}} birth]]. It's so far caused her as much angst as relief.
