* In the ''Franchies/MassEffect'' fic ''Fanfic/Project Delta'', Jane is implanted with some augments on which the past cycles worked like on the Crucible. She somehow gets the pain and vague memories of all the past augmented.

** The extinct Ayleids (Wild Elves) had memory crystals which could store memories and release them to the user. Overuse of these crystals was said to cause a "problem of capacity" for mortal minds.

*** Such a memory stone shows up in an ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsOnline'' quest which allows one to witness the final days of the legendary Redguard hero, Gaiden Shinji, prior to his death via CavalryBetrayal during the siege of Orsinium.

** The extinct [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwemer]] counted among their many [[LostTechnology technological achievements]] a machine which could safely read an [[TomeOfEldritchLore Elder Scroll]] and imprint the information gained from it on a special cube where it could be more-safely accessed.

("More-safely" is a relative term, as the cubes have still been known to drive non-Dwemer mad.)



In ''VideoGame/MassEffect'', if Shepard does a certain quest early in the game, they receive a small and apparently useless Prothean device as a reward. Much later while exploring an alien planet, they can find a Prothean artifact that will react with the device, uploading several years worth of memory from an ancient human that the Protheans had been studying into Shepard's brain. The Beacon encountered on Eden Prime also worked in this way, but due to its damaged state the images it uploaded were indistinct and required Shepard to find several other parts before they made sense.

* This trope affects Chromedome in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye'' as a ''severe'' side effect of his [[MindMeld mnemosurgery abilities]]. The thing is, he can [[InterrogatingTheDead read the memories of the dead]], but the side effect of that is that by reading their memories, he also ends up experiencing them, which is in turn [[TransferableMemory recorded in his memory from his perspective]]. The big problem with that is that ''he now knows how it feels to die,'' repeatedly, innumerable times, and in innumerable ways. They have become literal NightmareFuel for him, in that [[BadDreams these memories torment him irregularly and unexpectedly]] while he recharges until he [[CatapultNightmare flings himself awake in a terror]]. It's little wonder he was DrivenToSuicide (though fortunately [[HappilyFailedSuicide he never went through with it]]).

To make it even worse, it's revealed that mnemosurgery is addictive and eventually kills its practitioners.
