Very often overlaps with MacGuffinGirl, since a character like this will often become a point of conflict due to the knowledge they have. If they are instead (or also) part of the FiveManBand, they will be TheSmartGuy. If the Human Hard Drive bears the burden of exposition, this trope may overlap with both MrExposition and {{Expositron 9000}}, simultaneously.

* The ''NewAvengers'' episode "The Three-Handed Game" featured three agents with perfect memory. Each of them was shown one-third of a secret message and was sent to deliver it via a different route, so that in theory nobody could intercept the entire message. (Come to think of it, kinda like the way data packets work on the internet.) Of course the bad guy figured out a way.

* Mr Memory, in the Creator/AlfredHitchcock film ''Literature/TheThirtyNineSteps'', is a man with perfect memory who travels around the world answering trivia questions from the audience. He is also the "39 Steps" organization's human database and file cabinet. He knows every last detail reported to him and is able to recite it instantly at will. He's used to smuggle stolen governmental and military information between international borders, as no amount of searching by security can find the stolen documents.

* The organization of Keepers in ''Literature/MistbornTheOriginalTrilogy'' have learned to store memories in copper, which they can use to store centuries of history, so that when the Lord Emperor is killed, they can share what was lost.

* The title character of ''{{Chuck}}'' (a.k.a. "The Intersect"). He gets CIA and NSA information embedded in his head, necessitating one agent from each to protect him. Of course, he can use the combined intelligence to figure out scenarios that each agency wouldn't on its own.

* As an Emergency Medical Hologram (EMH), the Doctor from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' was made specifically to contain all the knowledge of Starfleet medical officers. The EMH also appears in ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Film/StarTrekFirstContact'', but on Voyager he becomes a necessary part of the crew and comes to be treated as a person. An interesting reversal of the usual process: "hard drive" first, "human" later.
