* In ''Series/BabylonFive'' this is the Earth Alliance's version of the death penalty for civilians, the "Death of Personality". A machine suppresses all knowledge of one's past life, and the resulting blank shell is programmed to love serving others, so no
one feels conflicted about keeping them in a minimum security prison for life and making them do community service. In contrast to many fictional cases of EasyAmnesia, it can't be instantly, completely reversed, but it's relatively easy for a telepath to unblock ''some'' of the memories.

* Tsukasa, the lead character of ''Anime/DotHackSign'' begins the show with this, with the added bonus of being stuck inside an MMO where he can feel everything. The adult friends he (eventually) makes do what they can outside the game to learn his identity. Parts of his memory comes back in pieces as the show goes on such as his mother's love for black and white era western films to a shopping mall he used to go to. But the final revelation (that Bear actually figures out relatively early in the show but Tsukasa initially rejects as impossible) is that [[spoiler:Tsukasa was actually a girl in real life and her father abused her for the crime of not being a boy.]]
