* ''GeneratorRex'': [[spoiler:Rex himself. Not much is known about the circumstances surrounding his amnesia, but one thing we ''do'' know is that his personality has changed between blackouts. For example, when he led a small gang of [=EVOs=] in Hong Kong, he was a backstabbing traitor, a far cry from the hero he currently is. It is unknown right now whether the Rex we see in the present is at all like the Rex from before his blackouts.]]

* An episode of TazMania has Bull Gator using hypnosis on his partner Axel so that he will think he's a tasmanian devil and gain Taz's trust, unfortunately for him it doesn't work on Axel and Bull ends up hypnotizing himself, he then teams up with Taz and Axel spends the rest of the episode trying to restore Bull's memory.

* ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' has a rather interesting case of this. [[spoiler: At the end of ep 8 it is revealed that Battler actually survived the Rokkenjima incident but lost his memory. He was then found by Ikuko Hachijo with whom he stayed with and adopted the name Toya Hachijo. He slowly regained his memory but interestingly even when his memory was fully back he still couldn't think about himself as Battler and so kept his new name.]]

Just like other forms of TV amnesia, this variety is often rectified by just smacking the character in the head a second time; they are usually very resistant to seeking out help on their own, as far as they're concerned, nothing is wrong.

Once their JekyllAndHyde nature has been demonstrated, it's a foregone conclusion that should the character in question get tapped in the head at a later date, the alternate persona will be [[SplitPersonalityTakeover right back in the saddle again.]]

Added DiffLines:

* More or less done in the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode "Bowser Junior Gets Rabies!". After [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin getting rabies from being bit by a squirrel]], Bowser Junior starts hallucinating and saying {{Non Sequitur}}s, until [[WhamShot Wham.]] Junior becomes a rabid foaming creature with no presence of his former identity who tries to bite anyone near him. That served, the rest of the episode has Chef Pee Pee and the Brooklyn Guy trying to cure Junior and restore his memory.

* In ''Literature/TheDinosaurLords'', mercenary lord Karyl loses all memory of who he is as a result of being whacked over the head with an axe and then spending several hours being carried downstream by cold waters. He's quickly brought up to speed by others, but doesn't regain his own memories.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': "I Dream of Cosmo" has Cosmo getting knocked on the ground after hiding in a genie lamp, and Timmy's dad makes him think that he is a "magic weenie" (which the latter says is "part-witch, part-genie") named Grant who is supposed to grant wishes for him. HilarityEnsues, with Cosmo and Mr. Turner's wishes causing shenanigans such as [[IncredibleShrinkingMan Timmy, Wanda and Poof being shrunken to the size of ants]], the Turner's house becoming the city dump, the Sun becoming closer to the Earth, and to top it all off, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Mr. Turner getting fired]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/{{K}}'', at first Shiro seems like he really is an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent, not the Colorless King who was caught on video murdering a Red Clansman, inciting the Red Clan to seek revenge. But half way through season 1, things start to indicate that Shiro's memories are actually false. He is without any knowledge of who he is from them until [[spoiler: episode 11, when he regains his memory - he is another king, forcibly [[GrandTheftMe body-swapped]] with the Colorless King.]]

* ''AyashiNoCeres''' Tooya is the victim of this trope. [[spoiler:A plot point, as he is later revealed to be the [[MacGuffinTurnedHuman personification of the highly-coveted hagoromo]].]]
* Averted in ''MahouSenseiNegima''. Although [[spoiler: Asuna Kagurazaka]] is shown to have a drastic shift in personality between her self-induced amnesia at the conclusion of the backstory and the kicking off of the plot (she went from EmotionlessGirl to a HotBlooded {{Tsundere}}), it is shown to have happened over the course of several years, implied to be the consequence of frequent interactions with a RichBitch {{Ojou}}.

[[EasyAmnesia Amnesia comes easy in fiction]]. It is also [[LaserGuidedAmnesia conveniently specific]]. A taste of AppliedPhlebotinum, a particularly shocking [[TraumaInducedAmnesia traumatic event]], or even a simple TapOnTheHead will be sufficient to make your character forget all about [[LossOfIdentity who]] or [[TheMasquerade what]] they are.

** SpongeBob himself gets a similar bonk and somehow ends up as the mayor of New Kelp City (the undersea Expy of NYC). This is not necessarily a good thing.
