Added DiffLines:

* In ''VisualNovel/TheHouseInFataMorgana'', the viewpoint character starts off in the titular house not knowing who they are or how they got there. This acts as a FramingDevice for the first half of the story as the maid of the house shows them various stories from the house's history hoping to jog their memory.

Added DiffLines:

* Happens to Bender in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}''. He's hiding out in a flock of penguins and gets knocked out. When he reboots, his initialization routines apparently set his personality according to his surroundings, so he starts acting like a penguin. Later on, he gets knocked out again and reboots with Fry and Leela standing over him, which switches him back to the Bender we all know and love.
