* In ''Manga/HistorysStrongestDiscipleKenichi'', Elder Furinji has a technique called, 'Shockwave of Forgetfulness', a soft punch that can cause the victim to lose his memory. He did it once on a crimelord in Thailand to make him forget he was evil, and again on Kenichi- to make ''him'' forget about the really expensive drawing Elder bought, which he was going to tell Miu about.

** In "Six Minus Six" Agent Six loses six years of memory saving Rex from a machine that was going to delete Rex's instead (because Rex apparently goes crazy if he resets, and if that happens Six has to kill him). It was never fixed via ResetButton. That means not only does he not remember Rex, Holiday or Bobo, but he doesn't even rememeber the Event that caused the [=EVOs=] (heck, he barely knows what an EVO is). He only stayed with Providence and trying to be the man he used to be because of Rex's unwavering trust him, even as he was six years ago (an unrepentant, mercenary JerkAss).

* ''{{Series/PainkillerJane}}'': Episode 3, "Piece of Mind", focuses on a [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual neuro]] who can remove specific memories from people, simply by touching them. Other people can [[NeuralImplanting gain the memories]] the same way-a homeless man gets a surgeon's memories simply by brushing against the neuro's arm.
