** In the Paperinik (Donald's superhero alter ego) stories, Paperinik has candies that wipe memories, normally slipped to people who have somehow found out Paperinik's SecretIdentity (notably, the first known victim is the candies' own inventor Gyro, who ''took them willingly'' upon being told by Donald. Other stories in which Paperinik has to tell him always end with him wiping out his memory once again). The candies also reappeared in ''ComicBook/PaperinikNewAdventures'', when Angus has stumbled on the secret of the Ducklair Tower and is slipped one after he tells the other journalists the admittedly ridiculous ending.

*** The candies also exist in a form that also acts as a sleeping agent, and a powder that acts as the second type ([[ProperlyParanoid first used when some scammers found out and were too smart to take the normal candies but not to not open the pocket that sprayed the powder on their faces]]). They must also be preserved well, or may have unintended effects (such as the time Daisy found out the secret and was slipped damaged candies, and [[TearJerker forgot about Donald but remembered that Paperinik was her boyfriend]]). Emotional shock and blunt trauma have occasionally allowed a partial recovery.



** In ''ComicBook/DoubleDuck'' the Agency has the Total Reset Button, a treatment that erases someone's memory of something that is used on former members that quit (they also make them record a video message to prove their identity and that they were paid for their job in case they must recall them in service) or people who know too much. The Agency can reverse it, but it's a difficult procedure that doesn't guarantee full results.

* [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots The Wolkenritter]] of ''Anime/MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha'' appeared to have been programmed to forget [[OmnicidalManiac what really happened]] whenever the [[ArtifactOfDeath Book of Darkness]] filled all [[NumberOfTheBeast 666 pages]]. This gap in their memories greatly disturbed Vita when she realized that she couldn't remember what became of their previous masters.

* In ''Literature/TheGirlFromTheMiraclesDistrict'', someone has wiped out Robin's memories of his identity and his past, as well as his supernatural abilities (he doesn't know he has HealingFactor, for example), leaving only a few spots [[spoiler:that for the most part turn out to be fake memories implanted to keep him stable]].

* Averted in an episode of ''Series/DrakeAndJosh'', where the titular duo try to enlist an anterograde amnesiac in their scheme. However, the amnesiac can barely remember things that happened a few seconds ago, prompting exchanges of "And you are? And you are? And I am? Who are you?" [[TheyJustDidntCare At the end of the episode, a tackle knocks all the lost decades of memory back into the amnesiac's head.]]

* There was once an English [[UsefulNotes/TheBeautifulGame footballer]] named Mills who spent the night in his rival player's house after getting hit on the head. He very specifically couldn't remember the events of the match in which the accident happened... or what team he played for. Everything else was absolutely fine. Fortunately, this didn't last long.

*** Demise was going to die by drawing the Black Queen, [[spoiler: but was saved by the experimental Trump cure, although this resulted in a [[CameBackWrong rather unusual Wild Card]]. Demise's Ace now includes very limited projecting telepathy - he can project the memories of death to stun, shock or kill.]] Similarly to Roulette, the Astronomer offers Demise to wipe those memories as a severance pay of sorts - this would make Demise a much happier and much less dangerous Ace.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/PhantomDust''. Characters affected by memory-destroying dust don't remember their names or anything about themselves, but data logs reveal they also often forget more common knowledge, such as the fact that plants need sunlight to grow.
