** An even more straightforward example comes in the form of [[spoiler:Charlotte Pudding]], who ate the Memory-Memory Fruit. This fruit allows the user to pull memories out from someone's head in the form of a strip of film and perform edits on them. The first use seen had our user take a pair of scissors and cut out memories from [[spoiler:Reiju that she could've used to inconvenience Pudding later on. Reiju ''does'' notice a gap in her memories when she comes to, and Sanji, who had witnessed that point in time in secret, fills Reiju in on what happened.]]

* In the sequel to ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'', Haise Sasaki has little memory of the first twenty years of his life. He claims to have little interest in regaining his memories, and insists that [[StepfordSmiler he's very happy]] with the life that [[TheHunter CCG]] has given him. [[spoiler: As suspected, at the finale of the original series, the organization captured a critically-wounded Ken Kaneki and erased all record of his existence. It isn't clear how much of his amnesia resulted from psychological trauma, brainwashing, or Arima driving his spear through Kaneki's [[EyeScream skull]] twice]].

* Done very literally in ''VampireKnight'' [[spoiler:Kaname uses his vampire powers to wipe out Yuki's memories of Maria being in fact Hio, the vampire responsible for the slaughtering of Zero's family. It does not last long, though, as the effects are almost immediately canceled by Hio herself.]]

* ''VideoGame/FallenLondon'' has Lethean Tea-Leaves, which will reset your character's Ambition and let you pursue a different one. Normally you [[BribingYourWayToVictory buy these with Fate]], but if you pursue the "Light Fingers" Ambition, one of your major antagonists will give you a serving as your LastChanceToQuit, with the caveat that if you don't and he catches you fooling around in his business, you'll be BuriedAlive. (He can't just kill you because [[DeathIsCheap you'd just get better]].) If you don't take this offer, [[ChekhovsGun the leaves find another use]] when a kidnap victim has been brainwashed into loving her prison...
