* [[Manga/YuGiOh Bakura]] places a piece of his soul inside the Millennium Puzzle, allowing him to follow the rest of the cast in a rare villainous example played straight. This splits off into EpilepticTrees when you learn that [[spoiler:Yami!Bakura is a bizarre fusion of Present!Bakura, the original Thief King!Bakura, and Zorc, living embodiment of all darkness, complete with [[WebVideoYuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries his dragon willy.]]]]

* The above picture is aptly named "Memory of Alessa", a boss in ''SilentHill3''. She tries to kill Heather, who is basically her reincarnation, in order to help her avoid the pain and horror of birthing an EldritchAbomination.

The Living Memory is a very strange "being" and similar to [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghosts]] in a lot of ways. Physically they're usually [[IntangibleMan intangible]] (though YourMindMakesItReal can make them dangerous regardless), but some are in physical (though probably non-human) bodies. They may be fully sapient and can be reasoned with, a chunk of memories with a bit of personality, or just vinyl records on an endless loop. What they all have in common is that they are not the real deal, the original, just an [[UncannyValley eerie simulacrum]]... and [[TearJerker some]] even [[WhatHaveIBecome realize it.]]

The flesh is weak compared to the mind, heart and soul, especially when in the [[HotBlooded throes of passionate emotion]]. Some places are especially malleable to psychic phenomena. Combine the two and you have the LivingMemory, an echo of a person who either is still alive or has [[KilledOffForReal definitively]] gone on to a final reward (or punishment).

* In ''[[WorldOfWarcraft World of Warcraft]] Wrath of the Lich King'' Argent Confessor Paletress summons a "memory" of an enemy the players previously defeated.[[labelnote:Examples]] This includes Edwin VanCleef, Lady Vashj, Onyxia, [[MemeticBadass Hogger]], Archimonde, and Illidan Stormrage.[[/labelnote]] The spell description for her ability implies these are the player's darkest memories, though they are nowhere near as strong as when previously faced.

* Cody, from ''Film/GhostFromTheMachine'' at least thinks the ghosts conjured by his machine are this, chewing out his neighbor for LovingAShadow after stealing it so he can cowxist with his dead wife.

* Not a character but still effectively this trope, in the ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' the character Osseric is pulled in the a living memory of the Raraku desert by his father. The memory goes so far back into prehistoric times back to when Raraku was a lush swamp.

** In ''Literature/TheCrippledGod'', [[HeroicAlbino Silchas Ruin]] stubles into a corner of the chaos between realms in which realms fold one upon another to such a degree that it leaves a stain on time itself. There he finds the reflections of gods whose mortal bodies are walking various realms. These reflections retain their originals' memories and personalities, but have taken on lives of their own, including planning to murder [[BigBad the Crippled God]] to siphon his power.

* In ''[[WorldOfWarcraft World of Warcraft]]'' WOTLK there is an encounter during the 5-man instance Trial of the Champion where you are up against Argent Confessor Paletress, who will summon one of various ghost-like “memories” of previous foes the player characters have (or should have) defeated in the past, who must now be faced once again. These memories include famous antagonists such as, Edwin VanCleef, Lady Vashj, Onyxia, Hogger, Archimonde, and Illidan Stormrage, among several others who have a chance to spawn. It also may be worth noting that the flavor text of the spell Confess, which Paletress uses to summon them, states that it forces the target to confess their darkest memories, implying that the spell draws from the memories of the PC to summon a Living Memory of one of their toughest foes, so it probably qualifies for this trope. Suffice to say, as a 5-man instance these memories are not nearly as menacing as their living counterparts once were at the time of their original defeat.
