** After the events of up to Season 10, Epsilon developed a habit of simulating the other Alpha fragments from his own memories of them, long after the original fragments are destroyed. He splits up different tasks between them during battle. Though they act more or less the same as their original counterparts, they are aware of just being Epsilon's memories, as the second Delta is quick to remind Epsilon of. [[spoiler:In the Season 13 finale, Epsilon concludes that he doesn't have the processing power to help his friends out of a tight spot, and decides that his main "Church" self is just holding him back too much. [[DeathOfPersonality He intends to erase this main self]] and [[HeroicSacrifice give his memory buddies enough strength to save the day for him.]]

* Most smart [=AI=]s in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' are [[BrainUploading created from the brains]] of dead people (as the process usually destroys the brain), but Cortana is the product of a cloned mind rather than a dead one. She and her creator, Dr. Halsey, often share many of the same attributes and opinions, especially regarding the Master Chief, John-117.
** Forerunner AI [[spoiler:343 Guilty Spark]] was copied off the mind of [[spoiler:a prehistoric human named Chakas]].

* In the works of Creator/TimPowers, particularly the novel ''Literature/ExpirationDate'', all ghosts are psychic echoes created during traumatic events. If the person survives, the ghost merges back into their psyche, but if they die, the ghost is left hanging around.

* Mal in ''{{Inception}}'' is literally Cobb's memory of his dead wife which has taken on a life of its own (her own?) in his dreams and any other dreams he enters. Said life generally involves sabotaging whatever Cobb's trying to do, in an attempt to make him [[spoiler: commit suicide like she did, thinking that she was still dreaming and unable to wake up. The reason this particular memory is so powerful is the guilt Cobb feels for accidentally driving his wife to suicide.]]

* Not a character but still effectively this trope, in the ''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.

* Ghosts in ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' are defined as echoes of a person's dying moments -- they don't know they're dead because they can't realize they're dead. Harry himself gets an eyeful of this in ''Blood Rites'' when [[spoiler: a meeting with his unknown half-brother results in a pre-recorded vision of his dead mother]].

* The Living memory is inside another character's head due to side effects from a MentalFusion. A good chunk of the SplitPersonality tropes may apply, for good and ill.

* The ''[[RedVsBlue Red vs. Blue]] Recollections'' trilogy focuses on the Alpha [=AI=], a smart [=AI=] created from the brain of the Director of Project Freelancer, in the same vein as those featured in ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' (see above example). Because of the various experiments in torture performed on it, the Alpha was forced to separate its worst memories from itself, creating yet another [=AI=] that contains all of the Director's ''and'' the Alpha's most anguished memories. Meanwhile, the Alpha (who caused IdentityAmnesia through its actions) ended up reliving much of the same life events (read: failures, most notably the frustration generated by pursuing a lost love) that defined the Director's life. The final series in the trilogy, ''Revelation'', reveals that [[spoiler:this process is a cycle, wherein the new [=AI=] will follow in the Alpha's footsteps and eventually fragment off those memories into yet another [=AI=], which will fragment the memories again into another [=AI=], ad nauseum. The Epsilon [=AI=], the last in the chain thus far, believes it has finally figured out how to break the cycle.]]
