* In ''Series/DoubutsuSentaiZyuohger'', Bunglay has the ability to read people's memories and create copies of living things from them. This power is often used to resurrect previously-defeated [[MonsterOfTheWeek Dethgaliens]], but it's occasionally been used to copy humans as well. The copies are not necessarily evil, but even if they believe themselves to be the real thing, they tend to play into the villain's plans anyway.

* The past avatars in ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'' are Living Memories to their future incarnations, and when the current avatar dies they join the ranks of past avatars.

** 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.]]

* 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]].
