to:

* The Psyche Master in ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' uses his mental powers to erase Empath of his infantile memories when he was first admitted to Psychelia as a child to keep himself from remembering Papa Smurf as [[spoiler:his actual biological father]]. This, however, fails, as the Psyche Master still leaves in Empath's mind the memory of those last seconds leading up to the erasure, which he considers to be more of a MindRape.

* A typically dark example from ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Since admitting the existence of an elite army of {{demon slayer}}s would be admitting that there are such things as demons, the Imperium treats the GreyKnights as a state secret enforced by specially-trained psykers. Other {{space marine}}s who fight alongside them go through a lengthy memory-scrubbing afterwards, while Imperial Guardsmen who distinguish themselves are subjected to a hasty process that is both painful and often fatal. [[HeKnowsTooMuch Everyone else is just executed]]. An especially notable example was after the first war for Armageddon; after the invasion was driven off, the entire population of the planet was sterilized and worked to death in concentration camps.

* In ''[[Literature/NightWatch Sixth Watch]]'', the characters wonder how extremely important information about the origins and true nature of the [[DifferentlyPoweredIndividual Others]] could have been hidden or forgotten. [[spoiler:It was the Great Others themselves, who have wiped their own and others' memories in order to keep that knowledge from interfering with their plans for a perfect world. One, a witch, has managed to retain the memories by imparting them onto an artifact. Her memories were restored as soon as she touched it]].
