* 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]].

** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/a-man-at-the-top-of-his-profession One "tale" horrifically subverts this]], in that "Class A amnestics" are just what agents put down on reports to make themselves feel better. The actual memory loss is caused by a TortureTechnician via MindRape and beating witnesses until they [[TraumaInducedAmnesia no longer remember what happened]]. Thankfully, the not-quite-canon nature of the SCP tales lets you decide whether this is true or not.

* ''Anime/DigimonSavers'' has DATS, an organization responsible for keeping Digimon a secret from normal people. Memory-wiping via a neutralizer-type device is how they deal with any potential witnesses.

* ''{{UFO}}''. The SHADO organization captures people who see real [=UFO=]s and has its medical department use a drug to erase their recent memories, thus preventing the public from learning about UFO attacks.
* ''TheTroop'' has a little alien whose song causes short-term memory loss so they can cover breaches of TheMasquerade. However, ordinary ear plugs can protect one from the effect.
