* Trauma to the brain can induce amnesia in retrograde (the inability to remember some events prior to the blow) or anterograde (the inability to form new memories) form. Both are forms of time elapsing without people having any memory of it. Severe anterograde amnesia can result in missing time from the time of the event until whenever ''now'' is. If new memories can't be formed, then you just woke up in the hospital five minutes ago... forever. Seems like AndIMustScream to us, but the sufferer would never know.

* A comedic example in ''[[Siren2016 Siren]]'', the group are asked to pay for their [[VampiresOwnNightClubs night out]] with a memory, they close their eyes, the music swells... and Mr. Nyx cheerfully tells them it's done. Later, it's revealed that they were really out of it for a couple of minutes.

* Happens to Donna in an episode of ''Series/DoctorWho'' where she's stuck in a virtual reality. Though in her case, time really DOES jump, and people just tell her that it's her memory.



* ''Series/DoctorWho'': Unexplained skips are a frequently clue that a character has suffered memory alteration of some sort. It's particularly noticeable in Season 6 of the new series, when the Doctor and companions face off against the Silents, beings that erase your memory of them the instant you are no longer looking at them. This is played for copious ParanoiaFuel toward the end of the season, with characters abruptly realizing that they've moved, or fought, with no memory of having done so.

* In ''VisualNovel/NewDanganronpaV3'', the fourth chapter had everyone enter a virtual world. [[spoiler: Gonta Gokuhara]] ended up mixing up two wires they had to plug into their headset prior to logging in, and so experienced this when everyone logged out after [[spoiler: Miu Iruma]] was killed, having no memory of anything that happened while in the virtual world. They're very confused afterwards, especially when [[spoiler: Kokichi Ouma eventually reveals during the fourth trial that Gonta was the one who murdered Miu.]]

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flunitrazepam Rohypnol]] can cause anterograde amnesia, especially if combined with alcohol. Which can be annoying if one is taking it for insomnia and a serious hindrance to the police investigation if someone [[SlippingAMickey slipped it]] to them.

* Anya in ''CodeGeass'' suffers from this periodically, and has made it a habit of keeping a blog of pictures from her daily activities so she knows what she has been doing. This is revealed to be a result of [[spoiler:Marianne actively possessing her body, during which Anya has no memories]].
