* The first log you find in ''VideoGame/SystemShock'' is this, from just before you went in to get a military-grade neural implant, which requires a six-month-long healing coma. You, having freed [[AiIsACrapshoot SHODAN]] of her ethical restraints by Edward Diego's request, acknowledge that [[WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong you don't know what'll happen after that]], and leave yourself some tools and reminders for when you wake up.
* The first ''VideoGame/DeepSleep'' game includes a note from "yourself", reminding you that you're dreaming and hopes that you have lucid control over said dream. The third game has a similar note left for [[spoiler: a clown named Bert who followed you to the bottom layer.]]

* The [[ManipulativeBastard Practical Incarnation]] in ''PlanescapeTorment'', upon learning that he would lose his memory upon death, set up several contingency plans (including keeping a journal and tattooing his own back with instructions) to make sure that future incarnations would be able to follow in his footsteps and finish his work. Unfortunately for both of you, by the time the current incarnation of the Nameless One comes around, some of the incarnations who've lived in-between (amongst them the Paranoid Incarnation) have ruined most of them.

* At one point in ''Webcomic/SchlockMercenary'', when the entire crew was undergoing forced memory rewrites, Schlock used the properties of his BizarreAlienBiology to store his real memories of the encounter inside a bit of himself, which he protected from the rewrite by shoving it inside one of his extra eyeballs. Schlock was smart enough to realize that he couldn't actually get the crew to remember what really happened--such an effort would most likely lead to them getting killed. Instead, he just made sure to tell himself to kill the bastard who did it to them.

First, Old Joe pins a paper note on an unconscious Young Joe's jacket, warning him to [[spoiler: skip town before the mob figures out he didn't kill his older self.]] Later, Young Joe carves the name of his favorite waitress ''into his arm.'' Old Joe reads the scars that appear on his arm and meets his younger self at the diner.
