* ''VisualNovel/NineHoursNinePersonsNineDoors'': You wake up in an early 20th century 3rd class cabin, in a flooding ship, [[spoiler: actually, a recreation of a flooding ship,]] and must escape in under 9 hours (through a mysterious "Nonary Game"), after which the floodgates will reopen and the ship will do its submarine impression.
** The same goes for the sequel, ''VisualNovel/VirtuesLastReward''. You wake up in a mysterious facility, which turns out to be [[spoiler: a base on the moon]], and are forced to play the "Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition" in order to escape.
** ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', the last game of the trilogy, appears to be following the trend. You wake up imprisoned in another underground facility, and are forced to play yet another deadly game. However, this game takes place before VLR chronologically, and the setup suggests that only three people can escape alive. Yet ''four'' of the participants in this game appear in VLR, and a fifth is confirmed to survive by WordOfGod. How this is possible remains a mystery.

Also, while most of the characters do know how they got to the facility this time, some of the details aren't revealed to the player until much later, and (as in the previous installments) there's one character who has no prior memories at all.

* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] and [[PlayingWithATrope played with]] in ''FanFic/TheRWBYLoops'' thoroughly. Due to the nature of the loops, the characters themselves know nothing firm about their pasts that WebAnimation/{{RWBY}} fans wouldn't know; this has a number of results, especially when the core series reveals some new factoid about their past, and feeds into the plot repeatedly.

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' has a variation; the life and upbringing of PlayerCharacter Aloy by ParentalSubstitute Rost is shown in detail from the start, but Aloy has some big questions about how she ended up under Rost's guardianship in apparent contravention of her tribe's customs, and the players have a ''really'' big question: ''why the hell is Earth inhabited by primitive humans and robot dinosaurs?'' Answering these questions is one of the major focuses of the game.
