* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' plays with this as Professor Farnsworth tells the story of the original Planet Express crew to the current crew, on the 50th anniversary of the original crew's disappearance in the episode, "Möbius Dick". We see the events, including a younger Zoidberg with hair. Amy is incredulous that he had hair, to which the Professor responds, "I never said he had hair! If you chose to imagine him that way, that's your business!" As he finishes the story, we see Zoidberg's hair turned white. Amy comments on this, to which the professor tells her he grew hair and it turned white from the shock.

* The Demon King of LightNovel/MaoyuuMaouYuusha is GenreSavvy and able to use memory-projecting lamps to great effect. Of course, they're a bit too easy to use, so sometimes HilarityEnsues...

[[spoiler: Cue the Hero finding out she keeps a body pillow version of him for KissingWarmUp, incidentally revealing she's known what he looks like for a long time before they first met.]] More on point, the Demon King is able to use the Hero's memories to [[spoiler: point out some economic implications he'd never considered about how the different nations handle war time]] as well as share scenes from a dream [[spoiler: of peace that she holds close to her heart.]]

* The movie ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' is mostly this. Although it isn't always pensive, and is a "flashback" to an alternative history.

* ''Manga/TwentiethCenturyBoys'': The [[{{Cyberspace}} Bonus Stage]] in Friend Land is effectively a PensieveFlashback to [[spoiler:the area and time period Kenji and his classmates grew up in]], albeit one where you can interact with the virtual people [[spoiler:and certain details are missing.]] This is played with in at least one scene where what appeared to be a genuine flashback only the audience sees [[TomatoSurprise is really just another visit to Bonus Stage]].

* In ''Webcomic/{{Juathuur}}'', Arvval and Faevv watch this way Faerun's [[spoiler: disappereance.]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Blip}}'', Liz's portion of the RashomonStyle flashback involves Hester and Mary stepping directly into her memory. ("This is cool, right? [[LampshadeHanging Just like in]] ''Literature/HarryPotter.''") Memory!Liz within the flashback acts as the mouthpiece for modern-day Liz, and Hester (briefly forgetting that these are not actual events) punches one of the memories.
