* This is how the AkashicRecords work in ''TabletopGame/{{Pathfinder}}.'' As a metaphysical record of all events, recorded automatically as they happen, visitors can select moments to experience in flawless clarity, free of personal bias and perception. This allows these flashbacks for clear retrospection.

* The nameless protagonist of ''Webcomic/[[HERO}}'', when he picks up a compass containing a memory, experiences one of these -- though he experiences it in first person, the only thing he can do that deviates from the memory is to think, [[spoiler:and technically, it's Eira's memory.]]
* This happens to Skye in ''Webcomic/{{Alternate}}'', accompanied by his [[TheConscience conscience]] Dominique.
* 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.
* The dream bubbles in ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}''. They act both as the dream world and the afterlife, and are composed of the memories of the dreaming/dead people. The main twist is, originally when dreaming the character's memory is retold verbatim, but once they realize it isn't a memory they are free to manipulate stuff at their will.

* A rather interesting case occurs in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' as a crucial part of game's story. The heroine Tifa enters the catatonic hero Cloud's mind and helps him sort through his muddled memories. Together, she and Cloud (his subconsciousness, really) go over experiences they shared in the past to determine what memories were real, which were invented, and which were implanted.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' also uses this for the orphanage revelation.
* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX'' had three variations:
** The pyreflies can form visions of people or events when there are enough of them, such as in the Farplane or especially [[spoiler:Zanarkand Dome]], where you see visions of [[spoiler:Jecht, Auron, and Braska]].
** When you reach Zanarkand and find out that [[spoiler:Zanarkand is the Fayth's dreams of their memories of the old city, making it one big PensieveFlashback that carried on where the real city left off when it was destroyed]].
* The Memory Maze in ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 2}}'', which had [[spoiler: the Sword Magess, Anastasia]] guiding Ashley through her memories.
* ''Videogame/StarOceanTheSecondStory'' did this while going through the four fields on Disk 2

* The Magical Congress of the United States in ''Film/FantasticBeastsAndWhereToFindThem'' uses magic that resemble the Pensieve from ''Literature/HarryPotter'' (they are in the same universe, after all) as part of their execution process. The person to be executed has their memories extracted from their brains and put into a pool, which displays their fondest memories in order to keep them calm enough to allow the execution to go off without a hitch.



** Tom Riddle's diary from ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' book also does this.

* An episode of {{Chowder}} has this be the solution to Mung's teacher telling everyone awful stories about him. They make him tell the story, then jump into his flashback to alter the past. It works flawlessly...except that Chowder decided to grab his past self and pull him to the present...

* Played with in ''Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar''. The audience is shown a flashback to Tony Stark's last conversation with his parents before their deaths, at the end of which the adult Tony is visible watching from a doorway -- then there's a ProsceniumReveal and it turns out that Tony is physically present in a holodeck simulation based on his memories.
