** Cerberus, a high-ranking member of Pluto, claims to one of prisoner guards keep watching on his cell he can re-read books without the book itself (he was blindfolded during this scene and he recites a quote from "Count of Monte Cristo" perfectly word by word) like a library, suggesting this ability. While said exchange and him reciting the quote is actually a preparation for his prison break, the fact that [[spoiler:he used to be in National Talent Development Research Institute]], a fact revealed much later, still supports this trope [[spoiler:as Megu was also a student there too]].
** Asaba Fuko, Megu's best friend during her days in National Talent Development Research Institute, claims she can remember any complicated musical scores in one read. No further elaboration is made but it's likely this talent is limited only to music.

** During ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', {{Superman}} lost his powers. One Year Later, he regained them and picked up a couple of new ones, including true photographic memory and superfast calculative processes (which he immediately uses in battle.) When the photographic memory first hits him, he can suddenly retroactively recall his entire life this way. UsefulNotes/{{The Silver Age|OfComicBooks}} and UsefulNotes/{{the Bronze Age|OfComicBooks}} Superman also had this power (AlanMoore once described his memory as being "vast enough to have every conceivable shape of snowflake precisely filed"), but the ComicBook/PostCrisis Superman did not, until this point.

* Feruchemists from ''{{Mistborn}}'' use their magical powers to achieve something very like this; they can store up personal qualities (strength, speed, quickness of thought, etc) in pieces of metal, and memories are among these- meaning that, essentially, a feruchemist can store a ''massive'' amount of information perfectly and indefinitely in their "metalminds", which can be drawn forth as needed. Sazed, the main feruchemist character, is a scholar who has a tremendous amount of information on almost every subject imaginiable memorized in this way; he's almost literally a walking library.

* Asagi from ''Manga/ThouShaltNotDie'' as super memory which is a power that allow him to remember everything he learned and saw and can foresee outcomes based on all the information he gathered even those he subconsciously gathered. In twisted joke, the power aged his brain and he suffers from dementia so while he remembers everything he'll just blank out mid conversation forgetting what he was talking about.

* Lesley and Gordon in the Brian Caswell novel ''A Cage of Butterflies'' both possess photographic memories that allow them to play chess without a chessboard. This may be the only nonviolent, memory-based, chess-related case of {{Bad Ass}}ery.
