** [[RedHeadedHero Ben Skywalker]] (son of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade) also has a photographic memory; this is first mentioned and utilized in ''[[Literature/LegacyOfTheForce Sacrifice]]'', and again in ''[[FateOfTheJedi Abyss]]'', but it's easily missed, since most writers tend to gloss over it or not mention it at all.

* ''TheExecutioner''. {{Vigilante}} Mack Bolan has an eidetic memory, which proves useful when he's infiltrating a mob family -- he can relate a minor detail about someone's life to convince them they've met before (as the more [[ProfessionalKiller elite mob killers]] use plastic surgery it doesn't seem strange that Bolan's face is unfamiliar).

** The titular character of "Literature/StarmanJones" has this. No one told him not to, so he read his uncle's astrogation books, from which he learned the calculus. He also happened to memorize every logarithm table and every table converting numbers into binary. Another character marvels at not being able to forget anything. "I've been able to forget a lot of things, thank Heaven."
