* ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry'': Shinji and Asuka returned to the past to avert the end of the world. They manage to save the world and ''[[Webcomic/AkiChansLife rewrite the timeline]]'', but their [[spoiler:and their daughter Aki's]] memories of the original events and the post-Impact world remain intact.

** Heroes of Time serve the purpose of fixing the timeline whenever someone does something that screws up the delicate balance of time-travel and closed loops that make Sburb and the entire universe capable of existing. These timelines where people fail, called "doomed timelines", invariably end with the eventual death of the people in them, meaning that the Hero of Time often sees themself dying over and over again, all for the sake of their alternate selves taking the fall for their own mistakes. This oversaturation of death's effect on the psyche is played horrifyingly straight in-comic, with all Time characters disturbed in some way by how disposable they are and how they could be the one that's doomed to screw up.

* In ''Literature/ThreeDaysToNever'', a man travels into the past to set right an event that destroyed his family and his happiness. The instigating event is averted, and the timeline changed, but he can't bring himself to believe it because he still remembers it, and keeps trying by increasingly extreme methods to fix what has already been fixed.

* Agent J has a ripple effect-proof memory in ''Film/MenInBlack 3''. The actual mechanics of the effect in question are explained: you're immune to any changes in the timeline generated by alterations to an event which you were personally present at[[note]] so long as you survived the altered event[[/note]]. There are also specific symptoms of the effect: you get a headache and an inexplicable craving for "chocolatized dairy products".

* Archie from ''WesternAnimation/ArchiesWeirdMysteries'' gains this temporarily due to being rendered "out of sync" from the timeline after field-testing Dilton's experimental [[TimeMachine Chrono-Field Generator]]. Good thing too, since this week's villain managed to swipe Dilton's perfected model and is repeatedly resetting time to rob a bank, an act which could result in TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt and nobody except Archie is able to even notice.

* SaveScumming is this in the {{Meta}} sense. You bungle a game, "go back in time", and with your knowledge of what you did wrong you can do something else. Some games try to avert this, such as ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' where save scumming unleashes [[TheScrappy Reseti]] and forces you to listen to his long scolding, while ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'' [[spoiler:has ''other'' characters who remember when you save scum. See below.]]
