* ''FanFic/AManOfIron'' gives this to greenseers, with Jojen Reed outright telling he rather prefers the current, modified timeline to the canon one and Rickon Stark being disturbed by the facts things are not unraveling like they are supposed to.

* In ''Film/{{Deadpool}}'', the titular character, due to his NoFourthWall nature, can remember everything that's happened in the ''Film/XMen'' films, even the stuff that was erased by {{Cosmic Retcon}}s.



* ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'':
** Wolverine is told up-front that he (and only he) will remember the BadFuture should he succeed in changing history. [[spoiler: In the end, he wakes up in the "good future" with his memories diverging from real history since it was changed in 1973.]]
** Professor X does have some memories of the original time line since his younger version linked to the original time line version through Logan. After Logan sees all the reset changes, Xavier tells him "they have a lot to talk about."

*** In "Out of Time", Barry accidentally goes so fast that he goes back in time to one day in the past. At first Barry is the only person who remembers the events of "Out of Time", until "The Trap" when it is revealed that [[spoiler: Cisco]] has dreams about the AlternateTimeline [[spoiler: in which Harrison Wells kills him. In the season finale it's further revealed that the reason why Cisco remembers this is because he is a metahuman.]]
*** As time travel becomes increasingly frequent in the series, Ripple Effect Proof Memory is usually the norm. The one exception is in the Season 3 premiere ''Flashpoint'' in which [[spoiler: Barry gradually starts to lose memories of his original timeline, the more he uses his speed in the Flashpoint timeline. Once the Flashpoint timeline is undone and a new CloseEnoughTimeline is established however, Barry retains his memories of the original Season 1/2 timeline and of the months he spent in the Flashpoint timeline, but doesn't remember the unfamiliar aspects of the new timeline, such as the death of Cisco's brother Dante or the new CSI Julian Albert whom he's supposedly been sharing a lab with for the past year]].
*** The Season 3 BigBad Dr. Alchemy has effectively weaponized Ripple Effect Proof Memory. [[spoiler: He has the ability to not only reawaken the memories of people's lives in the alternate Flashpoint timeline, but also restore the metahuman abilities they had in that timeline. This is actually revealed to be Savitar's doing, as Alchemy is merely his conduit to the real world (Savitar is trapped in the Speed Force)]].

** On ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'' the "Legends" exist mostly outside the time stream in their craft and are thus immune to changes that might happen to it. They can thus see such "aberrations" and fix them before they become permanent.

* ''Film/JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle'': [[spoiler:After the heroes win the game, they create a new timeline where everything is like Alex never disappeared from reality but Spencer, Fridge, Bethany and Martha retain their memories from the original timeline. In Alex's case, since it was a MentalTimeTravel, he remembers both timelines.]]

* In the Marvel mega-crossover event ''ComicBook/HouseOfM'', ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and a new character called Layla are able to remember the original timeline, how things were ''before'' the ComicBook/ScarletWitch rewrote history. Layla is a mutant with this (and the ability to undo time travel's effects on the memories of others) as her stated superpower. Strangely enough, Franchise/SpiderMan gets the feeling that things aren't quite right with the world and writes a journal detailing the events of the original timeline, but no reason is given for that. When the Scarlet Witch changes everything back, Spider-Man still remembers the House of M reality and nearly kills ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}, furious about what he remembered having "lost" (a world where Uncle Ben never died, and Peter had started a family with Gwen Stacy).

** Wolverine actually ended up remembering ''more'' of the original timeline than he ever had before, as an unintended side-effect of Scarlet Witch's spell. She rewrote reality to give the people she cared about whatever they most desired and, for Wolverine, that meant remembering the entirety of his LaserGuidedAmnesia-filled, [[TheFogOfAges Fog of Ages]]-shrouded MysteriousPast.

*** Averted in "[[Recap/LegendsOfTomorrowS3E4PhoneHome Phone Home]]", where Ray vanishes off the bridge of the ''Waverider'', when his past self is killed in 1988. Ray reappears as soon as the ship travels to the day before young Ray's death, as the events haven't yet solidified to make themselves permanent.

Ray reappears as soon as the ship travels to the day before young Ray's death, as the events haven't yet solidified to make themselves permanent. Ray's own memories remain unaffected, despite his younger self experiencing multiple changes, including meeting his future self (although Adult!Ray never actually tells him who he is, but the Atom suit might have served as Young!Ray's inspiration to create it in the future). In addition, there appear to be no records of [[spoiler:the Dominators coming to Earth between TheFifties and TheNewTens, but it's clearly stated that the Dominator Queen came in a timeship, so the past did change slightly. Besides, Agent Smith isn't likely to leave any records of his failure]].

* In ''Series/ElMinisterioDelTiempo'', the Ministry is able to detect people attempting to change history, and act accordingly. However, when history is changed successfully, only some people remember the initial sequel of events - and the bigger the change, the smaller the number of people that remember. For example, in "Cambio de tiempo", after King Philip II of Spain takes over the Ministry by force in order to ensure the Armada Invencible wins against the British and then ensuring the Spanish Empire never falls, only Alonso, Amelia and Julián remember, as they were on a mission when the events changed.



* In ''Series/Misfits'' Curtis has the ability to reverse time when experiencing feelings of deep regret to a point that he could change events with the knowledge of what's to happen gained.

* Speaking of SaveScumming, this is a prominent gameplay feature of ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' in which mousy every girl Max Caulfield is given time manipulation powers. Screw up a conversation with a classmate? Go back to before you talked to them with the new information you gained from the previous timeline and see how well they respond to Max this time. In fact, quite a few of her peers will comment on how Max seems to be on fire this week as the game progresses.

** Max's powers later expand to include MentalTimeTravel into photos of herself, allowing her to alter events ''years'' in the past. After a minute or two in the confines of the photo, however, she returns to the altered present with no way of knowing how much has changed.
