* ''Roleplay/NanQuest'''s ending resets the timeline, resulting in Nan and the other survivors, [[spoiler:Santiago and Kim,]] being snapped back to the year Nan entered the hotel (2009). All three of them remember the events that took place in the hotel [[EldritchLocation outside of time and space]], despite it now being entirely impossible, and [[spoiler:both Kim and Santiago being children again. Kim gets to go home with her mother, and Nan adopts Santiago, for a more or less HappyEnding.]]

** The seeress Paddra Nsu-Yeul can also remember each altered timeline they see. [[spoiler:Turns out this is the same reason Serah still remembers a present where Lightning was with everyone after the battle with Orphan, despite the paradox replacing that with a Lightning-less version.]]

** 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".
