** Princess Luna's earliest memory is a sweet gentle voice who may or may not be her mother. The next is of her and Celestia as children being found and raised by a foster family.

[[spoiler:This is because they don't have parents. They were newly created by Harmony when they were found. So in reality, she has NoInfantileAmnesia.]]

* PlayedForLaughs in ''WebVideo/FalloutNukaBreak''. Ben, a ghoul, has trouble remembering things from before the bombs fell over 200 years ago. One thing that does stick in his mind, however, is "[[EarWorm By Mennen!]]" [[spoiler:Takes a much less humorous turn when it's revealed that Ben is approaching old age for a ghoul and is starting to turn feral]].

* Mammon from ''Webcomic/KillSixBillionDemons'' is an immortal dragon god who holds [[DragonHoard the largest hoard of money in the multiverse]]. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, his immortality [[AgeWithoutYouth has not protected him from the ravages of time]]; when the protagonists finally confront him, they find he's nearly blind and succumbing to dementia. He doesn't remember how or even ''why'' he collected his vast treasure and does nothing but shamble about aimlessly in his vault, counting all the gold in it. He's become such a pitiful, broken down wreck that Allison [[SympathyForTheDevil visibly sympathizes with him]], despite all the pain he inflicted on others in his youth.]]

** In the episode "World War III" it's a plot point that Nine's memory is so crowded and cluttered he needs help to remember the species the Slitheen come from, and their WeaksauceWeakness. This is alsoo explicitly mentioned in "Silence in the Library" when it takes the Doctor a while to recognize the Vashta Narada.

* ''Series/DoctorWho''. WordOfGod has it that the Doctor can't remember how old he is anymore, instead going with the generic 900 years whenever the issue comes up.
** Now he's even older; in "The Day of the Doctor," the War Doctor and his tenth and eleventh incarnations are stuck in the same cell:

WordOfGod has it that the Doctor can't remember how old he is anymore, instead going with their exact age anymore - the generic 900 years whenever Ninth Doctor just settled on '900' and started counting from there. This made into the issue comes up.
** Now he's even older;
actual show in "The Day of the Doctor," where the War Doctor and his tenth and eleventh incarnations are stuck in the same cell:



** In the episode "World War III" it's a plot point that his memory is so crowded and cluttered he needs help to remember the species the Slitheen come from, and their WeaksauceWeakness. He does that lots of times. It can't help that he also remembers multiple timelines.

** At least he remembers the important things. In the short "Good Night," he has this to say when Amy comments that his companions are such tiny parts of his life that he must hardly notice them:

** In [[Recap/DoctorWhoS36E4KnockKnock Knock Knock]], the Doctor encounters a woman who was made immortal 60 years ago by her father with the help of extraterrestrial termites. Things quickly don't add up when her elderly father is still alive and not affected with the same condition as her. [[spoiler:It turns that he's actually her son who told her he was her father to explain his age because she could not retain her memory over the years.]]

* Averted with [[Literature/CaptainFrenchOrTheQuestForParadise Captain Graham French]], who has very vivid memories of his life spanning 20,000 years, although, to be fair, thanks to TimeDilation, he's only [[TheAgeless 2000 years old]]. He not only remembers details of his own life but recalls details of planetary histories and great literary authors. True, there are some things he's a bit foggy on, but no more than an ordinary person having trouble recalling some obscure event or detail.

At the same time, he mentions to his wife that the model she befriended on Barsoom has already likely forgotten her (decades have already passed for the universe outside their ship).

* Khayman in ''Literature/QueenOfTheDamned'' suffers from this. As the third vampire ever in existence, he has spent the last 6000 years continuously active, alternatively losing and regaining his mind over the centuries, thus remembers little of his own life. It's been implied that during his periods of sanity, he engages in a game of manhunt with the Talamasca, who study the supernatural, while simultaneously writing many treaties on the origins of the vampire race as a ''member'' simply because [[RefugeInAudacity he likes to mess with them]].

Averted with his contemporary Maharet, who holds on to the memories because of her connection to the numerous descendants of her human daughtet, but played straight with her twin sister Mekare, who has gone insane over the millennia.
