* Possible aversion: In ''EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'', we see the movie as a 3rd person memory of the protagonists dreams. In real life he has no memory of his romantic rival's face because he didn't see it, so even though we see it in 3rd person, no matter how he moves the guy he's always TheBlank.

* PlayedForLaughs in ''ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' in the UnreliableNarrator episode.
* An episode in ''TouchedByAnAngel'' used this in the episode where a student was accused of plagiarizing. The flashback started with what the person remembered, and it was then extended to include something the person didn't see (his own submission being modified by a person he helped). That caused a negative reaction from the person, who wasn't present during the extended portion.

* {{Website/Cracked}} mocked ''TheEternalMind'' usage of this trope.
** "We're not entirely sure why all the happy memories in "The Eternal Mind" are from someone else's perspective, though."


[[AC:WebVideo]]
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' lampshades this trope occasionally, even making fun of how Tèa was somehow able to remember something when she was unconscious.
