* ComicBook/MachineTeen is initially unaware that he's a robot. When he's injured at school he refuses to accept that he's not bleeding, and when he's forced to acknowledge it, he immediately shuts down while the knowledge is deleted.

Finally, he confronted an Arch Lector who stated that Diedrick himself would become Archaeon. Diedrick snapped, killed the Lector, and fled to the north, where he embraced his destiny and became one of the most feared Warriors of Chaos.

* The trope is played with throughout the first half of [[{{Marvel 2099}} Doom 2099]]. Doom claims he jumped to the future due to a failed experiment, which also damaged some of his memory. People note strange discrepancies at first (he's too young, his face isn't scarred [at first], etc). Then Doom learns he was the son of a political enemy to Latveria, who was kidnapped by the REAL Doctor Doom and {{Brainwashed}} into thinking he was the real Doom. [[spoiler:Then it gets massively subverted. Doom really ''was'' the real deal; his youth and failed memories were because of a regeneration tank. There was no Gambit; it was just Doom's former lover getting bored and screwing with him.]]

* In ''ComicBook/TheUnbelievableGwenpool'', when Gwen explains that their world is really a comic book, Batroc the Leaper dismisses this as nonsense. To prove it, Gwen asks him to tell her something about his life from before he met Captain America for the first time. He cannot recall anything, and she explains that he literally didn't exist before he was introduced in the comics. He takes the revelation in stride.

Actually she is right for the wrong reasons though. Batroc ''should'' remember his backstory no matter when it was established relative to his first appearance (that's how {{retcon}}s work), but unfortunately for Batroc no writer ever bothered to establish one for him. This probably just makes the revelation sadder.

* Season 2 of ''Series/{{The Flash|2014}}'' gives us Zoom, a CompleteMonster from Earth-2 who murders cops left and right and nearly kills Barry a couple of times. Who is he? Well, his real name is Hunter Zolomon; but we know him better as Jay Garrick, the Flash of Earth-2, friend of Barry, Caitlyn's boyfriend, all around good guy. All the more shocking because his introduction comes on the heels of him murdering his own time remnant.
