* A planet visited in the nineth season of ''Series/StargateSG1'' developed a device that allowed memories to be copied from one individual and transferred to another, but not changing what happened in existing memories. They could delete memories, too, although this wasn't the primary function of the device.

* While MemoMax technology was really just intended to explain why ''TabletopGame/{{Paranoia}}'' characters can retain their memories and personalities even after being replaced by their own clones, later editions would explore some of the ''darker'' implications of the technology.

* The [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Yuuzhan Vong]] from the NewJediOrder can literally manufacture memories. Usually this is used as a way to learn new skills quickly, but with time and careful application can also [[MindRape overwrite entire personalities]]. For the latter, though, as it requires a very complex set of memories, it's easiest to just use someone's preexisting ones rather than grow a whole new set, however.

* The Memory Bulbs from Jeff [=VanderMeer's=] ''[[{{Ambergris}} Finch]]'' allow the Graycaps to access the memories of recently deceased individuals. You simply sprinkle some spores on the corpse, wait for awhile for the fungoid bulb grow from their head and then [[{{Squick}} eat it]]. The experience is extremely confusing, at least for humans, trying to perceive range of events in a non-linear fashion, like picking them up randomly from the air. Since the memories always belong to a dead person, experiencing the memory of their deaths can be traumatic, as well. But worst of all, sometimes the process simply goes wrong when a human ingests the bulb; one detective's body breaks down into a mass of spores after going through the process one too many times.

* The Dreamweavers from Literature/TheAgeOfTheFive can 'link' to swap memories. Ironically, the best way to avoid having your personality drowned out by link memories is... more linking.[[note]]Or more accurately, the ritual of asserting of one's identity at the end of a link session.[[/note]]
