* Helga Pataki of ''HeyArnold'' suffers from this in the episode "Beaned" when she's struck by a baseball hit by old 'Dangerous Lumber' himself, Arnold. After waking up fully recovered the next morning, Helga continues faking her amnesia to guilt-trip Arnold into taking care of her, but begins to feel sorry for forcing him to pay attention to her. She fakes another head injury which 'cures' her amnesia and uses her usual [[{{Tsundere}} crabby bluster]] to try and put some distance between them, but is pleasantly surprised that he still wants to make sure she's okay.
* Played for laughs with the eponymous {{Archer}} in the episode "Fugue and Riffs." The trauma: [[spoiler: Mallory got married.]]

* Sabo of ''Manga/OnePiece'' is Luffy's second brother, long presumed-dead after offending a member of the World Nobility. He reappears during the Dressrosa arc, to Luffy's shock, and aids in the battling the conflict there. The reason he never appeared in front of either of his brothers before that point was because the same incident that made everyone think he was dead also caused him to lose his memory. The event that restored Sabo's memory was equally traumatic, as it resulted from learning about [[spoiler:Ace's death in the battles at Marineford]]. Specifically, it was reading about [[spoiler:Ace being killed by Admiral Akainu, a.k.a. Sakazuki, because it made him remember exchanging sake cups, or ''sakazuki'', with Ace and Luffy as children]].
