** And again in ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpititOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'', [[spoiler:this time tragically inverted. Sorin Sprocket was in a car accident that killed his sister and gave him anterograde amnesia. Whenever he goes to sleep, he loses all new memories made that day. Instead of blocking out the traumatic event in his life, he's forced to have it be the freshest thing in his mind every single time he wakes up]].

* In the web-novel ''Literature/{{Domina}}'', this is apparently what happens to the changelings. They are kidnapped by the fey, horrifically tortured and experimented on, to the point that by the time they escape they have absolutely no memories of their lives before the fey. [[spoiler:Later chapters reveal that the changelings are actually homunculi, {{Artificial Human}}s built from the ground up. The fey give them some basic skills like language, but can't implant any real memories. It's not explained why the fey do this, but it's implied that they knew they needed people to oppose them and keep them in check]].

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/8793565/chapters/20159878 How the Light Gets In]]'' Laurel comes BackFromTheDead with amnesia. Initially she's in a daze, and barely seems to recognize anyone, but seeing her daughter makes her "wake up". However most of her memories are still gone, and slowly get "triggered": seeing a necklace makes remember Tommy (and his death), kissing Dean makes her remember their wedding, and seeing Sara brings back ''all'' her memories all at once [[spoiler:giving her a seizure.]].

* Ashley Riot, protagonist of VagrantStory, begins the game believing that he once had a wife and son who were murdered by thugs at a family picnic, but ManipulativeBastard Sydney proposes an alternate theory: Ashley murdered an innocent woman and her child during the course of his duties as a soldier, and through a combination of this trope and military brainwashing, convinced himself they were his family to help himself cope with the grief. [[TheUnreveal The game's writers deliberately left it vague as to which version of his backstory is correct]].

* ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' Sasuke Uchiha forgot two things after the massacre of his family. One is that he [[spoiler: activated his Sharingan for the first time and chased Itachi]]. The second is that [[spoiler: Itachi was [[CryCute cry]][[TearJerker ing]] before he left Sasuke]]. He doesn't remember either event until Itachi's [[spoiler: death]].
** Same goes for Kakashi. He didn't know that he unlocked the Mangekyo Sharingan after he killed [[spoiler: Rin]]. The sheer shock of killing her likely caused said amnesia. It's even more likely that his trauma was such, that ''he even forgot that he killed her''
