* Ryuuko during the events ''Concerning a Drifter'' is having a hard time remembering her life before and around the time of her captivity and [[spoiler: rapes]] due to the resulting trauma and mental illness. Said amnesia in this case doesn't just happen with what had happened to her, it also extends to happy memories of before or her name. When she does recall anything, she either doesn't remember it too well or she mostly recalls anything that isn't specific about it. She mostly borders on RepressedMemories.

** Eren himself has a case of this: [[spoiler:The gaps in his childhood memories were due the trauma of him [[SelfMadeOrphan eating his father Grischa]] in Titan form, and coming to next to what little was left over.]]

* In ''Manga/FushigiYuugiGenbuKaiden, [[spoiler: Tomite's AnIcePerson powers were too much for him to control, and the first time they came to the surface he injured several of his clansmates, destroyed his village and [[HumanPopsicle accidentally froze his friend Aila]].]] This was so traumatizing for him that he developed this, [[spoiler: until Aila's brother Hikitsu ued his own MindProbe skills to make him remember.]]
--->'''Uruki''': [[LampshadeHanging "People tend to want to forget the things that they find most painful"]]



* One of the most complicated (and saddest) episodes of ''Series/ColdCase'' had a woman emerge from a two-year coma suffering from this in regards to her lost memories of her daughter's unsolved murder. Through a series of flashbacks and other evidence, it was eventually pieced together that [[spoiler: she had killed her daughter in a failed attempt at a double suicide.]] To wit, she was physically and sexually abused by [[ParentalIncest her father]] as a child, the [[DepartmentOfChildDisservices corrupt social worker who fudged the records about the "bad" parents so he could sexually abuse the clients' little girls]] [[KarmaHoudini and use his clout not only to get away with the abuse but to make the mothers look crazy/unfit to care for the children and lose the children permanently to the system.]] He had even declared her unfit and said that he would be knocking on her door and coming to take her away at any moment. Horrified of this happening, she [[spoiler: thought a pizza delivery boy who was a friend of hers knocking on the door to give her pizza was the social worker and [[TearJerker she ended up jumping out of the window with her daughter in her arms.]]]]

* In ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'', Luke has TraumaInducedAmnesia from a kidnapping seven years ago that wiped out all of his memories of the event -- as well as all memories of events prior to the kidnapping -- while Guy has amnesia about [[spoiler:the death of his family]]. In Luke's case [[spoiler:it's subverted once it turns out that the Luke that got kidnapped wasn't the one his family got back -- and the recovered one didn't exist prior to the kidnapping.]]

** However, the''Heaven's Feel'' route has a case that's ambiguous as to whether it's mental trauma, or [[HeroicRROD just physical]]: [[spoiler: after having Archer's arm grafted onto his body, Shirou starts having a physical and mental breakdown as a result of his powers. When he kills a BrainwashedAndCrazy [[LoveAtFirstSight Saber]], he immediately forgets everything about her; it's not clear if it was due to the trauma of the incident, or just his brain finally giving in to his [[HeroicRROD breakdown.]]]]

** 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]].
