* This is what happens to the player character of the PC mystery game ''Enigmatis: The Ghosts of Maple Creek''. She knows she's in her current location in search of the answers to a case, and she finds her own notes and realizes she was approaching a breakthrough, but she doesn't know what happened next or why she can't remember. The player must help her reclaim her memories, solve the murder mystery, and get the hell out of Dodge before someone kills her too.





Added DiffLines:

* This may be the case with Charles and Delia in ''Webcomic/CobwebAndStripes''. It's not actually stated why they have no memory of the [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} backstory]] of the comic, but given the nightmarish events they survived, it could very well be this.

*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.

* In LoisMcMasterBujold's ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Mirror Dance]]'', Miles Vorkosigan suffers from amnesia after [[spoiler:being killed, frozen, and then revived]].
** This is more of a subversion, since the amnesia is the result of a medical procedure, rather than emotional stress or obvious brain trauma.

* Holocaust Survivor Zoltan Zinn Collis, who was saved from Bergin Belsen concentration camp at the age of five, claims to remember atrocities, but to have no memory of his own emotional response to them at the time. This is known as disassociation and is quite common among those who have lived through a trauma.
