* In ''Anime/HeatGuyJ'', Clair has one of these in an early episode, triggered by a robot boy who was programmed to say "yes" to just about any command and ask if it was alright. It doesn't start with a happy memory, just a montage of Clair being pressured by his father, and being too afraid of him to disagree. He has another one later, when he's worried about his friend/bodyguard, Giovanni, who has been attacked by [[spoiler: a rogue J.]] This flashback is to [[spoiler: the deaths of his two other bodyguards, and the time he killed his father.]]

** Kia Freeborn has one of these, too. He flashes back to a happy life with his parents, but it quickly turns sour as his father lets fame go to his head and starts drinking, using drugs, cheating on his wife, and beating her while Kia cries in the other room. It ends with him going to inform his dad that his mom died, only for him to see how happy his father is with his new family.

* Mandatory for a character to join the main crew of ''OnePiece''. Most of the flashbacks took up one episode, others took three. Luffy's past, after nearly 500 episodes, actually gets expanded upon - which the anime is using to [[{{Filler}} to fill up as much time as possible.]]
* ''TigerAndBunny'''s Barnaby has a considerable number of these -- usually in the form of his own nightmares or frequently recalled and re-analyzed memories. The number of [[spoiler: inconsistencies that turn up during each repetition of a particular memory are a clue that they are, in fact, FakeMemories planted by his ParentalSubstitute, Albert Maverick.]]
