* [[spoiler: Kudou Yoji]] in ''WeissKreuz Gluhen'' ends the series with a case of Victory Guided Amnesia following a DisneyDeath - arguably the best-case scenario, given the character's state throughout the series.

* The good ending to ''VideoGame/Manhunt2'' shows Daniel waking up on a roadside not even remembering his own name. Fortunately he has an envelope on him that gives him a new identity and tells him the address where he lives. After he's [[spoiler: had a malfunctioning microchip in his brain containing the personality of a remorseless serial killer which lead to him killing his best friend and entire family]], forgetting everything and being given a fresh start is pretty much the best ending you could hope for.

* Christopher Nolan's ''Film/{{Memento}}'' uses a version of this trope, but only because the main character suffers from short-term memory loss.

* In a {{Retcon}} to explain the amnesia of {{Namor}} the Sub-Mariner in his first post-[[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] reappearance, it was later said that in his final battle with the powerful psychic Destine, Namor was hypnotically commanded to fly as far as his little wings could take him, and simultaneously to forget his own identity. He wound up spending nearly a decade (or several, after the SlidingTimescale got through with him) as an amnesiac derelict in the Bowery with a fear of water.

* This is a source of trouble at the ending of ''DevilSurvivor2''. It is possible to restore the deleted world through the power of the AkashicRecords, but the problem is, you need to prove yourself stronger than your past, leading to a series of battles with shadowy monsters created from each characters' past files.
