* After the protagonists finish playing {{Jumanji}}, time is reset back to 1969, before Alan and Sarah started playing the game. They remember the whole thing but Judy and Peter apparently don't remember, presumably because time was reset to before they were born.

* In at least two of Creator/AndreNorton's novels (''Literature/AndroidAtArms'' and ''The Crystal Gryphon'') one protagonist wins the day by calling forth a powerful force that acts through them - but since they weren't in control at the time, they can't remember exactly what they did, or how. The latter had a sequel, in which the hero eventually learned to use power himself, without losing his own identity in the process.

* The last book of Stephen King's "Franchise/DarkTower" series ends with [[spoiler: Roland finally reaching the Tower after years of questing, only for it to show him a sort of presentation outlining his many failings as a person, then sending his soul back in time to the start of the first book.]] He has just enough time to be horrified before his memory is reset, and is offered only the ''possibility'' that events might unfold differently next time around. King realized that [[strike: it was a bad ending]] not all readers would be satisfied by the ending, so he included a message right before Roland [[spoiler: enters the Tower]], telling them it was OK to stop here if they wanted to preserve the mystery.
