** Lelouch uses his Geass to alter the memories of a classmate who happened to find out his role as the terrorist [[SecretIdentity Zero]]. Psychological torture at the hands of one of his enemies left [[spoiler:her]] emotionally devastated and very nearly homicidal/suicidal, so he erased ''all'' memories of himself from [[spoiler:her]] mind (not just his identity as Zero). Humorously enough, everyone else at school can't seem to understand why [[spoiler:Shirley]] has forgotten him, and Lelouch convinces them that the whole thing is an act the amnesia-ee is putting on because [[spoiler:she]]'s angry from an argument with him.

* At the conclusion of ''Literature/TheDarkIsRising'' series, this form of amnesia is inflicted upon [[spoiler:the Drew children and Bran Davies]], as their destiny is to live in the mortal world and leave memories of the (now concluded) conflict between the Light and the Dark behind. However, Merriman tells them that they may still remember the supernatural world in dreams, and they will always carry with them a sense of the wonder that is now past.

* ''ComicBook/AstroCity'' has a short story, "The Nearness of You", in which it's gradually revealed that a woman was [[Ret Gone]]d out of existence during a Crisis Crossover which happened almost entirely "offscreen". Her husband still vaguely remembers her existence.
