Memory and amnesia in TV, movies, and video games works a bit differently than in RealLife... Why? Because memory often makes for an interesting storyline involving one or more characters, and can be used to make a powerful argument on questions such as identity, destiny, betrayal and love. The usefulness of this trope is tricky, as memory loss isn't as common in RealLife as it is in fiction. [[Mst3kMantra Don't worry about it too much, as]] TropesAreTools.
