Alice and Bob are very much in love. However, due to cruel fate and improbable circumstances, Bob has recently been the victim of some Laser-Guided Amnesia — or possibly some Identity Amnesia — that specifically targeted their shared memories of being a couple. Now Bob is in the difficult position of neither knowing who he is, nor why this crazy person insists they're in love. Alice has her work cut out for her as well. She'll have to help her Amnesiac Lover either remember his love, or even find their love all over again, in the hope that unlike lightning, love can strike in the same place twice.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })This is no easy task, depending on how much of his memory is lost. While helping Bob recover the lost pieces of his identity, Alice will be further tortured by being both with and without the man she loves. If she shows her full feelings too quickly, she risks losing him entirely, ranging from him being creeped out, to feeling manipulated.
Bob may not even want to love Alice back (at least at first). Complicating matters, he may instead start falling for someone else - or even worse, perhaps in the past he was in love with somebody else and thinks he's still with them.
Where this gets interesting is if both Alice and Bob have suffered the effects of amnesia, in which case they'll somehow manage to gravitate back towards each other as if they shared a Reincarnation Romance. The effects are much the same if Time Travel is involved, though at least in these cases Alice may be able to convince Bob they're a couple in the future thanks to knowledge of his personal life. If Bob is dead in the present, expect Alice to be especially melancholy at the situation.

In the episode Sandswich of Aladdin: The Series, everyone but the animals sidekicks is rendered amnesiac, and believe Sadira is the princess- and Aladdin's fiancee. Thus Aladdin and Jasmine fall both under the trope; and it rings a bell to the both of them when they meet again. They finally break the curse with a spontaneous True Love's Kiss.
In Forget me lots, Jasmine's new memories of a Criminal Amnesiac are so strong that even after seeing her loved ones, she is still trying to kill them. Still, when Aladdin reminds her that they met and fell in love exactly a year ago, it cures her.

The episode "Betty" in Adventure Time ends like this — once Betty restores the Ice Crown's magic in order to save her fiance, Simon/Ice King, from succumbing to No Immortal Inertia, it erases his memories and he once again has no idea who she is. However, she is still in Ooo searching for a cure for him, so there may be hope yet.

Shall We Date?: Ninja Shadow has Eduard, a Dutch man who cannot remember what he did and how he lived before coming to the still-isolated Japan and working for both the Dutch trading houses and the Nagasaki Vigilantes. It turns out to be Trauma-Induced Amnesia, coming from having been a Tyke Bomb for a guild of Dutch assassins. The Big Bad of the route, Willem, aims to make Eduard remember so he'll return.

In Advice and Trust, Rei ends up loosing all memories of Kaworu (right after she begins to return his affection) due to being killed in a Heroic Sacrifice and then restored with a memory backup from before they met. She finds it very hard to believe that she could have ever fallen in love with an angel, and probably would have dismissed it as a lie if Asuka and Shinji (whom she trusts implicitly) hadn't corroborated the story. She gets all her memories back when she taps back into her Psychic Link with Lilith.

A non-romantic instance in The World Ends with You. Rhyme has suffered Laser-Guided Amnesia, and fails to remember that her partner Beat is her older brother. However, Rhyme is such a pure, happy little girl that she still remembers what a good person her older brother was, and talks about him and his good deeds endlessly to Beat. However, Most of that was either lies told by Beat for Rhyme's benefit, or instances from several years ago, back before he grew away from her and began to hate her just as much as the rest of his family. Although apparently even this is partly a lie, since Beat died trying to save her. Not to mention that apparently her memories of him were his most important thing, since they were taken as his entry fee.

Season two of Grimm has a plot where Juliette can't remember Nick due to a spell. It actually turned out to be a good thing because as a result of what she went through while under the spell, when she finally remembers what Nick told her about the masquerade, she actually believes it.

An episode of House featured a patient who turned up in the ER with no memory of who she was. When they find out she's married, she seems repelled by both her husband and by the life she turns out to have (having no memory of their history together, or of the events that catalyzed her choices). Naturally, this disturbs her husband, but the team explains that her memories are unlikely to ever return, while he thinks of her as his wife, she sees him as someone she's just met. He appears to take their advice to court her and try to rebuild their marriage from the beginning, and she appears to be receptive.

Used in Chinese Paladin 3 between Changqing and Zixuan, due to two previously failed Reincarnation Romances. In this case, it's the "I don't know why this person is bugging me (but I kind of like it)" version. Changqing eventually regains his memories, but doesn't stay with her. Initially.

Occurs in an episode of Castle. The man suffering from the amnesia never really gets his memories back, but since he can't remember why he and his wife divorced, they are able to get back together. Also subverted in the same episode where a woman claims to be the man's wife after seeing on the news that he had amnesia and figuring it to be an easy way to get a husband.

The Simpsons:
The trope is the main focus on the episode "Regarding Margie", in which Marge got amnesia from bumping her head on a stool.
Don Hertzfeldt's Couch Gag for "Clown in the Dumps" posits a particularly horrifying scenario: as the show continues to air for century after century, the art design changes radically, with increasingly abstract versions of Marge struggling to tell Homer that she loves him and will never forget him. But by the year 10,535, the characters have mutated beyond all recognition — confronted with grotesque, catchphrase-spouting children and a vacant wife who can only shout alien propaganda, Homer utters a rather forlorn version of his trademark [annoyed grunt].

The Miraculous Ladybug episode "Oblivio" inverts the trope. The Monster of the Week's power is inducing amnesia, resulting in the heroes forgetting that they're not already a couple. Their obvious mutual attraction and things like them having photos of each other as the wallpapers of their cellphones gives them the obvious but wrong conclusion.

Once on All My Children, Ryan got amnesia that made him forget the past four-or-so years of his life. He couldn't even remember meeting his current wife, much less anything about her, and instead believed he was still seeing and in love with one of his ex-girlfriends. Also he had a child with another woman (which was a botched surrogacy, not another romantic relationship) he didn't remember to complicate it even further.

Rule of Rose makes an extremely unconventional twist of this trope. It turns out that Jennifer swore everlasting true love with Wendy when they were children, but Wendy went Yandere when Jennifer got a puppy on the side, eventually leading to the deaths of everybody in the orphanage except Jennifer who lost her memory from the trauma, and the game is set in her muddled memories trying to reclaim what she lost, even though both subjects of her love are long since dead.

Inverted in 36 Hours (1965). Major Jefferson Pike is told that during the period which he can no longer remember (from 1944 to 1950) he fell in love with and married Anna Hedler, who is now distraught that he can no longer remember her. It's all part of an elaborate plan of deception. He never had amnesia. He never married Anna. And it's not 1950.

Torchwood: In "Adam", the titular Adam is actually a memory altering alien which infiltrates the facility. While inserting memories of himself into Gwen, he accidentally erases those of her fiancé Rhys. When she gets home, not only does she not remember who is he, but thinks he's some psychopathic stalker who wants to rape her. However, once she gets over the initial shock (and her friends try to jog her memory), she is perfectly willing to let Rhys remind her of their relationship.

Cave Story: The protagonist and Curly Brace (if you hold to the interpretation that they are a Battle Couple). In the aftermath of the Core fight, Curly sustains damage and can't remember you at all the next time you meet. You have to backtrack to nearly the beginning of the game to find an item that restores her memory. When she does get her memory back, she realizes that all your in-game interactions with her were amnesiac romance—you had been partners ten years ago, and then both she and you sustained amnesia prior to the start of the game.

An episode of American Dad! took it a step further, with Francine not just losing her memories but reverting to herself from college, where she was a drunken free-spirited party girl. Stan, who's just about the definition of "The Man", had to try to win her back by convincing her that he had a sensitive side (which he managed to do after failing several times by saying I Want My Beloved to Be Happy).

Princess Sakura in Tsubasa -RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE-, at least before the Mind Screw plot sets in. The Witch of Space-Time strikes a deal with Syaoran that he can travel through dimensions freely to recover Sakura's memories, but at the cost of his relationship with Sakura - the most precious thing in the cosmos to him. The Witch later reveals that this counts as Sakura's payment as well (she was unconscious when the transaction was made), because she also treasures their relationship. To twist the knife further, there's a tiny Reset Button in place: any time Sakura figures out that she must have known Syaoran before she lost her memory, she'll be knocked out and wake up again, having forgotten even that.

Berserk's Casca has a severe, trauma-induced case of this as a result of the horrible events of the Eclipse which drove her insane and rendered her mute. One can hardly blame Guts for being madder than hell at Griffith for driving her into this state, but leaving her to deal with her trauma alone for two years to pursue vengeance against him did not help matters for her at all.

Subverted in a One Life to Live storyline. "Todd" (actualy the real Todd's brother) rescues an amnesiac Marty from a car wreck and nurses her back to health. He convinces her that they were friends in college and that he was secretly in love with her from afar. She falls in love with him based on this "friendship" and seduces him while in his care. It's only afterwards she learns that not only did he neglect to tell her that she had a son who was convinced she was dead, but that when they were in college together, he was the ringleader of her gang rape.

Rachel is this to Locke in Final Fantasy VI. While exploring a cave, she falls and loses her memory after some nasty head trauma. Her family basically forces Locke to leave and say that him being around and trying to get her remember him just causes her more pain. He becomes a Failure Knight after he later learns that Rachel was killed when The Empire invaded the village she lived in, and she remembered him right before she died. The whole flashback where this is revealed in the World of Ruin is just a massive Tear Jerker.

In Frozen Essence, the protagonist Mina suffers from Trauma-Induced Amnesia after she's freed from her Crystal Prison and hence has no memory or clue that the Oracle who rescued her and the mysterious voice that occasionally comforts or helps her is actually Zareh, her childhood friend who's in love with her and has worked hard for a long time to be able to help her. Zareh chooses not to tell Mina about this in most story paths because he believes that she'd be happier not remembering anything about her past and/or being with someone else, but his own story path has Mina regain her memories and choose to either accept or reject him.

Back in the olden days (like the '70s) on As the World Turns, heroine Kim lost her memory, including those of her love Dan. Scheming Susan worked this to advantage, even going as far as to attempt erasure of Kim's answering machine message proclaiming that she did indeed remember Dan and their love. Susan failed and Kim and Dan were reunited.
When Jack was presumed dead, he had actually been rescued and nursed back to health by a woman who shared a name with his crazy ex-wife Julia. The Florence Nightingale Effect took place, to the point where he all but loathed his true love Carly when she tracked him down. It took intense work on her part to get him to remember her.

Kim Possible suffers Phlebotinum-induced amnesia in the fourth season episode "Clean Slate". After a night of reviewing childhood memories, she soon remembers that Ron is her best friend, but finds it laughably unlikely that they had got a Relationship Upgrade. It takes seeing his pants fall down to remember that she gave him a belt for their "half-a-versary" and that she does love him in that way.

Played pretty straight in Fire Emblem Gaiden and even straighter in its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. The White Magician Girl Tatiana is in a relationship with the knight Zeke, whom she found ashore with no memories of his past and rescued/took care of. What she doesn't know is that Zeke is actually the Anti-Villain and Black Knight Camus, believed to have died in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light; when he begins to recover his lost memories, Tatiana is very scared and conflicted, though Zeke promises that he will stay with her. What happens in the end depends on whether both of them live to the end: If both survive, Zeke fully recovers her memories and briefly leaves to help Archanea (and his former love Nyna) in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem but ultimately returns to Tatiana's side and they marry. If Tatiana dies, Zeke crosses the Despair Event Horizon and leaves to help Archanea too, but never returns to Valentia. If Zeke dies, Tatiana also crosses the Despair Event Horizon and falls in heavy depression (and only recovers in Echoes).

Used tragically in ef: A Tale of Memories. Chihiro is only able to remember new things up to 13 hours after they happen. If she doesn't constantly read her diary and write events in well thinking about events throughout the day, they will be completely forgotten. This also means no matter how hard she tries, she'll never truly be mentally older than 13 years old. Her eventual boyfriend Renji and her are constantly struggling with this fact and it gets worse before it gets better. An underlining theme throughout the story is the fact The Power of Love will not help along this road and Chihiro will never recover.
She even completely forgets Renji and everything else after she suddenly collapses and sleeps for more than 13 hours, causing her to wake up with no memory of her accident and have to find out everything about her life up until that point all over again, which wasn't the first time this had happened.

WALL•E ends with EVE rebuilding WALL-E and trying to show him his favorite things, only to have him revert to his original programming as a trash compactor. He eventually snaps out of it when she hums his favorite love song. Some viewers interpreted this as his memory drives needing extra time to boot up after his near-destruction. Others called it The Power of Love.

The Good Place:
Everyone but Michael keeps having their minds erased from all of his hundred of reboots, but in the months between repeatedly fall in love only to have their memories erased again. However, Janet, who got married to Jason in the first generation, remains in love with him in spite of her own memory also being constantly wiped. Part of the second season (where Michael has finally stopped rebooting everyone) has a sub-plot revolving around her being miserable while Jason pursues a relationship with Tahani.
Happens again later: At the end of season 3, when the new Good Place experiment is being set up, the Bad Place chooses Chidi's ex Simone as one of the subjects. Chidi asks to have his memories of Simone erased so he won't slip up and ruin the experiment... but this will also remove his memories of Eleanor, who he's just started dating. Eleanor then has to run the experiment for a year and can't tell Chidi about their past relationship, and in fact at one point she tells Chidi that he and Simone are soulmates.

Fry however fell down a chasm, hitting his head, and discovered a hidden society of Neanderthals who assumed he was one of them because of his swollen forehead and natural stupidity. Fry eventually leads the Neanderthals to battle against the Homo Sapiens, and just has he and Leela are about to kill each other, they both regain their memories and unite the two species.

In Planescape: Torment, Deionarra has this problem: She loves The Nameless One, but the incarnation she fell in love with is long since gone and subsequent ones do not know who she is. Her love is so strong that it binds her to the world even after death. It takes on a decisively tragic bent when you learn that the incarnation she fell in love with never loved her in the first place, but purposefully deceived and used her so she would stay bound to the planes and keep on serving his designs even after death. The Nameless One has the option to reciprocate her feelings at the end of the game (or at least claim that you do out of kindness) to grant her peace.

The trilogy that makes up the final Sword of Truth books features a spell that destroys everyone's memory of Richard's wife Kahlan, including Kahlan's memories of her own life and her marriage to Richard. Richard is immune to the spell and needs to find a way to help Kahlan and reverse the spell without revealing their relationship to her for fear that knowledge of their love would interfere with the counterspell. She does find out, but because she had already fallen in love with Richard again, it didn't matter.

Doctor Who:
When Rory not only dies, but is erased from existence, Amy forgets everything about him. Eventually he manages to remind her (he comes back as a Roman — don't ask).
A season later, they both manage to forget who each other are due to the Time Crash. All Amy knows is that she's in love with a man named Rory; she just doesn't know what he looks like. What a shame that Officer Pond never asked what Captain Williams' first name was. They still sort it out anyway.
In "Hell Bent", the Twelfth Doctor is forced to erase most of his memories of Clara Oswald after his love for her (whether platonic or otherwise is a matter of fan debate) drives him to threaten all of reality by attempting to change her destiny. While he retains memories of their adventures, and is able to piece together some facts such as her name, crucially he no longer remembers "what she looked like, or how she talked, or laughed..." Sadly, he says this to Clara, who is standing right in front of him and he doesn't realize it.

In Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny, Neo Roanoke ends up in this position once he's taken prisoner by the crew of the Archangel, who confirm that he's actually Captain Murrue Ramius's presumed-dead lover Mu La Flaga - at least in body. Amnesiac Dissonance sets in immediately, to the point that when Murrue tries to set him free, he comes back of his own accord to help the Archangel in battle, even though he doesn't recover his memories until the finale.

Becoming an Eternal in Eien no Aselia causes everyone to forget that person ever existed. Only similar people will remember the way things were before. Which means that if it happens to the player character, the lover isn't going to remember. Except while they don't remember, their emotions will still be there. They'll just be very confused.

Given that Bucky was canonically brainwashed and continually mind-wiped by HYDRA as the Winter Soldier for seventy years, this trope automatically comes into effect in post-Captain America: The Winter Soldier Bucky/Steve fics and Bucky/Natasha fics that draw on their characters' history in the Red Room from the original comic books. Bucky/Steve fics also tend to play with this trope quite a bit: some invert it with Bucky's feelings for Steve as the only thing he can remember at first and others subvert it with Bucky coming to believe that he and Steve were lovers only to learn that they never actually were.

In Little Busters!: Every time Riki tries to ask her out, Kurugaya turns up the next day as if nothing happened. Even after they start going out, she forgets every night and has to remind herself with a Note to Self. In this case, though, the amnesia is specifically caused by the fact that they're lovers - the world they are in didn't expect that and so can't cope with it, causing it to break down.

In Sailor Moon, Mamoru/Darien becomes one of these in the anime-only Makaiju arc, due to being the last of everyone involved in the previous arc to regain his memories. He still had a subconscious desire to help Usagi/Serena, leading to the "birth" of the Mysterious Protector Moonlight Knight who takes up the Tuxedo Mask role of sorts.

The film 50 First Dates was all about this. Due to a brain injury, the female protagonist can't form new long-term memories, and when she falls asleep, forgets everything since her car accident. The male protagonist is a Casanova who enjoys "meeting" her and winning her love every day.

Virtually the entire cast of Once Upon a Time. The very premise of the show is that all the characters have been ripped apart from the people they love, and their memories have been erased. The separated lovers still find themselves inexplicably drawn to each other, but they don't know why, which is especially troublesome when many of them have already married other people since the amnesia set in.

Lois & Clark: Lois, during a season three arc, goes through two versions of amnesia: one with fake memories and one that left her memories in a blank state. In both cases, she cannot recognize Clark/Superman as her fiancé. But Asabi, a psychic with Telepathy capacities, is able to tell that Lois' heart is taken.

Downplayed in To the Moon. Johnny meets River in high school, marries her as an adult, and lives happily with her until she dies from a illness in old age. What he isn't aware of is that him and River had met long before high school, and back then made a promise that if they ever got separated in some way, they would meet each other again on the Moon. But Johnny has forgotten this since his twin brother, Joey, died in an accident and he was given beta blockers to cope with the experience, and this had the side effect of suppressing almost all memories of his early childhood. When River discover that he has forgotten about their old promise, she tries for the rest of her life to subtly jog his memory, as she is implied to have Asperger's Syndrome and therefore have difficulties with telling him outright, but Johnny never realizes this. In the end, after River's death, all he remembers is a inexplicable longing to visit the Moon.

In Random Harvest, based on a novel by James Hilton, a shell-shocked amnesiac veteran wanders away from a hospital and meets a music hall performer. They make a life together until he is hit by a car and gets up off the ground with his old memories back, and no memory of being with the other woman. He returns to his old life and we are surprised to find that a few years later his secretary is his wife, who tracked down her missing husband and got the job to be near the man she loves hoping that his memory will return. It does. Check out the Carol Burnett version "Rancid Harvest".

Subverted in Tales of the Abyss. Natalia and Luke are arranged to be married and have a Childhood Marriage Promise. But later, Luke loses ALL his memories, and seven years later Natalia still can't make him fall in love with her. Then it turns out that Luke DOESN'T have amnesia, he's a clone of the real Luke and took his place, the real one having adopted another identity (Asch the Bloody) but having his memories intact and still caring for Natalia. So Luke can't remember Natalia's love because he isn't the one she loved to begin with.

Arashi no Yoru ni: Near the end of the movie, Gabu gets caught in an avalanche and forgets who he is and his relationship with Mei. It is one of the few times in the movie when Mei really loses his cool, and he damn well does. Made even worse by the fact that Gabu is not just apathetic to Mei - he actually wants to eat him. He gets better, thankfully.

In It's a Wonderful Life, Mary naturally loses all memory of George after Clarance made it as if George had never been born. George is extremely upset to find that his wife doesn't recognize him, and tearfully tries to get her to remember. Because this version of Mary grew up in a Crapsack World and thus is extremely withdrawn, she just freaks out and runs for it.

Downplayed and inverted in And The Story Continues with Umbra/L. Downplayed in that he and Erin did not enter an official romantic relationship in the past but it's been heavily implied that they did have those kind of feelings for each other before his death and subsequent reincarnation. Inverted in that Umbra/L has forgotten everything EXCEPT his love for Erin. Overlaps with Ghost Amnesia.
