Children Are Innocent. Amnesiacs have memories as short as children's. Therefore, amnesiacs are innocent — and may have other childlike, or childish, traits to boot. In addition, even if they actually have committed crimes, they may honestly have no memory of having done so.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })If there was a Start of Darkness, the amnesia need only roll back to before then to produce this.
As a consequence, Amnesiac Dissonance is more likely to be a good character fearing having been evil than the other way round.
A subtrope of Rousseau Was Right, since the amnesiac is operating without the social conditioning of their life experience so far, and by extension opposed to In the Blood, since if wickedness were genetic, an amnesiac would be just as evil without their memories as with them. Because they are innocent and not actively good, it may also lead to Criminal Amnesiac, through being too trusting. They may also wreak all kinds of havoc through innocent unawareness. On a darker note, Death of Personality may be employed to invoke this, and people who perform a Memory Gambit are also abusing this trope in order to further their plans.

In issue 5 of Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW), Sonic and his friends come across Dr. Eggman, who lost his memory after the final battle of Sonic Forces and is living under the name of Mr. Tinker. As Mr. Tinker, Eggman is the exact opposite of his usual self: a humble and modest Nice Guy and Friend to All Children who enjoys helping people. Sonic even decides to let him be and go about his new life. Sadly, that all comes to an end when Dr. Starline tracks Eggman down and brings his memory back, restoring him to his old villainous self again.

X-Men:
The Ultimate version of Charles Xavier mindwipes Magneto at one point, and he becomes a rather genial old man fond of a game of chess in the park. It doesn't stick.
After Necrosha, Emma Frost captures Sebastian Shaw and sentences him to remember nothing but the faces of his victims. He's kept at Utopia as a man with secondhand knowledge of who he was that has managed to form relationships with some of the new mutants that arrive.

In Destiny, Guardians are resurrected with little-to-no memory of their past life and are expected to keep it that way, most likely to invoke this trope. In the event that a new Guardian's past life was a known criminal, the Tower expunges their record, effectively treating the Guardian's pre- and post-revival selves as separate individuals. This is how Uldren Sov was allowed to join after being revived in The Black Armory, even though he killed Cayde-6 in Forsaken (among other crimes) and was killed in turn by either the Player Character or Petra Venj in retribution.

In BoJack Horseman, we have this with an elderly Beatrice. Losing her memories (rather, the ability to recognize them) to senile dementia allows her to show a nicer side of herself and she's genuinely mindful of other people, however, while some of her actions (like spiking Hollyhock's coffee with amphetamines for example) can be inferred as well-intentioned , they are not good, so things don't end well.

Played a part in the Castle episode "Like Father, Like Daughter"; while investigating a man on death row that his daughter Alexis believes is innocent, Richard Castle learns that the man believes the murder he was arrested for was actually committed by his younger brother, who suffered minor brain damage after a car accident the older brother caused that gave him irregular amnesia, so the older brother believed his sibling genuinely didn't remember committing the crime and blamed himself for the original injury.
Ultimately subverted as it turned out someone else killed the victim and the younger brother just found the body.
Also discussed in "The Fifth Bullet", when the team briefly believed that amnesic Jeremy Prestwick was guilty of murder; the team were obligated to arrest him based on the available evidence, but Castle in particular mused that it was unfair that Jeremy be sentenced for something he didn't even remember doing.

In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., most everyone who goes through the TAHITI process comes back as a nice person. Granted, most everyone who S.H.I.E.L.D. puts through it are generally good people to begin with, and it's only used to give people a new chance at life, without the baggage that comes from the terrible things they've done.

In Fringe, Walter is missing pieces of his brain and has many childlike habits—particularly his affection for sweets—as well as later trying to re-learn to be independent. While he seems to remember quite a lot of wrong things he's done, it falls under this trope because he becomes a Jerkass when briefly reunited with those pieces of his brain and another character states that he's a better person and a better father with the damage.

In Heroes, this happens to Nathan for a few episodes in Season 4. What's really confusing is that everyone else thinks it's happened to Sylar, whose body currently houses Nathan's mind. note Details: The body usually looks like Nathan because he's unconsciously using Sylar's shapeshifting power to make it so. But the attack that gave him amnesia also knocked him out, making his body revert to normal. Since he woke up unaware of who he was, he still has Sylar's default appearance. The Carnival believes he has amnesia, the cops suspect he's faking, but everyone thinks he's Sylar. Only the audience can recognize the few memories he recovers as Nathan's. note Even more confusingly, Sylar's memories are still in there even though his mind isn't. One of the carnies uses his power to dig up images of Sylar's victims; this might have triggered something for a real amnesiac Sylar, but naturally it just freaks Nathan out!

In the fangame Touhou Mother, Porky loses his memories when he lands in Gensokyo. He's actually a decent person during this period, and makes particular friends with Marisa. Then he gets his memories back and almost immediately begins taking over Gensokyo, becoming the game's Big Bad.

Ben Chang of Community claims to be suffering from 'Changnesia' for the duration of season four, presenting himself as the confused and harmless amnesic Kevin. This convinces nearly everyone to let him off the fact that he briefly took over the school via armed coup. When Chang admits he faked the whole thing, he finally gets brought to justice...sort of.

John Yesterday is fairly sweet-natured and romantic if somewhat morose due to his amnesia...but this trope comes fully into effect when you consider his past lives as the demented Choke and the murderous Satanic cultist Miguel. Possibly a Justified Trope considering Choke was a Knight Templar and Miguel had problems with the cult sacrificing a child.

The Amnesiac starts out as this in every game of Town of Salem. Whether he stays that way or not depends on what role he picks.

Similarly to Terra, Yotsuyu in Final Fantasy XIV loses her memory as the deadly and sadistic acting viceroy of Doma and takes up a childlike attitude as "Tsuyu", under the watchful eye of the aging samurai Gosetsu. A lot of hemming and hawing happen with the heroes as she was a dangerous person, made clear when she wanders into a village and they all react in horror. Even more so is that her brother Asahi coming to pick her back up to return her to Garlemald. Sadly, Asahi uses Yotsuyu in a cruel attempt to dash the Populares faction's attempt to end the Garlean Empire's warmongering ways and try to regain Doma.

In Kamen Rider Build, the titular hero Sento Kiryu is a Science Hero (and something of an Insufferable Genius), and his Quest for Identity makes up the first major arc of the story. He eventually discovers that he was originally Takumi Katsuragi, "The Demon Scientist" who performed human experiments to create Super Soldiers for the government. This actually puts Sento through a Heroic BSoD, but he gets brought out of it when The Lancer Ryuga (who has plenty of legitimate reasons to hate Katsuragi) says that the person he used to be isn't as important as the hero he is now. Ultimately subverted as it's revealed that Katsuragi was actually a well-intentioned (if arrogant and cynical) person and his reputation as an amoral monster was undeserved.

Cal Leandros gets bitten by a monster that gives him amnesia in Blackout, but it's an interesting case. He immediately figures out he's a morally ambiguous 'killer' and rolls with it, but once he gets reintroduced to his life he is very disturbed by a photograph of himself from before. Most of the book deals with his struggle between wondering if he should stay amnesiac and moral, or try to regain his memories and become who he was before. When he realizes the latter will allow him to protect Niko better, he barely even hesitates restoring himself.

It really, really looked like this trope would be used to get Iron Man off the hook for his actions in Civil War. Tony ends up having to restore his brain from a backup which he made before the registration crisis. But to his credit, he refuses to use this as an excuse — he may not remember the decisions he made, but he wasn't a different person when he made them.

Subverted with Supergirl in The Supergirl from Krypton. Kara is a pretty innocent, naive, scared teenager that cannot remember anything of her past. Batman suspects that her innocence may be an act, especially after Darkseid kidnaps her and brainwashes her. After being rescued Kara also wonders what kind of person she was. When some of her memories appear to return, they are pretty terrible and she believes she was a bad person before losing her memory. However, she eventually got her real memories back, which proved she was always a good, well-meaning girl.

Played straight in the story, later invoked by the Daltons in the Lucky Luke story "L'Amnesie des Daltons": on seeing an amnesiac inmate be freed, they decide to pass off as amnesiac themselves in order to leave the prison. Averell becomes genuinely amnesiac after a Tap on the Head, and matters are complicated when the local governor decides to send them back to prison for breaking the law by any means necessary: encouraging them to rob banks and trains.

Joshua Christopher from Chrono Crusade has this happen to him in the anime version—despite being 15, the insanity caused by Chrono's horns make him forget most of his backstory, and he even seems unaware that he's grown older and still acts like a child the majority of the time. In the end, he loses the horns and becomes sane again—but forgets even MORE of his past than he did before and becomes even more childlike!

Nana, who suffers from "extreme amnesia", from Tripeace is extremely innocent, to the point that he doesn't even know what war is. This is in contrast to Fox, whose personality before the amnesia is highly cynical and cold.

Kamen Rider:
In Kamen Rider Kiva: the protagonists meet and befriend an amnesiac, childish, and somewhat clumsy Gentle Giant whom they end up nicknaming "Dai-chan" (effectively, "Mister Big"). When "Dai-chan" recovers his memories, however, all of his innocence is destroyed by the revelation that he is actually the fangire Rook, a merciless mass murderer who makes a game out of killing as many people as he can in a set time limit, and is solely responsible for at least one genocide. Potentially the only remaining vestige of his nice-guy side is his final character arc, where he abruptly decides to do good deeds in the hopes of getting into Heaven.
In Kamen Rider Build, the titular hero Sento Kiryu is a Science Hero (and something of an Insufferable Genius), and his Quest for Identity makes up the first major arc of the story. He eventually discovers that he was originally Takumi Katsuragi, "The Demon Scientist" who performed human experiments to create Super Soldiers for the government. This actually puts Sento through a Heroic BSoD, but he gets brought out of it when The Lancer Ryuga (who has plenty of legitimate reasons to hate Katsuragi) says that the person he used to be isn't as important as the hero he is now. Ultimately subverted as it's revealed that Katsuragi was actually a well-intentioned (if arrogant and cynical) person and his reputation as an amoral monster was undeserved.

During the events of "Oblivio" in The One to Make It Stay, an amnesiac Chat Noir sees evidence that his crush already has a boyfriend and accepts this, only confessing his own feelings to Ladybug so that he can get them off his chest. Naturally, he has no idea that his regular self has no problem making his feelings for Ladybug known, nor that he refuses to take no for an answer.

In the Red Axe quest series' finale in RuneScape, the player finds and defeats the Ogre shaman that had been manipulated into brainwashing many dwarves into Chaos dwarves over the years, the player is then given the chance to kill him for his crimes or to leave it alive. If the player lets him go, afterwards the shaman can be found in Gu'Tanoth, having given himself amnesia to forget about his past and living a normal ogre life.

Terra of Final Fantasy VI has no memories but her name and is a Technical Pacifist and The Ingenue. She had previously been used as a living weapon by The Empire and initially must flee the town she doesn't remember attacking. Locke and Edgar make a point of telling people who resent her that she shouldn't be held responsible for acts she doesn't remember and was mind-controlled into committing.

Death Note: Light arranges things so that he forgets that he is Kira. Once L is convinced, he is entirely cooperative and wants to help L catch Kira until his memories are restored. Light was banking on his amnesiac self doing so to clear his own (and Misa's) names, since apparently his guilty self is not convincing enough to divert L's suspicions. It backfires slightly in that, upon losing his memory, Light's entire demeanor takes a conspicuous one-eighty, which makes L similarly suspicious; still, it convinces everyone else, which is more than enough for the plan to work.

Once the vampire Herik was resurrected in Being Human (UK) it was as an amnesiac because the ritual wasn't performed by his Familiar who safeguarded his memories. As a result he's completely free of sin, to the point that crosses and stars of David have no effect on him. Of course, being a vampire he has a Horror Hunger all the same, and being an amnesiac he has no context for what's wrong with him.

Deconstructed in an episode of NCIS: A woman is brought into a hospital with amnesia, remembering nothing except that a bomb is going to be set off somewhere. The NCIS team comes in to investigate the claim and figure out where the bomb is. Obviously, the woman is their key witness in this regard and they treat her as an innocent victim. Turns out, she was part of the conspiracy to set the bomb in the first place. The minute her memories come back, she continues trying to carry out the original plan.

While not complete amnesia (he still remembers his name and bits from his past), this is how Mammon is treated by his followers in Kill Six Billion Demons. He's done horrible things in the name of greed, but now that he's millenia old and starting to lose his mind a bit, he's abandonned much of his worst traits, now acting more like a semi-senile, kind grandfather rather that the power-hungry, greedy god he was.

The Dolls of Dollhouse, having no memory, are purposely programmed to fit this trope until "imprinted". They're naïve, innocent, and devoid of sexual desires... so when some of them start exhibiting traits that break these rules, you know something is wrong.

When she ends up attacking Luffy over some food he had eaten that she wanted, it was actually because she wanted to share it with some poor villagers that had helped her when she washed ashore.

The entire premise of the Reborn Trilogy, in which Darth Vader suffers amnesia in a TIE-fighter crash and is captured by the Alliance. The leaders of the Alliance want to accept him among their numbers in full belief of this trope, a move that's quite controversial but is fully accepted by Vader himself, who knows of his crimes (even if he doesn't remember them) and wants to do penance for them.

In Planescape: Torment, the protagonist, The Nameless One, plays this trope straight, inverts it, goes sideways, and wanders all over. The Nameless One is an immortal who, each time he dies, suffers some form of memory adjustment. Sometimes the shock of death may recover lost memories, sometimes a particularly brutal or nasty death may result in the complete reset of his entire mind, altering his core behavior and personality at a fundamental level. One life, he might be a heroic Knight in Shining Armor, the next, he could pass the Moral Event Horizon. Though he may be innocent in terms of knowledge of at the time of reincarnation of previous wrongs done in former lives, there are those who would argue that point. Regardless, he is both innocent, guilty, and everything in between amidst dozens, or possibly hundreds of past lives worth of sins and virtues.
Ultimately, at the end of the game, you discover that this trope does not hold true for you. The First Incarnation's crime(s), whatever they may have been, were so terrible that the Nameless One's soul has earned an express ticket to the Lower Planes upon death, no matter what else he may have done with his other lives in-between. It says something that the First Incarnation implies he sought immortality just to have enough time to atone for his misdeeds... And then the nature of his immortality only made things worse.

It seems to be the case with Theo Adam in the short-lived Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam, when Black Adam is left as a teenager with little else to his memory aside for "he is 14 years old. And likes unicorns and blowing bubbles", as a part of an order to blank his memory of Shazam. However since Shazam is most of his life the memory-wipe leaves him a little... off in the local children's home. It dosent stick, but it's the last time we see him for a while and for a kids comic is a little twisted.

In Code Geass, C. C. loses most of her memory, becoming the sweet, innocentnote "I know how to handle corpses!", illiterate, medieval child she was before receiving her Geass.
From the same series, Villetta goes through this earlier on. She's a knight of Britannia's Purist Faction, and as such, she's deeply racist against the Japanese and is willing to frame Suzaku, one of her own allies, in order to further her political agenda. After a brush with death, she loses her memories, becoming extremely innocent. She's nursed back to health by Ougi, a member of the Japanese resistance, and winds up in a relationship with him, not realizing he's one of her enemies, and not caring that he's Japanese. Shit hits the fan when she gets her memories back.
Averted in the Akito the Exiled OVA, in which Lelouch is brainwashed to serve the Britannian Emperor (whom he loathes and wants dead) with complete and utter loyalty, while leaving his cleverness, ruthlessness and cunning. The result is the new Imperial Military Advisor, Lord Julius Kingsley, who is everything Lelouch despises; he carries out multiple aircraft bombings throughout the territory of Euro Britannia, each with the approximate strength of a F.L.E.I.J.A. nuclear warhead, then initiates massive war strikes with absolutely no concern for the massive loss of civilian life, enough to halt his fellow Britannian war leaders in their tracks.

Similarly to Terra, Yotsuyu in Final Fantasy XIV loses her memory as the deadly and sadistic acting viceroy of Doma and takes up a childlike attitude as "Tsuyu", under the watchful eye of the aging samurai Gosetsu. A lot of hemming and hawing happen with the heroes as she was a dangerous person, made clear when she wanders into a village and they all react in horror. Even more so is that her brother Asahi coming to pick her back up to return her to Garlemald. Sadly, Asahi uses Yotsuyu in a cruel attempt to dash the Populares faction's attempt to end the Garlean Empire's warmongering ways and try to regain Doma.

In What If?, this trope applies to Lloyd (who was once Cypher) to a degree; Lloyd might be a fully developed human being, but Thalia/Trinity argues that Neo shouldn’t kill him because Lloyd genuinely doesn’t remember committing any of Cypher’s crimes (although he ends up killing Lloyd anyway when an Agent takes control of Lloyd’s body).

In issue 5 of Sonic the Hedgehog (IDW), Sonic and his friends come across Dr. Eggman, who lost his memory after the final battle of Sonic Forces and is living under the name of Mr. Tinker. As Mr. Tinker, Eggman is the exact opposite of his usual self: a humble and modest Nice Guy and Friend to All Children who enjoys helping people. Sonic even decides to let him be and go about his new life. Sadly, that all comes to an end when Dr. Starline tracks Eggman down and brings his memory back, restoring him to his old villainous self again.

Harley Quinn (2019) has an especially sad example: it turns out the Joker didn't die, but lost his previous memory and personalty, making him a normal person and a pretty Nice Guy to boot. Unfortunately, Harley ends up having to turn him back into the Joker as his new form can't remember where he left this book with the Justice League trapped in it. At the end of the episode, Harley's very clearly Trying Not to Cry as she pushes him in.

Doctor Who:
The Eighth Doctor is easily excited and distracted and an Innocent Alien in contrast to most of his other selves. This seems to be a result of the amnesia which affects him for most of his first stories.
Professor Yana in "Utopia" is a compassionate, brilliant and kindly Mad Scientist until he regains his memories of who he actually is. Oh dear.
"The Beast Below": Averted; the Doctor holds Amy and Liz 10 responsible for choosing to forget the Star Whale's torment even though they no longer have any memory of it.

The Eighth Doctor, continuing from his characterization as stated below, can be very child-like in his fascination with the world, as well as his fear of the universe he spent a century trying to return to. In this case, he also falls under Amnesiac Dissonance, given that the reason he fears the universe is that he also fears himself, and what he did that caused him to lose his memory in the first place.

In Kamen Rider Kiva: the protagonists meet and befriend an amnesiac, childish, and somewhat clumsy Gentle Giant whom they end up nicknaming "Dai-chan" (effectively, "Mister Big"). When "Dai-chan" recovers his memories, however, all of his innocence is destroyed by the revelation that he is actually the fangire Rook, a merciless mass murderer who makes a game out of killing as many people as he can in a set time limit, and is solely responsible for at least one genocide. Potentially the only remaining vestige of his nice-guy side is his final character arc, where he abruptly decides to do good deeds in the hopes of getting into Heaven.

In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Tabula Rasa", the main characters all get Laser-Guided Amnesia due to a spell cast by Willow. This trope comes into play with Spike—as a vampire, he has no soul and thus literally no sense of innate morality, and only avoids killing people because he has a Restraining Bolt. Without his memories you would assume that his amoral instincts would take over, but no, even when he discovers that he's a vampire he assumes that he's a good one.

Lucy From Elfen Lied: pre-amnesia, she was basically something between Ax-Crazy Yandere and Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds. Post-amnesia, she's The Ingenue and an Innocent Fanservice Girl who has to be taught how to take off her clothes. When she eventually gets her memories back, things get nastier.

Fire Emblem Awakening:
Morgan (the avatar's child) is an amnesiac who forgot everything from their past besides stuff about their father/mother. They're bubbly and happy and well-liked, although no one knows a thing about them.
The Avatar may count as well. We don't know what they were like before their mind got wiped, but we do know that they made a very different choice in the timeline where they didn't get amnesia.

Subverted and Deconstructed like crazy on an episode of Family Guy, where Peter loses all his life memories and thus is rendered childlike. Lois eventually teaches him sex since they're husband and wife, and sex is a beautiful expression of love and commitment. Peter decides "sex feels great!" and proceeds to sleep around on her. When Lois protest that he's supposed to just sleep with her because they're married, he thinks that's a stupid idea because sex feels great, and thus (like a child) he feels he should be able to enjoy it with whomever he wants, whenever he wants. He also goes around acting like an excessively hedonistic, entitled Manchild. When he gains his memories back, the family is relieved, and he apologizes to Lois for cheating on her since he was an amnesiac at the time, and thus he didn't know any better.

An issue of the The Transformers comics had Starscream lose his memories in a freak accident once. Optimus considered this as Starscream's chance to start over with a clean slate. But of course Status Quo Is God...

Samantha Who? is built on this trope. The idea that Sam could ever have been "Bad Sam" strains plausibility — she does good and bad things like anyone else, but she never comes close to the casual nastiness of her past self.

Babylon 5 episode "Passing Through Gethsemane" deals with this topic when a kind, pious monk is revealed to be a serial killer whose personality was erased and a kinder one with new memories was put in place. This is a regular punishment for capital crimes, set up in an earlier episode. The families of his victims did not believe he was innocent and came for revenge.
In an ironic twist, the man who triggered the monk's memory freely admitted to it, and was also given a memory wash, becoming another monk in the same order, in effect, his replacement.

the white chamber: Sarah may or may not be this, depending on how you play. Consider her pre-amnesia life that we see involved murdering the rest of the crew, you'd have to work to make her as bad as that.

Kirika from Noir possibly deconstructs this, as she's an amnesiac 15 year old girl who's extremely naive — who happens to be one of the deadliest assassins in the world. Her first memories upon waking up are finding a gun in her house and shortly after taking out a squad of Mooks sent to fight her, and much of her character arc revolves around finding out just how she learned these abilities.
