At the end of the film Avengers: Infinity War, we see Thanos use the all of the infinity stones, including the stone of time. My question is does the stone of time erase the characters' memories?

It seems like it does, because Time Stone affects the whole person.

  • Hello! I believe Vision is an android and not a creature, which has lead to some confusion about your question! It would help greatly if you could edit your title and Q by correcting the terminology. Commented Nov 17, 2018 at 23:39

  • @DarthLocke I cite Vision just as an example.

  • @DarthLocke But I only have one line left "Does Time Stone affect on person's memory or not?". It will be really misunderstandable question.

"Does Time Stone affect on person's memory or not?"

It's likely that the entity directly affected (such as the Vision) would have no memory of highly localised time reversal affecting them. Recall that in Infinity War, the reversal is limited to just the Vision.

However, there are indications that certain individuals can remember what has happened to them but these tend to be magic related individuals.

In Doctor Strange during the battle in Hong Kong we see Strange reverse time and Wong is found impaled on a pipe.

As time is reversed he is lifted off the pipe (a reversal of being thrown on to it) and talks to Strange. Strange then magically allows him to move forward in time with him and Mordo while elsewhere time still runs backwards.

As Wong does so he looks back at the pipe as though he realises what has happened to him.
