"I don't…remember."
"I have erased that time. We shall never know."
―Anakin Skywalker, and the Father[src]

Memory rubbing was a Force technique that allowed an individual to use the Force to alter or erase both the memories and/or learned skills of another.[4]

On Mortis, the Father used this power to erase Anakin Skywalker's knowledge of his future as Darth Vader after he had learned it from the Son to tempt him to the dark side of the Force.[4]

Luke Skywalker used a similar technique while infiltrating a Dathomiri prison complex, using it to alter a pair of stormtroopers memories to forget their presence "for a couple of years".[8]

Jacen Solo learned this technique from the Fallanassi during his five-year journey of Force exploration after the Yuuzhan Vong War. He used it twice on Ben Skywalker, once to distort Ben's knowledge of his and Tenel Ka's newborn child, Allana, and a second to distort Ben's knowing of the truth that Brisha Syo was Dark Lady of the Sith Lumiya.[2]


Cade Skywalker used this technique on Darth Maladi during their confrontation at her lab on the planet Wayland to erase her memory of what she'd learned there. [7]
