* Subverted in an episode of ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''. A girl angrily remarks that her father is just a pile of ashes somewhere. John notices the significance of this, but it's not the ashes themselves. [[spoiler: She had earlier told him that she had picked out a grey suit for her father. He was still alive.]]

* ''Series/{{Dexter}}'' - The main villain in Season 4 keeps the ashes of his dead sister on his mantelpiece when he isn't scattering them next to the bodies of his victims. They're smashed by his long-suffering son in a fight. Additionally: the ashes of Dexter's real father are in a plastic ziplock bag. Dexter disperses them on a patch of grass in front of a bowling alley. They had great personal significance to Dexter's father, so this last scene is an aversion.
