* ''Thrud The Barbarian'', a comic strip published in Games Workshop's ''White Dwarf'' magazine, once had the eponymous main character creating the pile and posing himself on it (with a woman clutching his leg). So he could have his passport picture taken (erh, painted)...

* There's a short story by TimothyZahn and Micheal A. Stackpole where [[XWingSeries Corran Horn]] works briefly with a disguised [[TheThrawnTrilogy Grand Admiral Thrawn]], and the subject of art comes up when Corran says the graffiti on walls they're passing isn't [[HoldYourHippogriffs the work of Venthan Chassu]], but it's more interesting than peeling Star Destroyer White. Pressed for his opinion, Corran mentions that he liked the early and middle works by Chassu, but the man's final work, ''Palpatine Triumphant'', was of Palpatine on a throne of mutilated bodies, and in the narration Corran adds that the most disturbing thing about it was the Emperor's expression of homicidal joy. Thrawn dryly says that his loss was a pity, thus implying that Chassu was killed for this depiction.

Potential ways to [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] this trope include [[HumanShield using the corpse]] [[BulletproofHumanShield as cover]], or surprise attacking anyone who goes over the corpses while you're on the other side of it. Or in some cases, [[BodyOfBodies creatures form themselves with a pile of corpses]].

* Done by the Saint of Killers in ''{{ComicBook/Preacher}}'', but since he's invulnerable and his guns cannot miss, run out or be anything other than lethal, the corpses pile up on either side of him, since the BigBad is sending them in to slow him down.
