So, the hero has just defeated a horde of {{mooks}}. So many mooks, in fact, that their corpses have been piling up under the hero's feet and formed a veritable ''mountain'' of bodies. What better way to celebrate this {{Badass}} display than to perform a VictoryPose atop said pile?

* Meng Yi, one of JackieChan's characters in the Hong Kong film, ''Film/TheMyth'', does the standing version of this during his YouShallNotPass scene. [[spoiler:Unfortunately, he goes beyond his limits before he could kill the last of the attacking rebels and he falls unconscious while standing, allowing one of the remaining rebels to climb up the mountain of corpses and cut off his head]].

* Another one for standing: in the CarlBarks story "Back to the Klondike," the young [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] defeats everyone in a bar, and [[http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l241/fonkaygarry/Uncle_Scrooge_Adv_26_14.jpg uses their unconscious bodies as a makeshift staircase to reach the balcony.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'' has the Boltons actually invoke this trope as a military strategy during the Battle of the Bastards. [[BadBoss Ramsay]] has his cavalry charge that of the Stark loyalists, and while the two groups are slaughtering each, has his archers keep firing into the mass, killing both [[WeHaveReserves his own men]] and the Starks', until enough are dead that they've created a literal wall of corpses. Then he has his infantry move in and surround the remaining Stark forces, boxing them in between an advancing wall of spears and said wall of corpses (and to make matters worse, his allied infantry is climbing over the wall from the other side). It works horrifically well, only ultimately failing due to [[spoiler: [[TheCavalry the Knights of the Vale]] showing up in time to [[BigDamnHeroes rout the Bolton forces from behind]]]].

* During the intermission in ''QuestForGloryII'', the hero's caravan is attacked by brigands. Just when you think the game is going to make you fight them, cut to the hero standing atop a pile of brigand and saurus corpses in the victory pose (pictured above).
