** In another non-military example, the most decorated Olympian of all time, Micheal Phelps, occasionally poses with [[http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2016/0621/r94984_800x800_1-1.jpg many medals across his chest.]] Usually only those medals won at a single Games, however; if he ever tried to pose with ''all 28'' from his career, he wouldn't have enough body to hold them (and cutting it to only golds wouldn't help much, since 23 of those 28 are gold). Other highly-winning Olympians like Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles [[http://ftw.usatoday.com/2016/08/michael-phelps-had-to-teach-katie-ledecky-how-to-wear-multiple-medals also wear multiple medal stacks.]]

** In the second game, Blaise Debeste, one of only two prosecutors to actually ''wear'' his prosecutor's badge instead of keeping it in his pocket (the other being his son Sebastian), apparently decided to make up for everyone else in his profession by wearing about 30 of them at once.

# An officer that has so many medals nailed to their uniform that one would expect them to be a ranking general-grade officer, but they turn out to be only a field- or junior-grade officer. And yes, they earned them all ''the hard way''. In other words, someone who is ColonelBadass / MajorlyAwesome / TheCaptain that refuses to be promoted off the field, and has the medals as proof of their numerous {{badass}} achievements.

* ''VisualNovel/AceAttorneyInvestigationsMilesEdgeworth'':
** In the first game, [[spoiler:Quercus Alba]] is revealed to have a rather impressive one, once he [[spoiler:stops pretending to be a harmless, scatterbrained old man]] and reveals himself as the BigBad. Notably, he is fond of doing an AsideGlance directly into the camera with [[SmugSnake the smuggest expression possible]] while showing off how much his medals sparkle and shine.

* ''L'ami retrouvé'': The narrator's father, a Jewish WW1 veteran living in Germany, wakes up to find a Nazi thug hammering anti-Semetic posters on their front door. He changes into his full uniform (including the many medals he won), and plants himself at attention next to the thug. Intimidated, he leaves.
