** Many warriors from ''Warhammer''. The most prominent among those are Gorthor, who wears a fur cloak made of [[GenuineHumanHide the skins of beastmen shamans]] he killed (showing his badassitude, as well as his belief that gods are with him - he can freely kill a shaman and suffer no curse for it), and the ratmen warlord Queek headtaker who, showing courage unharacteristic for his race, loves single combat and goes to battle with an actual trophy rack on his back.

Crosses over occasionally with SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset, GenuineHumanHide, ShrunkenHead and HavingAHeart. Compare BattleTrophy, CollectorOfTheStrange, StalkerShrine, KitschCollection, DecapitationPresentation and PastVictimShowcase. TragicKeepsake is one of the few methods that this trope can be used by a good (but still creepy) character, carrying a bodypart of a loved one in their memory.

** Champions of Khorne collect skulls from their victims. These are usually piled up in some sort of a shrine, though many a champion carries a couple of favourites with himself, often by skewering them on some SpikesOfVillainy.

These are usually piled up in some sort of a shrine, though many a champion carries a couple of favourites with himself, often by skewering them on some SpikesOfVillainy. Orks do this as well, but for the opposite reason to Chaos: while Chaos warriors generally take these throphies as a sign of triumph, Orks do it to ''honour'' a great enemy since Orks think that only sufficiently powerful enemies have "earned" being placed on a throphy stick.

** If an unhappy dwarf gets the uncontrolled urge to create a Legendary Artifact, it may be a Fell or Macabre Mood. What does this mean? It means they ''cannibalize the nearest other dwarf for materials''. Yes, even mothers with infants and children. Enjoy being renowned among the dwarven lands for your legendary Dwarf Baby Bone Scepter, decorated with Dwarf Baby Leather and inlaid with Dwarf Baby Tooth depictions [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking of cheese]].

* Some of the items you can collect from fallen enemies in ''VideoGame/HyruleWarriors'' are questionable in nature, such as wrist bones from Stalmasters or wings from Aeralfos, but the most blatant example is the Moblin Flank; [[TwentyBearAsses that's right, you're slicing off the butt cheeks of dead Moblins for resources]]. Fi's Heels [[FridgeHorror are even more questionable in nature if you think about it]]; since she's a spirit and unlikely to have removable clothing, it's implied that you cut her legs off after defeating her. And then there's [[EyeScream Gohma's Lens]].
