* In ''LegendOfTheFiveRings'', after Hida Sukune lost the First Battle of Beiden Pass, his father Hida Kisada, Daimyo of the Crab Clan, had him executed and his corpse nailed to the Terrible Standard of Fu Leng. The card text of the Standard even lets you kill Sukune during a game to give the Standard a Force bonus.

* In ''VideoGame/OneNightAtFlumptys 2'', [[Disney/WinnieThePooh Piglet]] is gruesomely nailed and vivisected in the room you're in. To make matters worse, [[spoiler:he has a habit of suddenly turning his head and smiling at you. [[FateWorseThanDeath Yeesh]].]]

* This is a surprisingly common practice among Roman Catholics. It's believed that some saints's bodies are [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incorruptibility incorruptible]], meaning that they either don't decay or do so veeeeery slowly thanks to Divine Intervention; if the corpse of a Servant of God/Venerable/Blessed/Saint is believed to fit in the criteria, chances are it'll be exhibited in a shrine for everyone to see. Aside of Bernadette's case, we have [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pio_of_Pietrelcina Saint Pio of Petrelcina]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clare_of_Assisi Saint Clare of Assisi]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Vianney Saint John Vianney]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alphonsus_Maria_de_Liguori Saint alphonsus Maria de Liguori]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joaquina_Vedruna_de_Mas Saint Joaquina Vedruna]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rita_of_Cascia Saint Rita of Cascia]], etc.

* Noob-Smoke's bio in MortalKombat Deception states that Noob Saibot found Smoke's deactivated cyborg body in Shao Kahn's trophy room, where the late emperor kept the cyborg assassin as a memento from his Earthrealm invasion.

* In ''ComicBook/SinCity'', serial killer Kevin mounted the severed heads of six of the prostitutes he's murdered and eaten on plaques and hung them on the wall. This may have been inspired by the already creepy as hell [[http://i.huffpost.com/gen/254621/STUFFED-GIRLS-HEADS.jpg "Stuffed" Girl's Heads]] ad.

* One remarkable TearJerker moment from ''Manga/RurouniKenshin'' comes from [[TheLancer Sanosuke Sagara's]] flashback as a child, when he was adopted by [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sekihotai Sekihoutai]] leader [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sagara_Sozo Sagara Souzou]] (here given a HistoricalHeroUpgrade and HistoricalBeautyUpdate). After the Sekihōtai was accused of being a "false army" by the Restoration government of the Ishin Shishi (making them the fall guys for the failure of the government in service delivery), they were executed in the mountains, with Sagara's head being chopped off and displayed in public. It would be Sanosuke's [[FreudianExcuse excuse]] to sabotage any Ishin Shishi he meets and live as hired muscle codenamed "Zanza," [[DefeatMeansFriendship until he meets]] [[TheHero ex-assassin Kenshin Himura]] and gets a WorldOfCardboardSpeech that makes him realize that this isn't what Sagara would've wanted for him.

** Memorably averted in the ''Jinchuu'' arc. It looks like it has been played straight by Kaoru, whose body was found PinnedToTheWall of the Kamiya dojo [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice with]] Enishi's {{BFS}}, but it turns out it was a "doll" made of corpses. The real Kaoru is still alive and a prisoner of Enishi.



* A quite nightmarish version happens in ''Manga/{{Basilisk}}''. [[spoiler: Gyoubu Kasumi is stabbed to death by Tenzen when he's merged with a wooden panel. Since his death doesn't allow for the corpse to be de-merged, the ''whole'' pannel is exhibited in the nearest port as a warning to the Kougas.]]
* In ''Manga/DetectiveConan'', more than one murder case involves the victim's corpse specifically arranged to this effect. I.e., a {{filler}} case has [[spoiler: a girl being first strangled to death, then placed on a sèance table with her arms outstretched [[CrucifiedHeroShot as if she was tied to a cross]].]]

A SubTrope of DueToTheDead. The motives of those who come to see do not have to match those of the characters who display the body; they can throw rotten eggs at a body exposed for reasons of respect, or lay flowers at one exposed as a criminal. Overlaps with PublicExecution, which is a primary method of getting the guy dead in the first place.
