** Comicbook/{{X 23}} also honors Logan after his death. First by dyeing her forelocks blue and gold, his most iconic colors, as a tribute. Later [[LegacyCharacter she takes up the Wolverine name herself]], with this as part of the reason.

** In another Literature/HorusHeresy novel, [[EvenEvilHasStandards Horus is actually somewhat disgusted]] when Fulgrim presents him with the severed head of Ferrus Manus.

** While an Ork's general attitude to a corpse of pretty much any kind is either laughter or hunger, they make sure to honour particularly {{Worthy Opponent}}s. Of course, Orks being Orks, they do this by taking the deceased's head, sticking it on a pole, and wearing it into battle.

** One of the first conversations in [[VideoGame/MassEffect1 the first game]] is about this, with the Paragon option being "Jenkins deserves a proper burial" and the Renegade being "leave him", although no matter what response you give, you're a bit too busy with the [[KillerRobot Geth]] trying to shoot you to give Jenkins a proper funeral at this stage.

* ''Comicbook/TheSandman'' finale ''The Wake'' revolves around Morpheus' funeral. In an earlier story, Destruction visited the necropolis where the sacraments used to acknowledge the passing of an incarnation of an Endless are preserved. He tells one of the necropolis' residents a story of a previous necropolis which once stood in the same place that had lost its respect for the dead and treated their duties as a job and nothing more. Their disrespect towards the Endless when they tried to collect sacraments for the first Despair's funeral provoked the Endless into destroying their city, and the new necropolis was eventually built over the site. The new necropolis' funeral workers are considerably more respectful to the point of [[InsistentTerminology always referring to the dead as "clients" and not just "bodies".]] When the Endless visit this necropolis to receive the sacraments for Morpheus' funeral, the sacraments are collected with no fuss at all.

** In ''TheSilmarillion'', we have such examples as [[spoiler: Fingon]]'s body being beating into the ground even after he dies, and [[spoiler:Finduilas']] body being pinned to a tree for her rescuers to find. And after the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, the bodies of the fallen Men and Elves are piled up into a hill as a monument to Morgoth's victory.

** From the XWingSeries, the New Republic sometimes shoots dead servicemen into stars. Survivors of Alderaan often shoot their dead into the asteroid field that is all that remains of their home planet. Corellians, during the planet's isolationist era, while unable to return home, would cremate their dead, pressing the ashes into diamonds. Which are then set into the walls of a building on Courscant, to recreate the star field as seen over their homeworld.
