* Military funeral traditions are about as old as militaries. In the West, various tributes to fallen warriors persist such as the Riderless Horse (for colonels and other important leaders) and the Missing Man Formation (for pilots).

* The three most common ways of showing dues to the dead are the moment of silence(such as the one All Pro Wrestling had in 2011 for Gulf Coast Wrestling.com's Bob Liddil), the ten bell salute (such as the one that opened ''Welcome To The Wrestling/{{Combat Zone|Wrestling}}'' in 2016) and the minute of applause (such as for Flor De Loto [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lCKaMMEin38 in LLF]]).

* Video packages for the recently deceased are also fairly common, the World Wrestling League doing so for both important figures in their history like Perro Aguayo Jr and even those who never worked for them like Hayabusa and Wrestling/{{Chyna}}.[[/folder]]

* A fallen boxer is sometimes remembered by what's known as "The Final Ten Count". The announcer states the memorial and cues the timekeeper, who then rings the bell ten times to signify the fighter falling for the last time.

*** ''StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' touched on Klingon death customs a couple times. First, a Klingon can engage in an act of glory to "pay the way" for one who would not otherwise be worthy of Sto-vo-kor (Worf did this for his late wife Jadzia[[note]]by successfully destroying a sizable Jem'hadar base[[/note]]; she normally wouldn't be worthy because she was a Trill). A later episode featured Kor, an old Klingon warrior who wanted to find a way to avoid dying in dotage; he manages to do so by taking Worf's place in a suicide mission. His sacrifice clears the way for a convoy of Klingons to escape. So Martok (who ''hated'' Kor in life) begrudgingly gives him due: opening a bottle of bloodwine and issuing a toast to "a noble warrior to the end".

* In Creator/{{Orson Scott Card}}'s short story, "Holy", a Terran trade diplomat finds himself tasked to complete the death rite of an alien chieftain he is traveling with, namely taking the contents of the man's bowels to the top of the highest mountain. While being pursued by hostile rival tribes. Without use of his technology.

** In ''Count To A Trillion'', this is the one element of religion that Menelaus admires. He reads a future without religion, and his only serious objection is how to conduct a proper funeral without someone to say something proper over the grave.

** Despite having been described in-universe as the most hated god on Mount Olympus, it's revealed in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarIII'' that the other Olympians nonetheless gave Ares a proper resting place, freeing his corpse in ice in the aptly-named Tomb of Ares.
** As also revealed in ''III'', after Kratos killed Persephone in ''VideoGame/GodOfWarChainsOfOlympus'', Hades buried her in a decorated coffin, despite the fact that she hated her forced marriage to Hades so much that [[SuicidalCosmicTemperTantrum she was willing to destroy the entire world just to be free of it]].

* ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' Space Marines go to great lengths to recover their dead brothers, and the individual chapters have additional and often elaborate practices to remember their dead. However, the body itself is not really important, the important things are the progenoid glands, that generate and store the geneseed necessary to create new Space Marines, and the expensive and in some cases outright irreplaceable weapons and armor.

** Use of the heroic variant was once used to display Abaddon the Despoiler's respect for a WorthyOpponent. The Black Legion and the Blood Angels fought on a planet called Mackan, with the Blood Angels suffering catastrophic losses. One of the few survivors, [[BadassPreacher Reclusiarch]] Jorus, survived in the wilderness with his Death Company, before launching a surprise attack on Abaddon's camp where he slaughtered Abaddon's honor guard and got into combat with the Despoiler himself. When the Black Legion left Mackan, they desecrated the bodies of hundreds of Blood Angels, with one exception: the bodies of Reclusiarch Jorus and the Death Company were unharmed, seated upon thrones made from the armor of the Black Legion troops they had slain that night.
