* In ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'', the British Prime Minister rather stiffly insists to [[spoiler: Sharon Carter a.k.a. Agent 13]] that he be given the personal details of the two [=MI13=] Agents who likely died a horrible death and suffered an unspeakable fate post-mortem in order to give him the chance to escape, doing so in full knowledge of what would happen to them, so that he can ensure that they are suitably honoured. Specifically, with the Victoria Cross (the direct equivalent of the Medal of Honour and even more rarely awarded). This is made all the more remarkable by the fact that they are still technically running for their lives at this point.

* An episode of ''Series/BabylonFive'' showed the bodies of those killed in an attack being fired into the system's sun, while Commander Ivanova read off the names of the dead. Later, Vorlon ambassador Kosh is killed by the Shadows, and his living ship does something similar: after receiving its late master's effects, and unable to continue without him, it commits the remains ''and itself'' into the system's sun.

In chapter 4, when the Shepherds come across victims of a Risen massacre, Chrom insists that they give them a funeral pyre.pyre.
** In chapter 21, it's revealed that Chrom went so far as to give Gangrel a proper burial after beheading him, in order to honor Emmeryn's legacy. Robin admits to Lucina that after everything Gangrel did, none of the other Shepherds would have done the same; he himself would have gladly mounted Gangrel's head on a pike and paraded it through Ylisstol.

* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', it's said early on that the active six Pokémon limit was established due to a criminal only known as [[BadassArmy Twenty]] [[TheDreaded Gyarados]] [[TomTheDarkLord Bill]] that terrorized the coast of Johto forty years ago. A sidestory further expands on this, revealing that the one [[HeroicSacrifice who brought him down at the cost of his own life]] was an Elite Four trainer named Denki Tekina, who only used six Pokémon during his entire career, thus establishing the number from then on.

** Arkay, one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra and a member of the Nine Divines]], is known as the God of Life and Death. The Priests of Arkay oversee all funerary and burial rights, which include bestowing Arkay's Blessing and Law. These prevent the soul or body (respectively) of the deceased from being used in necromancy.

** Arkay, one of the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedra and a member of the Nine Divines]], is known as the God of Life and Death. The Priests of Arkay oversee all funerary and burial rights, which include bestowing Arkay's Blessing and Law. These prevent the soul or body (respectively) of the deceased from being used in necromancy. However, when Mannimarco [[DeityOfHumanOrigin ascended to godhood]] as the God of Worms during the Warp in the West event, he became a celestial body that orbits Arkay. When he eclipses Arkay, this protection is blocked, allowing Grand Soul Gems to be converted to Black Soul Gems which are capable of [[YourSoulIsMine trapping sapient souls]].
** Despite Arkay being one of the deities of their official religion, Imperial law was always a bit more flexible, considering the body and soul of a person to be possessions. This allowed them to be sold, traded, or willed away as any other property. Necromancy wasn't even illegal in the Septim Empire, as long as the dead being used was a willing volunteer.

* ''Series/TheWalkingDead''. The main characters make a point to honor their fallen friends, and treat the dead with respect. [[TheHeart Glenn]] in particular is a firm believer of this. If anyone they know becomes a Walker, putting them down is often treated as a moral obligation.
** In "Guts" several people chop up a Walker and spread its guts and blood on Rick and Glenn, in order to prevent other Walkers from detecting them. Rick makes a point to read the Walker's name from his driver license, muse on the type of man he might have been, and reminds everyone he was a person like them.
** "Wildfire": Following the attack on the Atlanta Camp, the Walkers that attacked them are thrown in a pile and burned. Their dead however are buried.
** "Nebraska": Sophia is given a proper burial along with Annette and Shaun Greene, but the rest of the bodies are burned.
-->'''Andrea:''' We bury the ones we love, and burn the rest.
** "Say the Word" features a funeral (complete with graves and crosses) for Lori, T-Dog, and Carol, the last of whom is actually still alive.
** "What Happened and What's Going On" has a funeral for Tyresse, with Father Gabriel performing a funeral ceremony, Rick personally digging a grave, and Tyresse's beanie left on the cross as a marker.

** In ''Turn Coat'' [[spoiler:Warden Donald Morgan]] dies officially as a traitor to the White Council. No one can attend his funeral for the political implications. Those who knew him best and know he allowed himself to be die with falsehoods smearing his name to protect the Council and people he cares for instead had a private wake where stories were told of him in a better light.



** The Canim people sing blood songs for those who have died. They also sing them to those who have taken the role of Hunter, the spies, assassins, and scouts of the Canim, as to the society they are now dead. This alleviates them from the bounds of honor and duty the living must follow.

They also sing them to those who have taken the role of Hunter, the spies, assassins, and scouts of the Canim, as to the society they are now dead. This alleviates them from the bounds of honor and duty the living must follow. When two die in battle taking down a powerful enemy, their brother, a fellow Hunter, doesn't even morn them. The hero Tavi realizes there is nothing to morn, for they died doing their duty and their sacrifices will save thousands if not millions of lives.
** The Aleran warriors who fight on the northern boarders against the powerful and deadly Ice Men are not laid to rest in the cold, hard ground. They are burned in a pyre so their bodies won't suffer the cold the hordes from the north inflicted upon them.



** In ''The Next Phase'' Ensign Ro, who is presumed dead after a transporter malfunction (but is just rendered invisible), worries that Picard will hold a Bajoran funeral, which include a funeral chat that goes on for two hours.
