** ''DueToTheDead/GameOfThrones''
[[/index]]



* ''Series/GameOfThrones'':
** This is a very important rite in Westeros.
** Ser Loras Tyrell stands vigil over [[spoiler:King Renly Baratheon's body, and remains near his beloved even as Tyrell bannermen are panicking to flee the area before Stannis' fleet arrives. It's revealed in a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-m1-xPObOLk deleted scene]] that Loras also buried Renly on his own, even as everyone around him panics to flee the area, which is a detail taken from the novels. Renly's corpse is dressed in the exact same outfit that he wore when he watched Loras joust, including the green brocade cloak which symbolized his commitment to Loras as his "bride." Loras must have commanded the Silent Sisters to clothe the body in this manner so that he can later lay Renly to rest as his beloved "wife."]]
** The dead of House Stark are buried beneath Winterfell in tombs adorned with their likeness. Even though he dislikes the catacombs, King Robert's first request upon arriving is to visit the tomb of his lost Lyanna.
** It is customary for knights to stand vigil over a deceased comrade or loved one. Ser Barristan Selmy is established as a man of dignity and compassion when he—one of the grandest knights in the realm—stands vigil for the insignificant Ser Hugh of the Vale because there was no one else.
** Despite sparse resources, Daenerys arranges a massive funeral pyre for Khal Drogo, though she has additional uses for the fire.
** Tyrion returns the remains of Ned Stark as a humane gesture as well as a political token of goodwill.
** House Tully is introduced during the VikingFuneral of their patriarch. King Robb even insists on interrupting his campaign, declaring his grandfather's funeral is more than just "a distraction."
** A fallen brother of the Night's Watch deserves a proper ceremony even knee-deep in hostile territory at the far end of the world. Rites include immolation and the traditional refrain "And now his watch is ended."
** Thoros relates how he prayed over Beric's body even though he'd long since stopped believing, "Because he was my friend, and he was dead, and they were the only words I had."
** Several scenes at the Wall in "The Children" are largely dedicated to toasting and sending off those killed in the previous episode.
** Since this trope is SeriousBusiness in Westeros, violation is a common way for characters to KickTheDog.
*** Joffrey likes to gloat over his victims' heads and present them to their loved ones. Even Cersei and Tywin are appalled by his conduct in this regard.
*** The Hound threatens to desecrate the corpse of anyone who wavers during the Battle of Blackwater.
*** The villainy of House Frey hits a new low when they savagely decapitate Robb Stark, swap his head with Grey Wind's, and parade the body around in front of his dying men on the battlefield, chanting their victim's battlecry in mockery. Soon after, some mooks who gloat about it get a karmic death at the hands of a vengeful loved one.
*** Tyrion murders his primary nemesis—a stickler for prestige—in the most undignified place.

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'':
** Batman can come across Crime Alley, the site of [[DeathByOriginStory his parents' murder]], and the player is given the option to pay their respects. If he does so, Batman kneels down and bows his head, as somber music plays in the background.
** At the end of the game, when Joker succumbs to his Titan poisoning and dies, Batman carries his body all the way out of Arkham City, placing it on the hood of a GCPD police car before leaving in silence.

*** ''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".

* Used tragically in ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack''. [[spoiler:When one of the [[TykeBomb Daughters of Aku]] is killed by Jack, the other Daughters drag her body outside the temple and... just leave it there to rot. "Death is failure". The fact that they don't care about each other is eventually proven to be their FatalFlaw.]]

* The plot of ''Film/TheKarateKidPartII'' starts when Miyagi gets a letter from Okinawa telling him his father is dying. When he and Daniel get there, Miyagi is confronted by his lifelong rival, Sato, who years ago had assumed Miyagi fled like a coward to avoid facing him, and still holds a grudge. however, this confrontation is interrupted by the issue at hand. Miyagi manages to speak to his father briefly, and his Sato is himself a little sad (having regarded the elder Miyagi as a mentor himself) so he sternly tells Miyagi he has three days to mourn before he comes to settle their grudge. (Unfortunately, Sato's nephew Chozen has quickly taken a dislike to Daniel, and gives him a lot of trouble in the meantime.)

* The Nobodies of ''KingdomHearts'', pitiable creatures who vanish into nothingness upon death, erected monuments called "Proof of Existence" in the deepest sanctum of their fortress, simply so they could be remembered. The fact these monuments are shaped like gravestones and slabs, bearing their owner's description and WeaponOfChoice, is no coincidence.

* 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]]).

* 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.
