** 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, with [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Mannimarco]]'s ascension as the God of Worms, his plane can "eclipse" Arkay's, during which Arkay's Blessing (the protection of souls) can be worked around by allowing for the creation of Black Soul Gems. Arkay's Law is an immutable law that prevents sanctified bodies from being used for {{Necromancy}}. Thus, any body properly buried by a priest observing the proper rituals is protected by Arkay's Law from being raised as undead.remains unmovable, however.

* ''Film/KingdomOfHeaven'': Balian's wife is denied Christian burial as a suicide. She's buried at the crossroads and beheaded. TruthInTelevision for the time. However, the priest really shouldn't have [[BerserkButton rubbed this in his face]].

* Most people in ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'' have a patchy understanding of death at best, since they're all robots of one stripe or another who can have their consciousness transferred to a new body (either by core transplant or network download) should their current body be destroyed. The only ones who can die permanently are resistance androids, and since they haven't had contact with humanity in thousands of years, their imitation of funeral rites is based on poorly-understood cultural remnants - something they admit openly, but they feel they have to do ''something'' to honor their fallen friends. It comes to a [[TearJerker heartbreaking]] point when [[spoiler:9S plants a flag made of the deceased 2B's blindfold in a field of Lunar Tear flowers, admitting out loud that he doesn't know why. The memorial is visible on the title screen from then on.]]

* In ''[[VideoGame/MightAndMagic Might & Magic X: Legacy]]'', Pirate King Crag Hack makes a HeroicSacrifice to weaken the BigBad so the player can slay him. At the epilogue of the main game, his funeral, where Governor Jon Morgan - his estranged son - gives the eulogy, is brief but sad:
-->'''Morgan:''' For some he was a pirate. A barbarian. A criminal. He was all of these things, but yet, he was so much more. To me, there's really only one word that fully captures who he was. Crag Hack was a hero. And a father.

** In ''Literature/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.

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. There's also a thwarted example. After (narrowly) killing Fingolfin, Morgoth ordered his werewolves to tear apart his body and eat it, only for Thorondor to swoop in and carry Fingolfin's body away to where it could be properly honored.
