* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' mentions a "Marowak Graveyard" in a few of its Pokédex entries. Though it's a subversion as Marowaks aren't giant.

* Spoofed in ''{{Nodwick}}'', with the legend of the Henchmen's Graveyard, where old henchmen go to die, taking with them all the loot they can carry. [[spoiler:It turns out the Graveyard really does exist, but contains no loot -- the only henchman to ever die of natural causes died bankrupt.]]

* An elephant's graveyard features in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Flying Carpet''.

* An elephant's graveyard features in ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Flying Carpet''. Elephants visit it daily and trample any non-elephant who dares tread this sacred soil. The BigBad sends some goons to kidnap Cacophonix and dump him there, but [[spoiler:he's saved by the strong elephant odor imprinted on him by the weird treatment prescribed for his voice loss]].

* In ''Film/KongSkullIsland'', one of the important fight scenes takes place in a graveyard of giant monster bones, most notably, [[spoiler:the bones of Kong's parents]]. No one ever goes to that part of Skull Island because of how dangerous it is.

* ''Videogame/SunlessSea'' has the Gant Pole (gant being a FictionalColour), a place "where things go die", with not quite much of an explanation as to why or how, though some suspect [[BloodKnight the Chelonate's denizens]] may be involved. Since this is the Unterzee, the bones you find are KrakenAndLeviathan-sized, and you can sail through the ribcages of monsters too big to think about.

Once the Zubmariner expansion came out, it became possible to actually visit the place, and the fact there's a giant stone heart underwater right where the Pole is, and the fact that mauling zee-monsters to within an inch of their lives and then letting them come here to die is a perfectly viable way of delivering live creatures to the Heart's denizens, the mysteries only grew.
