It also makes a very impressive and gloomy set pieces, as your heroes walk in-between the giant skeletons. Besides the protagonists, of course, it's rare for any other living animals to be in such a place. If they are, however, expect nasty scavenging creatures, like vultures or hyenas.[[note]][[RealityIsUnrealistic Neither of these are actually scavengers.]][[/note]]

* Literature/SinbadTheSailor found one on one of his seven voyages. Unlike most modern stories that invoke this trope, Sinbad does not seek to protect the site, but instead reports it's location to the locals, whose economy was dependent on the ivory trade but had been losing far too many people while hunting elephants. The graveyard allowed them to gather ivory for sale far more safely than trying to track and kill an elephant with bows and spears.

* 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 -- when was the last time you heard of a henchman living to old age?]]

* An early comic of ''GrooTheWanderer'' plays this for laughs, with Groo following a wheezing, doddery old elephant in the hope of a meal, and finding a huge field of elephant bones. Since he's not quite as stupid as he later becomes, Groo is excited at finding tons of ivory, but his celebration is cut short when [[spoiler:the dying elephant falls on him. Just how he survives, and]] why he doesn't get the ivory after all, is never explained.
