* In ''Literature/DonQuixote'', this is parodied; the title character insists that [[ThePresentsWereNeverFromSanta an innkeeper (who he thinks is a castellan)]] knight him after he has watched his armor in the castle chapel -- that is, in the stable of the inn. (See also under ''Theatre''.) This shows that Literature/DonQuixote may be mad, but [[GenreSavvy he knows exactly how the ceremony must go]].

* ''RobinHood'' is knighted by [[UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionHeart King Richard]] after the events of many versions of the legend. In the versions where he ''isn't'', it's usually because he was already "Sir Robin of Locksley" (or even "Robert, Earl of Huntingdon") before the story started, so he just gets his title ''back''.

* In ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance]]'', [[KnightErrant Sora]] gets this in [[WesternAnimation/MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers Country of the Musketeers]] from [[WesternAnimation/MinnieMouse Princess Minnie]], being named a Royal Musketeer officially at the conclusion of that world's story. That said, given that it is [[TimeTravel in the King's past]], but nonetheless still in [[DreamLand the Sleeping Worlds]], whether or not this title was actually given in that time period is uncertain.

* In ''{{Exiern}}'' King Urtica decides to [[http://www.exiern.com/?p=1849 dispense with the ceremony]], and simply to declare Tiffany a knight of the realm. He also decides to dispense with any threats of poisoning if she refuses too, isn't that nice of him.

** Pelleas appoints Micaiah as General of the Daein Army in ''Radiant Dawn'', but the ceremony (and the result) is much the same.

* ''WesternAnimation/StarVsTheForcesOfEvil'': In "Scent of a Hoodie", King River declares Marco Diaz a Knight of Mewni as thanks for his heroism and gives him a cape. However, in "Lint Catcher", when he tries to pull rank with the other knights, they refuse to acknowledge him. It turns out River was only humoring him and didn't think Marco would take him seriously, and the cape was just an old blanket. If Marco truly wants to be a knight, he must endure months or years of training as a squire.

Then, Star gives Marco the equivalent of a knighting ceremony (with a hilariously long oath) to make him her squire.

* ''Series/TheBeverlyHillbillies'': In "War of the Roses", Jethro gets knighted by Jane Hathaway masquerading as UsefulNotes/ElizabethI. The honor is given as Jethro had vanquished Colonel Dumbarton of the neighboring castle. At the same ceremony, Granny is assured by "The Queen" that the stain on the family honor will be rectified, and that everyone in England will know that the Clampett Clan ''did not'' run out on the "War of the Roses. Jed Clampett also takes the opportunity to return the deed to Canada - having purchased the country from the Queen's minister a few episodes before. Believe it or not, this all MakesSenseInContext.

Though she is so somber because of her own [[InadequateInheritor insecurities]] and [[InferioritySuperiorityComplex jealousy of Link's apparent ease in meeting his destiny]] during the ceremony that Daruk admits that she's "making it sound like we've already lost" against Ganon.

** While not actually a knighting ceremony, Link receiving his licence to become a Royal Engineer in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSpiritTracks'' is treated the same way, complete with Princess Zelda personally handing him his certificate. Trains are SeriousBusiness in New Hyrule.

* In ''FanFic/HarmonyTheory'' Rainbow Dash gets knighted after helping defeat [[spoiler: Nightmare Umbra.]] However this is done not as a reward, but as a political tactic to draw attention away from [[spoiler: Star Fall's]] engagement to the prince. In this universe, knighthood is another form of nobility, and giving the knight an estate to manage is included in the ceremony.
* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', this happens twice - first when Chrysalis makes her lawyer Estermann formally pledge loyalty to her in her jail cell, and later when [[spoiler:Princess Luna takes the ICMP investigator Edith Saric (almost literally) under her wing as she is being booted out of the UN mission]]. The parallels are very apparent, particularly when the to-be-knight is told to kneel and hesitates.
