* 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.

** A very heartwarming example happens in late season 3 when Arthur knights Lancelot, Elyan, Gwaine, and Percival to thank them for remaining loyal to him. Though this knighting is technically unofficial since Uther would never sanction commoners as knights, Arthur ends up taking over shortly thereafter and officially removes the "noble blood" prerequisite.

** There's an aspect of AccidentallyAccurate here, in that the "taps on the head" weren't always just light taps; historically, they were often hard enough to hurt. A noble warrior might not have been surprised to have the knighting taps hurt, any more than it would be surprising to someone in a fraternity hazing. But it doesn't seem as if WesternAnimation/BugsBunny knew any of this.

This is probably most well known in the public mind as the moment when a figure such as the true king, TheHighQueen or another knight taps the squire on the shoulders with the flat side of the blessed sword. Originally, any knight could make another. This power was slowly moved into the hands of [[BlueBlood great nobles]], and then finally reserved to the [[RoyalBlood Sovereign]] himself. The more formal a court, the fewer people will have the authority. Women did not in RealLife have the authority to dub a knight (not being knights themselves) until the authority rested in royal hands (in which case a woman could only create knights if she was the Sovereign).

Sovereign; sometimes even then it was expected for a knight to place his hand over the Queen's during the act of dubbing).
