* The funeral of [[TheFlash Bart Allen]] (Impulse, Kid Flash, the Flash) was given a lot of attention in the Titans comic. That he came back a year or so later (as comic characters are wont to do) dampens it a bit, but doesn't cancel out the tearjerkers entirely... Especially since it involves watching the video he made, telling people how much he'd loved being Kid Flash and wanted to live up to his Grandfather's legacy - a video which is just a bit out of date, as he keeps talking to characters who died ''before'' Bart did.

* Compo's death in ''LastOfTheSummerWine'' got 2 episodes-worth of this. The more traditional funeral was in the second, but the first was probably the most moving. A selection of the people of Holmfirth stood on a hillside arranged to form the words 'See Ya Compo'. All the main characters were taken to the side of a nearby hill, and were visibly moved by the gesture, all the male characters removing their hats in tribute. Especially Cleggy.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': Tuuri's funeral, after she commits SucideBySea to keep [[ThePlague the Rash]] from killing her. Of the five other main characters, one was unable to stop the PlagueZombie that bit her because of negleted wound, another was one her very few suriving family members and noticed the PlagueZombie was in her vicinity a few moments too late and another was quite good friends with her (to the point that they were being shipped by part of the fandom). Among the two remaining, one of the is the NewMeat, who is most likely having to attend this kind of funeral for the first time.

* The entire first half - almost - of the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' episode "Hereafter" deals with Superman's apparent death and [[BuryingASubstitute the funeral held for him]]. Though he was not as dead as was thought.

* ''LostOdyssey'' has the funeral of Kaim's daughter, who dies not long after Kaim is reunited with her after thinking she'd died as a child. Unusual in that the preparations for the funeral, and the funeral itself are interactive, the player actually plays the funeral. If anything, that makes it even stronger.

**''Series/Daredevil2015'': Grotto, a lowly level Kitchen Irish grunt member killed by Frank Castle, gets a private memorial service at the start of "[[Recap/Daredevil2015S2E4PennyAndDime Penny and Dime]]". Only Matt, Karen and Foggy show up for the service, but it reminds us that the criminals that the Punisher kills are still human beings, and Matt and Karen take some level of solace in Father Lantom's eulogy as their individual searches for the Punisher progress.
**''Series/LukeCage2016'': After Pop is killed in the crossfire of an attempted hit on Chico, a funeral is held for him at Mount Olivet Baptist Church in Harlem, which is attended by Luke, Shades, Cottonmouth, Misty Knight, and a number of local residents. Luke, Cottonmouth, and Pop's son all give meaningful speeches about what Pop meant to them.

* The [[AuntDimity Pym sisters']] funeral is so heavily attended that TheVicar has to hook up loudpseakers (since St. George's is fulled over capacity) and the graves are marked with Day-Glo flags to keep people from falling into the holes. The New Testament readings an the closing hymn were favourites of theirs. Bree Pym introduces herself to the locals in her brash but brief funeral oration, and Rev. Bunting reads a message from the sisters to the villagers: "Dear friends and neighbours. If you fail to show our great-grandniece the same loving kindness you have always shown us, we will smite you."
