* From ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''; the statue of town founder [[GeneralFailure Jubilation T.

* In Great Britain patriots and feminists would shame men into joining the army by awarding them a white feather as a symbol of cowardice. Although the practice dates back to the 18th century, this was mostly prevalent during World War I when the Order of the White Feather was formed to have women present men not in uniform with feathers. The campaign wasn't popular among soldiers due to public servants, veterans, and men on leave often being handed feathers by mistake. A few men were even DriventoSuicide by the shame.

* In ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED'', Mu La Flaga is given the nickname "Hawk of Endymion" in honor of his victory in the Endymion Crater on the Moon, namely destroying 5 GINNs with his Mobius ZERO. However, he knows its a formality and he hates the title because the Earth Alliance used it to cover up the fact that the battle ended when they set off a Cyclops System.

** In ''Cetaganda'', Miles is awarded the Cetagandan Order of Merit, the highest honor given by TheEmpire that is his planet's arch-enemy for most of the series. This is roughly the equivalent of an American officer during the Cold War being awarded Hero of the Soviet Union, First Class. However, when he puts on full-dress, he makes sure to ''wear'' it along with his other medals, since it puts other people ''intensely'' off-balance.
** Another purposeful type is shown at the Imperial Academy. Cadets are 'awarded' armbands to show that they've been killed or wounded in simulated exercises. Thus the absence of of said armbands is a symbol of status - and a sign that the teachers will be trying harder to 'kill' you the next time out.
** Later, when Aral gives Miles his lecture about the difference between honor and reputation, Aral points out that achieving great reputation while your honor lies broken at your feet isn't just distressing, it's soul-destroying. And Aral knows exactly what he's talking about, having [[PyrrhicVictory sacrificed a large number of innocents]] to save his nation from a psychopath.

* In one ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse story staring Huey, Duey, and Louie as the Junior Woodchucks, the trio builds a homemade raft, hoping to score brownie points; unfortunately, they break several safety rules by testing it in a river with rapid water, and quickly find this out for themselves. As they try to steer to safety, a wildfire starts, and the other Woodchucks are cut off from the road and blocked by said river, until the raft is jammed between some rocks; everyone is able to escape using it as a makeshift raft. The scoutmasters debate [[ArsonMurderAndLifesaving whether to punish or reward the trio]], until finally coming up with a unique award, the "Doubtful Medallion".
