Added DiffLines:

* Ziggzagged in ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''; most merit badges the Junior Woodchucks receive are ordinary ones, although they earn one for Law Enforcement by helping their uncle apprehend the Beagle Boys. One episode shows Webby - who has only one, Swimming - admiring all of Launchpad's badges, but noticing he lacks the Swimming one. (Naturally, this is a ChekovsGun; he can't swim, and she has to rescue him from drowning later.)

* In ''ComicBook/MoreThanMeetsTheEye,'' Rodimus invented Rodimus Stars as a little morale-booster, and hands them out for almost any reason. Even ''Whirl'' has one, showing how meaningless they are.

* There's a ''WebAnimation/GothamGirls'' webisode that has Harley Quinn and Batgirl use this gag for extreme humor value. Somehow a knot-tying merit badge in their world allows you to restrain an opponent head to toe in seconds.
** Well, if the younger scouts would PAY ATTENTION during Pioneering merit badge, (The real life equivalent) this might be closer to TruthInTelevision.
* The Boy Scouts, like everything else in Podcast/WelcomeToNightVale, eccentric at best and a force of pure evil at worst. Therefore, its not really a surprise that Cecil is able to keep the radio broadcast coming after nearly being shut down using his "Subversive Radio Host Badge".
** Incidentally, you can actually buy that patch on their official website.
** At one point, Cecil uses the skills he learned earning the "Advanced Siege Tactics Badge" to bust into a armored bunker.
** While no specific badges are named, the mentions we've got of the NV Girl Scouts suggests they're no different.

* ''TroopBeverlyHills'' has some fun with this one. Phyllis and her troop find no value in most of the traditionally woodsy official Wilderness Girl patches, but then Phyllis discovers a {{loophole|Abuse}}: she can custom-design her ''own'' patches! Soon the entire troop is decked out in merit patches for things like jewelry appraisal and "gardening with glamour." Naturally, the evil council leader declares all of these patches invalid when she finds out about it.

* In one episode of ''CampLazlo'', Scoutmaster Lumpus bemoans the failure of any of the Bean Scouts to achieve a single merit badge. Edward thens reveals that he has full set (having dishonestly bought them). We never find out a full list but it does include 'Motorcycle Maintenance'. Another episode mentions the 'Taxidermy' badge.
* Done in one episode of ''RenAndStimpy'' where the duo join up a Barrette Baret Girls camp (despite being boys), where their treated to a series of {{Amusing Injury}}s to gain badges for the most insane merits, such as (1) catching a snipe (which happens to be real, and extremely vicious), (2) flying (by falling over a gorge), falling on jacked rocks (while falling from said gorge), (3) drowning, (4) mutilation, (5) collecting badger eggs, and (5) bravery in the face of certain doom (done by Ren popping out of an ice-box of food yelling "ta-da!" while surrounded by a group of angry Elk Bear club members, who were [[BearsAreBadNews actually bears]])

* ''FanFic/BoyScoutsOneHalf'', an ElsewhereFic of ''RanmaOneHalf'' that follows a group of Jusenkyo cursed Boy Scouts living in Western Massachusetts, mostly avoids this trope. Several actual merit badges are mentioned, such as Archery, Citizenship In the Community, Collections, Communications, Farm Mechanics, Pioneering, and Theater. However, on one occasion a character (who happens to be a [[{{Main/SuperIntelligence}} super genius]]) mentions working on the Advanced Theoretical Quantum Astrophysics merit badge. This immediately [[{{LampshadeHanging}} lampshaded]] by one of the other characters, suspicious of such a badge actually existing.

* The Fireside Girls of ''PhineasAndFerb'', whose exploits can be as insanely overambitious as the title characters' schemes and so earned them all kinds of bizarre badges, often [[ContrivedCoincidence related to the boys' latest scheme]]. Once, Isabella casually mentions that they just earned their Mountain Moving badge, and we see the hole where it used to be, and the mountain in its new setting. Other times, they're trying to get badges in aeronautics or [[BadassAdorable alligator wrestling]].

* ''[[TheRedGreenShow The Red Green Book]]: Wit and Wisdom of Possum Lodge'' has a set of badges which parody the Boy Scouts one. The more advanced ones, starting with Bowling and Fishing, require developing an obsession about the content, including dreaming about it. After a few other examples, it terminates with "Anything men enjoy", which can be used for practically anything.
