* In ''VideoGame/TheDarksideDetective'', the local scouting organization is the Bloodwolves, and it's a running gag that whenever Dooley's Bloodwolf pack are in a potentially dangerous or frightening situation (such as "lurking outside a dark, spooky cave" or "abandoned in the snow on Christmas Eve") one of them will note that there's a merit badge for that.

* ''Film/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.

* This is pretty much the basis of the Nick Jr. preschooler series ''Hey Dugee'', in which the IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming is always based on these. "The Super Squirrel Badge" and "The Drawing Badge" are just a couple of examples of installments of the show.

It's worth noting that many sources use "getting a merit badge" like winning an award, when the actual process involves meeting with an approved merit badge counselor, showing achievement of a specific set of criteria, and producing a formal writeup of the process for approval by said counselor and the relevant troop leaders -- it's more like a short hands-on class (occasionally with homework) than it is a trophy.

** How about the "Reckless Disregard for Life and Limb" patch?

* 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.)
