* Michael Havel, a.k.a. Lord Bear of the Bearkillers, from SMStirling's ''{{Emberverse}}'' trilogy, wears on his helmet the head of the bear that earned him and the outfit their names. Subverts the trope by making Havel nearly get killed by the bear, and tanning is done by specialists off-page.

* ''SilenceOfTheLambs'': The bad guy was killing girls to make himself a girl suit.
* ''Film/TheEdge'' is another Anthony Hopkins movie example: His character and Alec Baldwin's killed a bear in the Alaska wild and in the next shot were walking around in nice warm bear skin coats.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{BattleTech}}'', within Clan Ghost Bear Warriors may undergo the Clawing Ritual in which teams of high-ranking unClawed warriors are given basic provisions including a simple metal spear and hunting dogs, and journey into Strana Mechty's punishing Antarctic region to kill a ghost bear and bring back its carcass as proof. If successful the Warriors feast on the bear's meat and a cloak is made for each member of the hunting party (due to a ghost bear's size there is enough hide to make a good-sized cloak for every member), with the Warrior who landed the killing blow being allowed to ornament his or her own cloak with the animal's teeth while the other participants ornament theirs with the animal's claws. Most outside Clan Ghost Bear consider it counter-intuitive that the Clan hunts and kills their totem animal but it is justified by Clan Ghost Bear since these expeditions are very rarely successful. Warriors who succeed gain considerable prestige within the Clan and receive more consideration for rank advancement.
