* 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.

* Gary Jennings' monumental novel 'Literature/{{'Aztec}}'' chronicles the life of Mixtli, a man who rises in Aztec society just before the Spanish conquest. One episode cocerns Mixtli and his trading expedition fighting and killing a jaguar. The animal is skinned with the intention of having the skin tanned and preserved when they reach a town; a slave is detailed to wear the uncured skin. Unfortunately for the slave it takes several days to reach a town where the skin could be cured and tanned; Mixtli drily notes that by then, it has rotted under the Mexican sun and everybody is trying not to stand too close to the hapless slave.

*** The Marines some Astartes Chapters (such as the Space Wolves and Salamanders) cover their armour with cloaks, charms and fetishes made from the skins of their homeworld’s most ferocious lifeforms. These skins are often from the creatures that the Marine had to slay as part of their Chapter’s initiation rituals, such as the pelt of the great Blackmaned Wolf that gave Ragnar Blackmane his name.

* The High Elven army in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' has an elite unit called the White Lions of Chrace, [[AnAxeToGrind greataxe-wielding]] woodsmen who wear the pelts of the beasts they take their name from.
