* [[DiscussedTrope Discussed]] several times in the various ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' source books and quiet a few ''Literature/BattleTechExpandedUniverse'' stories. A lot of people die in ways that preclude having something to bury, most often involving cockpit hits or reactor/ammo explosions. One particular instance in "Double Blind" has a mercenary unit trying to bury one of their fallen, only to examine the 'Mech and find little more than intermingled bits of charred bone and metal fragments in the ruined cockpit, intermixed and vaporized by [[BoomHeadshot a PPC shot to the 'Mech's head]]. They treat these remains as their comrade's ashes and spread them from the air.

* In the Anime/GirlsUndPanzer fanfic [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/8835751/8/In-Strange-Waters In Strange Waters]], [[OriginalCharacter Lucius]], part of the Canadian school Vimy Ridge's tankery team, recounts an incident in which an artillery shell struck a Hummel's ammunition compartment, leading to the deaths of everyone inside and a ban on open-topped vehicles in sensha-do, among other things.
-->'''Lucius''': We were told that…a piece of charred remain of someone's skin about 1.5cm across was the biggest human remain they found.

* Nominally the ''Verdun'' [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne campaign of February-December 1916]] took place over an area 10km deep and 30km wide, within which more than 400,000 men were wounded and 250,000 died (high-intensity combat even by WWI standards). Actually, the bulk of the fighting took place over an area just 5km deep and 10km wide - where Fort Douamont offered the artillery-spotters a commanding view of the battlefield. More than 12 million artillery shells landed within that area. The remains of 130,000 men were too fragmentary to be distinguished by side, and so were interred together at the Franco-German Douamont Ossuary. Although they are distinguished by (likely) bone type for the most part, there are also chambers for the indeterminable.

However, the remainder were too fragmentary to be grouped even by side. They were buried in a single, joint Franco-German mausoleum.
