* Guy Savile's novel ''The Afrika Reich'' deals with what was likely to happen had the Germans won WW2.

Savile's novel sets put an Africa where, with collaboration from [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra sympathetic Afrikaaners]], once the death camps had dealt with the "Jewish question", they would have continued in business dealing with the next category of undesirable ''untermensch'' - Black Africans. The psychopathic governor of a German colony in Africa has his SS troops' parade-ground paved with negro skulls...

The fact that the artist was born in a town called ''Cherepovets'' (''"Skulltown"'' in Russian), which was named after an ancient pagan shrine, adds to the RuleOfCool.

* In the ''[[TMNT2003 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' episode "The Trouble With Augie", Donatello eventually founds a mass grave organized in this manner. While one can see bits and pieces of other types of bones, skulls are by far the most common.
