* Shields with human skulls are a very common wall decoration in human homes in ''{{Albion}}''. Locals are quick to point out that they are old family heirlooms.

Piles of bones composed of... well... [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Nothing but Skulls]]. The rest of the bones vanish without explanation. It doesn't matter whether the victims were killed by ancient death traps, man-eating monsters or barbarian hordes; nothing remains but the skull.

* guy Savile's novel ''The Afrika Reich'' deals with what was likley to happen had the Germans won WW2. Historical documents suggest Nazi Germany would have demanded restoration of its former African colonies as war reparations. Savile suggests they would have gone beyond this and demanded additional African colonies from Britain, France and Belgium, occupying ceded territory as part of the drive for ''lebensraum''. Savile's novel sets put an Africa where, with collaboration from [[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...

* Fittingly enough, the queue line for ''Ride/SkullIslandReignOfKong'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Universal's Islands of Adventure]] is littered with skulls throughout, with very little different types of bone to be seen.

* ''ComicBook/{{Shakara}}'': The Overlord is rather amused that the alien tribe he just exterminated had used the Shakaran artifact he was looking for as a place to commit ritual sacrifice in the hopes of warding him off (believing the Overlord to be an angry god), and covered it with a mountain of skulls.

* In ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri'', there are Secret Projects playing the same role as Wonders do in ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}}''. The cinematic for one of them, "Dream Twister", involves (among other nasty things) a photo of a pile of skulls.

** Parodied in ''Discworld/InterestingTimes'' when Cohen and his Silver Horde learn from a local that the claiming of the throne of the Agatean Empire is traditionally accompanied with "seas of blood" and/or "a mountain of skulls". The Horde eagerly begins quizzing exactly how many skulls this precisely means, and their informant gets testy: "I don't know how big a mountain! A lot of skulls!"

* It's not unusual for skulls, human or otherwise, to wind up on top when piles of bones are washed downstream by running water and deposited all in a pile. There's nothing contrived or supernatural about this: air trapped in the sinus cavities simply makes them lighter for their volume than most other skeletal parts.
