* Like the ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', example above, Metropolis in ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' has had a statue of Comicbook/{{Superman}} erected after after his [[Film/ManOfSteel victory against Zod]]. This outrages a lot of people, (and it's implied [[HumbleHero Clark]] isn't too fond of it either) notably because said statue is in the middle of a memorial for the victims of Zod's attack, and plently of people blame Superman for the tragedy.

* [=McDonald's=] for years had brass plaques at the entrances with "Our Founder, Ray Kroc"; the [=McDonald=] brothers themselves getting short, if any mention. Wendy's does something similar with a photograph of their founder in some promotional materials, as well as in framed posters all over any given Wendy's location.

* Nicaragua was governed between 1979 and 1990 by a party called the "Sandinistas" named after Augusto C Sandino, who fought against an US occupation of his country in the 1930s and died at the hands of the dictator whose son the Sandinistas toppled four decades later. While in power the Sandinistas put Sandino on currency, their campaign material and countless tacky T-shirts. When they were voted out in 1990 they put a silhouette of him on top of one of the highest mountains in the capital, Managua, incidentally the site of the former presidential palace and not too far from where Sandino was assassinated. When the Sandinistas returned to power in 2006, the Sandino imagery came back, though much less pronounced. Even one banknote (and none of the coins) today has any relation to him, and it doesn't bear his image but rather a picture of the hut he was born in. Students still have to learn the details of his life.

* Much like Atatürk, Lenin used to be everywhere not just as the icon of Soviet Union, but also an icon of the socialist revolution worldwide. TheGreatPoliticsMessup caused a significant amount of these statues to be taken out as part of the [[HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection Decommunization]] process in former Eastern-Block countries, however many still remain in Ukraine, Russia and Belarus where even some new ones have been erected.

* The largest statue of UsefulNotes/OttoVonBismarck is located near the Port of UsefulNotes/{{Hamburg}}. During the German Kaiserreich (1871-1918), which Bismarck helped found, Bismarck was very close to everywhere, especially after his death in 1898. Every major city has a street or square named for him and there are statues of him in many places as well. Even herring has been named for him, because he supposedly once said he liked its taste and German fishers were so grateful, they named one type of preparing it after him.

* Ataturk is all over Turkey, apparently not just the founder of the country but of just about every local establishment and tradition.

* Ataturk Atatürk is all over Turkey, apparently not just the founder of the country but of just about every local establishment and tradition.tradition. He did change many things in Turkey mightily, among them introducing tea to a previously [[MustHaveCaffeine coffee crazy]] nation, that had just lost its Arab possessions. One of the things that make current leader Erdogan controversial is his breaking with some traditions claimed to be based on Atatürk.

* Cornelius Coot, the founder of Duckburg, WesternAnimation/DonaldDuck and entourage's duck-inhabited home town, in the CarlBarks-penned issues of Walt Disney Comics. One instance had [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Uncle Scrooge McDuck]] and a foreign Raj competing to build the biggest one; it got to the point where you couldn't see the statues in their entirety from within the town borders.
