* In the Literature/{{Discworld}}-themed fics of Creator/AAPessimal, there are an awful lot of places in [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica White Howondaland]]named for a colonial adventurer called Sir Cecil Smith-Rhodes. These ''begin'' with a whole country - [[UsefulNotes/{{Zimbabwe}} Smith-Rhodesia]]. Even his wife got one - the town of Ladysmith-Rhodes. New Scrote is named for the village in the Sto Plains where Cecil was born. The progress of Cecil Smith-Rhodes across the Rimwards end of the continent of Howondaland is marked by the inevitable statues set up in his honour. A descendent of sir Cecil visits Smith-Rhodesia for the first time and follows the trail of statues in towns he founded in [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/29/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year Adventures]].

* ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'':
** Hyrule Castle in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'' has a statue in the central hall of the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Hero of Time]].
** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Zora's Domain and Goron City have statues of Mipha and Daruk, the old Champions of those respective races. Having the statues specifically pointed out to [[AmnesiacHero Link]] is enough for him to recover his memories of them.

* "Partners", the statue found in most Disneyland-style Ride/DisneyThemeParks of Creator/WaltDisney and Mickey Mouse.

* "Partners", the statue found in most Disneyland-style Ride/DisneyThemeParks of Creator/WaltDisney and Mickey Mouse. A different statue of Walt and Mickey "Storytellers", intended to show him as he was when first arriving in Los Angeles is found at Disney California Adventure and oddly, Shanghai Disneyland.
** The Magic Kingdom has an additional statue of Roy O. Disney (who spearheaded Walt Disney World's launch after his brother's death) and Minnie Mouse sitting on a bench titled "Sharing the Magic"

Added DiffLines:

* Several examples in ''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'':
** The Dorado and Castilo maps each have a statue of Guillermo Portero, war hero and [[CorruptCorporateExecutive founder of LumeriCo]] who was born in Dorado. The reason for the statue on Castilo is unknown, as it's a different statue (and asset) but clearly the same man.
** Overwatch's Swiss headquarters (eventually) had a giant statue of their leader, Strike Commander Jack Morrison. This is eventually a point of contention between Morrison and his rival Reyes, who had been passed over in favor of Morrison for leadership of Overwatch, in the "Uprising" comic: Reyes, whose covert ops department Blackwatch had been shut down by the UN, refused to help in the London crisis, even in planning a response (which he ''would'' be allowed to do under the UN sanction). When asked for help, he [[MemeticMutation shrugged]] and said "[he's] not the one with the statue".

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

He did change many things in Turkey mightily, among them constructing a modern, staunchly secular and Western-Oriented republic out of a recessive and staunchly Muslim VestigialEmpire, as well as introducing tea to a previously [[MustHaveCaffeine coffee crazy]] nation, 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.Atatürk, such as blurring the line between Islam and national politics.

* And over at Ride/UniversalStudios Florida, the New York area of the park has a statue of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lew_Wasserman Lew Wasserman]], a long-time MCA/Universal executive who not only helped build the park, but also helped spearhead many of Universal's 70s/80s blockbusters and essentially made the studio what it is today.

* 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.
