* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'' has an absolutely ginormous dodongo skull near the entrance to the boss chamber in the Dodongo Cavern. Kinda' makes you wonder what would've happened if Ganondorf had resurrected THAT instead of the dragon in the fire temple.
** Furthermore, in Dondongo's Cavern that entire room where the skull is located is inside a massive ribcage. Oddly, this means the ginormous skull is facing the wrong way...
*** [[WildMassGuessing Maybe, one huge dodongo choked to death while trying to swallow another giant dodongo whole, and then they both fossilized and were slowly covered up by the mountain!]]
** And in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaALinkToThePast'', both the western swamp and the DarkWorld LostWoods are littered with huge monster bones, most of which are actually [[RibcageRidge ribcages]]. In fact, many ''Zelda'' games have human and monster skulls littered about, which can be broken to get health, money, keys, or health-restoring fairies.

** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Leviathans are hidden in three areas (Gerudo Desert, Tabantha Region, and Death Mountain) where there is stuff hidden inside their massive fossil skeletons. There are also inexplicably huge ribs jutting out of the ground near three Hinox brother and all over Death Mountain - plus one full, absolutely gargantuan rib cage off on its own somewhere.

* In ''QuestForCamelot'', one of the first things greeting the Kayley and Garret in "Dragon Country" is a giant skeleton that they climb over without realizing what it is. Much later, they have a giant dragon skeleton ''dropped'' on them.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', the Ironborn tell stories of how the legendary Grey King killed the sea dragon Nagga and built his hall from her rib cage. Whether the stories are completely true or not, the petrified, building-sized rib cage remains; they treat it as holy ground and crown their kings there.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' games, large skeletons may appear on desert maps. Some take up two squares on the map, which means they're considerably larger than humans.

* In ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'' games, large skeletons may appear on desert maps. Some take up two squares on the map, which means they're considerably larger than humans. The most exaggerated example would be the Plegian maps in ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'', which all feature huge dragon bones, but the Chapter 10 map takes the cake. Its fought around what little of the gargantuan dragon Grima's ribcage wasn't buried under the ground, but what "little" is still visible is still big enough to take up almost the entire map and have ''fortresses'' built on top of some of the rib lengths.

* In ''EndersGame'', when Ender kills a giant in a game designed by Battle School to test the students' psychology, the giant's body is left to rot. Every time he comes back it's a bit different- the bones get grown over, until the rib-cage forms a valley and the legs two long hills. Someone even comes along and builds a village into the skeleton. Later, after the war is over, he learns that [[spoiler: the Buggers built an identical landscape on one of the planets the humans colonized and [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture hid a cocoon containing their last queen in it.]]]]
