* 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.]]]]

* Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] has tyrannosaurus bones. The Florida and Tokyo versions of the ride have them as well. Doubles as a ShoutOut for the attraction it originally replaced at Disneyland, the Mine Train Thru Nature's Wonderland, which featured the same skeleton.
* So does Camp Jurassic at Islands of Adventure.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', one whole layer of Hell is covered with (partially still alive) body of its former ruler, the bones forming giant mountain ranges.

* In ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'', one whole layer of Hell is covered with (partially still alive) body of its former ruler, the bones forming giant mountain ranges. Likewise, the Outlands' portal town to Hell, the aptly named Ribcage, is built within the ribs of something huge and unidentified.

* In ''VideoGame/SunlessSea'', near the east end of the map is the Gant Pole, which is the skeletal remains of some very large unknown creature sticking out of the sea. While it's unknown how deep the sea is at that point, the bones you can see are much larger and tower much higher then your ship and incidentally, are larger then some of the islands you encounter.

* One of the most notable examples in the ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' franchise comes in Monster Hunter 4 with the Primal Forest map -- one area is entirely overshadowed by the giant ribcage of some sort of gigantic serpentine monster. The [[DisconnectedSideArea secret starting location]] for this map is located on top of one of the ribs that has snapped loose from the rest of the ribcage, and is easily large enough for a [[CoOpMultiplayer full party of 4 hunters.]]
