* In the {{Mystara}} setting's nation of Karameikos, the Shearing is a custom in which teenagers leave their parents' home for a year to prove themselves capable of independence. As it's not intended to be a ''difficult'' challenge, this may just mean moving in with a relative or neighbor and working at an entry-level job that the Sheared teen's parents covertly arranged to have available for them. The name "Shearing" refers to how the bottom hem of such a teen's cloak is ceremonially cut short to symbolize their new status.

* In the ''WomenOfTheOtherworld'' series, witches much undergo a special ceremony after their first period, but before their second to unlock their full power. Failure to do so leaves the witch with the same power levels she had as a child. Unfortunately for Paige, in ''Dime Store Magic'', she learns that the rites she was taught was actually a [[{{Nerf}} nerfed]] version of the real thing. The clear implication was that, somewhere along the way, the witch elders intentionally altered the ceremony to ensure none of their number could grow too powerful, hence bringing unwanted attention on the rest. She uses the real thing on her ward, Savannah.
* In the novel ''{{Nation}}'' by Creator/TerryPratchett when a boy comes of age he is left on an island and must construct a canoe and get back to his village as a rite of passage, to receive his adult soul so the tribe believes. Mau is on his way home when the tsunami hits, which is why he's [[LastOfHisKind the only survivor]].

--> "Because you aren't a child any more, my prince," Morgan said a little sharply. "Because in three days' time, you'll be knighted. For those who never wear a crown, that's the official seal of manhood. It makes you fair game for those who might have spared you before because of your youth�especially as your talents become more widely known. When you go on progress, and especially when you meet the Torenthi legates in Cardosa, you'll be particularly at risk."

* The Vortixx race in ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}'' must climb "The Mountain", one pair at a time. Said large rock is actually a sentient but immobile animal who eats one of the climbers, allowing the other to finish. Roodaka even went through the passage twice, just to prove how much of a {{Badass}} she is (not that she really needed to).
