* The Vortixx race in ''{{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).

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has two: the turians undergo a period of compulsory military service to earn citizenship, while any quarian you meet outside the Flotilla is likely undergoing their [[GoingToSeeTheElephant Pilgrimage]] to earn a place on a ship's crew and a MeaningfulRename.
** And the sequel introduces the Krogan rite to establish themselves as a true warrior. It's tradition, and you get to go through the process with Grunt if you choose to take on the side-mission. Said rite (or at least the Clan Urdnot variant) is as follows: activate a totem that summons predators, kill them. Activate it again, kill the next wave. Activate it again, which causes it to set off the Thresher Maw Hammer, and then survive for five minutes while the most dangerous predator in the galaxy tries to kill you. If you get out alive, you're in. If you ''kill'' the Thresher Maw, you're a legend.

to:

* 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.
