** Apparently, Kantonian Bulbasaur gather at a proscribed time and place, where a Venusaur presides over their collective evolution.


Added DiffLines:

** First Holy Communion is a big deal for Catholics. It comes after a young Catholic's first confession, so it boils down to a celebration of the formation of a child's conscience and the development of his or her ability to tell right from wrong. It usually takes place when a child is in second grade, but in some parishes, things are spread out more so that first confessions take place for second graders in the spring, and they receive their first communion as third graders during the following fall.

* In some parts of the United States, being asked by one's parents to call them by their first names is a RiteOfPassage for both parent and offspring; it's a formal recognition that the child is now an adult, but it's also a tearful recognition for both that the son or daughter is now old enough that the parent can no longer protect him or her no matter how much the parent might wish he or she could.

** And the sequel introduces the krogan rite to establish themselves as a true warrior. It can be completed solo, or the young krogan may convince one or two already established warriors to help them (called a "krantt"). 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, this is also acceptable, and is considered a mark of enormous skill (the only Urdnot to manage this in the past thousand years or so is Wrex).

This represents the Krogan's fate under the [[DepopulationBomb Genophage]], an enemy that cannot be fought, one you can only try to survive. You must survive for five minutes while the most dangerous predator in the galaxy tries to kill you. If you get out alive, you're in.

* 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]].
