* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', young [[BirdPeople Rito]] must journey to the peak of Dragon Roost Island's mountain to receive a scale from the dragon Valoo, the sky spirit who guards the island. It explicitly allows them to grow their wings and implicitly makes them grow taller very quickly (the latter indicated by Prince Komali being noticeably taller after getting his scale). The first major dungeon arc requires Link to find a way of calming down the suddenly rampaging Valoo in part because this means the Rito can't get those scales anymore.

** 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) follows the history of the Krogan, and is as follows: Activate a totem that summons waves of varren for you to kill, symbolizing how the Krogan became the top species on a DeathWorld. Activate it again, and a wave of insect like klixen arrive, representing how the Krogan were introduced to the galaxy to fight the rachni (whom the klixen resemble), kill them too. Activate it one last timn, which causes it to set off the Thresher Maw Hammer, which natrually enough summons a Thresher Maw. 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. 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).

*** ''VideoGame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has two krogan colonists noting that, since Andromeda has no thresher maws, they're going to have to find a new rite of passage. Conversation turns to the giant, NighInvulnerable, mechanical worm-thing just out on New Tuchanka's doorstep, and whether they can get its attention somehow.

* In ''Manga/AkagamiNoShirayukihime'' the reason Zen is receiving so many letters from noble families looking to marry one of their daughters to him is that his brother never had a beautillion ball and indicated early on he knew who he was going to marry while Zen is at an age when he could possibly still hold such a ball to look for a potential spouse so every family wanting to have a daughter marry a prince is directing their efforts at Zen.

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.
