In media, whenever a non-skull bone shows up, it's a very good bet it will be the classic femur bone, a straight rod with two evenly-sized bulbs at either end, ignoring the RealLife diversity of ribs, scapulas, clavicles, vertebras, and all the other diverse bones that hold the body in shape. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the femur being the largest, strongest, straightest bone in the body, so it's instantly recognizable, often well preserved, and useful for everything from [[BadWithTheBone improvised clubs]] to [[StockAnimalDiet dog chew toys]] to macabre furniture supports.

* These are often gnawed on and buried by Pluto on the ''ClassicDisneyShorts''. One cartoon, however, subverted it by having him unearth an accurately drawn femur.

** Pegasus wings are usually meant to emulate bird wings when possible, though in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E16ReadItAndWeep Read It and Weep]]" we see an X-Ray of Rainbow Dash's wing, [[ArtisticLicenseBiology and it's made up mostly of Stock Femur Bones]]. Kind of explains why she was trapped when a boulder pinned one feather in "[[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E7MayTheBestPetWin May The Best Pet Win!]]".

* In the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "disconnected", Strong Bad imagines what he would do if his head were ever disconnected from his body (and both somehow managed to continue living). His body is shown as having a femur bone sticking out of its neck instead of a spinal column.
