Edits around the Western Animation section.
* In ''SpongebobSquarepants'' episode "Band Geeks", Squidward and the Bikini Bottom citizens are practicing in a marching band. Squidward tells the flag spinners in the front to spin the flag faster, and eventually, so fast that they fly and collide with a zeppelin, which explodes. The trumpeteer of the band then plays the Taps as the rest of them hold their hats on their chest.

In fiction, Taps is used to mourn an honorable person, especially military characters, though in comedy it can be used for just about anyone. Often combined with a MomentOfSilence, hats off. Taps can also mean a metaphorical death, like a death of one's hope. If a civilian has died, AmazingFreakingGrace is much more likely to be heard.
