The Commandments are a short list of simple rules that must be followed. It's a much simpler system the any rulebook, lawbook or manifesto. The most famous such list of commandments (at least in western culture) is the one known as The Ten Commandments, featured in RealLife Christianity as well as stories about the faith.[[note]]It is widely believed that the Ten Commandments are also common to Judaism, but this is a misconception. In Hebrew, those verses are referred to as "the Ten Statements"; they are in fact made up of ''fourteen'' commandments, and are not even considered of particular importance.[[/note]] However, many other such lists pop up in various media, especially fantasy.

* ''Webcomic/PerfectionEngine'' feature commandments of the Eidolon society as extra pages. In aiming for a literally perfect society, some of the commandments can get rather extreme.
--> All Eidolons shall be equal in the eyes of the law. The King is not to be perceived as a higher power only an aid by means to perfect our souls should we fall astray through the passage of time or the errors in managing our morality. Eidolons shall be punished and put under corrective care immediately should they fall too far astray from the greater goodness this society aims for with their inner negativity, or in extreme cases, outer expressions of negativity towards oneself or another.

''Creator/TheBrewingNetwork'' at times refers to what they call "the brewer's code", which is "don't be a dick". Usually cited when a competition relies on the honor code (ie not checking the internet for answers) or talking about behavior and beer festivals and conferences.

* The Ideals of the [[TheOrder Knights Radiant]] in ''Literature/TheStormlightArchive''. The First Ideal was common to all orders, but the others varied; unlike most other examples, we know very few of these rules.
** The First Ideal: Life before death. Strength before weakness. Journey before destination.
** One of the Second Ideals: I will protect those who cannot protect themselves.
