* ''VideoGame/{{Iji}}'' has (in 1.7) a pair of logbooks just before the FinalBoss that list the name, age, and birthplace of ''every'' Tasen or Komato you killed. If you're going for the worst ending (which requires 300 total kills at this point), it's gonna be a ''long'' read.

* ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' has a few of these in season 3. When trying to come up with a name for the baby Carl lists all the female characters who have died up to that point. Later Rick has a conversation over the phone with who he thinks is a group of other survivors, it turns out to be his hallucination of all the characters from his group who have died so far (except for Shane).

* One ''Series/{{Bones}}'' episode had the team investigate the murder of a CIA analyst. At the end of the episode, the CIA director places a star for him on Langley's memorial wall, which is normally reserved for operatives, because the analyst had died in service to his country (to say more would be spoilers).

* ''[[Series/SpartacusBloodAndSand Spartacus: War of the Damned]]'': In a poignant moment at Crixus' funeral, the rebels begin to call out the names of their friends, allies, and loved ones who have died during the rebellion. A few who died before the rebellion are named as well, as their deaths helped start the rebellion. Impressively, most of the (significant) deceased characters are mentioned.

* In the GrandFinale of ''WakingTheDead'', Boyd is arrested and interviewed by the corrupt policeman responsible (directly or indirectly) for the torture and death of numerous homeless boys. Boyd says nothing in the interview, except to [[TranquilFury coldly]] list the name or nickname [[TearJerker of every single one of them]], knowing full-well that the interviewing policeman knows what he's talking about but nobody else does. Slightly subverted, however, as (to Boyd's irritation) not all of the boys were considered important enough at the time to have their names recorded:

* Used in the ''FanFic/TriptychContinuum'', where [[Recap/TriptychContinuumFiveHundredLittleMurders one story]] shows Fluttershy has memorized the names of all the animals she's had to euthanize. It's suggested this is something much less than healthy: she recites the list while standing over the grave of the most recent burial, and all it seems to do is renew the pain.

* In ''Series/TheFlash2014'', Dr. Wells is confronted by a metahuman, who accidentally killed his friends with his new powers on the day of the particle accelerator explosion. Wells counters by listing off the names of his friends and half a dozen other people, who have died that day as a result of the explosion, pointing out that he has made a point of learning their names, so he would always remember the price for his arrogance. [[spoiler:This is a little strange, as Wells/Thawne has shown that he cares little about the people who get hurt, claiming that all of them "have been dead for centuries", this may have been simply for the metahuman's benefit]].

* In ''[[Literature/ArrivalsFromTheDark Fighters of Danveyt]]'', the mercenary Defenders have a tradition. Whenever one or more of their number are killed in battle, they are summoned to a large courtyard in front of the administrative building. The most respected of them recounts the events that led to the death(s) and then the List is announced, including the name of every Defender and his or her place of origin. In the novel, a particularly brutal ambush by the [[TheReptilians Dromi]] results in Defender casualties in the dozens. Despite the List being very long, everyone stands there in the courtyard and somberly listens to every name.
