* In WebAnimation/CampCamp, the Quartermaster apparently has one of these along with his "Quartersister" and two other unknown individuals. Or at least he ''did'' until it was whittled down to just him and one of the unknowns.

* Similar to the'' Blackhawks'' example above, MarvelComics also has a WWII-era group who put aside a bottle of liquor as a tontine: the Young Allies. ComicBook/BuckyBarnes tracked down the other two survivors, and they have a laugh over it-- thanks to being cryogenically frozen over the years, Bucky is still in his mid-twenties and will obviously outlive them all. Bucky says he'd rather share the bottle with them now instead of drinking it when they're dead, so they each have a glass. Bucky finds himself the sole survivor very shortly afterward, and [[LibationForTheDead pours the rest of the drink]] out over a memorial to his friends.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Archer}}'', "The Double Deuce." When members of Wodehouse's old UsefulNotes/WorldWarI flying squad start dropping dead ([[spoiler:of perfectly natural causes that were played up as "dubious" by [[IfItBleedsItLeads desperate-for-sales newspapers]]]]), he suspects that it's because of the tontine they set up. Once word leaks out, Cheryl, Pam and Cyril think about starting an ISIS tontine, pointing out that the rest of their coworkers are either field agents that go on dangerous missions or work in parts of the building with NoOSHACompliance..
