** In the same book, Hogwarts is said to have a trophy room like any other boarding school, and it's stated that many of the trophies were awarded to/won by one Tom Riddle. When Ron and Harry have to polish the trophies as part of a detention, Ron jokingly asks if Riddle's great service to the school referenced on one trophy was killing Moaning Myrtle, one of the castle's ghosts. [[spoiler:He's more right than he thinks]].

* The ''WesternAnimation/GoodVibes'' episode "The Grass is Always Greener" has Woodie showing Mondo his old room with a bunch of trophies...which his parents bought on [=eBay=] to compensate for they son's lack of achievement. The only trophy he genuinely won was for a {{Pokemon}} trading card tournament.

* All the versions of "Literature/TheMostDangerousGame" (where a mad hunter hunts humans for sport) feature a variation. In "Surviving the Game" it's the victim's heads in jars. In "Bloodlust" he sets up tableaus of his victims at the moment of the kill.

* [[GreatWhiteHunter Lord General Castor]] from ''[[VideoGame/DawnOfWar Dawn of War [=II=]: Retribution]]'' mentions having one where he stores the heads of the [[HordeOfAlienLocusts Tyranids]] that he's killed over the course of his life, and orders his men to aim low so as to not damage the Hive Tyrant they are facing.

** After the VideoGame3DLeap with ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', it became possible to place items in the game world. The games in the series also tend to throw more legendary artifacts and unique items at you than you can reasonably use. Naturally, ever since, any [[PlayerHeadquarters houses you build or buy]] tend to [[SuperheroTrophyRoom become trophy rooms]] for showing off this awesome loot.

* In the military, a wall in your office with your awards, photos of you with famous people and so forth, is called an "I Love Me" wall. See also ShrineToSelf.
* It's common for politicians to have such a wall in their office as well.
* Lawyers and doctors do this a lot; partly from pride in their accomplishments, but also partly to impress (and reassure) their clients. Judges and politicians (which are really just lawyer prestige classes), do this to an often absurd extent; a lifetime of accumulated honours takes up a lot of real estate.
* Sports stars will often have a wall or room with their trophies, Hollywood stars, of course, have with their Oscars, etc.
* Enthusiastic hunters are known to have rooms filled with trophy sized animals they have caught. The safari hunter of yore is pretty much where this trope comes from.
