** They have trophies from Earth, also: when Harrigan kills one Predator, the others give him a flintlock pistol from the 18th Century, presumably from their own collection.

* A comical version of this would be the TV show ''TopGear''. After they won an Emmy, they kept the trophy in the toilet of their offices, which are little more than portable cabins. However, they prominently display a selection of vehicles [[ContinuityNod from previous adventures]] in their studio. Notable among these (and the only one to be a permanent fixture) is the Toyota Hilux pickup truck which survived their prolonged, ''intense'' campaign to destroy it.[[note]] It's been driven down a stone staircase, into a tree, submerged in the ocean through an entire tide cycle, dropped from a crane, driven through a cabin, had a trailer dropped on it, been hit with a wrecking ball, set on fire, and chained to the top of an imploding high rise.[[/note]] It now rests on an enormous tilted plinth behind the main platform.

* ''{{CSI New York}}'': The episode "Yahrzeit" showed the Trophy Rooms of ''two'' Neo-Nazi characters, both full of Nazi memorabilia, guns and items taken from Holocaust victims. Definitely at the creepier end of the spectrum.

** The Shadow Gallery exists in the film adaptation, too. It also shows Gordon Deitrich as having a similar trophy room, including a satirical painting of the BigBad in drag and a copy of the Qur'an.[[spoiler: Unfortunately, his owning the latter has him put to death by Sutler's thugs when they arrest him.]]

* The ''XWingSeries'' reveals that after taking power, [[StarWars Emperor Palpatine]] sealed off a wing of the Jedi museum on Coruscant to use as his personal trophy room, where he defaced or destroyed exhibits presumably as the people they honored were killed in his Jedi purge.
* In ASongOfIceAndFire, the [[TheDreaded Bolton]] family is rumored to have one, filled with the [[CreepySouvenir skins of enemies they've flayed alive]], including some [[HeroKiller Kings of Winter]].

* [[ComicBook/DisneyDucksComicUniverse Scrooge McDuck]] has one of these in CarlBarks and Creator/DonRosa continuities, containing various valuable mementoes from his previous adventures, [[ShoutOut often referencing earlier comics.]]

* In the ''VorkosiganSaga'', Cordelia sees Aral's trophies; His early medals are all carefully mounted and displayed, but the later ones, including some incredibly prestigious medals, are stuffed carelessly into a desk drawer. Miles repeats the pattern with his own awards, partly because they all relate to covert operations, and what's the point of a medal you can't tell a good story about? He does, however, have a wall display of his old leg braces.
