* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', when Bart decided he needed to grow up and [[ItsAllJunk put away his childish things]], he did so by giving them a Viking Funeral.
* ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' launched an actual Viking longship into ''[[HurlItIntoTheSun the Sun]]''.
** While Dianna read ''Literature/TheRimeOfTheAncientMariner'', for some reason. It does have very roughly the right portentous, marine feel, and the person in question ''had'' spent centuries trying to die, so points for the vague FlyingDutchman tie-in, but viewers who recognized the poem were still somewhat taken aback. What kind of elegy is that for a Viking prince?
* In ''WesternAnimation/KickButtowski'' Gunther gives Kick's helmet a viking funeral. We even see nordic god/ancestor constellation entities watching the funeral.

* Apparently, certain pet owners found it a more interesting alternative to burial in the garden. You can try searching for "viking funeral" on Youtube; chances are there won't be many film scenes among search results.

* Abhorred in the RealLife amongst boaters. A fire onboard a boat or yacht while underway is often fatal, and almost always results in destruction of the said boat.
** Even if such a funeral were planned, the materials most boats are made of these days would make for some very toxic smoke.

* The funeral of Hoster Tully from ''Series/GameOfThrones'' used this trope, played for laughs at first when his son Edmure fails to hit the boat three times, and then for a BadAss moment when Edmure's uncle, Brynden, frustratedly seizes the bow, fires an arrow, and tosses it back without even needing to check if it actually hit the boat.

* Niobe performs a variant in ''[[Literature/IncarnationsOfImmortality With a Tangled Skein]]'', by setting the boat she's on on fire, trying to attract Thanatos' attention so she can try to convince him to return her dearly loved husband to life. There are a few things she doesn't know, such as [[spoiler:that her husband had quite deliberately arranged to be the one to die, to keep her from being killed, or her own eventual destiny as Fate and as ancestor of two other Incarnations]].
