He got a funeral when ... spoiler alert! ... he died! I'm going to suggest this as a page quote on Self Fulfilling Spoiler, 'cause it's too funny. The example was also already there, but sorted in the wrong folder.
* [[spoiler:Stoick]] was given this in ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2''.

* [[spoiler: Stoick]] from ''WesternAnimation/HowtoTrainYourDragon2'' gets one when [[spoiler: he dies]].

[[AC:RealLife]] * The vikings themselves (duh) as reported by Ahmad ibn Fadlan, though, it was generally reserved only for really remarkable chieftains and warlords. Usually the Norsemen simply either interred their dead or cremated them and interred the ashes. If a boat was used, it usually was a simple rowing boat, and it was often used simply as a casket. The reason is [[CaptainObvious obvious]]: boats, and more so ships, are expensive investments and of more use in mundane and martial tasks than as funerary implements. To be more practical, the vikings would sometimes instead build fake [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stone_ship Stone ships]] and bury their dead in them, instead of burning real ones. Sometimes, the ship was burned on land and a mound was raised above it. The religious idea behind it was simply that the deceased would travel in the ship to the other side. And sometimes they where buried with a horse so they could ride there.

* Referred to in the ''Series/{{NCIS}}'' episode "Outlaws and Inlaws" when a small boat with two bodies sails itself into San Diego harbor. Director Vance makes the Viking reference.

Added DiffLines:
* 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.

* ''VideoGame/TheBannerSaga'' has a viking funeral for [[spoiler: whoever shot the arrow at Bellower and was subsequently crushed to death.]] Instead of a burning arrow, the boat is simply lit with a torch while still ashore. The scene even transitions to show the boat reaching the afterlife.

\n* One where it's PlayedForLaughs: episode 5 of ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' ("Murdering Outside the Box") ends with one given to #216: a supposed employee who was really a spy. The circumstances of his death are funny enough, but then comes the funeral itself: -->'''Skwisgaar:''' So wait a minute. Stupid Level 2 employees get a Viking Funeral? That's balls.
