* In ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', this is the customary burial rite for the riverlands lords. Played for some laughs at Hoster Tully's funeral, when Edmure repeatedly fails to hit his father's boat with a flaming arrow. His uncle Brynden ends up doing it for him, more out of pity than frustration like in the [[Series/GameOfThrones TV show]].

In some cases, the fire-arrow step isn't performed. This can be due to a lack of flammable sails and fire arrows, a need for haste, or simply different funerary practices. A third (more historically accurate) variant exists in which the boat is not [[BurialAtSea set out to sea]], but instead used to lay the corpse in for a [[BurnBabyBurn funeral pyre]]. And finally, Viking funerals need not be literal. Many examples feature metaphorical stand-ins for any of the aspects of the ritual.
