* Kamina's katana is planted above his grave in ''Anime/GurrenLagann''. His BadassCape is tied around the hilt for good measure. More swords are planted alongside Kamina's in the series finale for the members of Team Dai-Gurren who had died by that point, along with Nia's Wedding Ring.

* ''Film/SavingPrivateRyan'' : After the paratroopers killed near the radar station are buried, Capt. Miller marks their graves with their helmets and M1 rifles. He removes the trigger assemblies from the weapons so they can't be used by the Germans.

* In ''Film/{{Highlander}}'', Heather's grave was marked by her husband's claymore. Slightly unusual (though no less [[TearJerker effective]]) for the trope, as she wasn't a warrior herself. This may have symbolized that "Connor [=MacCleod=]" died there too, as he casts off his previous life with her.
* In ''Film/KingArthur'' fallen warriors had their blades stuck in the ground at their gravesites to act as tombstones; this is where Arthur gets Excalibur.



* ''SavingPrivateRyan'' : After the paratroopers killed near the radar station are buried, Capt. Miller marks their graves with their helmets and M1 rifles. He removes the trigger assemblies from the weapons so they can't be used by the Germans.
* In Akira Kurosawa's ''Film/SevenSamurai'' the four samurai who died are remembered this way. Possibly an UrExample for film and katana examples in particular. The peasants who died in the fight have spears stuck in theirs.
* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'': [[spoiler:Allan Quartermain]]'s [[spoiler:rifle]] is laid on his grave, not stuck into it.

* ''{{Bunnykill}} 4'' ends with Snowball marking Ruby's grave with the double-bladed staff that she used as her primary weapon.
* The end of {{TOME}} includes a small shot of Kirbopher's gravestone, marked with his sword and hat, despite Christopher being alive by the end of the story. Perhaps it's meant to say that the persona itself is dead, either due to Kajet's attacks corrupting the game model, or because his secret identity had been revealed.
