''Crazy Safari (The Gods must be crazy III)'' featured Xi helping some Chinese people who were transporting a Chinese mummy/vampire when their plane crashed. It ends with the Chinese Zombie fighting an African voodoo zombie.

N!xau's popularity had him being cast in a series of comedies made by a Hong Kong company in which, rather than being called Xi Xo, he goes by his real name. Although never intended to be sequels to the original film (as the titles and plots of the films were entirely different), they were eventually released under "The gods must be crazy", added with a sequel number. The original Chinese title of the fifth film even translates to "The Gods must be funny in China" as nod to the original film. [[DenserAndWackier Let's just say that these films were quite different from the original ones]]:
