''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 [[CoolVersusAwesome Chinese Zombie fighting an African voodoo zombie]].

''Crazy Hong Kong (The Gods must be crazy IV aka The Gods must be crazy in Hong Kong)'' takes the FishOutOfWater concept UpToEleven by having Xi get stranded in modern urban Hong Kong and get into various hilarious situations.

''The Gods must be funny in China (The Gods must be crazy V)''. N!xau now lives in a small village in China, often giving lessons about his native country. He also learned to fully speak Chinese (in reality he never did and his voice was simply overdubbed by a Chinese actor) and communicate with them. A sports promoter notices how fast he can run and manages to persuade him to enter a marathon. HilarityEnsues as he and his team get lost during the race and in the meantime save pandas from mad poachers.

The film was an instant hit (despite being low budget) and was a StarMakingRole for N!xau (who played Xi, himself being a real bushman) the second film, simply titled ''The Gods must be crazy 2'' was more or less as good as the first, if a bit [[StrictlyFormula too similar]].

Added DiffLines:

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: Done various times. One notable example involves when Xi shoots the goat. He erroneously believes it is food to eat, but fails to realize that this is the shepherd's goat. He cordially greets the angry shepherd, assuming that he is to share the feast. More hilarious confusion entails, but this eventually becomes [[DramaticallyMissingThePoint Dramatically Missing the Point]] as [[spoiler:Xi gets arrested for this confusion.]]
