** In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVII'', official art [[https://dragon-quest.org/images/2/25/DQVII_Dancer_female.png shows]] what your party member Maribel would appear while using the Dancer class.



** In ''VideoGame/DragonQuestIX'', the "Lady of the Dance" sidequest involves you searching for the inheritor of the amazing belly dance left behind from Flamenca, a world-renowned dancer. The description states that the current holder is "very pretty, and always adorned with jewels", but before you start thinking about finding an attractive guy who can shake his hips and is adorned in glistening beauty...[[spoiler: the inheritor turns out to be a Goody Bag enemy, a bag-shaped monster filled with jewels.]] Regardless, once the sidequest is complete, the Belly Dance party trick is able to be used.

* We really need to note that what the West knows as belly dancing is something of an artificial construction. As noted above, it's generally ''raqs sharqi'' (Oriental Dance), which is a more sexualized version of the traditional dance of the Arab world, developed for the entertainment of wealthy men, and thus only practiced by women. However, the traditional dance of several countries is similar; this is particularly true of the Egyptian ''raqs balady'' ("native/local dance"), which is practiced by both men and women and shares many moves with the other thing. So in other words, if you ever see a guy on the dancefloor who looks like he's bellydancing: (1) well, he is, but (2) he's probably just Egyptian.

* In recent years, China has undergone a [[https://www.worldcrunch.com/culture-society/how-belly-dancing-in-china-has-become-the-hip-new-thing popularity boom]] in terms of belly dancers, from many professional dancers emerging from the country to countless new students wishing to learn. This new fad is believed to be the work of former singer [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7f1zSsvi-Ok Wen Kexin]], who fell in love with belly dance after having to learn it for a music video she took part in. Supposedly, China now has at least 100 schools dedicated to belly dance, all led by former students of Wen Kexin.
