* A family of them appear in ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'', but unlike most examples, they do have intelligence, are capable of speech and are one of the ''good'' characters. Oh, and they don't [[LifeDrain suck life]] either, that honor goes to a number of other characters including a ''Western-style vampire''.

* In ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'', Jiang-shi are a sub-species to zombies, primarily found in Asian countries like China and Taiwan. They tend to suffer from rigor-mortis almost daily, especially after sleep, locking up their elbows and knees, forcing them to practise tai chi every day to open up their joints. Chapter 39 introduced the first named jiang-shi in form of Cici.

* The corpse servants of the Tao family in ''ShamanKing''. Fitting for a Chinese family of shamans. The family tends to kill people with strong bodies to fill out their army of corpses. Lee Pai-Long, Jun's personal servant, has the full outfit and everything, but is much less stiff, seeing as he's a BruceLeeClone.

Incidentally, in Chinese, the word Jiāng Shī is also applied to the Anglo zombies (alongside 丧尸/喪屍 Sàng Shī), while Slavic vampires use another term entirely 吸血鬼 (Xī Xuè Guǐ). A Chinese man would find jiangshi to be closer to zombies than vampires.

The monster called a 'Chinese Vampire' has also been translated as a ''hopping corpse'' or ''hopping vampire'', among other names. The Mandarin name is romanized as ''jiangshi'', [[UsefulNotes/WhyMaoChangedHisName usually]].

* ''TabletopGame/KindredOfTheEast'', an entire roleplaying supplement in the ''OldWorldOfDarkness''. Calling themselves the ''Kuei-Jin'', they are spirits of the dead who fought their way back from one of the 1001 hells and back into their bodies, which they reanimate and keep alive by feeding on the chi of other people. In the setting's present day, they're usually involved in turf wars with western vampires. Only people of Asian descent can become Kuei-Jin. Primarily [[PlotHole another example]] of the setting's many conflicting religions which are [[FantasyKitchenSink all somehow true]] ''[[FantasyKitchenSink and]]'' [[FantasyKitchenSink mutually exclusive from one another]].
