* ''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 another example of the setting's many conflicting religions which are [[FantasyKitchenSink all somehow true]] ''[[FantasyKitchenSink and]]'' [[FantasyKitchenSink mutually exclusive from one another]].

* ''GaiaOnline'' has a "Gung Xi" set, for [[http://www.tektek.org/avatar/36354841 males]] and [[http://www.tektek.org/avatar/36354945 females.]] The shoes are described as "Special shoes built for hopping." and all the other items make references to being for dead Chinese people; it's pretty likely they're a direct reference to the Ragnarok Online [=NPCs=].

** A straighter example is [[http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Master_Kyonshee Master Kyonshee]], a Normal Zombie-Type Monster whose name is a misspelling of "''kyonshi''," the Japanese term for a ''jiangshi.'' Unlike Ghostrick Jiangshi, Master Kyonshee isn't shown hopping, but instead appears as the revived body of an OldMaster of some kind, put to evil use--the paper over his face reads "Cursed."

* One episode of KungFuPandaLegendsOfAwesomeness features these. For the most part, they're a pretty accurate depiction, though they do eat brains instead of chi.

* In one episode of ''Anime/WanWanCelebSoreyukeTetsunoshin'', Chin dresses up as a jiang shi as part of a horror attraction held in a cemetery. While Tetsunoshin has no idea what a jiang shi is, Victoria both knows and [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes is afraid enough of them]] that she ''punts'' Chin clear off-screen purely out of fear.

* 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.
