* Numerous chupacabras appear in the Literature/InCryptid series as therianthropic cryptids: James (Verity's competitive dance partner) in ''DiscountArmadeddon'' and ''Midnight Blue-Light Special,'' Princess Leya-you-out, one of Antimony's fellow [[UsefulNotes/RollerDerby jammers]] in "Bad Dream Girl" and "Jammed," and Malena, one of Verity's fellow dancers in ''Chaos Choreography.'' Their beast form is the typical scabrous reptile-wolf creature, their human form is indistinguishable from a Latin@ person of their age and build.

The myth began in Puerto Rico during the 1970s. At the time, there was a rash of animal slayings, mostly farm animals that had bled to death. This caused some people to (halfway seriously) think some kind of vampiric creature was on the loose; it became known as "The Moca Vampire" (Moca being the town were the attacks started). The attacks eventually stopped as mysteriously as they begun. The local yellow journals, of course, exploited them to the hilt.

* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' references the Chupacabra once or twice. In the original, it was just theorized that it was a Chupacabra behind the vampire attacks. (In truth, it was [[spoiler:Evangeline.]])
** In the second animated series ''Anime/NegimaSecondSeason'', it became more of a RunningGag, ranging from a Chupacabra-based club being used as a cover for those who discovered Negi's secret and Asuna printing far too many Chupa-Tees to sell, to [[spoiler:Negi being turned into a chupacabra as punishment for revealing magic to normal humans]]. Even in the Spring OVA, a small portion is spent on a Chupacabra hunt, and at the very end, a Chupacabra is seen watching the plane fly away.
** The Chupacabra shown here is much more comical than most versions, resembling more a spotted potato with fangs than anything else.

* The Chupacabra is referred to by name in ''KeroroGunsou'', complete with a RecycledInSpace variant called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Space Chupacabra]], but eating goats is never brought up - it's still considered as urban myth though, and the resident mythological-creature-hunter Alisa Southerncross goes after it - but gets [[TheWorfEffect curbstomped bigtime]] as it ''eats'' her surrogate father Nevula.

* In the VideoGame/{{Touhou}} manga ''Manga/TouhouSuzunaanForbiddenScrollery'', Remilia adopts one as a pet. Which kind of makes sense since she's a vampire.
