* Commonly seen in ''Manga/SazanEyes'' in the design of demons and other monsters, more often than not paired with CreepilyLongArms. Sometimes, perfectly normal looking charactes will suddenly sport longer fingers with claw-like nails when turning more demonic, as seen with Mme Huang's Yao Gui form, Yoko Ayanokoji/Hua She and with Shiva upon turning into Gui Yan Wang and losing control in Pai's memory of the event.

* OlderThanDirt: There was a family of tiny, birdlike dinosaurs called [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scansoriopterygidae Scansoriopterygids]] that had very long fingers. The purpose of these fingers was the subject of debate for a long time; most thought they were used the same way aye-ayes use their fingers, others believed they were used for climbing.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Onmyoji}} Onmyōji]]'': Just look at Ibaraki-dōji's hand (he only has one hand, by the way). He's a good guy, though.

The one big drawback to using this this trope in live action media is that human actors are unlikely to be able to handle extra knuckles or delicate motions, which is why animatronics and CGI fare better. Actors with these finger extensions are usually limited in their range of hand motions, being unable to make a fist, wield guns or more generally grasp thin objects.
