* The mecha in ''ZoneOfTheEnders'' are an odd variation - their hands have three fingers and ''two thumbs''.

Quite often, Western four-fingered characters have to be edited to have a fifth finger -- most notably ''WesternAnimation/BobTheBuilder''. Interestingly, this does ''not'' include Creator/{{Disney}} characters such as MickeyMouse, despite Disney's popularity in Japan--see ''Franchise/KingdomHearts''. Not a fan of their works being edited in any way, Disney is said to have paid USD 5 million a year to Japanese pressure groups to avoid being sued for Mickey's "insulting" four-fingered hands.[[note]]This was mentioned by the creators of the Oddworld videogame franchise in [[https://books.google.ru/books?id=6t6iL4wlfDcC&lpg=PA45&ots=Gfbc_5F1ds&dq=oddworld%20japan%20four%20fingers&pg=PA45#v=onepage&q&f=false their book]], where they also say they had to edit a finger off the player's character to avoid similar extortion.[[/note]]

* While ''most'' characters in the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' franchise have five fingers per hand, the character Fang the Sniper ([[{{Bowdlerise}} A.K.A. Nack the Weasel]]) has only four fingers per hand. This is generally attributed to the Yakuza idea, since he is the only Sonic character always drawn with three fingers. This was lampshaded in the original miniseries where a fish robot attacks a drawing of Sonic on a rock, then mumbles about how he should have realized it was fake because it had four fingers.

** The Tau and Kroot only have four digits a hand. The fluff has them logically using a base 8 system.

* In ''Toys/TheGrosseryGang'', any humans in supplemental materials, along with any adaptations where the Grosseries have limbs, give them four fingers. Despite this, Sewer Glove, a Grossery based on a cleaning glove, has five fingers.

** This makes for an amusing sight when, as Bogo is about to kick Judy off of her case, Nick proclaims that she still has ''ten'' hours to solve it -- while holding up all ''eight'' fingers.
