* In "Hard Luck", a Season 4 episode of ''WesternAnimation/CodeLyoko'', in which Odd is suffering from a case of bad luck from a broken mirror, as the gang are traveling to one of X.A.N.A.'s Replika via the Skid are talking about bad luck -- to Odd's annoyance -- Yumi remarks something similar to the following: "People in Japan avoid anything to do with the number 4 because it sounds like the word for death."
* This shows up in ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'', most notably the final faceoff in the main Season 2 arc where four demon sorcerers assault the protagonists. Said demons have FourFingeredHands.

As a similar point of reference, building floors and apartments are (mis)numbered accordingly [[MissingFloor to omit the fourth floor]][[note]]The US does the same with the number 13. Floors will go straight from 12 to 14, while the UK skips Rm13.[[/note]] or substitute the numeral with an alternative sign, such as the letter F or 3A, and some Japanese people prefer to say "''yon''" (the ''kun'yomi'' for four) instead of "''shi''" (the conventional ''on'yomi''). Apparently the Japanese word form ''shi ni'' (four twos), which translates to 'death', gives [[{{Discworld}} the number eight]] a related association.
