* Due to complaints from animal rights groups, some festivals have banned the use of live goldfish, as they often end up being won by those who have no understanding of proper goldfish care. Because of this, many goldfish scooping stalls replace the live fish with toy fish or specially-decorated bouncy balls instead.

* The game itself is not directly seen in ''WeissKreuz'', but flashbacks to Fujimiya Ran's StartOfDarkness show him and his little sister Aya attending a festival, and include a shot (poignant or {{Anvilicious}} depending on your perspective) of a goldfish caught in such a game flopping helplessly on the ground after Aya-chan is run down by a car.

* In the ''LightNovel/FullMetalPanic! Overload!'' manga, Kaname and Sousuke attend a festival and try their hands at the GoldfishScoopingGame. Kaname's efforts are completely fruitless, but when Sousuke's turn comes, he drops a grenade into the tank: "The shockwave from the explosion stuns the fish. ''That's'' an efficient method of fishing."
*** We're talking about a man who detonated his school's entry hall with a plastic explosive ''because his shoe locker may have been opened''. If he didn't respond to everyday situations with [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill gratuitous overkill]], it wouldn't be Sousuke.

* The boys in ''Manga/KimiToBoku'' wonder the [[WhatMeasureIsANonHuman morality]] of the game when they note it potentially dangerous for the fish due to the quality of the nets. They end up catching several fish when they bug the shop-owner to give them better nets.

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', Isogai plays the goldfish game during a local summer festival, and (probably thanks to his assassination training) manages to catch ''a plastic bag full of goldfish''. [[SupremeChef He cooks those fish as meal later on]].
