* ''TenchiMuyo'' punctuates many of its jokes with Kabuki sounds, and the ''tsuzumi'' and ''okawa'' are heard in the EyeCatch.

* The 2006 {{OVA}} {{Reboot}} of ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has used ''tsuzumi'' strikes to punctuate Setsuna's more {{samurai}}-like moments.
* The anime ''{{Naruto}}'' makes use of Kabuki sounds in background themes. Often taken up a notch with Jiraiya, who not only dresses like someone right out of Kabuki theatre, but also has a habit of announcing himself using common mannerisms. He also moves like a Kabuki actor, most notably the hopping step and slow hand wave.

** Also from SNK, at least half of the ''SamuraiShodown'' soundtrack is entirely played with traditional Kabuki instruments, in keeping with the general mood of the game (especially where Kyoshiro is concerned, since he's a Kabuki actor). [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7oNxnlg7oI Behold.]]

* Plugging in four controllers in to a [[NintendoGamecube Gamecube]], holding the Z button down on all of them, and starting up the console will play a tsuzumi accompanied by the "Ooowoooh!" noise instead of the normal start up sounds.

* ''FatalFury Special'' uses this in Geese's CPU stage, and ''Real Bout Fatal Fury Special'' has a BonusBoss fight with him as well in his rooftop pagoda. The intro to the fights has several doors sliding open, punctuated with ''okawa'' beats, and the fight music itself (titled "Soy Sauce for Geese") has several tsuzumi beats and the "Ooowooh" voice as well (at least in the RBS version).

* When Music/DavidByrne was commissioned to provide interstitial scenes (i.e. "knee plays") for a Robert Wilson stage show, his initial idea was to score them with traditional kabuki percussion. He got partway through, then decided a different approach was needed. The finished version of ''The Knee Plays'' was brass band music. However, the 2007 CD reissue includes five selections of Byrne's original kabuki score, as bonus tracks.
