* Dendy from ''WesternAnimation/OKKOLetsBeHeroes'' is revealed to be a kappa in "No More Pow Cards". The plot of that episode is that kappa don't have Pow Cards of their own because they are considered monsters that could never do anything heroic, when in reality they were just dislocated by urbanization and the stories of them drowning people were just unfounded rumors. She and K.O. go to the Pow Card factory to make the master computer recognize kappas.

* ''VideoGame/{{Smite}}'': The Kappa king Kuzenbo is one of the playable 'deities' there. He's not a God, but the game has included famous monsters from myth like Medusa, Fafnir or Bakasura, so Kuzenbo gets a pass to represent one of the most famous {{Youkai}} from the myth.
