* ''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.

* The usual Japanese interpretation of the character of Sha Wujing (though they call him Sa Gojyo) from ''Literature/JourneyToTheWest'' is that he's a kappa, or at least something very similar to one.

* ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'' kappa are a bit different, basically being an entire civilization of aquatic {{mad scientist}}s. They do have the ability to control water, but generally aren't terribly adept at magic, and the only named kappa character is known more for her missiles and cloaking device. As per usual for the series, they're depicted as {{Cute Monster Girl}}s whose only turtle-y characteristic are overstuffed green backpacks evocative of shells. How friendly they are to humans depends on which canon sources you focus on.

* Karasuma from ''SchoolRumble'' once dressed up as a kappa. It's also a pun, since "kappa" is slang for "rain coat" (which is the ''exact'' function of said costume, complete with leaf-shaped umbrella). He even once lent said costume to Tenma once when she was stranded in a bus stop due to heavy rain.
