* In ''{{Yaiba}}'' the Orb of Darkness is inhabitated by two kappa. The first one, Kerokichi is a small, kind and nerdy ButtMonkey who provides expositions and wants someone to play with. His brother Kerosuke is apparently the son of a kappa and Godzilla. Not only is he huge and breathes fire, but he's amazingly strong. Besides that his typical bald head is really hard.

* ''NagasareteAirantou'' has Tohno. The cute, cartoonish variety. Her presence never fails to point out the gaps in the main character's WeirdnessCensor.

* "The ForsakenChildren" has kappas as eastern water elementals. Other than that, they are identical to the original myth, including the obsession with human butts.

* ''VideoGame/YokaiWatch'': One of the {{Mascot Mook}}s from the series is a Kappa called Nogappa in Japanese and Walkappa in English. He is a SurferDude who loves cucumbers, but is known for being a bit of a spaced out CloudCuckoolander.

[[folder:Real Life]] * In one episode of ''Series/RiverMonsters'', Jeremy goes to Japan to hunt down the creature that may have inspired the Kappa. After extensive searching, he concludes the concept of Kappas originated from the Hanzuki, a type of Japanese giant salamander which resembles a fish with hands, has a flat head, and devours its prey with a sucking action.

* The Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles are mistaken for these in the third movie, where they are transported to Feudal Japan by means of a magical scepter. Which makes sense since, as is mentioned above, the most basic description of the common kappa is fundamentally a humanoid turtle.
