* In one episode of ''YoureUnderArrest'', there was a burglar who disguised himself as the old woman whose home he was stealing from. One of her friends visits to return a borrowed piece of furniture, and asks where the cat is. The burglar answers that it's outdoors at the moment, and in doing so accidentally reveals himself as an impostor, because the "cat" is actually a maneki neko statue. (This episode changed almost all of the details from the manga version of this storyline, which didn't feature a maneki neko.)

* This is encountered in many ethnically Chinese or Hong Kong restaurants and takeaways in Great Britain. Perhaps this is also a Chinese meme adopted from the Japanese long before WW2; older Hong Kong people who remember the occupation of 1941-45 (and often their children) are not temperamentally given to be sympathetic to Japanese culture.

* A waving maneki neko belonging to The Devil is a central plot point in ''Literature/TheWeirdness''. Since it never stops waving, it's actually a source of infinite energy and actually threatens to destroy the universe. The cover art of the book features a rather stylish evil maneki neko, though in the book proper it's quite mundane looking.
