* 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.

* The plot of the third SuperFamicom ''RanmaOneHalf'' fighting game involves all the characters tracking down the ingredients to create the legendary ''maneki neko'' of the Musk Dynasty, who are known in Japanese as the ''Jyakou Maneki''. Therefore, they're hunting down the ''[[PunnyName Jyakou Maneki Neko]]''. This artifact is said to grant the user one wish, of any kind -- and with so many characters suffering gender-bending curses, animal-transformation curses, unrequited love, etc. etc. etc., they're all determined to have the maneki neko grant their wishes.
