* The ''VideoGame/FatalFrame'' series uses these to keep certain doors sealed until you find and photograph a specific item to remove the [=ofuda=] (in the third game, they're shaped like people), effectively similar to finally finding the proper "key" to "unlock" its door in order to make progress.

* In each of the first three parts of ''Manga/SazanEyes'', paper talismans play an important role:
** In the first part: while promising of capturing the "moster" haunting Huang's villa [[MrViceGuy Ling Ling]] offers a huge demon-repelling talisman for protection, causing all the presents (who are all supernatural beings of sort, unknown to her) to become scared and step back. Later on [[TheDragon Ju]] use a paper talisman to bind Pai. Said talisman is later used to finish him off.
** In the second part: [[FatBastard Zhou]] [[EvilSorcerer Gui]] can use paper talismans to cast magic, called "Soul Cutting Dragon" (Zhang Ling Long) and "Soul Freezing Dragon" (Dong Ling Long). He usually carries the blank papers and a pen with him.
** In the third part: Huang Shun Li/Xun Gui plans to summon a soul-eating monster called Quan for her plans, and it's said that 108 sacred talismans are required to make him manifest in a physical form. Said talismans also shields him from other magic, [[spoiler: but also make him easy to burn.]]
