* In ''LightNovel/RentalMagica'', meets DeathDealer. Because {{Onmyodo}} adepts can be ''that'' badass too.
* ''VisualNovel/HarukanaruTokiNoNakaDe'''s [[{{Onmyodo}} onmyoji]] Abe no Yasuaki and [[{{Expy}} Abe no Yasutsugu]] use these; the effect varies from creating energy shields to exorcism to just plain stopping some [[SmallAnnoyingCreature annoying]] SleepModeSize'd {{youkai}} from following them around.

* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' - Lei-Lei uses the Taoist variant since she's a jiangshi.



* These have a particularly funny use in the first ''Film/AChineseGhostStory'' movie. The unlucky protagonist, having gotten his clothes soaked, accidentally backs into a stall selling these, ending up with six of them stuck to his back (and the inscriptions remaining after the angry shopkeeper peels them off, resulting in another dunking later).



** For the rest of the series, paper talismans are commonly employed as demon-killing tools by taoists and sorcerers, as Hasrath Hahn or Steve Long, most notably to [[spoiler: protect the world-wide communication system from Shiva's soul-harvesting spell.]]

* The first member of the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Juttenkun]] to appear in ''Manga/SoulHunter'' is Yotenkun, whose spacial Paopei [[YourSoulIsMine Rakkonjin]] consist in a vast, cilindrical space full of massive paper charms of varying size, from which he can fire [[OneHitKill soul-reaping beams of light]]. Even outside of his Paopei, he can summon the "Rakkon Talismans" to blow things up, a technique that is later copied by Yozen.


Added DiffLines:

* The {{youkai}} killer and exorcist Hyo from ''Manga/UshioAndTora'' frequently employs paper charms along with his roped darts. [[spoiler: During his final duel with his nemesis Guren, it's revealed that he managed to put [=Ofuda=] charms even inside his own body, like the arm Guren just ate, which are then used to kill the rogue Azafuse from the inside out.]]

* These are a major gameplay mechanic in ''IzunaLegendOfTheUnemployedNinja''. Talismans can be used directly to cast spells or stuck onto equipment to customize it.

* ''Manga/DragonBall'': The Mafuba (Evil Containment Wave) lets one use any mundane container -- even an electric rice cooker -- to [[SealedEvilInACan seal away an opponent]. In the Piccolo Jr. Saga of the original series, Kami gets around this by simply writing the kanji for the technique on the jar itself (though the fact that he's {{God}} probably helps), while in the Future Trunks Saga of ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', the technique would have defeated an immortal enemy if Goku hadn't forgotten the ''ofuda''[[note]]In the manga he accidentally grabbed one of [[DirtyOldMonk Master Roshi]]'s coupons for a naughty cabaret shows instead; in the anime he forgets it completely[[/note]].
