* ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' - Rei, a {{miko}} as well as a MagicalGirl, uses these to complement her magic. They have effects such as dispelling a [[TakenForGranite petrifying venom]], immobilizing the MonsterOfTheWeek, and [[HoistByHisOwnPetard making Jadeite's possessed planes chase him instead of the Senshi]]. Mostly used for immobilization so Usagi can attack, though.

Mostly used for immobilization so Usagi can attack, though. Noteably the only Senshi attack not tied to her transformed state (though it's given stock footage anyways). In the anime she combines it with her actual Senshi powers to create the Fire Soul Bird attack, while in the Manga, Minako gets to use the attack during a side story that involved Rei getting possessed.

* 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.

These paper tags, also known as "[=ofuda=]", are used in UsefulNotes/{{Shinto}} and {{Onmyodo}} for purification and exorcisms or as wards. They are sometimes used with [[ZigzagPaperTassel Shide]], and most commonly at [[ShrinesAndTemples Shinto Shrines]] or by {{Miko}}.

Taoists also use a version of the tags called ''[=Fu=]''. In UsefulNotes/{{Buddhism}} and UsefulNotes/{{Hinduism}} they are called ''[=Sutras=]''. In Korean shamanism they are known as Pujok.
