* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 2}}'' has a variation on the whole pinky-swearing idea. After being asked for help, the PC can ask a minor NPC to cut off his right pinky in order to "seal the deal," presumably to test if he is serious about his promise or not. The NPC may or may not agree to do it. If he does, a [[KarmaMeter good]] player can stop him before he actually does so, but [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential an evil PC]]...
** ...can then tell him to [[ChaoticEvil fry it up and eat it]]. At that point, the NPC will try to kill you.

* One piece of promotional art in ''VisualNovel/{{Ever17}}'' depicts two of the characters, Coco and Sara, floating in the sea with pinkies clasped. Interesting in that [[spoiler:the two of them apparently never interact or even meet in-story until the very end, but have a mysterious connection nonetheless]].

* In ''Fanfic/FairyDanceOfDeath'', Asuna uses this to bond with a traumatized pre-teen girl.
--> She leaned a little closer, and stage-whispered unnecessarily. "Can you keep a secret? A really ''big'' secret?"\\
"Sure."\\
"''Yubikiri''?" Asuna smiled as she held up her pinky finger. Yuuki smiled too—the first time she'd done so—and pinky-swore.

"Yubikiri" means literally "finger cut", likely because of the timeless punishment of cutting off a finger if you fail or break a promise or contract (still practiced today amongst some yakuza and other gangsters), so the last bit of the promise is literally "our fingers have been cut!" to seal the deal. Also, the term ''hari senbon'', while meaning literally "1,000 needles", is also a regional slang term for a pufferfish, which is covered with 'needles' when inflated. So, they could also be promising to make you drink a puffer fish, which obviously would be painful, followed by a rather nasty death by neurotoxin.
