* 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.
