* ''Manga/OmujoOmutsuJoshi''
** The first part of the title, "Omujo", is a portmanteau of the second, '''Omu'''tsu '''Jo'''shi.
** Shouta is fond of these. When he learns that Ichigo, a classmate who wears diapers because of a weak bladder, has gone somewhere with Morei, a childhood friend he incorrectly believes has a fetish for diapers, he wonders if they're "diapals". During an encounter with Muni, who he knows for a fact has such a fetish, he mentally refers to her as a "diapervert".
