* Yukina of ''Anime/SenkoNoNightRaid'' is shown wearing a qipao in a lot of official art. While this kind of makes sense given the series' Chinese setting, she never wears one within the actual series.

* In ''LustCaution'', Wong Chia-chi wears a qipao as part of her bored upper-class woman persona. In one scene, she goes to the tailor in the company of Mr. Yee to have a new one fitted, but it turns out to be slightly too tight. The result does not leave Mr. Yee indifferent.

In popular culture, nothing spells "Chinese" like a ''qipao'', so if a [[AnimeChineseGirl Chinese girl]] or a DragonLady shows up in a work, the chances are high that she'll be wearing one. The ''qipao'', or at least a dress cut like it, is also occasionally worn by non-Chinese women, as its tight fit and [[ShowSomeLeg slit up the side]] ramp up the sexiness of the character while still being relatively modest. Almost always used as {{Fanservice}}.
